It was a typically cold winters day and for some reason I had decided not to bring a coat, why would anyone do that????? Anyway, as always my assistant (Peter Denness) and I arrived nice and early to have a look around.
Cooling Castle is a very popular wedding venue with bookings throughout the year but until now had escaped me so I was pleased to bring a bit of Gomes Photography magic to the venue J
Kent Life Wedding Photographer: For the second time in a couple of weeks I was at Kent Life to photograph a cool and relaxed wedding. This time I was with Emma and Chris who had decided to tie the knot at this rather unique wedding venue in Kent. I knew Chris, the groom, as I photographed his sisters wedding a couple of years ago, so it was lovely to meet up with his family again.
Sole Street House Kent Wedding Photographer: It was only when Jo contacted in July me regarding her Kent wedding that I heard about the fantastic Sole Street House as a wedding venue in Kent. We had a good chat about what she and future hubby Steve were looking for from their wedding photography. A few hours of coverage to capture the moments before and after the ceremony, keeping it relaxed and unobtrusive.
“Sole Street House near Faversham in Kent, is an old country house full of hidden quirks and quiet charm, standing at the heart of its own small estate in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.” – taken from the venues website. I think this is a very accurate description of a very unique wedding venue.
Kent Life Wedding Photography: So when another wedding photographer asked me to photograph his wedding I have to say I was extremely honoured. Martin Hobby is not just any wedding photographer either, he knows his stuff when it comes to wedding photography. He was announced as the SWPP Events Photographer of the Year so was the pressure on for me???? maybe 😉 Dawn his wife to be isn’t exactly a novice with the camera either so even more pressure.
Wedding Photographers in Kent: Last Saturday I was back in the garden of England for a beautiful summer wedding in Kent. Sam and David were married at Deal Town Hall which is a lovely Grade II listed building , built in 1803, perfect for wedding ceremonies in Kent. As a Kent wedding photographer it was my first time photographing at the Town Hall.
I started the day by visiting Sam at her mums house to get some informal bridal preparation photos. The atmosphere was very relaxed, calm and welcoming. Sam looked amazing in her dress.
Pine Calyx in Kent Wedding Photography: Just last Saturday I was back in Kent to photograph the wedding of Mark and Sam at Pine Calyx just next to St Margarets Bay in Kent. This totally unique building set into the chalk cliffs is a stunning wedding venue with views across to the white cliffs of Dover and beyond. My mobile phone even picked up a French network.
Asian Wedding Photography at Westerham Golf Club by Gomes Photography. A couple of weeks ago I was with Lee and Deepika to photograph their Hindu ceremony at Westerham Golf club in Kent . This was the second time this year that I have been asked to photograph a wedding at Westerham Golf Club. It’s a great venue with stunning views across the golf course. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming.
I really enjoy photographing Asian weddings as the vibrant colours, the fast pace and the finer details really compliments my style of wedding photography.
Kent Wedding Photography at the Riverhill Himalayan Gardens: I remember vividly the email that Michael and Louise sent me enquiring about my Kent wedding photography as the name of the venue really stood out.. Riverhill Himalayan Gardens. Not only that the couple described how the marquee was going to be decorated in Bombay boudoir theme by the Arabian Tent Company. I love weddings like this so was delighted when they chose me to photograph their big day.
Kent Weddings: First of all apologies for the lack of blog posts recently. There really isn’t any excuse however a weeks holiday in Turkey plus back to back weddings has kept me busy. I know I said I know excuses but there you go 🙂
So Grant and Suzanne wedding, what can I say about their Kent wedding . Well first of all they had the weather for it… it was hot which was a nice change and something I wasn’t expecting. Grant and Suzanne are a cool relaxed couple who booked me last year to photograph their wedding.
Rowhill Grange in Bexley Wedding Photography: Last weekend I was in Bexley in Kent to photograph the wedding of Gemma and Danny. I first met the couple one Sunday morning last year in their home where we discussed their wedding day.
The day came around very quickly and before I knew it I was at Rowhill Grange waiting to photograph Gemma getting ready before she headed off to St Johns church in Bexley for the service. A big thank you to the church for their hospitality and cooperation.
Hall Place and Gardens in Kent Wedding Photography: Hall Place and Gardens in Kent Wedding Photography is great however sometimes, just sometimes the weather is so bad on a wedding day that outdoor photographs simply isn’t going to happen. The jubilee weekend in London was one of those weekends. For Louise and Brandon whose wedding I photographed at the stunning Hall Place and Gardens the weather was deeply disappointing. So in true style we got together a few days later, when the weather had cheered up and did some outdoor photographs.
Brandon and Louise were keen to get back into their wedding outfits for an hours shoot.
Hall Place and Gardens in Bexley Kent Wedding Photography by Gomes Photography.
I first met Louise back in February when she asked me to photograph her wedding at Hall Place and Gardens in Bexley, Kent. Brandon, a US serving Soldier was back in the US so we had a chat over Skype to discuss their wedding photography requirements. Louise and Brandon wanted a mixture of natural documentary wedding photography with a few posed shots and a handful of groups.
Hop Farm in Kent Wedding Photography: My Jubilee weekend was very busy with three fantastic Kent weddings to photograph. On Jubilee Sunday I was at Hop Farm in Kent to photograph the open-air wedding of Emma and Chris. I knew that Emma was desperate for an outside wedding so I was a little worried when I arrived to find it raining and not looking likely to stop. When Chris arrived he seemed pretty calm and relaxed and was leaving the decision to have the ceremony outside or in to the bride (wise man). I was delighted to see the registrar who was at one of my weddings the previous week as he is a very relaxed man and appreciates it’s the brides day and was happy to accommodate her wishes. As he happens it stopped raining long enough to have the ceremony outside.
Kent Wedding Photographer: I first met Julie, what seems like years ago but was in fact only last October, at her home in Tunbridge Wells in Kent to discuss her May 2012 Wedding. Tim at the time was out working so Julie explained to me the plans for her wedding and the type of wedding photography she was after. Natural, not overly posed and lots of photos of family and friends having a good time. As this type of wedding photography is my speciality I was delighted when Julie and Tim commissioned me to be their Kent wedding photographer.
Westerham Golf Club Wedding Photography: I normally shoot weddings in Central London so when I am commissioned to photograph a Kent Wedding I jump at the opportunity. Wedding Photography in Kent is always going to be a treat considering it’s the ‘Garden of England’ and the views from the balcony at Westerham Golf Club you can see how the county obtained that name.
On Saturday 19th May 2012 I was back in Kent to photograph the wedding of Stephanie and James. The couple tied the knot at All Souls Church in Crockenhill, Kent followed by the reception at the beautiful popular Kent wedding venue, Westerham Golf Club.
I consider myself to be very lucky to attend the weddings I do in Kent and London on a weekly basis and as I said on my Facebook page I am humbled when bride and grooms ask me to photograph their day. I take the responsibility of photographing a wedding very seriously, quite simply I love being a Wedding photographer in the UK.
The wedding of Jenny and Aaron last Saturday at Winters Barn in Canterbury Kent was emotional and inspiring and I met some genuinely amazing people. Thank you to the couple, your family and friends for making me feel so welcome, I hope I have done you proud with your images.
Saturday 11th Feb 2012 was the start of my wedding photography season and what a better way than a wedding in Kent. This was the wedding of Olu and Nada at the Archbishops Palace in Maidstone Kent followed by the reception at the Barn Restaurant. Wedding Photography at the Archbishops Palace in Kent is fantastic with its grade 1 listed features and canal side location.
The weather today was bitterly cold but bright and sunny which is a lovely combination, with snow still laying on the ground. The wedding was an intimate one with close family and friends gathered to watch this lovely couple get wed. Olu and Nada truly are a lovely couple and I thank them and their guests for making me feel so welcome.
Anita and Ant asked me to be their Lympne Caste wedding photographer only a few months ago and it was date free in my diary… New Years Eve. The medieval Lympne Castle in Kent really is a fantastic venue to get married with so many photo opportunities, even on cold dark winter nights. Anita and Ant wanted a mixture of documentary images and a posed contemporary style, which is exactly how I approach a wedding day. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible during the documentary phase and the contemporary posed images are done quickly and efficiently, allowing my couples to get back to their guests as soon as possible.
Lympne Castle weddings: Last Saturdays wedding I have been looking forward to ever since Angela and Ed asked me to photograph their Lympne Castle wedding. Lympne Castle is a beautiful 13th century Castle in Kent which is a popular wedding venue in Kent and one that I will be visiting many times in 2012.
Angela and Ed actually got married at St Teresa’s RC Church in Maidstone before heading off to Lympne Castle for the reception. It was a fantastic day even the weather held up for most of the day, even the sun made an appearance just as the couple left the church. Sadly it was well and truly gone by the time I started the group photos back at the castle.
