West Country Wedding Venues – Somerset

Time for the second part of our four part special that focuses on a small collection of Wedding Venues across the Black Country, and next on our list is Somerset.  We have included links to all the wedding venues featured and would recommend you do check out their website to see what each individual wedding venue has to offer.

Almonry Barn

For couples who want to add an extra touch of history to their big day, The Almonry Barn has 800 years’ worth and could definitely be classed as a ‘one of a kind’ wedding venue.  The barn, once part of a beautiful abbey, can be found in the medieval village of Muchelney and is believed to be the oldest wedding barn in England.  Considered a relatively new wedding venue in the heart of Somerset, The Almonry Barn is a combination of stylish and rustic elegance and full of quirky and interesting touches that will make any wedding day extra special.

More details about Almonry Barn and how to book your wedding can be found on their website.  You will also find lots more breath-taking images of how your wedding might look if you decide Almonry Barn is where you want to get married.

Kilver Court

Hidden away in the English countryside, Kilver Court, is the only place to exchange wedding vows if you are thinking of having an ‘al fresco’ wedding.  This unique wedding venue, with its combination of elegant rooms and romantic gardens, will not disappoint.

Known as The Secret Gardens of Somerset, the romantic gardens at Kilver Court, with their formal parterre, carefully tended rockeries, mellow mill pond and breath-taking viaduct, would allow for some beautiful memories to be captured on camera.  If you decide to continue celebrating […]

We all love a wood fired pizza!

There was a time when every party, special occasion or wedding you went to had all the same meals on the menu and finger foods on the buffet table. That was the ‘norm’ back then. Nowadays anything goes and that includes what type of food you and your guests should get to eat on your Special Day.  Newly engaged couples are thinking outside the box and going for a menu that is a little different and one that compliments their day rather than stands out for all the wrong reasons.

A popular choice, and definitely one to add to your list if you’re planning on going al fresco is a Wood Fired Pizza and an option Lyme Bay Field Kitchen has included on their Wedding Menu for 2014.  Imagine sipping a cool glass of something delicious with the tantalising aromas of freshly cooked wood fired pizza floating all around you.  Doesn’t it make your mouth water just thinking about it? They will also be very different from the pizzas you’ve previously tasted, unless you’re already a lover of pizzas cooked in the traditional way. A pizza worth serving to your guests should be a pizza cooked in no other way but in a wood fired oven. It will also make for a great topic of conversation and you will see plenty of eyes, young and old, watching the chefs preparing the pizzas before expertly popping them into the wood fired ovens. You can bet guests won’t take their eyes off those ovens until it is time to take the pizza back out again. Can you hear the stampede rushing towards the smoky aromas? Your guests will be coming back for more, and more. It’s a good job […]
