As with every couple that passes through That Amazing Place, we’re always blown away by the amount of love for each other they so proudly display yet it has to be said, Sydney and Aaron could very well be the most loving pair we’ve ever met. When asked about their first meeting, Sydney had this to say, “Aaron and I have been together for around 8 years or so. We knew each other at school, admired each other from afar. Aaron was a little older, I would have been too shy to talk to him. I just threw him the odd smile now and again. He has such a beautiful soul; I knew there was something very special about him, even back then.” And so, we bring you our latest ‘real wedding blog’ of Aaron and Sydney, right here at our exclusive-use wedding venue.
Just What Drew Them To Our Exclusive Use Wedding Venue?
The Venue – Living in the age of social media, so many of us now choose recommendations from friends so it’s no surprise that Sydney and Aaron actually stumbled across That Amazing Place, our exclusive use wedding venue, all down to a friendly recommendation, “We were actually recommended the venue by a friend. It was the first place we looked at. We came for a viewing, and were welcomed by Paul…the perfect host. It goes without saying, this venue is gorgeous!”
Theme and Colours – Sydney has described herself and Aaron as notoriously last-minute and as a result, their theme simply came together by itself, “Our theme was loose and sort of grew organically as we got closer to the day. We knew we wanted as many friends involved as possible; we are blessed with so many creative people in our lives. So, all music, hair, make-up, flowers, stationary, dresses and suits were all from family and friends. The ‘loose theme’ included traditional British winter, rich reds, vintage 1950’s Jackie Kennedy/Audrey Hepburn and a little Dolce & Gabbana s/s 15 collection.”
The Dress – Perhaps one of the most attention grabbing parts of any blushing bride’s day has to be the revealing of the dress and with it giving Sydney, “that feeling” as she describes it, her dress was certainly no exception. The dress itself was made in London by another friendly recommendation, Alan Hannah. Originally she found around four to five dresses that she fell in love with but only one really gave her that special feeling when she put it on, making her feel, “just the best I had ever felt!” But in spite of what the majority may say, a wedding isn’t just about the bride. When it came to the groom and his groomsmen, Ted Baker came to the rescue offering a mixture of separate pieces and differing textures with Sydney explaining that the fabulous mixture, “just seemed to sum up Aaron’s personality really. Great quality and individual pieces.”
With a traditional, heart-warming British theme for food and flower arrangements created by Sydney’s mother, this really was a truly British, traditional wedding and we couldn’t have been more pleased to play host here at That Amazing Place, an exclusive use wedding venue.
