The Gallivant Wedding / Chris and Gemma

Kent Wedding Galleries

I’m not sure there can be many better settings for a wedding day than Camber Sands on a glorious sunny day can there? The Gallivant Hotel in Rye has this really cool kind of beach shack vibe going on which I really liked and I have to say ,when the weather is on your side, this place is just a stunning choice for a wedding.

Anyone who’s grown up in Kent or Sussex has to have visited Camber Sands right?, I can remember vividly my mum and dad taking me and my brother there when we were kids, about 8 or 9 I think, and the two of us wandering off and getting lost in the sand dunes. We were actually found by a lifeguard playing in the sand as my parents frantically searched the beach. It’s just one of those memories that has always stuck with me. Me and my wife have taken our kids there loads of times, (I always keep an eagle eye on them by the way!), so it felt kind of right to be shooting in this place I’ve always known so well.

Chris and Gemma like all the couples I work with wanted their wedding day to be relaxed and fun and you know what, they got exactly that.

There are certain couples that fit together, that are just right for each other. You see them with one another, you watch how they are with each other and you just think to yourself, yep, these two should be together. That's how it is when you are around Kelly and Nathan. I have been friends with Nathan since we were kids and when he first introduced us all to Kelly I think we all knew he had met the right girl for him. Kelly, also known as Shooting Suzie , is a great photographer herself. She was the person who first gave me the chance to do this fantastic job when she let me shoot a few weddings with her what seems like a lifetime ago. S ...

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 ...

Matt and Mary / Wedding Photography at Chartwell in Kent
When you are a wedding photographer, especially a wedding photographer who works in the UK, you learn to live with whatever the weather throws at you. Rain, hail, snow, it's all just  part of the job. Matt is British and Mary from the USA and they are both lucky enough to live in California, a place unaccustomed to too much rain. However, they chose to get married at the stunning Chartwell House in Kent, and in Kent we get a lot of the wet stuff. So, it was with little surprise that I woke up on the morning of Matt and Mary's wedding to very dark skies and the customary Kentish summer drizzle. This isn't something that would phase me usually ...
