Ber­ties goes that ex­tra mile on your big day

Halifax Courier - - World Dock Pudding Championships - By Felic­ity Macna­mara

A popular Calderdale wed­ding venue has been an­nounced as a fi­nal­ist in the pres­ti­gious “I Do” wed­ding awards.

Ber­tie’s at La Ca­chette, Brook Street, El­land, has been short­listed in the York­shire wed­ding venue cat­e­gory of the na­tional awards, af­ter be­ing nom­i­nated by cou­ples who cel­e­brated their spe­cial day at the venue.

The awards are or­gan­ised by “I Do” wed­ding mag­a­zine, read by more than 30,000 brides and grooms ev­ery year and widely con­sid­ered as the “bride’s bi­ble” in the hunt for lo­cal wed­ding sup­pli­ers.

Direc­tor of Ber­tie’s, Jonathan Ni­chols, said: “We are very proud of this recog­ni­tion and would like to thank all the cou- ples who voted for us. “With so many great wed­ding venues across York­shire to get this far is a bril­liant achieve­ment - our fin­gers are still crossed for go­ing all the way though.”

Happy cou­ples flew the flag for the El­land venue by writ­ing tes­ti­mo­ni­als about how staff went the ex­tra mile to make their wed­ding day one to re­mem­ber. The win­ners will be an­nounced on Tues­day, May 19, at a glit­ter­ing awards cer­e­mony. The “I Do” wed­ding awards have been de­signed to recog­nise the ded­i­cated work of wed­ding sup­pli­ers up and down the coun­try. The awards cel­e­brate those who go the ex­tra mile to make a cou­ple’s dream day ex­cep­tional. Nom­i­nated along­side Ber­ties were Healds Hall Ho­tel, Li­versedge; The Leeds Club, Leeds; Hol­i­day Inn, Barns­ley; and Rogerthorpe Manor, Pon­te­fract. Ber­ties Ban­quet­ing Rooms was bought by La Ca­chette owner Jonathan Ni­chols in 2013. The busi­nesses - which are next door to one an­other - are now run side-by-side.
