Chris & Emily’s Wedding at Upton House and Sandbanks Hotel, Poole

001-uptsand_jul17_bb

We’ve had a bit of a wet and unseasonal peak Summer week of weddings. All of them have been by the seaside and have either been incredibly windy or very wet. Luckily for us though, we’ve been in the company of some great couples who haven’t been afraid to get out, arm themselves with umbrellas or entire cans of Elnette to make the most of their day.

Chris and Emily’s wedding set the trend. Their day was held in Poole with a ceremony at Upton House in Upton Country Park followed by a reception at The Sandbanks Hotel.

The day started with Emily getting ready at the hotel with the help of Amazing Face taking car of hair and make-up.

A little drive away the ceremony was held at Upton Country Park followed by a short drinks reception. We made use of the excellent scope of the house for photos before the rain set in for the day.

The wedding party travelled to the Sandbanks Hotel by bus (one of my old school buses no less – the distinctive Reg plate was a dead give-away and made me chuckle. To be honest, I’m surprised it’s still road-worthy the way we used to treat it back in the day!). Sadly, plans of drinks, games and ice creams on the beach had to be reigned in a little bit as it was just too darn wet to play outside. However, armed with some umbrellas we did manage to get the Bridal Party outside for some photos during a brief respite later on in the day.

The reception room looked wonderful, full of pretty and thoughtful decorations polished off with blooms by Jennifer Poynter Flowers.
