It was a joyous occasion on the 12th-floor at the Generator, Britomart, with Leana and Kevin Becker married in front of 30 friends and family, including their three gorgeous children and guests viewing via Skype from South Africa.
The weather was bright, despite warnings of rain, making for a picture-perfect view with boats on the harbour in the afternoon sunshine. The couple, owners of Xtreme Fitness in Hastings, hadn’t thought they would be getting married for a long time as they concentrated on building their business – that is, until Simply Wed made it possible.
Leana, the beautiful bride, said she couldn’t be happier with how everything went.
“There was not one thing I would have changed. The venue was just gorgeous, the food, the decor, the celebrant were amazing. We had the most perfect day without the stress, and it made the day so much more enjoyable.
“We had thought being a pop-up it would be cheaply done because it isn’t very expensive and usually weddings are, but there was nothing cheap about it.
“The planning was really minimal yet I got the things I actually wanted and that’s what made it special.
“We were able to pick things like the flowers, cake flavour/type etc and Louise the wedding planner was awesome. She was always in touch making sure I was ok, checking in, keeping me in the loop. And the photographer was incredible. We can’t wait to see the photos that were taken!!
“Honestly, if you want a fuss-free stress-free wedding without the huge price tag but all the “big” wedding things, then do it – contact Simply Wed you won’t be disappointed! Thanks so much for our perfect day it was so special and exactly what we had hoped for!”
