Hannah & Michael booked me back in March 2020, when the country was first locked down, and I don’t think anyone expected restrictions to still be in place over a year later. Like many other couples I spoke to at the time, they used the time at home positively, which for them meant planning their wedding & having something amazing to look forward to. Fast forward to May 2021, and current restrictions meant their wedding plans had to be slimmed down, but I’m so pleased they were actually able to get married. After all, isn’t that the most important thing?
They’d chosen All Saints Church in Brenchley for the ceremony, which is a beautiful little church in a beautiful little village. Hannah had made all her own floral decorations including the bouquets, buttonholes, and church decor, using supplies from Shropshire Petals. She has an amazing talent for it, with all looking extremely professional.
It was a lovely ceremony, conducted by Rev. Campbell Padget, and although there was a power cut during, and thus no backing music, Hannah’s bridesmaid sang incredibly. I think the lack of music highlighted how amazing her voice is and I’m sure everyone was impressed at her ability to sing without it.
After the service and a few group photos at the front of the church, I along with Paul from Cut Above Productions, took Hannah & Michael for a few portraits. I’d discussed location ideas before the day with Hannah and Michael, so we started with the church grounds and then headed to a nearby orchard, before finishing with a few on the high-street. It was a real pleasure to photograph their wedding for them, and I very much look forward to seeing them again at the party next year.
