marriage - weddings in cheshire east - award

Cheshire’s East marriage service has been voted ‘best in the north west’ for the second year running.

The registration service wowed judges at the North West Wedding Awards held at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa, hosted by County Brides Magazine.

The service, which registers births, marriages and deaths and conducts marriage ceremonies, collected the award for best ceremony provider for its civil ceremonies.

It recognises the quality of service provided in the wide range of romantic, licensed locations across the borough.

A record 1,760 ceremonies were carried out between March 2018 and April 2019.

Including register office marriages, the service conducts more than 2,000 ceremonies a year at more than 80 approved venues, including some of the finest country hotels in the UK.

It helps to deliver around £32 million to the rural economy and almost 1,700 ceremonies are already scheduled for the forthcoming year.

Seventy per cent of couples who tie the knot in Cheshire East live outside the borough, suggesting that Cheshire East is becoming more and more popular for its registration service and the range of appealing venues.

Cllr Jill Rhodes, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for corporate services, said: “To win the same award twice in a row is a fantastic achievement for our team who work tirelessly to deliver a seamless service, helping to make the most important day in a couple’s life a day to remember.

“I want to congratulate our team on this award and thank them for all their hard work in helping to maintain the high standards of service we aim for in Cheshire East.”

Julie Hobson, a superintendent registrar, said: “Cheshire East has many splendid wedding venues and our team of registrars go that extra mile to deliver the perfect ceremony so that couples have a day to treasure all their lives.”
