Funfair Wedding in Kent

Well where do I start with Lucy and Tom. I have known Lucy for a number of years now through a mutual friend. When Lucy and Tom asked me if I would like to be their wedding photographer at their funfair wedding in Kent, I was absolutely blown away. The thing about Lucy and Tom is that they are two of the most stylish and cool people I know.. and they asked me to be their wedding photographer.. woah!! If you don’t believe how cool they are firstly you only need to have one look at their wedding and secondly this is Lucy’s company that she runs which sells the best and most stylish homewares found.

So Lucy and Tom got married at the incredibly unique wedding venue, Preston Court in Kent back in May 2017. For those that don’t know Preston Court is a funfair themed venue which boasts its own Victorian carousel and fields and fields of Victorian funfair memorabilia. For a couple who met whilst working at the theme park Paultons, what better place to celebrate than here. After Lucy got ready at The Salutation (yes of Gogglebox fame) we went on to my absolute favourite part with an outdoor ceremony in the grounds of Preston Court under a pagoda next to a huge weeping willow. It was all very romantic. Things then continued in the barn at Preston Court where two huge old Dutch dance floor organ wooden structures (very hard to explain) dominated the barn.

Where do I start with the table decorations at this funfair wedding in Kent?? I’m hoping you can see from the pictures the amount of skill and imagination that went into them. Each table was named after a different area of Paultons with each centre piece being unique to that theme. … We had a hanging gold tea cups, Rabbits, dinosaurs, suspended Scalextric cars and a working train track. Honestly pretty hard to explain but you just had to be there I suppose.

With Lucy’s incredible top and skirt number from House Of Ollichon, her pink bridal hair and her bespoke embodied veil by Hermione de Paula, I’ve never had a bride been able to combine cool and alternative with gorgeous, pretty and chic,.. She ticked all the bride boxes.

Invitations and illustrations were by Georgina Trestler with the rest of the stationery by Emmy Designs. The yummy cake was made by Emily Eats with the venue beautifully styled by and Tiggi from Tiggi Winkle and decorated with pom poms from Bohemia Designs.

Too many details to talk about so I am just going to get on and show some pictures now. If you do want to know more about the day, written in a much more eloquently way than my waffle, then Lucy has written all about it over on her blog here.
