Paul & Katie's wedding was an autumn wedding but you would never know it wasn't the height of the summer with the sunshine and warm weather! Katie had opted out of any shots of her getting ready, some brides prefer a bit of chill time with their bridesmaids/family before the ceremony, so I had more time at the venue to get some detailed shots before everyone arrived.
I always tend to go a bit mad at East Quay with the room and detail shots as it always looks awesome here, even if simply decorated and the natural colours Paul & Katie had chosen with the subtle colour hints of lavender really looked beautiful!
Weddings are of course, a celebration of love but for Peter & Stephen, this was equally about having their family and friends celebrating every moment with them. You could see how much love they both had for each other and every guest, they just kinda made you feel all warm and fuzzy. They both also have such a passion for Margate. They love where they live and it was always going to be the place that they said I Do! Dreamland is fairly new for weddings but the ballroom is stunning and you really have full use of the theme park and rides along with an awesome roof top bar and gold passes to fast track guests (and me) onto the rides! This really was a beautiful wedding, they added personal touches to their themed tables, but the quote on their napkins really summed up the day...
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return"
Elliott & Ruth knew exactly the style of photography that they wanted for their wedding. These guys were both so lovely and happy to run with us and pop out to shoot at the best points throughout the day. Mostly we were aiming at golden hour. It was hitting that time of year where the nights were getting darker, quicker so we were working around the food and speeches. The Blazing Donkey Country Hotel has beautiful countryside whichever direction you walk and its always so peaceful, like there is nothing for miles! Their guests were all awesome too, especially Elliott's Best Man and Ushers, a crazy lot, lots of laughs to be had!
