Wedding Photographer Kent – Humanist Wedding, Margate

When you embark on a career as a photographer, it’s only a matter of time before you start capturing memories for loving couples. While conventional weddings are ideal for most people, there will be couples who need something that’s a little more tailored to their beliefs and needs. Susan and Steve are a couple who evidently love each other very much, but felt a humanist wedding was much more suitable than a religious ceremony. Many may like to capture their own special day, but feel that there may be some restrictions using wedding photographers in Kent, but this isn’t always the case. There are many ways of people showcasing their love, and I’m always happy to learn just how diverse couples are becoming when becoming a partnership.

This was my first experience of a humanist wedding, and there were plenty of rituals that made a lot of sense. One such instance is the term “tying the knot,” which was used in the literal sense during the ceremony. Humanist wedding offers the same qualities as a more conventional wedding, but offer more choice for those who may not have religious beliefs, or just wish to get married at a location that isn’t licensed for civil weddings.  Some wedding photographers in Kent may have limitations when it comes to a certain location, but I’m only too happy to travel to unique and historical locations.

My experience from being part of Susan and Steve’s big day is that just because some don’t follow the same route as others when it comes to becoming a true partnership, it doesn’t mean that the day is any less glamourous, as you can see from the pictures I captured throughout the day.

The choice for using Salmestone Grange in Kent as the venue really added an atmosphere that made for some truly mesmerising shots. The building has been preserved since the 14th century and is one of the most tranquil monastic granges located in Europe. This partnered with the delightful and friendly attendees in their beautiful outfits meant that there was little effort required in capturing memories that can be looked upon in times to come.

When looking for a photographer for your big day, don’t assume wedding photographers in Kent aren’t able to capture your special event. The photographs taken at Salmestone Grange for Susan and Steve are only a snapshot of the possibilities when a couple decides to tie the knot.
