Leeds Castle was the venue for competition winners Davina and Rufus. I ran a free wedding shoot prize to publicise the fledgeling business and was delighted to find the winners had booked Leeds Castle in Kent as their venue.
Obviously not short of a bob or two its the only wedding I’ve yet attended where all the grooms best friends were in top hat and tails! Made for some wonderful pictures of course . The weather wasn’t great however and I had fingers crossed that we would see some sun as some point in the day. It wasn’[t until the very final few minutes before the wedding breakfast that the light broke through and I took the images that I have used ever since as my main opening shots on the website and in adverts etc.
This image is from much earlier in the day, just outside the church beside the castle. Leeds Castle was going to be reached by horse and carriage for the wedded couple and as they made their way down to it Davina wanted to have a photograph taken with this cushion...made by her grandmother I believe and symbolic of good fortune and a happy marriage!
Taking the image I was struck by what it meant to her and how happy her new husband Rufus was to be at her side in this moment.
