Jo and Nick’s wedding took place in and around Wimborne with a church ceremony at St Stephen’s in Pamphill followed by a reception at Deans Court.
We met up with both the Groom and Bridal Party in Wimborne as Nick was staying at The Gate House on the Deans Court estate. Jo, her Mum and Bridesmaids had their hair and make-up done by the Clarins ladies just around the corner from here at The Beauty Centre.
The Bridal Party did a spot of wedding prepping in the morning after an impromptu photo session with some Vikings setting up camp in the grounds of Wimborne Minster. Then it was time for Brunch before getting dressed for the ceremony.
Morning nerves on the Bride’s side were well and truly settled just before leaving when a panicked call from the Groom revealed he was stuck at The Gate House after thinking the Bridal Car was also coming to pick him up! Luckily, everything was so close this was more funny than it was a planning hiccup and it only meant hanging fire for a few minutes whilst the Groom got to the front of the church.
The afternoon reception took place at Deans Court. The weather report had been pretty rubbish but once again this venue was dowsed in glorious sunshine yet again for us throughout the entire day. This was great news as Jo and Nick had planned for a few of their speeches to take place on the lawn before sitting down for their wedding breakfast.
Despite feeling like a Summer’s Day the earlier sunset heralded the fact Autumn has well and truly arrived. Everyone kept warm dancing the night away in the marquee. Just to get everyone going Jo changed into a dress suitable for a energetic and brilliantly bonkers First Dance.
