Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Baptiste! Dave & Meredith tied the knot yesterday at The Hop Farm in Kent.
A short drive took me to the wedding venue, The Hop Farm, set just 15 minutes away from Tunbridge Wells, in Kent. This venue combines a beautiful area for outside ceremonies, the backdrop of classic Oast Roundels, and an assortment of playground rides for fun and interesting wedding shots.
We had a few minutes before the Bride would arrive so I captured some portraits of the Groom, his Best-man, and his Groomsmen. It was then off to the front of the venue to meet the horse and carriage awaiting the Bride for her journey to the ceremony.
The rain held off and the wedding ceremony was held outside to the enjoyment of all. I took various group formal photographs after the ceremony and then the Bride and Groom left in their horse and carriage for a short trip around the venue grounds.
After the wedding breakfast, and speeches, I captured their first dance, and then we took a short walk around the venue grounds for a few last portraits before the sun’s light left us entirely.
I hope you both have an amazing honeymoon and maybe I’ll see you again at a wedding in Saudi sometime in the future – well, one can hope.
All the best, Nick
