The idea might sound crazy to most, but luckily for Alun Pomfrett his work place happens to be a three star hotel.

As Food and Beverage Manager of The Link in Loughborough, Alun knew that the venue’s brand new wedding package was too good to miss, instantly choosing it for his own big day.

Alun has been Food and Beverage Manager at The Link hotel for a year but has worked at other venues owned by leading conference and hospitality brand imago, for 14 years. Alun tied the knot with his wife Natalie on 12th February 2012 at an intimate gathering of just 32 friends and family.

The Pomfrett family jumped to take advantage of the new wedding package which starts at just £2,500 for up to 50 guests in the daytime and 100 guests in the evening. Unbelievably, the price even includes a buffet and evening disco.

Alun said; “For us, the perfect day meant spending time with loved ones in a relaxed and sophisticated setting without having to worry about anything going wrong. As Food and Beverage Manager of The Link, I had the added benefit of knowing that the staff are always attentive and that the food is fantastic.

“We were able to hand-pick our own menu options for the wedding breakfast so that everyone’s requirements were met; something which comes as standard with the new wedding package. These added touches were important to me and my wife and we know they will be to our customers as well. I’m looking forward to making sure many more lucky couples get the same star treatment in 2012!”

The Link wedding package offers a range of options, including an additional deal for parties of up to 200 guests. The launch of the wedding package follows a number of milestones for the venue which achieved a three star status in 2011 from VisitBritain.  imago acquired The Link in 2010, investing £1.5 million in its refurbishment.
