Karly and Sam’s perfect summer small intimate wedding

Karly and Sam’s perfect summer small intimate wedding

We loved welcoming Karly and Sam to Ocean Kave to celebrate their truly beautiful wedding.  From the moment we first spoke to Karly we knew that this wedding was going to be totally fabulous! 

The couple had a clear vision for a beautiful coastal outdoor wedding and up to the day we planned for such.  However one of the great things about Ocean Kave is that the venue is fully equipped to relocate a wedding ceremony at short notice if needed. The weather was not on our side the day before Karly and Sam’s wedding which meant that the wedding planning team had to go into plan B mode and create the couples vision inside the Kave.

Fortunately the bride had such a wonderful eye for detail and her personal styling choices meant that this wedding was going to be stunning regardless of where they said their vows.

As the guests took their seats in the romantic fairy-tale Kave, Adrian our senior planner collected Karly from Kala’s cottage in the Land Rover to bring her down to the Kave where her loved ones were waiting.

The bride was absolutely stunning in a floor length gown and veil, her bridesmaids were wearing elegant mint green dresses and she carried a beautiful bouquet of dusky pinks, creams and sage greens.

After the ceremony the sun was shining and the guests enjoyed a relaxed reception of canapes and Pimm’s on the lawn before taking their seats in the Kave for a sumptuous private dining experience.

The couple hired a fantastic acoustic singer called Harrison to serenade them for the first dance, there was not a dry eye in sight as the newly married couple took their first dance.  The breath taking sunset over the ocean was truly magical and a memory which many will hold for years to come.

The couple chose Plymouth based professional wedding photographers First Light Wedding Photographyto capture their special day. Pete and Nikkie from First Light are familiar with the venue and one of our most sought after professional wedding photographers, choosing a professional and experienced photographer on your wedding day who makes you feel relaxed is so important.  A great photographer will be able to seamlessly adapt to changes in the order of the day to deliver memories to last a life time.


At the end of the evening the couple retired to their luxurious bridal suite Kala’s cottage.  It was an absolute joy to work with Karly and Sam and we are so pleased they chose Ocean Kave as their venue.
