Wow – I’m really so thrilled by this one.
A Kentish Wedding is the must read magazine for people getting married in Kent. Not only do they have all the usual editorials and features, they have a literally indispensable guide to every licensed civil wedding and civil partnership venue in Kent. The magazine also looks pretty nice and best of all it’s free – you can go and grab one of the 10,000 copies they print of each issue at loads of wedding fairs, register offices and civil venues in Kent.
Sounds perfect? Well almost. They have published lots of my pictures in their real wedding features and editorial features in the past. But their cover has always been a little, how shall I put this, conservative. It’s almost always a nicely composed picture of a bride or bride and groom standing demurely in front of a well known Kent landmark. Nice. But not really my style. Well not any more. Looks like they have decided to spice it up a bit. OK a lot.
I’m absolutely thrilled that they chose to use one of my images on the cover. I’m even more thrilled that it’s one of my favourites from last year which I think sums up my “no rules” approach to wedding photography. Bride Tania is getting quite literally thrown across the bonnet of a car called Delilah (check the registration to figure out why, why, why….) by “new” husband Phil in front of a wall liberally tagged by the youth of Whitstable.
And in answer to the question I often get asked about this. No, this isn’t a trash the dress session. It isn’t a picture take out of context. And it’s certainly not “posed by models”. Tania and Phil’s reception was in the Old Brewery at Whitstable. This is within yards of there – they wanted a few quick pictures on the beach .
As an extra bonus, this issue will launch at the National Wedding Show in London. I hear the Kentish Wedding stand will be covered with it. Goodbye conservative covers
