Flooding at Avenham Park, seen on parks all around Preston over the last few days, saw the venue completely surrounded by water.

Kat, 24, said: “I can’t believe the state of the flooding, it’s the place where I spent the happiest day of my life, and to see it flooded is heartbreaking.”

The one inch of water that got inside the Pavilion caused minimal damage and the caf├ę is currently being cleaned to open tomorrow (December 28).

Dan, 22, said:┬á“We chose the Avenham Park Pavilion for our wedding reception because of the impressive scenery and atmosphere.

“To see the reasons why we chose the venue ruined, even only temporarily, is a sight nobody would like to see happen.

“We know another couple who are due to use the venue for their wedding later next year. However I expect everything will be sorted by then.”

Bookings at the venue will all go ahead as planned.
