On Sunday 8th May we hosted The Dorset Wedding Festival and boy, were we lucky with the weather! After an initial downpour in the morning before the event opened, the sun came out and grew hotter and hotter as the day went on. We were thrilled, as after three years of wet and muddy Dorset Wedding Festivals, we finally had sunshine!
