The owner of a Yeovil-based entertainment company was left “stunned” after his firm was hired for Katie Price’s Somerset wedding.
Russell Lee, owner of Funtasia Entertainment, provided a chocolate fountain, popcorn cart and photo booth at Friday’s Willy Wonka-themed celebration.
Mother-of-three Katie tied the knot with Kieran Hayler during a lavish ceremony at Rookery Manor near Weston-super-Mare.
Guests continued the celebrations in the venue’s banqueting hall which was adorned with vases of sweets and giant multi-coloured lollipops. Mr Lee said his company was not booked under the couple’s names and he therefore had no clue of the high-profile nature of his client until the day.
“She planned it all in two weeks,” Mr Lee said. “It was apparent that something was going on when they asked me for the names of the operatives to be working on the night.
“I only found out for sure when I received a text from an employee as they arrived.
“We are always grateful when we are chosen as a supplier for someone’s big day.
“Sometimes you want to know what the job is beforehand so you can plan and make sure everything is right. With weddings you have to be prepared because it is somebody’s special day. There are no second chances.”
