They are all individual and different showing, we hope, that Manor Lodge can help you plan your wedding, your way.
Rebecca and Gareth
The day before Rebecca and Gareth’s wedding things were a little worrying. The couple accidentally locked themselves inside a friend’s house and it was looking like getting their chosen two venues ready for the wedding in time might be a tall order.
Fortunately things began to look up. Rebecca and Gareth managed to escape and it turns out setting up two venues wasn’t too bad at all. This was going to be a fantastic wedding.
Rebecca and Gareth chose Manor Lodge for their wedding ceremony. They wanted to show off their home city to their guests, so picked a picturesque setting for the ceremony, getting married in May this year in front of the our beautiful historic Turret House. The sun shone down on the wild flowers and apothecary garden which made for stunning photo opportunities and the bride and groom looked wonderful in ivory gown and dark red suit.
To make the day totally individual, the couple included acoustic versions of their favourite rock music into the ceremony. White and red roses in buttonholes and bouquets were a nod to Yorkshire and Lancashire roots, and rosemary linked the guests with our apothecary garden.
It was important to Rebecca and Gareth that as well as a beautiful historical setting for their wedding they also included Sheffield’s urban heart. Their guests were transported to the reception at The Showroom in a vintage bus, and once there enjoyed vegan food in celebration of the happy couple’s wedding day.
“Having never been to Manor Lodge before we started venue hunting, even we were surprised to find such a picturesque and green place so close to the City centre. The grounds are stunning and offer a wide variety of beautiful places for different photo opportunities. It was the perfect venue to show our guests the hidden gems Sheffield has to offer!”
We love seeing how our couple’s plan and use our venue for their special day and are really pleased we could help Rebecca and Gareth celebrate with all their family and friends.
