A wedding is an extravagant and extremely joyful event but anyone who has ever planned a wedding can speak for the amount of chores and work that goes into making sure that it goes off without a hitch. Regardless of whether you are only inviting your closest family and friends or literally going to town, you will require all the help you can get. Amongst the list of things to do, one of the major components of planning a wedding is picking out a serene venue for your dream wedding. This is where a venue like Waters Edge goes beyond and becomes your trusted wedding partner making all the difference in creating that perfect memory.

Surrounded by tranquil water ways beautified by the exotic water lilies that bloom in the sunshine Waters Edge is a property ranked among the most sought after dream wedding destinations in the country.

Set away from the bustle of the city, Waters Edge is a five star luxury hotel that offers a number of venues for special events such as weddings varying in location and the number of guests the venues can accommodate. The Grand Ballroom, The Eagle, The View, Olu, Nelum, Manel, The Link and Albatross are all unique in views, seating capacity, choice of menus and décor options. 

Nelum, Olu and Manel are all located on the ground floor of the hotel and can be used as one big hall or separated into three different sections depending on the preference of the client. 

The hall is completely soundproof and also comes with its own lobby and seating area. The Link which is on the first floor is designed to make maximum use of the surroundings of the property with the glass panels providing a spectacular view all around.

Apart from the indoor venues, Waters Edge is also home to luscious green lawns that can be converted to an ideal setting for an outdoor wedding. Vintage gardens, a forest full of greenery, a lakefront pier wedding or any setting out of a fairytale can be recreated on the extensive lawns.

Apart from the wedding ceremony itself, these venues can also be used for pre and post wedding celebrations like bridal showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties, and home comings as well. With multiple seating options, an event of any size is not a problem for Waters Edge.Waters Edge is also unique in its capability of customising weddings to suit each couple’s requirements and budgets.

They will also suggest vendors for other wedding requirements such as flowers and décor, lights and sounds and wedding attire. Adding a unique touch of elegance that only Waters Edge can supply, couples can choose their getaway vehicle to be as exotic as a helicopter and sea-plane.

Waters Edge’s award-winning pastry chef Nalin Hewage is also world-renowned for his cakes and cake structures that are customised to suit colours and themes and even guest list sizes. His creations have often been the showpieces of weddings held at the hotel.

All of this and more will be on display at the Waters Edge stall at the ‘Wedding Show 2017’ which will be held at BMICH from 21-23 July. For more information and to meet with the banquets team please visit stall 44/48 in Hall B or call 0112 863863.
