Superb Tipi wedding at The Gardens in Yalding

By Weddings No Comments

Give your wedding photography  a really interesting location with this unique mix of Tipi and assorted garden spaces. 

Couple: Felicity and Darren

Ceremony and reception: The Gardens, Benover Rd, Yalding, Maidstone ME18 6EX

The Gardens in Yalding, Kent make for a lovely summer outdoor venue. Not only do you get to explore 16 themed garden areas, but you’ll also enjoy your reception in their magical Tipi – great for boho weddings.

Felicity’s bridal preps began on site along with her bridesmaids, while Darren and the guys were also early to arrive, and taking in the views outside, via the bar of course!

After her amazing transformation into a bride, it was down the long garden path to their romantic outdoor ceremony.

There are just so many photo opportunities to be had in these gardens.  Felicity and Darren definitely appreciated the time we spent exploring for their dedicated portraits.

What I love about receptions inside Tipi’s is the colourful and warm atmosphere, a lot nicer and photographically interesting than a standard marquee for example. This Tipi opens out into the gardens one end and the bar and dancefloor at the other, so it’s a really nice layout for chasing pictures, and everything looks even better when the fairy lights come on in the evening.

See more of how this special wedding day unfolded below.

A cosy wedding day at The Barn in Tunbridge Wells

By Weddings No Comments

For smaller wedding days and less fuss, The Barn is a charming and intimate venue in Kent worth considering.

Couple: Joanna and Ben

Ceremony and reception: The Barn Pub & Restaurant, 1 Lonsdale Gardens, Mount Pleasant Rd, Tunbridge Wells TN1 1NU

The Barn in the heart of Tunbridge Wells is an established and award-winning wedding venue well known for great food and exceptional value for smaller scale weddings.

From my experience of weddings at The Barn, they really do work hard on the personal touch aspect and are fully supportive of us wedding photographers to get the best possible images.

On this day, Joanna started her bridal preps at the local Royal Wells Hotel.  There was a special guest in the room which turned out to be a rather cute family teddy bear from Jo’s childhood.  On went the light and natural make-up, a few deep breaths into the wedding dress and this bride-to-be was hype to go.

I made my way over the Barn to meet Ben and guests and catch Joanna arriving with her father.  Ben was playing it cool but he was clearly way more nervous than Jo.  I reminded him he’d be a married man in less than 30mins and then the day would go by in a flash – not sure it helped.

Post ceremony and drinks I took the couple to the local gardens for some time alone and their couple portraits.  Always recommended.  Next it was back to the venue and by this point plenty of drinks had the crowd lively (good for photos).  First dances followed the speeches and the evening rolled on merrily into happy memories for all.

Joanna and Ben booked in for all day Kent wedding photography. I joined Joanna early morning for bridal preps and concluded shortly after guests hit the dancefloor.  Here’s a snapshot of the 500 or so images recorded of their big day.

Wedding photos at Hever Castle

A wedding with a view at Hever Castle, Edenbridge.

By Weddings No Comments

Hever Castle has to be the most amazing setting for a wedding you will find in Kent.   Couples can expect to enjoy the charming drawbridge Castle as a backdrop, the country house Aston Wing for bridal preps and the epic Italian Garden for a stunning lakeside ceremony.

Couple: Sandra and Scott

Ceremony and reception: Hever Castle, Edenbridge, Kent TN8 7NG

It’s not often a wedding has the red-carpet treatment, but that’s what Sandra had in place as she made her entrance to marry Scott.    The setting was epic as their guests watched her arrival into the ornate and grandeur of surroundings that overlook the lake behind Hever Castle.

The lighting here was flattering in open shade, and the backdrop to their photos was perfect no matter where I pointed the camera.  We took the time to explore the immediate surrounds for their portraits before the short walk to the reception hall.   Unfortunately, the castle itself was not available to us on this day – what a bummer!

Sandra and Scott  went for for all day photo coverage, starting with her bridal preps and concluding just after the first dances.  They received  close to 500 images of their wedding day.   Here are a selection of their images:
