 Leeds Castle, located in Kent, England, is an enchanting and historic venue that offers a truly unforgettable wedding experience. Nestled amidst the rolling hills of the English countryside, this magnificent castle dates back to the 12th century and is steeped in rich history and charm. Its breathtaking architecture and idyllic surroundings make it the perfect backdrop for couples seeking a fairytale-like wedding. With its picturesque setting amidst beautiful gardens and surrounded by a moat, it exudes romance and elegance. The castle boasts several stunning spaces to host both ceremonies and receptions, allowing couples to tailor their big day according to their vision. The Castle Rooms and Henry VIII Banqueting Hall provide regal backdrops for exchanging vows or dining with loved ones, while the Fairfax Hall offers a contemporary and versatile space for larger celebrations. Additionally, couples can opt for outdoor ceremonies in the Maiden’s Tower Pavilion or on the Cedar Lawn overlooking the castle itself.

On a glorious June summers day, Laura and Andrew were married at the award-winning Leeds Castle in Kent, we adore photographing here and feel so lucky to be their preferred wedding photographers.

The day got off to a flying start with the ladies having their hair and makeup perfected by Grace Bailey and Stepanie Emma while I photographed the amazing Martina Liana designed dress from Isabella Grace Bridal and Duncan popped outside to shoot details of the Lace & Favour shoes and accessories.

Just before the ceremony in the Maidens Tower we caught up with the Gents for a few photos outside in the sunshine, they all looked very smart in their Ted Baker suits.

The ceremony was perfect, full of smiles, love, and laughter! Everyone then headed outside to the private garden to enjoy some refreshments and to complete the formal group photos. Having the Maidens Tower’s private garden is a real bonus as everyone gets to relax, sit and enjoy each other’s company and we can keep all the guests in one location.

For the photos of the wedding party we headed onto the Castle Island, the Bridesmaids dresses from Victoria Lou were stunning next to the grey Ted Baker suits. We set off exploring the grounds of Leeds Castle for some pictures of just Laura and Andrew before heading in for the formal wedding breakfast. Amazing food, entertaining speeches and a round of Mr & Mrs finished off a brilliant meal.

The weather was still glorious so everyone was able to enjoy the private garden to socialize, play games and have a few drinks with friends. We took the opportunity for more photos including some of Laura by herself next to the Castle, then as the sunset, it was time for the First Dance and the evening party to commence, led by the always excellent Dj, Chris from Discologic.

Thank you Laura and Andrew, for choosing us to photograph your wedding day.
