If you sense a wildlife theme in Jenny and Paul’s wedding images, that’s because Spring Grove House is right in the middle of West Midland Safari Park. Although the animals were well contained well away from the wedding, they feature prominently in the house, from the animal print carpets to the huge mural on the staircase and as numerous ornaments all around the place.

The park also contains a small fairground, with a carousel that the happy couple were invited to have a go on. Unfortunately due to ‘health and safety’ the ride wasn’t allowed to be moving (!), so understandably they quickly lost interest and headed back to the party.

With the wedding breakfast complete (at tables named after Jenny and Paul’s favourite bands) and the speeches enjoyed, the party relocated downstairs in the basement. Great day, great venue and no wild behaviour until after I left.
