The story

Georgia and Joe had an absolutely beautiful wedding; they all made us feel so welcome and it was a delight to photograph their very special day for them.

The Preparations

I started my day with Georgia, her family and bridesmaids at her parents home.  The hair and make up for the girls was well under way when I arrived so I started my day with the details which included Georgia’s fabulous Jimmy Choo shoes!  Georgia had planned the day meticulously and even had a timeline written down so that she knew what had to be done and by when.  This made it a very relaxing morning and everything went to plan!  It was soon time to get Georgia into her dress which is one of my favourite parts of the day.  There’s always a visible change to a bride when she steps into her dress.  There’s often fun and laughter but also the nerves begin to take hold as the big event gets nearer.  Georgia was helped into her dress by her sister Danielle and her mum and both of them had to hold back the tears as Georgia looked stunning in her elegant gown from Orange Blossoms Bridal in Blacken.  She was keen for me to photograph her dads reaction when he first saw her in her dress and it was a lovely moment.

The Ceremony

Jim had met the groom and his groomsmen in the Royal Wells Hotel in Tunbridge Wells and travelled with them to St Paul’s Parish Church in Rusthall for the ceremony.  The ceremony was lovely and there was lots of laughter as the vicar, Ronnie, added some fun touches which really made it feel personal to the couple.   After the ceremony we shot a few couple portraits outside of the church and then headed off to the reception at High Rocks in Tunbridge Wells.

The Reception

It was a beautifully sunny day so we took the opportunity to grab a few shots of the couple around the rocks area before they walked through their confetti line and headed off to their wedding breakfast.  Speeches are always fun and these were no exception and we captured lots of shots of the couple and their guests roaring with laughter at the best mans speech!  After their meal, Georgia donned her flip flops and we headed up to the highest rocks to photograph the couple in the beautiful light of the setting sun before they danced their first dance which got the party started.  We had such fun with Georgia and Joe; they are such a lovely couple and they didn’t stop smiling and laughing all day, it was fabulous!
