The Old Kent Barn wedding photographer for Cara and Adam

Cara and Adam’s wonderful wedding was at The Old Kent Barn near Folkestone. Some wonderful details and plenty of thought went into every little aspect of their big day.

I arrived early at 11am for an 11.30 start for the preparations; I like to wander and get the wedding venue detail shots and wide photos of the barn itself. A wonderful venue to shoot and as I haven’t been here in awhile it was lovely to see the improvements that have happened. The outdoor area for the guests used to be covered by a white open sided marquee, which was fine but if the wind picked up it did move around a bit. The new permanent structure is perfect for keeping your guests dry and cuts down on the cross-wind brilliantly. 

The preparations were busy as Cara had five bridesmaids but some great tunes from the 90’s made for a buzzing atmosphere. The make-up artists did a wonderful job and as there were two of them the ladies were ready in record time. 

Adam arrived in some style in his yellow-green … coloured BMW M4 which did sound rather nice. The groom’s party all had matching and rather snazzy suits with Adam in a dark blue suit.

Well let me talk about the flowers:  They were everywhere and in lovely large bunches too. I saw the ladies from Chic Wedding Flowers Making Cara and the bridesmaids bouquets at the venue, a very fresh bouquet indeed. 

The weather threatened a little for the ceremony but held off and only a few drops fell. A lovely overcast sky for my group and family photos; guests may love a bright day but for me that just leads to squinting and harsh light. After a few groups we went for a stroll around the extensive gardens at The Old Kent Barn for Cara and Adam’s romantic wedding photography. Paragraph
