Wedding Photography for Kate and Shaun at Cooling Castle Barn, Kent

Our day started with Kate and the Girls at their Hotel, followed by a Church Ceremony at St. Helen’s, Cliffe.  Shaun arrived at the Church with his Best Man in a vintage Rover Police Car.  Following the Ceromony we took a few formal groups at the Church door and then left to go to Cooling Castle Barn, Nr Rochester, Kent.  This stunning Venue was another new Venue for us.  The weather was sufficiently kind, enabling us to take a few pictures around the grounds.  After the Weddding Breakfast Kate and Shaun wanted a few pictures of themselves around the inside of the Barn which we were more than happy to take.  After the Bride and Groom’s First Dance the Guests were treated to a surprise display by a travelling cast of River Dance, which was superb.

Wedding of Jacqueline & John – Prested Hall, Kelvedon,

It was a pleasure to photograph another Wedding at our local Church St. Nicolas, Witham, where Jacqueline and John were married.  It was a bright but chilly day, so we were able to take some family group pictures outside the Church before leaving for the Reception.  Prested Hall, Kelvedon, was the setting for the Wedding Reception, with a few pictures taken around the grounds with the Autumn colours.  After the Wedding Breakfast, Tim of Silver Sparks Disco provided the evening entertainment and after photographing Jacqueline and John’s First Dance we left them and their Guests to continue the evening Reception.

Wedding Photography for Catherine & Ugo at Kersey Mill, Suffolk

Catherine and Ugo were very happy to have such a beautiful day for their Wedding at Kersey Mill, Suffolk.  This was our first Wedding at Kersey Mill which always adds extra interest and creative challenges.  There was a nice Courtyard for the Drinks Reception and for group photographs.  There were also some lovely areas in and around the Mill where we went to for Catherine and Ugo’s pictures.  A mixture of Italian, Irish and English nationalities added to the character of the day and it was nice to see people from Fennes enjoying themselves instead of working where we normally see them.



Here’s an idea:-

Ask  a few friends to lunch with their babies, ask us to come and photograph them. This is what happened for this group with one of our past Brides – OK asking for the group picture as well as all the individuals was a bit of a surprise but I think we coped reasonably well???childrens photography Suffolk
