5 Ways to use the Courtyard at Alcumlow Wedding Barn

Just a few years ago, a brand new Outdoor Courtyard was added to the grounds at Alcumlow Wedding Barn, and what an addition it has been!

Sitting directly behind the Wedding Barn, the Courtyard provides a perfect flow from inside to outside and offers another totally unique space for you and your guests to enjoy on your wedding day.

The Courtyard oozes Spanish charm from its terracotta walls and patterned tiles to its Mediterranean plants and warm hanging lights. Stepping into the Courtyard is like stepping into a new destination. Despite its distinctive character, the Courtyard is an extremely versatile space which can lend itself to many different uses throughout your wedding day. Here are just a few...

1. Casual Dining

The Courtyard boasts a fully functional Outdoor kitchen, making it the perfect place for our caterers to cook up a storm in view of your guests. (This will really get their taste buds tingling!) A huge, top of the range pizza oven takes pride of place in the Courtyard's Kitchen and delivers the most incredible handmade pizzas of your choice.

2. Games Time!

Once bellies are full, the Courtyard can be transformed to offer the perfect space for some fun and games. Beer pong tends to be the game of choice with our couples and never fails to get the party started!

3. A Moment to Reconnect

You may wish to save the Courtyard for evening antics only and keep it as your little secret during the day. This way you can sneak away and enjoy a quiet moment together to reconnect and gush about your wedding day.

4. Sunset Cocktails

When the sun is setting across the Cheshire countryside, the Courtyard is the place to be. The incredible changing colours of the sky only add to the Spanish setting and really set the tone for some casual cocktail sipping.

5. Sparkler Photos

Sparkler wedding photos have become really popular and it's easy to see why! They offer a great way to involve all of your guests in your photographs which you will treasure forever and it's also really fun! The stone wall in the Courtyard provides the perfect backdrop.

Our couples never fail to surprise us with new and inventive ways to dress and use our venue, so we look forward to seeing what's next for the Courtyard!
