Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have so many beautiful weddings that it's difficult to choose just one. Each has their own wonderful theme with so much attention to detail, but one that stands out was a 60's themed wedding where the bride was escorted down the drive by 50 vintage scooters!

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

Choose a venue like Prested, where you will be allocated your own personal wedding co-ordinator. Build a relationship with them and it will be worth its weight in gold. Our wedding planners will take care of every last little detail, including contacting your suppliers, ensuring times are confirmed etc.

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

At a wedding recently we had place cards to put out on the table plan, but each person had been allocated a special animal place card holder. It was a lovely detail and each guest got to keep their particular animal to take home as a memento of the wedding.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Charming, personal, welcoming, warm, friendly

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Somewhere either overlooking or next to the 15th century moat. There are so many great photo opportunities for photographers around the 75 acres of grounds here at Prested.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes, we've had many celebrities here at Prested, but we are much too discrete to mention them by name!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Miniature burgers with home made relish

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon roll with lashings of brown sauce, or homemade cakes

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our 15th Century moat, and the pretty wooden & brick gazebo next to it, fully licensed for civil ceremonies.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our staff - nothing is ever too much trouble and all our staff have the same kind-hearted nature. We're human beings - we're often in tears at the weddings ourselves - and nothing matters more to us than our guests happiness.
