Matt Rawlingson Plant

The Longhouse is a family run venue and was built in 2004 next to Trendle Farm, where Matt has lived since his parents bought it in 1984.
Matt returned to the family business after serving as a captain in the Royal Tank Regiment and in industry. His first major project was to manage the build of the Longhouse which he was determined to make it as environmentally friendly and sustainably as possible; this has enabled us to have a fantastic venue for really green weddings.
Matt married his wife Flora in 2005 and it was always their plan to have the wedding reception at the Longhouse.

Danica has been the Wedding & Events Coordinator at the Longhouse since February 2017 and can’t imagine working anywhere else!
She takes real joy in working in such a beautiful location and is really proud of the Longhouse’s environmentally friendly credentials.
Danica feels that being part of a couple’s wedding day is a tremendous privilege and ensuring that they are able to really enjoy such a momentous occasion is hugely gratifying. She loves supporting each couple through their planning process and seeing all their ideas come to fruition on the day really is the cherry on the cake.
