BUILDER David Shooter swapped his hard hat and reflective jacket for a smart suit and tie to become one of the first people to get married at a new hotel he helped build.
David, senior site manager for construction firm, Bowmer and Kirkland, was working on the £22m Radisson Blu at East Midlands Airport, when he needed to find a wedding venue so he could tie the knot with bride Laura Hopkins, from Chesterfield.
The couple’s event became the first wedding booking for the luxury 218-room hotel.
David said: “I knew I wanted us to be one of the first couples to get married at the hotel so I got our wedding booked in as soon as I could. Luckily Laura now thinks I chose the perfect venue too.
“It has been great to come back to the hotel and enjoy the results of all the hard work that went into creating this fantastic venue.
“The Radisson team has been wonderful, throughout the planning to the actual day. The head chef worked with us to create a fantastic wedding breakfast and it was just what we wanted. We’ve had the most amazing day.”
