Whether you’re more black-tie ballroom, barbecuing by the barn, or somewhere in between, here are our top tips for pulling off a gorgeous, glam wedding.

The Venue

Our magnificent Manor offers instant glam with its grand marble staircase, crystal chandeliers and classic features guaranteed to WOW your guests. Therefore, you don’t need to splash out on decorations; as the Manor has it all built in.

Rustic Glam is a big trend right now, and The Barn at Old Down is the perfect backdrop for your rustic glam themed wedding. From the rustic, wooden chandeliers to gold-plated finishing touches on the tables. The contrast between the rustic venue and glam decorations will make your wedding feel glamorous and bold.

The Bridal Look

Make your grand entrance with a dress that sparkles. We LOVE gowns with a beaded bodice and matching sparkly accessories to make a dramatic statement. Or choose a more understated look with a sweetheart neckline, a long veil and full glam makeup. Including dark lashes, a subtle smokey eye and the perfect nude lip. It’s also worth taking your gowns neckline into consideration when thinking about your hairstyle. Strapless sweetheart necklines look flawless with a sweeping up-do, while loose waves compliment the shape of a deep V-neck. Here are two of our stunning brides look glam on their special day.

The Decor

Craft intimate mood lighting for your table tops with strategically placed candles alongside your floral centrepieces to create a luxurious vibe and rich texture to the dining experience. Ask your wedding stylist to play around with different types of flowers, arrangements and centrepiece styles to evoke extra drama.
