We did it… we married on Friday 15th October 2010 and had an absolutely glorious day. Read more
This is the venue for our wedding. It’s not grand or plush or overly pretty from the outside, but it is functional and perfect for what we wanted.
It has plenty of parking space and outdoor areas where, at the beginning of Autumn, the trees should be turning a beautiful golden colour for the photos.
There is a play park where, weather permitting, the children can play before dinner whilst their parents mingle with other guests.
There is an entrance hall which we can use to offer a warm welcome to the guests as they arrive (well, not us personally as we will be elsewhere as the afternoon guests arrive, but our decorations can offer a warm welcome at this point).
There is a spacious hall, large enough to set the tables around the outside during the blessing ceremony, and put them into place ready for the meal…
With rafters to hang bunting and balloons from…
and room for a disco as the evening progresses.
There’s even a room for relaxing and chilling…
which is situated right next to the bar (just behind those folding doors!)
There’s even a cloakroom and a serving hatch straight from the kitchen, but I never thought to take photos of those!
I have so many plans for this place, so many ideas I can’t wait to put into action, so many thrifty finds I can’t wait to use. October is coming closer each day and I need to get going on making the decorations and putting the final bits and pieces together. Stay tuned, dear readers, this blog will soon be filled with all manner of wedding-goodness…
I thought it was high time we had another “wedding update” and what better thing to update you on than the ceremony itself? Read more
