Vintage Pub Weddings!

The beautiful Sun Inn at Leintwardine has been taken over by a local man with some serious vision and passion for authentic, real ale pubs. Steve Illidge is the landlord at Dolphin in Shrewsbury and also the Black Boy in Bridgnorth and is bringing them back to life. The Sun Inn is his third and it has been whispered his big passion. Alistair Sawday has awarded The Sun it's 'Authentic Pub of the Year' award 2014, and once you step inside you will see why.

Faded original vintage wallpaper, wobbly stone floors, a Victorian parlour and a grade 1 listed parlour room that makes The Sun one of the last original parlour pubs in the UK, it looks like no one has set foot in it since the 60's.

Festoon was over the moon when Steve approached us to decorate and bring even more vintage charm into the already fantastic space. So underway is a little project bringing more original furniture, some upcycled pieces, a splash of colour and just a little more love to The Sun.

Festoon appears to be right at home as we will also be launching the pub's new(ish) eco build extension as a wedding and party venue. Think real ale, hog roast, vintage tea parties, bunting, wild flowers and traditional little weddings at great prices. Sunday 16th November 12 till 4 we are having an open day to show off The Sun at it's most lively. Festoon will be decorating the space as a wedding may look, cake & tea will be served on vintage china, Andy Li will be our roaming photographer, a photo booth by That Photobooth Company will be using the vintage wallpaper as a backdrop and Omie Megan Wedding make up artist will be providing free make overs to all! It's going to be a good one!

For any enquiries about using The Sun Inn at Leintwardine as a Wedding venue do contact me festoon@live.co.uk

Big Love x
