ME­GAN BUR­NETT AND PAUL WOODFINE-JONES WED ON 1ST APRIL 2017 AT STUD­LAND BAY HOUSE, DORSET

“Paul’s surprise pro­posal came in 2016, when we were vis­it­ing the Pig on the Beach Ho­tel in Dorset. We fell in love with this beau­ti­ful cor­ner of the world, so when it came to choos­ing a venue for the wed­ding, the nearby Stud­land Bay House was per­fect in ev­ery way. We loved the fact that it was near the coast, with fan­tas­tic views of the sea, and there were nine dou­ble bed­rooms for all our fam­ily to stay in. The gar­den was scat­tered with pine trees which re­minded me of Por­tu­gal (where my mother is from).

Al­though we didn’t have a theme as such, I wanted the look to be quite clas­sic but ac­cented with colour­ful details. We used lots of fairy lights, had han­dem­broi­dered um­brel­las float­ing from the ceil­ing, confetti-filled bal­loons tied to the chairs and bright flow­ers on the ta­bles.

We did quite a lot our­selves, in­clud­ing the naked wed­ding cake with ed­i­ble flow­ers, which we dis­played on a tree slice that Paul’s fa­ther had cut down and sanded him­self. As a nod to my her­itage, we gave out Port wine favours which were from a friend who owns a vine­yard in Por­tu­gal, and my sis­ter chalked-up our ta­ble plan and dis­played it on an easel.

Our cer­e­mony was at the lo­cal church in Stud­land – St Ni­co­las. It’s a very old church and just beau­ti­ful in­side. My sis­ter read The Fu­ture by Emma Sal­mon, which was a re­ally emo­tional mo­ment. We loved ev­ery­thing about our day, and the stun­ning sea views made it feel like a hol­i­day!
