The ceremony room at The Sandbanks Hotel was beautifully decorated and the panoramic windows offered the loveliest view of the beach.

After taking a vintage bus and a ferry, wedding guests arrived at Shell Bay Restaurant to enjoy the rest of the wedding day. Shell Bay Restaurant is located in Studland, just a few minutes walk from the ferry. It has the most stunning views and it’s very easy to see why Kim & Matt chose it for their special day!

After Kim & Matt’s first dance, there was a surprise appearance from some Oompah Loompahs – one of our more unusual requests, it has to be said! Cue many selfies with them!

Guests also enjoyed listening to saxophonist Vicky Barents, a casino from Viva Las Vegas, caricaturist Danny Byrne and a photo booth from The Photo Booth Bournemouth.

Kim & Matt chose to have a wedding cake in the shape of their cute pug, Billy. Hayley at Sweetcheeks Bakehouse certainly had her work cut out for her with this one but she did an amazing job and everyone thought it was an ornament rather than a wedding cake!

Kim & Matt’s invitations and wedding stationery also featured Billy and was created by Jellicoe Creative Wedding Stationery.

Guests enjoyed the mild weather late into the evening with much dancing, drinking and enjoyment! The band was The Alibi Band and the DJ was The Ultimate Disco.
