Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Although we have had quite a few great weddings, the one that sticks in my mind is the couple that chose to go off cue completely to the traditional food choice and went with curry & rice which turned out to be the most talked about wedding food there is. The couple wanted it to be relaxed, informal and a family affair and it was just great to be part of such a laid back feel good wedding.

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

Always visit a few 'different' kinds of venues to make sure you are really looking for what you want, and when you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach then you know its right for you.

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

We had a bride who was obsessed with Highland cows and unbeknown to the bride her mother had secretly arranged for a highland calf to be onsite after the ceremony. The happy couple went off to have some wedding pictures done and were totally shocked and surprised to see the calf, I can honestly say the look on the brides face was one of utter elation and was truly worth a thousand words. So you see nothing is impossible :-)

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Laid back, rustic, shabby chic, romantic, vintage.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have quite a few different areas to choose from but my personal favourite is by the old mill water wheel.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Cucumber Bites with Herb Cream Cheese and Cherry tomato.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Cheese & crackers.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We include an exclusive 2 night hire of our glamping accommodation site which means that friends and family can travel from far and wide and all get together the night before or the night after the wedding for a bbq or just a chill out catch up time together.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

All of our staff members that are involved in the lead up to and also on the big day as nothing is too much trouble for them and they endeavour to make the wedding day as relaxed, laid back, stress free as they possibly can, all this with a great smile on their faces.
