Laurenbythesea_Canterbury_Kent_Wedding_Photographer__The_Tuns_At_Staple_House_Wedding_Pics_Kent_Summer_Wedding_Outdoor_Wedding_Kent

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of capturing Gemma & Chris on their special day. What a day it was! The sun literally beamed down on them at The Tuns at Staple House.

It has been a crazy busy summer full of meeting and photographing lovely couples and some great families and Gemma & Chris and their family were some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. Thank you guys for welcoming me in and letting me a part of your day, you rock!

There is nothing I would rather do that capture moments of love and laughter between newlyweds. My poor blog has been a little neglected lately as I’ve been really busy, so I thought it was about time I shared some of the beautiful moments that I have seen this summer and what a great way to start than with the gorgeous Gemma and Chris.

Here is a sneak peek of Gemma & Chris’ day. Once again, thank you to them and their families for an amazing day!

Kent Wedding Photographer: Gemma & Chris’ Herne Bay Engagement Shoot

I for one cannot wait to see these two get married!

Gemma and Chris were such a sweet couple and spending a lovely warm summer’s evening with them walking along the seafront and the downs in Herne Bay, it was clear how smitten they are with each other.

I know that Gemma is so excited to walk up the aisle to marry the man of her dreams and that Chris will be equally as happy to make Gemma his wife. I’m excited to be their to capture it for them, bring on the wedding fun! They are getting married at The Tuns at Staple House near Canterbury, a beautiful venue where they can have the laid back family centred wedding celebrations they’ve been dreaming of.

I’m looking forward to sharing photos from their day soon but for now, here’s some of their beautiful love filled engagement shoot.

The week before last I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing tiny little newborn twins. Their lovely mum contacted me quite a while back now and we exchanged emails leading up to the arrival. I don’t know who was more excited!

Well James and Ella arrived happy and healthy and have been keeping Mummy and Daddy very busy. We had a wonderful day capturing some memories to treasure. I have so many really adorable photographs of little James & Ella, they were such little characters, but I couldn’t wait to share a little sneak peak. I hope you like them. Aren’t they cute?

Kent Wedding Photography: Turkey Mill- Lewis & Rox

The Orangery at Turkey Mill is a stunning location for a wedding in any season but with the Spring here it really is at it’s best. You don’t need me to tell you we’ve had a real lack of sunshine in the UK though so to say we were all over the moon when the sun came out to play on Roxanne & Lewis’ wedding day is a huge understatement!

Though the morning was grey, it cleared up just in time for the ceremony and shone down on the grounds into the early evening making for some gorgeous light! Guests were clearly doing their sun dances that morning! They did become Mr & Mrs Summers after all, so the sun needed to make an appearance! 

It was such a beautiful day full of colour, love, friendship and warmth. I had so much fun. The live band The Locals were amazing too so I boogied a bit from the photobooth.

Thank you Lewis and Rox for letting me be a part of your day and cannot wait to hear about your honeymoon around Asia! Here’s a selection from the day…..

The Portrait Diaries: Day 26

Sometime a photo takes you by surprise. This is one of those. We’d just changed set ups during a dance photoshoot so this was an inbetween shot while I tested the light and these ladies got themselves ready and into position. They were all very talented and inspirational dancers with incredible flexibility that I could only dream of!

Shortly after this, I got the shot we’d set out for, to capture them leaning back with their legs straight up in the air. I will share some more soon but for now just wanted to focus on the fact that though this isn’t the shot I was briefed to get, that’s the whole point. In the inbetween moments, magic happens and you can’t set a brief for that. That’s what I’m there to capture as a photographer. Not only those staged moments, but more importantly the magic inbetween.

I really love the expression on her face and the way the light is radiating around her. I also really like the contrast of the girl to the left looking down whilst the girl in the center is looking up. It’s as if they’re praying. Can a photo be spiritual? I think it can.

What do you think?

Margate Wedding Photography: A Quirky Homemade Wedding Full of Love & Laughter

I’m excited to share with you some photos from the wedding of Liza & James who got married earlier this month at Aberdeen House in Ramsgate, followed by a fun-filled reception at the one of a kind Walpole Bay Hotel in Margate.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I really do enjoy spending the day with the bride & groom and their families, sharing in all those moments of excitement and anticipation.

There’s always a couple of things that stand out in my mind from each wedding and this day was no different.  The personal highlight for me has to be the moment in the photograph below. The bride’s house had been buzzing all morning but started to empty until the only people left were Liza and her son Jordan who was accompanying her to the church and giving her away.

I can still visualise the excited look of anticipation on Liza’s face as I too left the house, one of realisation that this was really happening and she was soon to become Mrs Drake! Liza had told me previously that it would probably really difficult if not impossible to get a photo of Jordan because he hates having his picture taken. So I was really happy that I’d managed to make it bearable for Jordan and captured a really special moment I know that Liza will forever treasure.

Other great bits:

  • The gorgeous light pouring onto Liza’s unique dress (which was made by her Mum) and Liza trusting me to take her dress outside under an umbrella to find that light. (Thank you!!)
  • The cutest little dog I have possibly ever seen! I very nearly hid him in my bag and took him home!
  • The proud look on Jordan’s face as he walked his Mum down the aisle
  • The sound of four children collective playing the vintage keys of The Walpole Bay Hotel’s piano. ( look out for this photo in the slideshow)
  • The quirky collection of vintage goodies in every nook and cranny of the reception venue. Amazeballs!!
  • The huge grin on Liza’s face when her and James were pronounced man and wife! (See below)

Thank you to Kate Malyon who was my glamorous assistant and great company for the day and congratulations to Mr & Mrs Drake who have just returned from an amazing honeymoon in Paris!!

Enjoy the slide show and let me know your favourites in the comments section below. This one is mine…. pure unadulterated happiness!

Herne Bay Photographer- Guild of Photographers Bronze Bar Winner

I’m here doing a little happy dance so I thought I would share my joy. Really delighted to to say that I won a Bronze Bar in The Guild of Photographer’s monthly competition with this shot below. I was also commended for the two shots below it.

It means a lot to me to be recognised for hard work and I’m always trying to improve so hopefully may have a silver bar award to share with you in the future. Fingers crossed.

Keep Calm & Go Glamping: 18 photographers and 1 amazing weekend in Oxfordshire

Shooting Sisters, Glamping, Oxford glamping, photography holiday, Kent photographer, Herne Bay photographer

Two weekends ago saw me driving off on a mini adventure to the Oxfordshire countryside. Why you ask? Well, to join my Shooting Sisters for some glamping good times!! I’ve known these ladies for about ten months after we formed an online group of photographers from all over the UK. Formed by Jo of Summer Love Photography and Becky of Becky Male Photography who wanted to create an all female support network, nobody quite knew where it would lead but straight away knew it was something we wanted to be a part of.

We couldn’t all make this trip but 18 of us (eventually) made it together for a weekend to remember. Some of us got lost en route, some of us arrived in the pouring rain, some of us forgot our tooth brushes, and some of us slept in pyjamas, two pairs of socks, a jumper, dressing gown and under two duvets and STILL couldn’t get warm- but- I think I can safely say that regardless of the lack of sleep, or any other obstacle the weekend threw at us, we all took so much away from the weekend (and I’m not just talking about the leftover cider!)

Knowledge was shared, advice was given and friendships were built upon. We brought our online group to life and proved the value of our great support system many times over. Being in a job where we quite often sit alone infront of the computer it is so nice to have the opportunity to share experiences and hopes and dreams with people who are on the same page and understand the hard times from a first hand perspective. I genuinely think our support has contributed to one another’s success and given us the confidence to pursue our dreams. More importantly than succeeding, we have given each other the confidence to fail because now we know that even if something goes wrong, we will all be there to pick each other back up, dust each other down , learn from it and start over.

A quote I think sums up our group perfectly: “Learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow”- Albert Einstein

What started as a support network of 26 photographers has transformed into something much, much more than I think any of us had even considered. I’m really excited to see the group continue to grow, not only as a group, but to be a part of everyone’s individual journey and see how we can all help each other to be the best we can be. I feel really honoured to be a part of something so positive and genuinely life-changing.

I have a massive place in my heart for everyone of these ladies and know that each and every one of them will continue to do great things.

Here’s a little slideshow of my photos from the weekend along with a group shot courtesy of Becky Male and our lightpainting collaboration courtesy of Anna Bowkis.
