STYLISH brochures have been produced by Cheshire East Council to help couples in the planning of their wedding or civil partnership.

They contain advice on how to plan the perfect ceremony, plus listings of approved venues and wedding service providers.

Councillor Brian Silvester said: “This professional, detailed brochure is proof of just how much Cheshire East can offer couples who wish to hold their ceremony here.

"There is no doubt how important weddings and civil partnerships are to supporting the local hospitality industry and our economy.

“Since the change in legislation in December 2005, Cheshire East Council Registrars have conducted the ceremonies for 170 civil partnerships, but I would like to see many more.

"Cheshire East has unrivalled choice when it comes to venues which mean weddings can be tailor made to suit each couple’s needs."
