The bride and groom chose to celebrate their marriage with a reception at the Cumberland Hotel in Bournemouth. Ali did lots of research on the internet and found an amazing review from a Cumberland bride, and there was a wedding fair on at the time of their engagement so they went along to have a look.
They were so taken with it that they booked an appointment with the wedding planner and booked their big day.
They loved the art deco style of the venue, the amazing staff and how luxurious it felt. There were enough hotel rooms so their friends and family could stay too – this was important as they were coming from across the country.
Ali couldn’t speak highly enough of the wedding coordinator, Lisa, describing her as ‘the most patient and accommodating person I’ve ever dealt with – an absolute pleasure.’
