East Close Country Hotel Wedding for Helen and Mark
We first met Helen when she was a Bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding and were delighted when she asked us to be her wedding photographers. This time her sister Jenny was to be one her bridesmaids (matron of honour sounds so dated!) and her brothers Thomas and David were to be Ushers as they were at Jenny and Steve’s wedding, it was great catching up with everyone again.
Todays ceremony and celebrations were being held at the East Close Country Hotel. Helen had been out to Toni and Guy in Christchurch for hair styling where we met her briefly before going on to the hotel for some shots of the dress and accessories. Helen returned to the hotel and with a few finishing touches to her make-up was keen to get into her stunning Mia Solano dress from Prettymades in Wimborne, she looked amazing.
Mark arrived with his brother Kevin who was Bestman and the two ushers for some pre wedding photos and to greet the wedding guests ahead of the ceremony.
The ceremony was personalised with a couple of readings and Helen and Mark made their declarations, promises, exchanged rings and sealed it all with the kiss and the signing of the registers.
The guests joined the new Mr & Mrs in the gardens for some photos, drinks and confetti throw, although it was a little windy and cold everyone joined in. We slipped away with the couple for a short while for some photos around the grounds before returning them for a greeting line into the wedding breakfast. The room looked great decorated with flowers from Jasmine Flower Design who had also supplied the beautiful bouquets.
The evenings entertainment was supplied by Absolute Fun Casino and a disco from 3D entertainments, as everyone was trying their hand at the casino building up enough courage to take to the dancefloor we slipped away for a few night time photos.
We wish Helen and Mark all the very best for their future together and we would like to thank them and their families for their hospitality. We are busy preparing their images from the day so while we are doing this we hope you enjoy these few images.
