Christchurch Harbour Hotel – Kat & Jonathan

Christchurch Harbour Hotel – Kat & Jonathan

Christchurch Harbour HotelKat & Jonathan got married on a gloriously hot day this May at Christchurch Harbour Hotel in Dorset. As the sun shone down and guests excitedly began to arrive, Kat got ready in one of the hotel rooms with her lovely Mum and best girls.

The ceremony took place in front of large windows and sea views, before guests milled about and chatted in the pretty gardens. Everyone took in the holiday like atmosphere; the weather and the views made everyone – me included – feel like they were on holiday in Spain, which was, as you can imagine, rather glorious. After fun and frolics on the lawns, everyone went back indoors to a delicious 3 course meal (thanks for including me guys!). A jam packed day of laughter and fun, thank you so much for having me along, I absolutely loved it.

The Sandbanks Hotel Wedding – Amy & Tom

The Sandbanks Hotel Wedding – Amy & Tom

The Sandbanks HotelGoodness me! What a BEAUTIFUL wedding Amy and Tom had this July in the wonderful The Sandbanks Hotel here on the South Coast. This incredible wedding venue is sat right on the edge of the beach in Poole overlooking the world famous Sandbanks Beach. The couple could not have asked for better weather; totally tropical temperatures and glorious sun shine made it feel just like a holiday. Absolute bliss!

Laid back romantics suit beach weddings and Amy and Tom fitted that ticket on their wedding day! Gentle tropic pink tones complemented beach blues and grays, we could have been in the Caribbean! The bridesmaids looked lovely in their pale pink hues, and the lace gown Amy fell in love with is just stunning. I love the shots on the beach with day trippers and holidaymakers in the background, just adds to the sense that these guys were doing something extra special! How many of us are lucky enough to say we strolled hand in hand on the beach moments after getting married? Just perfect.

In keeping with Amy and Tom’s tropical beach setting a steel band entertained the guests and later the lucky friends and family were again thoroughly entertained by a brilliant magician. I have studied the photos very carefully and I still can’t work out how he did it! Amazing! The whole day had an atmosphere beach and romance and just gorgeousness the little shells and pearls finishing off the look in the dining room were just perfect.

Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day guys x
