A Vintage Wedding at Kings Hotel Christchurch – Ryan and Danni

A Vintage Wedding at Kings Hotel Christchurch – Ryan and Danni

Ryan and Danni got married at Christchurch Priory and then with the wedding reception at the Pavillion at Kings Hotel in Christchurch. I was once again starting with Groom preparations with Ryan at the nearby George pub (they do awesome burgers here). Whilst Tim was doing the hard job of photographing danni at the hotel. Christchurch priory is a stunning wedding venue and also has a cashpoint for donations, which always make me chuckle. Danni and her bridesmaids looked fabulous walking down the aisle, so much so that a random wedding guest decided to follow her down the aisle taking photos on her phone! After a fab service it was off for lawn games and pimms on the lawn of the Pavillion opposite Kings Hotel, it’s lovely here and was scorching hot so much was drank as a result. There was jenga, croquet, snakes and ladders and even bowling and a bean bag tossing game. Everyone was enjoying themselves a lot and luckily no-one got carried away with the giant balloons! I loved the attention to detail and all the button themes running throughout. It was very much a vintage button theme with proper buttonholes for all the guest through to the bunting, signage and individual postcards with scrabble name tags on. I was lucky enough to find one with my name on too! Danni also has some really cool wedding shoes with messages on the soles from the bridesmaids who all looked amazing! I mustn’t forget the giant letters with Danni’s and Ryans initials on too, they looked amazing too. The table setting were no less great. With napkins being put together with buttons again and there was also a raffle to end with. There were some great speeches too which went down very well. Thanks to Ryan and Danni for having me along for their vintage themed wedding, and thanks to Tim for having me along to help out – we’re the dorset dream team of photography.

Here’s a selection of my favourites from the day. Hope you enjoy!
