Wedding Photography Blog
The first shot in this blog post was taken at Eastwell Mannor, a beautiful wedding venue in Ashford, Kent. It comprises of a country house set in 3000 acres, a spa and a golf course! The time we spent there for Shayne and Sarah's wedding was fantastic. Anyway I digress, back to the subject in hand, taking wedding photos at night.
This engagement shoot was held in two locations, Dunorlan Park near Tunbridge Wells and Castle Farm near Sevenoaks in Kent.
Matt and Maria tied the knot at Hever Castle near Edenbridge in Kent and treated their guests to an evening with our photo booth. It really was a great night with a great crowd. Our photo booth is not your normal cramped box, its a backdrop that can extend to 3mx2m with professional studio lights. This means group shots are no problem at all!
I shot Stuart and Claire's wedding last year at St Augustines Priory, near Ashford in Kent. It has been featured in the latest edition of Your Kent Wedding Magazine.
Terry and Claire got married and held their reception at The Warren in Hayes, Bromley, Kent.
Well, the 2013 wedding season is well underway now, worked with some amazing couples already and have lots more before the year is over. Having family time when you work most weekends is sometimes a little tricky but this was one of those times when everything seemed aligned and the whole family could get into the studio.
What an amazing wedding day! Proceedings started with Retta's bridal preparation which was at the Madjeski Stadium hotel, near Reading.
David and Amy got married at Cooling Castle Barn near Rochester in Kent. The day was perfect from start to finish.
This year is proving more than tricky to arrange engagement photo shoots, the weather has been so unpredictable! This was the third time I believe we had tried and thank goodness the weather gods were looking down on us.
Ruth and Richard are holding they're wedding reception at Chiddingstone Castle in Kent following a church wedding. This is a stunning venue that offers lots of photographic possibilities. We decided it would also be a great location for the pre wedding shoot.
What a day! Mountains Country House is located in Hildenborough, Kent. It proved to be a stunning wedding venue and the perfect place for Ryan and Sarah to get married.
Port Lympne Safari Park is not only a stunning wedding venue, it's a fully operational safari park! This has to up there with the best for offering bride and grooms a truly unique wedding day. The park is part of the Aspinall Foundation, located near Romney Marsh in Kent and offers a beutiful grade II listed mansion and gardens. The views are panoramic and stunning to say the least.
What better way to celebrate you birthday than to hire a huge last house in Goudhurst, Kent and invite you nearest and dearest for a weekend long party!! Thats exactly what Sarah done, and what a night it was. It was a fancy dress party and the theme was the letter 'S'.
I photographed Joe and Celia's wedding in April last year but we never got a chance to do the pre wedding shoot due to rubbish english weather!
This was my first time meeting Peter and Alex so we started at the coffee shop in Scotney castle to discuss ideas, likes and dislikes. After a good natter we set off into the grounds to take some photos.
The wedding was held at a local church with the reception at the Royal Berkshire Hotel. The weather stayed dry for us if a little cold.
The styling for the photos was modern, clean and timeless.
Very exciting! Next month will see Stephen and I shooting a wedding at the Royal Berkshire Hotel in Ascot. This will be the first time I have shot there and to say I am looking forward to it is an understatment! This Queen Anne mansion is a truly grand building that will set the scene for what I am sure will be a fantastic wedding.
Boreham House is located in Chelmsford, Essex. In the years I have been a wedding photographer I don't think I have seen a more stunning driveway at any wedding venue! The lake that leads your eye to the front of the main building seems to go on forever.
The High Rocks Hotel in Tunbridge Wells, Kent is a very popular wedding venue and being only 25 minutes from my house makes bookings there very welcomed! Last summer saw us shooting 3 weddings there over two consecutive weekends, we really did feel like part of the furniture! To my knowledge this is the only wedding venue in Kent that you can arrive to by a steam train!
Joe and Celia were married at St Julians Club in Sevenoaks, Kent. I was not familiar with this venue until Joe and Celia contacted me but what a gem it is!
These photos were shot at St Lawrence Church in Chobham near Woking in Surrey. This had to be the hottest day of last year! It was sweltering!
Abby is a professional dancer and needed some photos for her portfolio. So after discussing it and looking at allot of images for inspiration we worked out our plan of attack.
Ben and Reshma tied the knot at Wandsworth Register office in London and held the wedding reception at their home also in Wandsworth. It was a real blend of culture with Reshma being indian and Ben american.
Neil and Gemma were married at Pinner Church in Middlesex with the reception being held at the Homestead, Harefield.
So when I was invited to join a trek in the sahara desert and also raise money for GOSH (Great Ormond Street Hospital) at the same time, I jumped at the chance! The mountains you can see in the photos are actually part of the Atlas mountain range, looking to your left and seeing snow capped mountains and to your right the blistering hot desert was surreal to say the least!
A winter christmas wedding at the Maidens Tower, Leeds Castle, Kent. Thats exactly what Stuart and Sarah decided to do after looking at lots of different wedding venues.
St Augustines Priory, Bilsington is nestled in the heart of the kent countryside near Ashford. A stunning wedding venue offering bride and grooms a beautiful venue and grounds to celebrate their big day.
Kings Place is located at 90 York Way in London, a stones throw from Kings Cross railway station. When Oliver and Jodie booked us to photograph their wedding there I was very curious to see what this central London wedding venue had to offer.
The Warren is a wedding venue I have not worked at before so when Sarah Jayne and Lance booked me as their wedding photographer I thought I would drive up to Bromley and take a look.
