Wedding Photography Kent – Court Lodge Barn, Stansted for Emma & James

Wedding Photography Kent – It was a bright and early start for us, with fingers crossed for the rain to stop for Emma and James’ Wedding in Kent –  We arrived at Emma’s house and the bridal preparations were well underway and going smoothly. With lots to photograph I busily got on with the ‘getting ready’pictures whilst David did something we don’t often do and disappeared for a little while to photograph the men’s preparations at the nearby Brands Hatch Place Hotel.

David returned shortly and it wasn’t long before the girls were dressed and ready for a few pictures. As it had dried up outside we took a couple of pictures of Emma, the Bridesmaid and her Parents and a few bridal portraits, before it was time for us to leave for the Church.

St Mary’s Church, Fawkham, was where Emma and James were to be married.  The sunshine was out as James, his Groomsmen and the Guests arrived at the Church.  A few pictures of James with his Best Man and Ushers were taken before it was time for them to go inside the Church.

Emma arrived at Church with her Father and Bridesmaids and made the short walk up the path and into the Church for the service.

After being showered in confetti Emma and James left the Church for the Reception.

Court Lodge Barn, Stansted was the chosen Wedding Venue and as the Guests arrived they enjoyed the Drinks reception in the warm sunshine in the grounds behind the Barn whilst being entertained by a Steel Band. Once Emma and James arrived, we took a few pictures of them before they socialised. During this time we took some informal pictures before the fun bridal pictures before the Wedding Breakfast.

As there was a few minutes between the end of the dessert and Speeches, and it was very hot in the Barn, Emma and James came outside and we took advantage and took some pictures of them.  This was followed by capturing some lovely reactions when the Speeches took place.

The lane beside the Barn provided Emma and James with some lovely evening pictures before their First Dance.  Thinking we were not going to get a sunset that evening, we all were delighted when we looked skywards for the umpteenth time that evening and found we did! A nice way to end our coverage of a lovely Wedding.

Commercial Photography

Commercial Photography is not something we cover a great deal, as we are so busy photographing weddings that we really do not get much time!  This job was to capture finished rooms for a local Interior Design and Decoration business run by Paul Walden.  Unfortunately, we did not meet Paul in time to do the ‘before’ as well at the ‘finished’ pictures but here’s looking forward to his next project.

Wedding Photography Fennes for Paula & David

Wedding Photography Fennes – Paula and David chose the splendid Wedding Venue, Fennes, for their Wedding Ceremony and Reception.  It was a glorious day and preparations were underway for an outdoor Ceremony. Paula’s Bridal preparations were going well upstairs, David was downstairs greeting their Guests. Once we had used a few minutes capturing a few pictures of him we left him to return to the guests. Paula was not too keen having her picture taken, but she was fine, we worked quickly  and took a couple of pictures of her, then it was time for her to go downstairs.  The Guests were seated and it was time for Paula to take her son’s arm and walk over to the Gazebo for the Ceremony.  Following the Ceremony we took a picture of everybody then they enjoyed the Drinks Reception whilst we took a few informal pictures. Paula and David’s dog Bert, was part of the Wedding and joined them in their pictures around the grounds of Fennes as well as in the group pictures later on.Wedding Photography Fennes After the confetti pictures we took Paula and David into the Pavilion to take a couple of pictures with the cake before the start of the Wedding Breakfast.

Wedding Photography Layer Marney for Rebecca & James

Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower– It was a lovely day for Rebecca and James’ Wedding.  Our day started at the home of Rebecca’s Parents for a few preparation pictures followed by a few portrait pictures once everybody was ready.  The garden proved to be a good spot for a few pictures before it was time to make our way to Layer Marney.  Rebecca and James chose to have a Church Ceremony at Layer Marney Church and that is where we met James with his Groomsmen.  In between the Groomsmen carrying out their duties and James greeting the Wedding Guests, some of whom travelled on the Layer Marney Routemaster bus, we managed to find a little time for a few pictures of them. Rebecca arrived not long afterwards in the Layer Marney Rolls Royce. Rebecca and her Bridesmaids then walked up the path and into the Church.  Following the  service there were a couple of pictures outside the church and the confetti shots. Rebecca and James went for a ride in the car, whilst their Guests walked the short distance from the Church up the path and steps to Layer Marney Tower, for the Drinks Reception.

Afterwards everybody enjoyed the evening sunshine before the start of the evening Reception.  When it was time for the First Dance, Rebecca and James surprised their Guests with a superb rehearsed dance.
