Real Marquee Wedding, Walton Castle, Clevedon
By Sweet & Pretty Weddings, Sep 6 2017 06:36PM
In August 2015, I started working with Deb's and Jamie to fully plan their marquee wedding at Walton Castle in Clevedon.
Walton castle is a beautiful venue, tucked away on a hill overlooking Clevedon. You get to hire the entire castle for the weekend and stay with your friends in the main castle and turrets built into the walls.
However it has some challenges as there's no music allowed outside and the turrets you can use to get married and host a band or DJ for the evening are reasonably small. Having already planned a fabulous festival style wedding here, I knew how to maximise the venue by placing a dining marquee inside the castle walls and allowing guests to easily access the bar and party turrets.
It was a beautiful wedding with a wonderful Church ceremony and beautiful Marquee by Mudway Workman, stunning chandeliers by Knight Lights, pretty linen by Table to Dine For and gorgeous florals by Stephanie Saunders. Groom Jamie said after the wedding,
"Steph was very impressive from the first moment we met when we were shortlisting potential planners. Steph demonstrated the passion and professionalism to ensure our special day went not just to plan but was willing to ensure it went better than we could have imagined. Knowledge of the venue and a range of local suppliers were also key. Outstanding value for the service provided in communicating with us and the suppliers -particularly important to us as we werent local to the venue. She spent many hours at the venue welcoming guests and directing suppliers prior to the wedding and on the day everything ran to the plan that we had agreed.
Beautifully summed up by a wedding guests who said the entire day ran impeccably without ever seeing who is in charge. Would unreservedly recommend Steph!"
