We love a quirky wedding here at Your Wedding Hub and this one is brilliant!
Lee and Gill held their wedding reception their local Asda café – the place they met and fell in love three years ago.
The couple couldn’t afford to splash out on an expensive party – and were delighted when the store offered to host their reception and transformed the store café for the big day.
Their romance began three years ago when Lee invited Gill to join his table because the café was busy. They also live five minutes’ walk from the store, and visit regularly.
She told Asda online: “I’ve been coming to the café regularly for eight years for a bit of company and I think Lee did too. When we came in we weren’t on our own any more. When we met in the café it went from a spark to a flame.
“The café is a special place for us. The staff are lovely – we regard them as our friends and it’s just a lovely place, with a great view of the hills.”
The pair were married at Accrington Registry Office before heading off to the supermarket where staff had lined up to applaud them into the store. They then headed to the café, which had been specially decorated with balloons and tablecloths for the wedding party.
Gill, who’s 55, said to Asda Online: “When the colleagues applauded us in, it made our hearts pitter patter! It was such a lovely thing to do.
“We had a fantastic day and all of our guests really enjoyed it too. The colleagues went all out to make it special. It’s hard to put into words how pleased we are. It was lovely what they had done with the café – it looked wonderful.”
Lee, who’s 42, thanked the Asda staff in his speech. He said: “A special thanks to Asda and the café team. They have worked so hard for us and made our wedding day one to cherish for the rest of our lives.”
He went on to say: “We love the café because of the lovely helpful staff that always have a smile on their faces and are very supportive and friendly. When we told our family and friends our plan they were surprised but very happy for us. Everyone at the store’s been so helpful, providing champagne and even sorting a seating plan for us.”
The store even provided a three tier cake for their special day – how lovely is that?
