Robin and Katie Smith
Venue - Bay Point Centre
Location - Sandwich, Kent
Date - 13th October 2012
I was booked to photograph the wedding reception of Robin and Katie on 13th October 2012 after they had just returned from getting married abroad in sunny Rhodes, Greece and wanted a big wedding party together with all their family in the UK. The venue for this occasion was the newly built Bay Point Centre in Sandwich, Kent.
I arrived at the venue slightly early. There were already plenty of guests in the beach themed and beautifully decorated function room where the reception was taking place but generally people kept arriving all evening, totalling to a large and very fun party. There was an open buffet of sandwiches and cake, which the 40+ children loved! There were family members who had travelled as far as Ireland and Scotland so my main job was getting as many photos as possible of all the family together celebrating Robin and Katie's wedding. The room as I mentioned was decorated in a beach theme to match their beach wedding in Rhodes. There was a stunning Brighton themed wedding cake and the tables were decorated with starfish, seashells and small glasses of sand.
As it moved into the evening party, another buffet was opened and the evening guests started to arrive. There was a DJ playing music to keep everyone entertained and also a live band played during the evening food. There was a great selection of people at the party, everyone was enjoying the atmosphere, catching up with family they hadn't seen for ages and the children spent the night dancing and playing football in the leisure centres hall next door.
It definitely seemed as though Robin and Katie had a wonderful evening and enjoyed celebrating their reception with all their loved ones and especially their two children and I wish them both all the best in their newly married live together.
