Hotel with the Wow Factor – The Woolacombe Bay Hotel
We’ve never been to Woolacombe before and were taken aback with how pretty it was. I prefer seaside towns that are not over developed with a fish & chip shop, a clutch of B & Bs, some little arty shops, crazy golf and a wide beach – so a big Wow from me for lovely Woolacombe!
All these criteria are on my little tick list for a nice getaway by the sea. What’s nice as well is the surfer dude presence – quite a lot of them about plus a number of VW campers – so it’s probably no surprise that we instantly felt at home in Woolacombe in north Devon. (Note – we don’t have a real VW campervan only a photo booth that looks like one! Maybe one day…)
As we drove into the luxurious Woolacombe Bay Hotel’s car park we were practically dumbstruck with the size of it – it’s very grand and a little bit daunting to a pair of lowly photo boothers like ourselves.
We waited, bunting and white blooms in hands, for the speeches to finish before entering the majestic ballroom to be told by Adrian the nice wedding co ordinator where we were going to be setting up. Many venues are tight for space barely summoning enough room to put up the photo booth, but none of this here as there was enough room to swing a cat, some dogs and a herd of rhinoceroses – complete with chandeliers! It was a beautiful room that definitely had the WoW factor!
The moment we met the glamorous brides Amy and Katie and their family & friends, we were made to feel like one of the gang and proceeded to have a fantastic night! The Crosses, the Dales and all their friends were such a nice bunch of people and we were so lucky to be booked for this lovely wedding. To top it all, it’s a real treat to be invited to partake of the buffet and we were so glad we did as it really hit the spot! Thank you for the buffet and for booking us for your wedding Katie & Amy – it was so nice to meet you and hope we see you again soon! xx
