On a beautiful, sunny Saturday we boarded the ferry over to Studland to join Kirsty and Alun for their wedding. They’d travelled down from London to make the most of the unbeatable views and idyllic village life in our favourite Purbeck village.
As they’d hired a cottage for the week to enjoy a bit of downtime after the wedding Kirsty and her entourage got ready here helped by hair and make-up artist, Lorraine Milligan.
Meanwhile, after a meet-up at the Bankes Arms and The Pig on the Beach Alun and his Groomsmen made his way to St Nicholas Church for the ceremony. It’s one of our favourite churches for its friendly and accommodating approach and its convenient little hidden photographer nook in a priviledged position at the front.
Kirsty and Alun’s baby girl joined them for the ceremony and even got to enjoy the confetti run before spending a chilled day with her Nanny so her Mum and Dad could party! We hope she loves looking through these photos when she’s older so she can see the part she played in the day.
After a short walk from the church guests enjoyed the sunny views of Harry Warren House in its spectacular location overlooking Old Harry Rocks, Poole Bay, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight.
The Wedding Breakfast and evening reception was held in a marquee next to the house where guests enjoyed food and speeches. It was a really busy day out on the water with a holiday atmosphere in the warm sunshine.
Just before the evening began we went for a little wander down to the shoreline before dancing began.
One detail we really loved from the day was Kirsty’s bridal party. Rather than opt for traditional bridesmaid styling each of the lady’s had their own bespoke hat made my Rosie Olivia Millinery which they can keep and wear again.
