Louisa Dettmer Wedding Photography Lisa & Erol, Orangery Maidstone, June.

It’s this gorgeous ladies Birthday today, and just a couple of months ago she married her lovely husband Erol within the stunning grounds of The Orangery, Maidstone.

We’d love to share some of their fab shots with you all.

The girls prep was well underway as we arrived at the Marriott Tudor park, conveniently just up the road from The Orangery.  Lisa had a lovely terrace room.  The sun shone and the ladies looked stunning with their hair and makeup by Zara Rose.

Duncan nipped along the corridor to catch up with Erol and the couple’s super cute son Eren as they put the finishing touches to their smart outfits – Blue suits from Moss Bros.

As we left the boys to make their way to the venue, we were able to capture some shots of our bride looking amazing in her dress from Bromley Brides before heading to the venue ourselves.

And WOW – The Orangery looked fabulous!  The wedding Breakfast Room was styled to perfection by Ethereal Events and beautiful floristry by Passion Floral Design.  The Bride and Groom are Horse Racing fans so the tables were fittingly named after famous Horse Race Days – it was Ascot Friday after all!

We fired off some lovely candid shots of the boys greeting their guests before making our way down to meet Lisa on her arrival at The Wisteria Suite at The Orangery.

Lisa arrived in style in a beautiful open top vintage car from All Kent Wedding Cars, and made her way with her bridesmaids towards her waiting Groom Erol.

The Bride and her Bridesmaids delicate blush pink bouquets (also by Passion Floral Design) topped off their pretty pink look.

Lisa and Erol married in the shade of The Orangery Gazebo surrounded by their family and friends.  Their son Eren did himself (and them!) proud by presenting the rings from his special little briefcase!

After lots of mingling, candid shots with their guests, a wander around the grounds with the couple themselves and requested formal group shots the couple took their seats for a delicious wedding breakfast by Souffle To You.

The Bride and Groom enjoyed the early evening sun with their guests on the terrace before making their big entrance to the dancefloor with their wedding party to the sight and sound of the Turkish Drums.  The couple had their first dance as Husband and Wife and we left them to dance the night away with their family and friends.

Thank you for having us along to your absolutely gorgeous wedding day – And Happy Birthday for today – I hope you have had a wonderful day Lisa and your boys have spoilt you!! xxxx
