Unlike any other Saturday afternoon in Morrisons Supermarket, this one was full of spectacle. There was music, applause, eyes wide with disbelief as the Bride entered the store with her bridesmaids and friends. There were big smiles as people realised what was going on, the jostling of shoppers, smart phones held high to take photos, ITV and BBC cameras, the Press Association and the Morrisons photographer all vying for position, cafe customers standing on tables. ‘Love is an open door’ played across the store as we started their Wedding Ceremony.
Rebecca Wooller and Blake Green chose an unusual venue of a supermarket for their Wedding Ceremony. After being introduced by their landlady and with Rebecca being quite poorly at the time, they had their first few dates in the Cafe at Morrisons. Not perhaps the most romantic setting you would think. But when it came to Rebecca and Blake’s Wedding Ceremony it had all the elements of a traditional and emotional wedding. It was full of romance, laughter and love.
We give all our lovely couples the Wedding Book we have carefully put together. Rebecca and Blake spent time together choosing readings, poems and vows. We also spent time with Rebecca and Blake finding out what they wanted in their wedding service. While they had chosen an unusual venue, they wanted to include readings, exchange vows and rings, have special people involved and do all the things you would want in a traditional ceremony. Blake read ‘A Lovely Love Story’ by Edward Monkton and another reading ‘The Cowgirl’ was included.
Rebecca and Blake were totally focussed on each other as they exchanged vows and we included our Ring Ceremony which involved all their invited guests. Rebecca’s 5-year old grandson was very much involved as well, the perfect little bodyguard for those all important wedding rings. We sang a rousing version of Dusty Springfield’s ‘I only Want to be with You’. Songsheets were handed round, the music played and we all sang at the top of our voices.
After the happy couple signed our Wedding Certificate we announced them Man and Wife. They left the store to cheers, applause and many congratulations.
And finally a picture of their happy family. We wish them all the love, laughter and luck in the world as they look to a happy future together.
