Choosing a venue for your wedding day is one of the biggest decisions you will make in the planning process. We spoke to Suzanne and Robert Walsh to find out why they chose The Villa at North End for their big day

When did you get married?
29th December 2015

How did you meet?
At High School.

Tell us how Rob proposed.
It was on a surprise trip to New York and he popped the question on Central Park bridge.

What made you choose such a unique venue as The Villa at North End?
Preston North End is a shared love for both of our families and seemed a perfect setting for us to celebrate together and become one family.

What colour scheme did you go for and why?
We chose navy blue. It worked really well with the room and had a great Christmassy feel. Perfect for a December wedding. Plus all the bridesmaids looked incredible in navy.

How many guests did you have attending?
120 during the day, 180 in the evening.

What menu did you choose?
Soup to start, followed by a traditional chicken dinner with sticky toffee pudding to finish. The guests rated the food really highly!

What stood out the most from the venue for you?
The room is a great layout and the use of the Guild Lounge both before the wedding breakfast and evening celebration was a great addition.

Would you recommend The Villa at North End to other couples searching for a venue?
One hundred per cent, we definitely would! The staff are great and the venue really is perfect for anyone wanting an affordable wedding with more than 100 guests without comprising on quality. The food was great, the layout is perfect and the staff are very willing to help with any special requests you have for the day.

Any useful tips for brides and grooms when choosing a venue?
Make sure you have a big, central dancefloor! North End’s dancefloor is perfect and the lights above are a great addition.

How did The Villa fulfil your wedding wishes?
Our mentality for the wedding was that we wanted all our friends and family to share our special day with us. We wanted to throw a huge party to thank them all for getting us through the past 12 years together. The Villa at North End allowed us the chance to have an amazing day with everyone we love, without having to worry too much about how much it was costing us. They have different packages that are fair and helpful with providing the right options to make your day special.
