Emotional Rollercoaster – Dream Wedding at Fantasy Island Resort
Thrill-Seeking Couple Swap Las Vegas for Skeg-Vegas and Host Dream Wedding at a UK Theme Park
An adrenaline seeking bride and groom enjoyed their dream wedding last week by tying the knot at one of the UK’s favourite theme parks, Fantasy Island.
Self-confessed thrill-seekers Leanne Smith, 33 from Derby, and Lee Churchill, 39 also from Derby, enjoyed the b-ride of their lives on September 27th, as the pair committed their vows to each other at Fantasy Island theme park, Lincolnshire.
The newlyweds are huge fans of the Skegness theme park, visiting regularly and enjoying all the thrills on offer from the site’s 30-plus attractions.
The couple, who intended to originally get married in Las Vegas before Covid changed their plans for their special day, decided to swap the City of Sin for its English namesake of ‘Skeg-Vegas’, choosing their favourite theme park as the place to host their white wedding.
The pair reached out to Fantasy Island last year to see whether the theme park would be willing to host their dream day, and of course the answer was yes!
As loved ones ventured into the theme park’s indoor attraction area, The Pyramid, they were met with a wedding scene like no other, as decorations adorned the venue infitting with the island adventure themeing.
Following the ceremony, the couple enjoyed their first ride as a married couple, sharing their first thrills on The Millennium, a 150ft high and 55mph rollercoaster – some introduction to married life!
Enjoying a reception in the Explorer Bar, guests were then treated to a wedding meal befitting the location, tucking into the classic seaside dish ‘Fish and Chips’ supplied by local chip shop, Mrs. M’s.
Guests were also able to enjoy other rides The Balloons, Dragon Mountain, Seaquarium, Toucan Tours, new indoor rides Harrington Flint’s Island Adventures and The Guardian and even take part in a spot of mini-golf at the attraction’s Lava Creek Adventure Golf.
Of their special day, bride Leanne, said: “We are so happy to be able to enjoy the happiest day of our lives here at Fantasy Island. The theme park is our favourite place, we come all the time! Being married here is something we only dreamed of; we didn’t know it could be possible!
“We weren’t sure whether they’d let us as we know it’s quite unconventional, however, we saw a post on Facebook asking if getting married here was something anyone had thought of – I emailed straight away! I was over the moon when I got a reply.
“We’re thrill seekers at heart. Whenever we visit, we’re straight on the rides. Toucan Tours is my favourite, whereas Lee prefers The Millennium. We can’t wait to come back to Fantasy Island as a married couple and remember what an amazing wedding day we had here.”
Paige Harris, Head of Marketing at Fantasy Island, said: “It was a true honour to host Lee and Leanne at Fantasy Island for their special day. We know how much they love visiting the theme park, so it was amazing to be able to share their wedding day with them.
“Lee and Leanne are real thrill-seekers, so it felt rather fitting that they tied the knot here of all places. We wish the wedding couple a lifetime of happiness together and we cannot wait to see them onsite once again, this time as a married couple!”.
Fantasy Island, located in Ingoldmells, Lincolnshire, is home to over 30 rides and attractions, from thrilling rollercoasters such as The Odyssey and The Millennium, to smaller rides including The Twister and Cutherbert the Crazy Caterpillar, to 10-pin bowling, laser quest and much more, there’s something for everyone!
