For some couples, an intimate wedding has always been the dream. Nothing big, lavish or elaborate -- just a small, stunning day. For others, however, the pandemic has forced their diamond-bejewelled hand because, well, small weddings have become the only weddings, for the moment at least.
Thankfully, we've been doing this long enough to know there is so much to love about small, intimate weddings. They way they feel so personal and so full of love. The way every wall, corner and rafter of your venue is able to be decorated with heart, detail and rustic wow. The way the dance floor is always full of laughing guests that have known one another forever, even if just feels that way. That’s what we love so much about our Old Farm Barn -- and it's why we have created an intimate wedding package tailored to small weddings of up to 30 guests.
We wish we had a crystal ball so that we could tell you when the world we be back to normal, weddings can be limitless celebrations, and couples can celebrate having a guests list with hundreds of names on it. But for now, here is everything you need to know about the Thursford Garden Pavilion's all-new 2021 Intimate Wedding Venue Hire Package.
Whether you're looking to tie the knot early next year, beneath the summer sun or just as the leaves are turning red, orange and gold, we've make our intimate wedding prices as friendly as possible so that your budget can be stretched as far as your dreams, allowing you to create the most beautiful small wedding ever.
