Cumberland Hotel Wedding

Maria & Chris - 1st September 2011

Bournemouth Town Hall, Dorset
Cumberland Hotel, Bournemouth, Dorset

Every now and then we meet wedding officials who think they are more important than the wedding itself. Unfortunately for Maria and Chris, the registrars at Bournemouth on this occasion were a good example of this. They seemed to do everything they could to make life as difficult as possible for us and the guests, restricting what we could photograph during the ceremony, insisting on telling us what "most photographers" do including ushering the couple down a corridor to some twee pillars (no, we didn't!) and then misinforming us and the guests as to where Maria and Chris would exit the building. Such a marked difference to the lovely registrars we have met in neighbouring Christchurch and Poole.

Anyway back to Maria and Chris. It really was great to see the bond which has developed between Maria's son Niall, mature beyond his years, and the lovely Abigail and football mad Sam, Chris's children. This is testament to the caring nature of both Maria and Chris, although both boys supporting Arsenal does help.

Arsenal fan Chris had stayed up late checking out last minute transfers on deadline day.

Maria's family had travelled down from the valleys in South Wales and there was no hiding how proud her dad was.
