The Old Kent Barn Wedding Photographer – The Marriage of Emma and Tim

Emma and Tim were married at The Old Kent Barn in Swingfield near Folkestone in Kent in August. I was so pleased to be a part of their special day in August – they are a really super couple and were great fun to work with.

It was a very emotional, moving ceremony and a day full of joy and laughter and tender moments.  A beautiful couple – a beautiful day.

Here’s a few images from the day…

Emma’s bridal preperations started at her parent’s house in Whitstable, Kent…

I love this shot of Emma!  Emma’s bubbly personality first showed itself when we first met, then later at their engagement shoot when her mischievous side was revealed!

The wedding breakfast tables were beautifully dressed and Emma had made a lot of the decorations herself – creatively designed and embroidered  – her attention to detail was so impressive and a very personal touch.

The sunlight streaming through the windows of the barn cast contrasting shadows of the pretty, delicate flowers on the tables – very striking!  I absolutely loved the flowers – they were supplied by Michele Wraight at Flower Art, based at Brogdale Farm in Faversham, Kent  (

Emma collected these bone china cups and saucers over a long period and used them to contain pretty countryside style of flowers together with delicate pink roses – stunning!  I was very touched when Emma and Tim gifted me a cup a saucer as a thank you – it’s a very special reminder of a beautiful day…

Another sunny day at The Old Kent Barn!

It’s important to include group shots in the itinerary for the day to record those close to you, although I would advise a maximum of 6-8 as they can be quite time consuming and interrupt the flow of the day.  I have to say that I prefer more relaxed group shots that draw out some personality of the group

Let the dancing begin!

Many congratulations Emma & Tim!
