Bride and groom shot through the candles at Lulworth Castle in Dorset. Weddings in Dorset.

Roll out the red carpet, this was a wedding I was seriously excited about. It involved a castle, a smoking-hot bride and groom and some seriously fashionable people. The castle was Lulworth Castle on the Dorset coast, with the church, St Andrew’s, in the grounds of the estate. An incredible, stately venue with a phenomenal team of staff who pulled out all the stops to ensure Jasmine and James had THE best day.

I started the day at nearby hotel, Limestone where Jasmine was getting ready with her four bridesmaids and tiddly two-year old Olive, her flower girl. Jasmine, a fashion graduate, works for everyone’s favourite swimwear designer Melissa Odabash and as you might expect, she has very good taste. Her bridesmaids looked divine in peach, whilst she was exquisite in a Pronovias gown and Stella McCartney heels. She also has a love of candles and they were literally everywhere, with rose gold vases (to match her jewellery) and a very sophisticated mirrored seating plan. Take note would-be brides!

James speech was very funny, he recounted how Jasmine’s parents had put him to the test by asking him to rebuild a drawer unit in the kitchen. He nailed it (sorry) and affirmed his place in the family as a result.

Jasmine’s father is Indian and there was a strong cultural theme running through with a henna party the day before, Indian drumming (a great build up to the first dance that also featured a confetti canon!) and then a brilliant battle-of-the-sexes Bollywood dance off. Some serious dancefloor action ensued from other guests too.  That fashion lot certainly know how to party!

Jasmine and James, what fun it was, thank you for having me.
