Gemma and Garry Watson, who said their ‘I dos’ at the four-star hotel near Longhorsley, were one of more than 200 couples who took part in the nationwide search to celebrate those who tied the knot at a Macdonald Hotels and Resorts venue over the last 50 years.

After submitting photographs from their wedding, they were selected at random and will be rewarded with a luxurious overnight stay in the wedding suite – complete with champagne on arrival and a three-course dinner.

Gemma said: “We are overjoyed at being able to return to the Macdonald Linden Hall Golf and Country Club, as it holds such a special place in our heart.

“My husband visited when he was a child and after seeing it for myself, it was a clear first-choice when it came to choosing our wedding venue.

“It’s such a beautiful hotel with gorgeous surroundings.

“The experience was fantastic. Everything was on time and they did a magnificent job of catering for my son, who has a disability.”

Daniel Courtney, the venue’s general manager, said; “So many people start their journey as husband and wife at our hotel and it’s wonderful to welcome back Mr and Mrs Watson for a trip down memory lane.

“It means a lot to myself and the hotel team that we are able to play such an important part in creating these special memories, which will last a lifetime.”
