Local venue offers couples free room hire to mark most romantic month of 2012

Online PR News – 21-January-2012 – – With Marriage Week, Valentine’s Day and an extra day (thanks to it being a leap year) all falling in February, it’s shaping up to be officially the most romantic month of the year and a Nottinghamshire based hotel is keen to extend their own gesture of romance to loved up couples to mark the occasion.

The Clumber Park Hotel and Spa, situated in the heart of Robin Hood country near Sherwood Forest, is offering free room hire (ranging from £400.00 to £1200.00) to any couple who books throughout the week of 19th to 26th February a wedding for 2012 or 2013. And that’s not all –they’re also hosting a Wedding Fayre and a Wedding Open Day during the same week to help them organise their big day!

Taking place on Sunday, 19th February between 10.30 am and 3.30pm, the Wedding Fayre will boast the best that bridal has to offer thanks to twenty-five exhibitors hailing from the world of stationery, catering, entertainment, jewellery and photography, to name but a few.

With companies such as Sheffield based venue decoration specialists Pretty Chairs, whose previous clients including Jamie Oliver and his Channel Four Ministry of Food series, and accomplished Bolsover based bespoke stationery company Designs By Daykin just two of the exhibitors in attendance, it’s shaping up to be the perfect one stop shop for couples looking to take the stress out of organising their big day.

“A wedding is so personal and I really love working closely with brides to help them realise their dream day - whether it’s through handcrafted stationery or extra special accessories like personalised post boxes and playful pick n mix stalls!” says Wendy Daykin, founder of Designs By Daykin.

“A wedding fayre can be the perfect place to have that initial face to face meeting and talk through exactly what they’ve got in mind. It’ll be my seventh fayre at the hotel and I’m really looking forward to meeting some more couples and helping them add those unique and magical finishing touches to their big day,” she continues.

Other exhibitors confirmed include Retford based Krush Floral Design and Derby based Cupcake Belle, handcrafters of delicious treats lovingly baked for any occasion. Kelly Barnett, founder of the cake company, is looking forward to attending.

“The wedding cake is such a big part of the day, as it’s captured on so many photos, so it’s important that couples are delivered one that they’re one hundred per cent happy with,” she explains.

“All of our cupcakes are lovingly baked, decorated by hand and made with locally produced or fair-trade produce where possible,” continues Kelly. “We also work closely with the couple to make sure that when it comes to that cake cutting moment, they know it’s going to one they’ll be happy seeing in a wedding album for the rest of their lives.”

Not only will couples have the chance to source all their wedding needs courtesy of the fayre but also a few days later on 26th February, between 11.00am and 3pm, they’ll have the opportunity to attend a Wedding Open Day at the hotel where they can view the venue as it would be on their big day with twinkle curtain, flowers, stationery and cake. Plus, they can also sneak a peek at the Bridal Suite, guest bedrooms and the New Leaf Spa.

“Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and attending wedding fayres and open days can sometimes really help couples to make important decisions about their big day and remove some of the stress,” explains Sarah Lamb, Wedding Co-ordinator at the Clumber Park Hotel and Spa.

“Budget can also be a huge factor and that’s why we’ve decided to waiver room hire for anyone who makes a booking during the week of our wedding events,” she continues. “Every penny counts when it comes to creating the perfect wedding and so hopefully between the fayre, open day and room hire fee removal, we can help some couples create the day of their dreams!”

Room hire from £400.00 to £1200.00 waivered for any wedding booked for 2012 & 2013 during the week of 19th – 26th February 2012 inclusive.
