The Wedding of Holly & Will
Holly & Will held their wedding reception in the Ballroom at Victoria Park with ceremony on-site in the Courtyard. Recently the pair sat down to discuss their big day with the Victoria Park team.
Tell us about your journey together, from how you met, to what the proposal was like!
We had each other on Tinder and Instagram before we finally met at our powerlifting gym (strength sports gym). Will was actually with someone at the time we met but once I found out that he was single again, I swooped in and secured what was meant to be mine. There was actually no proposal, we had our son, he was only a few weeks old when we looked at each other and decided to start planning a wedding so we could be married.
What (besides the obvious ‘I do’) was your favourite part of your wedding?
Definitely the speeches! Everyone’s speech was so different to each other’s. It was so beautiful to listen and witness what everyone wanted to say.
Tell us about your decorations and wedding styling – did you incorporate anything new / a theme? What did you choose for your wedding entertainment and guest favors?
We went with lots of florals with the colour scheme of nudes, pinks and pops of terracotta. We also added in gold when we could.
We had Harrison from GM Events be our DJ, he was great!
We had Mr + Mrs cookies as wedding favours.
What’s the best piece of advice you can give other brides to be?
I know the wedding is meant to be about you two but when planning, try to figure out what would make your guests have the best time. When you are at your wedding you are hopeful everyone’s bellies and glasses are full, that they are soaking up the night just like you two will be.
Would you recommend Victoria Park to other people getting married?
Hell yes! Victoria Park were so accommodating, even with dietary requirements for your guests – they cater to every need so you don’t need to worry about people missing out on food. It’s also such a beautiful place to get married and if you are lucky enough to get Georgie helping you out on the night, you will be in amazing hands!
