Adlington Hall and Gardens – Wedding Open Weekend
Last weekend was our first Open Weekend of the year, we welcomed many new couples who hadn’t visited Adlington Hall before and also caught up with lots of our already booked, soon to be ‘newlyweds’.
Unlike the Open Events we have done in the past, we decided not to have different suppliers exhibiting but to concentrate on showing the beauty of our venue itself. We did have a little help in making the day such a success. HUGE thanks to the following for all their fabulous help…
Barretts Event Caterers: www.barrettseventcaterers.com – Our amazing exclusive caterers, had different open kitchen sessions over the weekend allowing people to sample their gorgeous food, after watching how it is made.
Mark R Williamson: www.mrandmrsw.com/photography – The extremely skilled and creative photographer, Mark came and captured the weekend for us. He has worked with us a number of times over the last few years and we all love his work.
Aureum Events: www.aureumevents.co.uk – Jill and her team helped dress our Hunting Lodge and put stunning candle lanterns in the Great Hall of Adlington Hall, to show different ideas; from Room décor to Candy Carts, Aureum can help make your wedding day dreams become reality.
Harry Jon Hair & Make-up: www.harryjon.com – Clare, a qualified hair dresser and HD air brush makeup artist, set up in our recently refreshed Bridal Area ready to help with any wedding day hair and/or make up queries, she helped show how this area is perfect to get ready in on your special day. She also, very kindly, helped a few of our team with some hair and make-up tips too!
Guy Porteous: www.guyporteous.co.uk – We have worked with Guy for many years, he is an extremely talented pianist. He played his beautiful white piano in the Great Hall of Adlington Hall, demonstrating how having a musician playing for your ceremony in the Great Hall can really add a personal touch, whist making use of the high ceiling acoustics of our fabulous hall.
Cheshire East Registrars: www.yourceremony.org.uk – The lovely ladies from the Cheshire East Registrars carried out a Your Ceremony, Your Choice, Showcase, explaining the running of your wedding ceremony.
Begin The Party: www.begintheparty.com – Jordan organised a number of different performers to play alternate sets of live music in The Hunting Lodge, over both days. We had fabulous bands in the main function room and acoustic singers in the bar area, showing again how live music can really make a difference on your special day. We heard nothing but praise for all the artists, each brought a little something different!
Scavi & Ray Processo: www.scavi-ray.com – We were very kindly given a number of bottles of Prosecco, so we were able to offer everyone a glass of something sparkling. It went down a treat, not surprisingly really as it is a lovely ‘tipple’!!!

Isaac Charles Bridal Lounge: www.isaaccharlesbridal.co.uk – The kind ladies at the Poynton shop, let us use one of their stunning gowns to display in our Bridal Area, to help potential brides envisage what I would be like to get ready on the morning of their wedding.
