The Pplough At Leigh Hildenborough

The Plough at Leigh Wedding Photography

We are thrilled to announce that we are now recommended wedding photographers for The Plough at Leigh, a gorgeous traditional independent pub at Hildenborough which serves local ales and seasonal food for wedding receptions. From 2016 The Plough will also be licensed to hold Civil Wedding Services in their beautiful barn.

We enjoyed photographing Madeleine and Josh’s wedding reception at The Plough this summer, and have been back several times with our own family to discuss and plan some forthcoming projects – and enjoy their very pretty garden!the-plough-at-leigh

We love working at The Plough, it really is a special venue for weddings and events, with a wonderful beamed 17th century barn with a stunning minstrels gallery.

The barn can seat up to 120 guests for a formal Wedding Breakfast and up to 200 for a fork buffet and evening party.

Hazel and Mick are the perfect hosts, and since their arrival two years ago they have been incredibly pro-active in making sure The Plough is the perfect country pub!

Mick and his bar team are proud of their range of traditional draught beers and lagers, including local ales from Tonbridge Brewery and other micro breweries throughout Kent. There is also a great wine menu and Prosecco menu! Their coffee is made from delicious Fair Trade Arabica Beans and they serve tea by the pint or 1/2 pint mug – always a winning move in our books!

The seasonal Restaurant Menu is created by Hazel and her team of dedicated chefs. As Hazel says ”When the seasons say we can, we pick, scavenge, pickle and preserve to enable us to provide you with those special homely touches. We bake whatever the time of year! During the winter months when our famous log fire is burning, take a peak up the chimney, the likely hood is we’ll be smoking a side or two of salmon!”

Maidstone Family Photo Shoot With Menai And Family

Back in May 2015, we had the pleasure of taking part in a Maidstone Family Photo Shoot with Menai, her husband and two fabulous daughters.

Menai was a runner-up in our Mumsnet Kent Family Photo Shoot competition and requested a family photo shoot at their lovely home in Maidstone. We love it when couples take the opportunity to style the photo shoot themselves and Menai’s idea was to set-up a canvas tent in the garden and create a teddy bear’s picnic for her children with rugs, cushions and bunting. It was wonderfully set-up on our arrival and clearly everyone was going to have great fun… even the teddy bears!

The garden was lovely and bright and the mature conifers surrounding the garden certainly helped prevent the strong breeze from affecting the fun.

The photo shoot was very relaxed and we captured some very natural portrait images. We love creative documentary photography and our style combines this with some posed images, but mostly we want our clients to have fun and to enjoy themselves.

Some of the images from our photo shoot are below.Maidstone-Family-Photo-Shoot
