Rebecca and Ty’s wedding at Bilsington Priory near Ashford in Kent was full of sunshine, children and animals. Â 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.
I joined Rebecca, her mother and her daughters getting ready.
We went across to the Augustine Priory where Ty was waiting – a tad emotional – with the guests and lovely Kent registrars.
Rebecca’s mum had set up a surprise dove release for Rebecca, Ty and their daughter Coco.
Rebecca, Ty and myself took a few minutes for some portraits out of the bright sunlight, including a garden bench where Ty had proposed.
While they rejoined their guests for drinks, children were making the most of the gardens, including a tree-slung horse swing.
Coco took a huge liking to Orville and spent much of the reception cuddling him, although when he decided to make a bid for freedom, there was child carnage left in his wake.
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.
Here is a single from today’s wedding of Tanya and Zhewei. Â They were married at Islington Town Hall, before us all hopping in a limo to go to the Oyster Bar in St Pancras Station; and just about now, they will be on the Eurostar, which runs from St Pancras, to honeymoon in Paris. Â Their full blog post will be posted in the coming week.
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.
Lynsey and Craig’s photographs from their wedding are now edited.Â Here is a slideshow from their day – from the girls and guys getting ready, to their ceremony in Lynsey’s home of Haxby and their reception at the Royal York Hotel.
I last saw Peter and Amanda several years ago when their son Henry was a baby. Now they have baby Sasha and Henry is very much a young man, seriously interested in sticks, transformers and investigating locked gates. We got together this morning before his school sports day in Dulwich, taking some relaxed family group photos. Children are usually a delight to photograph anyway, but when they are playing and cuddling with the rest of their family, it’s really special. I often wonder how treasured those photographs will be in the future for the children themselves.
