Kimberley & Richard

The wedding of Kimberley & Richard at Parklands Quendon Hall

Why did you choose Parklands for your wedding?

We knew we wanted a venue that was exclusively ours for the day. We also wanted one with lots of accommodation on site because we knew it would be a big PARTY and really wanted everyone to let their hair down and just crawl into their beds at the end of the night/early hours of the morning. When we visited Parklands, we were blown away by the manor house and the grounds and just knew it was the one for us. 

Do you have any advice for a couple planning their BIG DAY?

Lists lol, I LOVE a list. I bought myself a planning notebook that I carried around with me in my handbag and every time I thought of something I would write it down or whenever I accomplished something I would tick it off my list. This really helped me to stay calm and feel in control of the planning. I tried not to stress about it and just kept telling myself what will be, will be and if something was to not go to plan, my guests would never even know about it. 

What were your favourite moments from the whole day?

I mean, the whole day was magical and surreal from start to finish. But a few of my favourite moments were walking back down the aisle as husband and wife and seeing the big smiles and feeling the love from everybody. Whilst eating our food and taking a moment to look out into the room and see everyone you love all under the same roof. And then of course – the PARTY…everyone was just so happy and excited and that night will be remembered by everyone.
