The Night Before At Our Essex Wedding Venue

Essex Wedding Venue

It’s nearly here…your big day. Whether you’ve been planning for years, months or weeks, we bet it’s felt like an age. What’s more, we know only too well that it’s no doubt caused a little stress here and there too. After all that planning, you’re probably feeling a mixture of both excitement and nerves as the big day finally approaches. To make sure you’re not feeling too lost in all the excitement (or too caught up in all the nerves), we thought we’d share a guide we’ve compiled over time, talking to other brides, about the best way to relax here at our Essex wedding venue.

Wash your hair – regardless of whether you’re having a professional hairdresser do your hair, it’s well worth washing your hair the night before your big day. As crazy as it sounds, freshly washed hair is a hairdresser’s nightmare. Washing it the night before however, makes it much more manageable and easier to work with.

Pack for your honeymoon – if you’re off on your honeymoon straight after your nuptials then it’s a good idea to pack before your wedding. This means things will be organised way ahead of time, leaving you to focus on your big day. This also prevents any hideous revelations in the middle of your wedding that you may have forgotten something hugely important. There’s an easy way to make sure things are done and that’s with an old-fashioned checklist. We suggest you start this a few weeks before your wedding and simply re-check everything is packed the night before. No rushing, no stress and a relaxed feeling the night before – sounds perfect.

Last minute beauty prep – the night before your big day is definitely the night for finishing touches. This is the time to enjoy manicures, pedicures and generally spoil yourself. Luckily for you, doing that here at That Amazing Place couldn’t be easier thanks to That Amazing Salon. Our in-house spa is a sanctuary of relaxation and the perfect place to pamper yourself the night before. With quality treatments and beauty therapy, you’ll be in “beauty prep” heaven. It’s the perfect place too, to spend a little time with the guys and girls, enjoying a little last-minute gossip, sharing stories of your single years and imagining your future with the love of your life. We couldn’t think of anything more wonderful the night before your wedding.

Create your emergency kit – ok, so this may actually be more of “a day before” kind of task but nevertheless, it’s one that needs tending to, in order to ensure you relax fully the night before your big day here at our Essex wedding venue. When we talk about your emergency kit, we refer to a kit containing things such as Kirby grips, safety pins, your favourite lipgloss and of course, tissues. By getting this done, you’ll save the midnight stresses and potentially, a complete lack of sleep – the most important kind of course – your beauty sleep.

Here at That Amazing Place, a beautiful Essex wedding venue, we want you to have the time of your life. Having everything organised and indulging in a little pampering the night before, is the perfect way to do that.

We’re An Award-Winning Wedding Venue

Award-winning wedding venue

When it comes to choosing your wedding venue, we know the initial glance can make or break it. Thankfully, our stunning country house wedding venue really does have the wow factor, which is why countless couples book to say “I do”, every single day. While this may be enough for some, here at That Amazing Place, we like to go that extra step further. From the wedding venue itself, to what goes on behind the scenes; we want to not only satisfy the wonderful guests and happy couples we have here, but blow them away. So how can we show that we go above and beyond at every chance possible? By showing you that we’re recognised for doing so. That’s right! Here at That Amazing Place, we aren’t just a beautiful wedding venue, we’re an award-winning wedding venue.

In recent months, we’ve received the hotel and spa awards from the famous Lux magazine. We’ve also received a rather prestigious certificate of excellence from Acquisition International Magazine. More recently however, our hard work has paid off in the form of yet another certificate of excellence, this time from the fabulous TripAdvisor.

TripAdvisor is of course, a well known review based website which means without your wonderful words, without the fantastic reviews we so regularly receive, this award simply wouldn’t be possible. For that, we thank you. It’s only down to the kind words of yours that we’ve been awarded such a title and we couldn’t be more appreciative.

So what exactly does this award mean, aside from That Amazing Place being an award-winning wedding venue? Well it might help to first explain what the certificate is. The certificate of excellence was actually founded in 2010 specifically to reward hospitality businesses that deliver great service on a consistent basis. This is judged by the reviews given on the TripAdvisor website which means it’s a worldwide recognised certificate. From review ratings, overall ratings and quantity along with recency of reviews; all is considered before the award is given to any establishment. To make you realise just how fantastic this award is, here’s how each hospitality business qualifies:

  • Must maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five stars
  • Must have a minimum number of reviews (therefore preventing just one great review from allowing someone to qualify)
  • Must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least twelve months in total

With this in mind, it’s easy to see just how hard it is to receive such an award. In the day and age of social media, with good (and bad) reviews being as easy to leave as it is to drink your first morning coffee, it just highlights the amazing service we provide consistently throughout each year.

So, what else is there to say apart from, thank you to each and every one of you. If you’d like to hold your wedding here at That Amazing Place, an award-winning wedding venue in Essex, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
