Ali & Helen’s Wedding at Poole Guildhall & Shell Bay, Studland

Helen and Ali had us along for one of our Short & Sweet days recently taking in their morning preps, wedding ceremony and drinks reception. The morning started off with bridal preps at the lovely Hotel Du Vin in Poole, where we worked alongside our friends Amazing Face.

Their ceremony took place at Poole Guildhall just a short drive away from the hotel. The morning had been lovely and sunny but as soon as Helen and her Bridesmaid’s opened the door to walk down the aisle to “Here Comes The Sun” the heavens opened and it absolutely poured it down.

It was so torrential entire wedding party had to squeeze in to the bottom floor of the open top bus to take the over the Sandbanks Ferry to Studland as the bus to the stairs acted as a waterfall. It took everyone really by surprise and hadn’t been forecast at all but was a fun and memorable moment.

Ali and Helen had a drier ride in Dorset Dub Hire’s VW Camper sipping champagne to Shell Bay Restaurant with a brief stop at Evening Hill along the way.

After a bit of drinks reception we then made our way over to the beach at Studland for a few photos of the newlyweds before leaving them to enjoy their food and the rest of their day overlooking Brownsea Island.… Read Full Post

Laura and Sean’s Wedding Part 1 – Hotel Du Vin & The Guildhall, Poole

Laura and Sean’s Wedding Day took place in Poole and Swanage, with a bit of a jolly bus and Camper Van ride in-between. It was a relaxed day for family and friends, who made the most of their seaside venues.

Things kicked off with me heading to Hotel Du Vin to meet up with Laura as she got ready, whilst Ian spent some time with Sean, his groomsmen and all of the guests as they gathered at The Guildhall.

Laura and Sean’s baby son played a big part in the day and he behaved absolutely immaculately – I didn’t hear him cry once and he seemed spellbound by all the fun. Meanwhile, Laura flew the flag as the yummiest Mummy on the Dorset coastline.

After making the Registrar cry, taking the quickest group photos ever outside the Guildhall (there was a another wedding waiting to go in as soon as we came out – it was a busy Saturday!) we all made our way over to Swanage to continue the party by the beach.

Laura and Sean’s wedding continues in Part Two.… Read Full Post
