Local Hotel Adds Fizz to 500th Wedding

The Old Rose and Crown hotel in the Lickey Hills looks set to celebrate its 500th wedding this year

Local Hotel Adds Fizz to 500th Wedding

A hotel based in the Lickey Hills is proving that tying the knot is still as popular as ever in the West Midlands as it looks set to celebrate its 500th wedding this year. 


From around 2009, after 40 years of steady decline, the marriage rates across the UK have started to increase and are expected to continue the upward trend over the coming years. Recent changes in the law, coupled with the ability for venues to hold civil ceremonies, have helped buck the downward slide, with many hotels and venues benefiting from this.

One such hotel, the Old Rose and Crown Hotel, based at the foot of the stunning Lickey Hills in the West Midlands, has also seen its total number of bookings rise significantly over the past couple of years. They’ve risen so much that they are now almost at the 500 mark. Hotel owner Andrew Hodges said: ‘With our Wedding Open Day planned on Saturday 4th February and the wedding season not yet underway we certainly expect the bookings to top this figure within the next month’.

To celebrate this landmark number the hotel will be marking the occasion with something special for the bride or groom to be who books the 500th wedding at the Old Rose and Crown Hotel. They will be donating £500 to a charity of the couple’s choice and are also offering a drinks package at their wedding. Andrew continued: ‘We wanted to do something to celebrate the occasion and asked the staff what they thought. They were all aware of the important work charities do and one or two knew someone who had been supported by one, so a donation seemed a natural choice.’

At the current rate of bookings, anyone who is looking to book their wedding or civil partnership with the Old Rose and Crown over the next month could be the magic 500th and help a charity receive £500, as well as give their wedding that extra fizz.
