We were transported to Italy on the day of Abi & Matt's wedding at Compton Acres. We had the Italian sunshine, music & food and it all felt truly authentic. Abi looked stunning in her Vera Wang wedding dress and the boys went for a relaxed suit with no jackets and I am pleased to report they did not miss them!
The Medici Suite was decorated with blush roses, orchids, pearls and candles by Simply Flowers, who did a fantastic job and Abi handmade the seating plan & stationary. I loved Abi & Matt's wedding cake, decorated with buttons, made by the talented, Lisa Notley. Following the speeches, we headed to Sandbanks Beach to catch the last of the evening sun.
Abi & Matt are such a bubbly, fun and relaxed couple as I'm sure you can see! They shared their day with their closest friends and family, many of whom had traveled from Derby to celebrate.
You may remember Victoria & Tom from their gorgeous Engagement Session in the New Forest, Hampshire. Victoria & Tom held their wedding day at the beautiful Stanwell House Hotel in Lymington, on the edge of the New Forest, Hampshire.
They had a bright sunny wedding filled with yellow & white details. There were lots of giggles as Victoria was getting ready with her Bridesmaids as guests gathered in the conservatory below awaiting the wedding ceremony. Victoria and her father walked down the aisle to the delicate sound of the ukulele.
After an emotional ceremony everyone made their way into the gardens for the drinks reception. Before their wedding breakfast we wondered down the cobbled streets to Lymington Pier.
Victoria & Tom had decked the tables with daisies, lucky in love stickers with lotto scratch card favours and the table names were charming nick names that the couple have for each other, which included 'Pixie Poo' & 'Trouble Monkey'. Following the wedding breakfast guests tucked in to Victoria & Tom's dessert table with their tea & coffee, before making their way to the dance floor!
Victoria & Thomas got married at the beautiful Stanwell House Hotel in Lymington on the edge of The New Forest. It was a glorious sunny day and after a stressful week in the run up to their wedding, they deserved some good luck.
Victoria looked absolutely stunning in her lace dress and I loved the summery yellow colour scheme of Victoria & Thomas' day; More of which will be up on our blog soon! I hope you are both having a wonderful & relaxing time touring Italy, eating lots of Pasta and soaking up the sun!
Lisa & Adrian got married at St Nicholas Church in Studland; a beautiful church not far from the sea. Lisa & Adrian had a country wedding in the middle of Purbeck, with their reception at Kingston Country Courtyard. On the way from Studland we took the coastal road towards Corfe Castle and stopped off to take some shots in front of the amazing scenery, which overlooks the heathland, Poole Harbour & Brownsea Island.
More from Lisa & Adrian's day will be up on the blog soon, but for now here are a couple of our favourites.
Part I: Dawn & Alex got married on 29th July at Stanwell House in Lymington. Lymington is on the edge of The New Forest right by the quay and has that relaxed seaside feel! Dawn & Alex have always loved Stanwell House and the forest, so chose this setting for their chic wedding.
Dawn and Alex are so natural together and it was a pleasure to be a part of their day. Their wedding was full of personal touches and most of the details were made by Dawn, Dawn's mum and an array of tallented friends!
I began the day with Dawn up on the balcony, where hair and make-up was underway, whilst Scott was downstairs with the boys. Dawn looked stunning in her Suzanne Neville wedding dress and lace bolero so much so that the staff were knocking on the door to take a peek before the ceremony.
The ceremony room was beautiful and light and the ceremony itself was full of laughter. Following the ceremony we ventured down the cobbled lane to Lymington Quay to take some shots of the couple alone before heading back to the gardens for drinks and confetti!
