Shrewsbury Wedding

Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, and the centre stands on a hill inside a loop of the beautiful River Severn which has shaped its past greatly. It still has much of the medieval street plan and hundreds of listed buildings that catch the eye wherever one walks. As it is close to the Welsh border, it acts as a commercial centre for mid-Wales. It was also the birthplace of Charles Darwin and is where he spent many years of his life – a fact used to market several local venues. If you get married here you have a wonderful choice of backdrops for your wedding photography.

The Great Barn - Venue - Shropshire
Approx crow-flies distance from selected city centre: 5 miles.

In contrast to the many barn offerings that are hundreds of years old, this is a modern agricultural structure.
