For centuries, happy couples have shared their big day with their nearest and dearest. Fast forward to 2017 however, and the term nearest and dearest covers a lot more than just family and friends. It also happens to include our four legged friends too, who over the centuries have fast become more than just our pets; they’ve become part of our family too. As a result of our change in opinion, more and more pets are now being seen featuring on guest lists than ever before. If you’re thinking of saying “I do” soon, and feel like your four legged friend may want to attend, then you might want to take a peek at this fab piece on including your pets at your wedding…
That Amazing Place – a dog friendly wedding venue
Weddings are without a doubt, one of the most stressful and perhaps nerve-wracking times in your life. It doesn’t matter how well you plan, something can always go wrong; from weather worries to dress disasters. Having your dog there however, could just be the perfect way to ease those wedding jitters. That’s as long as you provide a comfortable setting for your dog too but don’t worry, we’ll let you in on a little secret later.
When it comes to the role you want your dog to play at your wedding, you’ll want to start considering their personality. Do they stress easily in crowds? If so, and you happen to be having a lot of guests, it may be better if they don’t come to the wedding or perhaps simply turn up for the photographs? The last thing you want is to put your best friend through undue stress on your big day. A good rule of thumb is to let your favourite furry friend attend for no longer than two hours. That way they get to join in the fun without getting tired or upset.
If you’ve decided that you’d like your pet there with you on your big day, then it’s going to take a little prep work. It’s not simply a case of having them attend. From the very basics such as getting them there to the more complicated questions; where will you put the poo bags? This however, is where having someone familiar on hand, can come in well…handy. They can help keep your pet company and take them away from the festivities when it’s time to go.
The question is, who are you going to ask without causing an argument? Well, luckily for you there just so happens to be a rather fantastic service offering a helping hand and it’s aptly named Walkies At Weddings. This wonderfully bespoke wedding service will have your dog brought to your wedding, kept company and taken to where they need to go, whether it’s the service itself or simply the photos after the service. They’ll also ensure your favourite furry friend is not only happy at all times but free from mischief which means no sneaking any food from the buffet!

Our Amazing Wedding Venue
If you’re a regular reader of our blog, you may have noticed that we discuss quite a broad spectrum of topics; from wedding top tips to current trends and even the actual weddings that take place here at our country house wedding venue but today, we thought we’d take the time to talk about That Amazing Place itself. From our wonderful manor house to the extensive grounds in which we’re set, we’d like to welcome you to That Amazing Place, a beautiful country house wedding venue nestled in the heart of the Essex countryside. While you may know us as Hubbards Hall, we’re here today to tell you all about our wedding venue and just why we’re so, well…amazing.
Once upon a time, our grade II listed building was actually occupied as a residential property until its current owners, the wonderful Paul and Jane, decided to renovate and re-open it as the elegant venue that it is today. When it comes to That Amazing Place, many people know that we’re a wedding venue but what a great deal of people don’t know is that day to day, we’re also a boutique bed and breakfast. We offer fabulously luxurious rooms along with a variety of excellent facilities, including delicious breakfasts, amazing views and above all else, exquisite customer service. From business stopovers to family breaks, we have the facilities to really make your stay like nothing else.
As we mentioned above, the majority know us as the beautiful wedding venue in Harlow but the question asked by many is what makes us so amazing. Well, our extensive grounds and stunning interior aside, the fact that we’re an exclusive-use wedding venue really does make us stand out from the crowd. We understand only too well that your wedding day is something you want to share with your loved ones, both family and friends however, as much as you may wish to shout your love from the rooftops, we know that you won’t want to share the space with total strangers. It’s for this reason we decided to make it an exclusive use wedding venue to give you the space to enjoy yourself without the worry of unwanted guests spoiling your day.
That’s not all our cosy and intimate wedding venue has to offer however; we also have 12 deluxe bedrooms that sleep up to 25 guests, perfect for housing your guests the night before and evening of your big day. From King rooms to Double Deluxe rooms, we have a fabulous choice to suit everyone.
Last but most certainly not least, we wouldn’t be That Amazing Place without our dog-friendly policy. Unlike a great deal of wedding venues up and down the country, we allow you to bring your four legged friend along with you on your big day because after-all, they’re family aren’t they?
Now of course, we couldn’t possibly squeeze every ounce of “amazingness” into one short blog but we think that goes a little way to explaining just why our wedding venue is as popular as it is. For more information, simply contact us today.
Weddings are said to be one of the most important days of our lives so it’s only natural that you’d want your nearest and dearest there with you. For a great deal of couples, their “nearest and dearest” also happens to include their four legged, furry friend – their dog. Sadly, a great deal of wedding venues won’t allow your dog with you on your big day. Luckily for you however, here at That Amazing Place, we happen to be a dog friendly wedding venue.
With that in mind, as any owner will know, having your dog with you can mean mischievous behaviour at the best of times. Your wedding day however is the one day you can’t risk Rover doing a runner or stealing food from the buffet. Equally, you don’t want to spend your day keeping an eye on your dog. Thankfully, there’s now a fabulous service in the form of Walkies At Weddings.
Walkies At Weddings was created by the wonderful Sally. After her beloved dog Archie died, she decided to give up her job in London and start her own business offering dog walking and doggy daycare services. It was only when a client asked her to bring their dog to their wedding in 2016 that she decided to offer the service for other pup loving couples too. This means for those getting married at our dog friendly wedding venue, they can now enjoy their four legged friend’s company as they say “I do”.
Walkies At Weddings offers three different packages: Gold, Silver and Bronze. The Gold package offers a two night stay with your dog being taken to the wedding, during which time your dog will be brushed, transported to and from your weddings and looked after for the duration. Sally explained that most brides opt for the Gold package as the two nights boarding alleviates a lot of stress, something they don’t exactly need any more of.
What’s more, you can even now have your doggy dressed to perfection to match the rest of your bridal party. Included in their prices are the use of bow ties and sparkly collars. If however, you’d like to arrange your dog to have something more specialised such as a floral collar, or doggy veil, Sally will be more than happy to fit it to your dog on arrival.
Dogs are a major part of people’s lives and if it just so happens to be the case for you, then Walkies At Weddings could be just the service you’re looking for. From having your dog watched, as you walk down the aisle to creating cherished memories as you pose for wedding photos with your favourite furry family member, Walkies At Weddings can help. What’s more, our dog-friendly wedding venue can make it happen for you. For more information contact Sally at Walkies at Weddings!
