So, you can enjoy the stress-free planning of your nuptials, as you witness it unfolding before you. Turning around your dream day is all in a day’s work.

Allow us to introduce you…

Karen Halfpenny is the Wedding Planner & Events Manager at The Bowdon Rooms. Creating dream weddings is something she does rather well. With thirteen years at our vintage venue (with us from the word go), she is integral to the warmth and hospitality of our bespoke service.

Acquiring planners with a venue can sometimes be a bit hit and miss, but with The Bowdon Rooms you’re always in safe hands.

Over the years, we’ve had some incredible feedback, and it’s testament to not only excelling in what we do, but achieving the aspirations of our clients – and beyond.

Karen has been assisted for several years by the talented Suzanne Rice, our Events Co-ordinator. Together they have formed a solid, smart team to bring our couples the sparkle and edge that each of our weddings exude.

Themes from vintage tea party and ’50’s gangster, to timeless black-tie or 1930’s deco…The Bowdon Rooms not only accommodates, but with their extensive range of top-notch names in the business, they will create any fairy-tale ambiance tailored completely to you.

For every wedding we hold, The Bowdon Rooms provides a completely bespoke service. With the entire premises at the disposal of our couple for the day, guests can relax in the knowledge of having a personal, dedicated service – from the drinks and menus, to multiple room hire and tailored décor. Our planners can refer to their comprehensive list of fabulous suppliers in the area, which our bride and groom can use if they wish.

So much more than simply a host for your Big Day

We have access to all the details that bring a wedding together. As well as being Altrincham’s finest wedding venue, we are also home to The Cinnamon Club – one of Manchester and Cheshire’s reputed music venues. And that means we’re experts at throwing music into the mix. So, if a great musical act is what you’re after for your wedding, our finger is firmly on the pulse for sourcing the soundtrack to your day.

``We definitely felt our wedding was in safe hands. All our ideas were welcomed and executed perfectly.``

Personalised on every level – with as little or as much input from us as you require – we’re always here when you need us. With sumptuous tailored menus by our very own world-accredited chefs, we’ll ensure the flavours blend seamlessly with the beautiful backdrop to create the ideal ambiance for you and your guests. Come down to The Bowdon Rooms and experience the magic for yourself.
