With the daffodils popping their heads out and the first baby lambs in the West Sussex fields, it feels like spring is in the air. Yes, in February! And that can only mean that wedding season is not too far away! Now, you may be asking yourself why a commercial groundworks company is writing an article about weddings? And you would be right to pose that question. We love a good wedding as much as the next person… But we’re not here to advise you on canapés or floral arrangements. We’ll leave that to the hospitality experts. But it’s those hospitality experts for whom we are writing this article. Owners and managers of wedding venues and hotels, read on because this is for you!
How a Commercial Groundworks Company can help venues and hotels throw a perfect wedding:
First up, a little background on what inspired us to write this post. Last year, a member of our team attended a super wedding at a beautiful venue close to West Sussex. It was in July 2021, and the government had just lifted COVID restrictions around wedding venues. Nevertheless, this wedding had always been planned as an outdoor event. The weather Gods came to the party, which turned out to be one of the hottest weekends of the year.
The reception was held in an orchard (with a river close by), and that night, as the beautiful clear skies darkened and the ground cooled, a heavy dew fell on the grass. The car parking was a walk across the meadow, and our team member didn’t notice the moisture seeping into her suede Jimmy Choo’s until it was too late!
The moral of the story is, of course, for hospitality venues to contact a commercial groundworks company! 😉
How we help:
Paths and access:
We can help you facilitate easy, comfortable accessibility throughout your venue, saving other suede Jimmy Choos from a soggy fate.
Paths and walkways don’t need to blight the beautiful backdrop of your venue. We’ve worked at hospitality venues in stunning rural locations in West Sussex and beyond, including the Pig Hotel chain. So, we know how to ensure that function doesn’t compromise aesthetics.
As a commercial groundworks company, we can ensure your car park facilities withstand the elements. We’ll also future proof them with service installations for electric charging points. But, perhaps, most importantly, we’ll ensure they make a great first impression on your guests and visitors.
Patios and Seating Areas:
We can help you maximise your venue space by making the most of outside areas. As a commercial groundworks company, we will often see the potential in underutilised areas.
If you’re ready to find out how our groundworks services can help you improve this summer’s trading, give us a call.
