Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Oh I couldn't pick one! Summer weddings are always a favourite when the drinks reception can be spent outside in the sunshine!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Do not worry about the little things and just enjoy every minute of your magical day together! We will take care of everything behind the scenes so that all you need to focus on is absorbing all the love and the amazing memories in the making with your family and friends!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We had a really special visit once from a couple of storm troopers who were moving around the hotel and even took part in the wedding ceremony. They offered lots of interesting photo opportunities for both the couple and their guests!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Quirky, rustic, relaxed, friendly, romantic
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
You can take a romantic stroll down the river towards our marina and step out on one of the little jetties for dreamy pictures. Quirky boathouses and by-passing Swans on the water give you the perfect backdrop for your wedding pictures. Our beautiful Nature Trail also make a lovely setting and you may even be lucky enough to catch a charming steam train going past in the background!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We get lots of celebrities coming to stay at the hotel, but we haven't had one at a wedding just yet! We have words that Harry Styles' sister is attending one next year though!
What’s your favourite canapé?
The mini Cumberland sausages with a honey and mustard glaze are particularly moorish and are always the first to run low!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Who can resist a bacon/sausage or fish finger butty after a few glasses of prosecco!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Not only do we have stunning and romantic indoor spaces, we are also lucky enough to have the beautiful river Leven right on our doorstep as well as the gorgeous five-arched stone bridge across it which dates back as far as 1651. It is a truly grand entrance to the hotel and provides amazing photo opportunities.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
We love all the quirky décor and the esthetics of the hotel, and the fact that we are family friendly is something we really shout about. And although it is not finished yet, we are super excited for the huge development the hotel is currently undergoing - with 30 new bedrooms and a new spa with hydrotherapy in-and-out pool, outdoor hot tubs, thermal rooms - it will be a great experience for yourself and your guest to enjoy during their time with us!
