Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding - January/February 2024 (Issue 102)

Kimbridge Barn offered the relaxed atmosphere we wanted for our reception, with a range of spaces suiting different age groups. The venue is very picturesque and summer flowers were in full bloom at the front of the property. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. These lovebirds met at college through a mutual friend before discovering their shared personalities and sense of humour. Fast forward the years, Aaron proposed at home on Chelsea’s birthday. It was a surprise, although they had been together for a decade. Here the bride shares details about their special day… Our local parish church, Romsey Abbey, was the ideal setting for our ceremony. My bouquet included little charms that featured photos of my grandparents, including one of them on their wedding day. We had distinctive agate coasters for favours as well as activity packs to kept the children occupied with disposable cameras. 37 REAL WEDDINGS
