A wedding that has a Ferrero Rocher table plan certainly gets our approval! A wedding with fish and chips straight from the chippy… massive bonus points!

Caroline and David married at Poole Guildhall and then walked with their guests down to Scaplen’s Court for their wedding reception. Scaplen’s Court is a Grade One listed medieval house built in the 1500s and 1600s as a courtyard inn. What an amazing place for a wedding.

We love the fun details of this wedding. The fish and chip dinner, the amazing doughnut stack cake, the Ferrero Rocher table plan and also the cute little fingerprint hearts on the thank you notes attached to the heart shaped tea infuser favours.

A big thank you to Az from Lemontree Photography for sharing such beautiful pictures.

“Caroline and David live in Canada but travelled back to the UK to have a Dorset wedding. Caroline’s close family and friends in Canada also attended this Scaplen’s Court wedding. This was also the first time that both sets of parents had met.” – Az, Lemontree Photography

Quintessentially English

“We can only describe our wedding as the perfect day full of all our favourite things. We enjoyed delicious food and drinks and a party with our closest family and friends (with many coming all the way from Canada). It was quintessentially English with afternoon tea, fish and chips and ice cream, along with colourful bunting in a building full of history.

“We blissfully danced the night away, with our first dance being to Harvest Moon by Neil Young. After all, we had to incorporate some Canadian elements.”
