Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Our best wedding has to be the Wed Fest we created - they had bouncy castles, bucking broncos, games and music everywhere. The couple were fun loving and had everyone they loved surrounding them all day. There wasn't one moment where a guest didn't have a smile on their face. A truly wonderful day!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Sit down together and decide exactly what you want from the day - do you want a large event with loads of guests and lots of laughter and fun or do you want an intimate and romantic day with just your very close friends and family? Make sure you both have elements that reflect your personality during the day, something that is special to each of you that will make the day a wonderful day and will hold great memories for you.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One of our brides lost her mum a few months prior to her wedding. Her fiance placed a very simple but beautiful china dove with a photo of her mum propped up against it on the altar. He did this as a surprise so her mum was looking over her when she got married. A truly beautiful moment.
