Megie and Matthew’s Purple and Green Dots Wedding Planned in 2 Months. By Paul Underhill

Sometimes us bloggers get told that we are all about the details, that we don’t want to feature a wedding unless it is dripping in prettiness and stuffed with amazing details. Now I am the first to admit I love a detailed wedding, I love seeing all the DIY bits and bobs the bride and her family have put together and how they have made the wedding their own. BUT I also love to see the emotion, the love between the couple getting married, their friends and family enjoying the day with them, and photography that captures that emotion and those special moments. After the actual wedding, the marriage that it produces is surely THE most important aspect of the day…right? So today I bring you a wedding FULL of emotion and special moments. When a wedding is planned in just two months then you know it is going to be more about the couple and this wedding is brimming with smiles, laughter, candied moments and some of the most amazing children ever! Thanks to Paul Underhill

‘Borderline chaos, but a really great day!’

Megie and Matthew were married on 9th May at Bournemouth Registry Office (The Willows) with the reception at The St Swithuns Centre. ‘It was closest venue we cold find to our family and guests. We had 50 guests and it took 2 months to plan.’

How they met
We met 7 years ago when Megie worked in a milkshake bar and I was mall security.

The proposal
It was at the bottom of our garden, nothing to extravagant I’m afraid!

Why did you choose your photographer?
It was a long process of looking through all the Dorset based photographers’ websites and looking through their work. We chose Paul because his pictures seemed the most creative and sincere. Some people seem to have a knack for capturing moments.

The dress
The dress was tea length and the style was Danbury blue by Enzoani. The shoes were green Fresh Cut Grass by Irregular choice and bracelets were kindly borrowed from Kirsty the bridesmaid.

Theme or colour scheme
Purple and green dots was the order of the day.

Decoration
We had seaside themed table decorations including buckets of sand and shells. There were also balloons and flowers.

Personal / DIY touches?
• The table flowers were put together by the brides aunty.
• The centre pieces, place cards and table plan were made by the bride and her ever helpful bridesmaids Katie and Kirsty.
• The reception was set up in the morning by the groom and his family who did a marvellous job!
• The rings were designed by the bride and responsibility was handed to Kirsty (who works as a jeweller) to have them made.

Special moments
Having all of our family and friends in the same room was pretty special. It was lovely that a lot of people had travelled quite far to be with us on the day.

Advice
Be as organised as possible and don’t feel bad about asking people to help with arrangements. It will save a lot of time and worry.

Biggest surprise
Checking the weather and seeing weather warnings for high winds, it was quite a blustery day!

    What a gorgeous wedding and wow how right can you be about the photographer capturing the moment and emotion – just beautiful! It also goes to show you do not need years of planning and endless pots of money to have a perfect and magical day!
