The new 2017 summer wedding season is nearly upon us…

The new 2017 summer wedding season is nearly here!   How did that happen..?!  It seems like just the other week we had our last summer wedding of 2016 and were closing down for the winter.   And we’re about to start all over again!

The marquee goes up tomorrow, the carpet fitters are coming on Tuesday to fit the brand new marquee carpet, the lighting people are coming on Tuesday to instal the fairy light canopy and we’ve got a host of new offerings here at the venue for our 2017 couples.

We’ve got the new ice cream trike…garden-white-ice-cream-trike-parasol-2017-wedding-season

complete with our own livery which is available to hire for your guests.   Being a trike we can easily wheel it inside if the weather turns wet.

We also have our new sweet trolley which the lovely S has spent hours renovating and transforming:

The garden has also seen some changes.  The new glade walk has been finished and a new orchard fence has gone up this month.   Yesterday Ollie the gardener planted a new rose hedge of 50 white roses which will be seen from the orchard – it’s going to look gorgeous!

That’s not to mention a couple of pop up lounges we’ve got coming up but you’ll have to come back to see more details about those…

All the info from couples about their final design details are coming in – 2017 is going to be a fabulous season!   I’m meeting with new photographers to show them round the venue ahead of the weddings they’re shooting here.  We’re also looking forward to welcoming back to the venue some of our favourite photographers who have been here before.   I’ve had meetings with florists to talk over the plans for what they’re doing here over the coming months.   It’s all happening!  We’re going to have so many amazing celebrations this year in this new 2017 summer wedding season, I really can’t wait.
