The hottest day of the year so far for Elaine and Adrian’s big day in Kent at the wonderful Winters Barns in Canterbury.
I do love this venue and I obviously haven’t been here in awhile as they’re have been some lovely improvements. The bridal preps area has always been in my opinion one of the best to shoot in Kent. It’s spacious and white and just makes my job a lot easier, air conditioned too. The groom’s preparation area has had a lovely transformation as well as an area around the back of the pond; all very well done and in exquisite taste.
The flowers done by Passion Floral Design were outstanding and very photogenic, plenty of examples below.
The wedding ceremony was held outside as the weather was perfect but it can be switched inside at Winters Barns at a moments notice if needs be as there’s plenty of space. There was an informal greeting line which instantly became a traditional one; a great way to see and greet everyone but it ate into the allotted time for photos. Not a problem at all as it was just too sunny and the light was harsh for the romantic couple shots. So I would have postponed those until later and after the meal. A number of group photos later with the lovely crowd and then everyone was called into the wedding breakfast.
The speeches ran very late but there was still plenty of light for the romantic shots around the grounds at Winters barns, even some in a field of crops adjacent.
