Lisa is from Newcastle originally and Glenn is half Dutch, half English. Their story of how they met is a unique one – they did not meet in UK; but in Bahrain where they both work, a lovely country with a great sunshine. They planned this great wedding remotely from Bahrain!
We only met each other a few days before the wedding day as Lisa & Glenn have been looking at my website from Bahrain and even the booking was done over the internet. Lisa is such a great organiser, as she is the Event Organiser for the Formula One (F1) in Bahrain – I still remember at our meeting, Lisa shared with me her experience of meeting Janson Button and Lewis Hamilton and what they are like in person! On the other hand, Glenn is the Chief Security Officer for an investment bank in Bahrain. So between the two of them: Lisa’s organisation & Glenn’s contingency plans make this wedding planned from abroad a successful event!
I also have to say that Close House Hotel is a fantastic wedding venue, it is in my opinion, one of the best wedding venues to host a wedding as it creates a feeling of cosiness, warmth yet very classy feel for a wedding. I was so moved by the speeches, atmosphere, the fantastic first dance by Lisa and Glenn (great ballroom dancing technique, Lisa was injured at the time but didn’t look like it at all!) the dance between the daughter and father, the live music from two of beautiful bridesmaids.
This was a perfect wedding.
Lisa had a glass of champagne before the wedding to calm nerves.
Bridesmaids, mother of bride, and Lisa – have all colour-coordinated outfits. Simply beautiful.
