Sarah and Jon – a fabulous seaside wedding {sneak peek}

Hot on the heels (literally) of Clare and Carl’s wedding, I joined Sarah and Jon and their families and friends in Whitstable for a wedding where the temperature topped 27 degrees. Not for the faint hearted … nor for those wearing kilts, woollen socks, tweed waistcoats and jackets … but it was such an amazing day!

I started early at the hair salon with the bride and we then moved on to the Hotel Continental – the preparation room was at the front of the hotel, overlooking the beach and the cooling sea breezes were most welcome …

After a service at the church of Our Lady Immaculate, we travelled back down to East Quay (www.eqvenue.com), the bride, groom and bridesmaids arriving in style in a Quirky Campervan!

See what I mean about the kilts (and the airforce uniform … with sword later used to cut the cake)

The weather was spectacular and Sarah and Jon had time for a few portraits on the beach.

Joined by their absolutely gorgeous (and so well behaved) dog, Wilson, resplendent in bow tie (East Quay is a dog friendly wedding venue)!

Such an amazing day. Sarah, you looked absolutely stunning and your bridesmaids were the best ever to photograph … and Jon, thank you for letting me boss you and the boys around – I hope you think the pictures are worth it!

And to Wilson … you are just sooooo scrummy! Much love to you all xxx
