Bilsington Priory | Kent wedding | Rebecca + Ty

Rebecca and Ty’s wedding at Bilsington Priory near Ashford in Kent was full of sunshine, children and animals.  The day started with capturing some of the local characters including a very patient one-eyed cat (you’ll see why soon) which I think is called Orville.

Rebecca’s mum had set up a surprise dove release for Rebecca, Ty and their daughter Coco.

Just as the sun was fading, the speeches and Rebecca and Ty’s first dance took place and I left them and their guests to celebrate.

Chelsea Register Office | Vikki + Toby | A single

This morning’s wedding at Chelsea Register Office was with Vikki, Toby and two witnesses before a portrait walkabout and going onto The Wolseley, where they were having an early lunch. Toby and Vikki’s mothers are in Spain and Cyprus and have been told a wedding day photograph is going online for them to see – so here it is.  More will be going up in about a week, so check back to see more when they have been edited.

Bilsington Priory wedding | Rebecca & Tyrone | A single

Just finished downloading and backing up Rebecca and Tyrone’s wonderful wedding at Bilsington Priory near Ashford in Kent today (I know, technically yesterday). Tyrone was the sweetest, most emotional groom you could imagine and a photo of him waiting for Rebecca at their ceremony was almost the single, but Rebecca coming down the stairs was just too beautiful. A full blog post will follow when I’ve edited the day’s photographs.
