New old lo­ca­tions to say ‘I do’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

LOVE­STRUCK cou­ples can get mar­ried in plenty of places steeped in his­tory in Bucks.

But a new venue has be­come avail­able for those who truly want to turn back the clock to the ro­man­tic ‘good old days’.

Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum has just added wed­dings to its list of of­fer­ings after re­ceiv­ing a grant to help of­fer some of its beau­ti­ful his­tor­i­cal build­ings as the per­fect place to get hitched.

The mu­seum is no stranger to wed­dings, hav­ing held re­cep­tions and bless­ings in the past, but the new grant will en­able wed­dings to be held on a wider scale.

It held a wed­ding open morn­ing on Satur­day, Novem­ber 22, for cou­ples to see what it has to of­fer.

Mu­seum mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer He­len Light, an ex­pe­ri­enced wed­ding pho­tog­ra­pher, said: “When I visit a wed­ding venue with clients, I’m al­ways look­ing out for great pho­tog­ra­phy spots and the mu­seum has them by the bucket load.

“There are so many bril­liant op­por­tu­ni­ties for cre­ative brides to re­ally per­son­alise their wed­ding re­cep­tion and host a wed­ding event that’s re­ally unique and spe­cial.

“After all, there aren’t many venues where you can have wed­ding photographs taken in a me­dieval barn, an 1880s chapel, an Iron Age round­house, thatched 18th-cen­tury cot­tage, hid­den meadow and an un­spoilt wood­land.”

The mu­seum is avail­able for wed­ding re­cep­tion hire from April to Septem­ber.
