Olly & Holly's Stunning New Forest Wedding - The New Forest - Hampshire (VIDEO)
[PAUL] - What can I say? This wedding absolutely blew me away! As I originally hail from Portsmouth, Hampshire (and the New Forest in particular) holds a very special place in my heart, so it was lovely to be back in that part of the country again.
Olly & Holly couldn’t have had a more perfect day; the weather was absolutely stunning, the sun shining through the tall pines whilst they made their vows in the heart of the forest. The happy couple opted for a Humanist ceremony, with the celebrant retelling the story of how they’d actually met half way around the world whilst travelling and then returning home to continue their story. After possibly the best hymn performance I’ve ever witnessed (all of the guests singing their hearts out to the classic ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You’ by Frankie Valli), the pair took their first steps down the aisle as a married couple and onto an afternoon of good food, exceptional people and the only other thing you could possibly want at your wedding- axe throwing!
The speeches were spot on, full of Essex charm, great humour and a lot of emotion. It was evident to me that Holly and Olly are surrounded by a hell of a lot of good people who were truly happy to see them wed.
The only thing left to round out a truly spectacular day was a good band to get the party started, even more booze and a photo booth to make sure that there was evidence of what I can only imagine was a monumental knee’s up!
