Love’s young dream

Childhood sweethearts Victoria and Lucas celebrated their big day with a joyous Hawaiian theme

Victoria Booker and Lucas Jones were married at St Mary's Church, Longfleet followed by a reception at The Italian Villa at Compton Acres, Poole on 8th September, 2016.

I had my prom at the Italian Villa, my aunt and uncle were married there and we both really loved the gardens.

 

Love’s young dream: Image 2aWe wanted to get married at St Mary's because we've been going there for a few years and there was enough room for my large family.

Love’s young dream: Image 2 I went for a princess-style dress that was nothing like the long sleeved, tight fitting gown I thought I wanted. The lady at Courtyard Bridal picked it out for me and from the moment I put it on, I fell in love with it and refused to try on any others.

My two sisters and Luke's sister were bridesmaids and they wore different coloured pastel dresses. I had two little flowergirls as well.

 

Love’s young dream: Image 4aWe chose a Hawaiian theme because we were going there for our honeymoon and we both love the Hawaii Five-O TV series. I didn't want bright colours though so opted for pastel shades instead.

Luke looked smart in a cream suit and his two bestmen and ushers wore navy ones.

 

Love’s young dream: Image 6aWe had a three-tiered cake as well, which was decorated with flowers.

Love’s young dream: Image 6 It was a really lovely day so we could all enjoy the beautiful setting and grounds.

I can't dance to save my life so we decided to have a barn dance, which everyone enjoyed.

 

Love’s young dream: Image 8aAll our guests were given sweet bags to help themselves from the pastel-themed pick 'n' mix stand.

Love’s young dream: Image 8 We had canapés, champagne and Pimm's outside in the gardens, which was lovely.

The tables were named after different Hawaiian islands.
