A very welcome return to what must surely be Kent's busiest wedding venue - time for Hannah Mooney and Mark Bunny's Cooling Castle Barn wedding! You know how frantic it can get when a bride's getting ready? People rushing everywhere, panic, mayhem and bustle? Not that... When I arrived, Hannah was calm,Read More
So it's October. And you know what that means. The rain's slightly cooler than it is in August! Joking apart a couple of people said to me what a shame the small amount of drizzle we had was. Well, today it's raining pretty hard and Friday was torrential. I think EmmaRead More
Some people ask me "what's it like at one of your photoshoots?". And I start using words like "cool" and "awesome" and waving my arms. And then I thought...why don't I just show you? So here's a real video of a real shoot with a real bride doing a real trashRead More
Random naked people, the A team van and a dress you could set up camp in. Oh and rain. Quite a lot of rain actually. Yep, I had lots of fun yesterday at Bridgewood Manor and Cooling Castle Barn with Andrea and James. First of all we had flowers. Or ratherRead More

OK let’s see. Gorgeous bride? Check. Fabulous venue? Check (c’mon this is just part of the bridal suite). Willing assistant to spend ages on her knees with a crochet hook buttoning the bride into her stunning wedding dress? Check.
Must be a wedding then. MyWeddingStory style. Despite it being a blustery November day. And err, raining. A lot.
Felicity and Dave are back after drying out on honeymoon! The rain at their wedding didn’t dampen their spirits and they had a fantastic time.
You can now view all the pictures from their wedding at Walmer Castle and wedding reception at the Blazing Donkey online.
There’s a short slideshow to give you a taste of the wedding below.
People ask me “what do you do if it rains?”. My answer is always the same “the cameras can take more water than a wedding dress – we’ll go on shooting”. Some people laugh. And some people don’t believe me. Then there are people like Flis and Dave who call my bluff. And that’s when we get the coolest pictures.
Of course, it was just my luck to meet a very cool couple who were absolutely up for anything the elements could throw at them on one of the wettest days ever. Those are sandbags which were in front of pretty much all the houses in the road. There were 4 inches of rain forecast and the environment agency had issued a severe weather warning. A perfect day for a wedding!
Remember Emily and Astrit? They were married just over a week ago. Beautiful bride, beautiful setting, handsome groom. Horrendous weather. Really, I always say that I’m lucky with weather. Last week I was lucky in that the marquee didn’t blow away :).
Anyway, they fly out to Kosova tomorrow to get married all over again next week. So I hustled the pictures through processing.
There’s a highlight show below and if you want to see more then you can jump on over to the client site where you can see every picture from their wedding at Farringtons School Read More
Most pictures of wedding start with the bride. Instead, here’s Astrit. Kosovan, groom for the day, evangelical preacher and all round cool guy. He also has a bit of a way with words.
We got a little wet at his wedding to Emily. OK, we got very wet. The heavens opened and what could have been one of the most beautiful days ever turned into one of the wettest. It was so bad that a couple of the guests were even heard to say that it was a pity and that it might spoil the day a little. Then Astrit stood up for his speech and explained. He’s been in England for 5 days and everything was wonderful. Now the whole country was crying because he had the best girl. And all of a sudden the rain didn’t matter at all.
