Paula and Ray’s Wedding at The Guildhall and Harbour Heights Hotel, Poole, Dorset
Wedding Service Providers
Paula and Ray married on what was probably the wettest day of the year!
Paula was getting ready at the Harbour Heights Hotel. Throughout the preparations we all had our eyes on the weather and were hoping that it would brighten up as the day went on.
Paula looked amazing, she would certainly brighten up the day.
Over at the Guildhall we found Ray and the guests taking cover from the rain and having a quick drink to steady the nerves in The Angel Pub! The rain was not letting up so after a few photos of the Groom in the ceremony room we waited armed with umbrellas for the arrival of the Bride.
After the ceremony it was quick dash to the car, unfortunately the weather was that bad that we couldn’t do the usual shot of everyone on the Guildhall steps and we also had to forget the planned stop off at the beach and head straight for the Harbour Heights for the drinks reception and photos inside.
During the wedding breakfast Paula had planned singing waiters as a surprise for Ray. No one suspected anything and as they burst into song there were some amazed faces and soon everyone was joining in with the entertainment. It’s a really nice way to get everyone involved especially after they’ve had a drink or two!
It is a shame when the weather isn’t what the Bride and Groom hope for and you would expect it to be fine in July. It’s even more disappointing when the day either side is lovely as it was in this case, However, Paula and Ray enjoyed their day and made the most of it celebrating with family and friends. Paula will also have the opportunity of wearing her dress again ( not many Brides get to do this) as we are planning a photo shoot on the beach with them as Paula so wanted to do this.
We wish Paula and Ray all the very best for their future together. The following link will take you directly to their online galleries within our client area where you will find all of the images from the day. You will need the password provided in order to access the galleries.
