CherryTop Weddings has developed a new Covid-secure interactive wedding entertainment experience that can be enjoyed by guests attending as well as friends and relatives watching remotely. (It's also ideal for larger celebrations when restrictions lift.) Everyone will receive a 'Love Story' which is a printed booklet personalised by the couple. It contains photographs of the newlyweds and activities chosen by them including a quiz to find out how much their guests know about them, wedding speech bingo, word searches, drawing challenges and much more.
Couples design their own Love Story booklet using CherryTop Weddings' content management system. There's a range of designs and colourways to choose from that suit all wedding themes and couples choose their design for the front and back cover. The package includes a personalised pen with each booklet, a special souvenir of the day, and activities for children.
Guests can upload their responses to the activities, photographs of the day and their messages and wishes for the happy couple to an online interactive Wedding Wall where absent friends can view a live-stream of the day. The technology allows those who are attending virtually to feel as involved and included as those present.
CherryTop Weddings has been developed by the family-run team behind Treasure Trails, a leisure business specialising in family entertainment. Alex Ridd, head of marketing tells us. "The idea for CherryTop Weddings came from my brother's wedding, where we created a booklet for guests with photographs, anecdotes and activities. The guests loved it, so we built on that concept to create CherryTop Weddings. We aim to help couples and guests create and share special memories."
CherryTop Weddings has achieved 'we're good to go' status, the official mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has met the Government's Covid-19 guidelines. Alex adds, "Although the original idea for CherryTop Weddings came before the pandemic, we're thrilled that our product means that couples getting married now can incorporate our new and unique form of entertainment into their day in a Covid-secure way. This time has meant that we're all much more used to doing things virtually. Even after the restrictions are lifted, we expect that trend to continue, with couples looking for ways to involve friends who cannot attend their weddings for health reasons or because they live too far away."
There are different packages available to suit each couple's needs starting from £150. For more information and to book, call 01872 713 344 or visit www.cherrytopweddings.com
