JoJo’s in Whitstable Wedding Photography
Josh & Georgia’s Wedding at JoJo’s in Whitstable was one of the happiest and most fun weddings I’ve had the privilege of doing the photography for! I met them at a wedding that I photographed in 2016 and I knew I wanted to photograph this wedding when Josh & Georgia came to visit me in January. They were so easy to talk to and get along with and they even ended up staying and playing with my kids Caleb and Rose after we’d met. On the day the preparations and the ceremony took place at Mount Ephraim Gardens near Canterbury. There were some brilliant moments like when Georgia came out of the bathroom in her wedding dress and the flower girls (Josh’s Nieces) uncovered their eyes to see her. Then there was the moment between Georgia and her Dad. They were both so overcome with emotion that they ended up holding their heads against each other and crying happy tears and this image is one of my favourite Dad Daughter moments I’ve seen. Georgia’s Dad had given Georgia’s childhood fluffy toy to the Registrar to bring out during the ceremony. She did it in a great dead pan way and Georgia didn’t have a clue that her little friend was making an appearance and all the guests found it hilarious! The best bit of the day was when Josh & Georgia left to go to JoJo’s in Whitstable. They pulled off in an MG mini with Josh driving and Georgia the happiest passenger ever! I followed them in my car and Georgia kept on punching the air, waiving her hands and they got so many beeps and waves from other cars and passers by! This was the happiest car journey I’ve ever seen! Amazing! To the beach- Josh picked up Georgia on the pebbles and then lost his footing and they both fell to the ground laughing! I think we spent most of the time wandering around the beach laughing. It felt like I was photographing my close friend’s wedding. I was so happy for them. Onto JoJo’s restaurant. The food was incredible with five courses of seafood and meat cooked to perfection. I was a very happy guest at the table with family over from Australia. The dancing in the evening was brilliant too. Their friend DJ’ed and I appreciated the Justin Bieber/ Craig David mash up and also enjoyed the human worm! I can’t really express how happy I was to be part of this wedding! I’ll always remember it and I can’t wait to see Josh and Georgia again soon!
Georgia left me this amazing review “If you are reading this and have just got engaged – congratulations!! Now stop looking for your photographer because I promise it’s Olly. We first saw Olly taking photos at a friends wedding and were immediately drawn to his kindness and happiness – let alone the amazing photographs to follow. When Josh and I got engaged there really wasn’t anyone else. From the first moment we had tea with Olly to discuss our plans we knew we had made the right choice. As I sit here now having just looked through our photographs from the most incredible day I am even more sure. Throughout the entire process Olly was kind, considerate and fantastic. The photographs we have capture moments throughout the day that we will cherish forever. A wedding day is the most special day of your lives together and having Olly as a part of it was the best decision we made and I honestly can not recommend him highly enough. A truly kind man who creates awesome photos too!! Olly, thank you so very much. You captured the most important day of our lives so beautifully, we are eternally grateful. G&J x”
