Newly Engaged

Hello fellow bride to be's. Just wanted to introduce myself. Im Claire and my boyfriend finally popped the question after 4 years a few weeks ago. Very excited, dreamt of this since being a little girl. 

We go away in November so wont be setting a definate date until after then but already starting to plan as think April 2016. Been to a wedding fayre and wanted everything image.  Looking at colours, themes and most importantly the dress.

Struggling to find venues i like so does anyone have any recommendations for Oldham or Rochdale?

Would be lovely to hear off other brides planning their special day xx



Im struggling with liking venues though so does anyone have any recommendations for Oldham or Rochdale?

    Have you looked at saddleworth hotel very expensive but nice. Also look at the talking point in Oldham. Very different. It's a church on the outside and modern and gorgeous on the inside.

    Yeah I imagine it isn't cheap... I don't know Oldham way very well, I'm from Manchester but even then I'm getting married a mile from my home so hardly adventurous ha

    I work in manchester so been trying to find venues there to. So glad im not a last minute bride. Id be extremely stressed haha. I hope your plans are comibg together xx

  • Congratulations!

    I am from that neck of the woods, but don't live there now. the Birch Hotel in Heywood is nice (worked there years ago and it was nice then anyway). 

    Good luck x

    Thank you image. My mum mentioned there but think its a bit to far out for some guests. Ill keep looking but thank you anyway xx

    We had a look around Norton Grange yesterday and really liked it there so just waiting on an email from them. We just cant do any proper planning untill december as we have a big trip away so need to get that out of the way then all go image

    Oh glad your getting things sorted.  Great to get all the big things sorted then you can concentrate on all the other little but impirtant details. 

    Im sure itll be lovely xx
