Congratulations to all those who got engaged over Christmas and New Year!

January 2016

Well, it’s been a pretty busy few weeks here at Buckatree Hall Hotel – we’ve had Christmas parties, Christmas dinners and New Year parties too.

We hope you’ve had a good few weeks as well – maybe something very exciting has happened to you?

It’s a popular time of year for someone to pop not only the champagne but also the question too – so if you’ve got engaged, congratulations!

I’m Wayne Jenson, General Manager at Buckatree Hall Hotel, and I’d like to extend my congratulations to everyone who has got engaged over the Christmas and New Year period.

And great news – you’re just in time for our new, revamped wedding packages.

We want to see the biggest and best ideas for weddings you have.

It could be an outrageous theme, a never-before seen prop or just something new we’ve not seen here at Buckatree Hall before. Our main aim this year is to let our couples enjoy just what they want and do everything we can to get it for them – the only limit is your imagination.

We’re setting up a new flagpole and will begin creating personalised flags, we’ve been looking into releasing butterflies or balloons on the wedding day – did you know there is a company which will provide you with caterpillars which will hatch into a butterfly at exactly the right time!

We have seen more and more people decide on a themed wedding or ask us what it is we’re able to do for them – the answer is anything!

The only limit on what we can provide for a couple, other than their budget, is their imagination.

Our wedding event organisers Emma and Donna are looking forward to what is to come.

Find out if we can cater for your needs and find out more about the payment plans we offer by speaking to staff at an upcoming wedding event.

Our staff will have a table at the Telford Shopping Centre wedding fayre from January 28 to 31, the hotel will host an open evening on February 2, staff will man a stall at the wedding fayre at Engenuity on February 28, will host a full wedding fayre on March 13 and another open evening on May 3.

Getting married? We have a new venue and gave away a free wedding!

October 2015

Weddings are an excellent occasion and we have worked hard to boost the experience of couples getting married here at The Buckatree Hall Hotel.

I’m General Manager Wayne Jenson and I’m pleased to say we’ve introduced a new venue and gave away a wedding!

The competition to win a wedding was a way of celebrating when Telford & Wrekin Council approved a license for our new pagoda in the landscaped grounds – and now couples are enjoying it.

Victoria and Guy Savage, of Wellington, were one of the first couples to get married in the pagoda and they said it was an absolute dream.
They chose our hotel because of the 
view, beautiful setting and the fact they are quite outdoorsy people who walk and camp a lot.

It was raining on the morning of the wedding so we rang to ask if they wanted to bring the ceremony indoors and we could arrange everything – but they stuck with it and rightly so, it turned out to be beautiful and very romantic! 

We wanted to introduce the pagoda as a licensed venue because we want to give as much choice as possible to couples, this is completely different to the Lakeside Restaurant and other functions rooms we have recently improved.

Then, as if that wasn’t enough fun, I got to pick the name out of the hat for the couple who won a wedding here.

It was Adam Pierce, 25 of Hollinswood, and Laura Beech, 22, of Woodside.
I rang Adam to tell him and he was thrilled, but about half an hour later I got a call back asking me to confirm it – he’d told Laura and she didn’t believe him so I had to confirm it in person with her too!

The couple, who got engaged this year and had been planning to save for two years before arranging the ceremony, will enjoy a wedding worth £5,000 in November next year.

It turns out the Buckatree was somewhere they wanted to get married anyway because they’ve stayed here before and really liked it, we’re thrilled for them.

Now another wedding to look forward to – I wonder if they’ll brave the outdoor pagoda in November….
