Both the ceremony and reception were at the Miramar Hotel in Bournemouth, there was a festive Christmas theme with candles which worked really well with the colours Jenny and Darren had chosen.
Normally the weather is the weather and everyone has a great time no matter, winter weddings are often dry but this was a warm day as well as having a blue sky in December, perfect! :)
Morning was spent with Teri going over to visit with the bridal party at Salon 1336 in Parkstone while I met up with the guys at the hotel.
We knew Jenny and Darren definitely wanted to use the beach for some of the wedding images so we all jumped into the wedding car directly after the ceremony. Daylight is always at a premium for winter weddings so we didn't spent long at the beach just enough to get some cool pics then back to the hotel to warm up.
Music was a large part of the day, Jenny herself plays in a Dorset based string quartet Bravado String Quartet and 3 members of her quartet (plus a stand in!) played throughout the wedding day. The musical theme went right through to Jenny's dads band playing at the reception, we loved the live music and the fact that everyone playing was a friend of Jenny and Darrens made it even more special.
Quick shout also to Alex and Paula the videographers at Jenny and Darren's Miramar Beach Wedding in Bournemouth, they were a pleasure to work with Wedding Videographers in Bournemouth :)
