Bethany & Joshua’s gorgeous wedding took place at the Little Hermitage, an 18th Century Georgian Country House in Kent in October 2021. It was the first time we had been to this venue, but my goodness it was a fantastic one! The house and grounds are well kept and completely private. With a Bridal prep room onsite upstairs, we didn’t have far to go to catch up with Bethany and the girls.
Bethany’s beautiful Stella York dress from Jodi’s Bridal Boutique hung on the gorgeous oval mirror in the suite, and some of the accessories by Kate Spade were on the dressing table, perfectly placed for lots of photographs of all of those things that make the day extra special.
The girl’s hair looked amazing, styled by the lovely Hair by Leona as well as flawless makeup by Freya.
We headed downstairs to greet the boys on their arrival. They all looked super smart in their Moss Bros suits and we sneaked a peek at the couples’ stunning rings created by Custom and Co in Maidstone.
As the ceremony drew near, we took our positions at the Little Hermitage’s sunning Gazebo, surrounded by the Kent Countryside and decorated to perfection with stunning blooms from Flowers by EG.
The Bridal party entered the gardens via a sweeping Georgian Stone staircase. Bethany looked amazing and they both giggled through the ceremony. It was wonderful to witness their ceremony alongside their friends and family.
The grounds at the Little Hermitage afforded so many wonderful areas for photography, and although there are lots of nice spots, the grounds themselves are not large and so finding them is super quick and easy.
The Little Hermitage pillared front entrance to the Main House was my favourite area and the images we captured of the couple chatting and giggling there are some of my favourites. With the rolling Kent Countryside in the distance, it felt like a very special time and place to be.
When it was time for their meal the couple took their seats in a splendid room with family and friends to enjoy their wedding breakfast and after cut a beautiful cake made by Sponge.co.uk.
The sunset and we left them to dance the night away to music from the in house DJ. It was a perfect end to a wonderful day. I know Bethany and Joshua both love photography themselves and it felt such an honour that they chose Louisa Dettmer Wedding Photography to capture their day. Thank you for having us along Beth and Josh- it was amazing.
