Wimborne Minster & The Royal Bath Hotel Bournemouth
April has certainly been the month of showers, we had our fingers crossed for Joanne and Marcus that their wedding wouldn’t be interrupted by them. The rehearsal for the wedding was the night before the wedding and as we made our way there the was a hail storm which almost looked like snow on the ground! We like to attend rehearsal as we get the chance to meet other members of the family and bridal party.
The wedding day arrived and we made our way to Joanne’s parents home for the preparations. Joanne was out at the hairdresser and everything was laid out for us as planned in one room so that we were able to get on. Joanne and her Mum returned home with just make-up to do and shortly afterwards her Mum was helping her into her stunning wedding dress from Special Occasions. As everyone else was finishing their preparations we had some time alone with Joanne for some bridal portraits which was followed by photos with the family and bridesmaids. We left for the church allowing Joanne time for those last-minute tweaks and some time with those close to her.
Time flies on a wedding day and after capturing the grooms arrival and photos with his Ushers and family it was time for Joanne’s arrival. She looked stunning and after a few moments was ready to walk up the aisle to meet Marcus who was nervously waiting for her.
The ceremony was personalised with a couple of readings and with the vows made, rings exchanged and registers signed the newly married couple made their way back down the aisle to the church door. During the service there had been a quick shower but for now it was a little breezy and chilly. The group photos were taken quickly and the confetti thrown before the couple left for the beach.
Joanne and Marcus had wanted to go to the beach for their photos but as it was cold and windy we all agreed to go for just a couple of beach shots. However we arrived to find it totally different to the weather in Wimborne, the sun was shining and it felt quite warm and made use of this time to get some great shots.
Joanne and Marcus rejoined their guests at the Royal Bath Hotel for the wedding celebrations and we stayed to cover the speeches and first dance. A bonus was a beautiful sunset which the couple had been hoping for. Someone special was up there looking down on them making sure that everything was just as they hoped for.
We wish Joanne and Marcus all the very best for their future together and look forward to seeing them again when they return from honeymoon. We would also like to thank everyone for their hospitality.
