We were overjoyed when the enchanting duo, Charlotte and Avon, reached out to us with dreams of a summer wedding at the breathtaking Ocean Kave. Hailing from the vibrant city of Dubai, their bustling lives demanded a venue that would grant them a magical day and a stress-free journey into wedded bliss.
In the warm embrace of September, surrounded by 22 cherished guests, the couple embarked on a journey of love in a Small Intimate Wedding Ceremony. The love emanated not just from the couple but from their family and dear ones residing in the cozy self-catering holiday cottages at Westward Living.
Choosing a venue with awe-inspiring views demands the expertise of a skilled photographer to capture those precious wedding moments. The lovely pair enlisted the talents of the renowned wedding photographer, Brad Wakefield, to immortalise their special day. As Charlotte graced the Kave in her floor-length lace gown, Brad skilfully captured the emotion of her grand entrance, blending seamlessly into the surroundings to preserve candid moments and exquisite sunsets with authenticity.
Following a romantic ceremony bathed in candlelight within the Ocean Kave, the newlyweds and their guests migrated to the lawn for a delightful session of canapés and Prosecco. The rhythmic waves of the Atlantic Ocean provided the perfect backdrop, serenading the celebration.
As the chilled and laid-back photoshoot concluded, the gathering retired to the Rustic Barn for lawn games and more delectable canapés. Meanwhile, the couple, accompanied by their photographer, ventured into a personal shoot within the private coastal grounds. The Ocean Kave signature styling, complemented by the artistry of local stylist Do Me A Favour, created a beautiful fusion of rustic charm and bespoke elegance.
The Ocean Kave BBQ wedding breakfast unfolded as a relaxed and delicious feast, offering locally sourced dishes that delighted the palate. No need for guests to preselect dishes—except for dietary considerations, making it a stress-free culinary experience.
Post-wedding breakfast, Charlotte, Avon, and their guests danced the night away to hand-picked cocktails. The exquisite wedding cake, a creation of the talented local baker Lulu Primrose, added a sweet touch to a day brimming with love.
The couple, drawn to Ocean Kave for its all-inclusive luxury, found solace in a traditional British-themed wedding against the backdrop of the sea. In Charlotte's words, "Keep it simple. Cherish the little moments and do what truly makes you happy." Staying on-site with other guests was a highlight, allowing them to savour every precious moment together.
In the days leading up to the wedding, the couple and their closest friends and family crafted special memories in the privacy of their luxurious on-site accommodation. Charlotte remarked, "The whole experience made us feel like we were always closely together with our loved ones, and we have fallen in love with Devon even more."
Hosting Charlotte and Avon's wedding at Ocean Kave was an absolute joy. They left their indelible mark on the venue, infusing it with their unique love story.
