We attend a wide variety of wedding venues with our mobile crêperie and no two venues (or weddings) are the same. They all have unique touches, whether they be water features, the gardens or the buildings themselves. At a recent wedding we attended at Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire, there was an interesting feature we hadn’t seen before which we quite liked.
The name of the venue had been “carved” into a mature hedgerow in letters about a metre high and about 15 metres in length. If you’d prefer a more accurate description, the hedge had been trimmed to leave the name of the venue spelled out (in relief), in a san serif capital style (we are into art, so we know about these things!)
There was a large lawn area in front of the hedge so presumably it was utilised for photo opportunities, and I imagine it was probably long enough for all the guests at an average wedding to assemble in front of it for a group photo.
Touches like this at a venue don’t amount to much individually, but when considered along with all the other unique aspects of the day (such as crepes being served in the evening!) they all go together to make the wedding day what it is.
Unfortunately it was raining when we arrived and the area was being used for bands loading equipment from their vans and into the marquee area, so we couldn’t take a decent photograph. But all being well, we will be back at the venue in the future so will be sure to grab a photograph then.
It’s worth keeping an eye out for nice little touches like this when considering which venue to choose. Thinking of a way to incorporate them into your plan for the big day is all part of the fun.
