First couple say their “I dos” at the Beacon

THE first couple to be married at the Beacon, in Redcar, have said their “I dos” while enjoying the picturesque scenery of the coastline.

Delivery driver, Michal Noga and housewife, Katarzyna Oblinska, who are originally from Poland, live in Grangetown with their two children Nathan, 3, and Amelia, 6.

The young couple saw the Beacon’s wedding room advertised on Facebook, picked up the phone and set the date for the end of July.

“We had a wonderful day,” Katarzyna, 23, said, “the view was amazing and you only get married once, so I think it was a beautiful place to do it.

“The wedding room is in the sky lounge so we were facing out on to the seafront as we said our vows. Michal wanted to get married near the beach, so it was perfect.”

Decorated with a contemporary feel, the venue can accommodate up to 12 guests, a photographer and of course the happy couple.

After the ceremony, the bride and groom had their pictures taken on the viewing platform at the top of the building with a backdrop of breath-taking views.

“Our parents and a witness came over from Poland,” added Katarzyna, “it really was a lovely day.”

Speaking of the night Michal popped the question, Katarzyna said: “I was making mashed potatoes, and he told me he had a question to ask me, I turned around and he was down on one knee,” she laughed, “It was romantic, but he could have waited until after I had finished the tea!”

Councillor Christopher Massey, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Resources at Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said: “We are delighted for Katarzyna and Michal, who are our first couple married at the Beacon. I wish them the best of luck for their future together.

“The Beacon is a unique wedding venue, especially for anyone looking for an intimate ceremony by the beach, so please do get in touch with the council if you are interested.”
