The wedding of Cia and Gareth at Barnyard Upchurch was a real treat this summer. A beautiful marque set beside an orchard with the most wonderful views of the Kent countryside.
I met Cia and Gareth for the first time about a year before their wedding day and I remember thinking two things. 1) wow these guys are organised and 2) wow these guys are so nice. We had a little walk around the grounds and I couldn’t really hide how much I wanted to be part of their wedding day with comments like “seriously, an orchard, this is like a photographers dream”.
Following our first meet, we took a trip down to Whitstable for our pre-wedding shoot, which remains one of my favourite locations for portraits so far. Regardless of how cold it was. It was an absolute pleasure photographing this wedding and even though I burnt about 1000 calories running back and forth from the church to Cia and Gareth’s home during bridal prep, I have nothing but happy memories about their great day.
