A Wedding Story...



C H A R L O T T E & P A U L




On 9th July 2021, we were lucky enough to host Charlotte and Paul's wedding day

here in our Tollgate Suite.


After waiting an extra 12 months for their day, it was such a happy occasion seeing them finally tie the knot. We caught up with Charlotte to hear all about her day and what she thought of her choice of venue...



1. How did you meet ?


We met at a pub on a sunny day!




2. Did you have any postponements

or rearrangements due to Covid?


Yes, our original date was 7th August 2020.




3 . What made you choose the Hurt Arms?


We loved the style of the room, we just knew it was the one.







4 . What was the highlight of your day?


Honestly, I cannot pin point one part of the day, the whole day was amazing.



5 . Did you hire any wedding extras from us ?


Yes, we hired the LOVE Letters.



The LOVE letters are available to hire for 150.00.



6 . Do you have any tips for other couples to make sure the day runs smoothly?


Just enjoy the day, don't worry about timings etc, the wedding coordinator will make sure everything is running on time.



7. What did you do for your Hen/Stag dos ?


The stag do was in Manchester, my Hen Do was a bottomless brunch and garden party.



8 . What was your inspiration for your wedding styling?


I had an idea of what I wanted however, as the planning was in full flow, ideas changed, we ended up doing our own decor which made it more personal on the day.




9 . Which suppliers did you use for your big day?


​Flowers were Suzy Blues in Markeaton Park, the cake was done by 'BAKE' in Ashbourne,

DJ we used the venues recommended, my make-up was done by Sophie Downing, Photographer was Damian Wills Photography, Videographer was Wedding Films UK.



10. Will you miss planning a wedding?


​No, we had to wait another year to get married, happy we finally had our big day.




We'd like to say a huge thank you to Charlotte and Paul for sharing their special day with us. We'd also like to give a special mention to Damian Wills Photography for the fantastic images capturing their day used in this post.
