Tunbridge Wells

Katie + James' Wedding at Swallows Oast, Ticehurst

I first met James nearly two years ago in Glasgow when I was photographing a wedding for Amanda and John. He hadn't even proposed by that point but I'm delighted that he and Katie had already decided that they were going to use me as soon as they were engaged! After a lovely engagement shoot in Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells near their home I was really excited about the wedding which was taking place in the gorgeous main barn of Swallows Oast. Despite driving down from London in hammering rain, as soon as I arrived at Katie's parent's house the sun came out and stayed out all day, although too late to go ahead with the ceremony outside. It felt like a summers evening as after the meal everyone gathered outside to throw confetti and for katie to toss the bouquet to the usual female excitement and male nervousness!

The food was provided by Capers Catering provided the meal which was finished off with a dramatic, sparkling (literally), profiterole pyramid.

And lastly a warm thanks to Amanda and John whose wedding I photographed in Glasgow nearly two years ago on the same day as the World Bag Pipe Championships, which was taking place in the park opposite! They did a beautiful reading for Katie and James and it was wonderful to see them again.

Kate and James' Engagement at Dunorlan Park

Last weekend I jumped in the car and headed down to Royal Tunbridge Wells to meet Kate and James for the first time and to do their engagement session.  James had attended a wedding I shot for Amanda and John ages ago in Glasgow and so even before they had got engaged they had decided they wanted me to do their photography.  I'm looking forward to catching up Amanda and John at the wedding at Swallows Oast in April. Kate and James chose to have the shoot at Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells - a now public park that was a privately landscaped gardens with a lake, grecian temple and fountain so loads of great spots for shooting.
