Here are some of my favourite Spa Hotel wedding photography images from the recent wedding of Emily & Dan. The service was held in the fantastic church of St John The Baptist in the beautiful Kent village of Penshurst. This church is so photogenic and has so much history, it’s just awesome! The reception was held at The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells. The day was filled with loads of natural emotion, lots of tender, loving moments and then lots of laughter the next minute, which makes my job as a wedding photographer a bit easier!!
I started the day at Emily’s parents beautiful cottage in the Kent countryside for bridal preparations before making the short journey to the village of Penshurst to meet up with Dan and the boys. Once the guests had made their way into the church I captured Emily’s arrival by car, and then went through the courtyard to capture her walk up the path. I had visualised that this would be a great shot with the leading lines of the path, but then Emily played her part by gently cuddling into her Dad in a moment of true emotion. I knew then that I’d captured one of my favourite images of the year.
After the service the bride and groom made their way to the lovely Spa Hotel Tunbridge Wells for their wedding breakfast. After bride and groom shots on the bridge, group shots up on the lawn and candids, the wedding party made their way in for the wedding breakfast. After this, we had some amazing speeches. I won’t repeat what was said to get that reaction from Emily but it was certainly funny!!!!
Here are some of my favourites from their day – congratulations Emily and Dan!
