Having lived for a number of years in Farningham, it was an absolute pleasure to be Corrine and Danny's Wedding Photographer in Eynsford and Brandshatch, North Kent. I'd met Corrine and Danny whilst shooting a previous wedding and they'd been great fun. Corrine's a fellow photographer, so I knew we'd have a great day recording their memories.
When I'd lived near, before I was a wedding photographer, I'd known of Brandshatch Place Hotel as a wedding venue and was really looking forward to taking shots there. A Georgian Manor, with rooms for guests, a spa and full facilities including space for a helicopter to land, I knew we were in for a treat! Having met Danny earlier in the day at the hotel, we continued on to the lovely Malt Shovel in Eynsford prior to the ceremony. Accompnied by the groomsmen and some of the earlier guests, Danny had the chance to unwind before heading in to the beautiful St Martin's of Tours Church in Eynsford.
This was a service with a difference! Corrine and Danny were married by Corrine's Mum, a priest in another parish, with choirs from both churches in attendance. This was easily one of the most personal and heartfelt ceremonies I've been lucky enough to be present at, with a moving sermon as well as empassioned singing. You could really feel the love in the 11th Century Norman building. After the ceremony, it was quickly outside for some photos at the ford and then back to Brandshatch place for the breakfast, drinks and dancing.
Corrine and Danny's friends and family were warm and welcoming to all and Danny's hilarious speech captured the mood perfectly. With a suprise song from Corrine, the evening entertainment kicked off with the frist dance and the disco continued into the night.
It was a privelege to be trusted capturing Corrine and Danny's wedding day, if you're interested in talking about me recording your, please contact me for a chat today!
