Wedding | Read’s Restaurant – Faversham | Sarah & Phil
Sarah & Phil
Kent Wedding Photography at Read’s Restaurant, Faversham
“Kate was suggested to me by another photographer and I will be forever grateful to him! When recommending Kate he said, “above all, she’s a really nice person.” To be honest, my priority was to get a really good photographer and I thought little more about his comment until Kate and I met up. But how right he was!
The proof of Kate’s wonderful talent is in the results which Phil and I are thrilled to bits with. They are precisely the type of informal, loving, happy photographs we’d hoped for.
But they don’t tell the whole story. Kate is accommodating, thoughtful, efficient and went through what we wanted in advance and in person. She really listened and took onboard everything on our wish list, and more, based on her artistry and professional expertise.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I can’t wait for summer to come as we want to arrange another family shoot with Kate.”
I felt I hit it off with Sarah when we first met at our pre-wedding meeting. I was super impressed that she’d actually planned the wedding in such little time and all by herself – and not because Phil had left it to her but because it was a surprise! Well, almost… legally, both partners have to give notice at the registry office, so Phil knew the date but nothing else! Also, lucky for him, the wedding was scheduled for his birthday (but I won’t reveal which one)!
I photographed the first of their two celebrations, the actual wedding at Read’s Restaurant, a manor house in Faversham, attended by their closest family and friends. The venue was perfect for their 20 or so guests (you could definitely accommodate more) with accommodation and three or four separate rooms for the ceremony, dining and drinking!
I loved this small, intimate wedding because even though I was only with them for part-day coverage, the small number of guests meant that I knew who everyone was and was able to more easily capture the various relationships between them. In some ways, there was a bit of a family portrait session going on here too! Families and friends are so important to a wedding, in a number of different ways, and I know that these kind of images will be enjoyed by the family for years yet to come.
I am photographing more and more weddings for couples whom already have children and it’s lovely to add another layer of meaning to the wedding and the photos.
I had a great time with Sarah and Phil on their big day and am hopeful that we’ll stay in touch!
If you’re planning your wedding at Read’s Restaurant, contact me! I’d love to return to capture your day.
