Last Saturday, I headed back to The Grand Hotel in Swanage for the last time this year, for the wedding of Clare and Neil. A much changed day from my last visit too! Not much sun around this time, in fact quite the opposite. A stormy day, windy with heavy downpours to contend with, but …

It feels a long time ago now, but it was a wet, windy New Year’s Eve as I headed over to the Crown Hotel in Blandford to meet up with Zoe and her bridal party mid-preparation for Zoe & Jon’s New Year’s wedding. The room was typically busy – Zoe had a large bridal party …
