Bridal Preparation Before Harbour Heights Hotel Outdoor Wedding
Murray and I arrived at Lianne’s mothers’ house on the morning of her Harbour Heights Hotel outdoor wedding. Lianne had warned us that her mad Dalmatian would be there to greet us and sure enough she was, all waggy tail and licks. Lianne, her mother and bridesmaid had their hair styled using the large mirror over the fire place.
As the girls relaxed morning sunshine beamed through the large window from the garden. With hair and make up completed the three ladies and I headed to the hotel, driven by Lianne herself!. At Harbour Heights Hotel Lianne’s mother helped her with her gorgeous corset backed wedding gown complete with lace detail. Pastel pink roses and white lilys were delivered which perfectly complemented both the bride and bridesmaid’s dresses.

At the couples flat in Poole Murray found Adam, his best man and usher calmly going about their business. Shirts ironed, rings checked even cravats were tied with no need for the usual You Tube videos. They even had time for a beer as they made their way to the Range Rover waiting for them outside. An aqua ribbon bow adorned the grill of the Range Rover matching the gent cravats and handkerchiefs. While they drove off to Harbour Heights wedding venue Murray hurried to arrive first.
Harbour Heights Hotel Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Photographs
Once at Harbour Heights Hotel wedding venue the gents had a chance to see the outdoor wedding ceremony space. The terrace was beautifully decorated with Aqua coloured ribbons and wedding bubbles on the chairs. The chaps welcomed guests and enjoyed the view over Poole harbour. With the guests in place and the registrars in position Adam and his best man awaited his bride. Her bridesmaid led the way in an aqua green Grecian dress followed by a breathtaking Lianne holding onto her father’s arm. The terrace was full of smiles and laughter as the wedding party enjoyed some late September sun. After short reading from Lianne’s mother and another guess the couple exchanged rings and made their promises to each other. The new husband and wife walked back down the aisle through a curtain of wedding bubbles.

After the Harbour Heights Hotel outdoor wedding ceremony activities moved into the Hytes suite. Beautifully decorated with aqua chair sashes and simple beach detail styled candle centerpieces. At one end of the top table a beautiful three tiered wedding cake from Sweet Serenity stood. Atop the cake a custom cake topper of the newlyweds both clasping rowing oars. Soon all the wedding guests had taken their places and were ready to receive the new Mr and Mrs into the room. Lianne’s father kicked off the speeches followed by her bridesmaid and her new husband. Last up was the best man who’s speech which was highly entertaining and drew great reactions from the guests.
Evening Entertainment at Harbour Heights Hotel Wedding
After the wedding breakfast the guests were able to enjoy one of the last fantastic summer’s evenings on the private terrace. We took the newlyweds down to the beach for some photos with the sun setting behind them. On our return we found the guests still enjoying the terrace as the music for the evening was being set up by Southern Entertainment Services. Concluding the evening’s events was cutting the cake and first dance. Firstly the cake took center stage, once cut it was the turn of the new Mrs and Mrs to take their first dance as husband and wife. They had the dance floor to themselves for a short time while others took photos.
