Whether one identifies as wedding crasher, wedding photographer, or a guest who only comes for the cake, wedding enthusiasts of all kinds will find interesting and exciting wedding rites taking place in England.
Eco-Friendly Rural Weddings
A new beginning often calls for a romp beyond the walls of modern urban life. Healey Barn in Northumberland is striving to provide a wedding venue that does just that.
Hosting over 100 weddings per year, Healey Barn has inspired the preservation of numerous historic rural structures and utilizes sustainable energy sources such as solar and biomass. The Country Land Association recognized these efforts at its Rural Business Awards.
Outdoor Weddings With Rustic Native American Flair
The Bridge House Barn has big plans for expanding its wedding and event venue near the Grand Union Canal. The venue is converting three existing offices into guest accommodations, and a nearby field will host a temporary structure resembling an Indian teepee. Due to its outdoor nature, the teepee venue will only be available between the months of May and September.
An Economic Boost
These unique venues benefit the local community by providing employment and cash flow. Not only do the wedding venues themselves provide job opportunities, but they draw additional customers for suppliers like wedding photographers in Leicestershire as the case with Lee Glasgow. As well as florists, salons, inns, and restaurants which can all be found by planning your wedding online before needing to investigate the venue itself.
An Unforgettable Wedding Story
In addition to its outstanding venues, the area is also home to unforgettable brides and grooms. Consider 25-year-old Ruth Sweet of Saltby. At first glance, her story may seem textbook: A young woman finally weds her high school sweetheart. Ruth’s story, however, is anything but ordinary.
Ruth’s parents divorced during her adolescence, and at age 14 she was diagnosed trichotillomania – an impulse control disorder in which a person pulls out her own hair in response to stress. Repeated plucking results in balding, and it was for this reason that Ruth initially turned down her boyfriend Josh’s marriage proposal.
Ruth, however, decided to take action. She would have the wedding of her dreams – and look great in her wedding album. Ruth sought out specialists who treated her condition with an intralace system, a special mesh that protects her scalp and allows her hair to regenerate. Thanks to this system, Ruth married Josh in Autumn 2016 with a full mane of flowing, curly blonde hair.
