Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

That's a really a difficult one as they are all so different and memorable! I loved a black tie wedding with white on white details e.g. elegant white hydrangeas, Grace Kelly style gown, twinkly fairy lights, Lanvin dinner suits and white bow ties - gorgeous!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Just enjoy it - don't worry about a specific theme or recreating something painstakingly from Pinterest but rather focus on styles or a style you like - the rest will fall into place complete with all the little details and touches coming together harmoniously

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

One couple gave every guest a brand new shiny penny which they threw into our gorgeous fountain whilst making a wish!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

That's really difficult as there are so many but I personally love the views looking out over the Park as it's some of the finest in England and that creates a simply magical backdrop. Inside, the Grand Corridor with its french grey colour scheme, gilding, marble floor & domed ceilings creates a classic, timeless look that gives simply beautiful images

Many! People travel from all over the world to marry or have a house party at Lartington Hall

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mini lobster croque monsieur - delish!
