Intimate The Manor Gatehouse Wedding Kent
With its exposed beams, and beautiful grounds, The Manor Gatehouse in Kent was a stunning location for Katie and Alan’s intimate wedding. Looking elegant and composed, Katie’s blue nail polish and handmade flower bouquet reflected the ‘winter wonderland’ theme perfectly as she made her way to the front while everyone watched in awe. Dressed in white to match the bride, or blue to match the groom, the kids in the wedding elicited many ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from the guests throughout the ceremony, and by the end practically everyone in the room was in tears.
After the vows, it was over to the historical Eynsford Castle ruins to catch the sunset and enjoy the beautiful views as we took both the group and couple photographs in this stunning location. It really was a perfect sunset to match a perfect day, and the Norman walls served as a great setting for some cracker photographs of the couple.
After the formal photographs, the party moved across the road to The Castle Hotel, where the wedding breakfast was a lavish buffet held in the library room with its gorgeous bookshelf backdrop, just ideal for a small and intimate wedding celebrations like Katie and Alan’s big day. It felt warm and welcoming as it was all festively decorated for Christmas, with pine cones holding the table placement names and little Christmas trees serving as the centrepiece.
This truly was a winter wedding, with the bridesmaids dressed in white furry coats, and the bride’s icy blue and silver accessories. Cosy and warm, light hearted and jubilant, this was a wedding of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’, face pulling and fun, and the day felt just like a Christmas day celebration with the whole family.
