Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We are so lucky to have been able to help so many really lovely couples celebrate their wedding here at Larchfield and love to see couples grinning from ear to ear as they say I do. From Emelie Sande singing at her friends wedding here, to circus skills greeting guests, hosting a wedding in deep snow (a freak storm, thank goodness for generators and snow ploughs!) to simple rustic flowers, home decorating the barn. It genuinely is a pleasure to live and work here and for our fantastic team to help each and every couple with their vision for their perfect day...
