Derbyshire Venues & Accommodation For Every Occasion

A Wedding fit for the WHOLE weekend!


Knockerdown was bubbling with excitement when the girlfriends of Rebecca Cameron arrived on Friday 5th September.


They were all set for a night of Spa treatments and pampering - along with some good girl time gossip and giggles!


But first we all decorated the site ready for the weekend wedding to begin the following day.


Knockerdown Cottages looked beautiful - The Brackendale Room was finally ready for a stunning ceremony fit for Rebecca Cameron & Thomas Boone. 


The weekend guests filtered through the courtyard & admired their luxury cottages and a few arrival drinks together, until the whole party was settled for the weekend and ready for their first treat...


Spa Night of Pampering for the ladies and Pub Pints of Dutch Courage for the gents at our neighbouring pub Knockerdown Inn.

Later that night everybody gathered together for an event filled night of family and friends from near and far, it was great to see the party catching up and sharing stories & laughing at memories once made - as you can imagine... it was a late one!


And the late one contributed to a few very sore heads the following morning! A sign of a great night! 


Well planned by the 'soon to be bride and groom' that the Ceremony wasn't until the following afternoon, giving our guests a chance to rest and relax in their luxury rooms and lounge in their dining areas.


Some early risers decided to treat themselves to a swim in our pool while others still on a high from the previous night were competing in our games room. 

Of course the Bride was on top form and ready for a morning of more pampering in the spa with hair and make up artists fussing around her and treating her like the princess she deserved to be. 


The Ceremony was held at 3.30pm in the Brackendale room, followed by a chilled out drinks reception in the courtyard and photographs in the gardens.


All the Knockerdown staff had a quick dash to turn the ceremony room around in time for the reception where Glorious Catering hosted a huge hog roast. 


In the evening the party continued with an Extension Marquee erected to the Brackendale Room - a centre piece of a fabulous cheese layered wedding cake stood proud & a choose your own oven pizza cooked to order by Glorious Catering and the evening entertainment Photo Booth Flashbak!

There were plenty of grimacing photos, far out fancy dress poses & fabulous friends popping in and out the booth all night for a glimpse and lots of laughs at their printed photos whilst a DJ manned the decks throughout the night keeping the dance floor alive and the drinks were flowing!


After another round of sore heads the following Sunday morning but the the guests were still enjoying the fun & took to the back meadows for team games with adult inflatables to add to the fun while the Knockerdown Staff cleared up the site fit for the next wedding to arrive.


Knockerdown Cottages certainly became its own little village full of friendly faces, neighbours & close community - everybody had a wonderful time in a perfect location.

The newly wed Mr & Mrs Boone left with a smile of their faces as their guests waved them off as they looked forward to their honeymoon.
