Blackdown Events

On the blog today we catch up with Gemma Sparks from Blackdown Events. "Hi, I’m Gemma and I love weddings! I have worked in the events industry for a number of years and being inspired by planning my own wedding in 2011 when the opportunity presented itself to set up a a new wedding venue in 2013 I jumped at the chance! Along with my husband, Rob, I moved to the family farm at the end of 2012 when Rob started working here full time. Shortly after, our daughter was born. The farm has a beef herd, a chicken flock and arable crops and is set in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. My new surroundings inspired me to use all of my industry experience to create this truely special venue. Blackdown Events provides you with the opportunity to host your wedding celebration at The Haymeadow, a traditional meadow that is exclusively yours to create the wedding of your dreams. The Haymeadow benefits from access direct from the road, therefore you dont need to worry about traipsing through farmyards to get to your wedding or early morning wake up calls! I aim to provide you with something different to the normal run of the mill wedding venue, a blank canvas and a place to create a wedding as unique as you are. To help with your creative vision I am able to offer every couple tailored expert advice, from which suppliers to use to how to create the perfect wedding celebration. In the Blackdown Hills we are blessed with lots of brilliant local suppliers who we are more than happy to help you to have a brilliant day!" Email: Web: Tel: 07533 340847
