Chelsea & Tristan’s beautiful wedding at The Italian Villa in Poole (Dorset)
The day began with Chelsea & her Mother, Brother and Bridesmaid at the Harbour Heights Hotel in Poole a mere stones throw from the beautiful wedding venue. Bridal prep was running on time and so relaxed, we had such a great view to the sea from the balcony. Although some sunny spells in the morning the day was overcast with some spells of thick fog, this didn’t put a dampener on anything at all the day was truly amazing!
After preparations I stayed to see the first look of Chelsea’s Father of his Daughter, such a lovely moment on any wedding day. I arrived at the Italian Villa to greet Tristan who looked incredibly sharp in his Army Dress Blues; he was really relaxed and even managing to crack jokes with his groomsmen and family. Tristan’s look back to see the beautiful Chelsea walking toward him with her Farther’s arm was a lovely one, a cheeky grin and the look of love in his eyes.
Post ceremony it was off outside with the guests for a confetti welcome at the rear of the beautiful venue into the gardens for drinks reception and mingling; so many smiles! Incredible gardens, photo-opportunities were everywhere!
During the wedding breakfast I decided to go for a wander around the rest of the gardens, absolutely incredible walk! For the Bride and Groom portrait we made our way over to the Japanese gardens, such a highlight for me seeing Chelsea brave the stepping stones in high heels to get into the stunning Japanese water hut. Believe me, that water was deep and cold!! Such a breathtaking place, koi carp, stunning bushes and shrubs; I was so blown away.
It seemed like no time at all and we were into the night celebrations and dancing the night away and what an incredible celebration it was – those dance floor pictures!
