feature weddings

Saturday 29 November - East Farleigh & Maidstone

Sian and Adrian

After a year of living in Kent it was lovely to be photographing a wedding just down the road - it certainly made a change from driving on the M25. I started the day with Sian getting ready at home and little details such as the bouquet she'd made herself, her tiny size3 shoes (but with the biggest heels) and the flowergirl covering herself in makeup!

In the village of East Farleigh the boys arrived at the church in their pride and joys, complete with personalised ribbons and them in silver waistcoats and ties.

As I'd been to their rehersal the previous day, I knew that the vicar had no issue with me photographing from any location. Whilst at the back I was able to capture the flowergirl running up and down the aisle and then snuck through to the choir stalls for some shots of the couple during the final hymn.

With the ceremony being held at 3pm, and sunset due at 3.56, the vicar blitzed the service so that I had around 15 minutes of light for some photos outside. Well... he did have another wedding to go to and it meant I managed to get in the family groups, confetti and bride and groom photos before it got too dark.

One of the shots the couple really wanted was with their convoy of Subaru cars and as it got dark I asked the drivers to turn on the headlights.

After finishing at the church we all headed over to Brewer Street Working Mens Club in Maidstone where a buffet was laid on, speeches were said and dancing continued well into the evening. I particularly liked that the cake figurine was lent by the groom's parents who'd had it on their cake.
