FAQs

1. Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It's always tough to single out a particular wedding. However we would have to shout out, Ross and Nicholas!
Just after covid, where we all hadn’t been able to show off our love – Ross and Nicholas got married. This was a small intimate wedding and there were many beautiful moments during the day. One of them being how Nicholas had published a book called ‘The 2 Bears’ all about their lovestory and the couple gave this out as a wedding favour to their guests. Nicholas is a professional dancer, and they shared a special moment by having their first dance under a sky full of fairy lights in our ceremony room.

2. What is your No.1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Create a wedding email! Not just to help with planning in general but you can ask your wedding guests to send over their RSVPs to this too! When you have a ‘Wedmin’ day, you can open up your inbox and know all of your email are in one place! Often personal inboxes can get full of junk and it's easy for important wedding emails to get lost – Especially those all-important final details and payments.

3. What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

To make a table plan a little less formal, it is always lovely when you have a photograph of you and each guest, then as they turn it over it reveals where they are seated. Once the guests get to the table, there is a personal message written to each individual guest of memories they have shared together.

Perfect place for an intermate wedding

This venue was the very first place that we visited when we got engaged 2 years ago.

As soon as I walked into the ceremony room I realised that it was a former masonic hall and my Dad, who has passed, was a mason so I knew it was a sign straight away that this was the place for our special day and booked it

It is the most perfect place you will have for your wedding and nothing is too much trouble for Sophie and the team at Larkspur Lodge.

I would fully recommend Larkspur Lodge for your Special Day

The Perfect Wedding

Thank you Larkspur Lodge for making our wedding day so special and so perfect. They were on hand from the very beginning to help us navigate the planning - and on the day took charge of everything so me and my husband could enjoy every single moment of the day without a worry. A beautiful venue with stunning grounds and the most beautiful ceremony room. Thank you to all the team for everything you did for us. We are so grateful! Lots of love, The Lameys x

Beautiful venue, incredible team

Larkspur was the first venue we visited and we fell in love. We went on to look at several others but none gave us the goosebumps, “it’s the one!” feeling like Larkspur did when we stepped into that beautiful ceremony room! The venue is well cared for with plenty of beautiful, always-there details - rustic sideboard, the decorated ceiling lights, the full-length mirrors, lots of small, boho-vibe details that give it a lovely vibe. The fire engine is a quirky bonus and our guests loved the pizza from there in the evening! The staff were super responsive and flexible in letting us personalise our day to meet our vision. The ceremony room with its checkered floor, vintage cinema seats, bare beams/brick and fairy lights is the most beautiful, romantic setting. We loved all the other spaces - from the whisky snug to the bar and the outdoor area!! We made use of the Bridal Prep room in the morning which was a perfect space for all our bridal party prep. And the entire space was perfect for our medium sized wedding. Food by Fork&Field was incredible and actually we preferred the reduced stress of not having to find our own caterer! The staff were super attentive on the day and everything ran seamlessly. Definitely definitely recommend.

Nothing short of perfection!

We can’t quite put into words just how incredible the team at Larkspur are. From start to finish, each and every member of staff we encountered or had contact with provided us with exceptional, professional and friendly service. We owe our wedding to Sophie, who worked tirelessly to ensure that every aspect of our day was just as we dreamed it would be. With her knowledge of the industry, her approachability and flexibility, and her driving force nature, Sophie made our dream a reality alongside her amazing team. Erin who ensured the catering side of our day ran seamlessly, with a smile on her face. Hannah who updated files, was present at meetings, was super responsive to emails and who on the day provided support, encouragement and a reassuring arm to settle the nerves. James who worked alongside Erin to ensure that the food we ate was nothing short of perfection and that our evening could go ahead as planned and finally the lovely Caitlin who facilitated and coordinated the day, alongside her colleagues, ensuring that all the finer details were in place.
Larkspur Lodge is a haven where dreams really do become a reality thanks to the dedicated, committed and incredible staff team. The building itself is steeped in history, yet with a modern, rustic feel. The outdoor space provides the perfect sanctuary for soaking up the sunshine in the summer and spring months or watching nature take its course during the autumn and winter months, with a drink in hand as the day unfolds.
The natural grounds around the lodge allow for the most idyllic photographs and the ceremony room is like nothing you’ve ever seen before!
We were blessed to stumble upon this incredible venue and urge anyone who hasn’t already, to visit the lodge and allow the most amazing team of angels to bring your dreams to reality too!
Thank you Larkspur Lodge and all of your wonderful staff for giving us the best day of our lives!

Our dream venue!

If you haven't yet considered Larkspur Lodge, go for a viewing! You will be amazed. It was our first venue we looked at and we knew instantly that was to be our wedding venue. It's modern, clean, inviting, spacious - and looks so sophisticated.

The team are fantastic, nothing is too much of an issue or a hassle - they really want to make sure you have the best day - and trust us, we did!

For everything you get at Larkspur in terms of a package, catering, venue, staff - it's fantastic value for money. They even have security on the evening too which was an added bonus for us - who helped arrange taxis at the end of the night which was greatly appreciated.

Thank you Larkspur!
