Tim and Jo are friends of mine from Church and an absolutely awesome young couple! Their choice of church was Poulner Baptist Church near Ringwood and their reception at The Manor in Burton, Christchurch, Dorset. From the get go you could tell their wedding was going to be something special as they were so excited about their marriage and everything that was going to be planned for their big day.
Dean and Jade originally wanted to have their wedding abroad in the Bahamas, but the expense meant that not all of their friends and family could attend. So because they visit Christchurch often, they fell in love with Christchurch Harbour Hotel which they had exclusive use of. They had a coastal and Bahamas theme which included imported 'Sands' beer, a caribbean band, shell and beach table centre piece and sand filled vases.
Francis and Katy live in Perth but have English and South African roots amongst others. Most of their family live in England so they decided to have their wedding back in England in the village of Tarrant Monkton with the use of a family friends Farm and grounds for their beautifully decorated country style wedding and their ceremony down the road at All Saints Church.
Nick and Ellie married at the beautiful old and rustic Castle in Chora a small town in Astypalea in Greece, one of the most southern Islands from the mainland. Ellie's Auntie lives in Astypalea and organised the majority of the wedding with close family. They will also have an English celebration on the most popular wedding date this year, July 18th with all friends and family.
Jin and Charlotte married at Church of Holy Angels in Lilliput followed by a fabulous reception at the beautiful Italian Villa in Sandbanks, nestled in amongst Compton Acres gardens. Charlotte grew up in Bournemouth and moved to Birmingham where Jin came from. Jin's side of the family are indian so it was an English and Indian vibe to the day as well as a olive green colour theme with splashes of hessian.
James and Sam married at the beautiful Sopley Mill on the border of Dorset and Hampshire. As it was December and Christmas time, they wanted to embrace the time of the year using rustic tree stumps, tea-lights and mistletoe to really create a rustic woodland feel as ell as using candles that smelt of cinnamon to create that lovely Christmassy smell. They served canapés of pigs in blankets and mini mince pies, along with winter pimms.
John and Natalie married at the beautiful Italian Villa at the grounds of Compton Acres. They had a peach theme to the wedding with lots of details in the reception room using bespoke black chalk boards, multi-coloured sun glasses for all the guests and a they were lucky enough to have a gorgeous sunset at the end of their special day
