River Maiden Brides

We have four different types of weddings that all shine in different ways at The Left Bank Village. Today’s blog post is devoted to telling you a bit more about River Maiden Weddings! River Maidens tie the knot in our Garden Room, then head up to Charles’ Bar, our cocktail bar stuffed with vintage treasures for a Drinks Reception and then move into our Wye Terrace Ball-Room for Meal and Party. Our beautiful Garden Room with vintage wall paper is all about terracotta on top of cool blues and whites! To make it feel even more Garden-Like we have bird song tracks that we can play as your guests assemble for the ceremony! The Wye Terrace Ball-Room is gleaming white, fresh and bright, ready to put your colourful stamp on! We are flexible with the food and drink we provide and can cater to what you fancy! We love to hear your ideas! Right in the heart of Hereford, the River Maiden Wedding gets you up close and personal with the banks of the River Wye at our iconic venue; a classic modern piece of architecture with a hippy twist!


Photo Opportunities

There are lots of awesome photo opportunities at The Left Bank Village – in fact we recommend that you and your photographer come together to the venue before your wedding day to suss them all out! Pictured below is our vintage wedding pedal-cab. Park yourself on this for a quirky photo. Here are just some of the other spots at The Left Bank Village where you might like to have photos…

  • Ground photos on the circular balcony on the river terrace.
  • Throwing your bouquet off the festive multi-coloured bandstand.
  • Group photo on the Old Bridge with all your guests!
  • Up the quaint and charming cobbled Gwynne Street, leading up to the Cathedral.

My Favourite Bit!

My name is Natalia and I am one of the wedding coordinators at The Left Bank Village. I thought I’d share with you the bit of our weddings that I like the best! Some brides decide to have a photo with all their guests on the Old Bridge and I absolutely love it when they do! It tends to be just after the ceremony is finished. Bride and Groom will walk back up the aisle and then go to a ‘secret hiding place’ for just a moment. Then some helpful groomsmen shuffle all the guests out of the main entrance where they form lines either side of the slope. Then our PA man moves the speaker outside and we replay the Bride and Groom’s exit song! Then the happy couple come back out, walk through a beautiful shower of confetti and lead their way onto the Old Bridge for a group photo! It is a brilliant moment everytime and occasionally when I’m really lucky I get to stop the traffic!
