One of my favourite weddings from last year that I’ve been dying to get on the blog and have finally got around to it is Colin and Leila’s High Rocks Wedding! Leila and Colin contacted me in late 2013 having seen my site online and asked me to be their wedding photographer for August the following year, as I was exactly the sort of style they were looking for. They booked me for 8 hours to cover their whole day from Leila getting ready at the Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells and then on to the High Rocks Hotel for the wedding ceremony and reception.
I met Leila and Colin at The High Rocks Hotel a few days prior to the wedding so they could talk me though the day and any shots that they would like to have done particularly. It was great to finally meet them having talked to Leila on the phone previously and great to hear about all of the plans they had for the day, it was a wedding I was really looking forward to.
The day itself was absolute joy to shoot, such a lovely couple who looked so relaxed and at ease which made for some great photos. The wedding had everything – a bride and groom selfie straight after the wedding vows, Colin’s day watching via Skype as he was unfortunately too ill to make the trip to the UK so lots of hellos to him throughout the day, a dancing bride when entering the reception, photo booth, candy floss, more fish and chips that I’ve ever seen in my life and at the end a fantastic dance off!
I’ve really struggled to select only a few of my favourite images as there were just so many, but here’s a selection…
