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
Here are a few of my favourite photos from their fabulous day – thank you to Leoni who assisted me; some of these photos are hers.
