Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
It is hard to pin point a wedding, we offer such a wide variety of options to each of our couples. I guess, personally our first wedding we did in the treehouse was a momentous one, as it opened new options to us. But saying that the best wedding is each and every one we see right through from start to finish.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember, no matter who says this is how you should and shouldn't do something, and who says this is right or wrong, it is your wedding day, and so you should remember to do what you want.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Any themed wedding with specific details are always great to see.
