Emma & Peter's Wedding Story
We visited a lot of different venues but when we saw the cricket ground we knew it was perfect for us. It was great to see it on TV for the world cup games in the run up to our wedding date!
We live in Warwickshire but wanted to get married in Nottingham as that is where my family is based. Though its not that far away we thought the distance might be a problem for organising things. Trent bridge were incredibly accommodating though, working around us for meetings and doing a lot over the phone and via email. I really can’t recommend them enough.
We got married in July 2019. We had to wait until cricket fixtures were announced in November before we could get a final date. The cricket ground let us limit it to two potential dates before then which meant we could start making most arrangements and it wasn’t a problem. All of the organisation was very simple and made very easy by them. We were able to do a menu tasting and get in to the room the day before to set up. They even did the final assembly of parts on the flower arrangement for us in the morning as we couldn’t do it the day before. Everyone working at the ground were very helpful and generally lovely from the wedding coordinator to the people working on the day and the security guards.
The ceremony was at St Giles Church and afterwards we all walked the short distance down the road to the cricket ground. Everyone was so excited to be there and it was amazing to see our names on the board. We had a drinks reception and canapés in the long room before moving to the Derek Randall suite for the meal and dancing. The meal was delicious and all dietary requirements were well catered for. The main problem we had was getting people on the dance floor as everyone wanted to sit in the stands in the sunshine and look at the ground. Once it got dark that was no longer a problem though. We had a relatively large wedding with 120 for the meal and about 150 for the evening and the venue could accommodate them all easily.
We had the most incredible day and I am so pleased we chose to get married at Trent Bridge. We even get season tickets next year and an anniversary dinner and I know it is a venue we will keep returning to for the rest of our lives.
