Another beautiful Summer’s day with a slight breeze which helped to keep the temperature down and a little more comfortable than of late.
Pete and Nicola were to be married at Wimborne Minster, a traditional parish church steeped in history and very popular with visitors to the town.
As Pete and Nicola left the church as man and wife they were greeted by a chimney sweep. An old British tradition is to have a chimney sweep present at the wedding for good luck. Pete’s parents arranged this, a tradition that they have adopted for their family. There must be some truth in this superstition as they have now been married for 45 years.
The reception was held at the Sandbanks Hotel where a drinks reception was held for the guests while they enjoyed the views towards Bournemouth in the east and Old Harry rocks to the west.
While we were waiting for the speeches to begin after the wedding breakfast we noticed a guest that was either very famous and didn’t want to be recognised or was very camera shy using a serviette to disguise his identity!!!!!!!!!!!!
While the room was prepared for the evening we spent some time on the beach with the bridal party. The beach had cleared by this time and the sea breeze was most welcome.
We would like to thank both families for their hospitality and friendliness, we were made to feel very welcome.
Pete and Nicola are enjoying the start of their honeymoon in Kenya before moving on to Mauritius. We look forward to seeing them on return from their honeymoon and wish them all the very best for their future together.
