Amanda & Paul - East Quay Wedding - Kent

So the gorgeous Amanda & Paul got married at East Quay, Whitstable Kent in May. Amanda and Paul were the most relaxed, chilled couple I have ever met, no speeches, no fist dance as such or cake cutting (cake was a doughnut tower). The wedding was purely focussed on having a good time and partying with old school tunes and house music which I LOVED not gonna lie I danced a fair bit and even asked for their playlist so I could party later on haha!

They had an ice-cream truck where Amanda and Paul had a go at serving up 99’s to their guests - which is harder than it looks Mr Whippy has a mind of its own.

The sunset was magnificent as usual in Whitstable.

Amanda looked absolutely stunning her dress was simply stunning, paired with the most awesome rose gold converse trainers - which were my size (no I didn’t try them on, but considered it 🤣)

What else can I say? This wedding was pure fun, full of happiness and amazing music, via their playlist and a live band!

A wedding right up my street.

Jonny & Holly - Wedding Sneak Peek | The Gardens, Yalding, Kent

So here it is the sneak peek of Jonny & Holly’s wedding which took place on a gloriously hot day in April at The Gardens, Yalding! Now these two are blooming epic, their taste in music is exquisite so much so I got them to send me over their playlist for the day which I have been playing whilst editing their collection. Holly with her boho chic styling and Jonny with his immense suit, I am in love and thoroughly enjoyed being part of their day and also having dance on the dance floor! Also brides should do a speech!

Sam & Emma | Secret Garden Wedding, Kent - Happy Anniversary!

I photographed Sam & Emma’s small intimate wedding 2 years ago today at the secret garden in ashford - beautiful wedding one that I am fortunate enough to work at often. I never got around to blogging their wedding so thought I’ll do a anniversary one instead! It was so hot that day, nothing like todays weather felt like summer - can never rely on British weather to do what its meant to can you?!!

The one thing I relate remember was how drunk the best man got (he’s a an old friend so I can say that on here haha) but also how much I loved their colour theme I don’t think I’ll ever tire of rose gold!

Happy 2nd anniversary guys hope you have celebrated in style!

Valentines Wedding | Cooling Castle Barn, Kent | Sharah & Sam

Sharah & Sam got married on valentines day, the most romantic day of the year at an equally romantic venue, Cooling Castle Barn, Kent.

I met Sharah and Sam 2 years ago when they booked me (top tip book in advance to guarantee your date) they booked a joint package with myself and Andy Bird Videography and instantly I knew they were my kinda couple, we met up a year later for an engagement shoot amongst the bluebells one of my favourite engagement shoots. Sharah & Sam were an amazing couple, utterly gorgeous inside and out and were very happy to go with my creative way of thinking. Sharah’s wedding dress reflected her so well and Sam’s suit equally matched his personality. Sharah wore a pair of Jimmy Choos, which had she of been a size 4 I would of accidentally taken home with me haha! Everything from this wedding had been thought of, styling right through to entertainment!

I am in love with this wedding - can you believe it was in February it was so warm! With perfect light makes me very happy :0) I hope you enjoy the image. If you would like someone like me to capture your day then please get in touch!

Liz + Tim | Winters Barn, Canterbury Kent

Over Christmas I was fortunate to document two weddings at Winters Barn. Liz & Tim’s wedding being the last wedding of 2018. Full of Christmas sparkle and joy the whole day was simply a big ball of fun! I love this couple and Liz has been basically my rock before and after her wedding day, she has become what feels like - correction a good friend and I plan to have her and Tim permanently in my life!

The day was a typical crisp winter wedding but to make it even more awesome Liz & Tim had reindeers at their wedding, I never realised how big they was and trust me the saying never work with children and animals applied heavily here these reindeers did not want to have their picture taken unless moss was involved but fortunately I got some super cute shots!

We spent the whole day laughing, full of innuendo’s and I even sung rocky horror show to my gorgeous couple… thats just how I roll. My voice however questionable.

This is the only wedding where I received a gift during speeches which I won’t lie made me well up massively got a big old bottle of gin - yum and some stressticles!

Liz you looked absolutely stunning and definitely a gaga lookalike and Tim worked that top hat and epic beard! Love you guys and I hope you like your sneak peek.

Mike & Zoe | Winters Barn, Canterbury Kent

Crisp, sunny winters day set the tone for Mike & Zoe’s wedding. The light was glorious. The venue was at winters barn in Kent as always did not disappoint and the added sparkle of Christmas decorations in tow made it eye candy for me! I loved hanging out with Mike and Zoe which really felt like friends hanging out having a laugh at their wedding. We had mulled wine, gingerbread men, all the gorgeous Christmas touches which really made their wedding stunning and I LOVE Christmas so for me it was a really beautiful setup. Zoe looked absolutely stunning and her veil and dress had a real Spanish feel to it, in the morning I ask the question will Mike cry? She was adamant he wouldn’t and I even offered my services of giving him a thud so he would shed a tear but it was not needed as he definitely welled up although… who wouldn’t right??

We basically spent the day laughing and along the way got some artistic, natural photographs of them both who are clearly very much in love and if I recall rightly they have been together for 10 years if not more?!! To top the day off Mike & Zoe became Mr & Mrs Love how cool is that!!

I wish you all the best and look forward to walking the dogs together!!

Wedding at Balham Bowls Club & Wandsworth Town Hall - Catherine & Tom

The Ceremony, Wandsworth Town Hall

Catherine and Tom got married at Wandsworth town hall which I was completely blown away by, the Art Deco and marble interior was simply stunning and very elegant. We all caught the bus and drank prosecco and had some yummy gummy sweets.

The Wedding Reception - Balham Bowls

The wedding reception was held at Balham bowls club one of my favourite venues at the moment - really rustic, vintage eclectic decor with a strong music vibe. Catherine looked absolutely stunning in her dress!! It was definitely made for her! First dance was pretty cool as well, dancing to backstreet boys - 'everybody' performed by their live band! Got everyone moving.

Enjoy the photos and if you fancy having someone like me documenting your day then absolutely get in touch!!
