Sunday 25th July 2021 was the day that Gemma and Rob tied the knot at Ocean Kave in the presence of their loved ones in a beautiful summer outdoor wedding.
This was the perfect British Summer wedding, and we were so pleased that they had chosen our venue to be the backdrop for the couple’s special day.
The pandemic has made weddings so uncertain for many couples which is why 8 months before their wedding day, Gemma and Rob decided that they wanted a beautiful elopement wedding. They knew they wanted to get married by the sea but did not want the worry if the wedding could go ahead or not or if they would have to uninvite guests at the last minute due to Government Restrictions. A smaller more intimate wedding was the best option for the couple and our Micro Wedding package ticked all their boxes.
The summers skies were graced the day with beautiful sunshine which set the scene for the guests to witness the couple take their vows with the breath taking Atlantic Ocean behind them.
Gemma arrived in style, she was a super cool bride and chose to walk the 600m from her cottage to the ceremony, accompanied by her bridesmaids she wore a beautiful lace embellished gown designed by Martina Liana. We were all really impressed with Gemma’s bridal entrance especially wearing satin heels.
Down at the Kave her handsome groom Rob was anxiously awaiting his bride’s arrival. At 2pm Gemma started her graceful ascent up the aisle on the arm of her father, the couple had chosen to play the Boyce Avenue’s “I can’t help falling in love” to set the scene for their vows.
After a beautiful ceremony the couple and their guests enjoyed a drinks reception on the lawn whilst their photographer Marc Collins and videography Chris Catullo from North Summit Films went to work capturing the couple’s precious memories.
Once the photos were complete the new Mr and Mrs Medley retired to the rustic barn to enjoy a delicious three course wedding breakfast in the company of their family and loved ones (included the four-legged ones).
It was a very special day and we really loved working closely together to personalise the day to suit Gemma and Rob’s vision.
Gemma’s top tip for brides to be –
Don’t stress over the small stuff, on the day it won’t matter. Eat something in the morning and drink plenty of water - simple things but if you don’t remind yourself, it is easy to get carried away with it all. If you are getting married at Ocean Kave, absolutely trust in Kathy, Adrian, and the rest of the team because they really will make the magic happen.
