Gosh, what a BEAUTIFUL wedding I have for you here at Parley Manor in Dorset! Everything about Georgia & Mike’s wedding was simply gorgeous – gorgeous florals, gorgeous decor, gorgeous people.
Parley Manor is a really special wedding venue as you can get married in the gardens under a marquee, so it’s very close to feeling like you’re getting married outside without the fear of the British weather forecast. In fact we did have a few drops of rain just as Georgia walked towards Mike arm in arm with her Dad, but I doubt anyone noticed as everyone was too busy watching this lovely pair tie the knot.
After the ceremony we wandered around the beautiful gardens and secret little nooks and crannies taking couple photos whilst guests enjoyed drinks on the lawns. When guests went in for dinner they were treated with little gifts at the table – a funny nod to Mike’s pilot job with toy aeroplanes for the fellas to play with.
Everything about Georgia & Mike’s wedding was just so elegant and pretty – I absolutely LOVE their plant put table plan! An absolutely gorgeous day in every way, thank you so much for welcoming Holly and I along.

Keshia and Ash chose the fabulous Sopley Mill in Dorset, which is another one of those wow venues we are lucky to have local to us. The newly renovated watermill has a great atmosphere and the grounds are along the bank of the Avon River, such a lovely and quirky countryside venue!
To start the day off Keshia got ready with her closest friends and family at the Harbour Hotel in Christchurch. Isn’t the detailing on her dress so lovely? The long train and the antique colour lace were so romantic, and complemented the bridesmaids soft pink dresses wonderfully.
The blue skies over Sopley Mill welcomed the guests and entertained the groomsmen (in very smart blue suits) while waiting for the bride’s arrival. Everyone was in such good spirits for the day. The ceremony was lovely, the little page boy and bridesmaid were totally adorable!
The sun was out for the couple and family shots as we walked around the gorgeous grounds, finding some quiet spots near the river and out in the meadow, making the most of the warm sunlight!
The reception room was dressed beautifully with bunting, flowers and little honey jars for the guests. Keshia and Ash enlisted family and friends in a Great British Bake off competition for the cakes, and there was a wonderful display of talents there from the family and friends! Good job guys!
As we were winding down for the day the guests were all winding up on the dance floor, I reckon they had a blast!
Thanks Keshia and Ash for having me join in on your happy wedding day xx

I absolutely love garden marquee weddings! They are always so relaxed and unique, I love how you’re able to completely put your personality stamp on the day as the marquee is such a blank canvas and can be decorated exactly as you choose. Kate & Tom’s garden marquee wedding in Kate’s parents gorgeous garden didn’t disappoint in the slightest – their big garden was just perfect for the party. They tied the knot in the church opposite and with just a short walk across the road everyone was able to walk back to the marquee and celebrate. What a perfect day, I loved every minute!
A big thank you to Amy Wass who second shot for me, some of these photos are hers.
