You can be sure of two things if you’re getting wed at Langtry Manor; you will be looked after so well by their excellent team and there are lots of lovely nooks and crannies and interesting decor to make the most of.
I made my way over to Langtry early in the morning to start snapping Natalie’s bridal preps in the spacious and homely Jersey Lily Room. When I arrived Natalie was just starting on the make-up, joined by her sister who was to take the role of one of the bridemaids.
Natalie’s mum joined us later on in the morning to help with the final preps and take control of the dress lacing.
The room overlooked the garden where Ian snapped up the Groom party when they arrived at the hotel. We were all hoping for an outdoor ceremony in front of Langtry’s gazebo but unfortunately, the weather wasn’t playing fair with us that morning.
With the ‘thumbs up’ for the ceremony to start Natalie got her shoes on and made her way downstairs.
After some family shots outside it was soon time for the wedding breakfast.
The infamous Langtry Manor sparkly swan meringues.
There was a break between the speeches and the evening reception where we had time to take Natalie and Justin down to the beach for some couple shots. I don’t think we’ve ever seen the tide out so far on Bournemouth Beach – it was truly bizarre, but it meant we had a lot more space to play around in.
The spot proved a hit during Natalie and Justin’s pre-wed shoot so we went back.
By the time we got back for the evening the guests had moved over the road to continue the party at Langtry Lodge. After making the most of the rest of the daylight in the rear garden it was time for the First Dance.
With congratulations and thanks to Natalie and Justin x
