Southport theatre’s first ever stage wedding

This month, Southport Theatre’s stage will be playing host to a different kind of performance; the theatre’s first stage wedding which will be nautical themed.

Following an appeal from the bride and groom, Anne and Nic, Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre has stepped forward to help dress the stage to make sure the perfect seaside setting is achieved.

Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre is a stunning watersports and visitor centre located in Waterloo. The Lakeside team are supplying a boat, oars and other nautical accessories for props which will enable the couple’s unusual nuptials vision become a reality.

Anne and Nic are set to marry next bank holiday weekend, on Friday 23rd May 2014, and like any other happy couple, they’ve chosen a unique venue to ensure their special day is unforgettable. Southport theatre opened back in 1973, and after undergoing major refurbishment it offers a whole host of conference and event facilities in addition to spectacular shows.

Mr and Mrs Wilson-to-be’s nautical civil ceremony will be a small affair on stage in front of family and friends who’ll be watching from the stalls. However theatre lovers are welcome to come along to witness this historical event, which starts at 12.30pm.

The bride, Anne Kelly says: “We can’t thank Crosby Lakeside enough for offering to help dress the stage, and with just two weeks to go we are confident that the creative theatre team will make our wedding day spectacular.” Anne a Communications Officer, and Nic a Maths teacher, live in Waterloo, a stone’s throw away from Crosby Lakeside which inspired their water based wedding theme.

Darren James, Operations Manager at Southport Theatre & Convention Centre says: “After months of careful planning, we are all very excited here to see Anne and Nic’s big day go brilliantly. This will be our first stage wedding, so it’s literally going to be history in the making for us!”.

In keeping with the theme, Anne held her hen do at the newly opened Titanic Aparthotel – 30 James Street.
