Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding - July/August 2020 (Issue 81)

R FOR RODEO BULL A rodeo bull is great fun for an outdoor reception and makes for some smashing photos, like this one taken at Kelly and Daniel Cartwright’s Hampshire wedding! Visit TOP TIP “Always check out your chosen band live before booking. Fancy videos, awards and accreditations mean nothing if they can’t get a party started.” – Kevin Jackson, S FOR SWEETS A sweet cart will keep guests of all ages happy and makes a fab addition to the venue décor too. Visit the website T FOR TRIO Dorset-based acoustic trio The Royal T’s offers fabulous three-part harmony vocals and a winning song list, sure to keep your loved ones on their feet. Great as a mobile acoustic act or as a full- blown party band with drums, double bass and electric guitar. U FOR UMBRELLAS Don’t let the weather spoil your fun. Have a few brollies to hand so rain doesn’t stop play, like Laura and Sam whose lovely wedding at Dorset’s Parley Manor is featured on page 39 this issue. V FOR VOCALIST A professional singer can work wonders at all stages of the day, interacting with your guests and creating a buzz. Southampton-based Katy Kelly is a versatile vocalist with a long-standing singing career. Her wide experience means she can cater for a range of different musical tastes from the 1920s to latest hits to suit your big-day style and theme. Check out W FOR WHEEL A Ferris wheel that is! Enjoy all the fun of the fair on your big day and be sure of plenty of fabulous photos. Hire a ferris wheel or other fairground rides, with candy floss and coconut stalls to make your day one to remember. Z X FOR X-CITEMENT Build up the fun-factor with unexpected surprises like a fireworks finale, singing waiters, a rap or flash mob routine. To really impress, you and your best girls could even book a class to practise some moves as a fun hen-party activity. FOR ZONE A chill-out zone is a great idea for those that want time out from the hurly burly to chat and relax. A kiddies’ corner can also be a godsend for parents looking to cut some shapes on the dancefloor. You could even hire a professional child-minder or book a crèche to keep the little ones safe and happy for hours! Check out Y FOR YAWN If it’s getting late and it’s time to go, make sure your guests have transport and accommodation booked well in advance.
