Yesterday Didsbury House Hotel hosted the first ever Brides Up North Tweet Up wedding industry networking event with Wedding Ideas Magazine.  What an amazing, chilled and relaxed night it was, and in such beautiful surroundings!  Thank you so much to so many of you for turning out to support the event!  I am blown away. 

I am still coming down from my wedding blogger/sugar high (there were a lot of sweet treats to enjoy!), but will report back shortly with all the fabulous photographs from the evening care of the marvellous Jenny & Keith McAvoy Wedding Photographers and a special little movie from Love Gets Sweeter Wedding Films

.

Can you give Brides Up North an idea on price for your wedding packages?

.

Its very difficult to cost a wedding without going into individual requirements but to hire the hotel exclusively with all 27 bedrooms on a bed and breakfast basis starts from £5000.  We then allow the bride and groom to “sell” these rooms onto their guests for whatever price they choose. This money comes off your £5000 and from then on we tailor the catering requirements around your needs.

.

.

Tell us about your amazing food…

.

We have a wide range of menus to suit everybody’s tastes and are happy to adapt them to meet peoples needs.  We offer afternoon teas, canapés, sit down meals, BBQs, Hog roasts, buffets midnight snacks and the bowl food concept.
