I was super excited to get an email land in my inbox today from none other than Kate Hennessey. Kate is a Kent Based photographer who’s photos are the very definition of ‘romantic’. She has an eye for the most beautiful images and angles, and she really does capture a bride at her best.
I had the pleasure of working with Kate at Lympne Castle for one of our brides Jessica. Now, having married at Lympne Castle myself I know I’m possibly being a tad biast when I say that it honestly is ( in my opinion! ) one of the most stunning backdrops you could possibly find for your wedding day. As Kent wedding venues go, Lympne Castle has it all- everything from breathtaking views to log fires and for your wedding day its totally and completely yours…. your very own castle!
My own opinion aside,  it’s easy to see from Jessica’s beautiful wedding pictures just why so many people fall in love and want their big day here. The views across the Kent countryside are something to marvel at , and on a clear day you can see for miles and miles. Inside , the oak panelled walls and separate areas to dress, dance and even the gardens to explore mean there’s something for everyone.
I had the pleasure of styling Jessica’s hair for her wedding day. We got ready in a separate area inside the castle, dedicated to the bride on the morning so she can get ready at the venue privately. Jessica’s bleach blonde statement locks were twisted and twirled into a really feminine, pretty, ‘undone’ updo. Keeping everything full of volume we were able to shape her hair into the ‘I just threw this up’ type of casual style that is so popular amongst the ‘relaxed’ bride. We added fresh flowers to her hair which gave the most beautiful contrast between her creamy hair tones and gave the whole style a natural, earthy vibe. I tucked small rose buds and sprigs of gyp randomly throughout her bridal hair style so that no matter what angle people were seeing her from they could catch a glimpse of that little ‘something extra’ at every turn!
Have a browse through some of her lovely pictures that I’ve attached below and be sure to check out Kate’s website here. It’s clear to see why so many brides love her style. On her website she really sums it up perfectly when she says…
‘’Capturing those natural moments and genuine emotions will serve as a reminder of not just how your day looked but more importantly, how it felt ‘’
I’m always reminding brides to be that if you know that you look amazing, you’ll feel amazing – and that feeling , that you’re at your absolute best, on the absolute best day of your life, is simply priceless!
