TASSY & CHIRS

HOW DID YOU FALL IN LOVE?

Chris and I met thanks to Oldwalls. I’m very lucky to say Oldwalls isn’t just my wedding venue but also my family home and it’s where I grew up. I met my now husband when Oldwalls, as people know and love it today, was being built in 2008, as ironically my husband was the man who built the place! Chris is the director of a local building firm that took on the project and we both met on site. Already considered a friend of my dad’s we connected straight away and started dating, the love quickly blossomed from there.

TASSY'S TOP TIPS

  1. Don’t be afraid to ask for anything at Oldwalls. We lowered the ceilings by placing circular wreaths filled with flowers on the light fittings, we also had flowers above the top table balanced on a specially created shelf. Oldwalls allowed us to have our dream day, they’re so flexible when it comes to decorating the venue, it was exactly how I’d imagined it and so much more.
  2. Be unique, don’t be afraid to ask for what you want, I arrived by helicopter and had a cocktail bar delivered made entirely of ice.
  3. Always find out the full services that Oldwalls offers, I was able to source so many of my suppliers by using Oldwalls handy Little White Book, it had everything in that I needed to plan my perfect day.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE OLDWALLS GOWER?

Oldwalls holds a special place in my heart as it is where I grew up, my family home. Before Oldwalls was created I pictured the venue that every girl dreams of. Key factors being, exclusivity, privacy, beautiful surroundings, magical atmosphere, rural. For me, that is Oldwalls and no other place I know.
