Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Every wedding here has been different and fabulous in its own way however I love the creative aspect of my job and I do like a theme so one of my favourite past weddings has to be a funfair/Blackpool theme which was reflected in all the little details and in a fun yet tasteful way. I also love a bit of glamour and am really enjoying helping plan my brother's wedding which will be a New Years Great Gatsby black and gold theme. My favourite aspect of my job is giving each bride and groom the best day of their lives in a way that reflects them as a couple.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Timings and the flow of the day are key, as is keeping your guests well fed, I find guests rarely comment on the smaller details like favours but I do hear them complaining if they get hungry or have to wait around too long for photographs- there's nothing worse than seeing a guest buying crisps from the bar.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
At a Blackpool themed wedding there were postcards of a couple for guests to leave their wishes on instead of a guestbook which I thought was a lovely touch.
