The One Where We Start Getting Organised: Wedding Malarky Episode 2

So, given that I’d known about our enagagement for 5 weeks before we’d announced it, safe to say that I’d been stealth planning for the majority of that time. Hidden boards on Pinterest, hidden favourites in my browser; though I did refrain from buying any wedding magazines and when we announced our wedding, we already had a venue viewing booked a couple of days later.

Choosing a venue for us wasn’t that difficult, we knew we wanted to get married in Sheffield, although I’m from Liverpool I haven’t lived there permanently for 14 years and Sheffield is our home together. We also knew that we didn’t to get married in a church, while churches are striking venues for a wedding – the stained glass, the pews, just the whole structure of them! neither of us are particularly religious so, to us, it seemed slightly hypocritical to make use of the facilities to have pretty photos. And the last one, I knew I definitely didn’t want to get married in a faceless hotel with chair covers were forced upon you. So, armed with the knowledge of what we didn’t want, we started looking at the list of registered premises in Sheffield. And to be honest, there aren’t many.  So, when we saw Kelham Island Museum did weddings our interest was piqued. The museum is about 5 minutes away from our flat, we love Kelham Island and all it’s real ale haunts, we’re quite partial to a museum or two and most important of all, Sheffield is really important to us.

Neither of us had ever visited the Museum before and I could tell that all Chris wanted to do was to start reading the information signs but no time for that this time around. His eyes lit up at some of the rooms and I loved that the venue was something different and that essentially, we could do what we wanted, the planning of the wedding reception was our oyster – and best of all, no chair covers required.

So, we did the unthinkable. We booked the first venue we looked at. But you know, we just knew. So, 3pm, 9th August 2014  – you know where we’ll be.
