Angela & Jon were married earlier this summer in one of Kent’s most unique wedding venues; Boughton Monchelsea Place. In fact this isn’t really a venue but a beautiful home which is generously shared for special occasions and often features in fashion shoots and films.  Weddings are only scheduled to run for another year at this stunning home so if this venue appeals to you I would get in touch quickly!

Another aspect of Angela & Jon’s day which I really loved was the abundance of floral designs and the blending of pretty lilacs and purples for the bridal party. Their creative flair and thoughtful touches were also on display at Oakwood House; the location for the evening party which got off to a spectacular start with a Swing band. Angela & Jon are truly the warmest, most appreciative and kind people you could hope to meet and their day was absolutely glorious… I’m so grateful to them for letting me share their lovely pictures here. Thank you Angela & Jon!!

Well, there are a lot of WOW! flowers in this post, so I may as well start by introducing the incredible florist behind the creations; Gayle from Bloomingayles

Several rooms at Boughton Monchelsea Place are set aside for preparations, such a pretty place to hang your wedding dress!  Loved Angela’s Christian Louboutin shoes as well :  )

Angela’s two bridesmaids were fantastic! From ensuring the dress was just perfect to some final lip gloss touches! Angela’s beautiful hair design was by Collette Preston Reeves ‘I do..’ with perfect make up by Gemma Pass

Jon was a very busy man when I found him(!) making sure everything was ‘just so’ for Angela’s entrance to the ceremony.  Loved this fabulous blend of colours..

I always try to capture some bride and groom evening portraits, such a perfect way to end the day and these ‘LOVE’ signs from Apollo Funk were just great!
