Chris & Clive

Cooling Castle, Cooling

Chris and Clive were so much fun! I'd photographed plenty of civil ceremonies before, but this was my first same sex marriage after the laws changed and they totally rocked it. Chris and Clive got married at the very beautiful Cooling Castle in Kent on a hot day in June. Cooling Castle is a great venue and fantastic to photograph at, especially in the Summer. The ceremony was held outside which is fab as I can move around really easily to take some very cool photographs. The ceremony itself was really emotional and very personal - it was lovely to see so much happiness present. The gardens at Cooling Castle are beautifully managed, and being mid-summer they were in full bloom and bursting with colour. Chris and Clive had a very distinctive colour palette for their wedding: everything was purple (even the cake!). The colours were amazing and really reflected them as a couple. Chris and Clive are fun-loving, spirited and full of life - their wedding was a riot of colour and energy. Such a fun day.

We absolutely love the photos, and think you have captured the day perfectly.

Helen cared about, and was as excited about our day, as much as us or any family member present that day. This was very much reflected in the superb record of our day that she produced. From the first time we met Helen, we knew that we’d found more than just a wedding photographer! Superb!
