Whitstable Castle wedding photographer

Melissa and Joe first met me whilst they were planning their wedding at Whitstable Castle in Kent at a wedding fair. We had a lovely chat and they both thought I would be the perfect match as their Whitstable Castle wedding photographer. The castle is a lovely venue which can sometimes be overlooked a little which is a shame as it really does provide a beautiful backdrop, and you get the added bonus of being able to say you got married in a castle.

We met up again a few weeks before their wedding just to go over the finer details and timings of the day, plus it gave us a lovely chance to have a coffee and a walk around the Whitstable Castle gardens and look for favourite wedding photography locations.

I arrived at the castle nice and early and I plenty of time for Melissa and Joes wedding ceremony. Early enough to get a few photos of the castle, the flowers, suits and Melissas dress, and then of course a few photos of Melissa and the children playing before it was time for everyone to get wedding ready.

The ceremony arrived in double quick time as it often does. You think you have plenty of time and all of a sudden that last hour just disappears for some reason. Honest, it does, it just evaporates. Melissa and Joe did leave some spare time in their timeline and please make sure you do as well.

One of the best things about being a Kent wedding photographer is that I get to enjoy all of the laughter and happiness that a wedding brings. Melissa and Joe didn't stop laughing for the entire time I was with them.

Although it was a very short amount of time that Melissa and Joe had booked me for as their wedding, we still managed to get lots of really lovely candid and relaxed wedding photographs. If you follow me in any way at all you will know that my sale of wedding photography is very relaxed but we still get a little creative and we still manage to get some beautiful wedding photos of you both, just in a very relaxed and candid way.

This is exactly what we did when we sneaked away from the guests for 20 minutes for some couples portraits around the grounds of Whitstable Castle. When you book me as your Kent wedding photographer this is one of the things we chat about and I will ask if you want to nip off for a little while to get some quiet time and some coupes portraits on your wedding day,

This time can be very relaxed, and we will have fun and some giggles but it gives you a few minutes to just enjoy being together and be romantic. Well, as romantic as you can be with me shoving a camera at you, sorry not sorry.

But look at what you come away with when you let yourself take a few minutes away (with me).
