Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Each and every wedding has had its own individual stamp on it... each day has been tailored to the couples' needs.
It is almost impossible to choose a best wedding!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the process of planning your wedding and work as a team!
It may be stressful at times, but I am here to take the stress away and I want you to enjoy the entire process.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One wedding we had at our venue had lots of children in attendance, so they dedicated an entire room for the children to hang out in, which meant the grownups had a stress-free day and the children felt like grownip- they had tipis up, loads of different activities, child minders and it was such a lovely touch!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Beautiful, breathtaking, elegant, unique and homely.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
I personally love the gardens to the front of the hotel; there is such a wide variety of greenery, all of which compliments each other.
However, with the right photographer, anywhere can be made picture-perfect!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We regularly have celebrities staying at our hotel- we are so close to the Elstree Studios so it is regularly used as a hang-out for the A-listers!
We have also hired out the venue for filming within the hotel itself for Celebrity Come Dine With Me, Friday Night Dinner and The One Show to name a few... but my highlight was a film called "Let Them All Talk" which came out in November 2020- they hired the venue exclusively for over a month for filming and Meryl Streep was the lead and she was SO lovely!!
What’s your favourite canapé?
Our Ham Hock Croquettes are my favourite from our Canape menu... they are so scrumptious.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
It has to be our stonebaked pizzas!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The Tudor-Style exterior which is beautifully complimented by the original feature woodwork in the hotel's entrance.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
We're super proud of all of the staff here at The Manor; their professionalism and kindness shines through on the cloudiest of days. They always put guests and clients first and go above and beyond to make everything perfect.
