This June on a perfect summers day we welcomed all to our Open Evening, this was a great chance to see the space set up and also celebrate H-Coo Events 4th Birthday. The Evening included a spectacular festival style set up including Stretch Tent Marquee, Body Art & Fire Performance, Glamping Bell Tents, Wonderful Flowers Props & Venue Styling & Open Bar raising money with generous donations for Cancer Research Uk .
Working with talented like minded local suppliers is the one of the best things; we were very lucky to work with an amazing selected bunch of talent offering services that compliment what we do at our venue The Cider Orchard, at The Grange, along with our planning and styling services. As an Outdoor wedding venue the space really comes alive with an event here, so it’s the perfect time to visit with a marquee up.
Our Bell Tents…
Perfect for Glamping accommodation, chill out or Kiddie area. Bell Tent Villages are a great way to put up a number of guests for a festival wedding.
Although we don’t have a license for getting married at The Grange you are welcome to have an outdoor blessing between two old apple trees (This does mean doing the legal bit before or after your wedding). Anyone can perform your ceremony, however we do know of some excellent Celebrants that can help and support you and perform your ceremony. The bonus is the freedom allows you to have a ceremony that reflects your personalities, celebrating you as a couple in your own chosen way.
Talented Body Artist Amanda Cooper from The Painted Peach added an extra special element with Body Art & Fire Performance. It was also great to see the showcase of Bridal Painting & Bride Model which is something that I think we will come to see more and more of for festival weddings. See it here first with Painted Peach. Models can be painted for any purpose imaginable how about a Stag Waiter serving drinks on your day? Face painting is also offered as a way to give your event and guests extra sparkle.
Bouquet & Top Table Arrangement from Bristol based Belle De Jour was just perfect and complimented our nature unique approach to the event styling.
I can’t recommend the Stretch Tent enough as one of our Marquee options it really was beautiful inside and perfect for a festival style wedding or if you fancy something a bit different. The comments it got were all very positive.
A glass of Thatcher’s Family Reserve was the cherry on Top of the evening, or if you’re more of a beer drinker then Twisted Oak Beer would have up your street! For the soft drinks Bradley’s Juice which is made just down the road offer a range of delicious Juices. Nibbles; Olives, Beetroot Humous & Cheese Cake were on offer for the peckish.
All in all it really was a fantastic evening, it was a buzzy blur with couples and families enjoying the evening toped off with a fire pit to end the night.
