A Wedding Story

N I C O L A & N A T H A N


After visiting a wedding fair with us what seems like a lifetime ago, Nicola and Nathan fell in love with our Tollgate Suite. They got a date booked in and began planning their dream day at their favourite venue. Then due to the pandemic, this lovely couple were forced to rearrange their date not once, but twice.


Despite two rearrangements, Nicola and Nathan finally tied the knot with us recently and the waiting had all been worth it! We thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this wonderful couple's journey to married life!


We caught up with the two of them to hear all about their wedding experience.

4. Do you have any hacks/tips for other couples to make your day run smoothly?


"Try not to stress too much over the little things. The only thing that matters is when you are stood at the alter declaring your love for each other in front of family & friends."


5. Did you manage to have stag and hen dos?


"We did both have hen & stag dos, just a lot smaller than would have planned pre-covid."


6. What was your inspiration for your wedding styling?


"The Tollgate Suite - we love the wood around so used that as our base to plan."

7. Which suppliers did you use for your day?


"Little Miss Hubbard for our chair decor & the postbox & love Letters. The rest of the decoration we did ourselves."




8. Is there anything you would change about your day?


"The wearing of masks but looking back you can't even tell. Glad we had to have a disco outside. Felt like a normal wedding day without thinking about COVID."






"I just want to add a special note on for Rachel. I heard after that our wedding was her first wedding due to Emily isolating. She was fantastic, you would never have known she was nervous, everything we asked for she completed. She was constantly around when we needed a question answering & was always telling us what was happening next. "


" I would recommend the Hurt Arms to anyone, nothing was ever too much trouble from the beginning. From my stupid questions to Emily through e-mail for the last few months to the day we got married made it very easy & made me at ease there was

nothing to worry about."




We'd like to say a huge thank you to Nathan and Nicola for sharing their wedding story with us. We're so pleased you finally got to enjoy the day you both deserve!
