We were Regional Finalists for Wedding Venue of the Year 2019!

A few months ago we found out that The Bowdon Rooms had become Regional Finalists for Wedding Venue of the Year (North West) in the 2019 Wedding Industry Awards! We were so proud and delighted to feature as finalists beside some other stunning wedding venues and our wedding planning team were overwhelmed by the incredible feedback that we received from our customers as part of the awards process!

Looking back on what a fantastic year we had in 2018, we wanted to share some of the wonderful comments we received with you all!


Comments from Amy and Sean who got married at The Bowdon Rooms in August 2018:

“The Bowdon Rooms provided us with the perfect wedding day. Straight from the start, Karen the wedding planner was very helpful and honest in preparing us for our wedding day. We were allowed to ask any question (stupid) or not and she made us feel very welcomed and she eventually felt part of the family. The venue itself was set up beautifully and it’s a day we will never forget. We would recommend The Bowdon Rooms to anybody.”

Comments from Natasha and Chris who got married at The Bowdon Rooms in March 2018:

“From the first time we arrived at The Bowdon Rooms we were made to feel welcome and were given constant reassurance that everything would be taken care of. Throughout the whole process Karen the wedding planner was there for us and nothing was ever too much trouble. We left each meeting feeling confident that our ideas would be realised and the end result was better than we could have imagined. We had been to visit other venues and felt something was missing – we found this at The Bowdon Rooms!”

Comments from Mary and Chris who got married at The Bowdon Rooms in October 2017:

“Karen, Neil, Ben and Dominic Halpin and the Honey Bs gave us the perfect wedding. We didn’t want a white wedding – we wanted a cosy autumnal party with black decorations and fairy lights. The team pulled out all the stops and even had pumpkin decorations around. The whole family said it was perfect. The ceremony was intimate, the evening do was full of music and dancing, and the food was delicious. Our wishes for a non traditional wedding did not just come true, but they were exceeded.”

Comments from our 300th Wedding Couple Lizzie and Edd who got married at The Bowdon Rooms in September 2018.

“We originally wanted a “DIY” wedding but after popping into The Bowdon Rooms wedding fair we instantly knew it was for us. In practical terms it was big enough to hold all our guests (circa 120), we could do both the ceremony and the reception, it was local and value for money! The staff were really flexible in allowing us to make it our own and unique to my husband and I. We wanted a botanical, natural feel and characteristics of the building really added to that. It was definitely a day we won’t forget!”

Comments from Holly and Matt who got married at The Bowdon Rooms in September 2018:

“We would definitely recommend this venue! The staff were extremely personable. Karen the events manager could not do enough for us and she ensured that everything we asked for was delivered on the day (including refurbishing the floorboards in the ceremony room!). One of the best things about the about the venue is that you can completely design your own wedding from start to finish. The venue were very flexible and accommodating to all our requests but also clearly experienced offering sound advice.”
