There’s no getting away from it – weddings are expensive, and when you have a strict budget, options can sometimes appear limited. However, with imagination and a great vision, you can create the wow factor in any venue.
This was the case for Natalie and James, who wanted a local laid-back wedding to suit their budget, but still for it to feel really special as a wedding day should.
They chose to hold their ceremony at the registry office at County Hall, Hertfordshire.
County Hall is a grade 2 listed building located in Hertford. It is the working office of Hertfordshire County Council and adjoins Hertford registry office.
County Hall has a small garden area for post ceremony photos but knowing we would have some greenery when we moved to the wedding reception we took advantage of the distinctive arches the building has for some photos.
Their wedding reception was held at the local memorial hall within the quaint, sought after village of Tewin.
Tewin village is located between the towns of Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage in Hertfordshire. It dates back to the Saxon times, but now is very much a popular village with commuters, given its strong community feel and easy links into London.
Tewin Village Memorial Hall was completely transformed for Natalie and James wedding reception, with the clever use of lighting and decoration.
Natalie had spent a lot of effort and research to get the venue just right and her Bridesmaids did a fantastic job laying out the afternoon tea ready for the guest’s arrival. Guests enjoyed a celebratory drink at the village pub The Rose & Crown, before making their way to the village hall to sit down to their afternoon tea themed reception.
