Charlie & Beth’s Wedding at Littlebourne Barn
Charlie & Beth had their wedding ceremony at St John the Evangelist Church in Ickham then had their reception at Littlebourne Barn near Canterbury in Kent. This wedding was probably the best start to a wedding day that I’ve known. I pulled up in my car outside Beth’s family home and her Dad was giving her a piggy back to go and see the wedding car that had just arrived! I love that this was the first frame that I captured! This wedding was characterised by two main things. The first was the family involvement in making this wedding so special and unique. Beth’s Sister Caitlin designed and made Beth’s wedding dress in her final year of studies (no mean feat!) and it was such a beautiful moment as Caitlin helped Beth into the dress. Family were involved with the music during the ceremony as Beth’s Mum played the harp and Sisters sung and played violin. Beth’s Dad made the bar and ales for the reception (and the list goes on!) The second thing I loved about this wedding was a real sense of joy. I haven’t photographed many Brides more smiley and fun than Beth and her and Charlie were obviously so excited to be Husband and Wife. The fun continued in the afternoon with garden games and into the evening with a Ceilidh. Here are some of my favourite images from this brilliant wedding. I photographed this day with James and a few of his pictures are included below.
Beth messaged me to say “Charlie and I have had a wonderful time today looking through our photos for the first time! The photos are simply stunning; we are so pleased! Thank you to you and James for capturing our day so perfectly. I have treasured memories of a day so full of pure joy and laughter and you captured so many of those happy, smiley moments! It’s wonderful! It was an absolute joy to have you both there. Love, Beth and Charlie x”
