 Wannabe brides and grooms were treated to a day of pampering at the new wedding facilities that have been created at the award Winning Punch Bowl Country Inn & Wedding Gardens just outside Bridgnorth, which has just undergone extensive improvements to its wedding facilities with the creation of a new dual lake, ornamental bridge, gardens and patio – with new 7 meter patio doors created in Bridgnorth.

The lucky couples entered a competition run exclusively on the Punch Bowl Inn Facebook page which enjoys over 2500 fans – newly engaged couples entered the competition by stating why they would like their wedding at the new Punch Bowl Wedding venue. The owners

were overwhelmed with the response. Owner Adam Giles commented “We often run exclusive competitions on our Facebook page for our AGA carvery and our tribute nights so we thought we would try a wedding competition to help launch our new facilities, and we were overwhelmed with the response. Each couple was to receive a full wedding dress and suit fitting, make up make over on the day, photo shoot by a professional photographer to keep and wedding flowers. Over 3000 people shared and commented on the post and we had 24 couples enter from all over the region but we had to select only two, which was tough. Wedding co-ordinator Charlotte Anslow commented ” The couples we chose were delighted and today has been amazing – it was all quite emotional. The brides looks amazing and the ‘grooms’ looked like film stars. We photographed them by our new lake on on our wedding bridge, as well as our new patio that was only finished yesterday!”

Nick Howard & Sarah-Jane Lowde from Wolverhampton who were one of the winning couples commented “We had heard of the Punch Bowl and their new wedding facilities, but had never been, so when we saw the post on Facebook and the photos of the lake it looked stunning so we thought we would enter. we were amazed to win but then when we saw what they were offering for brides we couldn’t believe the facilities – we were so impressed we are seriously thinking of booking our wedding here in 2017 – wedding co-ordinator Charlotte and team were lovely today, we will certainly be back”

Kate Tatton with her partner Paul Gough from Market Drayton were also delighted “What an amazing day” commented Kate “I was amazed at how they had transformed the Punch Bowl Inn to such an amazing wedding venue – My friends had been and mentioned how great the food was but I never realised it was such a fabulous wedding venue – what a day – I felt like a princess!”

The new wedding suite and facilities have been a long time in the planning. Adam has invested over £150,000 on the upgrades which includes fully opening patio doors that have been specially created by The Real Bridgnorth Window Company “the most unique aspect of the punch bowl is the stunning views of the Shropshire countryside so we have now removed the 7 meters of wall in our function suite and installed these ‘Origin bi- fold doors’, which are the largest that the Bridgnorth company have ever created and complete our 150 seater wedding suite – we think it’s important to support local suppliers and businesses from our menus to our builders – our guests can’t believe the views – it’s the perfect backdrop to a Shropshire Wedding”

The facilities will be generating a further 15 local full and part time jobs in the coming months and will help local businesses who offer accommodation and wedding services. The facilities will be fully launched for weddings including exclusive use of the gardens in Spring 2016 – “it’s been over 10 years in the planning since we bought the Punch Bowl and at last we can boast the most up to date wedding facilities in the region – we would like to thank everyone for all there support today and the brigades and grooms for their patience”

Thank you to our patient and wonderful brides and their VERY patient partners: Kate Tatton and Paul Gough, and Nick Howard & Sarah-Jane Lowde, plus our supporters on this special wedding day:
