Top Wedding Tips

Wear your shoes in!...... This is super important! If you can, wear them around the house for a couple of hours a day whenever you can! It means there should then be no ‘new shoe pinch’ and no blister

Brief the bridal party!...... Make sure they all know their duties on the day. Are there any guests to keep an eye on after one too many? Who has to help with your dress during toilet breaks?

Don’t stress!!.... Everything is in place, everything has been booked, seating plans are done; guests are all ready for a brilliant day. Just enjoy this week, spend time together before the big day!!

With having to postpone our wedding because of Covid, our venue have been amazing. We have gone for a package and leaving all the organisation to them, which they have been amazing with. The venue looks extra beautiful since their recent renovations over lockdown! I can’t wait to get married at this beautiful venue.

The orchard, maidstone
Amazing venue. This was our wild card when lookkng at venues, we thought we had already chosen another venue but fell in love with this place immediately. It is exactly what we wanted in every way and we love that so much is included as part of a package deal to make our wedding planning even easier. The wedding coordinators we have dealt with so far are absolutely amazing and have always been on hand any time we have had any questions. So friendly, helpful and we honestly cannot wait to get married here in July next year x
