Port Lympne Wedding Photography
I got to do wedding photography at Port Lympne for Ben and Sangita and it was brilliant! I’ve been to Port Lympne before with the family and often wondered what it would be like to photograph a wedding there and this day passed all expectations. I spent time in the morning with Sangita and her Bridesmaids getting ready upstairs in the Port Lympne Hotel and once the Groomsmen arrived I flitted between upstairs and downstairs as everyone started to arrive. The ceremony took place outside on the terrace area. The look of the terrace and the strength of the sun made it look like we were in Italy or Spain, not Kent! My favourite part of the day was definitely in the evening when all the wedding guests went out on safari! I had a seat in front of Ben and Sangita and as the safari truck drove around and as we saw giraffes, zebras and monkeys I laughed to myself that this was work as it didn’t seem like it at all- pure enjoyment! There were some sweet moments where Ben and Sangita leant in towards each other and the setting sun crept into the truck with it’s golden light- beautiful! I didn’t think the day could get much better but after scaling the tall flight of steps next to the hotel the view from the top of the hill over the zoo and out towards the sea was breathtaking. I loved this day and Ben & Sangita were so warm and welcoming to me. Here are my favourite images!
Ben emailed me after receiving the images saying “The slideshow brought a tear to both of our eyes as it was as if we were reliving the happiest day of our lives all over again. You managed to capture moments that we thought were only ever going to be confined to our memories and for that we are eternally grateful. Thank you for making the day so much fun for us, we had so many people come up to us to say how lucky we were that one of our close friends could do the photography and no one could believe it when we told them that we had only met you a couple of times before. Your service went over and above what we ever expected and the photos are absolutely perfect, we really cannot thank you enough. Ben & Sangita”
