Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
One of our most memorable couples was a lovely couple where the Groom was serving in the military. The couple had a little boy together and he was just the cutest running around making everyone smile. For the ceremony the Groom wore his military uniform and their son wore a little kilt. It was the loveliest family orientated celebration I've seen.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Try to enjoy it as much as possible. It can be very stressful planning a Wedding with everyone having opinions on how your day should be but remember it is your day. As a couple you should enjoy the process as much as possible as when its all over you will feel sad. Make the decisions together and make them for yourselves not anyone else.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One couple had a photo slideshow playing during the drinks reception and there were pictures not just of them but there favourite photos of their guests and of the loved ones that were sadly no longer with them. It was beautiful to watch everyone else watching them.
