Tyler and Josh

As most of you might know we had a competition last year where one lucky couple could win a weekend wedding at Calderwood Hall. The couple who won this extensive prize was Tyler and Josh Trenem. We hosted their dream wedding in the pristine countryside of Boston during July 2015. We assisted them with planning their big day, the layout of the hall and also the flow of the function as well as the menu options, just to name a few. It was an absolute  privilege to share in their joy and to be part of their “Once upon a time in Boston….and they live happily ever after.” The Trenem couple also shared their appreciation and experience at Calderwood Hall and now we would like to share their story with you as well!

We could not have asked for a better venue, Calderwood has the whole package! From the beautifully polished venue, the hospitality of the staff, the standard of the rooms and not to mention the food from CHC Catering which was absolutely outstanding - we still have guests raving about it! There were also many extras that were included like the games in the garden, which was a huge hit and kept everyone thoroughly entertained.

To have every member of your family (And I have a big family) and friends coming from around the country and abroad, together in one place for an entire weekend is a once in a life time experience! Having everyone together on the Friday night in the Pavilion for a pre wedding dinner really broke the ice and guests got to know each other. So by Saturday everyone was so relaxed, which is probably the reason I was the worlds least nervous bride and the wedding went off without a hitch! 

YES! Everything went off without a hitch! It was very well coordinated on the day and Calderwood was so flexible with what we wanted, nothing was ever a problem for them. Their Jardine Centre is just so beautifully and tastefully decorated and hiring additional décor was minimal.

The setting for photography was also something that really stood out to us because of how diverse the scenery was – from a country theme, a forrest, the lake, the Victorian style house, the beautifully pruned gardens, there were just so many options to choose from and sadly, the photographs are the only thing you have to remind you of your big day so it was important for us to pick a venue that caters for a variety and various creative/ styled shoots and here again Calderwood delivered in every aspect possible.

We are so grateful and can’t put a value on the prize that we have won. It was a once in a life time experience and that combination of people will never be together for a whole weekend again making it a priceless experience.
