What No Water….?!

I’m always interested to know why couples who have enquired with us don’t follow through and make a booking. Apart from the fact that I’m curious, it just makes good business sense to know this so you can understand any shortcomings and try and do something about it. There seem to be an array of …

Paramedics, handfasting & Hawaii!

How much can you handle…?

A new job, house move and marriage all within a matter of months might phase most of us but not Cheryl and Adam! They clearly must be organised to have achieved all of this, especially with a little one to throw into the mix! It was another gorgeous day, the summer flowers were in bloom …

Tom & Jazz at Brook Farm Cuffley

A Tipi some Bhangra and the Good Old British Weather!

Our second wedding of the season was between Jazz and Tom who wanted a laid back, country style reception and chose a tipi to complement this theme. Tom and his groomsmen looked picture perfect in their tailored suits but they didn’t let that stop them getting involved and finishing off some last minute jobs. Bales …
