Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
One of our couples had a passion for gin - they used gin bottles as flower vases, invited their guests to 'find their seat, and let dinner be gin' - named their tables after various gins and used personalised Polaroid photos of their actual guests for their place cards!
