The Courtyard Venue, Oswestry a stylish new wedding venue
Oh hello, stylish new Shropshire wedding venue – The Courtyard in Oswestry is a truly stunning place to get married. A wonderful Shropshire barn wedding venue and so much more …
I know, I know, we are all still dreaming of when weddings can return to normal, but I was recently invited to get together with some fantastic Shropshire wedding suppliers at this new venue to recreate the wedding of dreams.
The Courtyard in Oswestry comprises of two outstanding and unique spaces set within the Courtyard complex.
The aim of this stunning venue is to allow the bride and groom as much choice, flexibility and assistance as possible.
The magnificent barns have been beautifully restored and retain their period features and rustic charm with their oak beams, lime washed walls and the huge underground waterwheel.
The tithe barn will comfortably seat up to 100 and the ceremony room will also seat 100 and together with the bar area and terrace makes for a very elegant entertaining space. The Courtyard itself will seat in excess of 300 and there is extensive car parking available.
Trust me – it really is stunning!
I first met with Tammy Weaver from TMS Luxury Event Styling and Floral Design at the beginning of the year to plan a spring stylised photoshoot not long after the venue had had its launch in January.
Unfortunately, due to dreaded lockdown it was postponed, and we weren’t able to carry out the shoot until just recently.
Obviously, all of the photos you can view from the shoot were taken by me – Catherine Evans Photography. I am Shropshire based wedding photographer, also working across Wales and Cheshire.
To name but a few of the suppliers I was lucky enough to work alongside during the shoot, were Tammy, the fairy tale wedding dresses were provided by Claire Mischevani Couture.
Wedding hair styling was by Zori Jeffries and Miranda Etheridge MUA performed the make-up.
The stunning cake was created by Beth Bakes by Bethan Patrick and all the wedding stationary was produced by Rebecca Richards Designs. Table wear came from Tipples and our models for the day were Izzy Probert and Mai Armitage-Pryce.
Tammy said: “After visiting The Courtyard, Catherine and I discussed plans to work on styling and a colour pallet that would not only complement and enhance the natural beauty of the venue but work with the corporate colours.
“Hues of soft blue, powder pink and gold were used throughout the styling, to create a soft but elegant look. We used chiffon, linen and cheesecloth fabrics to create a layered fabric and to incorporate the colour tones within the florals.
“The wedding breakfast table was styled with using vintage rose bulb bowls posing in luxurious garden roses, as well as Bud vases and high impact taper candles from Ester and Erik.
“We used ornate urns with complimenting luxurious florals as room fillers. The ceremony room was dressed with a focal wooden arch, fresh florals and fresh trees gave a regal, grand but also intimate and high impact decor for the ceremony.
“We created two styles of bridal bouquets, one to complement the rose bowls and the opulent Claire Mischevni long sleeved gown, the other with a more Oriental look with modern grasses and dried content.”
