Henni and Alex at The Mulberry Tree Restaurant
Small and more intimate weddings are becoming more and more popular these days. Wedding couples are looking for something a little more authentic and suited to their personalities rather than a big declaration of lavishness with 300 guests, and I for one think that is a great thing. Intimate weddings help me as a documentary photographer get to know the personalities of many of the family and weddings guests, this in turn helps me photograph the true essence of the day.
THE MULBERRY TREE RESTAURANT in the stunning Kent countryside is a perfect venue for a wedding like this. The venue is one of Kent’s best restaurants so I am always really happy to return, not least because of the awesome food Head Chef Lewis serves up!!
Henni and Alex are without doubt two of the nicest people you will ever come across so I was delighted to be asked to photograph their wedding. The day kicked off at Henni’s Grandma and Grandad’s house in Cranbrook surrounded by all her family and her grandparents two adorable dogs. It was a real family affair, even for me as Mrs H joined us for the morning to do Henni’s hair and make-up. You honestly can’t beat a wedding when the bride is surrounded by her family and friends in the morning, so much so I even wrote a blog about it. Check is out HERE once you’ve read this one of course.
So onto the wedding. Karen and her team had manicured The Mulberry Tree to within an inch of its life, and it was all set for the arrival of the stunning Henni. Alex and his boys looked dapper in their blue suits, even his tall usher with the dodgy socks poking out from under his trouser legs. Remember what I said…be authentic!
The wedding ceremony went off perfectly, and Alex managed to hold himself together with perhaps just a little tear to fog up his glasses. After the wedding breakfast it was time for the speeches, which on a nice day are held outside at The Mulberry Tree. This is a great addition to the day as everyone gets a great view as well as some much-needed fresh air to clear the red wine out of their heads. There are some of my favourite photos from the day in this section of the photofilm; the one with Alex holding his head in his hands is a personal favourite. I don’t know why grooms think it s a good idea to ask their brothers to be their best men, they don’t hold back.
I think that’s enough chat from me, all you need to do now is click the play button to relive Henni and Alex’s lovely day. If you like what you see then please GET IN TOUCH and don’t forget to like, share and comment.
