Blimey, we can hardly believe Autumn is upon us and Summer is fast becoming a distant memory (did we actually have a Summer….I can’t tell!) As we prepare for the oncoming Wedding Fayre season, it is lovely to look back over our busy summer and the wonderful weddings we have been honoured to be part of over the past few months.
One of the beautiful weddings Words To Glow were delighted to provide our LOVE marquee letters for was the wedding of Sami & Matt, our Facebook competition winners from a few months back. The venue? A beautiful barn conversion at The Chet Centre in Little Crosby, part of The Crosby Hall Educational Trust.
The Crosby Hall Educational Trust (CHET) was established as a charity in 1988 to run a residential educational centre via the adaptation of the beautiful stables and farm buildings at Crosby Hall. Opening in May 1991, CHET provides residential activity courses for children and young people, with diverse individual and group activities such as zip wire, archery, orienteering, raft building and a low ropes course aimed at building confidence and raising self-esteem in local young people.
Forming part of their fundraising income, The Great Barn at CHET is also exclusively hired out to a small number of brides and grooms each year for intimate and romantic wedding ceremonies and wedding breakfasts.
Restored to its former glory, the barn features beautiful red brick walls, a rustic feature staircase, fabulous festoon lighting and a raised stage area with fantastic grand piano, providing the perfect staging for an intimate wedding party.
Taking inspiration from the rustic feel of the barn, the reception was decorated on a vintage theme with oodles of burlap, jam jars, pretty wooden hearts and delicate gypsophila adorning the tables and lining the fabulous feature staircase.
Of course, taking centre stage next to the gorgeous grand piano and forming the perfect backdrop to the whole occasion were our sparkly large LOVE letters.
