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.”

You can see the first of the musicians filmed here, harpist Elinor Nicholson:


Thank you so much for helping us to create the perfect wedding day - the gardens were beautiful, the food was fantastic and the service was exceptional!  We couldn't have asked for a better team to help our day go off without a hitch.

"Wedding Venue"

We stayed at this hotel for two nights to celebrate our friends wedding. The room was magnificent! On two floors with a lounge and bathroom on the ground floor and a massive bedroom with a super king size 4 poster bed upstairs. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous with a water feature, a pergola for the ceremony, and a little river running at the bottom. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Janet Simpson the owner must be the hardest working lady in the world, she gets stuck in and helps make the lovely breakfasts. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. This is the place to get married, if you want to do it properly!
