    Everything was personal, friendly and perfect

    The day made us feel magical! It was perfect! We’ve had so many guests commenting that it was the best wedding they’ve been to. Our real must-have was to have a wedding that was not traditional. We didn’t want a white wedding and really wanted it to feel like a family party. The autumnal/Halloween feel was created perfectly by using black linen, fairy lights and pumpkins. We knew after our first meeting that we wanted to have our wedding at The Bowdon Rooms. We were just blown away by how much freedom was allowed with the planning. Karen immediately encouraged us to do things the way we wanted. She helped us with every aspect of the wedding and we felt like she was always there to answer any questions we had. She accommodated everything we asked for including the food, the non-traditional style, the party feel, the music and the decorations. Everything was personal, friendly and perfect for what we wanted in a wedding. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. We can’t thank you enough. It was honestly absolutely perfect and from day one we’ve been in awe that you’ve let us customise so much about the day when other venues have been very strict about what their weddings had to be like. Thank you!

    The day was beyond perfect! Thank you

    We decided on The Bowdon Rooms pretty much as soon as we saw the hall and the beautiful high ceilings, it was perfect for what we were looking for… a blank canvas that we could decorate to our specifications. We had seen a couple of other venues but they were no where near as good as The Bowdon Rooms. As nice as country manors can be… they’re not exactly willing to let you dress the room the way you want! The wedding planners were there every step of the way with us. We had meetings every so often and all my queries were answered and they helped with everything we were struggling with. We were so happy when we saw the venue all dressed for our wedding – it was beyond perfect. We had made everything ourselves and The Bowdon Rooms put them all up for us. I love that they let you create the perfect bespoke décor for you! Everyone loved the venue and the theming and they said it suited my husband and I to a T. I can honestly say that The Bowdon Rooms don’t need to improve a thing – just keep doing what you’re doing.

    Made the evening part of our day really special

    Once we decided to have our wedding in the UK we actually chose The Bowdon Rooms very quickly. The fact that The Bowdon Rooms did everything for us was great. Because of where we live we knew it wasn’t possible to choose a venue where we arranged everything ourselves. We had loads of assistance from the wedding planner Karen – she was absolutely fantastic! She had all my wishes laid out and knew everything that I wanted… Without her I don’t think it would have been possible to have the event in the UK! I was blown away when I first saw the ballroom all decorated – it looked amazing, really beautiful. I hadn’t imagined it would look like that! I thought I knew how everything would look but in reality it surpassed my expectations ten fold. Our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and they particularly loved the flowers (created by Sheila Halkyn) and all the decorations. The food was also lovely. I had so many compliments from the guests about how tasty the meal was! I was also really grateful that we had access to the lighting and sound system – it was brilliant, truly made the evening part of our day really special.
