Jennie & Kieran - Leeds Castle

I meant to blog this one some time ago, but it was in the middle of the crazy season and blog posts fell behind. Better late than never!

When I met Jennie & Kieran last year and they told me they were getting married at Leeds Castle I was seriously excited. It’s a pretty astonishing venue and its tagline ‘the loveliest castle in the world’ is big on truth and low on hype. Jennie & Kieran are a fantastic couple, really down to earth, very organised and very much my sort of people. Despite her incredible efficiency and brilliant orchestration of events, Jennie couldn’t control the weather. Unfortunately, after the day started bright and warm - this was mid July - it wasn’t long before regular summer was replaced by British Summer™and we had ourselves some rather torrential rain. Driving home on the M20 was an exercise in wheeled-boating that I am not keen to repeat anytime soon!

The wedding itself was a different matter of course. (Wedding Day + Epic Castle) x Lovely People = Fantastic Time Had By All! Seriously enjoyed this one. Despite being indoors more than we hoped, the nature of a castle is that the rooms are large enough and the ceilings high enough for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves. One of the real joys with a venue as sprawlingly large as Leeds Castle - it’s a good long walk around the moat - is finding the angles that work well photographically. Sometimes the locations that are most visually spectacular to the human eye are somewhat more demanding to box into the confines of a viewfinder frame. I love this sort of challenge.

Jennie & Kieran were unfailingly calm on the day, a couple clearly at peace with their decision to tie the knot and absolutely sure that they’re right for one another. That’s a special thing to photograph and something I really enjoy trying to commit to ‘film’. My thanks to them for letting me share their day, for picking such a ridiculously superb location and being unfailingly welcoming, enthusiastic and fun all day long. As always, below are a selection of my favourites from the day:
