Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Our previous Catering Manager Sam married her fiance Dean a few years ago in a pink and black themed do, and despite the dodgy British weather, they had an amazing marquee party, complete with whiskey bar, flip-flops and pink sweet table!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Share out the stress! Don't take everything on yourself - even if you are a perfectionist, you have carefully selected your bridesmaids and groomsmen: use them! They will be more than happy to share in the responsibilities of the run up to the big day, and the day itself.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We love the use of living flowers, and trees at weddings. Something that can be planted again, either by the guests or the couple themselves, as a lovely, permanent reminder of the day.
