ONE OF THE BEST FIRST DANCES I'VE EVER SEEN!
When Aran and Nadia first got in touch with me about their St Augustines wedding in Westgate on Sea, I was so excited – they were planning the most beautiful and stylish wedding with a Moon, a quiz and even masked ball! Aran and Nadia seemed like the sweetest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
The excitement before the wedding
I rocked up at St Augustine's, where the bride and her family were getting ready, and it was so much fun, because all the girls were there. Nadia wore a gown that she had created herself and Aran wore dapper three piece suit and they looked so perfect.
The wedding took place in The Chapel at St Augustines, and was an intimate intimate ceremony. They had some beautiful readings, which brought pretty much everyone to tears. After the ceremony there was a big cheer from everyone, and then they were showered with confetti.
The wedding reception took place in The Ruby Room, which was adorned with drapes, and gorgeous white flowers. It was really unique.
It was a sunny, cloudless day, which was glorious. While the guests hung around drinking Prosecco, the couple mingled while I took candids. My favourite photo from the afternoon is a candid of the couple in the gazebo.
During the reception they a quiz, which determined the couple's first dance later that evening. For the wedding breakfast they had a buffet, and it was loved by all the guests. After the wedding breakfast they had some wonderful speeches, and everyone migrated to the bar. They also had a paper moon, which meant everyone got a photo with the Paper Moon and the Couple. The First Dance was Despacito - where Aran & Nadia surprised me by being professional Salsa Dancers!
Nadia and Aran met at a masked ball in London.
Here’s their beautifully stunning Kent wedding!
