Welcome to the next in our series of supplier reviews and today we have our first venue. If you are looking for an 18th Century Country Inn surrounded by fields then look no further. In the sleepy Kent village of Staple you will find The Three Tuns owned by Steve and Donna. I contacted Steve prior to my first wedding there and he was extremely keen to meet me and walk me through the day. It was apparent from our first meeting that he was dedicated to ensuring the success of the day. He showed me where the Bride would be getting ready, walked me through the running order and pointed out great photographic opportunities. He was however less keen on us dying his sheep for photographic effect but it was worth a try!
On the day itself the attention to detail was once again apparent, Steve and Donna went out of their way to make us feel welcome and part of the 'team'. On the following day I had to call them to advise that our gaffer tape - used to make the Photobooth cables safe - had marked the pub floor. I expected to be presented a bill but instead was thanked for my honesty and told not to worry about it.
Nice people, fantastic old pub - what more can I say. I have chosen the Three Tuns as our first venue review because I really enjoyed working there, just looking forward to our next wedding there.
