Can you explain the process a couple can expect once they have booked their wedding with you right through to on the day of the wedding?
Once a couple have booked with us, we will be there for them during the whole planning process. We will arrange meetings throughout and help iron out any logistical problems. We work very closely with all our couples and are always available to offer advice. Our celebrant will help our couples write their vows to each other and in the final week there will be a rehearsal to put all minds at ease.
What has been one of your favourite weddings to host and why?
My favorite wedding was a family member, it was just amazing to have all my family enjoying the woodland, but saying that we have a wedding this summer involving donkeys and snail racing…I can’t wait.
