Engagement | Dreamland – Margate | Rosie & Alex
Where do I start? My pal, Rosie, is pretty quirky. She’s wonderfully creative, an ideas person but her own biggest critic. She’s an introvert with inner extrovert desires. She’s fierce yet she’s timid. She’s raising two daughters. She writes (really well) and plays the ukulele. She’s getting married to Alex next week and is anxious about being the centre of attention. Alex owns way too many pairs of trainers but is passionate about keeping healthy and he runs every day. He’s gentle and a hard-worker. He knows about landscaping and does it well. He loves his children and supermarket offers and hates to miss a bargain. He’s marrying Rosie next week and I know his suit will be a good one. Rosie and Alex are tying the knot in an ‘it’s about time’ kind of way, since they already have a house and two daughters together!
I love going to their house because Rosie’s tea-drinking is as prolific as mine and we send our children off to play together upstairs whilst we set the world to rights, fantasise about all our creative ideas and then talk shop – Rosie is a videographer, specialising in weddings and families and we often work together with the same clients. We’re always plotting how to do things bigger and better. She’s that friend who I can bounce ideas off, the one who gets as carried away as I do, the one I’ve got a ‘only’you’ humour with!
I’m thrilled to be shooting their wedding next week, it promises to be a funky affair, much like their engagement shoot at Dreamland in Margate! They brought their girls, Olive and Kitty, along with them too and between us all, we managed to occupy the children, have lunch, play some arcade games and go on some rides (them not me)! So, here is the result, some of my favourite images all year! I also wanted to give Rosie a little taster of seeing herself in a film, much like those she creates for her own clients, so I’m proud to have created this little memory too.
Total fun! I even made a tulle skirt to add something extra dreamy…
Hi! I’m Kate, a Wedding and portrait photographer from Kent!
“I loved this retro-chic engagement shoot at Dreamland, Margate! I love it when couples have some creative ideas for places they’d love to have their photos taken! If you’re looking for a fun, friendly (and a bit whimsical) wedding photographer in Kent, then I hope you might like to work with me.”
