Victoria and Allan’s Wedding at Chilston Park Hotel, Sandway, Lenham, Kent

Victoria and Allan’s wedding took place back in February, held at Chilston Park Hotel, Lenham in Kent and was my first wedding of the 2012 calendar.

The weather was kind to us in the respect that it was dry, and so we were able to get outside to capture some portraits within the grounds.

I had been to a wedding at Chilston once before in the past, although it was on the other side of the lens in the form as a guest.  This was my first commission to document a wedding at the venue.

It was a very nice venue, and there were many locations within that I had wanted to use for some photos, however we were up against time and so were heavily restricted to what we could achieve within a very short time frame.

We still managed to capture some lovely shots.

Victoria was incredibly bubbly – a true pleasure to photograph, there were so many fab ‘beaming’ smiles throughout the whole day, it just made my job as their photographer all the easier when emotions are so vividly on display.

I’ve added some of the images from the day below.
