A friends wedding in Kent

I had the pleasure of being an usher at my friends wedding on Monday. 

Nicole and Dave got married in their local church and went back to The Gardens in Yalding - http://www.thegardensyalding.co.uk/

They asked for lots of advice from me about all things weddings. They also asked if I could arrange the photography. Emma kindly said she’d photograph their wedding for them.  

Dave and I have been friends since school. He was an usher at my own wedding last year. It was such a pleasure to be part of their day. I personally took some photographs of Dave and us boys getting ready in the morning whilst Emma was with the girls at the house.

Then it was time for the church ceremony. We made sure we got Dave to church on time, relaxed and looking smart! The ceremony was beautiful …

We had a few photographs taken here, finishing up with a confetti photo and then back on to The Gardens at Yalding.

The grounds at The Gardens were just spectacular! Acres upon acres of landscaped gardens, a photographers dream!

It was lovely to be able to enjoy a wedding as a guest and not to be photographing it. I hope Emma didn’t find it too stressful photographing a wedding where her boss is watching her all day! 

I’d like to personally thank David and Nicole for allowing me to be part of their day and I hope you love the photographs.  

Finally .... a selfie from the dance floor!
