Wedding Planner

With almost 1000 weddings under her belt, you know you’re in safe hands with Solton Manor’s chief wedding planner! Karen has overseen weddings at Solton Manor for more than 10 years and in that time has helped hundreds of brides and grooms realise their perfect day. Here are her tips on how to have the best wedding at Solton Manor:

Take your time: “Solton Manor is such a magical setting and wedding days here should not be rushed. We work with our couples as early as possible to put together a timeline for their day so that there is plenty of time for everything they want to include.” 

Have a photo break: “Try to take a photo break after the wedding breakfast and before the arrival of evening guests. There are some delightful settings to capture extra special portraits of the Bride and Groom throughout the Solton Manor Estate. ‘Secret’ photo spots include the old chapel ruins and arbours, the woodland walks and the wildlife lake.”

Make it personal: “Every wedding at Solton Manor is amazing but it is always extra special when couples include things that they love doing together, such as travelling, music, sport or some other pastime. There are always ways of bringing little ideas into your day and we love to help couples plan those special touches.”
