The Knowle Country House wedding venue is a privately owned home and country restaurant in the village of Higham, Kent. It is set in 14 acres and comprisese of a traditional English walled garden and orchards to the rear. It was also chosen as the location for the Kent wedding of Kirsti and Ben.
Kirsti & Ben were the winner’s of our Your Kent Wedding 2015 competition, run in conjunction with Your Kent Wedding magazine. Following their announcement as the winners of the competition, we arranged to meet them at their home to listen to their wedding day plans. We were excited to find out that their wedding was to be held at the beautiful The Knowle Country House in Higham. Kirsti asked for coverage from the bridal preparations through to the evening’s speeches. We were more than happy to work to her plans.
The Knowle Country House
Firstly, we made a pre-wedding visit to The Knowle prior to their wedding day. The grounds were in immaculate condition with a beautifully manicured lawn and borders. The main bridal preparations were away from The Knowle, with the bridal party simply opting to get dressed at the venue. The wedding ceremony was planned for outside in the gazebo with speeches to follow on the terrace. The wedding breakfast was to be held in the main dining room.
The Wedding Day
On the wedding day, Kirsti arrived at The Knowle in a vintage Morris Minor Convertible car and was greeted by her bridesmaids. We captured some wonderful pre-wedding images of Kirsti and her friends arriving. We then went to meet-up with Ben and his family before the ceremony started.
The wedding ceremony was a wonderful occasion, their dog was included too! Their grandfather giving a blessing at the end of the ceremony, and doves were released before Kirsti and Ben left for a drive in their vintage car.
On their arrival back at The Knowle, we managed to capture all of the wedding group formal shots before it started to rain. The speeches had to be done in the function room. This did not affect everyone’s enjoyment, and Ben had even composed a song for Kirsti which he sang to her in front of family and friends whilst playing the guitar!
After the wedding breakfast we captured documentary style photos of guests before departing to allow Kirsti and Ben to enjoy the rest of the evening with their family.
Here are some of our photographs from their wedding day:
