This depends on what we have taking place on the days leading up to the wedding. Usually they have access from 6am on the day of the wedding or the day before if the rooms are not being used and are set up. This is usually arranged with each couple.

What’s your best advice to couples when choosing their perfect wedding venue?

The venue has to feel right from the start, make sure you ask lots of questions (come prepared) this will give you a really good insight into the person showing you the venue, they are the face of the venue and will set the tone for your journey towards your special day.

Any finally, what are your favourite moments from previous wedding you’ve been involved with?

Every wedding is so special because the couples and their families have invested so much in every detail. My favourite moment at every wedding is when the couple see each other for the first time, will we ever be happier!

I also love those little snippets of time when the couple just get a moment to look at each other or to notice a particular element the day, it’s not long but it’s what makes the memories.
