Secret World Wildlife Rescue hosts first wedding since restoration

19 Jan 2017

Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset has hosted its first wedding since the recently restored Bluebell Barn reopened its doors

An old piggery barn and Grade II listed building, Bluebell Barn at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Highbridge, Somerset, recently hosted its first wedding since reopening last year.

The conservation work, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, transformed the Bluebell Barn into a multifunctional learning space and meeting room with a modern extension housing the kitchen, accessible toilets and storage facilities.

Keith Weston, head of site services at Secret World, said: “There has been a lot of work done on the Bluebell Barn in the past two years, both on the building itself, inside and out, and on the area around it which has been fully landscaped. The premises are fully licensed which means they also lend themselves to weddings, christenings and corporate events.”

Samantha and Craig Smith from Walton were the first couple to marry at the venue, following its recent restoration.

Samantha said: “I had a vision for our wedding but found it really difficult to find a venue to match. However, we visited the Bluebell Barn at Secret World and knew instantly that it was the perfect venue for us. We had the ceremony in the barn with 47 guests in attendance. It was perfect.”

The Bluebell Barn can host up to 50 guests and is available for hire on an hourly, half day, full day, weekend or weekly basis. For more information, please go to www.secretworld.org/bluebell-barn.
