A FAMILY-RUN wedding venue famed for its ‘quirky’ setting has expanded the business to accommodate the bridal party’s ‘inner circle’.

Owen House Wedding Barn, set in the depths of Mobberley’s countryside, has been open for three years. It is run by family members Dan and Vanessa Morgan, Caroline and Richard Smart and their parents Jeanne and Ed Daniel.

The working beef cattle farm provided the setting for both Dan and Vanessa’s and Caroline and Richard’s wedding days and has since grown to act as a fully-functional wedding business complete with bar, marriage suite and space to accommodate a wedding breakfast for 150 to 200 people.

But the family decided it was missing the opportunity for brides to have their family and friends stay at the venue, and has built new themed accommodation with a twist to make their day extra special.

Dan, 43, co-founder of Owen House Wedding Barn, said: “The rooms are an additional thing that the bride and grooms want. They want their grandparents and their mum and dad.”

Each room is designed around the name of an alcoholic drink, including No 47 named after Monkey 47 gin and Hunters named after Hunters Gin and each has unique décor to represent the theme, including monkey and lion shaped lamps.

The bathrooms are kitted out with Villeroy and Boch, with beds from the Wrought Iron & Brass Bed Company and dressings from Graham and Green.

Dan added: “The new accommodation is quite contemporary. We have built a reputation over the last three years for holding relaxed, stylish and quite informal weddings- something people seem to be wanting more and more.”

The pièce de résistance is two family rooms named ‘Narnia’, in which there is wardrobe in the main bedroom with a hidden door at the back to reveal another bedroom.

Owen House Wedding Barn is hosting two open days on January 21 and 22 from 12pm to 4pm.
