Our sister company, the Box Tree Restaurant has got to be one of our favourite venues for holding beautiful intimate wedding celebrations. We are able to help with every element of the wedding whether this be just a simple small ceremony or the whole day including arrival drinks, the ceremony, drinks reception, canapes and a full wedding breakfast. The opulence of the building adds a luxurious feel to the day while the intimacy of smaller guest numbers also creates a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We have decided to share with you our answers to some common questions we often get asked about the venue…
Describe the best wedding that happened at the Box Tree
On the 30th December we held a beautiful intimate wedding for a fantastic young couple. With a small number of friends and family the bride and groom were able to spend real quality time with each of their guests. The atmosphere throughout the ceremony and wedding breakfast was so relaxed and everyone had a truly special day
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Trust the professionals, as fun as DIY weddings are enabling you to personalise elements of your special day, make sure don’t take on too much. Time is so precious on your big day, you don’t want the stress of organising little details to take away from the enjoyment of your day.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The personal touches are what really brings magic to the day and makes each wedding unique. One that springs to mind is when each guest were asked to find their seat by looking for the picture of themselves with the bride and groom instead of a simple name card. This sparked up lots of lovely conversations about happy memories with the couple from when the photos were taken.
Describe The Box Tree in 5 adjectives.
Elegant, Intimate, Decadent, Opulent, Luxurious
What’s your favourite canapé?
Of course all our canapés are exquisite and delicious! But our personal favourite would have to be the Salmon Ballotine with Crème Fraiche and Ebena Caviar, the bright colours of the fish with green herbs and decadence of the added caviar makes this canapé visually stunning as well as tasting amazing.
What is the Box Tree’s most unique feature?
As a listed building dating back to the 1720’s the unique feel of the Box Tree largely comes from the history and heritage within the building itself. The building has been beautifully restored and kept to an impeccable standard of luxury with many original features and pieces of furniture on show.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Developing a close working relationship with each of our couples and our willingness to always go the extra mile. We will always do everything within our power to ensure that weddings at the Box Tree run seamlessly and are as stress free as possible for everyone involved.
