Steph and Tom got married at the stately Athelhampton House near Dorchester, after making their way from where they both got ready in Poole.
Things kicked off for me at Steph and Tom’s house where the girls were pampered with hair and make-up while Ian met up with the boys. The bridal party were picked up in a bright VW Campervan and Convertible. Steph’s dad is a massive Beach Boys fan so as a bonus we revved our way along to a suitably fitting, surfy soundtrack.
The attention to detail when it comes to service at Athelhampton is superb, with wedding co-ordinator Laura Dean doing a brilliant job of running a tight ship whilst keeping things relaxed and friendly. Steph and Tom were so thoughtful in treating us to a slap-up, three-course meal on our break – the food was so delicious. It still makes me laugh that Tom asked for his dessert to consist of three apple crumbles rather than the standard selection. If you can’t make dessert demands on your Wedding Day, when can you? Personally I would have asked for three of all three.
The grounds of Athelhampton are absolutely huge so guests had a fine time wandering around and exploring little nooks and crannies. As well as the main house – where the ceremony took place – Steph and Tom had full run of the Long Hall and The Conservatory too, which they turned into an evening Casino.
