Wedding package: Full wedding planning
Wedding venue: The Sandbanks Hotel for the ceremony, Shell Bay Restaurant for the reception
From the couple: “Sam the legend is how she is known in the Hawkins household. We had some crazy ideas for our wedding weekend and Sam at South Coast Weddings made our dreams possible! Nothing is too much trouble and Sam takes away the stress so you can just get on and enjoy your day. Would 110% recommend Sam as your wedding planner!” A very happy Mr & Mrs H

What we did: Kim are Matt were both very busy professionals. Matt running his own successful business and Kim, a high-pressured sales job. This left little time for them to put into action what they wanted for their wedding. Cue our meeting in a Canford Cliffs pub over some wine.

They both knew what they liked and had picked a colour scheme and some fun elements for their day. They just needed someone to implement the plan and bring it all together.

They were such a lovely couple to work with and were happy for us to make decisions on their behalf. We also planned a festival party for the day after their wedding, so they could extend their time with their guests.

Their wedding ceremony was at The Sandbanks Hotel with their reception being held across at Shell Bay Restaurant. Guests hopped on a vintage double decker bus that took them to the chain ferry and once they were across the water, it was a very short walk to the restaurant.

There was a prosecco van to greet guests and evening entertainment included a photobooth, DJ, Band, Saxophonist, Casino Tables and Oompa Loompas…obviously! 

The festival party, the day after the wedding, included massages (for those sore heads or feet), glitter face painting, bands, festival food and a silent disco.
