The Wedding of Bex and Andy at Ston Easton Park Hotel – Part One

We were excited to make our way over to Somerset for our first wedding of 2011 at a new venue for us, Ston Easton Park Hotel. Bex and Andy’s wedding day had perfect balance; it was elegant, entertaining, loving and playful. Helped along by the fact the hotel were happy to let the couple’s beloved three dogs attend the day. As they’re practically family this seemed so right.

It was delightful to kick things off being welcomed by the hotel’s resident Spaniel, Oscar who always seems to be kicking around the lobby enthusiastically greeting guests. He is SO adorable and took this whole wedding malarkey in his stride. He’s obviously used to it.

By all accounts the girls had a fun-filled night’s sleepover at the hotel but they were revved full of energy and excitement for the day ahead.

The Wedding of Bex and Andy at Ston Easton Park Hotel – Part Two

Following on from Part One, we left the guests with their red noses and had a quick walk around the hotel’s grounds whilst the ceremony room was turned over for the wedding breakfast. The sun had broken out just in time. Hooray for Spring!

This cottage sits within the grounds of Ston Easton Park Hotel and is where Bex and Andy stayed on their wedding night. So quaint and completely unique!

As if by magic…

The cake featured toppers of Bex, Andy, Charlie, Buster and Benson.

Now that’s how to get everyone’s attention…

At this point I should take some time to thank Bex and Andy so much for their thoughtfulness on the day. They were always checking whether we needed anything and arranged for us to have a spot of grub during our break. Thank you also to the amazingly organised and friendly staff at Ston Easton Park Hotel. There aren’t many hotels who will go out of their way to track you down to bring you surprise chicken with a smile, whilst obviously being swept off their feet. It made us happy.

In our notes for the day we had a small warning next to the evening schedule – “Warning: First Dance will be QUICK”.… Read Full Post
