Essex Wedding of the Year

At the Arlington Ballroom we organise many weddings; it is one of our favourite things to do!

Last week we organised the biggest wedding yet! 150 guests for the ceremony and Wedding breakfast and 250 guests for the Evening Reception! It was a great day and not a TOWIE in sight!

Set up for Civil Ceremony 
The Wedding Breakfast laid out

Due to the uncertainty of British weather, the couple hired a marquee adding another dimension to the venue.  This turned out to be a roaring success and can now feature in future events giving extra space when needed.

Guests had a constant source of entertainment, from the magician at the drinks reception to the singer who appeared on ‘The Voice’!

A brilliant twist was the Bride giving a speech, projecting a video on the large screen to entertain the guests further, they loved it!

The evening was not a disappointment with a live band for all to enjoy and lots of drinks flowing. The bride also sang a song with the band which just topped off one of the best weddings ever!

Are you planning a wedding? Here are our tops tips of how to get it right:

1.      Accept help - if someone would like to help you then accept and give them a specific job to do e.g. a friend could contact all the local venues and arrange viewings for you in one day, so all you have to do is turn up!

2.      If in doubt ask! – If you are not happy with part of your package then ask to have it changed, most venues will be happy to adjust their wedding packages to suit your requirements

3.      Double check! -  Just in case you thought you mentioned it, mention it again, leave no room for error!
