Nicky and Dan's wedding at Compton Acres Italian Villa was our second visit to this stunning venue in 2009 and Teri and I are already booked to photograph at the Dorset wedding venue in 2010. As one of Compton Acres recommended photographers we have photographed there many times and it still remains one of our favourite wedding venues. The team at Compton Acres (Laura!) job and Beales catering always do a great job :)
In the morning Teri hooked up with Nicky getting ready at her parents and I met Dan and the guys at the New Beehive in Canford Cliffs (a pub that is within walking distance!). As always the Poole registrars were relaxed and the ceremony was one of the most relaxed and fun of the year. Just after the ceremony we sneaked Nicky and Dan into the Japanese Gardens for some quick romantic alone photographs. The requested group shots were taken as they fitted in with the day, great advantage to having the ceremony and reception at the same venue is you have total flexibility to fit in any photography as the day naturally unfolds.
We always say to couples, it's not just about picking a great venue, a great wedding is about the couple, their families and friends and the joy of sharing their wedding with them. Nicky and Dan's day was perfect, really lovely couple and a pleasure for Teri and I to be part of their day.
Many Congratulations Nicky and Dan!! :)
