Getting married in chance! So we thought!
We feel extremely lucky to have been able to say ‘I Do’ this year and what a fabulous day it was.

Our wedding at The Bridge was the most perfect day! Everything from staying the night before, to the morning after was just amazing. So much so we’d love to do it all again, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Both myself & my husband are big foodies, so making sure we had decent food, was a big must & oh was just incredible! We celebrated with our closet family & friends, eating the most delicious food & drinking fabulous wine.

We can’t thank Megan, Holly, Gareth & their team enough. Especially when we brought our wedding forward two weeks, with only 5 days notice due to the ever-changing rules and restrictions we’ve all had to live with this year.

Every single person at our wedding felt the over whelming amount of friendliness that The Bridge staff offer, no ask, was too much trouble.

The Bridge will now & always be a very special place to us & we can’t wait to be able to see everyone again soon.

Love & Hugs
