A couple of weeks ago I received an invitation to attend the showcase of a new wedding venue in South Oxfordshire. I’m always interested to hear about new suppliers and products within the local wedding industry and the prospect of a new venue is very exciting.
I visited the showcase on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. The wow factor of Adwell House and it’s surrounding Estate hit me as soon as I reached the driveway. An expanse of grassy land adorned with pretty Spring daffodils and crocuses caught my eye, closely followed by the surrounding lakes and simply breathtaking Adwell Church, which lies on the grounds of the Estate adjacent to the main House.
Joseph Benjamin Marquees have been appointed to provide the structures, equipment and furniture for weddings booked at the venue, and the showcase included one of their marquees set up and decorated in a variety of styles to really highlight what can be achieved.
Hibiscus Catering have been appointed to provide catering services for weddings at the venue. I was kindly toured around by Jo who gave me an insight into what else the grounds had to offer, including a gorgeous walled garden (perfect for an after-ceremony drinks reception) and a very sweet white bridge crossing a stream and a garden swing; both picture-perfect opportunities for the all important wedding album. I also had an opportunity to take a look inside the beautiful church, which was filled with the scent of fresh flowers put together by the Church’s own florist.
Back inside the marquee it was great to see the range of options available for the structure, including clear sides so that guests can continue to enjoy the landscape whilst inside.
I was pleased to meet Will Warr who showed me a few samples of his gorgeous wedding videos. Our in depth discussion about the importance of wedding videography is discussed on our wedding planning site here, but for now, do take a look at Will’s fabulous work here.
Overall, I was really impressed with Adwell Estate; the grounds are truly beautiful and the options are endless for marquee structures and catering possibilities.
If you are on the hunt for a venue that provides a large amount of outdoor space with plenty of stunning backdrops for beautiful wedding photographs, as well as the option of creating an indoor space to your own requirements, this could well be the venue for you.
