The wedding of Charlotte and Charlie was a day filled with joy, laughter, and unforgettable moments. From the heartfelt ceremony to the lively reception, every aspect of the event was carefully planned to create a magical experience for the couple and their guests.

Bridal preparations took place in one of Eastwell Manor’s grand suites overlooking the gardens. Karlie worked her magic on Charlotte’s hair, creating a stunning bridal look that perfectly complemented her style and personality. With skilful techniques and attention to detail, the hair styling added an extra touch of sophistication to the bride’s overall appearance.

Avril Jarrett enhanced Charlotte’s natural beauty with flawless makeup, accentuating her features and ensuring she glowed radiantly on her special day.

Charlie and his groomsmen were also on site so as we captured some handsome photos of the gentlemen’s preparations and gift exchanges.

The Bishop of Bayeux room at Eastwell Manor provided a personal, romantic space for the wedding ceremony. It was styled spectacularly by Ellouise from Flowers-by-EG, with the floral bouquets adding the perfect finishing touches to make the room truly special. Our favourite moment from the ceremony was when the couple did an amazing “dip and kiss” at the end.

After the ceremony, we moved outside for formal group photos on the famous stone steps, with the hotel as a backdrop creating elegant and professional photos. Despite the weather starting to turn, we continued with bridal party photos on the lawn and terrace area.

With light rain falling, Charlotte and Charlie wanted to continue with their photos, and we are pleased we did as the rain was light and didn’t last very long. We wanted to make the best use of the spectacular grounds available, we had a route planned that included the fountain, the lawn and steps, finishing at the Italian Walled Maid’s Garden.  Charlotte looked radiant and elegant in all her photos and Charlie dressed in his black tux really finished off the classy look the couple were hoping for.

The wedding speeches were so heart-warming and entertaining!  The father of the bride, the groom, and his best-men had everyone laughing and feeling a bit teary-eyed. It was a truly special moment for everyone.

The wonderful Nyko kept us all entertained with his amazing table and close up magic tricks throughout the day and into the evening. Then the lively band Penfold took over, getting everyone up and dancing until the early hours of the morning.

After capturing all the important photos, we always make ourselves available to mingle with the guests and parents, chatting and capturing lots of candid moments.

It was truly an honour to be a part of Charlotte and Charlie’s special day, and we wish them nothing but love and happiness in their life together.

We are grateful to be a recommended supplier for Eastwell Manor and always look forward to photographing weddings there.
