Wedding in Poole at Harbour Heights Hotel

Whilst the world turned its eye to the big royal wedding we had more important matters to attend to at a Wedding in Poole at Harbour Heights Hotel. Darrin and Karen are a welcoming, friendly couple of very different proportions. They live in Poole, Dorset with two gorgeous children, Charlie and Tom (great name!) and a cat called Dave!

In all the years we have been taking photographs we have never seen anyone so calm and relaxed in the weeks before their wedding. If it wasn’t for the occasional list and strategically placed post-it note around the house you wouldn’t have known what these two were planning.

So whilst the world’s attention was drawn to Westminster Abbey we headed over to Harbour Heights Hotel in Poole We circumvented the multitude of street parties to find that the wedding nerves had finally arrived. I don’t think Darrin or Karen had been able to eat much that morning. A few words of wisdom and a couple of glasses of champers later and they were back into the happy flow of the day.

Wedding Reception in Poole at Harbour Heights Hotel

Karen’s stunning dress had been made by her good friend Teresa Williams. Who we hope fulfils her dream of supplying more brides with beautiful couture gowns. The sea of tasty cupcakes had been made by Darrin’s mother and sister.

Wedding Evening in Poole at Harbour Heights Hotel

To finish a great day full of love Darrin and Karen had learnt a choreographed routine to Sinatra’s ‘Fly me to the moon’. They executed it perfectly to the whoops of awe from their guests. They then did away with the ‘traditional’ wedding cheesy music and opted for some floor filling uplifting dance tracks. It was great to see everyone dancing the night away with a smile on their face.
