Rianna & James Bateman, Kent Wedding Sneak Peek

Rianna & James got married at a stunning church in Burmash, Kent. James Grandparents also got married at the same church so it was very special to them., followed by a gorgeous reception held at James parents house. The wedding was a very intimate affair with gorgeous poetry by James brother and some very touching, heartfelt moments during the service itself. Both couples were asked to write down their likes and dislikes by the vicar - a really lovely moment as it was a revelation to both couples what they truly felt and actually how well they knew each other. These two were clearly best friends and definitely soul mates. After the service I borrowed them for some bride and groom shots it gave them both some time to take it all in. What I didn't realise was the location I chose for their shots actually had some history to it for James - he grew up playing around in the spot I picked so it was lovely moment. We then headed off to the reception, with big white flags in the front garden blowing in the wind to show guests where to go. It was beach themed created by Rianna :0) fish bowls filled with sand and shells, and placemats all handmade by James it was a real homespun wedding that was true to them. They have this wonderful dog called Toby - Their baby he was simply beautiful and then wedding reception was based around his needs providing a quiet place for him so he could escape the hustle and bustle of wedding guests whenever he wanted. I have to say this was such a relaxed wedding and was full of love. I even got spoilt by James mum insisting I was well looked after - Made my day. Congratulations Rianna & James!
