Harbour Heights Hotel Wedding Photos of Bridal Preparation

We arrived in the morning to find Katy, her mum and bridesmaids going about the business of a wedding morning. Katy’s beautiful lace detailed dress hung in an upstairs window alongside three blue bridesmaid dresses illuminated in the breaking sunlight.

Katy was in a zone of calm, taking in the mornings activities and enjoying the proceedings.

Louise from Loulabelle was on hand help the ladies with hair and makeup and before Katy got into her dress. She had a present from Matt, a gorgeous diamond earrings and necklace set from Why Jewellers. There was another stunning arrival from Simply Flower, bouquets of Pastel Pink and Yellow roses.

Wedding Photographs of Wedding Breakfast and Speeches

All the guests were in their places and the new Mr and Mrs were announced as they entered the Hytes suite. The whole room including the ceiling had been covered in drapes, which gave the room a marquee feeling. First of all the father of the bride delivered his speech followed in turn by groom and best man.  All of the speeches had the guests in fits of laughter with barely a dry eye in the room.
