A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure in photographing the Kent Wedding of Hannah and Luke at the stunning venue of Penshurst Place. This somewhere I am very familiar with having worked here before as documentary wedding photographer, and am lucky enough for them to have me down as one of their recommended photographers.
It’s probably one of my favourite venues in Kent for photographing weddings. As well as boasting vast and beautiful gardens, it has an abundance of character both inside and out, the highlight of which is the breathtaking baronial’s hall dating back to 1341.
Hannah and Luke approached me last year to photograph their big day and were keen on my approach to document the day as it happens with no intervention aside from a small handful of group shots, and this suited me down to the ground! Come the day, Hannah and the girls got ready in the Leicester Arms Hotel in Penshurst Village, and with the day forecasted for heavy rain, things weren’t looking hopeful for and shots around the grounds, although Hannah being organised as she was brolleys were on hand! Amazingly though the weather held out, and after a lovely ceremony in the upstairs Sunderland Room where Luke and Hannah couldn’t take their eyes off each other, we all headed outside.
A wander around the gardens followed and with the overcast skies producing some great soft diffused light, informally photographing such a laid back happy couple was a pleasure. Back into the baronial hall for the wedding breakfast, emotional and hilarious speeches, topped off by a first dance and cracking band made for a special day!
As usual below are some of my picks from the day. Please feel free to comment or share via Facebook or Twitter, it’s always appreciated!
