23 Nov Would You Have Your Wedding in a Bowling Alley?
You only need to watch popular television show Don’t Tell the Bride to know that there are lots of couples out there who like to have their weddings in interesting venues but one pair of newlyweds in Manchester – who no doubt made use of Manchester wedding video services – has seemingly outdone them all and got hitched at a bowling alley. According to the Manchester Evening News, Rob Barr and Victoria Storey were the first couple ever to get married at All Star Lanes in the Great Northern Warehouse on Deansgate, sitting down to a feast of pulled pork, macaroni cheese and buffalo chicken wings as their wedding breakfast. They were even given a personalised bowling ball at the end of the day to commemorate the event. “Getting married on a bowling alley is something different. It is a day people won’t forget. I did wear my high heels on the bowling alley during the ceremony but obviously I put on lane shoes for the bowling after the ceremony,” Victoria told the newspaper. If you like the idea of an odd venue but don’t think a bowling alley quite cuts the mustard, you might find a tree house does the trick. The Lodge in Scotland is home to a gorgeous Tree House overlooking Loch Goil that is licensed for weddings – and would be perfect for an intimate ceremony as there is room for up to 24 guests. There’s also a Victorian dining room if you’ve got a maximum of 50 guests.
