PARTY & COUNTRY HOUSE WEDDING STYLING

The Little Touches

There are lots of little touches that you can do to make your country house wedding venue or exclusive use country house party that are quick and easy which can make the house feel more like you and your home. Such as bringing picture frames with pictures of yourself or family in and putting them around the reception rooms; or writing a welcome note to leave in the guest bedrooms outlining what’s planned for your stay. Your event planner may have lots of ideas but also check out our image boards on Pinterest (which we regularly update) where we post cute ideas and things that people have done at Huntsham Court. http://pinterest.com/huntshamcourt/

The Big Touches

Huntsham Court is a wonderful example of Victorian style and architecture – but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make it your own for your event. Below is a list of suppliers that may be of use to make it ‘more you’ from table arrangements and florists to bringing specialist drapery or lighting in.
