Weddings at Quex
Prestige venue hosts the big day
Quex Park has held an exclusive showcase to unveil its new gazebo licensed for civil ceremonies and its refurbished bridal dressing area this summer – and is now regarded as one of the most beautiful and historic wedding venues anywhere in the UK.
The gazebo, designed by local architect Malcolm Rowlett, compliments the fine Victorian Ironwork on the verandas of Quex House and the Powell-Cotton Museum
Inside, The Roberts Room, a Regency style brides’ dressing room with its own bathroom has been refurbished to offer the bride and her attendants the ideal setting in which to prepare for the ceremony.
It also offers excellent photo opportunities for the bride and her attendants and has magnificent views of the manicured grounds.
“Work has been going on round the clock to ensure that the gazebo and Roberts Room were ready for the start of the outdoor wedding season,” said assistant estate manager, Angie Curwen.
“They look magnificent.”
Hand-crafted at Andy Thornton Architectural Antiques’s Rosemount workshops, this classic Victorian-style gazebo is reminiscent of the park bandstands of that period and it provide a unique focal point for a wedding ceremony.
Quex Park has seating for up to 120 in front of the gazebo that can then be catered for the wedding breakfast in the Hannah Dining Suite.
Drinks receptions and can be held in the gardens, museum or on the terrace. Up to 200 guests can be catered for in the evening with a finger buffet, barbecue or hog-roast.
Bell ringing in Quex Park’s historic Waterloo Tower, which is depicted in the Quex Park logo, makes for the perfect wedding day.
There is not a venue in the country that has anything to rival this structure which houses 12 bells. Standing over 130 feet in height it provides the perfect touch to the perfect wedding.
At the showcase, nearly 100 people were able to see the new opportunities and attractions available at what is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and historic wedding venues any where in the country.
Visitors were able to sample free food and wine from the wedding menus, and Quex’s dedicated wedding team were on hand to discuss individual requirements in detail and to book private viewings.
Visitors also had a chance to meet and talk to a selection of suppliers such as dress and cake makers, car hirers and formal wear outfitters.
