John and Martin had a wonderful same sex wedding at Dorset’s Kingston Country Courtyard and oh what a day! I have never seen the courtyard looking quite like it did on this, their wedding day. The Courtyard usually kept bare for people to just hang out in and let me get a group photo in was full. As an extra room in the Venue, John and Martin arranged for a marque to be installed and I have to say this worked incredibly well, not only expanding the capacity of the venue somewhat but also let the main barn be decorated for the ceremony and reception without the rush of the usual turn around time, although it has to be said Bobbie handles this with ease. Home-made buttonholes we handed out to everyone at the wedding which was a lovely sentiment and made all the guests feel a part of the wedding party.
Blessed with a lovely day of weather we managed quite a few photographs without interfering with the flow of the wedding too much. John and Martin managed the perfect wedding with all the personality of their bond together. I particularly loved the attention to the children’s table, often an afterthought, which had a bespoke tablecloth which was a giant colouring in paper and a separate cake for them with a stash of Smarties inside! Check out the kid’s expression below when they saw it cut!
A first for me was the first dance, I have never seen the Hokey Cokey as a first dance and after nearly getting trampled to death once my childhood memories of the central scrum returned to me I ran for a higher vantage point, I’m sure you’ll agree it was a resounding success!
