With all the chocolate we’ve consumed over the weekend we’re all Easter-ed out and so are turning our thoughts to other bank holiday celebrations today, as we relive the wonderful Christmas wedding of Jo and David.
Following a festive engagement, today’s bride and groom decided December would be the perfect month in which to take their vows too. As a nod to the season, their romantic big day featured twinkling fairy lights, glittering baubles and shiny accessories, resulting in some super sparkly celebrations.
In case you’ve not heard, we will be hosting one of our fabulous Luxury Wedding Exhibitions at The Bowdon Rooms on Sunday 17th April, giving you the opportunity to see the fabulous venue for yourselves.

jo says: David proposed on Christmas morning 2014, it was a complete surprise. I had to follow clues around the house which led to different presents (including a jigsaw of the world and a Manchester City gnome!) and further clues until I found my engagement ring under the tree.
Our wedding was on 27th December 2015. It was 12 months following our engagement and we wanted a Christmas/winter wedding, so the date was perfect!
We were married at St Vincent’s RC Church in Altrincham. The wedding breakfast and reception was then held at The Bowdon Rooms. It was the only venue we looked at, and loved how it was one big room with a stage for the band. Also, the room could be decorated to suit whatever style we wanted.
When it came to the theme we were both very easy going – we just wanted a Christmas wedding and for the venue to be decorated for that time of year. To fit the season we chose a décor colour scheme of red and gold.

I adore everything about today’s wedding. The venue, which I happen to know rather well (The Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Wedding Exhibition reprises at The Bowdon Rooms on Sunday 3rd November – have YOU pre-registered yet?), the relaxed ethos, the bespoke gown, the blue velvet bridesmaids, and most of all, the spirit of the bride herself.
I’ve never met Hayley, but I have a feeling that I’d like her a lot. Take it away my dear…
