Seem less perfection from start to finish - I don’t even know where to start.

This place is everything you could ever want.

Allison and Edward, Helena, Rosie and Hannah all went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect from start to finish. It has been 2 years in the planning and every single aspect of the day was arranged so we had the perfect day in every single way.

The attention to detail and the unwavering support of every single member of the team meant that we had the most magical seamless day. Thank you so so much.

Everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful everything was. We couldn’t of asked for more, you exceeded all our hopes and dreams and we are so truly grateful.

Out of this world!

Now I am not Bias BUT I had the most fantastic day int he most beautiful venue, the staff I could not fault one bit, myself and my other half felt they catered to everybody they were efficient young professionals and were absolutely fantastic at what they do.

The owners could not have made us feel anymore welcome when we first went to view the establishment and then proceeded to answer all questions promptly and professionally, they stayed in touch all the way through and had meetings to help get the day organised and also giving ideas and opinions that you may want to listen to as you don’t think of everything.

This place truly is exceptional, beautiful, professional and if it wasn’t for them and the staff my day would not have gone as perfect as it did, I cannot recommend them enough at all!

We got married at the Bowdon Rooms 2 weeks ago… And we are both still on cloud nine !! Allison, Ed and their outstanding team are amazing !

We viewed the Bowdon Rooms 6 months prior to our wedding day and as soon as we walked in we both instantly knew it was for us ! Helena was our host on that very first visit and she was fantastic she was so accommodating especially as we hadn’t even made an appointment! We literally phoned up as we were in the area and she said “yes come along and see us” Helena was so lovely and we more or less pencilled a date in straight away ! On our second visit we met Allison who along with Helena was fantastic! She came up with great ideas and recommendations and nothing was ever too much trouble!

During the months leading up to the wedding if we needed to contact Allison or Helena they were always on hand and always happy to help even with the most trivial of questions !

Herb and spice the in house catering team are equally as amazing ! The choice on the menus is fantastic! Amy was our point of contact and when we’d chosen our menu Amy then invited us in to have a taster of our chosen food which was presented as it would be on the day ! I honestly couldn’t fault anything all dietary requirements were catered for from a celiac guest to an awkward 14 year old who won’t eat his greens ! Absolutely nothing was too much trouble ! So a big Thank you to Amy !!

Then our day arrived and we were so taken back with How professional the team were ! The communication between the staff was incredible they made our wedding day run like a dream Every step of the way from music to the right mood lighting ! The flow of the day was just so seamless ! Ed was amazing with his powerful voice to direct our guests ! Luckily it was a glorious sunny day and we were able to benefit from the outside area for photos and drinks ! Our guests were made to feel special too with the team walking round with trays of drinks all looking so smart with a smile on their face !

Allison and Ed we commend you ! Your professionalism and the relationship you have with your team is like no other I’ve seen … we would absolutely recommend you to anyone who wants a stress free , high quality wedding with the most perfect of people ! our friends and family had an amazing day with us and they are still talking about how wonderful the Bowdon rooms is!

The Bowdon Rooms will forever have a special place in our heart ! And we’ll never forget the lovely people who made that journey with us !

Massive Thank you to you all !! Xx

Alyson and Ed are an absolute dream team!

We celebrated our wedding at the Bowdon Rooms in April and can not thank Alyson and Ed enough. Alyson is phenomenal at planning, supporting and managing suppliers, timings and the whole day and Ed is equally fabulous at running the bar and evening events. Alyson genuinely helped make our wedding planning experience so much easier- she is truly amazing at her job! Thanks you so much from the Emmotts! If you are after a fun venue to party your wedding day/night away at, we cannot recommend the Bowdon Rooms enough.

I'd rather give 100 stars than 5

We had our wedding here on Friday. I would rather give 100 stars than 5.

Allison, Ed, Anthony and Helena were the most supportive, outstanding, patient, get the idea. Nothing we say could possibly do justice to how amazing this team of people are. Meticulous to every single detail before and during the day. Treated us a king and queen on the day. My husband is a professional wedding singer and has performed at 100s of weddings, taking side the obviously bias, they are the best team he has ever seen by miles at any venue. This wasn't just a wedding to them....they went to extraordinary lengths to make this the best wedding and day for us both. If anyone is ever questioning to chose The Bowdon Rooms above anywhere else, my advice would be just book it and watch your perfect day unfold.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and our guests hearts. You were all perfect.
