Only 5 days to go now and everything is nearly ready for Saturday!
So let’s go through a few things before you set off on your trip to Dorset…
First, the weather!
The forecast is looking good, with the promise of a bright sunny day But remember to bring something to wrap up warm in case it’s cold. Also, wellies may not be a bad idea because, although we’re now expecting a dry day, can we actually trust the weather forecast??? Hmmm…
For those of you coming to the wedding ceremony by car, there is a pay-and-display car park at Bournemouth Town Hall. In case this car park is full, there are on-street pay-and-display parking spaces on Bourne Avenue and Braidley Road.
There will be a few parking spaces at Winkton Common Farm but not enough to accommodate all cars, so please be prepared to park in the nearby area. I believe on-street parking in the area is free but I’ll check this information soon and post it here.
By now, we hope that you were able to find a place to stay, but in case you’re still searching for accommodation, then please check this website: http://www.visitchristchurch.info/accommodation. A few friends found B&Bs offering good deals there.
Camping at Winkton Common Farm should be fine from Friday onwards as there won’t be toilet facilities before then.
Ok, so have we forgotten anything else here? If so then please get in touch!

As the big day draws closer and closer so do the nerves!
In exact one month from today, we will be travelling to Brazil on our three weeks long honeymoon (and visiting family trip)!
We expect to be recovered from our big wedding bash by then, otherwise it will be longest 14 hours ever! Unless we fall asleep on the plane, which is unlikely since we’ll be carrying the little one with us and two children (Lillie & Max).
So, here are some updates about our wedding day.
The camping area at Winkton Common Farm is now totally booked out. It proved to be a very popular choice!
There will be a very cool yurt in the party kindly lent to us by Wild in Style for a children and baby area (sorry adults). Have a look at their website to see some of the amazing Yurts and Gypsy Caravans sorted out by Big Al, our wilderness friend!!!!
We’re still in search for a rock band to play in our party – any ideas anyone, Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Faith No More, G n R, Black Sabbath style cover songs?
So, pretty much everything is now ready for our big day 🙂
Have you found your costumes yet? Remember, science fiction or fantasy (just to clarify not your own fantasies Henri!). Oh and it’s not fancy dress for the ceremony unless you want, it’s a free country afterall (unless you live in London and don’t want missiles on your roof ).
That’s all for now and see you on our big day! 🙂
