Set in the North West of England lies the leafy county of Cheshire. Best known for its affluent towns and resident footballers, it is also blessed with a thriving wedding industry and many beautiful venues. A perfect wedding is made up of all the right ingredients and should of course be unique to you. But with so much on offer, how do you possibly know where to start? Here are seven of the most exciting businesses in the region who can all help you turn your special day into no ordinary wedding.
Luxury Cheshire venue.
Nestled in the idyllic Cheshire countryside is the lovingly converted barn at Stock Farm. A handsome willow tree bows a welcome to you as you draw past the original stables and the adjacent barley field is a photographer’s dream. The magnificent barn doors make a show-stopping welcome and perfectly frame the grand entrance. Vows can be exchanged in the barn or within its private garden and the whole venue is exclusively yours. The farmhouse and neighbouring properties provide luxury accommodation for over 40 guests.
A custom-built bar hugs the corner of the barn and is shrouded in garland lights. Guests can relax on rustic hay-bale sofas in the Swallow Barn or play games on the lawn. From the romantic log-fires of winter to the carnival spirit of summer, this is a beautiful blank canvas to create your wedding, your way. This exceptional luxury venue provides the perfect setting to celebrate spending the rest of your lives together.
The Flaming Gourmand
No ordinary barbecue
Here at the Flaming Gourmand we use a unique Churrasco-style of cooking which is very theatrical and totally unique. Inspired by flavours from around the world, we use the very best ingredients cooked over wood and coals to create a gourmet feast that will make mouths water and tummies rumble.
Menus are totally bespoke, so you can tailor the food to be exactly as you want it. Vegetarian and vegan guests will be equally thrilled with the gourmet choices. We are passionate about food and believe that the catering at your wedding should be one of the highlights of the day. We don’t just provide food, we provide an experience. As the smoke gently drifts into the sky, the flavours will linger, leaving your guests with a gourmet experience to remember.
A quirky mobile Bar
Boho bar is a quirky bohemian mobile bar converted from an old rice horse box. This is no ordinary horse box bar though, it’s totally unique in style and design and sure to be a talking point at any event. Your guests will love sitting around the pull-out bar area while they sip Boho’s signature cocktail, the ‘Dreamcatcher’. Why not kick back with freshly pulled pint of Rothhammer, a chilean craft lager that always hits the spot. Gin lovers are also well looked after at this bar, serving a great selection of elite Gins to tickle everyone’s fancy. Fully stocked with Whiskeys, vodkas, ciders and more, your guests will be very happy with their menu. If space is tight, talk to them about their amazing pop up bar too. All perfectly put together by Gemma & Andy, who will cater for your every need.
SASSFLOWER create floral designs bursting with colour harmonies and decadent textures to couples who want something a little less ‘off the shelf’ for their wedding. Specialising in combining the perfect mix of contrasting yet complementary fresh flowers, foliage and even dried natural grasses for those loose boho styles; SASSFLOWER floral designs are completely bespoke to suit, no two bouquets are the same.
Owner and lead designer Sasha will work with you to dream up your floral vision using her experience and influences from previous work at florists over in Europe. Most recently featured in OK Magazine with a whimsical ceremony arch made up of luscious foliage, blush and porcelain blooms, ornate white aisle lining plinths and complete with floral candelabras.
