Who doesn’t love a real love story? We know we go weak at the knees for a little romance and what could be more romantic than hearing about a special couple’s wedding day? Today we’re looking at the nuptials of Lucy and Michael. Lucy and Michael had been together 10 years when they said “I do”. Lucy was just 19 years old, and Michael 21 when they met. In 2017, Michael proposed and Lucy, in her own words, “wasted no time in booking the wedding after waiting so long!” So here’s a little look into their special day, right here at That Amazing Place.
Lucy and Michael came to view That Amazing Place and fell in love with its beauty and laid back feel, “You feel welcome and at home the minute you arrive and the whole place is decorated to perfection. It’s a place you just don’t want to leave. I never wanted a venue that made it seem that we were pretending to be anything like a castle etc. I just wanted somewhere where all our friends and family could relax and have an amazing time” and that’s exactly what she got with our Essex wedding venue. Lucy also felt at ease dropping Angie, our wedding coordinator an email whenever she needed to, “she was always so helpful in her responses. Whenever we were at the venue before the wedding or on the day, Paul was so fantastic too. He made us feel so welcome and special. That meant so much to us.”
Theme and Entertainment
As opposed to a theme, the happy couple instead opted for a colour scheme. They enjoyed gold throughout, with accents of pink. Lucy explained, “The guys at That Amazing Place were fantastic on every level with helping me bring my ideas to life. They helped me find retailers who would stock the items I wanted, some items I’d searched a lifetime for. Their list of recommended suppliers online also helped me immensely. I booked my photographer, singer, stationary and chair covers through this list.”
Lucy and Michael were very lucky to have the aunt of their maid of honour create the flowers for their wedding. They opted for whites and pale pinks in the bride’s bouquet and just white for the bridesmaids. Eucalyptus was placed throughout all flowers on the day as Lucy is a huge fan.
For entertainment, the couple had Matty Evans perform magic at the drinks reception who just so happened to go down a storm with the couple’s guests. They also booked Joe Boshell to sing, “who we found through That Amazing Place’s list of recommended suppliers. He was amazing and all my guests loved him. Having him sing our first dance song was so special. His second performance made the whole night, everyone was dancing and singing along.”
For catering, once again, they dove into That Amazing Place’s list of recommended suppliers and chose the wonderful Magpie Catering. Michael explained, “they were so accommodating to individual guests needs and helped us so much in picking the menu. On the day everyone felt so looked after and the food was so good!”
The dress Lucy wore was a Ronald Joyce number from Confetti and Lace. She fell in love with the dress immediately, “When I put on that dress, there was no hesitation. I knew it was the right one. It was everything I’d wanted, straps, low back, fitted in all the right places. Just beautiful.”
What would a wedding be without those truly magical moments? For Lucy and Michael there were two moments in particular that really stuck out. “When Joe Boshell was singing ‘Hey Jude’ and I looked around to see all of our guests singing together. I just took a second and I was in this perfect place with everyone I loved…” and perhaps for Lucy in particular, a special moment with her father, “My dad was so emotional on the day bless him. He was sobbing on the walk to the aisle and I couldn’t help but laugh.”
Here’s to the wonderful couple. From all of us here at That Amazing Place, we wish you many years of happiness and we hope to see you in the future for anniversary celebrations and more.
