Claire & Simon’s Wedding at Wimborne Minster and Deans Court

Claire and Simon went for a French take on their wedding with plenty of rustic details, a Tour de France table plan, a pretty little bike and delicious crepes for their evening food.

There really was no need to go over to Provence for their day.. the weather in Wimborne was blinding and with the musical accompaniment of the excellent Jonny Hepdir you could easily convince yourself you were in Southern France.

Most of the day took place at Deans Court, apart from a church ceremony at Wimborne Minster.

As well as a seamlessly flowing reception service at Deans Court from Jonathan and his team, Claire and her bridal party got ready at the Apple and Plum cottages on site. Meanwhile, Simon and his groomsmen had some morning refreshments at the Squash Court, conveniently a short stroll away from the Minster.

Nikki and Greg’s Wedding took place between Wimborne and Christchurch – a classic affair with a traditional church ceremony in Wimborne Minster followed by a marquee reception at Parley Manor.
