Another big tick achieved that’s been on my wish list for as long as I can remember is to shoot a Wedding At The Gallivant at Camber Sands. My folks used to take me and my sister when we were kids to Camber Sands to fly kites and run around until we were completely shattered and then we’d drive home covered with my Dads old rug on the backseat of the car.
Ever since The Gallivant opened I’ve thought that it’d be a phenomenal place to get married and I couldn’t have been more right. It’s everything and more. A wonderful location with incredible photographic opportunities, with great food and great staff to boot.
Sandra and Jun were married in the old church at the very top of Rye town centre looking out towards the coastline and then made their way back to The Gallivant. Everyone kicked off their shoes and hopped into a pair of flip flops for drinks and canapés on the beach, it was pretty special.
One of the most challenging things about being a Kent Wedding Photographer is constantly being aware of the light changing around you. On this occasion the speeches over ran a little and the sun had sunk well below the horizon. We could’ve given up but instead we just kept on climbing as high as we could go to the very top of the sand dunes and just about found some colour in the twilight, those frames have ended up being some of my favourite of the year so far.
If you’re planning a Wedding At The Gallivant I’d absolutely love to hear from you!
