There was a flurry of activity from the moment I arrived at the hotel, with seven girls to get ready, that really was not surprising! Things went like clockwork though and Tracey and her bridesmaids were ready bang on time. Tracey looked stunning in her strapless Soterro and Midgely gown and perfectly coiffured up do with sparkly slide. Her full length veil completing the ensemble. Tracey's bridemaids looked elegant in their mint green chiffon gowns. Soon it was ready to leave.
Whilst I had been photographing the bridal preps, Alan had been busy with Craig and the boys at Highcliffe Castle. They all looked handsome in their grey morning suits and cream and mint green accessories.
Photos were taken of Tracey's arrival and it was time for an emotional and personal ceremony for this beautiful couple before heading outside for some photos in the grounds.
Tracy and Craig had arranged for an old London Routemaster bus to take their guests to The Sandbanks Hotel for the reception. Alan and I and the newly weds took a slight detour to Evening Hill before heading off to the reception. Speeches done, meal eaten, we dodged the showers and headed off to the beach for some gorgeous bridal portraits and a toss of the bouquet. The evening reception started with the arrival of their live band, a balloon modeller and their first dance.
Tracey and Craig head off to Mexico on Tuesday, we wish them a wonderful honeymoon and a happy life together.
We hope you all enjoy the photographs and we would be grateful if you could leave a comment! Donna and Alan XXX
