Hey Bees! I’m looking for a bit of opinion here (and I know you aren’t shy on giving it!).
We potentially have the chance to get married at my FI’s old school. They’ve held weddings before, and have a chapel on site, which is literally a 1 minute walk from the venue, with a large grass area outside for drinks, loads of car parking very close indeed to the chapel, and what I think are nice photo opportunities.

Obviously the venue means a lot to my FI, and actually (whilst I didn’t even know him then!) when I was at school I went to a summer camp there, and used to work on the coast about 30 minutes away! So the area means something to me too, and it’s pretty much the only place with meaning that overlaps for the 2 of us.
If anyone wants to look at more photos, google ‘Greshams School, Holt, Norfolk (UK)’
I’d love to hear your honest thoughts!

I like it! So long as it’s not super expensive, I think it looks like a great option!

Just had some fabulous news – the hall itself is only £500 to hire, including being able to set up the day before, and having help to set up!!
The cost also includes hiring the tables and chairs, and cleaning before and after. So long as we can agree with the school chaplain to get married in their chapel, we might have our venue!!

That is a pretty awesome chapel. No need for a lot of decor, either. I’m sure your pictures will be lovely!

@Kellym84: We looked into having our wedding at DH’a school but it wasn’t spectacular looking like what you’re considering. Have you booked it?

I didn’t see you say anything negitive about it.
Do you have any other option that you equally love?
It seems like this is the perfect venue for you 🙂
Why so indecisive?
