Symone and Matt’s wedding- The Gardens, Yalding, Kent
I had the pleasure of photographing Symone and Matt’s wedding at the beautiful Gardens in Yalding, during the summer of this year, my first time shooting at this venue.
My day started at the family farm, a stunning place in the Kent countryside, which made for a great backdrop to bridal prep, a treasure trove of family history and photo’s. My colleague met with Matt and then headed over to the local pub to greet guests before making their way to the venue.
The ceremony was to be held outside in the lovely gardens, a fantastic feature of this venue. After the ceremony Symone and Matt were greeted with lot’s of hugs and kisses of congratulations, and then enjoyed some time with their family and friends.
I always like to spend a little time with the bride and groom for a few portraits, not too long, just a few nice moments as we zip around the venue, taking advantage of the little nooks and crannies that make for a good backdrop.
Another feature of this wicked venue is the very cool Tipi. The wedding breakfast is held here, and it was great to see all the guests huddled around their tables enjoying some great food and drink.
The evening continued with some crazy dance floor moves as the evening guests arrived, always a favourite time of mine, capturing guests really letting their hair down on the dance floor.
Thanks for a damn fine time and having us along.
