LYMPNE CASTLE MILITARY WEDDING
It’s hard to believe that is is almost a year since this Lympne Castle Military Wedding… Kerry and Stuart had booked their wedding photography with me two years before their wedding and we had met up in the summer before for their pre-wedding shoot.
On the day of the wedding, it was extremely cold and it became really obvious that outdoor photography would be very limited, however, Lympne Castle is one of those venues that is beautiful inside as well as outside.
Kerry and the girls all got ready in the cottages and later walked down to the main castle for some formal family photos with her Mum and Dad and the bridesmaids and pageboy.
Both Kerry’s Dad and also Stuart’s Dad have served in the Military and Kerry’s Dad is still in the Military and wore his uniform for the ceremony and certainly added some impact to the day.
Stuart and his best men all braved the cold for their photos before the ceremony along with his parents.
The ceremony itself took place in at Lympne Castle in front of family and friends and was conducted by KCC, Kerry was given away by her Dad and was accompanied by her three bridesmaids and one pageboy.
AFTER THE CEREMONY
After the ceremony, time was given for candid photos whilst Lympne Castle staff cleared the ceremony room so that the room could be cleared for the group photos.
We did manage to get outside for all of 5-minutes so that the confetti could be thrown with Lympne Castle behind everyone.
THE FIRST DANCE
Just before the first dance, the couple cut their wedding cake, which had been made by Stuart’s Mum. Then the bride and groom kicked off the first dance and then it was the turn of Kerry to dance with her Dad and Stuart to dance with his Mum.
The wedding really was a family affair with both Mum’s providing many of the decorations for the day… They certainly did manage to make some really lovely items that meant the world to the couple.
Here are a few images from the day.
