It’s been quite a while since we last shared a real wedding story here at That Amazing Place and we couldn’t be more pleased to be sharing the wonderful nuptials of Tash and Matt. This gorgeous couple, after having met via Tinder four years previous decided to say their “I do’s” at our stunning country house wedding venue after deciding it ticked all the boxes, there and then and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Let’s dive into their wonderful day and see just what made their special day that extra bit special and just why they chose to say yes to That Amazing Place…

The Venue

When we asked Tash just why herself and Matt decided on That Amazing Place, there was no hesitation, “It was only the second place that we viewed and it ticked all the boxes. The additional option for our family to be able to stay for the weekend at the venue was what swayed us, as it gave the wedding a more homely vibe.” Something that also really stood out for Tash and Matt was the help they received from the start, “Angie, Sarah and the team at TAP were so welcoming and down to earth. With such experience behind them we knew we could trust their support and suggestions, and as such they made wedding planning so exciting and memorable.”

Their theme was decided from their choice of flower. They found a photo together online that they both loved which led to them choosing a fantastic colour scheme of peach, burgundy, ivory and rose gold. They loved the classic appeal with a rustic twist. When it came to their entertainment, they sought the help of That Amazing Place for suggestions and used the fabulous Herts Events. Tash said, “Mark the DJ was brilliant and very responsive to the crowd. He even let the groom do his own pre-prepared set. We had fireworks in the evening too thanks to Fireworks Crazy; the display was beautiful and definitely made the evening very special and unforgettable.

Tash and Matt chose the fabulous Premier Crew Catering to cater for their big day. They had paella and a BBQ for the wedding breakfast, which went down a storm. Their guests were then treated to mini fish and chips later on in the evening. What else could they say but, “amazing food and value”.

Tash and Matt’s big day was truly something special and one we’ll cherish for a long time. From all of us at That Amazing Place, we’d just like to say a huge congratulations once again to the happy couple and we hope to see them back very soon celebrating their forthcoming anniversaries!

Hattie & Rhys Jones’ Happy Wedding Day

Today we’re looking at the wonderful wedding day of Hattie and Rhys, who said their “I do’s” on September 16th of this year right here at That Amazing Place. Hattie and Rhys has been together for eight years when they married after meeting randomly on a weekend where they were both enjoying company with friends. After hitting it off in a pub garden, and thanks to a rather persistent friend, Rhys and Hattie kept in touch and the rest as they say is history. So here’s a peek into their wonderful day…

With family coming from afar, it was hugely important that Hattie and Rhys found somewhere that felt like a home from home. Hattie explained, “Being able to arrive on the Friday and relax and stay for the duration of the weekend was a great addition to what we were after. After our first visit to view That Amazing Place, we got in the car, both looked at each other and smiled; we knew it was the place for us.” The beautiful surroundings, impeccable décor and of course the staff, were huge advantages to Hattie and Rhys and convinced them quite easily that our Essex wedding venue was the one for them. They were also incredibly thankful for Paul, one of the venues owners, and event manager Angie, for making their family and friends on the day feel incredibly welcomed. Hattie describes them as being incredibly attentive throughout the whole weekend.

Hattie explained their aim was for their wedding day was simplicity; a relaxed social event and That Amazing Place became the perfect backdrop for it. This desire was reflected in the theme with simple white flowers housed in exquisite glass throughout. The colour theme was also reflected throughout the entire bridal party with adult bridesmaids wearing platinum and younger bridesmaids wearing navy. Hattie went on to explain, “The Groom and groomsmen also wore navy with navy ties and white polka dots. Rhys’s tie was navy with purple polka dots to match my shoes and bouquet.” In terms of entertainment, they enjoyed a live band called “The Money” from Nottingham. They’d seen them “perform quite a few years ago at a family’s wedding and loved the variety of their sets, so were keen to have them play at our wedding. They also did the DJ’ing in between sets and finished off our night with a requested garage half-hour!”

For their catering, Hattie and Rhys opted for one of our preferred suppliers, the fabulous Premier Crew Catering. Hattie said, “Sarah was fantastic throughout the process…we wanted a simple, relaxed and social day so we went for Afternoon Tea as our Wedding Breakfast; this was followed by a hog roast and BBQ in the early evening for all of our day and evening guests. The food was fantastic and Afternoon Tea looked beautiful on entering the room.”
