A CHET CENTRE WEDDING. This is a wonderful location for your special day. Hidden away behind the historic walls of the village, the 16th Century barn is a truly stunning venue. With attractive gardens and an equally beautifull courtyard.
Crosby Hall Educational Trust (CHET) is an educational (also corporate) centre set in a beautiful rural landscape of 120 acres. This little gem of a venue is located in Little Crosby a few miles North of Liverpool. It was created from the stables and farm buildings at Crosby Hall which has been the home of the Blundell family for many centuries. The Blundell family founded CHET more than 25 years ago. Crosby Hall itself, is also located within the grounds behind the courtyard and stabled area. The hall has been used in film and TV productions, mainly due to its authentic period country style and condition.
CHET Centre Wedding
Gill and George are a lovely couple who are both now from the larger neighbouring town of Crosby. They chose the venue because of it's locality and also its quaintness.
Gill was accompanied by three Bridesmaids, two Flower Girls and one Paige Boy. Gill arrived at the venue in a royal blue vintage car, arriving through the large pillared gates. The drive to the venue has a lovely cobbled driveway leading to the similarly styled cobbled courtyard. The Chet Centre Wedding venue was originally converted from a barn as and educational centre, and is not actually equipped as a wedding venue. The bar has to be imported from an outside caterer. The usual decor, chair covers, signage etc all has be installed. Vicky, the wedding organiser did a fantastic job and had everything organised for the day.
The ceremony at the Chet Centre Wedding , arrived and went without any problems. The flower girls spreading a few petals down the aisle also followed by Gill and the Bridesmaids to join George and Phil, his Best Man. Vow's made and rings exchanged and the celebrations began. As Gill and George still had their vintage car, what was to stop them going for a brief trip, equipped with Champagne and a smile.
Returned and ready to go, it was time for the speeches including a lengthy "screen filled presentation" from Phil. The Best Man, having known George for thirty years, highlighted George's sporting triumphs and failures to much amusement from the audience.
As the celebrations continued, a hog roast was nicely crisping on the spit in the courtyard. However, despite the exceptionally freezing cold February chills, the courtyard feast was used by most of the guests.
Continuing on from the feasting, the night followed with the first dance. Led by George and his march to the Z cars, aka Everton FC theme tune and Gill then accompanying her new husband to a little Ed Sheerhan.
Summarising, a fantastic day for all and hopefully a very warm welcome and honeymoon for the newlyweds in Playa Blanca on the sunny island of Lanzarote.
