In May, I had the pleasure of photographing Claire and Lee`s wedding, held at Sopley Mill in Christchurch, (near Bournemouth) Dorset. Their wedding involved a lot of lovely hand-made styling, picnic baskets full of really sumptuous artisan food and some really amazing music. There were lots of really interesting elements to their day including sack races and a `flash mob` barbershop quartet-sang first dance.
The wedding ceremony was held in the spacious room on the middle floor of Sopley Mill while the picnic wedding breakfast was easily transported indoor or out, weather depending. In the end, the breakfast was held in the top room of the mill which had been decked to perfection with so many amazing details.
All the `down time` was taken in the Sopley Mill grounds – the sack races, `selfie frame`, first dance and drinks reception.
The Mill itself is intriguing, spacious, easily decorated and unique. If you are planning your wedding in Bournemouth, a Sopley Mill wedding is for you!
