I recently had the joy of photographing Julie and David’s enchanting Winters Barns wedding in Kent. The day was truly flawless for this wonderful couple, and I felt incredibly honored to be a part of their special day. We were even graced with some gorgeous Kent sunshine to add to the magic. Scroll down to see their beautiful day unfold.

First names: Julie and David
Ages: 38 and 41
Wedding date: 27 October 2023
Venue: Winters Barns

How did you guys meet, tell me all?

We met many years ago at the wedding of our Best Man and Bridesmaid. At one of their house parties 6 years later, we got together.

How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?

We got engaged in Mar 20 at Simpsons in the Strand restaurant.  This was something that David had been planning for many weeks, with the intention of delivering the ring tied to a glass of champagne. However….. 24hrs before, Julie found out that she was expecting our baby (Henry), so when we got to the restaurant, David quickly cancelled the champagne! Julie said YES, but celebrated with a glass of lemonade!!

What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?

We only looked around a few but fell in love with Winters Barns as soon as we saw it. We felt it had the WOW factor!

Tell me about your dress?

Who was it designed by and was there a particular style you were drawn to? I tried on many different dresses but was also drawn back to a similar style, I knew as soon as I put it on that it was for me and with the expertise of the seamstress added touches to the dress to make it uniquely mine. 

What was the inspiration/theme/styling of your wedding?

We wanted an Autumn wedding but not with the typical Autumn colors, our aim was to keep it simple but after being to many friend’s wedding we were also looking for some different touches to make it personal.
