Wedding Open Afternoon – Plum Park

Yesterday we spent the afternoon at Plum Park Wedding Open Afternoon meeting lots of excited engaged couples and their families!  Just love this venue! Plum Park is situated in between Milton Keynes and Towcester – with it’s easy access it’s perfect for any couple getting married in the area. Not only is this a gorgeous, family run wedding venue but the service and attention every couple receive is absolutely excellent.


Yesterday was extremely cold – how lovely that we were met with an roaring open fire as we arrived! Lovely for those romantic winter weddings!

We were joined by many of Plum Park’s recommended suppliers – all hand picked because they are brilliant!!  All of the recommended suppliers have worked together for years and built up a fantastic trust and rapport, which means we can ensure your big day goes without a hitch!
