It's not every day you make a new friend that makes you feel so comfortable it's hard to believe you haven't known them for years, but that's exactly how it felt when we met Lou and Colin from The Old Milking Parlour @ Cavokay House. I've a sneaky feeling she makes most people feel that way!
As part of our standard enquiries to meet the venue and discuss practicalities of driving the bride on the day - which side of the car is the main door on, where would be good locations for photos if the bride wants them - we arranged to pop down to Henstridge (near Wincanton) and view the venue. What could have been a courtesy 10 minute look around turned into an afternoon of relaxed chat, woodland walks, rides in Hettie & tours of the old milking parlour ...
The Old Milking Parlour is a perfect rustic venue. More than just a space to hire, the OMP also has some amazingly fun touches, like their hanging cake stand and bride swing!
It soon became clear we were both cut from the same cloth, both excited about our businesses, loving the interactions with our brides, feeling honoured to be chosen to share their day and going the extra step to help them out. As pretty laid back ladies ourselves it seems natural that we both found our focus on relaxed style weddings.
So if you're a relaxed kinda couple that would love a rustic venue get in touch with Lou & Colin at The Old Milking Parlour.
