Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

That is such a difficult question, as we have held so many fantastic weddings, but if we had to pick a favourite it would probably be a wedding we held in 2016 that was festival themed. The couple literally thought of everything from lanyards with the day's itinerary for every guest, to garden games, live bands playing throughout the day, an ice cream van, and even a special pizza delivery for the bride and groom at the end of the night. It was so much fun and they had clearly put in a lot of time into planning a day they would never forget.

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

Keep CALM!! We know sometimes it can be easier said then done, but we've seen so many couples almost ruin it for themselves because they have got so stressed about details that in the end don't matter. Remember to stay calm and try to enjoy the planning. Everything goes by so quick...relish it!
