The Great Barn in Rolvenden is where Dan & Kate had their wedding this Summer. I met up with Dan and Kate in Canterbury a few months back and it was so clear from the first few seconds that these two would be very easy to get along with. What I also loved about them was how relaxed and at ease they were around each other on the wedding day. You just look at a couple sometimes and think “those two were meant to be together”. This was totally the case with Dan & Kate. They recommend me to their friends Chris & Emm who ended up getting married a couple of months beforehand in July so it was so great to have friendly faces at both weddings. Kate got ready with Emm and her Parents at the family home in Iden Green (with their signature poached eggs and avocado on toast!) then it was a short drive to St Georges Church in Benenden for the ceremony. Kate’s Brother lent them his TR6 for the day so Dan drove the two of them off after the ceremony which looked so cool! At the Great Barn Kate and her family had put so much effort into the decor. All the bunting and signs had been made from scratch! The band in the evening had a Keytar (always a good sign!) and as soon as “Can’t stop the feeling” by Justin Timberlake came on all the kids flocked to the dance floor (as it’s every kid’s favourite song from the movie Trolls!) Dan & Kate were a treat to meet and I’m sure they’ll have a lovely marriage together! Here are a few of my favourite frames.
Kate left me this review “We had a great feeling about Olly from the moment we came across his work online. We love his style of photography and by the time we’d exchanged a few emails we were in no doubt that we wanted him to photograph our wedding. Aside from his obvious talents as a photographer, what really sets Olly apart is his incredible warmth, authenticity and of course his boundless enthusiasm! When we met up with him beforehand to discuss the wedding, it was like hanging out with an old friend. This meant that on the day we were completely comfortable and at ease around him, which helped us to get some really natural and beautiful photos. Although he was relaxed and chatted with everyone, he was also constantly alert and never missed an opportunity to capture a great shot. We are so happy we found Olly – I can’t recommend him highly enough!”
