Everything was personal, friendly and perfect
Venue Service

By Mary Piekarski, on 29 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2017

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
Venue Service

By Georgina & Ville, on 02 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

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.

Once we decided to have our wedding in the UK we actually chose The Bowdon Rooms very quickly. My aunt had her wedding reception at The Bowdon Rooms in 1991 and I had grown up in the area so I already had an idea of what the venue looked like from primary school singing competitions. 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!

The team brought everything together prefectly!

TBR is a lovely old building with bags of character and had lots of space for all our guests and the many activities we had planned. The wedding planners really helped us to bring it all together perfectly. As our wedding was in December, we had a festive theme and guests commented on the Christmas tree which was huge and fit perfectly with our themes. And the food was excellent!

Our wedding was better than we had ever imagined!

By Hayley & Tim Jennings, on 19 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2016

We knew immediately that this venue was for us – it was large and seemed to work perfectly with our theme. Karen was exceptional, she went through every detail with us several times so we had confidence everything would be perfect.

We just knew our wedding would be perfect here
Venue Service

By Laura and Louie Mulhern Atnell, on 08 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

As soon as we arrived at The Bowdon Rooms, we instantly got that feeling that everything would be perfect in this venue. We were absolutely wowed. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue looked, and how it felt different from other weddings - it was more like a party than a wedding. We loved it!

I was standing in a venue I had always dreamed of
Venue Service

By Joanna & Damian Swift, on 19 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Sep 2016

Everything was absolutely stunning! I felt so overwhelmed and never felt so happy as that moment standing with my new husband, in front of a room I had always dreamed of. It was perfect. Better than we’d ever imagined. Friends said how beautiful the venue was dressed – and both sets of parents were amazed and stunned by the team and how they had decorated everywhere. They commented on how organised Karen was and the fact that everything ran so smoothly. I was glad that Karen and her team set it all up – this was a great weight lifted off our minds, knowing that it was all going to be done for us. And all the staff were so friendly and approachable.

We could not fault this venue. We loved it all!

By Pauline & Bo Kirton, on 19 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2016

All of our friends and family said they had a wonderful time. The venue was great, the food fabulous, and the entertainment was awesome! As far as we were concerned, The Bowdon Rooms offered us everything we required and more. We simply loved the venue and could not fault the team

We cannot thank The Bowdon Rooms team enough!
Venue Service

By Katie & Mark Waters, on 16 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2016

Karen and her team were absolutely amazing from start to finish. When it came to organising the day, there was no request too big or small. Karen is an absolute pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. The wedding we had planned was executed to perfection. We could not have asked for more from The Bowdon Rooms team. We were very emotional when we first saw the room dressed! It looked absolutely stunning! Thanks to the team of wedding organisers, we had our dream wedding day!

We are eternally grateful to The Bowdon Rooms!
Venue Service

By Kimberley and Mike Edmonds, on 01 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2016

We had the most amazing day that we will remember for the rest of our lives. The Bowdon Rooms played a huge part in this. The venue was exactly what we wanted as we felt our wedding was individual and unique to us. I am a perfectionist and therefore it was just brilliant to be able to trust the wedding organiser, Karen, and hand over control as I knew she would create our perfect day - and she did! We will be eternally grateful!

It was love at first sight...ten out of ten!
Venue Service

By Emma & Dave Ronan, on 16 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 18 Jun 2016

We originally came for a vintage wedding fair to get some inspiration, and came away having booked it! Loved the history of the place – over 100 years of Edwardian fabulousness. Karen (the planner) was brilliant. I knew I didn’t want a conventional wedding; I wanted quirky and different which is why this venue was perfect. Karen understood this from the word go and helped us every step of the way – from décor, to food …everything!” The Bowdon Rooms made our perfect day even more perfect and we can’t thank them enough!
