……and it’s still not raining!!!!!!!!!
Jazz was getting ready at Steve’s parent’s home which is where we met her having her hair done by Sam and make-up by Kate.The house was full of dresses, flowers, shoes and girls as there were 6 bridesmaids . The colour theme was black and hot pink which worked really well.
We set off for Parley Manor after having a short time with the Bride to meet the Groom, Best man and ushers. The guys all looked dashing in their suits.Ashton wasn’t only a pageboy but custodian of the rings. As he wasn’t quite walking unaided, his walker had been customised and decorated in the wedding colours with a little pouch to hold the rings. He caused a few heads to turn as he walked down the aisle ahead of the bridal party. He looked so cute!!
With the ceremony over and the formal group photos completed the guests were left to enjoy a drink while we spent some time with the bridal party before being left with just the Bride and Groom. As it was really hot we had decided to split the Bride and Groom photos into two sessions. It would be a little cooler after the wedding breakfast and while the room was being turned around for the evening we could spend a little more time with them.The wedding breakfast was a roast hog which was really delicious, we sat outside to eat with the videographer and caught up with events since our last meeting.
After the speeches we spent some time with the bridesmaids who were now well into wanting their photographs taken, a glass of wine or two may have helped. We had great fun with them. A wander around the beautiful grounds with the Bride and Groom left us with only the first dance to cover. Parley Manor has some great areas for Bride and Groom photographs. It was cooler now and the lighting was perfect.The guests were treated to a top Bournemouth DJ, Mike Artwell who got the evening underway with the first dance.If anyone can pack a floor he can!
We would like to thank the ushers and bridesmaids for their help and friendliness and take this opportunity to not only thank the best man but wish him all the best for his forthcoming wedding.
We wish Steve and Jazz all the very best for their future together and look forward to seeing them soon.
