A first for Bodlondeb
The grade-II listed Bodlondeb civic offices in Conwy hosted their first marriage ceremony last weekend (17/11/18)
Local couple Joanne Conway and Nicholas Gardener were the first to tie the knot at the venue which became licensed to hold marriages, civil ceremonies and private events earlier this year.
“We were thrilled to be the first couple to be married at this beautiful venue with amazing views for our photographs,” said Joanne.
The 140 year old building with its wide oak staircase, panelled doors, Gothic fireplace, and original marble floor provided an ideal location for the nuptials. The stunning interior was one of the main reasons for the couple choosing the venue to provide an atmospheric autumn wedding.
The use of Bodlondeb as a wedding venue is intended to raise income for the Council and provide opportunities for local suppliers and businesses to benefit from functions held there. Bodlondeb can accommodate a variety of different packages for receptions and organisers will identify opportunities for hotels, restaurants, florists, bars and other wedding and function-related services in the area to provide services for events.
Cllr Anne McCaffrey, Cabinet Member for Law, Democracy and Modernisation, said: "We registered Bodlondeb for weddings to help boost the economy of Conwy and for local suppliers to benefit. Bodlondeb is a lovely location and can now provide the right environment for a memorable wedding."
