Update:  Have received some lovely feedback from this great day which I wanted to share:

Wow, we absolutely love them! You have done an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier. The photos are better than we could have possibly imagined.

Thank you so much for capturing so many of the moments of the day that we missed. We loved going through them as it brought back so many memories. We also love that so many of our family and friends have been captured. Just perfect.

The other thing that we wanted to mention is how lovely it was to have you there on the day. We have no idea when you were taking the pics…!!

Also the talented Vicki Lord who was the hair stylist at this wedding has also blogged about the day here.

and who also sent some kind words:

You are an amazing photographer!!!!!!! I’ve worked with loads of photographers doing shoots and weddings etc….. But your work is by far the best I’ve ever seen. I actually cried when I saw Lou’s wedding images, you captured every second of their special day. It was like I was there too!

Last Saturday was the hottest day of the year, it was also the day for the Kent Wedding of Adam and Louisa and the lovely venue of Tonbridge Castle, followed by the reception held at the stunning and rarely seen these days Schools at Somerhill just down the road.

I was approached last year by Adam and Louisa to cover their wedding for them, and its always nice to meet such a couple whose ideas about photography tie in well to how I like to go about things.  The day itself was a scorcher, but considering how wet a summer it’s been on the whole the weather was just great for my wedding photography!

Louisa and the bridesmaids got ready at their house in Maidstone, and Louisa’s handmade dress was stunning and yet perfect for such a hot day!  Everyone then headed off to the ceremony at Tonbridge Castle, which itself was an emotional thing with a few tears from both Adam and Louisa.

The Schools at Somerhill now entertain only the odd wedding each year for those that know someone who works there (which Adam and Louisa luckily do!), so its rarely seen and I have to say I was really impressed by the stunning building and grounds when I first pulled up.  As a venue it made for great documentary wedding photography and feel lucky to have been able to photograph in such a place.   After the wedding breakfast, a bit of magic (!) and speeches packed with emotion Adam and Louisa put on a lovely choreographed first dance, a waltz that Adam was dreading a bit put pulled off perfectly!

As usual below are a handful of my favourites from the day, please feel free to comment or share through Facebook or Twitter.
