Owl island is a magical far off location for a secret garden party wedding and is suited to a more informal tipi style event. This was exactly what Kirstie and Lee from Helpston were seeking. Three amazing tipis were erected on the lawn set in amongst the trees and shrubs. With their close family and friends the large dance floor complete with the requisite glitterball, long tables and bench seating were all decorated and laid out. Outside a whole camp was set up in front of the tipis, with a bar serving real ales and late night fire pit with straw bale sofas all lit by thousands of twinkling lights it came alive after dark - a true festival in the forest.
Kirstie and Lee said " the Granary made our wedding dream truly come to life. We had always wanted a slightly different wedding and didn’t want to pick a package from a traditional venue, we wanted to build our own experience that would be fun and memorable for all involved. As soon as we met Graham and Glenn we knew they could help us to achieve this. Throughout our whole planning experience they were just as excited as us, they listened and added to our ideas and worked hard helping to turn our ambitious plans into reality. To be honest the venue speaks for itself, The Granary and its grounds are breathtaking without any additional decoration so anything we did add was icing on the cake. The only way to understand its beauty is to look around the generous landscape yourself, our guests were blown away by this local jewel. We will be forever grateful to Graham and Glenn for opening the doors to their beautiful home for events and giving us the best day ever, thank you for the memories!"
The Granary and its grounds are primarily a marquee reception site, and the beautiful venue gives you scope to create an original wedding that you and your guests won‘t forget. You can be as hands on as you like – we want to give you the flexibility to put as much of ‘you’ into your special day as you want. The stunning riverside location and 12 acres of grounds nestled in a fold of the River Welland is enough to inspire your own decor or colour scheme and creates the perfect backdrop to your celebrations. There is ample parking under the trees on Coach House lawn, though there is ample hard standing parking available for those who may be less mobile.
The Granary really is a boutique event space and Graham and Glenn go that extra mile to ensure that your wedding runs smoothly. They know how to offer a personal service and are on hand to support you in the months leading you to your wedding and most importantly on your special day itself. If you are looking for a unique location to hold an individual country wedding in the Deeping's then the Granary and its grounds will be perfect for you.
