Tuesday July 15th at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground was special for more than just the welcome victory over Glamorgan in the NatWest T20 Blast. The evening also included a match-up of two lovebirds who came together in holy matrimony in front of a congregation of friends and family.
However, despite the beautiful dress, morning suit, pretty bridesmaids, smiling congregation, confetti and champagne, this wedding wasn’t all that it seemed. It was in fact a very realistic ‘flash mob’ wedding that we staged to show off the venue to potential brides and grooms who are planning their big day.
The club has become a really popular venue for weddings over the years and it’s easy to see why when you consider all we have to offer here. Award winning catering, naturally lit hospitality suites, numerous parking spaces, highly trained staff and Saturday availability, make the home of cricket in Sussex the ideal location for your special day. And yes, we are also licensed to hold civil ceremonies in our historic pavilion.
Special thanks must go to Ozone Weddings in Church Street, Brighton, who supplied all the outfits and made sure our pretend wedding, looked just like the real thing. The bride and groom looked stunning, as did the bridesmaids.
We held a ceremony on the grass in front of the club shop for all the cricket fans to see as they entered the ground, officiated over by an umpire, and then went in front of a packed Herbalife south-west stand where our bride threw bouquets into the crowd – people who caught the flying flowers won tickets to a match of their choice and, who knows, are maybe next in line to tie the knot at the BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground?!
Because the match was live on Sky all the fun was captured on TV too, so the message went out loud and clear to thousands of viewers at home, and sitting in the ground, that the venue has everything you need to make your special day that bit extra special.
