Joyce and Stewart and their super relaxed wedding at The Tower House in Canterbury {sneak peek}

I knew from the first moment that I met Joyce and Stewart that their wedding would not follow a conventional path. Bearing in mind that they have been together for 21 years and that Joyce took the bold decision to propose to Stewart on 29 February this year … and that friends and family from all points of the compass attended … and that I was able to speak German during a wedding … oh, it was just a wonderful day from start to finish.  Joyce and Stewart were married at The Tower House in Canterbury and the processed through the streets of Canterbury to their reception venue at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge to round of spontaneous applause and even a quick rendition of “Here Comes the Bride” by some street musicians!

Between them, Joyce and Stewart have six grandchildren who all recited from the poem “The Owl and The Pussy Cat” after the ceremony.

We strolled through Solly’s Orchard and past the monastery, pausing for a few portraits and to allow guests to catch up.

This was the first time that I had photographed at the Cathedral Lodge and the gardens afford amazing views of the Cathedral which Stewart and Joyce’s guests very much enjoyed.

All in all, it was a wedding that I will never forget. The joy, the smiles, the processing through the City streets, and the absolute delight that this couple have finally tied the knot!
