Holdsworth House ran another successful wedding open day last Sunday 8th July. Despite Andy Murray and the British Grand Prix giving us a run for our money in capturing the attention of the region's brides, we were thrilled to see so many of our registered guests turn out. Even the damp weather couldn't put you off coming to see our little gem of a hotel - thank you.
In fact we had over 140 guests through the doors and a Blossom of Brides - yes Calderdale's brides to be floated in like a flurry of confetti and we were excited to meet each one. We were pleased to see new faces as well as familiar ones so we could natter about wedding day plans with those who had already booked, and find available dates for those who hadn't.
Everyone who had pre-registered to attend our open day was entered into our free prize draw to win afternoon tea on the day, but regretfully the lucky lady who was chosen at random to win - and whose name was in print on the registration desk - didn't make it. As Jim Bowen used to say - "here's what you could have won".
Thanks to two local florists - Stems and Willow Garden - for providing such beeeeautiful arrangements, which everyone thought were simply stunning. Who'd have thought that a vase filled with strawberries would make such a wonderful centrepiece?
We're already looking forward to our more traditional wedding fayre - planned for November 4th 2012 with a selection of Yorkshire's top wedding suppliers. So bag yourself a free ticket now and we'll look forward to meeting up.
