A beautiful Dorset Village Hall Wedding with pretty pale blue and dusky pink details

Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful Dorset Village Hall Wedding with pretty pale blue and dusky pink details.

Images were captured by One Thousand Words Photography.

One Thousand Words Photography are Tom and Murray.

They specialise in creating documentary wedding photographs by telling the story of the entire day from start to finish in an unobtrusive manner, something that is an even more important skill with the intimate weddings that are allowed with Covid restrictions.


They say of the couples day…


We first met Pippa & Christopher for a drink overlooking the river in Wareham to talk about their exciting plans for their big day.

We got on like a house on fire and they booked our services almost immediately.

We then arranged to take a walk up to Harry’s rocks on the Jurassic coast on a sunny summer’s day (in 2019). It’s a stone’s throw away from our office and Christopher proposed there.

Their loving family focused wedding day packed full of smiles, laughter and fun with everyone so relaxed and thoroughly enjoying the summer sun.

It was easy for us to integrate into the wedding, feeling like a part of the day and capturing the proceedings as they happened.


Beautiful Bride Pippa  says of the couples gorgeous Dorset Village Hall Wedding…


How did you meet?

We met in sixth form, nearly 10 years before our big day!

Tell us about the Proposal…

We went for a walk in one of our favourite locations, Old Harry Rocks for Christopher’s birthday and were planning a meal at the pub nearby after to celebrate.

Much to my surprise, he proposed at the top of the hill overlooking Studland, we still went to the pub for lunch but it was rather a different celebration!

Tell us about your wedding planning journey…

We got engaged in March 2018, and planned our big day for May 2020.

I was undertaking my accountancy exams and we already had a big holiday planned to New Zealand at the end of 2018, and we wanted to enjoy the planning process so decided to go for 2020.

Little did we know what 2020 would hold!

We had everything planned in February ready for May, with just the last minute bits to do.

When the lockdown was announced in March we immediately contacted all our suppliers and moved our May date to October.

We were really fortunate in that almost all our original suppliers could do this date and in March we thought October would be safe.

Unfortunately, 10 days before the postponed date, the announcement came that the numbers were being reduced from 30 to 15.

As we had already managed to reduce our numbers from over 100 to 30, we really didn’t feel we could reduce them further.

Christopher was at work when the announcement came in and made an off-hand comment to me and my mum who was with me about whether we could bring it forward a week.

My mum jumped on the idea saying ‘why not!’ and before we knew it we were ringing round all our suppliers to see if there was any chance of bringing it forward.

By some miracle, everyone was free and more than willing to bring it forward. Third date lucky, we managed to have a fantastic day with our closest friends and family.

Any special touches/DIY?

We enjoyed adding our own elements of DIY from the bar stocked with our favourite local beers and ciders to the stationery.

What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?

Fun! Our colour palette was pale blue and dusky pink.

What was the best bit of your day?

It was really just finally getting to marry each other.

Is there anything you would do differently?

Ideally not get married in the middle of a global pandemic, as we had to compromise on the day we wanted, we had originally planned a barn dance!

But we were happy with our planning as we kept everything relaxed.

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

Enjoy time to plan, and don’t worry about the little details, as long as there is good food and drink your guests will be happy!
