What I think of The Daffodil as a wedding venue
If you’re looking for a wedding venue with a unique style, maybe someting of a glamorous vintage look, then The Daffodil is definitely a great place to start.
I’ve loved this building since living in Cheltenham, and have eaten in the restaurant many times. The food is excellent, the atmosphere wonderful and if you like a Jazz feel, or that cinematic style of the 1920’s then this must be the wedding venue for you.
It’s definitely a good venue to consider if you are having a themed wedding, and gives guests a chance to dress up for a special one off occasion.
The sweeping staricase and architecture inside is stunning. Guests can enjoy drinks on the balcony area, before sitting for dinner in the main restaurant area below.
This is however very much an indoor wedding venue. For wedding photos at The Daffodil, I’d recommend using the main entrance with its stunning checkered floor, or perhaps the nearby Montpellier Park, Cheltenham, if time allows.
Inside is lit atmospherically, although there is very little natural light. For this reason you’ll need to ensure you have a photographer who is used to working in low light.
