Rosa And Alex Wedding, That Amazing Place, Harlow, Essex
Here at our stunning country venue, That Amazing Place, we enjoy sharing the stories of the beautiful weddings and once in a lifetime experiences we help to create. In this blog, we feature the story of Rosa and Alex, who celebrated their wedding with us in June 2019.
Our happy couple have known each other since their school days and had previously dated when younger. Eventually, true love found a way to reconnect them together as a couple and they have now been together for 3 years.
Rosa and Alex looked at a few other wedding venues, but we’re happy to say That Amazing Place was the one that really stood out for them as “everyone was so friendly”. However, the thing that really sealed the deal for this lovely couple, was our policy of allowing dogs to attend the wedding.
At our stunning venue, we truly recognise that dogs are an important part of many families. We think weddings should be tailor-made to the individual couples tastes and always strive to prioritise the things that make their day and our service special. Rosa said “Thank you so much, our day was just perfect! Angie was amazing and everything ran so smoothly!”
Theme and entertainment
Whilst Rosa and Alex didn’t have a particular theme, they chose to dress our neutral venue in their colour scheme of blush and rose gold.
To provide some background music and create a welcoming, but sophisticated environment for their guests, our happy couple hired a saxophonist for background music during the drinks reception. For the evening reception they used our recommended DJ, Andy from Herts Entertainment who never fails to get the party started.
Whilst Rosa didn’t have any specific requests for flowers, she knew she didn’t want anything too perfect or too disordered. Caroline at the Orchid Room in Wickford was able to offer her expert advice and supplied all the flower and table arrangements.
Tall vases with large arrangements looked simply stunning in the wedding breakfast room.
Rosa said “the flowers and arrangements turned out to be beautiful”.
This beautiful bride is very petite, so found choosing a dress for her frame a little challenging. In the end, Rosa selected a fitted dress with spaghetti straps, a gorgeous large lace train and a beautiful, detailed back. We think you will agree, that Rosa made the right choice and looked simply stunning.
Our newlyweds opted to go with Premier Crew for the catering and a formal three course meal.
Premier Crew were also able to offer guests an option for each course and this worked really well as they catered to all tastes.
All the guests agreed that the food was delicious. For the food in the evening, the bride and groom opted for a pizza oven, which is housed in a converted horse box, providing a talking point and delicious catering all at the same time! The fresh made to order pizzas “went down a treat’”.
All our weddings are always full of special moments and this one was no different. Rosa said if she had to pick one, it was when they first laid eyes on each other at the start of the ceremony, in the picturesque setting by the lake. Our lovely bride said “We both found it hard not to shed a tear when we saw each other”.
Congratulations Rosa and Alex
We wish Rosa and Alex a long life together filled with many more special memories and joyous occasions. We hope they will visit us again soon to celebrate their anniversaries and other special events.
