Sunny I Dos in the Rain

Not even a British rainy day could dampen the spirits of happy couple, Joanne and Ben. Smiles were the theme of the day, as their love shone through for their I Dos. And there to add that Edwardian sparkle was The Bowdon Rooms – one of Cheshire’s finest wedding venues. With all the details of this lovely day is content writer, Nadia Danaos; while William Ellis provided the photos.

As Bowdon is situated within a sought-after Cheshire idyll, you’re never far from a church in which to hold your civil service. If couple’s prefer to have their civil ceremony and reception all under one roof, then The Bowdon Rooms will be your exclusive hosts for the entire day and night. Joanne and Ben chose to marry in a church and then party with us – and we were very happy to oblige!

Still smiling, Joanne arrives in the rain to meet her groom:

…and then it’s over to our Edwardian premises with their congregation, for some welcome drinks and canapés. Our acclaimed chefs never fail to serve up some delectable delights – whether it’s innovative canapés, a three-course feast or buffet-style meal – they’ll always wow with their flavours.

While guests enjoyed their refreshments, the glowing bride took a turn about our vintage surroundings within our property. Joanne wore a figure-hugging ivory satin gown – with a gorgeous veil-enveloped fascinator.
