Port Lympne is a location I know very well. But I have never photographed a wedding of my own there. I’ve visited for networking and had tours around the safari park and so I was delighted to be contacted by Crystal to see if I might be available for a few hours to capture their celebrations.
Crystal and Scott had decided to get married with only their children present and witnesses. They chose the iconic location at Archbishops Palace in Maidstone and wanted to keep it all very low key. However, they had also booked a safari at Port Lympne (https://www.aspinallfoundation.org/) and an overnight stay … and only told the children on the morning.
Excitement levels were high … not only for Crystal and Scott and their children but for me too. We had arranged to meet at the entrance to the Mansion at Port Lympne and although the weather was drab and quite chilly, we knew we had some exciting times to come.
We were so lucky that there were also bluebells along one of the long paths which radiate out from the Mansion. Another stunning backdrop, provided entirely by nature.
I cover weddings big and small. If you would like to find out more, please do get in touch.
