The vision is to purchase the property in the photo and do some renovations as well as installing mobility equipment such as a hoist in one of the ceremony rooms so the bride or groom who is unable to walk can experience the big moment to the fullest! One of the most attractive things about this property is that it already has a downstairs bedroom ready to transform into a disabled access bridal suite with a luxury style walk in shower room. On the land i would like to have a path suitable for a wheel chair to run through the gardens so photos of the big day can be easily taken without complications and discomfort for any brides and grooms or family members of the bride and groom with wheelchair needs. My venue will fully support the lgbt community and will host also charity events.

I am very passionate about being able to support people with disabilities and it is very personal to me I will do everything i can to make this vision reality. I have spoken to friends and family about my plans and ideas and i believe my venue will become noticed and inspire other venues to install mobility equipment to give people with disabilities the wedding day they deserve. 

Highlights

  • Offers proper disabled access and mobility equipment
  • High potential turnover for the venue
  • Country/Manor house are the most popular venue types

Renovation

I have the current floor plans for the property already and have will be in contact with the relevant companies to see what can potentially be done to the interior and the plans for the large extension. I also aim to work with people who have disabilities on the project for the ceremony room with mobility equipment such as a hoist so they can give me on the spot feedback and test out what type of equipment is most suitable for their needs.
The property also has a downstairs bedroom with potential for a walk in shower room for disabled access.
