The Archbishop's Palace
The Archbishop's Palace, in Maidstone, Kent, is a beautiful building which dates back to the 14th-century and was once a place to stay for travelling archbishops from Canterbury. The Palace is now home to the local Registry Office and is perfectly located on the bank of the River Medway creating a wonderful location for a wedding.
Unfortunately on the day shown below not only were we limited due to Covid19 restrictions but also the rain! The wonderful couple (Luke & Jessica) took everything in their stride and we will be meeting back up in a few months once Covid19 has been beaten back a little and the weather improves so we can take a series of photos along the river to add to their wedding photos.
My Favourite Photograph
I chose this image for two reasons. Firstly, the beautiful moment it captured just after the first kiss and secondly, the natural light that falls upon the bride and groom. The room was lit by a set of very large windows just behind the registrar. This created a beautiful soft light that really lifted the couple from the rest of the scene by dropping the back of the room into a subtle shadow.
