Worcester Guildhall woos couples at Wedding Fayre
What better place to tie the knot than Worcester’s historic Guildhall?
The Guildhall (High Street Worcester, WR1 2EY) is hosting its first ever Wedding Fayre on Sunday 7 October from 10.00am to 3.30pm.
One of the focal points for the event will be a Catwalk Show at midday, where local volunteers will model a range of bridal wear and suits for grooms.
“This won’t be your typical designer catwalk show; we deliberately wanted to see brides and grooms of all ages and sizes having fun and showing off some fabulous clothes,” says Guildhall event organiser Aimee Allen.
Over 30 local firms will be showcased at the event, including Perfections Bridal Studio, The Bridal Boutique of Worcester, Armstrongs tailors and suit hire, Gatehouse Brides and LaceWings Bridal Boutique.
As an additional incentive, interested parties attending the event will be entered in to a draw to win the free hire of Guildhall rooms for their wedding ceremony.
250 free goodie bags will also be given away on a first come, first served basis, including a number of wedding-related freebies and vouchers.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to view all the rooms and facilities at the Guildhall and have questions answered by friendly and experienced staff.
The City Council has a licence to conduct wedding ceremonies, civil partnership ceremonies and naming ceremonies at the Guildhall.
With its impressive décor dating back to 1721, it is a perfect venue for both wedding ceremonies and receptions. There are six rooms available for hire – including the opulent Assembly Room, Court Room and Council Chamber.
The Guildhall can cater for small, intimate weddings through to functions for up to 200 guests.
“As many couples who have already tied the knot there will testify, the Guildhall looks fabulous and contains some of the most beautiful rooms in the city,” says Cllr Pat Agar, Chair of the Income Generation Sub Committee at Worcester City Council.
“It is an ideal venue for all manner of celebrations, and has already hosted two functions in the 21st Century for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”
