The Roundhouse - Entrance

I was extremely excited when wedding season began and Sunita and Ricky’s wedding was upon us.

Knowing Sunita and her family – I didn’t expect anything less than glamorous but was utterly blown away after all the detail into every part of their wedding. The post about their wedding is coming at a later date.

However today I will be focusing on the perfect location they hired for their wedding reception – The Roundhouse Derby.

The Roundhouse, Derby, is a beautiful and magnificent series of truly iconic buildings that have a world-renowned status in history. As a wedding venue, The Roundhouse offers a spectacular backdrop, with an atmosphere as unique as the venue itself. The Roundhouse was built in 1839 and is the world’s oldest surviving railway turning shed. Following a £48 million renovation, it has been returned to its former glory with original features beautifully restored.

On Arrival

On arriving to The Roundhouse Derby – I was unsure of what to expect but first impressions definitely didn’t disappoint. We were welcomed with champagne and canapés which gave us a great chance to mingle. Also to catch up with those who had changed their outfits from the Gurdwara {I definitely changed into a more dressy sari!}. The welcome drinks were held in the library. When you hear library, you may think standard boring library. But I must emphasise how gorgeous it was. The wooden floors combined with the black large pillars and glass windows and doors truly brought an traditional and modern style together! {You can see what I mean behind me in the photo!}

The Hall

We were then allowed to enter the hall. I was walking and talking with Sunit’s grandma {such a babe – love her} chatting away saying how nice everything was that day and the festivities before hand. I reached the entrance and my actual words were “Oh my God” How amazing was the first impression? This was what we saw!

How gorgeous does it look? So elegant, glamorous and stunning. [Tweet “You know when you have done a wedding right when people are still talking about it for months afterwards “]

I know I wanted to write about this as everything was very spectacular! The food from Five Rivers was delicious, and the customer service was great. They wouldn’t let us be without a drink or if we needed anything, the waiters and waitresses went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect!

A quick mention to the DJ – Kudos music  was also amazing. A combination of bhangra, hindi and music in the charts was done so well. I must emphasise the dance off between the ladies and the guys was a definite highlight. So well done and enjoyable! And of course the ladies did win 😉
