kent documentary wedding photographer | Yvonne & Paul part 3

Here’s part 3 of my work as a kent documentary wedding photographer (ok, plus a few bride portraits!) from Yvonne and Paul’s wedding at St Mary’s Platt Church and Hotel du Vin, Tunbridge Wells.

After the wedding breakfast, Yvonne and Paul’s guests were entertained by an fantastic magician, who performed card tricks at each table to the amazement of the guests! The wedding then moved onto the speeches, with some highly emotional moments. We then moved onto the best mans speech (Paul’s brother) to bring a few more laughs to the proceedings.

it was still a lovely evening outside, so the guests made their way out to join the kids, who’d been entertained by a children’s entertainer, who was making great balloon animals for all the kids, whilst the jazz band played some background music.

I took one last opportunity for some portraits with the beautiful Yvonne around Hotel du Vin, before it was time for the cake cutting and then onto the first dance and party!

Here are some of my favourites from the last part of their day – congratulations once again to Yvonne & Paul!

kent wedding photographer | Yvonne & Paul part 2

Here’s part 2 of my work as a kent wedding photographer for Yvonne and Paul’s wedding at St Mary’s Platt Church and Hotel du Vin, Tunbridge Wells.

After the church service, Yvonne and Paul made their way to Hotel du Vin to enjoy their drinks reception on the back lawn in the glorious sunshine. As a few guests were delayed in the infamous Tunbridge Wells traffic, we had plenty of time to capture candids, and with loads of kids in attendance there were some great moments to be had. Once the group shots were done, I quickly made my way inside to photograph the reception room details, before Yvonne and Paul greeted their guests into the room with a receiving line. Once everyone was seated, they made their own grand entrance into the room.

During the downtime in the meal, I made a point of photographing Yvonne’s bouquet again, as she’d attached a locket with a photo of her sister, who sadly wasn’t around to share their special day – a lovely, touching tribute.

In a suitable gap in proceedings, I took Yvonne and Paul back outside for some couple’s shots. Someone wasn’t too happy at being left out though, and started to sneak into shot, so we did a few impromptu family shots and then went back into Hotel du Vin to find a few more spots for bride and groom portraits.

Come back soon for part 3, meanwhile here are a few of my favourite photos – enjoy!

St Mary’s Platt | Yvonne & Paul’s wedding part 1

Paul and Yvonne were married on a lovely hot day at St Mary’s Platt Church, followed by a lovely reception at my favourite Kent wedding venue – Hotel du Vin, Tunbridge Wells.

I started the day at Yvonne and Paul’s stunning house for bridal preparations. There was a real family feel, what with parents, aunts and uncles, Yvonne and Paul’s three children and the dog all in attendance – luckily, room wasn’t something they are short of! In fact, they were hosting a further wedding reception the next day with a marquee in the grounds of their beautiful house – hence Yvonne had two wedding dresses for me to photograph!
It took a few minutes for the kids to get used to me being there, and my photojournalistic ninja skills were sorely tested for a while by Paul and Yvonne’s eldest, with shouts of ‘Mummy, that man’s taking your picture again!!!’ from wherever I was trying to shoot. They all soon enjoyed playing up for the camera and I was able to get some great shots.

I then made my way to the church of St Mary’s Platt just a short drive from Yvonne and Paul’s house, to meet up with the boys, and then await the bride’s arrival. The church is lovely and light, although I was restricted to shooting from the back of the church. After the service, we made our way outside for Yvonne and Paul to greet their guests, then shot a few quick bride and groom portraits as a confetti line was organised down the lovely steps. Yvonne and Paul then jumped into their beautiful car for the journey to Hotel du Vin for the next part of their wedding day.

Here are my favourite wedding photographs from part 1 of Yvonne and Paul’s day, come back soon for part 2!
