Football stadiums can provide so much more than just the action on the pitch and when CGC Event Caterers won the contract to provide the catering at Edgeley Park they took on a venue with a busy non-matchday calendar of conferences, meetings, weddings and events.
In early 2014 we decided that it was time for a spruce up of the Cheshire Conference and Events branding, out with the old and in with the new as they say! We wanted to ensure that our image was in line with the high level of personal service that our team here at Edgeley Park consistently delivers. We started with a fresh new logo…
Next came a venue photo shoot and it was all hands to the pump bright and early on Monday 31st March. Our office manager, Julie Holland, did a fantastic job of coordinating everything (with military precision I might add) and we were lucky enough to draft in the help of some wonderful local suppliers, including many friends of the club and even family members of certain members of our team!
The first half of the day was spent dressing the venue and our thanks go out to Ollie Bollie Balloons and Entertainment Today who between them provided fabulous chair covers & sashes, beautiful table centre pieces & candelabra. The room decorations were stunning and we would highly recommend these local suppliers to any event organisers looking for that wow factor for their own event.
A quick stop for lunch before our models arrive to get ready. This beautiful wedding gown came to us courtesy of Wedding Belles Bridal Studio in Stockport and our groom’s tails were from the Manchester and Warrington stores of Groom Hire. Both offer a very personal service to brides and grooms to make sure they get exactly what they want for their big day, everyone wants to look their best after all!
The bride’s incredible veil and stunning bouquet came from Gresty’s Florist, Gresty’s have been providing expertly designed flower arrangements to customers in Cheshire for over 70 years and their beautiful bouquet finished our bride’s outfit perfectly. Every newlywed couple needs a wedding car and our thanks go to Daventry Wedding Cars (0161 718 5429) who even matched our wedding colour scheme!
Once we were set up and ready the hard work really began with the photographic expertise of Mike Petch at M Photographic. We specified the brief and Mike understood exactly what we were after along with suggesting different shots to capture the venue at its very best.
We now have a wonderful selection of images to use on our new website and in our new brochures and we hope you all like them as much as we do.
Huge thanks again to everyone who was involved, from all the local suppliers to every member of the team here at Edgeley Park.
