Back off honeymoon now
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Williamson, on 30 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

Back off honeymoon now and can’t thanks Bolton School Weddings and Events enough for our amazing wedding day. The professionalism of Nirvana, Adele, Helen and Sam was impeccable. We both felt really looked after from the day we booked the wedding right up to the big day. Excellent communication and so accommodating with us. Our day was the best we could have ever imagined from start to finish the girls went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect and it certainly was. The venue is stunning and so well looked after. Lots of guests commented on how amazing it was as a wedding venue. The great hall is breathtaking. Martin Taylor on piano was exceptional he’s so talented!! He played during the ceremony which was so beautiful and he really got the party started during the wedding breakfast, just amazing!! The food was delicious and the buffet was amazing too. Thank you all so much. Simon and Rachael

Our wedding on 28th July was perfect, we loved every second and the team did a fantastic job leading up to and on the day to ensure that our special day was everything we wanted. Thank you to the whole team for everything you did, would highly recommend

Absolutely fantastic venue and events team
Venue Service

By R Nicholls, on 30 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018

Absolutely fantastic venue and events team. Our special day last weekend was just perfect. The team went above and beyond to make our special day unforgettable, especially our co-ordinator Nirvana. The whole day went smoothly without a single fault. The meals were served on time and every guest received the correct meal, which is something that has been an issue at a few weddings we have been to. We can’t fault a single thing and if we had to do it all again (which we wish we could) we would choose Bolton School in a heart beat. Unbelievably organised and professional. We would recommend Bolton School to ANYONE! Thank you so much
