Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
A fantastic couple hosted a Harry Potter wedding here recently which was incredible! They had planned meticulously and the amount of detail was very impressive, they had thought of everything! Each guest had a personalised wand instead of a place card, a talking sorting hat was on the top table, the table plan was a huge Marauders map, the list goes on! They even had a banquet style wedding breakfast, with long tables in each house colour!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Your wedding is about you as a couple and you should not have to compromise on what you want. Too many couples make decisions based on what they think their guests will want them to do but you want to look back on your wedding day and have no regrets!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The groom had his new step-son help make and decorate their wedding cake, without telling him what it was for! They only told their children on the day that they were getting married!
