Asian couples are opting for stately home choice
THE stately homes of England are becoming venues of choice for a new generation of Asian brides, according to a wedding planner. 
Raj Somaiya of Manchester-based Payal Prestige said they are among the few preferred venues that offer enough space for Asian celebrations - which are typically up to five times the size of an average UK wedding. 
In the last four months Raj has organised receptions at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, Cliveden in Berkshire, Harewood House in Yorkshire and Knowsley Hall on Merseyside.

Holly creates Jamelia's dream day
JAMELIA and footballer Darren Byfield held their wedding at Eastlands Estate in West Sussex, where in-house planner Holly Offord helped create the couple's dream day. 
Holly said: 'The couple approached me seven weeks before the wedding, which is quite a short lead time considering we normally have about nine months. 
'However because we have such a good relationship with our suppliers, they were all happy to step in at short notice and it didn't cause any problems."
