Sarah and Sam and the snow machine … their full wedding story at Hadlow Manor

In the downtime between Christmas and New Year, what better way to celebrate than to have a wedding! Sarah and Sam chose Hadlow Manor near Tonbridge for their entire day and I was delighted to be chosen to capture their day. As soon as I met Sarah and her family, I knew that this would be a wedding full of love and emotion … although Sam might rather have been fishing …

I met up with the boys who were struggling to solve the age old problem of … tying a cravat! I really should learn how to do it to help out as I’m so often asked!

The girls weren’t having any issues, helped with mince pies and champagne!

The ceremony room, despite being December, was bathed with light and made my job very easy indeed …

We were so lucky to be able to have some photographs in the grounds despite the light fading. It’s also nice for the bride and groom to have some time alone … with me, of course!

Before it was time for me to leave, we had time for a few night portraits and then it was time for the bride and groom to rejoin their guests and dance late into the night …
