What can I say?… Once upon a time there was a girl called Kate… She was a strong beautiful girl who turned into a fantastic brilliant woman who is my dear friend…. She waited for Mr Right for a long time and then all of a sudden her prince charming arrived. One of the most emotional weddings Ive shot so far, my lovely friend Kate and her Charlie. Set in the town where Kate grew up with her beautiful sisters, Kate and Charlie married in Tunbridge Wells in Kent at the beautiful church in the Pantiles. Charlie obviously taken aback at the sight of his bride walking towards him down the aisle; Kate wore a stunning Sophia Tolli gown and her make up was expertly done by her sister Georgia . After an emotional ceremony they headed over to the pub for a congratulatory drink with all their nearest family and friends. My second shooter for the day was the amazing Carly from Kooky Weddings and we flitted between guests and family, capturing the day together with ease, often interrupted by Rupert the master of ceremonies, Kate’s closest male cousin and fellow photographer, with a glass of champagne or two.
The reception was held back at Kate’s parents’ beautiful home adorned with a woodland back yard and a stunning field next door to house the perfectly planned and meticulously designed marquee. (We knew it would be a stylish wedding Kate.)
Vanity Fair inspired group photographs and woodland set speeches at dusk, marshmallows in the fire-pit and sparklers to start off the music and dancing, seriously this wedding was the stuff of dreams.
Spending time with these people is heart-warming and working with Kooky shooting my friends wedding was a pleasure. Seeing you two get hitched was stunning and felt so right.
You two are amazingly matched, hilarious, crazy and so, so, down to earth, even though your wedding was fairytale. What an honour to be your wedding photographer for the day. Happy life you two. You deserve it.
