The Winding House Wedding | Sophie + Jim

  • The Winding House Wedding Photography

Sophie and Jim’s wedding had it all. A beautiful bride, amazing weather, a cool groom and wedding guests ready to party hard. It was incredible from start to finish, full of smiles, laughs and maybe a few tears (of joy).

Sophie and Jim chose The Winding House in Kent to host their big day. The Kent Coal Heritage Building, situated between Canterbury and Dover, has been lovingly restored by it’s owner Vicki. If you’re you’re looking for a beautiful and elegant venue to host your wedding in the Kent countryside then look no further. It’s a perfect blank canvas which you can really make your own with great indoor and outdoor space.

From my point of view this wedding had everything I’m looking for. Great surrounding, great light and most importantly lovely people who were happy to not only be photographed candidly but also show their emotions. Emotion is so important to my photography, it allows me to not just shoot how things looked but also how it felt. Well that’s my aim anyway. It was clear to me that Sophie and Jim have a wonderful group of family and friends who care for them very much.

Big shout to the excellent Instabox for providing the photo booth in the evening. Some photographers might not like another supplier coming in and stepping on their toes so to speak but I couldn’t feel further from that. Photo booths give my couples and their guests a chance to get their fun posed photos together, letting me carry on with my style of unposed, documentary based wedding photography. It also gives me the opportunity to incorporate some layered scenes from around the photo booth for extra story telling.

A huge congratulations to Sophie and Jim. Thanks so much for welcoming me so warmly into your wedding day. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer I’d love to hear from you and while you’re here please check out some more of my work. Here is a selection of my favourite images from Sophie and Jim’s day.
