Real Weddings - Chilled and relaxed summertime coastal wedding

July is always a wonderful time of year to get married at Ocean Kave

July 2016

Terri and Joff certainly chose one of the best days of the summer for their beautiful and oh so personal wedding celebrations.

The couple had a very special 4 legged VIP to the wedding celebrations, the bride got ready in our dog friendly bridal suite Dream Cottage which was perfect as it meant that Coco could also enjoy the pre wedding celebrations.  Terri was radiant in an elegant floor length white wedding dress adorned in lace and delicate beading; she carried a gorgeous bouquet of pinks and seasonal pastel shades.  The groom complimented his beautiful bride to be in a stylish navy suit with a pink tie and striking pink rose buttonhole.

The bride made her grand entrance into the Kave on the arm of her proud father, to the chords of a harpist; it was a very magical and special moment for the couple and their guests.

After the ceremony the couple treated their guests to summer cocktails and bottles of chilled beers on the lawn with a selection of chefs hand made canapés including our famous min Devon cream tea scones. 

After the welcome reception, lawn games, photos and lots of love and laughter, it was time to grace the sunset rooms for the wedding reception.  The room looked wonderful with hand crafted floral centrepieces to match the bride’s bouquet that were lovingly created by Blooms of Bideford.

The day looks on a chilled, relaxed and romantic vibe, which was our brief when we first met Terri and Joff.  The guests danced the night away to the amazing sound of talented Leicestershire based musician Richie Phillips.

This wonderful wedding was full of surprises and personal touches that made the wedding truly unique to the couple.

Quote from Terri & Joff (Mrs. and Mr. Musson)

“There isn’t one memory we could really say was our most special, the whole day was just amazing. We loved the laid back feel and whole vibe of the day couldn’t of been better, all our guests and family also all commented on how chilled out and how well the day flowed, add this to a real different / stunning venue it made for an unforgettable experience. All the suppliers Ocean Kave recommended were fantastic and seeing our friend Richie Phillips play at our wedding was amazing.

We chose Ocean Kave after meeting Kathy at a Birmingham wedding show in October 2015, we both felt very comfortable around her, and the fact Ocean Kave was so different to other venues, we liked that the venue didn’t try and hard sell (not that they would ever have to) and when we visited the Kave in November last year, it just felt right. I think our love for that area of the country also had a big impact in choosing Ocean Kave, we and our family love the area so much.

Tips for other couples would be, not to overthink, not to stress and to enjoy the whole experience (which was definitely made easier with the Ocean Kave team). As someone said to me it comes around so quick its over before you know it.”
