I've been wanting to photograph a wedding at Preston Court in Kent for quite a while, so when I first received an enquiry from Danielle and Jamie I was holding my fingers crossed hoping they'd book me for their wedding day)) They did and I couldn't have asked for a better couple)) Preston Court was a perfect venue for them - full of character, eclectic and quirky. Danielle and her bridesmaids got ready at The Olde Bell hotel in Sandwich, and arrived for the ceremony in style in a vintage Volkswagen beetle and orange campervan. Danielle and Jamie got married outside (thank you, thank you English weather!) on a little island on a lake, surrounded by their nearest and dearest, including their two children. The sun came out and guests were mingling enjoying pimms and champagne. Peacocks were wandering around showing off their colours. Fabulous vintage Victorian carousel proved to be popular not only amongst kids, but also adult guests. Heartfelt speeches took place later in the evening. The kind that made me shed a tear behind the camera)) The band set up, and some danced the night away, whilst others had fun on a lit up carousel and enjoyed fish&chips. Perfect day if you ask me! Here is how it all happened:
"Jamie and I would like to say a huge thankyou to you for all your hard work on the day. The photographs are beautiful and we really love them. The pictures of the speeches are fantastic and you have really captured what was going on, we didn't even notice you were there taking them. It's been really lovely for us to go through them and look back at the day. We will be in touch about our wedding book when we return from honeymoon if thats ok, we will be spoiled for choice. Again thank you!!!!!! Danielle & Jamie"
