Charlotte and Jon – their Oakwood House Hotel wedding sneak peek

That’s right, two sneak peeks in one day … the wedding season got off to a great start with back-to-back weddings this weekend. Sunday saw me with the absolutely lovely couple, Charlotte and Jon, their two little ones, Flick and Ollie (who, apparently, charges £10 per photo of him …) and their families and friends in a thoroughly enjoyable celebration at Oakwood House Hotel ( on the outskirts of Maidstone. Their venue has a particular meaning as Charlotte’s father worked there and she and her sister spent many a night snuggled up on the couches. It’s also near to where Charlotte went to school and the family live very close by. It was my first wedding here and I very much enjoyed finding little places to take photographs of this fab couple …

They smiled, and smiled and then smiled some more! Oh, they were so easy to photograph … I could have photographed them FOREVER!



For their group shot, I was hanging out of an upstairs window … sometimes group shots lack dynamism and, for some reason, the words “kiss the person next to you” came out of my mouth … I love the little flower girls’ reaction in the bottom left hand of this shot!


And this is their family … and little “£10 per shot” Ollie and beautiful Flick …


I couldn’t choose which images to show for Charlotte and Jon’s sneak peek … I am absolutely spoilt for choice …


Suffice it to say, I enjoyed every moment. Such great feedback and big smiles from your guests and the joy which surrounded you both was absolutely tangible. I hope you have the most amazing adventure and I can’t wait to share your images with you as soon as I possibly can. Thank you both for making my day so enjoyable and for your ability to stand out in the freezing cold and for sharing my enthusiasm … xxx
