Longleat hosts Celebrity Wedding Planner

LONGLEAT Safari & Adventure Park has starred in an episode of the hit Channel 5 show ‘Celebrity Wedding Planner’ which was shown on Monday 3rd September.

Longleat was the setting for London couple Kap and Gigi Ling’s special day which was organised by the unlikely pairing of Neighbours veteran Ryan ‘Toadfish’ Moloney and former Ramsey Street soap star and comedian Mark Little.

Despite torrential rain, chaotic wedding planners and the unexpected inclusion of an Aboriginal storyteller into proceedings, the wedding proved to be an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.

Longleat’s Florence Wallace said, “It was certainly nothing like any other wedding we have ever hosted here at Longleat, but it was fantastic fun to be involved with, and both Ryan and Mark were clearly having a great time.

“In spite of their ‘unusual’ choice of wedding planners the most important thing is that  Kap and Gigi had an amazing day and we wish them the very best for their future life together. Thankfully for all of us I don’t think that either Ryan or Mark are planning to make this a permanent career change!”

Longleat is a highly popular venue for wedding couples. This year, for the first time in its 444-year history, Longleat House itself is also hosting private weddings.

Couples can choose from four unique locations for the ceremony, including the grand surroundings of the 16th century Great Hall, the more intimate atmosphere of Lord Bath’s Banqueting Suite, the opulence of the Green Library or the splendour of the ornate Orangery – with its views across the romantic Love Labyrinth rose garden.

Longleat also hosts weddings at its two recently-acquired luxury country hotels; The Bishopstrow House and Spa Hotel in Warminster and Homewood Park Hotel & Spa in Hinton Charterhouse, near Bath.

The programme was shown on Channel 5 and is available to watch online at demand5
