Your West Midlands Wedding - June/July (Issue 80)

BILSTON BROOK WEDDING BARN LTD, WS13 8HY 07597 377 452 | Bilston Brook Wedding Barn Ltd is located one mile from the stunning cathedral city of Lichfield and near the area of countryside known as Cannock Chase. The property has been a working farm for more than 100 years and has the Bilston Brook river running nearby. There is a large seating area with benches looking onto views of open fields, perfect for garden games or a barbecue. The barn offers a bespoke wedding experience, with a newly-furnished interior, hand-fired panelled walls with a bar, festoon lighting, a separate ceremony barn, new toilets, and a bridal room. The venue has lots of charm and requires very little decoration, however, couples can let their imaginations run wild and embellish the barn to suit their tastes. CELEBRATE IN STYLE The Main Barn is 90ft by 45ft and can easily hold up to 120 seated guests during the day and 150 in the evening. The space also lends itself to more intimate weddings. Post-vows, the adjoining Ceremony Barn can be hired in addition to the Main Barn which seats 100 friends and family and matches the rustic décor with festoon lighting. WE LOVE... Couples will love the converted barn used as accommodation, three-day hire and the friendly and welcoming wedding team. SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS, B46 2BL 01675 620 620 | Situated just outside Coleshill, Shustoke Barn is an 18th-century red brick barn set around a private courtyard. CELEBRATE IN STYLE The ceremony and wedding breakfast all take place in the main barn throughout the day which is then transformed for the evening reception. Boasting a timber ceiling, flagstone floors, oak beams and floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light. The colour-changing LED lights and rustic iron candle chandeliers are available to help incorporate a particular colour scheme or set the mood for dancing. The space can accommodate 140 guests for the service and 200 for the evening celebration. The courtyard has three beautiful olive trees, all boarded with benches for seating. Spotlights on each tree and the three rustic firepits provide light and warmth for evening activities. The barbecue is placed within the courtyard; whilst the reception takes place, guests can see all the flames and meat being cooked, creating the most amazing smells. WE LOVE... The venue’s secluded grounds and the courtyard provides a perfect space for taking photographs. 14
