Hannah & Dan
Arnold Hills Hall, Penshurst
Hannah and Dan were such a brilliant couple and totally trusted me to capture their most special day. Theirs was a relaxed and rustic Autumnal wedding in early October. It was simple and intimate and packed with handmade details; the flowers were designed by Dan’s mum, the cakes were all made by Hannah’s mum and Hannah’s vintage inspired dress was made by Dan’s aunt. They even had a friend play their first dance for them. Having known Hannah and Dan before they even got engaged, I was honoured to photograph their wedding day and made to feel so welcome by their friends and family. It was an awesome day. The church at Penshurst was stunning, the light was gorgeous and the flowers were bursting with autumnal colours. I know Dan felt quite nervous about being photographed but on the day he was so consumed by the day that his nerves didn’t show at all. After the ceremony we snuck off for some intimate couple photos while the guests made their way to Penshurst Hall for tea and cake. Everyone was so happy and relaxed and the deliberately laid back approach really worked for Hannah and Dan – no rushing around, no stress, just happy smiley faces everywhere. And this always makes for the best photographs!
