Mount Ephraim Gardens, Kent Wedding Photographer – Anne & Jason

Anne & Jason chose Mount Ephraim Gardens over a year ago for their marriage venue – what a great choice – the Edwardian gardens are spectacular, the house, which dates back to 300 years ago is beautiful and the team who run and co-ordinate the weddings and celebrations, including Sally, Rachel and Caroline, couldn’t be more helpful and accommodating – this was my first time shooting a wedding here and I was really looking forward to it.  I wasn’t disappointed and Anne & Jason were thrilled!

The day in late August started off for me by shooting the preparations at the main house at Mount Ephraim.  Anne had been joined by her mother, sister and sisters and Mother in law to be!  There was lots of excitement and pink bubbly being poured – a really fun atmosphere.  Meanwhile Jason and his ushers gathered in the Grand Hall below….

We were so lucky with the weather – managing to avoid the rain shower after Anne took the wise decision to opt for holding the ceremony in the Grand Hall rather than on the Edwardian Terrace.  And how lucky were we to have a double rainbow later on early evening!

It was a perfect day!

The bridal flowers and corsage were created by Pod Floral Design in Whitstable, Kent.  The attention to details was beautiful – even the way they were delivered.  Understated, but elegantly stylish…

Anne looked so beautifully elegant….

The tables names were taken from favourite Beatles tracks….

These next few images were shot in the Mizmaze – a location within the gardens that Anne and I had decided pre-ceremony would have to be a must to shoot in.  This area is a mixture of ornamental grasses and herbaceous  perennials – beautiful to shoot in, in particular when shooting into the sun so as to back light Anne & Jason.

and fun was had by all………

    It’s just over four months on now from our big day and as the time goes by it makes you realise just how important photographs of the event really are as well as finding the right person to capture them.

    We love looking through these again and again – thank you Catherine! You were absolutley brilliant not only on the day but also in the run up to and the months after (even until today) helping me with the album selection.

    Very special memories
