Albion to showcase Falmer wedding plans
10:00am Saturday 26th February 2011 in News
Albion may have been responsible for many football widows down the years but the club is now set to create its first football bride.
More than a dozen couples have already enquired about the possibility of holding their special day at the American Express Community Stadium.
Kev Attwood, 49, and Sue King, 46, are set to be the first couple to wed at the Amex Community Stadium when they marry on July 9 at 3pm.
The Shoreham couple are planning a day to remember decorated in Albion colours.
The loved-up pair even put their nuptials on hold to wait for the Amex after plans for a Withdean marriage were dashed because the stadium didn’t have a licence.
Organisers, who have applied for a wedding licence, claim the multi-million ground can cater for all kinds of celebration.
Polly Harrison, head of hospitality and events at the Amex, said: “We are open to all ideas and want to offer couples a completely bespoke service and, if possible, we want to say yes to any request, no matter how unusual.”
Interested couples will be able to see the facilities at the stadium’s first ever Wedding Fayre on September 4 hosted by Stylish Events while a virtual tour and sample of set menus are also available on request.
