How many people can tell the story of the time they said ‘I do’ inside the walls of a history-making Paralympic sports charity? Very few!
It all started in 2012 when a Maidenhead couple wanted to give back to their favourite local charity by getting married on site.
They arranged for the license, booked the date, invited their guests and with the help of our events team had a day to remember – with the groom ending the evening on stage as the front man of a popular local band!
Thanks to this couple’s generosity and ‘big idea’ to turn SportsAble into a wedding venue we are now one of the few totally wheelchair accessible and charity-focused wedding sites in the country. And not only that, we can host all of your romantic occasions – from engagement parties, to hen and stag dos, wedding and anniversary celebrations – all at the same venue!
What’s also great is: the venue can be yours for the entire day to personalise it as you wish. That’s the event spaces, the car park, the kitchen, the bar and the outside terrace, plus, the staff are here to assist your every need and to help liaise with suppliers on your behalf. In addition, the bride can have a personal dressing room and children can have their own play area complete with toys. And with everything on site your guests will be happy and you less stressed! That’s got to be a winner.
If you’re going down the more traditional route of a church wedding don’t forget that we can host your wedding breakfast and reception as a standalone event and, being a charity, we understand budgets and any event work – and with short lead times if necessary!
Just give us a call!
