Chafford Park Wedding | Lizzy and Josh
The weather couldn’t have been better for Lizzy and Josh’s beautiful September wedding at Chafford Park near Tunbridge Wells in Kent.
They were both really relaxed and wanted lots of natural photography which captured the feel of their day spent with their loved ones. Lizzy is incredibly creative and made many of the beautiful elements for the day including the little bird paintings which they used as table markers. Lizzy’s mum did the flowers for the day and I particularly loved the little jars of flowers which hung on the chairs adjacent to the aisle, just like pew ends in a church.
Josh was getting ready at the Leicester Arms in Penshurst and my second shooter Lisa joined him and the boys there before heading to Chafford Park to meet up with guests and have some more formal photos done.
I joined Lizzy in the Long Barn with her girls where they had stayed the night before. Harriet Rainbow make-up artist and Stephanie from Stephanique Styling was busy pampering the bride and the bridesmaids so I took some time to capture the details before it was time for the all-important dress.
Lizzy wore a beautiful gown from David’s Bridal with full length veil. In a flash it was time to head off to the barn and the ceremony with her dad and beautiful maids. The barn has the most beautiful light and one of my favourite pictures of the day is of Lizzy arriving with her dad watched by the guests.
The ceremony was followed by lots of emotional greetings from the guests. This is such a fab part of the day as the expressions make for the most wonderful candid shots of guests. After confetti the guests had drinks outside in the sunshine while I whisked the couple off for a little bit of time to themselves and some shots of just the two of them.
Dinner was followed by some emotional speeches leading into the fun and laughter of the evening helped along by the Fitzroy Six band. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple.
Take a little peek at their day!
