“We chose Il Lido for our solemnisation and dinner reception as we both love Italian food and have fond memories of our holidays in Italy. Everything was perfect – from the gorgeous views of the sunset and sea to the delicious food. Part of the fun came from keeping guests busy with activities. There was a quiz (winners won vouchers), instant hair makeovers, an open bar, and dancing.
I nearly cried twice! I first felt the urge during the ceremony. I was very emotional and couldn’t wait to marry the love of my life! The next was when Leslie’s surprise video message suddenly came up on the screen during the reception. I was very touched.”
