Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Have to choose two I'm afraid to capture both ends of the spectrum. One was a very small natural 'eco' wedding, really relaxed and personal. The other was quite a large affair with lots of guests, marquee, and band etc. What was lovely about that was the sheer enjoyment of loads of friends and family having a great time together.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get to the point where you can completely hand things over to someone else on the Big Day itself (ideally a few days before!). Whether a trusted friend, family member, or Wedding Coordinator takes it on, it's so much better for you to be able to simply enjoy your day.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Streams of tea lights leading through the woods, where a harpist played.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
There are loads! Depends what you'd like to capture. It could be in the Dell, with Grandmother Willow as a back drop, a more formal capture besides the Hall, or even with wellies on amidst Bertie and Piggles our beautiful pigs...
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
What’s your favourite canapé?
Hmm... so many to choose from! Two come to mind: mini Yorkshire puds with pieces of beef and horseradish, and Sweet potato, pine nut and feta tartlets. Yummy.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Port and cheese?! Pizza?!! Kebab??!! (Beccles Kebab is actually really good)
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Fully exclusive use of a creative and imaginative site.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
