Six ways to have an unforgettable wedding at Breadsall Priory
Whether you’ve been dreaming about your big day since childhood, or always believed you’d never say, “I do”, nothing quite prepares you for the extensive planning and organising that goes into the big day. With tens of thousands of venues and suppliers all claiming to do weddings best, navigating the planning minefield can be a daunting task. Here, Michelle Clarke, Senior Events Manager at Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club, reveals how you can have an unforgettable wedding day, courtesy of the stunning Derbyshire venue.
1 Your Wedding Your Way
The key to creating a wedding day to remember is establishing exactly what ‘your wedding, your way’ means to you. Properly understanding what it is that’ll ensure your vision comes to life all comes down to thorough organisation. The wedding team at Breadsall Priory are all committed to helping brides and grooms achieve their fairytale wedding. Owed to their wealth of experience, they can offer expert knowledge and advice about the best suppliers and details to complement your wedding look book.
2 Utilise The Great Outdoors
The ‘woodsy’ wedding theme has grown ever more popular of late, and fortunately, owed to the acres of lush greenery surrounding Breadsall Priory, it isn’t a hard theme to achieve. Nature, and all its beauties, presents endless outdoor themed wedding opportunities, which can help to make your big day extra special.Think tipis, marquees, food vans and jumbo outdoor games.
3 Photography Opportunities
Big days can often pass by in a blur, so it’s important to make sure the celebrations are captured in the best way possible. Luckily, Breadsall Priory’s picturesque woodland backdrop and historical grandeur can translate superbly into photography; creating some of the most dramatic and – in some cases – award winning photography in the Midlands. Since Breadsall Priory is renowned for being the oldest Marriott in the world, with rooms dating back to 1260, its historical intricacies offer unique photo opportunities, far from the traditional wedding image.
4 Relaxing Facilities – Golf & Spa
We know weddings can be stressful, and with all the planning and organising that goes into making sure the day runs smoothly, brides and grooms often forget to relax. We always encourage brides and grooms to stay with us prior to their wedding day and enjoy a fun-filled, stress-free afternoon with their respective wedding parties. With the hotel featuring two golf courses, a spa retreat and a restaurant, there is perfect opportunity to find an escape from any pre-wedding jitters.
5 Attend Showcases
It can be such a scary prospect, not knowing how your wedding could look until the big day itself. Fretting about whether the venue can fit enough chairs comfortably, or whether your theme will go well with the venues décor, can be easily avoided if you take advantage of any wedding showcases that are organised before your big day. Breadsall Priory holds regular events throughout the year, where suppliers showcase their services and rooms are dressed for a big day.
6 Packages To Suit You
There is no pride lost in hunting for exceptional wedding deals; particularly with the average UK wedding averaging a total cost of over £27,000. Often, couples delay sealing their nuptials due to the soaring costs the celebrations can accumulate, which can be an upsetting fate. In an aim to make weddings less intimidating and more inclusive, Breadsall Priory often runs competitive wedding deals, quite like the current late availability package for 2018. With this, affianced couples can enjoy a 2018 wedding at the fraction of the cost.
