Marketing manager Sean Walsh said: '˜Your wedding day is a day to be remembered, and your venue should be too.

'˜The venue is extremely important, as ultimately if something goes wrong with your venue, or it's not quite right, it can have a huge impact on your big day.

'˜It's great to see people exploring beyond the norms to make their day that extra bit special.'
