Historic England states*:

Castle Bromwich Church started off as a small stone chapel built by one of the de Bromwich family in 1165: the de Bromwich family were the lords of Castle Bromwich manor at the time.

In the 15th Century, a wooden framed chapel was added. While stone was very limited in the Birmingham area, wood was an easy resource thanks to the nearby Forest of Arden.

In the 18th Century when Sir John Bridgeman II became lord of Castle Bromwich Hall, he had the manor and the church rebuilt in brick to match the English Renaissance style of the time.He decided to keep the old wooden frame in place and to build the new brick church around it.

This is the only church in the country where this has been done.


The Holiday Inn, Birmingham Airport

It was built in 1937 as RAF Headquarters when the main airport was Elmdon Airport.

The building is described as being art-deco and celebrated being 80yrs old in 2017.

This wedding took place in 2015 and the hotel has been subject to refurbishment since then.

I don't know if the hotel still caters for weddings as there is nothing that currently mentions weddings on their website.
