From fabulous photographers to stunning flowers, a selection of wedding providers will be showcasing their services at the historic The Old Shire Hall in the heart of Warwick on Sunday 4th March.
No matter what stage you are at with your wedding planning, the free event will give brides and grooms-to-be the perfect opportunity to take a look at the unique venue dressed for a wedding.
Discuss your ideas with the experts in the grand surroundings of the Great Hall and Judges House, whilst sipping fizz and trying tasty canapes from in house caterers Wild View Events. The team will be available throughout the day to answer any questions.
The Old Shire Hall, built in 1750, is a Grade I listed building on Northgate Street in Warwick, owned by Warwickshire County Council, who are working in partnership with Wild View Events to host the wedding fair.
Housing an impressive art collection, it is a venue that symbolises quality and elegance, making it an exceptional location for weddings.
On Sunday 4th March, couples will have the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the striking Great Hall, with its stone columns, ornate ceiling and period chandeliers, ideal for weddings of up to 280 guests.
For smaller weddings, there is the magnificent Grecian style of the Judges’ Dining and Drawing Rooms and High Sheriff’s Room, all of which are available for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and drinks receptions.
And for something completely different, the elaborate Court Rooms can also be used for ceremonies and receptions of up to 60 people, while the atmospheric 17th century dungeon and original prisoner holding cells provide unique photo opportunities!
Kushal Birla, Head of Customer Service at Warwickshire County Council, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming couples to this wonderful event and showcasing our building and its beautiful rooms as part of the wedding fair.
“We will have a number of fantastic exhibitors from the local area that will be showcasing their products and services on the day. The Old Shire Hall is a very special venue. Our wedding fair is a must do visit for all newly engaged couples.”
