Here are some of my favourite wedding photographs from a wedding I covered back in the winter (seems a long time ago to be blogging about snowy days when the UK is experiencing 30 degrees plus, but that’s how far behind I am with wedding blogging, sorry!!) for my great friends Gemma and Mark. I was honoured when they asked me to photograph their wedding, which was to be held at their local church, St Paul’s Maidstone, with a reception at Turkey Mill – an extremely popular and photogenic wedding venue, again in Maidstone.
I started the day off with Gemma and her bridemaids (two being her sisters, who I also know) at a local hotel for bridal preparations. Gemma was then joined by her parents and her cute nephew George (who appears in lots of photos….) to continue preparations.
After leaving the girls I headed to St Paul’s – a modern church but really bright and colourful inside where I captured guest arrivals before the groom and best man arrived. A quick portrait session and a ring shot in the snow (it had to be done!) and then I waited for the bridal party to arrive…which was the most unusual I’ve done so far. No large Rolls Royce’s or Bentley’s for Gemma – the bridal party arrived in two tiny original Fiat 100’s – very, very cute (although not the easiest to exit!).
After the beautiful ceremony, the bride and groom headed outside into the amazing sunshine (the snow of the previous few days had just started to clear) to greet their guests and for confetti. Bride and Groom then made their exit in one of the Fiat’s to make their way to the Turkey Mill.
Come back n a few days for part two of Gemma and Mark’s wedding – their reception at the Turkey Mill!
