Lee and Geoff and their summer wedding at Whitstable Castle – the story of their day …

With the advent of this current hot weather in the UK, it has served as a great reminder of Lee and Geoff’s celebrations at Whitstable Castle last July.  It was hot. Oh so very, very hot. With impending thunderstorms … but oh my goodness. What an amazing day.

I had met Lee and Geoff at a wedding fair earlier that year and I was delighted that they decided to book me on the spot.  This was to be my first wedding at the newly relaunched venue and I was really looking forward to it.  And because of Lee’s career in event management, I also knew that it would be well thought out and would run  to time.  And that the details would be amazing. As would the flowers … in fact, it was all pretty incredible!  So I’ll let the images do the talking …

I so enjoyed spending the day with this lovely, genuine couple. Despite the heat, you were both the most consummate hosts, making sure that everyone was comfortable and included. I was delighted too that you had albums and hope that both mums were delighted with the results.

I hope our paths cross again in the future and once again, thank you both so, so much. I loved every moment xx
