I was Jade and Stuarts wedding photographer in Kent back in November photographing their church wedding ceremony and reception at Dale Hill Golf Club. they booked me after being referred by friends of theirs whose wedding I had photographed a few years previously and who still keep in touch for family photo sessions.
I first met Jade and Stuart at their pre wedding shoot which we scheduled for a summer evening. We hit the jackpot with a stunning sunset and Jade loved the results and although their wedding day was in November I hoped we might get lucky with the weather again.
On the day I started with Jade and her friends taking some photos of them getting ready and ten travelled to the church to capture some photographs of Stuart and the guests arriving for the ceremony. With a little drizzle and grey sky looming it wasn’t looking promising for Jade’s arrival in the horse and carriage but thankfully it stayed dry long enough and she was greeted by some very excited flower girls!
A very friendly and accommodating vicar made my job photographing the ceremony a pleasurable one. I always make an effort to be as discreet and unobtrusive as possible during a church ceremony particularly but its still always nice to know the vicar is on your side.
After a few group photographs outside the church it was time to get back to the reception before everyone became too cold. However the conditions didn’t prevent Jade and Stuart driving the golf buggy out to the furthest point on the course for some couple photographs. Although we weren’t fortunate enough to be blessed with the same kind of sky we had for the pre wedding photoshoot, a combination of the beautiful views across the Kent countryside and some off camera flash created some stunning portraits we were all happy with.
Despite the falling temperatures while we had to do the remaining group photos outside, Jade and Stuart were brilliant and such easy people to work with it was a real pleasure to be a part of their day ad I wish them every happiness for their future together.
Jade & Stuarts Google Review:-
“Helen was our wedding photographer and we have nothing but great feedback. She captured the day so well from start to finish, capturing so many moments we can cherish forever! She done a great job of taking photos of every guest, while blending in the background making people feel relaxed, not aware they were having there photo taken. We didn’t have to wait long either for our photos after the wedding. Would recommend to everyone!”
