A magical Italian garden wedding at Hever Castle: an afternoon wedding ceremony under the arched columns of the Italian loggia

MOUNT EPHRAIM

51.3022° N, 0.9589° E – Faversham, Kent


Love is UNSELFISH, UNDERSTANDING and KIND,

for it sees with its heart, and not with its mind

The feeling of an authentic Italian wedding in the heart of Kent in England…

Seamless Integration: The Power of Teamwork

As I am friends with the best friend of the bride, Nicole, of Reel Life Films, who is a wedding videographer, I associate shot for her, which means filming for her, and then supplying her with all the footage after the wedding so she could edit the videos in her own style for the bride and groom. Although she was a guest, she also brought a camera with a telephoto lens on it, and I chose a wider angle lens to complement her choice when she also joined to film for one of the couple shoots.

As it was raining, this really helped as it meant we could get multiple angles of the couple walks at the same time really quickly so Georgia and Jon could get back indoors to enjoy their time with their guests. We have quite similar styles and I’ve second shot for her on other weddings, so I love working with Nicole on her weddings. And in fact, in both my teasers I’ve used a few shots that she took—bet you can’t always tell which ones are hers and which are mine…!

Aerial Views and Scenic Vistas: Capturing Mount Ephraim’s Grandeur

If it’s a fine day you can get married outside (there is a special antique grey stone ceremony area for this) and also an awesome sloping walk from the house to magnificent steps (great for group shots too), to get to the ceremony area.

Whether an intimate gathering or a grand affair, Mount Ephraim provides a perfect backdrop for your special day. Just minutes from the M2, it’s close to Faversham, Canterbury, and Whitstable in Kent.

When I first got there, first thing in the morning, I started with the drone shots of the house and the grounds as I knew that Georgia really wanted the aerial view of the mansion, and there was a risk of rain. I use a really small drone, the Mavic Air, as it means I can get unusual angles, and it’s a quick and easy add-on if weather conditions are favourable.

Hats, hats, hats… style like you…

Normally you’d just expect to see geese and ducks in the grounds at Leeds Castle and it’s not everyday you get a gaggle of Segway riders passing by, so I quickly turned the camera to catch them as they passed by and wished the couple well!
