Simon and Laura / Kent Wedding Photography at Mount Ephraim Gardens

Kent Wedding Galleries

It’s a funny thing but it really doesn’t matter how many weddings I photograph I always feel incredibly nervous whilst waiting to hear what the couple think of their wedding photos, it’s always been that way. My wife Claire recognizes it in me every time. I kind of go a bit quiet, keep checking my e-mails every 5 minutes, “stop worrying, it’ll be fine, they’ll love them” she says to me, but until I hear it from the couple themselves I really can’t help myself. Having spoke to other wedding photographers it’s a trait I think many of us share and to a degree it’s a good thing, it stops me being complacent, it drives me to push myself on and give every wedding everything I can.  But as much I dislike that feeling, I always forget it instantly as soon as I receive an e-mail like this.

“Hi Paul,

Just to let you know we have the photos. Wow! They are amazing. Truly awesome and beautiful colours! Thank you so so much! My favourites are the ones in the orchard. Good call! The slideshow is a lovely keepsake. Looking at them, brings it all back. It really as the best day and I am so glad we had you to capture it!

Should we ever require a photographer again, you would be our first and only choice. We will be highly recommending you. It seems that it may have already worked! My sister I think would like you to do some family photos of them all.

You are very talented Paul and it was so great to have you there. We wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Laura and Simon”

I’m lucky enough to work with some fantastic, decent and generous people, none more so than Laura and Simon. Here is the story of  their wedding at the stunning Mount Ephraim Gardens

Maria and John / Wedding Photography at The Lobster Shack in Whitstable
Maria and John's wedding was a day full of colour. From the amazing bridesmaids dresses to the bunting John's mum spent hours making, or the beach hut wedding card holder Maria's dad built for her, every part of the day was simply beautiful and even though the British weather and some seriously strong gale force winds played havoc with some of the girls hairdo's it really was a fantastic day. I wrote a little bit about Maria here, her and John are great friends of ours and it was an honour to be a part of their day. So, here is the story of our friends wedding, I hope I was able to do it justice. If you would like a bit more informatio ...

The Marine Hotel in Whitstable Wedding Photography / Tracy and Matt
Oh Whitstable beach, how I love thee : ) I've shot a lot of weddings in Whitstable, some absolute crackers! When the sun is shining and the winds are calm there are few better places to take photos. It's also a place I visit a lot with Claire and the kids, let them loose on the beach and sit down with some fish and chips whilst the kids wear themselves out, bliss. So I totally understood when Tracy and Matt got in touch and told me how important Whitstable had been in their relationship. The incredible wedding cake pretty much sums it up I think : ) "Hi Paul, We received the photos safely and we are delighted with them. Thank you so, so muc ...

Kyla and Tom / Kent Wedding Photography at Nettlestead Place
Kyla and Tom were my first wedding of the year and it was great to get back in to the swing of things with such a cool and laid back couple. I got to shoot an engagement session with these guys a couple of months back so I knew their wedding at Nettlestead Place would be just my kind of wedding, fun, colourful and full of love. The theme of the day was purple and orange, Kyla and Tom's favourite colours and Tom rocked an awesome pair of orange Converse trainers with his suit. Whilst the weather may have been a bit on the gloomy side their wedding was certainly not! The weddings are coming thick and fast for me now as the wedding season gets g ...
