Annie & Alex | A fun village hall wedding in Kent

Wow, what a wedding!

I'd been looking forward to photographing Annie and Alex's wedding in Kent from the first moment they got in touch last year. Annie has this amazing infectious energy that came through in every single message, Skype call and their lovely engagement shoot last autumn. I mean, just look at that grin! I don't think she stopped smiling all day :) these two are seriously in love and it's so wonderful to witness ♡ I feel incredibly honoured to be the one they chose to document their wedding. 

The day started with the threat of constant rain but it was almost like the two of them didn't even notice because they were too excited to see each other and get married. Annie and her lovely bridesmaids got ready in Annie's childhood home (I really love it when couples get ready at home!) which gave me the opportunity to stalk Sophie the cat :) she's super cute! 

The ceremony took place at St. Michael's Church in Smarden, followed by a fun party at Egerton Millennium Hall. These guys love their family and friends very much and I felt like the whole day was just a bubble of happiness and love. Every single person there was so full of joy at seeing two people they care about so much get married.

Annie and Alex are pretty obsessed with travel and adventure and had decorated their reception to show all the incredible places they've been. They have an amazing assortment of tickets, snapshots and memorabilia and they'd created a museum of their lives so far which was a really fun addition to their decoration! 

Entertainment was provided by the band Banish Misfortunes and the gorgeous bright flowers provided by Hannah from Patina & Petal

Thank you Annie and Alex for choosing me as your wedding photographer :)

 I'll stop waffling on now and let the photographs from the rest of the day do the rest of the talking :)
