Fabulous salsa for their Wedding Dance
Wedding Dance at The Lord Bute after a beautiful ceremony at Highcliffe Castle
I was excited about the Wedding Dance when we arrived at The Lord Bute and spotted the salsa-themed table names and discovered that Ashleigh and Neil’s was going to be salsa! It’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a while, and seeing their dance has reinforced that desire!
If you want to know more about salsa and the salsa scene, check out Salsa Hackers and once you’ve done that, you’ll discover that this is a bachata, not salsa! The particular track Ashleigh and Neil chose was Stand By Me. The Bournemouth area is blessed with a fantastic salsa scene; check out Salsa Explosion with the wonderful Enrique from Cuba and Latino Beat.
It had been a beautiful wedding at Highcliffe Castle, and the weather was fantastic. Sunny, and warm, but with enough of a breeze to lift the heat. Unfortunately though, Ashleigh hadn’t thought to put any suntan cream on, and had rosy shoulders by the end of the day. Note to self- add sun cream to my camera bag too, along with the wet wipes, safety pins, and all the other bits and pieces you start to carry when you’ve been photographing weddings for a number of years.
Ashleigh and Neil’s guests were lovely, and I think they deserve the “Guest of the Year” award! Every time I called for guests to be one of the groups we had agreed during the wedding consultation, they were there! So we did 15 beautifully arranged groups in 20 minutes, which was wonderful, and meant that we had a little more time with Ashleigh and Neil at the beach before leaving the Castle in time for the next wedding to start gathering.
