Jo & Sam Birling Woods Kent Wedding Photography-102.jpg

Jo & Sam

The Manor Gardens | West Malling

Jo and Sam held their rustic themed wedding at the beautiful Manor Gardens wedding venue in Kent. I started my photography service by shooting Jo & the bridal party at their family home just outside of Maidstone before heading onto Trottiscliffe Church which is a really beautiful quintessential English countryside church which has rolling hills as its backdrop. Sam was waiting with his bestman (and brother) at the alter when I arrived and Jo arrived with her father shortly after. The ceremony was full of laughter and songs and as Jo & Sam walked back down the aisle after becoming husband and wife I managed to grab 4x candid shots of them dancing in the hallway whilst nobody was watching. Everyone left the church to a sea of confetti and headed over to the Manor Gardens which is a woodland venue decorated with lots of small lights, a marquee and a badminton court. After Jo had hit a few winning smashes with the badminton racquet we all headed inside to the marquee for the wedding breakfast & speeches. Later into the evening and as the sun was setting between the tree’s Jo, Sam and I took a walk into the woods and captured some lovely wedding portrait shots before heading back inside the first dance.

James is amazing. Our photographs are incredible and we will cherish them forever. He was brilliant before, on and after the event - I cannot recommend him enough! Jo & Sam
