Calling all brides and grooms planning a wedding in Cornwall – keep your diary free for Saturday October 8th to attend a wedding fayre at Polraen Country House, Looe in South East Cornwall. We have been chosen by Kernow Wedding Belles as the venue for their first wedding fayre! The burgeoning business is destined to change the face of the wedding preparation market so if you want your day to be special, personal, intimate or different, you’ll want to attend this wedding fayre with a difference.
The aim of the family-friendly Looe company is to provide a platform for small, independent companies, so that they can showcase their services and wares at a series of intimate and exclusive wedding fayres across the region, housed in some of the most attractive venues imaginable.
The wedding fayre at Polraen Country House, Sandplace, near Looe, will take place 10.30 am to 4.30 pm on Saturday, October 8. In a peaceful location in the beautiful Looe Valley, 2 miles north of the historic fishing port of Looe in South East Cornwall, our family run 18th century country house hotel is no stranger to weddings. So it’s a wonderful endorsement and accolade that this local company, with expertise in the wedding business, has recognised the unique combination of location and facilities, including the award winning garden, excellent food and service that we offer. They describe our venue as “both beautiful and elegant. Reputedly built as a coaching inn around 1740, it remained part of the nearby Morval Estate until becoming the family home of Peter Bessell, Liberal MP for South East Cornwall in the 1960s. It was later converted into a small hotel and has since undergone considerable refurbishment which complements its natural Cornish country house charm .” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
Kernow Wedding Belles plan “to stage a wedding fayre offering a wealth of taste and style, backed by the hospitality and business acumen gleaned from the proprietors’ combined years of employment experience.” The Belles are the Looe-based mother and daughters team of Stephanie Hawkins, mum to Jodie and recently wed Carrie-Ann Richardson, and all of them have a successful background in the wedding industry. “Response to Looe Wedding Belles’ first fayre has been fantastic with at least five new businesses exhibiting to the market for the first time.”
Exhibitiors will include Cake Makers, Photographers, Jewellers, Car Hire, Bridal wear, Florists, a Travel Company & a whole host of professionals who will be demonstrating their particular expertise in the industry. Free entry & complimentary drink on arrival.
