Kent Wedding Photojournalism
It would be fair to say that from the moment I first met Steph and Paul I knew they were a really fun couple who saw their wedding day as an opportunity to have fun, laughs and really enjoy. This was reinforced on their pre-wedding portrait shoot in Greenwich Park a month or so before their wedding day.
So I knew coming into their wedding that my reportage style wedding photography approach was going to be a perfect fit for catching all those fun moments.
And I definitely wasn’t disappointed!
Bridal Preparations in Welling, Kent
My first call on the wedding morning was to Steph’s Dad’s house in Welling, Kent where the stunning bride and her beautiful bridesmaids were getting ready for the day. In the run up to the wedding the weather had been pretty wet and miserable but on my way to Welling the sun was shining brightly and it was promising to be a beautiful day.
The bride and bridesmaids were already having their hair and make-up beautifully done when I arrived – all in their delightful wedding gowns. As I expected there was already lots of fun and laughter as the bubbly started to flow. Steph was definitely a cool and calm bride ahead of her big day.
Mario, the father of the bride, was on hand to provide reassurance and ensure the wedding car had the ribbons and bow properly attached.

Fun Wedding Ceremony at the Bromley Court Hotel in Kent
The Bromley Court Hotel is set in 2 acres of landscaped gardens, just 10 miles south east of central London – so is a perfect setting for a wedding, especially with the sun shining as it was for Steph and Paul.
As you’d expect of a fun couple, all the wedding guests were full of smiles and excited for the happy couple. The entire wedding ceremony was full of laughter and a light hearted approach – in keeping with the overall mood. This was just perfect for my documentary wedding photography approach – there were so many fun, interesting and truly emotional moments to capture.
Standing Applause for the Speeches
The good fun and humour carried on into the speeches. Paul, as groom, was determined not to be upstaged by his best men and got a lot of good natured digs in, before the best men could do their worse.
As is usual with the speeches there was laughter as well as tears and its this variance in emotions that gives me, as a wedding photojournalist, so many moments to capture and document.
Disco Fun Into The Night
The evening reception saw the excitement carry through to the dancefloor. There was the cutting of the cake, Paul and Steph’s first dance and a touching dance between Steph and her Dad, Mario. Being a wedding photojournalist it was all about capturing the decisive moments of the evening and truly reflecting the authentic mood and emotion of Steph and Pauls real wedding story.
With their wedding guests in high spirits that was a lot fun on the dancefloor – again giving me ample opportunities to document all those real, natural and candid moments I specialise in as a wedding photographer.
I can safely say, Steph and Paul’s wedding at the Bromley Court Hotel in Kent was a fun and great wedding to photograph. I’m sure you’ll agree my wedding photography really shows what a wonderful wedding day it was in the wedding photography that follows.
