Amy + Terry | That Amazing Place wedding
Back to August 2019 we go, and a reminder of those long, sunny, hazy summer days that are perfect for a wedding. Amy and Terry’s day was my second wedding at That Amazing Place in Harlow, in the space of a month, having never previously been before then. They’d enquired with me originally back in early January 2018, so I’d been looking forward to this one for a long time! I was really happy that the weather forecast for the day looked good; we’d attempted to do their pre-wedding shoot twice previously but both times it had been rained off – an indictment of 2019’s rainy summer.
Amy and her girls were getting ready in the bridal cottage just next door to the main house, and as I arrived I was surprised to see she was pretty much ready! Something I came to understand was that Amy was mega keen to get cracking, and was in her dress and ready to go in good time!
Terry and the gents were getting ready at A+T’s house in close proximity to the venue, no doubt so we could get some lovely snaps of their new kitchen. Has Terry told you about their new kitchen?
I loved the reactions during the ceremony… not least when Amy’s sister nearly fell up the aisle (sorry Megan), and Terry looking like he’d been knocked for six when he saw Amy for the first time in her dress. Scroll down to see and read more….
The venue had been styled with some sophisticated whites and greens, alongside some gin-inspired table decorations, plus some cheeky shots provided by the bride and groom to round off their speeches with.
I’d never heard such an incredible introduction for a couple before! Just before the new Mr & Mrs were announced into the room for their wedding breakfast, their guests had created such an amazing atmosphere for them, I genuinely had never heard anything like it! That paved the way for some fab speeches by Amy’s dad and Terry’s Best Man. It was during the Best Man’s speech that I noticed Terry start to look more and more nervous, no doubt knowing it was his turn to speak next, but he needn’t have worried. It was a belter!
When I’d met up with Amy and Terry just before their wedding, Amy mentioned that straight after their first dance, the DJ would whack on ‘Insomnia’ by Faithless, because it reminded her of driving around with her Dad, tunes blaring, when they were younger. When the beat dropped, everyone went crazy! What a tune. Every time I hear that song now, I’ll be reminded of that crazy dancefloor 🙂
