It is always a true pleasure to photograph at The Orangery Maidstone, one of the prettiest venues in Kent! The stunning gardens with all of their winding paths and beautiful backdrops make this venue a photographers dream 🙂 One of the additional joys of this wedding is that I had met the bride Leah as a bridesmaid and close friend at two former weddings that I photographed. It was such an honour to be able to enjoy the company of this amazing group of friends yet again on another momentous day in their lives.
Leah had chosen very soft and beautiful arrangements and colours for her wedding day and they felt utterly perfect for this summer wedding. Looking back at the pictures now I just wish I was there again(!) it is almost like a dream looking at these stunning Orangery gardens and this happiest of days.
Leah’s beautiful hair and make up was from Collette and the team at ‘I do bridal hair and gelux nails’
This was the location of their ceremony amidst the breathtaking grounds of The Orangery, loved Leah’s idea of using soft colours and materials on the aisle ends, fitted perfectly with the bright gazebo.
And one very excited and slightly nervous(!) groom…
Leah’s two bridesmaids and little flower girls enjoying the special moments of the ceremony…
And we did it!!
And time to enjoy The Orangery’s beautiful grounds for a little while..
I love the positioning of the bridge, it means the bride and groom always receive an excited welcome whenever they are seen!
Meanwhile the flower girls and paige boys were also making the most of the grounds 🙂
The soft colours of Leah’s bouquet were also threaded through every detail of the Wedding Breakfast. The stunning floral arrangements were created by Petal Creations
And just a few final evening portraits…I have to resist the temptation here to add another 20, I have so so many favourites!!
And we were interrupted by some very busy ladies(!) as we set up for a final portrait
Congratulations once more Leah & Rob!! xxx
