Back in the villages of yesteryear, couples would visit their local church then proceed to the village hall. A wedding was an event for the community to come together and celebrate. Okay, excuse the flowery language. In fact, plenty of couples still do this. It is a much cheaper option than booking a hotel function suite and, moreover, is infinitely personalisable. Despite the connotations of village halls simply being a budget venue, you can certainly still make them romantic and special. Plus it is the perfect way to save money on your wedding day!
In this day and age, it’s critical we start taking actions to curb our impact on the planet’s climate. Weddings are large and expensive events, and in many cases a preparation for a future generation – but what kind of future will there be for our children?
Most couples don’t think twice about finding a local wedding venue, inviting all their nearest and dearest, and then jetting off to a sunny honeymoon. However, an increasing number of couples are now choosing to tie the knot outside of the UK.
A barn wedding is a popular choice and for good reason. Think vaulted ceilings, beautiful exposed beams, rustic brickwork and rolling countryside views; it’s a fantastic setting for a magical wedding. You’ll be happy to know it’s also an excellent budget option, perfect for DIY couples.
Glastonbury, known as a major pilgrimage site for neo-pagans, King Arthur, the Tor and of course, Pilton’s world-renowned Glastonbury Festival, is an ideal setting for a rural countryside wedding.
