With autumn bringing rainy grey days and dark evenings, its lovely to look back at Claire and Dave’s bright, summertime wedding at Elmers Court. The New Forest venue has a lovely patio overlooking the long lawn down to the sea, and can host the wedding ceremony outside in the sun. It was only fitting that Claire strolled down the aisle to ‘I’m walking on Sunshine’. It all felt very Mediterranean, with spanish guitar, tie-less floral shirts and zingy orange accents. After the happy ceremony, friends and family enjoyed Pimms and canapes outside, as the kids raced around causing mischief. We had a quick stroll down to the deceptively long lawn for some photos overlooking the sea at Lymington, before everyone sat down for dinner. In the evening Claire and Dave did a brilliant first dance, and then everyone doce doed into the night to the ceilidh band.
Here’s some highlights from their fun and relaxed wedding, the perfect end to my 2010 summer season. The full gallery is online for friends and family here. Congratulations Claire and Dave!
Claire and Dave’s outdoors wedding was possible because the actual ceremony where the bride and groom stood took place under a fixed roof. Completely open air weddings are not lawful in England which is rubbish. If you think so too please support the Any campaign and sign the petition to legalise marriage anytime, anywhere.
