Wedding at the Chine Hotel Bournemouth
The weather has changed and in the week leading up to Lisa and Marco’s wedding it has been pretty awful. We were all quite optimistic that it would be fine and that the worst had passed.
We arrived at the hotel to find the bridal party preparations well under way with hair and make-up. Lisa’s hotel room had a balcony and the view over the coastline was glorious, it looked like the day was going to turn out being fine and that we would be able to get down to the beach after the ceremony.
Marco, his brothers the Best men, the Ushers and Luca (Marco’s son) looked really smart although a little nervous met us for a few photos before greeting the guests and taking their place in the ceremony room, the Pineview Ballroom.
The ceremony finished a little different to most with Luca handcuffing the couple together, a nice little touch that Luca wanted to include but we were all relieved to see that a key was to hand!
The weather was nice enough for the drinks reception to be held outside while the formal group photos were taken. After which we slipped away with the wedding party for some photos in the lower garden and then down to the beach. It was a lovely warm sunny afternoon and we could have stayed down there for ages.
Lisa wanted a photo by beach hut number 2519 which held many happy memories for her. We almost lost the Bride and Groom amongst the runners from the Bournemouth Marathon Festival. The number of runners that were shouting out words of congratulations was amazing and added to the day!
So back to the hotel for the wedding breakfast, cake cut and speeches to conclude with the last of the formalities before the evening celebrations begun.
Another great day at the Chine Hotel and as always thanks to all the staff for their help and assistance in making everyone feel so welcome.
We would like to thank Lisa and Marco for their hospitality and wish them all the very best for their future together.
