Here’s part two of the wedding photography from Lee and Alex’s amazing wedding at Brandshatch Place in Kent from back in September – part one is here if you want a recap.
After photographing the fun of the door games and the tea ceremony, it was still early! The guys went off to get changed out of their traditional Chinese outfits. While Alex greeted the guests, I photographed Lee getting changed into his suit, with a final helping hand from the Groomsmaids. Before the guests had made their way into The Oak Room to take their seats, Neil and I photographed the room – which is where the amazing attention to detail on this wedding started. Lee had spent a year hand-making a thousand origami paper birds to decorate all the rooms. The details continued on into the Terrace suite, as you’ll see from the end of this post.
Once the guests were seated for the ceremony, Lee and the Groomsmaids made their way down to join the ultra-cute flower-girl and pageboy and make their way into the ceremony. The ceremony was really touching as the guys made their vows to each other.
Following the ceremony, all the guests made their way out onto the front lawn into the beautiful Autumn sunshine, for drinks and canapes while we circulated photographing candidly. After photographing the group shots, I took Lee and Alex down the driveway for some couples shots, making use of the perspective, lovely colours and the lovely light.
Before the guests made their way into the Terrace suite, we spent quite a while photographing the amazing details. Lee and Alex had really gone to town, so there was a lot to cover – all the origami birds, plus a science fiction/computer game theme complete with personalised gaming signing boards, R2D2 sweet holder, astrological table details etc – we had a lot to shoot!! The room looked fantastic and it must have taken some effort from the guys!
here’s the last part of this epic wedding day – the longest day I’ve covered (luckily the guys kept me topped up with food, water and soft drinks), but amazing fun – speeches, candids, first dance, Chinese dance, epic dancing, light sabers etc.!
