Having recently received their civil wedding licence, Lutterworth Town Hall staged its first Civil Wedding Ceremony on Saturday 6th October.
As well as being a first for the Town Hall, the occasion also saw the teaming up the Town Hall with The Greyhound Coaching Inn to provide a day to remember for Victoria and James Goadby.
The Hansom Room on the first floor provided the setting for the ceremony before being transformed for the wedding breakfast. “Everyone had a terrific time, thank you, and we were blown away with how the Town Hall looked for the reception. The staff from The Greyhound were all amazing.” commented Victoria. Catering and organisation of the day was provided through Charlotte Miners at The Greyhound. The bride arrived to the sound of a string quartet and the couple were joined by 76 guests for the ceremony and wedding breakfast. As a pianist played throughout the meal, staff from The Greyhound served a delicious hot and cold buffet followed by homemade berry pavlova and plenty of champagne!
“We hope this will be the first of many weddings here at the Town Hall,” commented Stephen Walkley, Lutterworth Town Hall. “It was a huge success. The Hansom Room lends itself very well for the ceremony as well as the reception. What a fantastic start!”
