Walking my dogs in the park today I noticed the trees starting to come back to life after winter, which means spring is not too far off and neither is the busy wedding season for me. I’ve got so many weddings from last year that I haven’t got around to displaying on my blog, so I thought I’d better dig one out. This wedding sticks in my mind from last August when the weather was unbearably hot.
Caroline & Chuck’s wedding at Benenden in Kent.
On a very hot August day I drove down to the beautiful village of Benenden in Kent for Caroline and Chuck’s wedding at St George’s church and with the reception in a huge marquee in Caroline’s parent’s garden. After photographing Caroline and the bridesmaids getting ready I nipped down to the local pub to photograph some of the guests and Chuck. For some reason there is always a pub within easy walking distance of a church, Chuck and the guests made their way on foot to the church after lunch and a cold drink. St George’s church is stunning both inside and out.
After the ceremony the reception was back at Caroline’s parent’s house with a large marquee in the garden with stunning views. Chuck is Nigerian and a few Nigerian traditions found their way into the day including the wedding party dancing into the wedding breakfast.
Natural wedding photography.
I specialise in natural wedding photography and capture the wedding day as it happens in a hands off approach, I do take a few group photographs as often it’s the first time people have got together in a while and most of my couples would like a handful of organised group photographs, other than these I do not set anything up but look for story telling images.
