Couples are invited to see Lightwoods House in all its glory at a wedding fair this coming weekend.

Wedding suppliers will be exhibiting their wares and visitors can also look round the house and gardens, which is in Lightwoods Park, Adkins Lane, Bearwood, on Sunday March 3.


Suppliers will include photographers, a venue decorator, wedding car supplier, cake baker,  singer, a dressmaker and florist.

Admission to the fair, which runs from 11am until 3pm, is free.

The stunning 18th century, Grade II-listed house and park have been restored thanks to a £5.2 million project funded by Sandwell Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and BIG Lottery.

Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for leisure Councillor Bill Gavan said: “We’ve hosted many beautiful weddings and civil partnership ceremonies at Lightwoods House and our wedding fairs are always incredibly popular.

We have lots of options to choose from – you can get married in the bandstand or in the ceremony room, we have space for receptions and we offer several catering options.”
