Lauren and Ed's stylish REAL Wedding at Priston Mill in Bath

After the year we’ve all had, we were absolutely thrilled to be hosting so many big and beautiful weddings over Summer 2022. 130-day guests? Sure! A live band? Why not! We simply love all of the little personal touches that each individual couple choose to enhance their special days with us here in the Somerset countryside, and we are so happy to be able to say yes, yes, yes to all of them!

In this month’s blog we wanted to feature a very special couple who got married with us with *no restrictions* back in the late summer of 2021. Friday 20th August in the gorgeous Tythe Barn at Priston Mill in Bath, it was a wonderful day in glorious Somerset, prepped and ready for the talented Navid Mughal’s camera! A selection of photos so stunning, we thought it’d be rude not to share…

Once the wedding ceremony was completed at the local St John’s church in Bath, and the guests had drank their fill of fizz and bottled beers, we sat them down to dine in the spacious stone walled wedding Barn. To the eclectic sounds of Cotswold Wedding Guitarist Matt who brought his awesome Jukebox set-up, the guests enjoyed a scrumptious feast, followed by speeches, and of course, more fizz! The fact that both Lauren and Ed work in the events and weddings industry was more than likely one of the factors that led to such a wonderfully well thought out and executed wedding day!

We asked Lauren and Ed, the new Mr & Mrs Grace for some words on their day, and Gabby, one of our Event Managers at Priston Mill was over the moon to be sent the below email after the happy couple returned from honeymoon:

"Thank you SO much for everything you did for us on our wedding day!! You have been an absolute star throughout the final stages of our wedding planning. We had such confidence in you just from emailing, but when we met you the day before the wedding we knew we were in the best hands.

We had the most amazing day and your endless hard work throughout the entire wedding made this happen. You (and your staff) were simply outstanding. Your smiley, calm and professional approach to your job is a real asset to Priston Mill and we couldn’t have wished for anything more from you, a truly fantastic Event Manager!!! The venue looked amazing and exactly as we had pictured it, our decorations were set up perfectly, we really appreciate your efforts in the morning! A big thanks also for sorting the cake when it eventually arrived. We had no idea it was being set up, but when we did see it we were so impressed it had just happened with no interruption to our day.

 Thank you once again!! Ed & Lauren Mr & Mrs Grace (20.08.2021)"
