Such a brilliant day for a Kings Chapel wedding on Saturday, even the rain later in the day didn’t dampen the spirits.
A Kings Chapel wedding is a unique experience. This converted 18th century chapel features a spectacular dome with light pouring down on it’s circular design. This really makes for an intimate and alternative day.
I arrived to glorious sunshine and met Mel and the bridal party for some preparatory shots at the Kings Arms Hotel, a short walk from the venue. The bride and groom have a total of five children so this made for a very busy and colourful time. Onto the chapel itself where Tim and guests were slowing filling this beautiful space so allowing for candid, unobtrusive moments.
Mel and the bridal party began the slow walk just after a downpour and you could feel the tension in the air. I quickly entered and caught this beautiful entrance framed by everyone and the incredible light. Lots of laughter and a few tears throughout the ceremony with the children playing a key part. I was able to discreetly move to all parts of the chapel so allowing for expansive ceremony photography.
With the weather holding we exited into the gardens for confetti and congratulations. Drinks and canapes followed and the funs and games began. Finally the rain got the better of us and we made our way indoors. I made use if the gallery upstairs for some family shots prior to dragging the newlyweds outside as I have found a dry spot under the big tree in the garden for some private moments.
Soon it was time for the wedding breakfast in a truly relaxed atmosphere that was perfect for this family orientated wedding. Lovely candid moments including some great speeches also. With the band set up and ready to go the dancing soon began on earnest. Another super Kings Chapel wedding.
