Katie and Hugh’s wedding makes us long for summertime! They married at Bournemouth Town Hall and then went to the beach for an amazing British seaside wedding.
If you are thinking of having a seaside inspired wedding; do it! Katie and Hugh really went to town on their seaside wedding theme. They adorned the reception with bunting, beach hut string lights, spades, swimwear, sun hats, and even had a dinghy full of beer!
Guests enjoyed fun games including bingo, and a solo guitarist serenaded them in the sunshine as they sipped gin cocktails and dined on hog roast.
You can see in everyone’s faces how much fun they’re having… resulting in a mad dash into the sea! Enjoy these beautiful pictures by Anna Morgan Photography…
We love a festival wedding, and this nautical Sparkford Hall wedding with a festive vibe is awesome. Sarah and Dan created a relaxed and fun wedding with fab nautical details throughout; the ship knots on the tables, nautical wording thrown in at every opportunity, whale cufflinks and even the master of ceremonies in old fashioned crew wear!
For us the best thing about this wedding is the relaxed day everyone had, with the guests enjoying fun and games on the lawn, including a tug of war and sack race.
Our thanks go to Brian Robinson Photography for sharing these amazing pictures.
Rustic, Nautical Theme
“Dan and I work as yacht crew so we spend most of our lives at sea. We therefore don’t get to spend much time with our friends and family. Our Sparkford Hall wedding took place over the whole weekend, which meant we could spend some quality time with our loved ones.”
“We wanted the wedding to reflect our personalities, so we chose a rustic, nautical wedding theme with a fun, festival vibe. There were lots of activities for the kids and, of course, lots and lots of rum for the adults!
Congratulations if you have just got engaged during the festive season; exciting times ahead! If you are looking for weddings full of ideas to, ‘ahem’, copy, then you are going to love this fabulous West Stoke Farm wedding. Everything in this wedding is fun; from the camper van and hand-draw map invitations, to the ‘fizz on the field’ with all the guests wearing top hats and tails… and we don’t me the traditional version!
Philip and Hannah created the most amazing wedding. We hope you enjoy browsing through the fab pictures, taken by Honeydew Moments.
A Wedding We’d Like to Go To
“We had a brilliant wedding day. We didn’t want to get sucked into having a day full of the ‘right’ stuff, so instead we decided to have the wedding we’d most like to go to. It took a lot of hard work and effort, but it was so much fun. We haven’t laughed (or cried) that much in years!
Lily and Oliver’s Colshaw Hall wedding is simply stunning. They created such an elegant summer wedding, making the most of stunning summer blooms for the bridal bouquets and floral arrangements, and the natural summer light that lit up their beautiful venue.
We love Lily’s dress with its delicate lace back, and wait until you see Oliver and the groomsmen’s cool suits.
If you are looking for inspiration for your evening reception then you will love their wedding party! A photo booth, casino tables and a sparkling dance floor; what more could you want?
We hope you love these pictures by Jess Yarwood Photography as much as we do…
“We met at school in 1995 where we became best friends. I then went to university and travelled around Europe working for Thomas Cook. Oliver went to America to undertake a football scholarship and then went on to travel around Australia.
“However, we remained close friends and would often meet to catch up. Then in 2014 Oliver moved in with me as my house mate following a break up. It was from here that we realised that we were more than just friends, and began dating in June 2014. Oliver proposed in Las Vegas in September 2015.
If you don’t fancy a big white wedding with hundreds of guests, and are looking for something small and incredibly intimate, then maybe think about an elopement. We don’t mean rushing of to Gretna Green! How about Cornwall?
This is exactly what Lizzy and Alan did for their wedding. They had an stunning, intimate BoHo Cornwall elopement, with picturesque surroundings. They had no one else to worry about but themselves on their special day. After the ceremony Lizzy, Alan and their son sat on the cliff-side overlooking the sea and enjoyed a decadent picnic in the sunshine. Just perfect!
“Our BoHo Cornwall elopement was an outdoor ceremony with only witnesses. As it was such an intimate day we didn’t have to worry about things such as a theme or styling. It was really just a bouquet, buttonhole and flowers in my hair.
“My dress was the complete opposite to what I ever imagined, but I would never change it. It was comfortable, classic, but with a boho feel. It was also easy to move in which I knew would be important with a 10 month old to look after and photos on the beach.
“I stuck to tradition by having something old, something new and something borrowed. My friends have passed down the same garter, with each friend adding something to it when they marry.
“It was wonderful to feel at ease, knowing it was the first day of the rest of our lives together. It was also amazing to spend such a special day together, not worrying about anyone but ourselves. The whole day was perfect, and we have so many fabulous pictures to help us remember it. We will never get bored of them.”
