Another stunning Kent Wedding Venue to add to our Wedding Venues series, and such a sunny day for the bride and groom to exchange vows! Nestled in Birchinton by the coast in the Garden of England, only a short drive from Canterbury or Margate, this stunning wedding venue is one of our favourites. With stunning grounds and a beautiful couple who had their engagement session (in Malta no less) to prepare them for stunning wedding imagery, how could we not provide amazing photos from them to remember for a lifetime…
WEDDINGS AT QUEX PARK – KENT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Quex House is a beautiful country house overflowing with gorgeous wedding photo locations and opportunities. From the glorious interior of the Museum and ‘Roberts Room’ for bride getting ready photos, to the huge grounds with fountains, ponds, and gardens dotting the landscape, you’d really have to try hard to take a bad photo here.
Quex House resides next to the Powell-Cotton Museum which includes a beautiful array of natural history exhibits to explore. For your wedding day, The African Gallery is available for drinks receptions. Weddings at Quex boasts only one wedding party per day (exclusive hire) with exclusive use of the Dining Room for your wedding breakfast and evening party, as well as the patio areas, gazebo and a large area of the gardens. Having your ceremony at Quex (as Maddie & Jamie did) also ensures use of the Grand Hall or Gazebo for civil ceremony, and use of the Bridal Dressing Room.
Maddie & Jamie’s Spectacular Wedding Day at Quex Park
I first met Maddie at a Wedding Fair in Kent and immediately hit it off with her and her bridesmaids, I knew this was going to be a spectacular wedding to document! When I met Maddie & Jamie for the initial consult I had mentioned that I always invite clients to meet me when shooting abroad for their engagement session or post-bridal sessions, they both seem excited by the prospect and the writing was on the wall… It was only a matter of time before they booked to meet us in Malta for their pre-wedding photo session!
Maddie & Jamie met us in Malta for a fun packed afternoon and evening of wonderful destination wedding photography. It was an exciting day with lots of driving and photo locations, but this couple were troopers and we got some amazing imagery (followed by one of the best Italian restaurants in Valetta!). Not long after this I met them for the timeline consultation and venue walk around where we discussed the best way to document their special day for them. Here I found out that Maddie was going to have both her father’s walk her down the aisle – an exciting first for us at Mykey Day Photography. Here we also discussed the night time opportunities as Quex Park allows all sorts of fireworks, and in the end we settled upon some smoke photography (which all the wedding party was excited about).
Maddie & Jamie had also really wanted a Same-Day-Slideshow, where we show approximately 80-100 images from the wedding day fully edited on large screen at the reception for day-guests and evening guests to enjoy alike. Same-Day-Slideshows are very difficult to get right on the day, but with such brilliant clients as Maddie & Jamie, it was both easy and thoroughly enjoyable to compile, edit, and then show this on their wedding day.
Many thanks again to this wonderful couple, and please see below for our favourites from their wedding day.
