Your Wedding, Your Memories

Naomi & Phil Saturday 30th March 2013

9th April 2013 by Alan Schofield

Not every Bride gets to wear a veil that was worn by her Mother and Grandmother on her Wedding Day but that’s exactly what Naomi did last weekend.  Another rather special touch was the fur shawl she wore and a brooch on the boquet that belonged to her other Grandmother. The colour theme for their spring wedding was purple and yellow, just perfect for the time of year. The lucky groom was fellow teacher Phillip who along with his attendants looked very dapper in their grey tails with lemon coloured cravats and delicate purple buttonholes. After an emotional service at Christchurch in Braunton the guests travelled the short distance to the Sandy Cove Hotel whilst we took a trip to Woolacombe beach.  We headed down to the sea dodging the local surfers and  despite the freezing temperatures and gusty winds enjoyed a great 45 minutes in and around the rocks. As the sun shone down (making it look like a summers day!) the couple created their trademark giant heart on the sand which followed  the theme of the wedding featuring on the invitations and order of service sheets.

Back at the stunning Sandy Cove Hotel the group photos were taken on the lawns before the wedding breakfast and speeches, when the Best man made all the guests laugh at the Groom’s expense. During the short break before the evening party started we popped down to the nearby Watermouth Castle to make the most of the lovely weather that North Devon enjoyed over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

And the song  played for the first dance – Frank Sinatra’s  “It had to be you”…


This is what Naomi and Phil had to say about their special day…

“The coldest March in 50 years, a fantastic ceremony, a trip to the beach, a beautiful hotel, a truck load of Mini Eggs, dancing into the night and two teachers! Thank you so much to all our friends and family for making our day so perfect. Love Naomi & Phil”
