Happily Ever After
With a new year stretching ahead and spring around the corner, wedding season will soon be upon us. South Ribble’s venue, Penwortham Golf Club, has thrown its doors wide open after the overwhelming success of its first wedding, with bookings being taken for 2019 and beyond, writes Victoria Bamber
Based in the heart of Penwortham and with a welcoming, stylish and unique atmosphere; Penwortham Golf Club is South Ribble’s newest wedding venue, offering a range of bespoke and affordable packages available to all.
Entirely customisable and with three venue sizes available to suit 20, 60 or 120 guests comfortably, the club’s first ceremony and reception went by without a hitch. Offering weekday and evening weddings, as well as traditional Saturday ceremonies and receptions, the club has been an established part of the community since 1908.
For golf fanatics Gill Jolleys and her husband, Pete Jolleys, there was no place better to celebrate their love for each other. As active members of the club, Gill and Pete – who met through golf – worked alongside staff to ensure their day was bespoke and beautiful. The pair cleverly incorporated elements of their hobby, including a golf-themed cake and table decorations, seamlessly into the design.
“Our day was everything we wanted, and more,” explained Gill. “It was perfect. Penwortham Golf Club means so much to both of us, it made absolute sense to celebrate our wedding here at the club. The staff couldn’t do enough for us – putting us at such ease and eliminating the stress, which was lovely. The club has such a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, my husband even played golf the morning of the wedding!”
To showcase the facilities on offer, Penwortham Golf Club will be hosting an Open Day on 3rd March from 11am-3pm, inviting people from Penwortham, Preston and beyond to see the venue for themselves and take note of the well-maintained grounds, convenient location and amenities on their doorstep.
The Open Day will also include input from the local community; with businesses from Penwortham invited to showcase their services at the club, offering potential wedding parties and their guests a selection of supplies all under one roof.
Club staff will also be available to answer any potential questions. Visitors can also drop in to the club during working hours or call ahead to make an appointment.
