Judith and Paul – wedding at Archbishops Palace … the story of a crazy morning …

If you are expecting to see ceremony photographs from Judith and Paul’s wedding last September, then you will be disappointed. Judith and Paul had opted for the intimate ceremony offered at Archbishop’s Palace in Maidstone which only allows six people in the room – there wasn’t space for me … so I met my lovely couple at their home and we got the most amazing set of images. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me as I suspect that, never again, will I spend time with such a relaxed couple on their wedding day morning and I sincerely doubt that I will ever photograph a bride and groom in their wedding clothes holding their beloved hen, Mrs Ratty.

Judith had dried and then created her own bouquet … another personal touch.

Judith’s bridal make-up was subtle and was skillfully applied by the lovely Robeira at Euthalia Beauty.

So many quirky places enroute. With a handily placed salt bin …

The railway bridge has since been demolished … so this is a part of history now!

We had the herb gardens at Archbishops to ourselves for some “formal” shots of Judith, Paul and their guests.

Such fun to be able to capture such a relaxed and creative bride and groom. I’m pretty confident that our paths will cross again in the future and it was a joy to spend time with you both.  If only the walk back to the car hadn’t been such an uphill task …
