Jodie & David tied the knot at Samlesbury Hall in September 2020, when the Covid guidance at the time stated a maximum of 30 people could be present at the wedding. Jodie tells us their story:
“We looked at many wedding venues when we first got engaged, but nothing really suited us and our quirks. We decided to come to Samlesbury Hall just to look around after seeing an event online. As soon as we drove onto the grounds David said my eyes lit up, and we knew at that very moment that this is where we wanted our special day.
“We planned it for 2 years with the amazing wedding team at the Hall, we just wanted a day to remember which they absolutely understood and worked so closely with us to make sure that it went how we imagined. Then just four days before our wedding, lockdown was announced and we had a decision to make. Samlesbury Hall were so understanding and supported us through this time, they made it easier to handle every step of the way, and we decided to postpone our wedding to September.
“When this time came we found out that guidelines meant we could get married but with 30 guests; this decision wasn’t difficult for us because all that mattered was that the Hall was back open and we could finally get married. Our day was beautiful, small and intimate and it could not have been more perfect. We had more time with our guests because there were fewer of them and it wasn’t the overwhelming, whirlwind that we were expecting. We got to enjoy every little moment together with our family and friends and that was all we wanted.
“We arrived as a nervous couple with our family, ready to take a big step into our future, and we left with an even bigger family in the amazing staff at Samlesbury Hall. They will always hold a special place in our hearts.”
