Staying at the top of anything in life means dedication and a love of what you do, along with a genuine desire to make someone’s special day just perfect with a true belief in your product. The product in this case is stunning, beautifully positioned and maintained to meet the very exacting standards that today’s bride and grooms expect. This is the most important day in their lives, planned from a young age. It is a day to remember long after the event.
The venue choice is the catalyst for the wedding, be it a converted cow shed or historic 16th century country house hotel like Langdon Court. The popularity of country house weddings provides brides with a fairy-tale setting with everything they need, and a romantic backdrop for photographs, flowers and decorations - providing the house meets the exacting standards of contemporary chic rather than a rundown ancient pile.
The house needs to be light and airy with sunshine streaming through, modern facilities, particularly bathrooms and plumbing - no need to slum it just because the house is 500 years old!
Look for that all-important exclusive use, after all who wants strangers at their wedding? At Langdon Court everything is within the house and grounds for a perfect country house wedding: bedrooms (the bride can choose her favourite room rather than be pushed into the ubiquitous ‘bridal suite’), reception great food and evening entertainment, civil wedding licences or church wedding. Nearby St Werburg’s Church in Wembury was once part of the estate and overlooks the beach and sea crashing onto rocks means it is a favourite with brides.
The photos will be with you for the rest of your life dusted down from time to time to reminisce and reflect on a perfect day. The photo opportunities at Langdon Court include the beach and the stone walls, columns and grounds at Langdon Court.
Food choice and presentation will win you brownie points with your guests, so a kitchen full of 2 AA Rosette chefs is a must, real food restaurant fine dining quality made in house with the finest produce from the region.
