Margate Engagement Shoot // Kirsty and Simon

Margate engagement shoot with Kirsty and SimonAs Chas and Dave once said, ‘Down to Margit’, and so we did! I headed down to the seaside town of Margate, to meet with Kirsty and Simon for their Margate engagement shoot.

When Kirsty mentioned Margate in our emails, I thought hell yeah! It’s a place that has not been on my radar for years. I can honestly say, it’s been over 20 years since I have been on the sandy shores of Margate.

On arrival, I feel it’s a place that kind of sits in a 1970’s time bubble. Dreamland, a building filled with everything you could want as 70’s Londoner, still sits proudly on the seafront.

BUT, this place is cool! Not only is there the Turner Contemporary building sitting on the shore, but the old town is pretty interesting.

If you’re is thinking of hitting Margate this summer, here’s my tip – take a bucket and spade! As it’s a got bloody lovely beach.

It was very cool meeting up with Kirsty and Simon, who did not stop smiling the whole time. It really was a lot of fun, even if the heavens opened towards the end.
