Eastwell Manor Wedding Photography

As a Kent Wedding Photographer there are few venues more splendid than Eastwell Manor, a stunning hotel and spa set in the heart of the Kent countryside. This is where Charlotte & Sam had their beautiful wedding in August 2023. My day began at the bridal prep, a quiet affair with just Charlotte, her mum and the makeup artist. The wedding took place in the Maids Garden, a beautiful secluded walled garden with views of the North Downs. Walking up the aisle the bride crosses a short bridge before arriving at the Italian gazebo for the wedding ceremony. The sun was out for the ceremony and continued to be with us all the way through the evening.

Eastwell Manor has a long history and has had some very famous residents. The name "Eastwell" comes from the East Well, a natural spring where Saxon shepherds used to gather water for their flocks back in the time of King Edward the Confessor (1042 to 1066). The original manor was built for Sir Thomas Moyle, a commissioner for Henry VIII, between 1540 and 1550. One of the bricklayers that worked on the site was Richard Plantagenet, the illegitimate son of King Richard III. Much of the current manor was built between 1793 and 1799. Over its 450 year history, some notable residents and guests have visited the manor including, Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and Prince Alfred the Duke of Edinburgh. Today Eastwell Manor is a hotel and a fabulous place for a Kent wedding.

My Favourite Photograph

I have chosen this as my favourite photo from the wedding because every time I look at it I can feel the warmth and love Charlotte and her Grandad have for each other. There is another photograph a little further down the page that follows on from this moment. It is of the gentleman smiling up at the bride, it was a tough call between those two for my favourite photo. These small intimate and emotional moments that often flash by in a second are what I really enjoy photographing at a wedding. To me it is photos like this that will become the most important pictures to the couple in the years to come.

Another contender for my favourite wedding photograph is this shot of the bride running. It was late on and starting to get dark when the Bride came up to me and asked if she could have a photo of her running in her wedding dress. Not a photo I had taken before but I was more than happy to oblige. Being quite dark (not that you can tell in the photo) I was unsure how this would turn out but I am very happy with the result.
