Shropshire County Hotel hosts a right royal occasion on April 29th

Hadley Park Champagne Royal Wedding

Hadley Park Champagne Royal Wedding

Shropshire County Hotel hosts a right royal wedding occasion on April 29th

Their names may not be William and Catherine, but Caroline and Trevor will nevertheless still be treated like royalty by management and staff at Hadley Park House Hotel, in Telford, when they tie the knot on Friday, April 29th.

As Shropshire Weddings go, this Shropshire hotel had originally made the generous offer to allow anyone named William and Catherine to hold their wedding here for free on April 29th.

No-one stepped forward, however, apart from Caroline Chadwick who, while admitting her name was not Catherine, asked the hotel if she and her very own Prince Charming Trevor Beddow might be allowed to book their reception if there were no takers for the hotel’s special offer.

So while most eyes will be on events taking place a couple of hundred miles away on April 29th at Westminster Abbey, all eyes in Hadley Park House Hotel will be trained on the function suite where Caroline and Trevor will be celebrating their day to remember.

Trevor, a National Sales manager for FP McCann and a well-known figure in local football and cricket circles, originates from Tibberton; while Newport born-and-bred Caroline works for the local Police Authority.

They have been a couple for 18 years and, as Caroline laughingly puts it “have been getting married for the last seven years, at least!”.  They also have three children: Joe (17), who will be the Best Man, and twin daughters Blayney & Emma (13), who will be Bridesmaids.

“Our original offer to host any couple called William and Catherine for free was made slightly tongue-in-cheek,” says Hadley Park House Hotel’s owner and manager, Mr Mark Lewis.  And while we would most certainly have honoured that offer, no-one came along to claim the ‘prize’.  But we are absolutely delighted that our ‘Regal Package’ will now be enjoyed to the full by Caroline and Trevor, and their guests”. Caroline, meanwhile, admits that friends and family have been waiting for this event for years.

She adds: “Being a Royalist, it has been made extra special by sharing this special day with HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton and I hope them as much happiness and Joy as we will have. “My birthday is on April 28th, so we wanted to book around that date. Mark and his team have been extremely helpful with the promise of making our day very wonderful and I am sure he will leave us with a feeling of Royalty. We have linked our day with a little bit of the Royal theme, with our tables being named after the Royal residences, and of course we are on Buckingham!” Continuing “I will be spending the morning at Hadley Park House Hotel, watching the Royal Wedding in London on the TV with my sister Glenda, our daughters and my hairdresser Zena while Mark & his team prepare my special day and provide us with bacon sandwiches and a glass of champagne to toast the Royal couple.”

The only thing that will be missing are the mugs and tea towels with Caroline and Trevor’s names and photographs on them!

Hadley Park Hotel, Telford, in Shropshire itself is a lovingly restored and sympathetically extended country house hotel with wonderful history, luxury accommodation, and a fine restaurant. Ideally suited to couples, or small groups, who are in search of a bolt-hole while exploring the world famous Ironbridge, or who want to find out more about how the picturesque village of Much Wenlock nearby claims to be the starting point of the Modern Olympics, The Hadley Park Hotel is now offering itself as an oasis in the heart of Telford.
