What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have fun! At the time it may seem like you have 'To-do' lists as long as your arm, table plans coming out of your ears and your 'husband to be' may be nodding rather than answering but once all that planning has gone we promise you'll miss it! Remind yourselves every day why it is that you are doing this and savour every moment, every trip to your venue, every cake sample day and every dress fitting/try on experience!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One wedding we had here spent the 2 years of wedding planning trawling through Charity shops to find the perfect book for each guest to give as a favour - it was very personal and moving as they'd spent so much time searching for something that represented that particular guest!
We have also had a gardening loving couple coming up who have a guest book bench for people to sign that they can then get varnished and put in the garden to use - definitely can't be hidden in the cupboard!
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Oh that's a tough one - We have so many! Our quirky swings in Henry's Folly, our flower covered Lovers Water, The Pond Area at the back of the Enchanted Garden or around the raised beds of The Herb Garden - we love them all!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Probably the swings in the bedrooms! 7 of the 9 rooms have ornate swings in- which our guests love!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Theres two things - Firstly Winning the regional Award of Best Town/City Wedding Venue in the Wedding Industry Awards 2018 & 2019 and then the Team!
Our team is a really mixture of ages, personalities and characters! From the housekeeping staff that have been with us from the start. to the chefs who again have been with us around 0 years each, the managers, the restaurant and wedding staff, the maintenance staff and the partners- we really are one big family.
