Do you have any vendors you love working with, we would love to know?
We have 4-6 companies in photography (Feather & Finch is one of them), catering and entertainment that we love to work with and that give our couples great value and most importantly professionalism. Once our couples have booked we find out what they like and give our best recommendations in each category but couples can choose anyone they want and we are open to working with new suppliers (as long as they have the appropriate accreditation).
If you could choose would you suggest winter, summer autumn or spring to be married?
We are situated in the middle of 200 acres of hills and farmland each season has different look and feel, if you like bright green backdrops then November to June will work for you if you like a mix of green and golden hues then July to October. We have air conditioning and fireplaces so year round comfort is not an issue but most brides have a clear preference between the warm and cold seasons.
