We’re no strangers to the beautiful Kent Wedding Venue The Orangery at Turkey Mill in Maidstone having photographer weddings there many times before, however this one involved A LOT of rain with some sunny spells – proving the glorious English Summer is still ‘English’ at heart 😉 . As well as Dan & Dani’s wedding there earlier this year we were also submitted for awards for some of our photos from Lyndsey & James’ wedding at the Orangery Turkey Mill a few years ago. So it was exciting to return, and a fun challenge to shoot around the rain!
Wedding Photography At The Orangery
The Orangery is an exclusive use specialist wedding venue located in Maidstone not far from Canterbury or London and set within nine acres of beautiful gardens with pump house and waterfall for spectacular wedding photos for your wedding day. The Orangery at Turkey Mill also contains a large terrace with parasols for guests to relax and sip cocktails, as well as both inside and outside wedding ceremony options. The inside option is in Garden Room which is a light and elegant room with large skylight window for a light and airy wedding decor. From the large windows guests can view the stunning gardens, river and skies.
The outside wedding option is in the ‘idyllic Gazebo’ (click here to see pics from this wedding for examples of an outdoor wedding at the Orangery Turkey Mill) situated high up in the beautiful grounds across the two walkway bridges where, British Summertime allowing!, you can be married in the picturesque Garden of England proper!
Of a night the venue is lit up for some beautiful night time wedding photography – which seals the Orangery’s reputation as one of the top Kent Wedding Venues.
Kent Wedding Venue Turkey Mill
We woke to beautiful sunny skies and wonderful blue horizons – but alas, it was destined to be a wet wedding at one of Kent’s top wedding venues… However this was not a problem, as with such stunning locations to choose from – and with a few breaks in the rain – we were able to capture some stunning photos for this lovely couple.
Maria was very keen on night time shots and some creative sparkler shots – something we were super excited to do for this stunning bride. Whilst in the middle of setting up our stuff the glorious golden skies came out and allowed for some super spectacular wedding photos at the Orangery Turkey Mill.
