Client: Richard & Jen MasonBoncath, West Wales

After getting engaged we were keen to get married sooner rather than later and often talked about the ‘event’. However, as ever with our hectic lifestyle, we never seemed to get around to making any firm arrangements – apart from booking the honeymoon!

With the honeymoon fast approaching and still no plans for the wedding itself we started to panic. That’s when we called in Alan and Mel Dring of The MAD Approach Limited. Although a timescale of 3 months sounded daunting they had the enthusiasm, experience and drive required to make all happen.

Initially, an intimate ceremony in a private house in mid Wales was planned; all the arrangements were made right down to the menu and wine selections for the celebrations…….. and then it all changed!

As well as preparing to get married, we were also in the process of purchasing a small holding on the West coast of Wales and decided it would be a great idea to hold the celebrations within the grounds of our new house. A complete re-write of the original brief was required, now we wanted a more traditional marriage ceremony followed by a big party in our new home.

Six weeks before the big day we gave Alan and Mel a somewhat sketchy brief with very little time to deliver. Moreover, they were tasked with arranging a new wedding in a rural part of Wales not easily accessible by the rest of the country. In spite of the issues, Mel and Alan rose to the challenge and the result was amazing!

The venue, an authentic Bedouin tent was breath-taking, we lost count of the ‘wows’ as guests entered for the first time. The entertainment was also outstanding and the food, a casual ‘grazing menu’ was of the highest quality, all resulting in the relaxed, unique party atmosphere we wanted to create.

The MAD Approach certainly lived up to their boast of delivering beyond our expectations in terms of exclusivity, quality and everlasting memories……. and all delivered within 6 weeks! Simply incredible……

Thank you both soooo much!
