At New Craven Hall we absolutely LOVE to show off our beautiful venue! On 25th February we held our second showcase day, following on from the success of our first back in May 2017. These days are a great chance for couples to see the venue set up and ready for a wedding, and also a way to get inspired and meet some amazing suppliers.

With a full guest list, we welcomed some familiar faces who have already chosen New Craven Hall for their big day, and some who are still on the hunt for their dream venue. On arrival, guests were greeted with a cocktail to enjoy as they browsed the layout of the room.

With the room divided by our grand curtain, we were able to create different scenes to really show the diversity of the venue. Using a mock ceremony setup, one side showed off our more classic style, while All Things Borrowed went for a more rustic ceremony look, including their own dramatic archway with plenty of candles and floral arrangements.

As couples explored this area, Victoria Baker was on hand, exhibiting her wedding photography. Victoria is a great friend of New Craven Hall and has done various shoots with us – she also captured these gorgeous shots from the day.

Meanwhile in the mock reception area, we again styled small scenes to inspire couples. We used our circular tables with lime wash chiavari chairs, a crisp look that really compliments the space. All Things borrowed showed off an amazing selection of rustic furniture, equally fitting with the style of New Craven hall.

Crate furniture at the back of the venue, covered with an abundance of cusions and throws, offered a great place for couples to sit, have a drink and take it all in.

Eat Me Drink Me offered some delicious nibbles to sample, and were also on hand to talk through what they can offer to couples who have not yet found their perfect caterer.

We hold our showcase days periodically throughout the year so keep your eyes peeled for our next date. We would like to thank All Thing Borrowed, Victoria Baker Photography and Eat Me Drink Me for making the day so special.
