Musical Movie Filmed at the Gibbon Bridge

On an otherwise peaceful winter’s day, the Gibbon Bridge came alive with the sound of music as solo artists from across the region gathered to perform in our Orangery.

From harpists to saxophonists and singers to pianists - the string of talented artists showcased their harmonious skills for a brand new promotional film.

The Orangery - popular with couples marrying over the winter - was chosen for its contemporary and elegant design and superior acoustics.

Jamie Turner, Managing Director of Actual Music - a team of event planners and musicians - chose the Gibbon Bridge over every other high end wedding venue in the North West.

Jamie said: “I couldn’t think of anywhere better. Our artists perform at hotels all over the region, but with the outdoor Garden Bandstand and indoor Orangery - the hotel and grounds were aesthetically perfect.

“I’d like to thank Janet for kindly allowing us to film there.”

"Exceptionally Enjoyable"

The effort, care and love that has been lavished on Gibbon Bridge by you and your staff is plain for all to see, experience and enjoy.  However, what we particularly wanted to record is the exceptional quality of your staff.  Your team is, without doubt, the very best I have had the pleasure to meet and to be looked after by.  I have been a corporate member of the Hotel Catering & Institutional Management Association since 1973.  Over the years I have visited and worked with numberous hotels all over the UK.  The team at Gibbon Bridge are the best of all those that I have experienced.  First and foremost, being friendly, caring and professional and, by being well trained and, importantly, well led.  You are to be heartily congratulated.

"Sincere & Massive Thanks"

Please accept our sincere and massive thanks for all you did to make our wedding day so special.  Your hotel really is the perfect venue and we wouldn't have changed a thing; we and our guests enjoyed it thoroughly from start to finish.  Many thanks again.
