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.
4. Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

5. Where's the best photo spot at your venue?
Our ceremony room captures the perfect pictures with the romantic lighting and twinkling fairy lights – The long awaited first kiss shots as newly weds are always a tear jerker. However, the fields that are surrounding Larkspur Lodge create the most breath-taking photographs.
6. Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
In our local area, there are many celebrities and some of them host events and even come along as guests to Larkspur Lodge – there was even an event held for one of England’s footballers!
7. What’s your favourite canapé?
We love our ‘Mini Tacos & Tequila’ – The perfect Mexican treat!
8. What’s your favourite midnight treat?
A slice of wedding cake and a glass of champagne please!
9. What is your venue's most unique feature?
Our ceremony room fixed seating, we have reclaimed cinema seating in the ceremony room which faces in as a runway aisle. One of the top trends for ceremony seating at the moment. This creates such a personal ceremony as everyone looks in on you.

Perfect place for an intermate wedding
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
Beautiful venue, incredible team
Nothing short of perfection!
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!
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!
