The Wedding of Alexandra and Jan, The Salutation

Alexandra was a good friend from my art college days in London, over the years we lost contact as often is the way with ‘growing up’.

I received a very friendly email from Alex explaining that she had become engaged to a wonderful man by the name of Jan. Alex asked if I would mind travelling to London to photograph their wedding. We met at St James’s Park to discuss their day and to photograph their engagement shoot. Much like their future wedding day, the weather was spectacular and it was great to catch up with an old friend and make a new one in Jan.

We chatted, snapped, walked and eventually rested on some deck chairs to watch the last of the sun set over Buckingham Palace.

Theirs was an intimate wedding full of warm and kind people spanning four generations. It was a beautiful day and one that I was very much honoured to be a part of.

The Wedding of Charlotte and Alex at Marleybrook House, Canterbury

We met Charlotte and Alex over a coffee, just before their engagement photo shoot. We discussed their wedding day, how to act in front of the camera, how to best relax and get the most from their shoot and many other aspects of their planning... but mostly, we discussed the vintage fairground that was at their wedding venue.

The fairground made such a great focal point of the entertainment aspect of their day; the venue is unusual yet elegant, there were quiet walkways, hidden gardens, a lake, a beautiful bridal suite along with endless items of decorations to look at that the venue had at their disposal, but the couple got it just right in bringing in so many of their own things including around 100 empty gin bottles.

If you are looking for an unusual venue with picturesque settings and great entertainment for your guests in South East of England then this would be an ideal setting.

It was a fun, quirky, gin soaked day with plenty of laughs, unusual decorations and smiles all around. We were honoured to be a part of it.
