One of the perks of this job is you get to photograph at some amazing wedding venues. The Winding House is definitely one of them. An impressive victorian converted coal heritage building in the Kent countryside. Think grand designs with its contemporary interior, high ceilings, exposed bricks and white walls. A stunning setting for a wedding with an abundance of natural light so even on a not so nice September day it was a joy to photograph in.
Hannah and Tom were both getting ready at the White Cliffs hotel in nearby Dover, Hannah and her bridesmaids upstairs in the top room while Tom and the boys mainly downstairs by the bar.
With the weather so rubbish there was no hanging around at The Winding House, straight inside to mingle with the guests. The bridal party did extremely well to not go flying when entering the house over the walkway. This was my first time photographing a Jewish ceremony so the first time I’d witnessed smashing the glass at the end of a ceremony and Tom did a fine job!
After the ceremony and meal accompanied by some heartfelt emotional speeches it was time for the Hora which from the look of Hannah and Tom’s face’s i’m still unsure whether it was a pleasant experience or not.
Lucy at Wildbloom did a marvellous job with the flowers and thanks to Denise from one love pictures for assisting me on the day. This was a great wedding for me to photograph, an incredible couple, very accommodating with a great set of family and friends and all happening in a perfect venue with great light. If you are getting married at The Winding House then don’t hesitate to get in touch for a chat.
