Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Impossible to answer- being a bespoke venue they have all been so different, rather than mass produced package weddings!

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

Enjoy it and take advantage of the help that is offered!

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

A table plan surrounded by a collage of photo's of every single guest - great fun for the guests to look at on the day and a wonderful keepsake for the bride and groom.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Bespoke, unconventional, friendly, professional, magical!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Under the oak tree with a backdrop of the now infamous Pattiswick sunset

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

Now that would be telling... discretion is guaranteed at all times.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

chocolate truffle washed down with a glass of fizz

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our most unique feature will be (from Spring 2018) our brand new bridal room, with one way glass, allowing the bride to watch as all her guests and future husband arrive (without them knowing!)

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our wonderful, dedicated, professional and caring team.
