Rebecca & Neil are actually from a town in Leicestershire just down the road from me, but were married at Worcestershire wedding venue Birtsmorton Court.
Birtsmorton is a beautiful building surrounded by a moat and much of which was built in the 15th Century, although some of the original foundations laid in 1241 forms part of the Court today.
I have to say that Rebecca & Neil made a great choice as the venue is stunning, in particular The Court which consists of an Elizabethan Banqueting Hall, a Medieval Great Hall, Council Chamber and a 17th-century dining room along with a sympathetic extension, which was built in the early part of the 20th century. The oldest structure is the main gate which dates back to the 13th century.
The venue also has a ‘secret’ white garden and this is where the marriage ceremony was held. The garden has been designed to be in flower from late May through to late October and was in spectacular bloom providing a great backdrop to the day’s celebrations.
Warwickshire based vintage crockery hire company “My Vintage Party” provided an amazing array of vintage crockery for the afternoon tea reception which was held in a marquee at the venue. Leicestershire based Swing Vocalist Craig Radford crooned his way through a fantastic set of swing songs during the tea and also provided the first hour’s worth of music for the first dance and evening party. Welsh ceilidh band “The Cats Claw Band” then took over and got everyone up and enjoying themselves with traditional ceilidh music & dancing.
