Tunbridge Wells Girls’ Grammar School Prom 2016:
We were contacted earlier this year by Rebecca from Tunbridge Wells Girl’s Grammar School (TWGGS) Prom Committee to photograph their Year 6 Leaver’s Prom at the lovely Hadlow Manor Hotel, in Kent. We really enjoy photographing proms so we jumped at the chance to photograph at this lovely location.
Hadlow Manor Hotel is a Grade 2 Listed Georgian manor house with a modern function room where the prom was being held. It also has wonderful gardens.
Approximately 170 pupils and staff from Tunbridge Wells Girls’ Grammar School were anticipated for the evening’s event. Unfortunately, the weather forecast was not particularly kind; rain was expected to fall throughout the day and evening. However, as it turned out, the rain managed to hold off for the most part to allow us to capture the guests arrival in their glamorous prom dresses and evening suits. Our approach on the evening was straightforward, we captured students (and staff) as they arrived at Hadlow Manor Hotel and photographed them either in friendship groups, couples or individual shots (whatever they requested) and before moving onto reportage photography as the evening progressed.
Hadlow Manor Hotel is a great venue to hold a prom, event or wedding, and we would especially like to give a shout-out to the hotel staff who made us feel very welcome and for which nothing was any trouble.
It was a pleasure to be part of the TWGGS 2016 Prom and we very much hope to be a part of their event next year.
Here are a selection of photographs from the evening…
