Melissa and James wanted a venue for both the ceremony and the reception. Wed looked at a few hotels before we came across the Curradine Barns in Worcester, says Melissa.
We knew straight away that it was the place for us and we couldnt wipe the smiles off our faces. The two barns had real character, but there was plenty of space to add our own touches. It was so different from the tired hotels we had seen before, and although it was big enough to hold our 100 guests, it didnt lack intimacy.
To make a feature of the decorative brickwork, the couple hired two dramatic red up-lighters and greenery was wound around the ironwork running across the width of the room.
The barn has a fantastic minstrels gallery overlooking the room which was strewn with pretty willow intertwined with fairy lights, says Melissa. The venue was also decorated with two pedestals full of flowers, a floral piece for the registrars table, and a large arrangement attached to the gallery.
