A new look conservatory at Chipping’s Gibbon Bridge Hotel was opened in style when 190 guests joined proprietor Janet Simpson and her team to celebrate with an informal banquet.

Those invited included couples who already have their weddings booked at the hotel, the workmen and key suppliers who have been a major force in achieving the transformation, and of course other friends, suppliers and producers who form part of the Gibbon Bridge family.

There was live entertainment from singer Kirsty Rogers, Naomi Holland and the consummate performer Steve Bayliss and the party finished off with dancing.

Janet Simpson’s vision has created a stylish contemporary room, filled with light and unique features; two hand-blown glass chandeliers, designer wallpaper and cast iron pillars with a history. The bi-folding doors create an open vista onto the terrace, gardens and surrounding fells, creating the perfect room with a view.
