Sarah & Paul | A chilled out church wedding in Kent

I absolutely adore second shooting for my lovely friend Clare and I was so delighted when she asked Russell and I to come along and second for her (and shoot video!) at Sarah and Paul’s fun church and marquee wedding in Kent last summer.

Sarah and Paul chose to get married in St Margaret's Church in High Halstow and held their wedding party in a marquee not too far away. These guys planned a pretty fun day and they have an absolutely great bunch of mates! There were endless pranks, games and laughter all day.

This church wedding is a really good example of when photographers are asked not to stand at the front of the church on a wedding day. This can be quite a surprise to a couple on their wedding day so it is always worth checking beforehand. Clare and I found some pretty good angles to shoot from so we were happy but it’s always worth thinking about if you’re planning a church wedding.

Check out Russell’s video below and scroll further down to see the photographs :)
