Spring weddings at Tower Hill Barns are something you need to experience for yourself. Our grounds are beginning to come into their own, and the outdoor team are on the case. They’re busy planting, pruning and preparing for the spring/summer wedding season, enhancing all those stunning outside photo opportunities that our guests are so looking forward to.
We always say that each of the seasons brings with it a different atmosphere here, and Spring is one of our favourites. With the clocks going forward and the longer days unfolding, you can just feel spring is in the air.
Let’s face it, there’s nothing like a spring wedding. Fresh beginnings, friends together, love, hope, and the sparkle of sunshine. Yes, of course there can be the occasional spring shower too, but that’s all part of what creates the natural beauty of Wales; the luscious, green and rolling hills, the fresh air and open skies – it’s all perfect ingredients for a spring event. If that’s what you’re looking for, we can turn the thought into a reality and help you make this place your own for your wedding day.
We offer a choice of locations, depending on your preference. Many happy couples have tied the knot in our old barn, but for those looking for the wow factor, we have something truly unique to offer. As a truly romantic backdrop for your wedding album, what could be more picturesque than making your vows in the evocative setting of our own historic sandstone railway bridge. Dating back to the 19th century, and marking the crossing to the Ruabon to Barmouth line, this is a very special place. Really memorable.
The backdrop to the bridge is expansive views across the Dee Valley, framed by the organic beauty of the surrounding farmland. All in all, it’s a stunning wedding location as long as the spring showers hold off. The bridge has been newly replanted, with lavender, cosmos and spring daisies, and this year sees our perennial wildflower meadow come to life for the first time. While you’re in the meadow, you’ll see the new path we’ve created. We’re quite proud of this feature. It allows couples and their guests to enjoy the wildness of the natural environment, and to capture photographs in the spacious, airy setting.
We can’t wait to experience the array of colours, textures and springtime scents all this planting will produce in the coming months. The first purples and yellows are just peeking through. Already, we can see the trees just starting to come back to life – gorgeous blossom emerging, wild grasses sprouting, and the hedgerows teaming with pretty Spring blooms. Now picture all that with a champagne glass in your hand, and a sparkling ring on your finger, or on the hand of the one you love.
When you’re styling your own Spring wedding theme, there are plenty of colours to work with. Think of fresh white blossom, bright, sunny daffodils, the rainbow shades of tulips, deeper tones of crocuses in blues and violets, or for the free-spirited, a fresh bohemian scattering of poppies and wild daisies in lush meadow grass. Springtime here in the Welsh hills is truly captivating, and our setting has a particular Celtic ambience for weddings taking place here during the spring months.
Food wise, we have some great suggestions for fabulous spring menus, with plenty of delicious seasonal produce available to choose from. How about asparagus as a light starter. Perhaps a serving of lamb (sourced locally) as a main course. Then freshly grown rhubarb for dessert. And all that followed by cocktails…
…talking of which, as your special day draws in and the cooler evening air takes over, your guests can continue to enjoy the outdoors for a few hours still. We have covered seating, stylish festoon lighting, and a warming fire pit, where you can toast marshmallows and light a few sparklers as you share drinks, laughter and great conversation.
