Lisa and Matt had elegant wedding at Preston Court near Canterbury in June this year.Its been great getting to know them and it was a treat to be contact by Lisa before they looked at venues to chat through some total gems in Kent that would be the perfect backdrop for what they were looking for. Lisa got ready at The Salutation in Sandwich and was being pampered by Zoe Marie Make Up, AMG Hair Design and Jenna J Hair along with her Mum and bridesmaids. Meanwhile my friend Peter was capturing the boys story over at Pilgrim’s Nook. Fabulous Sophia from Frida and Sophia Floral Design arrived with the florals and everyone gasped at the blousey beauties they’d created. Lisa looked stunning in her Justin Alexander Dress and I love her Rachel Simpson Shoes time whizzed by and we were ready to leave. Before we did we snuck into the lounge where the iconic Gogglebox sofa is tucked away for some photos where Steph and Dom record their show. When we arrived, my brother Andrew Dean Videography stepping in to capture their day and his lovely preview reel is available at the end of the post. They had such a fun reception full of lawn games and everyone moved to the courtyard for carousel fun to a glorious organ recital. Their luscious meal was expertly catered for by Stella Grove Personal Chef before their wonderful speeches followed. I’ll never forget one of the peacocks chiming in during Matt’s speech, so perfectly captured in Andrew’s video! We were blessed with the arrival of some gorgeous golden light just before the dance floor was ready to be torn up and boy did these guys rock it! As dusk arrived it was dark enough to play with sparklers and capture a treat of a carousel shot, tucked away at the end of this post!

Han & Chris had a wonderful celebration at the start of June, with morning prep at The George in Rye and their reception at Udimore Village Hall in Sussex. Their gorgeous children Bea & George were getting ready with her and I loved seeing them open their presents, George was so proud of his watch like Daddy’s! The got married at St Mary’s Church next to the village hall and their service ended with everyone joining in the last hymn with percussion instruments! The hall looked gorgeous with quirky props Han hired from lovely wedding stylist Bellaboo and Beau and the amazing naked cake by talented Sylvia’s Kitchen and you can read about Hannah’s cake here. In the marquee Han had worked away on the decor making so many things and the crowning glory was an amazing ceiling floral installation from Alex Ball Flowers and she is based in the village. Their day was lovely and relaxed and so we grabbed pockets of time for photos, exploring the stunning countryside surrounds and ramshackle old farm yard throughout the day. I love doing this as they’re never away from their guests for too long, get time alone together and we get to shoot in lots of different light. I’ve just ordered a lovely album for Han & Chris that was a surprise for them with Han’s Mum buying a voucher for me ahead of their wedding. I really can’t wait to see their day in print! Here’s a selection of images from their wonderful day……

Mr & Mrs May got married in May in the Maiden’s Tower at Leeds Castle and wow was it spectacular wedding! I’ve loved getting to know the guys and Kara and I have had a mutual cat appreciation society going on with our cat mad instagram posts, if she could have got Colin there, she’d have jumped at the chance! Kara got ready with her girls in the bridal sweet and she told me the story of getting their bespoke bridesmaid dresses made by Dig for Victory in Brighton, pretty as a peach they were! After taking their vows, they enjoyed a drinks reception in the springtime sun before we were all whisked off in a golf buggy to take in some of the grounds for photos. Craig had spotted the pavilion and said it looked amazing and he thought I’d love it – he wasn’t wrong, it was an amazing rustic structure totally laden with wisteria. I loved how pretty their reception room looked with jam jars of blooms and gingerbread men and women favours! We took a gentle wander through the grounds as the dreamy golden light arrived before kicking off their evening party with their first dance. Now, I mentioned wisteria…….check it out, it was just beautiful!
