WEDDINGS: Another Maiden bowled over at Sussex CCC…30-Aug-2012
There might be not be any love lost when Sussex Sharks take on the Hampshire Royals at The PROBIZ County Ground in Saturday’s Clydesdale Bank 40 semi-final, but there will be plenty of romance off the pitch with Hove the venue for a full wedding ceremony on the same day.
1839 Hospitality & Events, the catering arm of the County and named after the year the Club was formed, will be hosting the marriage of Jonathan Sharp and Danielle Step of Portslade, and whilst they naturally hope for perfect weather, they’ll also be cheering on the Sharks to give a new meaning to something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.
The happy couple will be married in The Boundary Rooms on Saturday afternoon at 3.00pm before making their way across to The Spen Cama Pavilion to enjoy their Wedding Breakfast in The Dining Room. They will also be holding their reception in the historic Long Room in the Pavilion later in the evening.
Sussex County Cricket Club have been hosting Weddings at the ground for the past twelve months, with 15 booked in this calendar year alone.
Danielle Step said of the venue, “I would say we chose the cricket ground because we wanted a more unique venue than a hotel or registry office, and Jonathan loves sports and always follows the cricket. After finding the cricket ground on the list of approved venues and having a tour around the ground we knew we had found our ideal wedding venue.
“We are looking forward to being able to get married so close to the pitch and our guests being able to enjoy the feeling of being at a cricket ground as many of them have never been. I know quite a few of our guests were excited to hear there would be a cricket match on at the same time and I think it makes our wedding truly unique!
“We haven't had to make any drastic changes, the staff at the Club have gone out of their way to ensure our wedding is as close as we imagined it to be and I'm convinced that having the cricket match on will add a great atmosphere to the day. Now we just have to hope Sussex win and it will be the perfect end to a hopefully perfect day.”
