Ratsbury Barn Wedding / Andy and Chloe

Kent Wedding Galleries Uncategorized

“Take as many photo’s as you like, the photos are important to Andy and Chloe, so they are important to us!” When I arrived at Ratsbury Barn to photograph the wedding of Andy and Chloe this was what the minister said to me, fantastic! So often when faith plays an important role in a wedding the photographer is banished to the back of the church or venue and told they can’t take any photos. I understand this and always respect the wishes of the church but it always makes me a bit sad  for the couple that there will be no photos of the actual ceremony. Not this time though, it was great to be up front and pay witness to Andy and Chloe in front of all their friends and family declaring their love and commitment to one another. Ratsbury barn was a really great venue for their wedding. Really realaxed and friendly atmosphere surrounded by beautiful Kent countryside. The weather forecast was looking decidedly British for the day but the rains held off to enable Andy and Chloe to have the outdoor ceremony they were hoping for and to enable us to get some great portraits at the world famous Chapel Down Winery. I’d previously shot an engagement session with Andy and Chloe and the great thing about that is the guys just instinctively knew how I worked and were able to just relax in to the session. Engagement shoots are awesome for this, it makes the portrait session really comfortable for the couple because they’ve done it all before! I had a great time with Andy and Chloe, congratulations guys!

I hope you enjoyed Part I of Charlie and Ashok's epic day (if not then check it out here!) After the ceremony at the incredible Gravesend Gurdwara it was back to Charlie's parents house to get ready for the wedding ceremony at St Mary's Church in Stansted, Kent. This is a beautiful little church surrounded by the stunning Kent countryside and whenever possible I always try to make the most of it when it comes to the couples portrait session. After that it was time to chill out and party, Ashok rocked his speech, the tears, beers and laughter flowed and a great day was had by everyone. I've been fortunate enough to capture two members of this ...
Sarah and Mark / Wedding Photography at The Chilston Park Hotel in Kent
Sarah and Mark's wedding was my first wedding of 2012 and really I couldn't have hoped for a more fantastic couple to work with. It was a cold winter's day in February at the Chilston Park Hotel, but the weather doesn't matter at all, it's the people that make a wedding day. Mix together fantastic family and friends, an incredibly moving speech from Mark and finish with a couple who so obviously love one another and this is what you get. Congratulations guys, I hope you like them.

2014 / A Year in the Life of a Kent Wedding Photographer
2014, a year in the crazy world of a Kent wedding photographer. It's not long until I shall be getting back in to the saddle to start photographying my first weddings of the year. I really can't wait to get going but before I move forward I wanted to take a look back. It seems life fly's by so quickly, looking back at some of these weddings, they seem like only yesterday. I got to meet and work with some incredible souls in 2014 and not only that I got to be a part of what was one of the most important days of their lives. More than anything I feel privileged to know that in the years to come they will be able to look back at the moments you ...
