Salomons Tunbridge Wells Kent - Emma and Patrick: Kent Wedding Photographers

 

 

 

Good Morning Folks,

Well it certainly was a treat to be back doing wedding photography at Salomons in Tunbridge Wells Kent. I had a great day photographing the wedding of Emma and Patrick; the wedding day started at Emma's Parent's house in Tunbridge Wells an area I know and love from my childhood days. The house was calm and full of anticipation of the wonderful day that stretched ahead. I then headed off to St Mary's Church Speldhurst Kent where the wedding was due to take place. We had great fun photographing the boys and the wedding service was beautiful. Patrick's Aunt gave a lovely sermon that was so personal.

In between bouts of rain we managed to get outside then it was off to Salomons Tunbridge Wells. The evening was also very special as Emma's father and brother are part of a band called Rumour and they made a special appearance to play at the wedding. They are fantastic so if you ever get the chance to see them it is well worth the effort.

So today I am posting four images, the first is of Emma and Patrick on the bridge; there was lots of dashing to a fro with brollies for these shots! I do love a nice set of stairs and Salomons in no exception, so here is Emma wistfully gliding down them. The third shot makes me laugh, as luck would have it the rain held off until the last shot and then it came down in torrents, to be honest it made for a wonderful photograph so for once the rain didn't ruin things! Last but not least the wonderful Rumour doing their 'thang'!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the fireworks; my cats are not sure what to make of them so I think they will be glad when it is all over.

Salomons Wedding Venue Tunbridge Wells Kent Wedding Photography1Good Morning Folks,

I recently photographed the wedding of Karen and Chris at the gorgeous Salomons in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. This venue has popped up on a number of occasions here recently and I never tire of going there.

The day was absolutely scorching and hotter than many of our summer days, so it was wonderful to be able to photograph the wedding ceremony outside. Terry the ring bearer was waiting in the wings for his big entrance during the service and he was winched down to some James Bond music to deliver the said rings; love it!

The day was full of fun and emotion; Karen delivered two very moving speeches to both her Husband and her Parents; yup I was blubbing!

Today I am posting three images; the first is of Chris looking most dapper and 'cool', I am using cool to describe his status rather than temperature, because he did not feel cool all day! The second is of a tender moment at dusk and finally some drama with Karen on the steps; you can't beat a bit of dramatic photography at a wedding!

Have a great weekend folks, for me I have a wedding and a busy day of portraits. How nice to see the colours turning but I cannot believe that we are almost in November already and this year seems to have whizzed by.

Good Afternoon Folks,

I recently photographed the wedding of Hannah and Garry and the very beautiful<a href="http://www.salomonscentre.org.uk/" target="_blank"> David Salomons House in Tunbridge Wells, Kent</a>. It was a changeable day weatherwise, which was a shame because Hannah and Garry had originally planned to have their ceremony outside but the weather had different ideas; it did not hamper the fun though. The ceremony was just as beautiful inside because all their family and friends were there to celebrate such a special day.

We did manage to have the group shots outside because Salomons has a splendid covered terrace that kept the guests dry and they could nip in and out as required through a side door. It was then off to the newly built bridge with golf buggy and brollies to capture some intimate shots; even with the rain there was no way that Hannah and Garry were going to miss out on this, so the intrepid gang had fun there too!

For me personally it was a most surreal day; firstly I had a chat with one of my old school teachers who is Hannah's Aunt, then I discovered not one but two students who were in the same year as me; gosh really what a small world we live in. It is so funny because I just could not call my teacher by her first name...old habits really do die hard.

Today I am posting four images, the first is on the new bridge and I love the leaf formation that frames Hannah and Garry having a moment together. The second was taken in the science theatre in front of the world renowned organ and here Hannah is sporting my newest acquisition, a lace parasol. The third image is Garry looking fantastic and he remembered everything we discussed at the pre-wedding shoot too; and last but not least joy during the first dance.

Well what a truly amazing site to see at the opening of the Paralympics last night; I was gutted as I fell asleep before seeing the lighting of the Paralympic cauldron :(. On a more exciting note, my mentor's Godson is an athlete in the field events that are due to take place on Tuesday evening, so I will be glued to the TV and willing him on to gold; how utterly fabulous!

Enjoy the weekend folks.

Claire
