ne vital element of any wedding is making sure the bride or groom has a ‘last night of freedom’ to remember. The responsibility for organising such nights – or more likely, weekends – usually falls to the best man or head bridesmaid, but more and more people are turning to the experts for help in getting everything just right. The Event Station has perfected the art of partying. Its extensive range of hen and stag packages offer a variety of activities, ensuring your pre-wedding send-off will be one to remember. Whether you want a luxury or alternative break, are happy to stay local or are itching to go abroad, the options are numerous, and all have been well tested over the years! Boating in Barcelona, partying in Palma or lounging in Lisbon – the Estate Station team have been there and done that. All you have to worry about is the hen or stag’s costume.

Home-based fun

The Event Station is based at Carden Park Hotel near Chester, which boasts a massive list of adrenaline-filled activities perfect for any hen or stag do. Surrounded by 1,000 acres, the company hosts some of the best quad biking, off-roading and segwaying activities in the north-west. And with the beautiful Roman city of Chester on the hotel’s doorstep, the team can also escort you to some of the finest hotspots.

No matter how much we pray for good weather on our wedding day, it’s always worth taking the great British weather into account

T

here’s no such thing as a guaranteed sunny day in the UK. But British firms have become experts at keeping our erratic climate from getting in the way, none more so than those involved in the wedding industry. Hiring a marquee is a relatively simple process and often one that fits the bill. In many cases, your chosen venue will have their own available if the weather is looking suspect, but booking your own event tent is also a great way to get exactly what you want from your big day. Bringing your own building with you allows you to consider spots that would otherwise be ruled out, such as

your own garden or farmland. There are so many shapes and colours available, the marquee can also reflect the style and look you want for the day. Powys-based Top Cat Big Tops offers a huge range of structures of all shapes and sizes. So many colours are available, it’s worth taking a look at what’s on offer before you choose your wedding’s colour scheme as you may be inspired to embrace a new look! The company’s marquees have rocked up at festivals and important events, so they’ll bring a bit of status to your big day. You can browse the range at www. topcatbigtops.co.uk.
