When should a couple book you?
To ensure we give the best service possible, we limit the amount of bookings we take per date. So booking early is always recommended, especially during the summer months.

Do you come out to see the venue? 
We know most of the venues very well, and so don’t always need to visit beforehand, although we are always able to meet the clients on site if required. 

Do you hire the equipment or arrive at the venue on the day and dress the room on the couples’ behalf?
We usually arrive at the venue in the morning and dress the room for them.

What would be your top tips for couples considering venue enhancement?
To ensure any lighting or drapes compliments the venue whilst keeping with any theme. Do not try and ‘change the room into something else’ or you might as well of booked a plain hotel suite! You also need to consider that any decoration, needs to work for the whole of the day, wedding breakfast and evening celebration.

What are you expecting see more mainstream/more common in the next year or two?
Couples are definitely using creative ceiling decorations more, both traditional fairy lights and more contemporary items, such as lanterns and lampshades. Very popular at present (and shows no sign of changing) are the vintage Edison style bulbs. We continually keep ahead of the latest trends, investing in the most up to date equipment from all over the world.

If you were getting married, how would you create the ultimate atmosphere in your venue?
Each couples' vision of the day is very personal, and can be very different from couple to couple and venue to venue. Traditional fairy lights are always a winner, the amount and style of them used is what differentiates each wedding.
