St Margaret’s Church, Underriver, Kent Wedding Photography – Polly & Jon

March 11, 2013 | Weddings

I met Polly and Jon shortly before they moved abroad and they were just a joy to meet. Based on our meeting they recommended me to Sarah and Andy, whose wedding you may remember over here. Two marquee weddings with very different feels! Polly described the wedding to me at the time as a "haunted forest banquet" (well, I'm sure it wasn't those words exactly, but...) and I was intrigued. Their ceremony was held in a lovely Kent village church, St Margaret's, just down the road from her parents house and then the reception was a marquee in their garden. After a walk up a lit pathway, you arrived in the marquee, which had four rooms, the bar area was just stunning, with bare trees sprouting through the floor, lit from below and housing the guests names on hanging tags. Each table was named after a film with a number in the title. Very clever! The second room was where the wedding breakfast took place, lined with lights and tables covered in wild flowers, by Florist in the Florist. The third room (which I hadn't even realised was there! Was revealed in the evening for the dancing - white and pink lanterns hung from the ceiling and it was like a magical solar system. To continue the film theme, during the signing of the register at the church, one of the couples friends played a number of film themes on the keyboard, when their guests sat down for the wedding breakfast there was a quiz to name the films the songs were from. I loved this idea - mainly because I was doing the quiz myself in my head and I reckon I'd have won...! As you can see from the number of shoe photos included in this post, Polly chose some incredibly high, sparkly, Jimmy Choo's, I loved the little bit of modern, sexy styling, under her beautiful, classic dress. Speaking of looking gorgeous, Kylie McMichael provided her hair and make-up skills for the big day and she was a joy! Polly and Jon's story is just lovely - I love hearing how people meet. Polly and Jon's parents were friends, so, the two knew each other as children and went in holiday together (I was sent a link to their wedding site and thought it was just adorable that they had photos of themselves together as children), they met up together again as adults and, well, the rest is history...   Sevenoaks Kent Wedding Photography_079 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_080 Sevenoaks Kent Wedding PhotographyPonsbourne Park Wedding Photography_081 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_082 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_083 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_084 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_086 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_088 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_090Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_089 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_091 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_092 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_093 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_094 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_096Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_098Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_100 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_097 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_101Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_103 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_102 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_105 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_106 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_107 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_108 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_110 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_112Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_111 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_114 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_115 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_116Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_119 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_117 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_120 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_121  Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_123Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_122 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_124 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_125Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_129 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_126 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_127 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_128 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_130 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_131 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_133 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_134 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_135Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_136Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_132 Sevenoaks Kent Wedding PhotographyPonsbourne Park Wedding Photography_138Sevenoaks Kent Wedding Photography Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_139Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_142 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_140 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_141Sevenoaks Kent Wedding Photography Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_145 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_146Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_148 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_149Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_150 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_151 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_152Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_147 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_153 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_154Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_155 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_158Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_163 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_159Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_161 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_160 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_162 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_165 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_169 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_170Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_167 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_171 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_172 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_173 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_174Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_178 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_175 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_176 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_177 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_180 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_181Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_183 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_182 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_184 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_185Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_187 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_186 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_189Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_188 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_190 Ponsbourne Park Wedding Photography_191 SaveSave
