Although I am a Cambridge wedding photographer, I shoot weddings all over the UK. On this occasion it was 2 destinations in Kent, Penshurst Place near Tonbridge, followed by the Riverhill Himalayan Gardens near Sevenoaks for the wedding of Emma and Michael.
The ceremony was held at Penshurst Place, upon arrival there is an impressive sweeping driveway leading to a magnificent 14th century manor house. The day was filled with huge smiles from start to finish, Emma and Michael certainly have to be one of the happiest bride and groom that I have had the pleasure of capturing. The 11 acres of walled gardens at Penshurst Place are simply stunning and a great place to capture some portrait shots., including a 1 mile long yew hedge.
A short drive took everyone to the reception venue at the River Hill himalayan gardens. Emma and Michael chose very well with their venues as both Penshurst Place and the River Hill Himalayan Gardens are stunning, their guests were very spoilt, especially as the weather was sunny and beautiful too. River hill has a grade 2 listed Kentish ragstone house which is set within 130 acres of impressive gardens which enjoy the views of the Weald in Kent. Emma and Michael had opted for a beautiful marquee to hold their reception. Everything was perfect, the speeches were emotional and heartfelt and the jazz band that they had in the evening were amazing.
This was a great wedding, shooting with fellow pro Benjamin Tomms.
The venues were stunning, the weather was beautiful and above all Emma and Michael were great fun to capture and truly lovely people.
