The sunshine is back!! And I’m so happy to say we have a gloriously sunny July beach wedding on the blog for you today. I love this so much – gorgeous couple Michelle and Dan were married at Tunnels Beaches and their beautiful day just sings of summer! The styling touches are perfect – there are wonderful summer wildflowers, as well as ice creams, proper old school striped deckchairs and a showstopper of a wedding cake! My brilliantly talented friend and Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad captured the whole day for the happy couple, who have given him a fantastic review below! Enjoy the blog today… I know I will!
Tucked away on the edge of the beautiful village of Cranborne in Dorset, set back far enough from the road that it becomes a treasure, a beguiling location, is 10 Castle Street. The name is wonderfully deceiving – while there’s definitely a Castle Street running through the village, and the venue’s driveway leads from it, this is no run-of-the-mill residence. Number 10 Castle Street is a fabulously quirky and charismatic wedding venue, available for wedding hire and perfectly suited to an eclectic, elegant modern wedding.
Matching your wedding style to your venue can be easy when you have a blank canvas (a marquee or a purpose-built venue) but when you’re marrying at a stately home or boutique hotel it’s easy to confuse styles. I always encourage couples to consider the style of their venue when making decisions on wedding decor: a boho look won’t work in a modern hotel, just as a classic wedding dress can look out of place in a field at a festival wedding. Stately homes are our classic venue choice, but how can you make sure your styling options aren’t limited?
