History, Football and Afternoon tea – Francesca and James’ perfect day

Are you looking for a venue for your big day? In order to help you decide whether Manor Lodge might be for you, we are putting together some real life stories of couples who have celebrated their wedding with us. They are all individual and different showing, we hope, that Manor Lodge can help you plan your wedding, your way.


Francesca and James

Francesca and James opted for their beautiful intimate wedding ceremony to take place in the white room on the second floor of the Turret House at Manor Lodge, adding another important special event to the history of this fantastic Tudor building. A bright September day made for stunning wedding photographs of the bride and groom amidst the wildflowers, taken by the father of the bride.

The ceremony was followed by drinks in the apothecary garden, with the guests relaxing and taking in the views of Sheffield from the deck chairs in the grounds. All of this and more provided great photographs for the wedding album.

So Manor Lodge added historical beauty to their wedding day, but Francesca and James also wanted the celebration to include another important aspect – their love of football. On the way to the wedding reception they stopped off at Bramall Lane for a wholly different set of photos, although James may be tempted to change the red to blue…

The reception was again a personalised affair, taking place in a marquee in Francesca’s parent’s back garden. Everything was personalised, handmade or hand picked – from the crockery, to the chocolate favours and table decorations. The cake was lovingly made and decorated by Francesca’s auntie and each guest even received a lottery ticket, so maybe it wasn’t just the happy couple who left feeling like millionaires.

The most important thing for us here at Manor Lodge is that you enjoy your special day and don’t worry about a thing. We’ll leave the last word to Francesca:

We felt that we had found a unique venue even though it is literally on our doorstep…(Our guests) all commented on how special and intimate the day was.”

We can’t ask for better feedback than that!

Francesca and James’ special day was a unique personal family affair. Visit our wedding page to find out more about how Manor Lodge can be the perfect wedding venue for you.
