Lauren and Rob are quite simply the epitome of the modern couple, using the world wide web to cast their net and find the one person they were meant to be with. It’s a modern day fairy tale that we’re only too eager to tell. With first dates surrounding Valentines and a proposal in the idyllic Lake District, a wedding here at That Amazing Place was the cherry on the cake.
For so many couples, the modern, contemporary feel of That Amazing Place mixed with the traditional exterior always bowls them over. For Lauren and Rob however, it wasn’t so much the look of the venue but the feel. Lauren describes That Amazing Place as having a very homely feel and it’s that exact feeling that first drew her to our Essex wedding venue. She also of course remarked on the stunning setting (who wouldn’t!), “I particularly liked that the rooms are decorated so tastefully…no horribly patterned carpet or dated artwork on the walls that I was finding at other venues we had visited. The blank canvas in each room at That Amazing Place meant I had free reign for our wedding theme, not having to worry about clashing colours with existing decor.”
Wedding Party Fashion
When it came to wedding party fashion, the bride wore a stunning cap sleeved lace bodice with a tulle skirt (tulle being very in this season we might add) and pink roses in her hair to finish. The groom and his groomsmen complimented the bride perfectly in navy suits, white shirts and grey waistcoats. They finished off their looks with a pink tie to compliment Lauren’s hair accessories. The bridesmaids were equally a part of the theme as they sauntered down the aisle in beautiful watermelon pink dresses. The difference with Lauren and Rob’s wedding? They allowed each bridesmaid to choose their own style dress. Having them made in matching fabric meant each bridesmaid not only looked the part but felt happy and comfortable on the day! Big tick for Lauren from her wedding party right there we’re sure.
Colour Scheme and Flowers
As you can tell from the wedding party’s fashions, pink was a big part of the day. Lauren is a true romantic and girly girl, and self-confessed Kate Spade obsessive, which is no doubt why vibrant pinks played such an important role. Pinks weren’t the only order of the day however as navy and white stripes were also intertwined along with a touch of gold glitter for some much adored, added sparkle. The happy couple ensured quite literally no area was left untouched and thanks to Jades Flowers, decorated That Amazing Place with huge displays of pink flowers in every space possible.
The catering during the day was handled by one of our recommended suppliers, Magpie Catering. Here they enjoyed mango and chicken salads to start, followed by a choice of seabass or lamb and a trio of desserts. For the evening dining experience, they offered their guests something a little different with a Mexican street food buffet served outside in the form of chicken, steak and halloumi fajitas.
With a string quartet for the ceremony, a magician after dinner and a four tier wedding cake, it’s safe to say that this wedding really did have it all and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to host such a special moment in this wonderful couple’s lifetime together.
