Becky & Tom’s beautiful wedding at the stunning Cooling Castle Barn couldn’t have been more perfect. When I first met Becky & Tom over a year ago along with their baby daughter Charlotte they made a lasting impression on me. They were all so relaxed and happy together that I knew that their wedding day would feel just the same. With great friends, a loving family and lots of fun, their beautiful summery wedding day was exactly as they hoped it would be…

 

Nearly ready!  Some lovely pictures with Charlotte… Becky’s hair was done by Gemma Austin of Gem Celebrations  and her make up artist was the very talented Nicola Connell of Kent Bridal Make Up

The ceremony room was so beautiful, dressed by Confetti Connections,  with the candlelight, fairy lights and soft ivories set against the bold pockets of vibrant purple flowers.. the effect was just amazing!  All of the floral arrangements were created by Lucy at Flowers by Lulu

The only tough thing about photographing a wedding at Cooling Castle is which of the dozens of beautiful locations to choose for portraits!

Everything blended together so beautifully, Becky’s stationary had been created by a family friend adding even more personal touches.

After the wedding breakfast we took the opportunity to get some lovely shots as the sun went down.  As well as being a stunning venue, Cooling Castle Barn is also surrounded by the most beautiful countryside…
