Fun and intimate New Years Eve wedding with Kim and Dave

I’ve known Kim and Dave for years through the entertainment agency we used to work together. When they have asked me to photograph their New Years Eve wedding, I couldn’t even begin to express my excitement.

Kim has decided to get ready at the comfort of her own house, surrounded by her family. With Christmas trees, cards and carols in the background, bridal preparations mode was fully on! Prosecco for breakfast, laughs and giggles for lunch! Evie and I even got to challenge each other at sonic – and yes she beat me! Everyone was so relaxed and jolly. When Kim’s hair and makeup had the perfect finish, it was the time to put her gown on!

They have decided to have an intimate ceremony at Archbishop’s Palace in Maidstone, Kent. It’s a fascinating place with breathtaking interiors. Dave was nervously waiting for his bride at the altar, and his hands were shaking. When Kim walked down the aisle with her brothers, Dave was in tears. The civil ceremony was kept short and entertained by Evie’s Disney poem.

The reception felt like a fairy tale with checkered dance floor, wedding cake topped with Mickey and Minnie, clock table centrepieces and Cinderella styled first dance. Oh, and let’s not forget about the super fun photobooth made by Kim’s brother!

Of course, what is a New Years Eve wedding without fireworks?! Kim and Dave did prepare for this matter, and together with guests, we have set up a sparkly tunnel. They have celebrated the New Year with a new way to live! Congratulations guys! It was a pleasure to be there for you.

“You made us feel totally at ease from the second we booked you. Always happy to give your advice and you took a great interest in our big day, which was lovely. Our engagement shoot in Hyde Park was fantastic and made us so excited about what shots you would come up with on our NYE wedding day, which did not disappoint!! You really captured the atmosphere of the day, and we really love the natural shots you took as well as the more posed photos….you are like a silent ninja with a camera but also able to direct people when needed. We are so grateful and will treasure our photos forever.” – Kim & Dave
