After a £5 million facelift, Old Down Country Park is ready to reopen its doors as a licensed venue.
The park will now be able to play host to civil ceremonies and receptions and in keeping with its beautiful Victorian house, will be celebrating with a vintage wedding fayre, hosted by Liz Gayther of Lizzy May Photography.
Liz says: “The idea comes from a new movement in the weddings market – ‘vintage’. The idea is to celebrate all things timeless, individual and quality. To me, this seemed to be in keeping with the Victorian elegance of the house, as well as the nature of Old Down itself – being a little quirky! Choosing the brightest and most creative exhibitors should make the event a little ‘edgier’ than the norm for a wedding fayre. This will hopefully taking advantage of an increasing market of couples looking for something unique with an individual service. I see this as a great opportunity to promote the new venue, as well as give local suppliers in the Bristol area a chance to display their work.”
Entry to the event is free but visitors are encouraged to enter the prize draw, the proceeds of which will go to ‘Cots for Tots’. Entry to look around the park will also be free.
