Unique Perfection for Gemma And Meshaq
Every wedding is unique because each couple brings with them their own style and personality. However, some of our couples go that little bit further with the special touches, and Gemma and Meshaq were one of those couples. Although we offer full styling services at Ocean Kave, Gemma and Meshaq had very clear ideas of how they wanted their wedding day to look. So, of course, we did our best to accommodate their needs and welcomed them to source local suppliers to help them to create the wedding of their dreams.
Prior to the wedding, we spent time with the couple talking about their ideas and what would work well with regard to styling. Gemma had very particular ideas and an incredible attention to detail that meant that everything was planned and styled to the finest detail, from the guests’ favours to chair adornments.
A June wedding is perfect because it offers the couples maximum daylight hours, however as with any wedding, particularly in the UK, the weather can be a touch unpredictable. It was, therefore, with great joy that the couple, their family and guests greeted the glorious sunshine on the morning of their wedding.
Meshaq and his groomsmen got ready for the day together in Star cottage, where they had a stiff drink to steady their nerves before heading down to the Kave to greet their guests. The venue looked its best bathed in the June sunlight as guests started to arrive and enjoy a pre-wedding drink at the bar.
As 2 O’clock approached, the guests were seated in the Kave and Meshaq waited for his beautiful bride to arrive, accompanied by the family dog, of course. Gemma was given away by her father and looked absolutely stunning in a tailored, fishtail dress with plunging neckline and back. As we had learnt to expect from Gemma, the attention to detail was incredible and she and her bridesmaids looked breathtakingly beautiful.
Following the ceremony, the wedding party enjoyed Bucks Fizz and canapes on the lawn, where they played lawn games and enjoyed the spectacular views. The wedding planners had allowed time for the couple to get photos to capture their day; the photographer, Brad Wakefield, captured a perfect mix of structured shots and reportage style photos, which flawlessly immortalised the elegance and joy of the day.
The couple and their 76 guests enjoyed a delicious three-course dinner before the wedding speeches induced many tears of joy and laughter. A DJ heralded the start of evening celebrations and after the couple had cut the cake and had their first dance as husband and wife, they went with Brad to enjoy a few quiet moments together at sunset.
A perfect sunset photo is the pinnacle of every beachside wedding, and we were thrilled that a combination of the weather, the stunning couple and a talented photographer meant that Meshaq and Gemma’s special day produced that perfect shot.
Every fabulous wedding deserves a fabulous band and The Distractions got the guests up and dancing the night away!
Every wedding at Ocean Kave is special, but Gemma and Meshaq’s attention to detail and, of course, their dog, made their day completely and utterly beautiful and unique, just like them. It was such an honour to be able to host their day and we wish them love, happiness and success for many years to come.
