We took a short trip across town to the Marriott Highcliff to find Louise in a suite overlooking the sea with her bridesmaids and the preparations well under way.
The weather in the week leading up to the wedding hadn’t been great with grey skies and rain but it had broken just in time for Paul and Louise’s wedding. It was now bright and warm with a lovely blue sky although a touch breezy.
After capturing the girls preparations we headed off to the gardens with Paul, his three best men and the ushers who all looked really smart in their suits. Paul headed off to see the registrar and we returned to Louise to capture those last minute preparations.
The girls entered a crowded ceremony room with perfect timing. The youngest bridesmaids scattered petals down the aisle and everyone turned for Louise’s entrance.
With the formalities over and just before the couple took their first steps as husband and wife the guests were treated to an unusual version of ‘all you need is love’ by Clare Manners and friends.
A drinks reception in the gardens was followed by the formal group photographs. We spent some time with the couple at the far end of the garden overlooking the sea before they headed off to greet their guests to the wedding breakfast.
Paul and Louise were keen to have some photographs on the beach and with the wedding breakfast and speeches over we headed off for some special time with them. We welcomed the cool air, it was quite breezy by this time which added some great drama to some of the images.
Louise and Paul had a short while to freshen up and put on their dancing shoes before their evening guests arrived.
The evening started with a Rat Pack tribute act to which the couple performed their first dance, which was very impressive before going into a disco and then to a Robbie Williams tribute. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening – a great success.
Paul and Louise put a lot into their wedding, the organisation and planning was impeccable and it paid off.
We hope you enjoy these few images that we have chosen and we’ve got just a few more to show Paul and Louise on their return from honeymoon.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul and Louise for their hospitality and making us feel welcome and for the co-operation and friendliness of everyone at the wedding.
We wish Paul, Louise and their family all the very best for their future together.
