From the moment I met Amy and Robbie I absolutely knew this was going to be the kind of wedding I'd never ever forget. Everything added up for me - the music, the energy, the theatre, the laughter and the fun; this was a wedding that summed up everything that's ever been a part of my own life! I instantly felt at home with Amy and Robbie, and all their amazing friends and family who made us feel so incredibly welcome.
Amy and Robbie are both have careers in professional musical theatre, and Amy has recently returned from a tour in Asia as part of the cast of 'Wicked'. Can you even start to imagine the amount of singing and dancing that happened during the bridal preparations? Imagine your favourite Disney film and night out rolled into one... yep, THAT! I was dancing too, I assure you, just not while the camera was rolling ;)
The whole day was absolutely beautiful from start to finish. A good friend of Amy had organised her choir, the Manchester Chorale, to sing before, during and after the wedding service, and they were an incredible addition to the day. There was no shortage of enthusiastic singing in the hymns either - I think you can guess what it sounds like when a talented bunch of musical theaterites sing Lord of the Dance!
The sun shone all day - in fact it was probably the hottest day of the year so far. Rookery Hall was the absolute perfect setting for what was just such a fun-filled, warm and emotionally beautiful day. Amy's dad produced one of the best father of the bride speeches I'd ever heard, and seen.. I say seen as Amy's teddy (well, orangoutang actually) George, played quite a big part in this as he had to pop back home to collect the forgotten speech. We watched on a projector screen as little George left Rookery Hall in his little 4x4, all the way home and back again, making a grand entrance into the wedding breakfast room to rapturous applause and much laughter. I'd met George earlier in the day as he was getting his custom made (let's not mention build-a-bear) suit on. You'll see him appear in the film with a much needed glass of prosecco. I have my own teddy, Rupert, who I've had since I was a baby. To this day I never go anywhere without him, he's always in the suitcase and has seen the world. I started to wish I'd brought him along to the wedding as a companion for George!
Thank you so much you guys for making us feel so welcome, and thank you for booking us and making us a part of your day.
