Kent Wedding Photographer …. Yasmin & Wayne’s perfect day at The BarnYard in Upchurch, Kent
Yasmin and Wayne were looking for a Kent Wedding Photographer for their special day and I was so elated when they contacted me via facebook to view my wedding packages. Within just days of their consultation the called to say they were ready to book my photography service. The chosen wedding venue is nestled in the heart of the Kentish Countryside and has a very enchanting setting. The BarnYard is surrounded by 150 acres of stunning landscape, combining rolling hills, natural woodland and romantic orchards, creating a haven for the perfect wedding. kent wedding photographer
I arrived fresh and bright at Yasmin’s home at 10.30am sharp and after having some welcome hugs with the bridal party I set to work creating some lovely compositions of the pretty wedding details, the dress, bowed shoes, ornate jewellery, the blue garter and the stunning yellow and fuschia pink rose bouquets. Yasmin had chosen a very feminine white laced mermaid wedding dress, which was finished with a satin belt, tied into a bow. I absolutely loved yasmin’s hair up do, styled into a pretty fanned bun, with curled bangs left to freely frame her face. The flower girls all sported ballerina hair bun up-dos which looked really cute. Yasmin remained pretty calm until the dress was zipped and tied, then she inhaled deeply as she visualised herself walking down the aisle. kent wedding photography. wedding photographer kent
The coach and horses had arrived and the bridal party stole one more quick look in the mirror before leaving home. The girls were so excited and the father of the bride, brimming with pride. kent wedding photographer
The Ceremony was held in the Marquee which was set for a truly elegant experience and Wayne was eagerly waiting to see the love of his life dressed as his bride, and as soon as Yasmin was in view, tears welled in his eyes, he was breath taken by her beauty. There were lots of smiles and tears of joy throughout the ceremony which was lovely to capture. After the ceremony the newlyweds escaped to the country in their horse and carriage whilst the guests enjoyed their celebratory drinks and relaxed and mingled on the beautiful lawn.
Met with great anticipation the wedding couple returned, and after the group shots it was time for the romantic shots. So many wonderful photographic opportunities, the romantic wooden bridge built over a lily pond, home to exotic koi carp, set amongst stunning landscaping, the pretty apple orchard and the fountain, through which I captured one of my personal favourite portraits of the couple. The weather was perfect and the atmosphere, jubilant. The speeches followed as did the menu of exquisite wedding breakfast fine dining. The day was running so smoothly and as the clock struck 8pm it was time for the newlyweds’ first dance, with the entire wedding party gathered round, clapping and snapping with their cameras and phones, they swept the floor, looking into each others eyes and smiling.
It was a wonderful day and I said my goodbyes and left for home at 8.30pm. kent wedding photographer
