15 Apr Autumn Nuptials, Sunshine Smiles…
The sun was shining, autumn was in the air, and the happy couple shared their momentous day within our Edwardian premises. With words by Nadia Danaos and photographs by Lawson Photography, this is how Vikki and Simon’s beautiful day transpired…
For the wedding party of 100, the ceremony of our couple was held upstairs in our Lounge – a popular choice for couples to exchange their vows amidst their guests. To the words of our lovely bride: “We had the option to have the small intimate ceremony upstairs in the jazz room, with its black and white theme and the pictures of musicians which reflected our love of music. The lighting and window dressing made the room light but still retained the intimacy we were looking for.”
There was a wonderfully down-to-earth and natural beauty to this occasion; an apt reflection of the couple themselves, who were clearly relaxed and full of love for each other – captured perfectly by Lawson Photography.
The atmosphere had a real vintage feel to it – featuring a beautifully understated bespoke dress and bouquet; a white Camper van as the bride’s steed; and individual-design bridesmaid’s dresses in a charming hue of midnight blue…
This theme was perfectly at home alongside the period Edwardian features within our venue.
As ever, The Bowdon Rooms organisers are always on-hand with their expertise – whether it’s lighting ideas, recommending cake specialists or menu advice. It was so wonderful to hear such fabulous comments from our couple and their guests: “Suzanne could not have been more helpful and immediately understood our requirements even though we had a very long list and lots of questions! Literally all of our guests commented on the uniqueness of the venue itself and how friendly and helpful all of the staff at The Bowdon Rooms were.”
…And when it came to the unveiling of our grand ballroom… “Finally seeing all the lighting, flowers and decorations together was very emotional. The venue looked better than we had ever envisaged, and couldn’t wait for all of our guests to see the main room downstairs.”
Warmest congratulations to the wonderful Vikki and Simon!
