Natalie and Keiran
Natalie said, ”When looking for a venue we were at first a little dubious as neither of us are from Dorset. We needed to find a venue that was accessible to our darling Aunty Mary, who is wheelchair bound. Her attendance was our reason for planning our wedding in Dorset, and we were determined to find the perfect place. Our aunt and uncle suggested a few places. There was something special about Kingston Country Courtyard. The views in particular are absolutely stunning, looking out over rolling countryside, the beautiful ruins of Corfe Castle and much to our surprise a steam train puffing along in the distance on the Swanage Railway. It was rather like stepping back in time, in the best way possible!"
Her mother’s family come from India and so they decided in homage to her past they would bring an Indian vibe to the wedding through colour and the outfits.
Natalie said, “The barn at Kingston Country Courtyard is beautiful. It is not like other barns, the cool grey stone gives it an entirely different look. It it simple; and left us with a total blank canvas. Whilst shopping for sarees in Southall, the ‘little India’ of London, I came across some beautiful multicoloured embroidered parasols. I had the vision of suspending this from the ceiling of the barn - the effect was amazing. We teamed this with bright table cloths, lots of candles, lanterns, draped fabrics. Mostly we wanted a super bright, happy day. The bonus feature of this location is the adjoining B&B which we had exclusive use of.. The staff at the Courtyard were extremely helpful and friendly, they went above and beyond to help us out. "
