Donna & Dean Wedding-282

Providing Donna & Dean’s Salmestone Grange wedding photography was my first ever Valentine’s day wedding, and I loved every minute of it. Dean and Donna had a fairly whirlwind courtship by all accounts, with Dean proposing to Donna on Valentine’s day just a few short months after their first date, but if ever a couple were made for each other, then these two were. A year later to the day, and they were at Salmestone Grange to celebrate their marriage.

You might be forgiven for assuming a wedding on Valentine’s day would have a somewhat red colour theme running through it, but you couldn’t have been more wrong. Given that both Donna and Dean are avid Queens Park Rangers, this wedding could only ever have been blue!

Winter weddings can be quite a challenge to photograph at the best of times due to low light levels and inclement and unpredictable weather, but this year Valentine’s Day really outdid itself. It was the day of the severe storms, gale force winds, (even hurricane force in places), and torrential rain, and while Margate got off quite lightly compared to other parts of the country, it was still a very dark, stormy and wet day. Although I hadn’t expected quite such severe weather conditions, I had prepared myself to photograph the wedding in low light conditions and fully indoors if necessary, and that is exactly what happened. Happily the weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, and, as you can see from the photographs, this winter wedding was a beautiful one, with lots of love and laughter, as befitting a Valentine’s day wedding!
