Location & Contact Details
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’s your #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.

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.
