Very special day at the Cooper Associates County Ground

The Cooper Associates County Ground was the venue for a very special event last week.

On Friday the venue played host to its first ever wedding after the Club acquired the necessary licence to be able to conduct marriages and civil partnerships.

The happy couple tied the knot in front of over 50 guests in our beautiful Long Room before a special drinks reception was held on the spectacular Thatchers Roof Terrace.

The traditional wedding breakfast then took place in the 1875 Club before more than 100 guests celebrated in to the night in the Stragglers.

Following this memorable event Somerset County Cricket Club’s Wedding Co-ordinator, Sophie Cridland said: “The whole day went really well and the rooms all looked fantastic. Your wedding day is one that you will remember for the rest of your life so it’s absolutely vital that we make sure everything is perfect for the bride and groom.

“We pride ourselves in being able to pull out all the stops to ensure that our customer’s needs are met from the planning stage all the way through to the big day itself. To have been able to play a part in such a special event means a great deal to all of our staff and I’m delighted that the happy couple and all their guests had such a great day.”

The bride and groom were delighted with the event and contacted Sophie the following day to say: “Just a quick message to thank you and your team for the best day of my life! It was beyond expectations in every way. We will remember it forever. Thank you so much.”
