Dungeness Wedding Photographer | Hannah + Steven

  • Creative Wedding Photography in Dungeness

From the moment Hannah and Steven booked me to be their Dungeness wedding photographer I knew they had an epic day planned. A planned that involved two trips on a vintage routemaster bus, a lighthouse, a miniature railway and a barn set in the Kent countryside. Their ceremony at The Old Lighthouse in Dungeness was planned for the afternoon but everyone was to travel together to get there. More about that later.

Hannah, Steven, their family and closest friends got ready at their wedding reception venue in Canterbury. This was a massive converted barn they found on Airbnb! And what a great find it was with stunning views of the Kent countryside and room for everything they needed to host the after party. Hannah looked absolutely stunning with her outfit finished off perfectly with a unique dove wing headdress. The couple are a fan of taxidermy and Hannah searched far and wide to find the perfect piece to finish off her look. I think you’ll agree that she absolutely nailed it! Steven also deserves a mention for his very stylish slim fitting three piece suit and yellow socks. Strong look my man, love it.

Once everyone was ready we boarded a classic red routemaster which was taking us to the ceremony in Dungeness. A couple of stops en route saw all of the guests collected and they were entertained on the bus by a bespoke quiz created by Hannah and Steven. Being big music and film fans many of the fiendishly difficult questions featured their favourite bands, lyrics and films.

When we arrived in Dungeness there was no rest for Hannah and Steven. They were at the centre of getting everything set up for the ceremony. There was cake to unbox, bunting to put up and post ceremony drinks to arrange. I have to salute this pair’s dedicated to planning and hosting the exact day they wanted. No detail went went unnoticed. The ceremony in The Old Lighthouse was full of emotion, a perfect end to the first half of the day.

Celebrations started with bubbles and cake outside the lighthouse. Then another mode of transport for us to experience. Packed lunch bags were handed out for a trip on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Miniature Railway which took us north along the Kent coast to Hythe where we met up again with the bus to complete the route back to Canterbury. Take away fish and chips were served, speeches made, games played and the night partied away. The day was rounded off with a beautiful Chinese lantern release.

What. A. Day.

I couldn’t have asked for any more from Hannah and Steven. They completely understood my documentary approach to wedding photography and just let me get on with telling the story of their day. It was fitting that I recently won my first Reportage Award for a shot taken at this wedding. A massive thank you to the couple and all of their family and friends for making me feel so welcome.

Here are the photos. There are quite a lot but I just couldn’t cut it down to any less than this.
