A rather wet Friday 18th March saw me photograph the marriage of Amber & Andy at St Paul’s Church Rusthall, followed by the reception at the ever-lovely The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells.
St Paul’s is a beautiful large church with amazing light, it also has candles raised high on the end of each pew which adds to the atmosphere and makes for great leading lines for photography. St Paul’s also has the coolest vicar in Kent – the amazingly laid-back Ronnie, who lets me get on with my job and always has a great smile on his face!
After the ceremony, Amber and Andy made their way back to the Spa Hotel Tunbridge Wells for their wedding breakfast.
The weather didn’t dampen Amber and Andy’s spirits due to their attitude (I guess if you get married in March, good weather is a bonus if it happens!) and also some fantastic flexibility by the Spa in making a room available for photos at short notice (which I never even knew existed but will use now, even on sunny days!). We were hoping for clearer skies in the evening, but they didn’t materialise. A quick reccy of the Zagatos bar with my trusty videolight led to us getting some funky, moody shots whilst we waited for the rest of the guests to finish their meal – job done!
Congratulations to Amber and Andy! Here are some of my favourites from their day.
