I met Kate & Chris for the first time a few weeks before their wedding, at their venue – the beautiful Hampton Court Palace! Kate works at the palace & I met them during her lunch break – after lunch Kate treated me a wonderful tour around the palace & the grounds, which allowed me to see all the parts of the palace she loved & learn a little of the history behind the place! – To say her passion for the palace shone through was a complete understatement! I love it when couples pick venues that truly mean something to them, and when that venue is an Epic Palace – you really can’t go wrong!
They got married in The Little Banqueting House in the grounds of the palace – Then headed over the road to Hampton Court House for the reception & evenings entertainment. I’ve photographed lots of weddings at Hampton Court House & it’s always a brilliant venue.
Beautiful surroundings aside, the day was filled with all the things you need for a brilliant wedding! – fun people who travelled far & wide to be there, a brilliant atmosphere & most importantly, two people who absolutely love each other!
I started the day with Kate & her family at their house –
The lovely Carolanne Armstrong was on hand with the makeup & Hairstyling (& face pulling.)
I headed down to meet Chris & the boys who were just leaving their hotel and heading to the palace.
The fabulous Cordes du Roi Quartet entertained everyone!
Time for a quick game of crush the grape =)
