A Truly Brilliant Wedding Venue

My husband and I got married at The Bridge on 1 July 2023, having initially booked the venue in 2021 following the pandemic. We booked the entire venue, albeit you can simply hire the function suite if you don't require exclusive use of all the facilities. At 100 day guests, and 140 evening guests, we decided it would be better to have exclusive use. This included all 26 of the bedrooms on offer which are simply delightful!

The venue is exceptionally versatile. We chose to have our ceremony and wedding breakfast in the Riverside Suite (function room), our drinks reception in the beautiful gardens, and our evening reception in the bar upstairs. There was ample space for a live singer during the day, and a live 5-piece band in the evening, along with a photo booth, giant light-up letters, and a dance floor which we chose to put in the bar area. However, the space is so flexible, you could set it up in a whole number of different ways.

Ellie, our Wedding Coordinator, and the management team were excellent and nothing was too much effort for them. They allowed us to have complete free range of the venue to do pretty much what we wanted to do with it, whilst providing support and ideas along the way. Ellie was incredibly responsive and flexible in her engagement with us and attended the whole day to make sure everything went to plan. In addition, she would always make herself available to meet at the venue or discuss our plans over the phone. She is simply wonderful and a credit to The Bridge.

Service on the day was brilliant and there were ample staff to cater to our guests and needs. Again, nothing was too much effort.

In respect of food, similarly, this was great. We were offered a number of set menus to choose from which, for us, weren't really what we were looking for. That was no issue for The Bridge who allowed us to create a bespoke menu with the Chef who worked with us to get the perfect wedding breakfast for our day.

We would have no reservations recommending The Bridge as a truly brilliant wedding venue. We had a perfect day.

A fabulous Sunday Lunch experience

Fathers Day Sunday Lunch was absolutely delicious. The staff are so friendly and professional. Very attentive indeed. Ambience was very chilled with a lovely solo singer who was excellent.

The perfect wedding location

If your looking for the perfect wedding venue look no further.
I got married at The Bridge this last weekend and I can not fault it. The service, attentive friendly staff, the incredible food, the beautiful gardens. Everything was well organised, managed beautifully, nothing was too much trouble and the whole experience made it the best day of my life.
We picked The Bridge because we instantly got a great vibe from the place when we first visited for a delicious Sunday lunch. Being dog friendly is a massive bonus (especially for our dog friendly family) and the pooches were well looked after with treats and attention.
I cant fault this amazing place. The bridal suite was gorgeous and we actually stayed in 3 different rooms over the weekend as we kept extending our stay we loved it that much!
Every bed was super cosy and all the rooms were cosy/lovely/clean/quiet.
I highly recommend this place for lunch, dinner, a weekend stay and the breakfast are sublime.
We will be back every year to celebrate as we just feel in love with this place. The perfect location. Its a must visit .. get booking

The most perfect day.

From start to finish everything and everyone at the Bridge hotel were amazing.
The food was first class and beautifully presented.
Fabulously Romantic setting to our wedding which overlooked the Bridge itself in Prestbury.
Beautiful gardens and scenery to say I Do.
Amazing staff that were so attentive and couldn’t do enough to make sure that we and our guests were well looked after.
I wish I could have stayed in that moment forever!
Thank you xxx

Our personal wedding was just perfect!

Since booking our civil ceremony at The Bridge in January, we have been super impressed with the communication. We have emailed back and forth about food, decorations, room bookings etc. and always got a prompt and clear response.

The wedding breakfast menu was really varied and flexible. We required specific food for some of our guests, and the kitchen had no problem catering for us. All of the food was yummy...especially the sticky toffee pudding!

Throughout our day we had a few different decor / table set-ups. The Bridge staff followed our instructions, and the room always looked how we had imagine without us needing to be involved.

The Bridge is in a gorgeous location...Prestbury is beautiful, with the river running through it and plenty of greenery. We got some lovely wedding photos on the day as well.

Overall, the day went just as we had planned, and better!

With just TWO weeks to go The Bridge came to the rescue!

Throughout 2020 we were adamant that our wedding would go ahead, in whatever shape or form Boris would allow .

With just two weeks to go we found ourselves looking for a new wedding reception (don't ask!) and that was when we came across The Bridge. Nothing was too much of an ask in the run up to the day and on the day itself. Megan at The Bridge did everything she could to help make the whole process as easy and as stress free as possible for us.

Our 15 person wedding reception in The Riverside suite was just amazing. From the way Megan dressed the room, the fabulous food and the great service, we had just the best day. All those in attendance on the day also commented on how lovely the food was and how perfect the venue was.

We can't thank the team at The Bridge enough for making our day just amazing. A special shout out to Luis who managed our reception on the day, with my endless requests for expresso martinis and gin and tonics never being too much of an ask!

We can't wait to be able to return again soon.

Love from the Pecks :-)

Unforgettable!!!

From the moment we chose to have our reception at the The Bridge we were treated exceptionally! Nothing was too much trouble.... the Bollin Room where we had our meal was beautiful and Meghan and Holly went above and Beyond for all our guests. I look back now and still cannot believe how perfect our day was... from Holly remembering my favourite wine and Meghan bringing me much needed Prosecco (bridezilla moment necessary) I just wish we could do it again.
My guests still comment on how perfect it was from the food.... presentation and atmosphere! We cannot wait to return again soon!
Thank you so much
Love the Ratcliffe’s ?

Getting married in 2020...no chance! So we thought!

We feel extremely lucky to have been able to say ‘I Do’ this year and what a fabulous day it was.

Our wedding at The Bridge was the most perfect day! Everything from staying the night before, to the morning after was just amazing. So much so we’d love to do it all again, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Both myself & my husband are big foodies, so making sure we had decent food, was a big must & oh my...it was just incredible! We celebrated with our closet family & friends, eating the most delicious food & drinking fabulous wine.

We can’t thank Megan, Holly, Gareth & their team enough. Especially when we brought our wedding forward two weeks, with only 5 days notice due to the ever-changing rules and restrictions we’ve all had to live with this year.

Every single person at our wedding felt the over whelming amount of friendliness that The Bridge staff offer, no ask, was too much trouble.

The Bridge will now & always be a very special place to us & we can’t wait to be able to see everyone again soon.

Love & Hugs
Mr & Mrs Walsh. X
