14 Feb Marwell Hotel Wedding for Samantha & Amit
It’s not every January day that you get up bright and early for a wedding at the Zoo. But that’s precisely what happened to us in mid January when we travelled down to Hampshire for the Marwell Hotel Wedding of Sam & Amit. We stayed in a B&B the night before and looking out at the torrential rain we kept everything crossed for the next day. Well all that crossing did the trick as we went through the entire day without a drop of rain, which only made an appearance once we were safely back inside the hotel and ready for the wedding breakfast.
I started the day with Sam and the girls (plus dad) at Sam & Amit’s home near Portsmouth and by the time we left the whole street was out waiting to wave us off on our 30 min journey to Marwell. The Hall at Marwell is fabulous and this was the location for the ceremony. We were a little tight on time as Sam and Amit had a date with the Giraffes who must be fed at set time. Now, this being January, we stepped outside, briefly, for some group shots and portraits and I think we did those in record time given that the wind was picking up and the rain was threatening. So we jumped into the car and whizzed down to the Marwell Hotel for the wedding breakfast. Within 2 minutes the rain began, but no-one cared as they were having a great time and were back in the warm !
This was our first Marwell Hotel Wedding and we sincerely hope it’s not our last. It is a wonderful venue, the animals add an extra element of fun, and the food here is lovely! If you’re planning your own Zoo wedding and want to talk through your plans for your day, we’d be thrilled to hear from you. You can also keep up to date by liking our Facebook page.
