Yorkshire venue The Coniston Hotel helps couple tie the knot in the nick of time

Yorkshire venue The Coniston Hotel helps couple tie the knot in the nick of time: Image 1 We wanted to share with you the story of Yorkshire couple Lorien Devonport and Anthony Martlew, who had been planning their wedding at The Coniston Hotel Country Estate & Spa on 21st March, 2020, for more than a year.

Drawing closer to the date, excitement turned to stress as uncertainty grew because of the coronavirus outbreak. On the eve of their wedding, the prime minister addressed the nation and explained that restaurants and pubs needed to close. This meant the venue could not host their celebration, and the guests who were travelling to be there had to return home.

The Coniston's senior wedding coordinator, Sharon Hurst, had a plan. "I could see how devastated the couple were that they couldn't celebrate with their friends and family," Sharon says. "But the worst thing was not becoming husband and wife." Sharon set about planning a pared-back day with just a registrar and a few key suppliers, which adhered to guidelines.

"It wasn't the day we planned for, but it was still our dream wedding," Lorien says. "We can't thank The Coniston enough for making it happen. The room was beautifully decorated and we even had some fizz to celebrate and photographs overlooking the beautiful estate."
