Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We don’t have favourites! All weddings are unique and brilliant in our view. We have such a variety from circus to fairs, Rock chick to Wimbledon themes. That's why we say "your day your way". We mean it! So if a big wheel and bumper cars are your thing or picnic and vintage afternoon tea you'll be at the right place when you book Lillibrooke.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
We love the back drop of our Manor House but everyone chooses their own favourite. You are spoilt for choice in our 15 acres of grounds but it is also quite compact so no need to disappear for an hour while your guests get bored! Any of the ancient brick walls and old garden gates are a photographer dream.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We were featured on an early don't tell the bride. It gets repeated alot so you might remember it. They married outside in the clositer garden and set up a fair in the field followed by a reception and party in the Great Barn. George Clarke has been here too but that was for filming of Shed of the Year!
What’s your favourite canapé?
Ooh that's tricky! Tempura coated vegetables were very tasty but of course they are all good!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Hot chocolate with marshmallows! We do a great posh bacon bap which goes down really well for a midnight treat.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
We have one of the largest Barns in the south of England.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
The Staff. I love the way they always get a personal thank-you in reviews. There is a real relationship built up over the year or two between booking and send off.
