A few weeks ago I exhibited at a cute and quirky woodland venue: Upthorpe Wood. I have exhibited at so many shows – both local and national, but the colour, vibrancy and warmth that radiated from this venue and it’s fabulous family of suppliers, will stay with me. Not only did I get to exhibit my tiaras, vines and halos in the trees, I discovered something pretty special: a little hidden gem – one that I just had to share.
Set in a private wood with winding walks, honey suckle tunnels, and secret hideaways, Upthorpe wood offers a pretty, and magical venue where pathways of colourful and twinkling lanterns and lights promise partying into the night: perfect for couples seeking a unique, relaxed blessing as well as an intimate and special day that won’t break the bank.
Price wise, this venue makes sense: full weekend hire giving wedding parties exclusive use of venue is offered at incredibly reasonable prices. Simple, fun and informal catering packages are also available. The owners are super relaxed and friendly, but professional – and their philosophy to offer couples a beautiful, unpretenscious, price effective wedding is reflected in their pricing .The best bit? No corkage is charged!
Need help with planning? – take a look at the supplier list – it’s small, but perfect – trust me, I met the super talented, friendly team – they know the venue, work closely with the owners and bring the woods to life with their imaginative creations, quirky touches and enthusiasm.
