A Cooling Castle wedding for the Gorgeous Tom & Rachel
I knew this was going to be a lovely wedding, when I sat down to discuss the group shots, I had a feeling in my bones!!
Such a lovely couple. They did make me laugh, it was like role reversal, Rachel was the organised one, and Tom was the creative one, making all their decorations! You never see the guys doing that, it was lovely to see!
One thing was sure about this wedding, they certainly had the right attitude, they just wanted to have a fun day, and that they did!
We started out at Rachels mums house, whilst the girls got their make-up and hair done, and then took a drive over to the stunning Cooling Castle Barn in Rochester, where the girls finished getting ready in the bridal suite. Wow I love this venue! The turrets and a few walls still remain from the original castle, and the barn & converted tractor sheds are absolutely amazing!! This venue has perfected everything, it’s immaculate.
So here are a few shots of my gorgeous girlies getting ready, all very relaxed…….
So, the equally gorgeous guys were ready, and of course, a few cheeky shots of them too before the action kicks off……
So, our lovely Rachel was making her way round, everyone was ushered in, whilst being soothed by the sounds of Fiona their harpist (www.harpist.uk.com), it was a lovely ceremony. I have to say the registrar gave probably the best ceremony I’ve ever seen, he was like an actor performing, it was great!!
Lovely ceremony! For such a cold February day, the sun was actually really powerful, and when I saw that there was a humungous cloud blocking the sunshine, I whipped them outside before it dissappeared. Photographers, we’re never happy with the weather, but give us a bit of cloud and we’re well away!! 🙂 So, for some shots of our gorgeous couple. I really could have just carried on taking pictures of these 2 lovelies for like…ever!! But we had a schedule to stick too, have a little peek at my favs……
Seriously gorgeous!!! So time for a few group shots, while their guests mingled with drinks inside in the warm.
Gorgeous characters! There are just soooooo many images that I want to show you all from this wedding. So we musn’t forget about capturing all those lovely details of the venue and the reception….
I stay with you throughout your meal, capturing you and your guests chilling and having what they came for, a darn good bit of fun. Great characters at this wedding. Tom and Rachel chose designated carvers for each of their tables, quirky fun idea!
Here’s a selection….
Such a brilliant wedding, with such great people. Tom and Rachel, you are such a lovely couple! I can see from a distance through my lens, exactly how well you get on, you’re such a cute couple, that are definately made for each other. You certainly don’t need it, but I wish you all the luck and happiness for your future together. Keep in touch guys xx
