Wedding Fairs: Catching Two Love Birds with One Stone…

When the newly-engaged Katie and Mark visited the wedding fair at The Bowdon Rooms some three years ago, they ended up booking their wedding venue there and then. Who knew? But then that’s exactly what wedding fairs are for – so prepare to be inspired!

And on 26th February, it’s your turn. We’ll be bringing more wedding ideas and nuptial glamour to bride and grooms-to-be – within our glam ballroom, where live music will create a fabulous festival atmosphere. We hope to dazzle and mesmerise you with creative concepts from the area’s top names in photography, favours, florists and more. With more than 25 exhibitors, maybe your wedding day will become closer than you think?

Our bride Katie commented, “Mark was something of a ‘tough sell’ when it came to wedding venues – but we both fell in love with The Bowdon Rooms as soon as we stepped into a Brides Up North event!”

The power of a wedding fair

Never underestimate the humble wedding expo. They are there to inspire, and help you to dream and create. All you need do is turn up. With free entry, you can bag as many wonderful thoughts for your Big Day as your imagination desires – there’s bound to be something that’ll make you smile with wonder, leaving you starry-eyed.

So while you’re at the wedding fair, trying to picture what your big day will look like, you too might be swept up by the Edwardian elegance of The Bowdon Rooms, and like Katie and Mark, end up having your dream wedding. Read more about their fabulous day, here.

“A beautiful venue, full of quirks and great character, The Bowdon Rooms has the unique ability to take on almost any theme while retaining its own character.” Katie & Mark


Another couple similarly love-struck were Hannah and Matthew Doherty. Visiting our Brides Up North fair to gain some bridal inspo, Hannah was taken by the splendour of our vintage environs and suddenly envisaged her wedding day. “I just knew it was for us”, she said. And so their wedding date was set…



Perhaps you too may leave our wedding fair with more than you bargained for, when you experience first-hand period charm within our Bowdon premises. So, fall in love all over again at our Brides Up North wedding fair – open from 11am to 3pm on 26th February 2017.
