A Nettlestead Place wedding in Kent. Rebecca and Andrew had a civil ceremony in the rose garden of this gorgeous wedding venue. After the ceremony, I bought them round to the front of this magnificent building to capture the reflections in the water.
Nettlestead Place wedding photography
This small lake has a path running all the way around at water level allowing you to get really great reflection photos of the building and the couple. The higher tier, walled garden also has a beautiful, flower lined path running all the way around this stunning feature of the wedding venue. The other surrounding gardens are also really beautiful, this shot using the willow tree in the background below I thought worked really well. There’s also a lovely archway through to the main facade of the building which has vines adorning the brickwork of this ancient building.
After catching some group photographs on the meadow lawn of Nettlestead Place, we went for a walk in one of the wilder Gardens, where a plethora of wildflowers is in full bloom in these early days of August. Rebecca’s wedding dress was absolutely beautiful, with a lightweight train and a short elegant veil at the base of her hair.
In golden hour, we went for a short walk across the road to a wheat field that’s just ready for harvest. The sun was very low in the sky and very strong, creating some interesting lens flare and some golden pastel colour in these shots. Despite the harsh light, the delicate editing process really helps here to create soft colours and adjust the atmosphere of the photo depending on the mood of the picture. As you’ll see from my portfolio, I love golden hour photos and you can see much more of these pictures in the link here.
