Arley Hall :-
Historic splendour and magical gardens are not the only reason Arley Hall is one of the finest venues in Cheshire for civil marriage ceremonies and wedding receptions. The main attraction is that the Hall is exclusively yours for your special day!
Bridal parties are invited to arrive in the morning to oversee the final preparations and to relax in the private bridal suite. Civil marriage ceremonies tend to take place either in the Drawing Room (100 capacity) or the Front Hall (80), with the bride making a dramatic entrance down the main staircase. Once the vows are exchanged, the library offers intimate place and a magnificent backdrop for the signing of the register.
On a fine day, guests can enjoy a champagne reception in the gardens and the bride and groom can be photographed against the backdrop of the herbaceous border, Ilex avenue and walled garden. Alternatively, the four principal rooms in the house offer a series of charming backdrops and each contribute to the ambiance of the reception.
The wedding breakfast tends to take place in the oak panelled Gallery (100 capacity), and then after dinner, guests are invited to the Tudor Barn (125 capacity) for the evening dance party.
GARTER AND BRIDAL BOUQUET TOSS
In parts of Europe during the 14th contrary, having a piece of the bride's clothing was thought to bring good luck. Guests would literally destroy the brides dress by ripping off pieces of fabric. In order to prevent this, brides began throwing various items to the guests - the garter belt being one of the items.In order to avoid this problem, it became customary in the 14th century for the bride to toss her garter to the men. Sometimes the men would get drunk, become impatient, and try to remove the garter ahead of time. Therefore, the custom evolved for the groom to remove and toss the garter. With that change the bride started to toss the bridal bouquet to the unwed girls of marriageable age. Tradition says that whoever catches the bouquet shall be the next to marry. She keeps the bouquet to ensure this destiny.
