Luxme & Mark’s Indian Beach Wedding

At the end of our last season we had a beautiful Indian wedding at Beach Weddings Bournemouth. It was vibrant, fun and a fantastic wedding to be a part of and we wanted to share with you a bit about how their day worked with us.

We were so excited to work with Luxme and Mark. They first got in touch in December 2015 looking for a beach venue to hold their Asian wedding ceremony followed by a reception and we were the perfect venue for them.  Living in London, Luxme and Mark wanted their guests to travel to Bournemouth to spend the day with them.  We worked closely with the couple over the coming months to put together an incredible day’s celebrations for them.  The day started early with a Hindu ceremony on the beach which was the most incredible ceremony we have had the pleasure of hosting here – complete with Indian drums and all the customs of a Hindu ceremony. Even the staff dressed up for the occasion which we really loved to do.

Seeing all the guests, the Groom and then the Bride and her party arrive on to the beach was simply beautiful.  The Bride looked incredible and changed three times throughout the day. The colours of everyones’ outfits and the decorations throughout the marquee was just beautiful – so vibrant!   Their families had worked very hard to bring all the traditions of a Hindu ceremony to our beach venue and it looked amazing! The guests were given a relaxed typical Indian buffet breakfast of soya cutlets, deep fried patties stuffed with spiced cauliflower and almond croissants, tea and coffee and fresh juices throughout the morning ceremony.

After the ceremony our team worked hard to turn the ceremony marquee round very quickly for an Asian lunch for 200 guests.  Our Chefs had been busy in the kitchen prepping all week to produce an Asian buffet lunch of 4 curry dishes; aubergine brinjal, a la thel dala, snake bean curry, vegetable curry, cucumber salad, mango salad and rice accompanied with naan bread and poppadum’s and this was enjoyed in the main marquee and guests being able to sit in the breakout marquee on our outdoor furniture to enjoy their lunch in the sunshine.

Next, the guests enjoyed fun on the beach with games including cricket – even the Bride joined in!  Our ice cream trike was then open for guests to enjoy ice cream on the beach whilst we transformed the main marquee again for a more formal evening dinner.  Before the dinner, the celebrations took on more of an English turn with guests returning to the beach after changing and being greeted by a cocktail hour and canape reception with white sangria, Pimms and elderflower gin cocktails and goats cheese and caramelised onion, smoked salmon and lime aioli and confit of duck canapes.

When guests came in to be seated for dinner they were completely wowed by the way the room looked.  The colours throughout the tables were incredible.  Bright pinks, golds, oranges with Arcade Flowers working their usual amazing magic for our couple.  The dance floor had also arrived ready for the evening entertainment and the bar was open for the evening celebrations. Guests were then truly looked after with our traditional fish and chips menu complete with the trimmings of jars of pickled quail eggs, cornichons and pickled onions on the tables and desserts flowed after the main course too.  Champagne was then served before speeches and cake cutting and dancing late into the night.

picmonkey-collage-lumThis was our first Asian wedding at the beach and the whole team worked really hard to ensure that Luxme and Mark had the most incredible day and we really enjoyed seeing this all come together.  We hope do host many more Asian weddings in the future.

This is what the couple said about their wedding day with us:

“We had the most AMAZING wedding with beach weddings Bournemouth. We had a Hindu ceremony in the morning followed with an Asian lunch, cocktail reception and dinner with a spot of beach cricket. The venue was perfect, and the team throughout the wedding planning process and on the day were extremely attentive and thoughtful. They were always willing to help and provided brilliant ideas. We have had wonderful comments from our friends and family and will fondly remember the day for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much, Luxme and Mark xxx”

The Beach Weddings Bournemouth team all wanted to get in the spirit of it too so we all wore vibrant sari’s. We wish them all the best in their future together, it was such a pleasure to be a part of their wedding !! xx

Umbrella Styles

Now, the first question we always get asked by couples looking into having a beach wedding with us is… ‘But what about the weather? Won’t the day be ruined if it rains?’ Your day will absolutely not be ruined in any way, shape or form! Last summer one couple who got married with us, it rained all day. However, this is what they said about their special day – “It was absolutely amazing from start to finish and the best day – despite the weather we had some beautiful pictures and the girls were all amazing. It just goes to show a bit of wind and rain can’t spoil a Beach Weddings Bournemouth day!”

But if you are still worried, then maybe invest in some wedding umbrellas as a back up. There are some beautiful options available and we think they create some really great photo opportunities, whether its to provide cover from the rain or provide shade from the sun. Umbrellas can be fantastic for parasols too. We do have a few of our own that we keep on the wedding hut but if you would like to buy your own or would like some to match your styling then there are some ideas from you below.

This beautiful shot is one of our couples who had a wonderfully sunny day so used a lace parasol- I think you’ll agree that the addition of the umbrella really makes the photo.

Lace parasol- fabulous for a vintage theme but would suit any theme. Lace parasols are very romantic and look wonderful in photos. You might be busy worrying about the rain but don’t forget the sun does come out during the summer! You might need a parasol to keep the sun off of you if it is sunny as otherwise you may get quite hot in your wedding dress.

When Nadia and Saabe married with us they were expecting a rainy day so brought this lovely umbrella with them – then the sun shone down on them for their gorgeous beach ceremony!

Here are some of our favourites : –

Pretty white with ruffles- we have some very similar to this. White always looks very beautiful and romantic.

1.

Very stylish and vintage with stripes and spots

2.

A beautiful pagoda umbrella which comes in lots of different colours so you’ll be sure to find one that matches your theme! Umbrellas or parasols and be great for a splash of colour in your photos too.

3.

Love this- very romantic but subtle with the heart shaped petals sprinkled across the umbrella

4.

We also have a couple of these umbrellas at Beach Weddings Bournemouth- they really are very beautiful and will suit any style wedding

5.

Beautiful paper parasol with Chinese style detailing- this is a beautiful romantic addition to a wedding

6. 7.             

A little bit of fun – One of our brides with her bridesmaids with their heart shaped umbrellas- these come in lots of colours- a red or pink one would look really fun!

We can’t wait to see some fabulous photos with umbrellas used as props this year. x

Spring Wedding Inspiration

We are not quite sure how we have already reached March…but it means one thing…it’s spring! We can’t wait for our 2016 season to begin in April- we have lots of lovely and excited couples who are busy planning their special day with us. We have put together some spring wedding inspiration, for people getting in married in March, April or May this year.

We really love soft colours at the beach- pink and blues look stunning against the sea and all pastel colours work really well.

Here are a few of the gorgeous looks we had at the beach over our past seasons.

If you are looking for some unique ideas for your spring wedding, have a read of these:

  • A tea length dress is a lovely choice for the Bride for the season
  • Colour co-ordination- we love the idea of the Groom’s bow tie matching the Bride’s bouquet
  • Lightweight chiffon dresses for the Bridesmaids will ensure they are kept cool
  • We love floral headpieces for flower girls!
  • Decorate our driftwood arch with wildflowers
  • Colourful cushions for the seats for the ceremony add a lovely touch
  • A vintage birdcage makes a lovely card and gift holder
  • Homemade lemonade is a perfect drink for your drinks reception- or Elderflower Collins for a cocktail option
