Weddings are very important to couples who decided to live with one another for the rest of their life. Preparations could take up months or years, depending on how big the wedding is. The couple would have to look for contractors such as marquee hire in Melbourne if they are planning to do the wedding on an outside venue. Wedding fiascos cannot be helped as well as unexpected things occur along the way.
A couple from Borders who got married did not let the fact that flooding chose to hit on the same day of their wedding. The groom Andrew Dun and the bride, Agnes, are residing in Heriot. At the same day of their wedding, the River Eye decided to overflow with water and their original venue was flooded. They needed to move to a new location at the very last minute and they were able to do so with the help from families and friends. They had no choice but to leave behind the marquee they have hired for the occasion.
The couple had been preparing for their big day since the month of March and everything was in place for them to celebrate their wedding the right way. They have decided to do the wedding at Grantshouse where the home of Agnes’s parents is located. It was already decided that they are to wed on the last day of June.
The problem started on the day before the wedding when heavy rain started falling. The rain caused puddles to form on the floor where the marquee was erected by Best Intent, a company based in St. Boswells. This did not bother them at all because it was only a small amount of water. The couple hired a catering service from Galashiels called Gary Moore Catering and they started to work on the decors as well as the tables for the bridal party dismissing the puddles forming as nothing but a small inconvenience.
Around three in the afternoon of the same day, the river overflowed and the whole field was flooded. Unfortunately, the marquee was included as well.
They did not lose hope but rather asked for help from friends and family and they were able to move everything to a new location in East Preston Farm where there is an available shed. An hour after midnight, on the day of their wedding, the new venue is ready. Couples who are having outdoor weddings are encouraged to look for marquee hire in Melbourne in order to make sure their wedding location is protected in case of heavy rain or strong wind.
