Emma & Billy Tie the Knot during Covid-19 at That Amazing Place
Nothing could keep Emma and Billy apart – not even the stress of re-arranging a wedding in two days! So in September 2020, after 7 years of being together, the happy couple tied the knot at That Amazing Place whilst surrounded by close family and friends.
That Amazing Place was the perfect venue for Emma and Billy’s beautiful wedding ceremony. They loved that we could give them a private and exclusive space for them to use for the entire day of the wedding. When visiting That Amazing Place on one of our open days, the couple was also impressed by the friendliness of our staff.
“I have always thought that all wedding venues are beautiful in their own way. But what makes That Amazing Place stand out from the crowd is the team that works there, and the owners! They’re friendly, approachable, and really genuine people who want you to have the wedding of your dreams.” says Emma.
Theme and Entertainment
The happy couple chose not to have a specific theme for their wedding. They simply wanted a lovely celebration where they and all of their guests could feel comfortable and relaxed. To add decorations to their laid-back wedding, Emma and Billy chose to use Love Lily, who provided a stunning flower wall.
As for entertainment the couple hired singer and acoustic guitarist Tom Ryder to play throughout the three course meal.
Stunning pale pink hydrangeas and roses by Daisie Chain adorned all of the tables, and Emma’s bouquet was styled to match. All of her bridesmaids also had bouquets of hydrangeas and roses in white, which all matched the intimate and laid-back theme of the wedding perfectly.
Premier Crew Hospitality rose to the challenge of providing the canapes and the three course evening meal, even though the wedding was re-scheduled with 48 hours notice! The couple were very impressed with what they were able to create.
Emma also says, “We were complimented by all the guests about how lovely the food was. The caterers were also great at accommodating the children’s needs and all of our guests’ dietary requirements.”
Emma and Billy also decided not to have a wedding cake, and instead provided their own delicious doughnuts! This fun break from tradition fit perfectly with the relaxed atmosphere of their wedding.
Emma’s beautiful wedding dress was found at Clifford Burr Bridal in Bishop Stortford. As you can see in the stunning photos taken by Robert Baggs, the dress was fitted at the top, flowing down to a princess-style at the bottom. Every gorgeous inch of the dress was also captured by videographers Spotlight Weddings.
Even though Billy and Emma’s wedding was planned in just two days, it ended up being the intimate, laid-back wedding that they had always dreamed of. Due to Covid-19 restrictions only 30 guests were able to attend, but the married couple don’t feel like they missed out on the big wedding they had originally planned.
Emma says, “We’re both happy it happened this way now, and we will remember the day for a long time to come.”
As for special moments, Billy took a photo of the outside ceremony decorations being blown around by the wind…just moments before the ceremony itself! He had wanted to send it to Emma, but Angie (one of the managers of That Amazing Place) wisely advised him against it. Once she saw the photo after the ceremony, Emma agreed that it was the right call!
She says, “The staff at That Amazing Place really went out of their way to make the day completely stress free. They really did everything, and the day wouldn’t have been as wonderful as it was without them.”
We are so pleased that Emma and Billy chose That Amazing Place for their wedding, and that despite all of the difficulties caused by Covid-19, they had a beautiful day. We truly wish them a lifetime of happiness together, and that they think back on their wedding day fondly for years to come.
