Liz & Richard had their fabulous wedding on May 7th 2016 at St Clere Estate in Sevenoaks. It was a venue I had never shot at before and when we visited prior to the wedding I was blown away by the stunning house and gardens. I couldn’t wait for their wedding day!
The day of the wedding was just perfect, when I arrived at the venue I was greeted by blossom falling from the trees, creating a blanket of tiny white petals, it almost looked like freshly fallen snow but fortunately much less cold!
The ceremony itself was small and intimate, with just 8 guests. There was something about it being such a small party that made it so personal, you could feel the love radiating from the people who were there, and it was such a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
After the ceremony, there were canapes and bubbles served and I took this opportunity to sneak off with the newly-weds for a few pics of the two of them together. We wandered around the grounds and they just could not stop smiling! There were so many beautiful spots for their pictures as we walked along. Gorgeous natural tree archways, and everywhere the fresh colours of spring, including the field next door which was an ocean of yellow oil seeds…an absolute photographer’s dream and such a stunning backdrop!
The evening reception was held at the George and Dragon pub in Chipstead and it was here that they were joined by more close friends and family. The speeches were brilliant and I loved how chilled out and laidback it was, it reflected Liz and Richard perfectly. You could tell that all the people who were there felt honoured to be sharing their special day.
After the meal and speeches, we went outside where Liz and Richard had arranged for everyone to have sparklers which was amazing! I just LOOVVVEEE sparklers! I left as the party was really getting going and the dancefloor was filled with happy people and smiley faces.
Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special day, guys! It was truly amazing and I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
