A Northumberland wedding venue was saved by a joinery company, who managed to build a unique bar in less than 72 hours before a wedding was about to start.
The wedding venue, Newton Hall, was lacking a dedicated bar space after a recent expansion to its event space. When a last minute wedding was booked at the hotel, the company called on someone they knew who could get the job done!
Crafted & Co, who specialise in handmade furniture and woodwork, were previous clients of the hotel and was contracted to build a new bar area on a tight timescale and under budget. Ken Smith was confident that the project could be completed and had faith in his team of experienced workmen, knowing that they would rise to the challenge.
One hundred man hours later, the craftsmen lead by Managing Director Ken Smith and Operations Director Tony Graham had succeeded. They had managed to create a eight foot long bespoke bar made from solid oak and an ash counter top to a very high standard.
Crafted & Co has a strong client base, including the restaurant Nandos and the nightclub Revolution. They have recently re-branded their company and are currently planning to expand into other markets where bespoke joinery is a sought after commodity.
Andrew Brown, Interior designer at Newton Hall, praised the four man team stating that they were very satisfied by the bar and knew that the company would have pulled through, especially in the small timescale. He also joked that the wedding party made ‘good use’ of our new facilities.
