It was going to be a glorious hot day, it seems that Summer may have finally arrived.
We found Emma with preparations well underway, everything was well organised and under control. Emma wasn’t nervous or stressed and we could tell that she was going to enjoy her big day.
We left Emma with time for some final preparations and a glass of bubbly to meet the guys at Compton Acres where the ceremony was to be held.
After capturing some images of the groom, best man and ushers we awaited the arrival of the bride.
Emma was so excited she couldn’t wait to be married to Paul! Her excitement showed as the registrar pronounced them Husband and Wife
A drinks reception followed in the gardens while we took the group photographs before the guests headed off to the reception at The Highcliffe Marriott. As the guests departed we headed off to the Japanese Garden for some time alone with the newly married couple.
The guests enjoyed a second drinks reception at the Hotel while they awaited the arrival of the Bride and Groom and got to enjoy some fantastic sunshine and sea views.
The wedding breakfast and speeches followed and the guests were treated to unusual favours – wine made by the Groom, a nice personal touch and I’m sure very much appreciated.
Emma was now ready for some more fun and wanted to go for a ride on the Carousel at Pier Approach.Paul and Emma were joined by quite a few friends for the fair ride. There was so much joy and laughter.
We diverted to the beach for a few more moments alone with the couple before returning to the hotel to greet the evening guests.
The evening celebrations started with the couple’s first dance which had been choreographed by Martin and Jacqueline from Aspects of Dance.
We wish Paul and Emma a lifetime of love, joy and laughter and look forward to seeing them again on return from their honeymoon.

Thank you so much for everything that you did for us on 22nd May, we had such an amazing day. I think that your advice was pivotal to our plan for the day and because we knew exactly where we and everybody else needed to be, we had no stress or worry, it was so much fun!!
