Heartwarming tales from Cottesmore Hotel, Spa & Golf Club

Couple embracing Credit: www.thewardettestudio.comWe love nothing more than hearing all about your big days, but you’re not the only ones with a story to tell as sometimes we get to hear about things from the perspective of the venue. With the Cottesmore Hotel, Spa & Golf Club having suffered a fire a few years back, its team has seen its fair share of adversity. So, when partner Louisa Porter and Julie Foote from the weddings and events team told me some heart-warming tales (or should I say tails) from their recent weddings, I knew I had to share...

The bride of a recent wedding at the venue was desperate to say her “I dos” al fresco. The weather had been looking very uncertain all morning, but despite this the team set up the ceremony on the lawn. Twenty minutes before it was due to start, the heavens opened. So, out into the elements the team rushed gathering flowers, lanterns and more, transferring it all into the Barn Room. Everything was beautifully in place indoors, with 60 guests comfortably seated when the sun came out! The bride text from her room that she wanted to go back outside, so the team dutifully leaped into action to reverse everything they’d just done, which included drying off all the chairs. The wedding was only 10 minutes late and with perfect weather for the vows. Julie remembers, “Many of the guests were Scottish and some were farmers, they’d all insisted that the weather would be fine for the ceremony. I should have listened to them!” It just goes to show though that the team at Cottesmore will go to any length to make sure their couples are happy. 

At another wedding, resident furry friend, cat Oscar, decided he’d make a guest appearance and walked across the aisle on the lawn during the couple’s vows, later joining them on the dancefloor. Louisa says, “He ends up in a lot of our reviews. I think he genuinely believes he’s human!”
