"Love me, and the world is mine"
~ David Reed ~
Steven and Helen were married on a day of sunshine and blue skies, set upon the backdrop of the beautiful Kent countryside.
Second shooting for Dan from DM Photography is always a pleasure, and this wedding was no exception. Driving through the picturesque countryside, on the way to meet Steven and his guests at the home he shares with Helen, I knew we were in for something special.
Helen and Steven have a beautiful home, at the end of a tiny, country lane. With an apple orchard one side of the house, a duck pond out the front and a field full of piebald ponies at the end of the lane, you couldn’t feel more in the countryside if you tried! Steven and his guests were enjoying the sunshine on the patio, while awaiting the arrival of the 1950’s bus that would transport them to the wedding venue.
Monchelsea Place is a magnificent stately home, set within 165 acres of gardens, fields and woodland. Having never been here before, I can honestly say that the home, the grounds and the views are simply breath-taking. I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone looking to have an English summer garden styled wedding.
Helen was all dressed and ready to go by the time we arrived, so with the guests assembled downstairs, it was time for the ceremony, followed by a drinks reception on the terrace.
The guests then headed back to the home of the newlyweds, for drinks on the patio and games on the lawn, before the guests were directed into a pretty marquee for an evening of live music and dancing.
It was an absolute please to spend the day with such a lovely couple and their friends and family. Congratulations Helen and Steven!
