Catherine and Andrew’s wedding at The Guildhall in Sandwich … and Logan … {sneak peek}

Logan is four. He is super cute. And he knows it.  He was such a huge part of Catherine and Andrew’s fabulous wedding at The Guildhall in Sandwich and was cheeky and cute and well behaved throughout!

I first met Catherine with her parents at a wedding fair and was complemented on my work, particularly by Catherine’s father.  I learned further that Catherine’s parents are keen photographers and was so pleased that Catherine and Andrew decided to book with me so that I could capture their day in the style that they liked so much.

And it didn’t disappoint – Catherine and Andrew gave me so much portrait time with them and it really was worth every minute – a huge thank you also to best man, Daniel, who walked the streets of Sandwich with us, stopping traffic when required and holding reflectors too!

Can you spot cheeky Logan?

Sandwich is a beautiful town with many medieval houses still remaining. It was one of the Cinque Ports but is now located around two miles inland from the sea.

And seems to be popular with cyclists …

It has so many great places in which to photograph a bride and groom …

And can be a little windy at times!

The weather was perfect, warm enough to stroll along the river and for guests to enjoy the views.

There are so many great photographs from this lovely couple’s wedding and I’m looking forward to working through and editing them to share on their return from their “family moon”.

Thank you both again for giving me so much time with you and for being such fun to work with … much love xxx

Lorraine and Isaac and their sunshine and showers Canterbury wedding {sneak peek}

I was delighted to be booked by Lorraine and Isaac and we met up before their wedding to look through albums and chat more about their day. As Lorraine had grown up in Canterbury, they decided to marry at St Thomas’s in Burgate, a beautiful Catholic church in the heart of Canterbury and then to continue their celebrations at Westgate Hall which is at the other end of the high street. Lorraine’s colours were blue and daffodil yellow which suited her bridesmaids’ colouring perfectly and really shone through what was, at times, a rainy day!  In fact, as Isaac arrived, the heavens opened and the boys had to charge through a huge downpour … but as Lorraine arrived (a little late …), the sun had broken through again and we didn’t see any more rain for the entire day.

Isaac showed no hint of nerves … and it was such fun to photograph the boys in the doorway of the church …

And Jamal and Bianca – oh you are just gorgeous!

Lorraine’s dress was beautifully detailed and suited her perfectly, and she really stole the show as she, escorted by her brother Charles, entered the church.

My second shooter, Sarah, climbed the narrow stairs and captured this wonderful moment at the exchange of rings …

We had time for a tiny walk in Canterbury but Lorraine and Isaac were keen to get off to their reception venue so that they could spend time with all their guests …

We managed to sneak out for a few portraits just around the corner from the reception venue and this lovely couple only had eyes for each other!

Isaac, you have the most engaging smile and Lorraine, you worked it!

The first dance was in front of their guests – Charles invited them all to stand and join in and it created a wonderful backdrop for the first dance shots!

Sarah and I left to a full dance floor and I don’t doubt that it remained full for the entire evening. It was a pleasure to work at this venue and this was their first wedding reception held at the Westgate Hall … the first of many, I’m sure.

Thank you again to Lorraine and Isaac for being such a joy to photograph and Sarah and I had an absolutely amazing time … we wish you all the luck, joy and happiness you deserve and can’t wait to catch up on your return … from your second wedding in Kenya! Much love xxx
