Mount Ephraim Gardens Wedding

Summer Wedding in Kent

Last summer's Mount Ephraim Gardens Wedding in Kent was one of those great ones. Awesome couple and guests in a beautiful setting. And what a glorious day we had! We also experienced the typical British weather with sunshine, rain and everything in between.

The happy couple of the day were Carl and Cardine. We have met before when we did our engagement shoot in Richmond Park in London. Because of that, I knew it is going to be a good one. Carl and Cardine are just that kind of people who make you feel comfortable from the start and I felt like I've known them for ages! They are also a couple of kids, only disguised as grown-ups. I just have to add that Cardine looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding dress!

They were surrounded by a group of joyful friends and family, who added to the happy and relaxed vibe of the day.

The venue for the day was the glorious Mount Ephraim Gardens in Kent, an Edwardian terraced garden located at Hernhill, near Faversham. This beautiful family-owned estate in the heart of the Kent countryside is just perfect for a wedding celebration.

It is surrounded by acres of land and beautiful, landscaped gardens. There is so much of them I almost got lost while scouting the grounds at the start of the day! With regards to wedding photography, I was so spoiled. In the gardens of the venue you can find impressive terraces, water features and streams with bridges over them. On top of that there are ponds, gorgeous flowers which were taller than me and great architectural features like old tower and gate. All of this on a natural hill, on top of which there is the late-Victorian manor house, with beautiful interiors and sweeping staircase into the main hall. That is where the ceremony took place as well as the evening dancing.

The day was expertly run by our wedding coordinator Gosia, who together with other staff members made sure that the guests were happy and well looked after. The food was delicious and garden games entertaining, with Jenga being the favourite, especially amongst the kids.

Thank you so much Carl and Cardine for trusting in me and Blue Lily Weddings to document your special day. It was a true honour and so much fun!

 Norton Park Wedding Photography

The recent winter barn wedding of Katie and Matt at Norton Park in Winchester was a great celebration of what is important in life.  And that is simply a love of two amazing people and connection they have between themselves, as well as their family and close friends. The bride and groom, as well as all their guests, were such a great company on the day. They made me feel most welcome from the start and filled the day with joy and laughter.

The wedding venue was Norton Park, an imposing hotel with beautiful grounds and gorgeous Hampshire countryside surrounding it. The Manor House next door was a perfect place for the bride and her bridesmaids to get ready. As well as for the drinks reception later on. The ceremony and the wedding breakfast took place in a 17th century Tythe Barn. The barn was recently refurbished. With its underfloor heating, it was perfect for the winter wedding celebration, keeping everyone warm on a chilly March day.
The evening part of the wedding included cake cutting, first dance and some crazy dancefloor moves to the tunes of an awesome band The Tricks. It all took place in the conference room of the hotel, which was just perfect for it. And Katies pink dance wedding trainers just toped it all!

Hampshire Winter Wedding

I loved pretty much everything about this Hampshire winter wedding. The people, the venue, the beautiful handmade decorations in the barn. And also the beautiful flowers by The Blooming Workshop. Maybe with exception of the temperatures this time of year which were slightly on a chilly side. Because of the rain, we couldn't do any shots on the waterlogged grass, even with Katie's special mud sink stoppers!
Fortunately, we didn't have to venture far to find a great location with some nice backdrops for our couple shoot. Although it only took a few minutes Katie and Matt were great models and we got some beautiful shots.
Another great part of the day were the speeches. Especially the one made by Matt's best men who didn't spare the groom embarrassing stories with added photographic evidence. What a great evening it was!

Thank you so much, Katie and Matt, for trusting in me to document your beautiful day. I enjoyed it so much!
