AN exclusive wedding venue – and former home of Gary Barlow – in Cuddington has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Guides for Brides Customer Service Awards.

Nestled in more than 100 acres of idyllic Cheshire countryside, Delamere Manor will now go head to head with elite wedding venues across the UK.

Judged by a prestigious panel of industry experts, the winners of the awards will be announced at a black tie event on March 9 at Oxford Town Hall, while raising funds for Guides for Brides’ charity partners, VOW for Girls.  

The former residence of the Wilbraham family and more recently the Take That musician and songwriter, Delamere Manor features a stunning manor house, a beautiful six-acre lake and is even home to its very own nightclub for guests' exclusive use.

It offers four licensed and flexible spaces for outdoor wedding ceremonies and a fifth option within its stunning star-lit courtyard which features a fully retractable roof.

Michelle Stubbs, founder and owner of Delamere Manor said: "We are thrilled to be a finalist in the Guide for Brides Customer Service Awards.

"The whole team works so hard to deliver a dream wedding day for all of our couples and I’m so incredibly proud of everyone and the high level of service they continue to deliver, especially during these challenging times.

"They continue to exceed both mine and our couples’ expectations."

Alison Hargreaves, founder of Guides for Brides said: "The last two years have demonstrated the importance of booking wedding suppliers and a venue that they can trust and will genuinely have their best interests at heart."
