Had the most fantastic wedding day!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Denley, on 16 May 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2016

Last August we had the most fantastic wedding day. Bowden Hall was a fantastic venue. The buildings, staff and grounds made our day perfect in every way. It was everything we had wished for and more. The bridal party were made to feel so special and nothing was too much trouble. Staff were always on hand if anybody needed them and made the day flow like clockwork. The guests all commented on how beautifully presented the wedding breakfast was and the service. We highly recommend Bowden Hall as your wedding venue - we guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Our day was perfect from beginning to end. The stress of all the planning melted away when everyone at the venue sprung into action from early morning. Nothing was too much trouble and the organisation was excellent. We can't thank the staff and suppliers enough for providing a day that we will remember

A Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Helen and Tony Chong, on 11 Apr 2016

Our wedding at Bowden Hall on 2nd April 2016 really was perfect in every way. From the moment we settled on Bowden Hall as our venue, the staff cannot have been any more helpful. The planning process was smooth and stress free. The day itself was beautiful. Everything ran according to plan and people where on hand to ensure we really did have the perfect wedding. The food was superb. The venue is stunning. Many guests stayed the night and all had nothing but positive words to say about Bowden Hall and the staff. Would highly recommend.

Just to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Bowden Hall who made our wedding day so fantastic. All members went beyond the call of duty to ensure that all went swimmingly. The wedding coordinators ensured that all queries were dealt with, they never made us feel like we were asking too much. Pictures below show the Lakeside Suite (which has recently been renovated) we held the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening do here. My husband and I attended the last wedding fayre before our wedding, the number of people there showed how popular this venue is becoming. Even better is that they use regular suppliers, they all work together as a team which makes the brides planning much easier.
