You can’t always rely on the great British weather… but one thing is true. If you are thinking of an outdoor wedding, this place could be perfect for you.
I absolutely love a Tipi wedding – snug yet spacious, cosy yet cool, and big, brave and beautiful! So when I saw a new venue was opening not too far from home, I had to find out more. The Orchard at Munsley promises to be a dreamy wedding venue with a lot of charm and a lot of heart.
Ian is from the Black Country – just like me – but his wife hails from the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, where she grew up on the family farm. They decided when they wed that they would host their big day on this beautiful land, and, having now moved there permanently, are giving other couples the chance to do the same.
The Orchard (yes, I know, it already sounds idyllic!) is run by this husband and wife duo and it is a real family effort. From Jayne’s event management skills to Ian’s manual graft, they deliver an exceptional event from start to finish. They move the hay bales, they mow the grass, they direct the traffic onto site! And they are on hand throughout each event from beginning to end to ensure everything is perfect.
The key is that this is a real labour of love – the family have grown up here and held special occasions of their own on this very land, so they have a real emotional connection to every event that they hold. And they really understand just how precious your day is. They can help you to create a fun, unique and very personal event, with rustic charm and a relaxed atmosphere that would put even the biggest bridezilla at ease!
Their picturesque estate includes the namesake apple orchard, a duck pond, and a beautiful local village church for those wanting a more traditional ceremony. When it comes to the tipis, the options are varied, so they can cater for parties of all sizes – everyone is invited, and that even includes the dog!
You may have seen us mention these guys on our ‘Ones to Watch’ last summer, and we can’t wait to share more with you as they continue to grow. They’ll soon be hosting more open days and showcases, so look out for more pics coming soon. Or, why not pay a visit yourself?!
Located around 20 minutes from the gorgeous Malvern hills, and only an hour from Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff, they’re ideally located between the bustle in a serene countryside setting.
