Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We are proud to have hosted a large number of weddings at both the Town Hall and Corn Exchange! All are special and range from traditional events with a classic wedding breakfast to quirky receptions with a sweet shop! One memorable wedding featured pie and mash for the wedding breakfast, champagne drunk from tea cups and flower filled pumpkins adorning the stairs!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Meet the team from your venue as soon as you start planning your big day. Our Venues team pride themselves on supporting couples (and their families!) through the process of planning and organising the wedding and, of course, on the day itself. They love to get involved and are (almost) as proud as the family when the big day happens!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Lots of personal touches spring to mind - at a recent wedding guests were encouraged to write a personal message to the bride and groom and 'post' it in an original vintage post box! The box was cast iron and weighed a ton manoeuvring it into position, but it looked great!
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
On the staircase in the Town Hall.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
All our brides and grooms are celebrities!
What’s your favourite canapé?
Smoked salmon blinis
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Toast, marmite and lashings of salted butter!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The Adams ceiling in the Assembly Room with the three gorgeous chandeliers.
