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.

Wedding Photography Parklands, Quendon Hall – Katharine & Phil

It was a beautiful day when we arrived at Parklands, Quendon Hall, to do the Wedding Photography for Katharine and Phil, in fact it proved to be the hottest day of the year so far!  The girls were getting ready and all was going well and when Katharine’s hair and make-up was finished we transferred to the Red room for her portraits.  Meanwhile, Phil was greeting the Wedding Guests downstairs and in between his duties we took a few pictures of him and his Groomsmen.  After taking some pictures of Katharine, and the Guests were all seated for the outdoor Wedding Ceremony, Katharine made her entrance. Following the Ceremony, Katharine and Phil led their Guests around the front of Parklands for the Drinks Reception.  Finding shelter from the blazing sun for a few family group pictures was our task at that moment! A while later we took Katharine and Phil for a very short walk for their together pictures before the Wedding Breakfast in the Marquee.  After the Speeches,  and whilst the Wedding Guests were socialising, Katharine, Phil and ourselves left them to take advantage of the evening sunshine around this stunning Wedding Venue, capturing some lovely photographs.  Katharine and Phil then danced their First Dance with Katharine’s Dad being a member of the Band.
