I overheard a conversation at Cooling Castle Barn that Cooling Castle Barn have a wedding every single day of the year. I'm not quite sure how true that is, but you can tell that this venue knows what they are doing as it was one of the smoothest and most professional days I have been involved in. Lea and Dean got married in August on a beautiful day in Kent and it was a great day had by all.
The organisation of Cooling Castle Barn probably had a lot to do with the happy atmosphere of the day. There was no panic during the Bridal Prep as the bride only had to go from her room to the ceremony room about one hundred metres away. No need to worry about the transport of the guests between venues,as everything needed for the day was onsite. The Master of Ceremonies that had been provided helped the day tick over smoothly, whilst everyone had ample food and drink to hand.
Whilst the happy and relaxed mood is captured during the bridal prep, ceremony and speeches, Cooling Castle Barn is surrounded by some beautiful countryside. Lea and Dean had asked for some engagement photography when we had met at our first meeting, so we had already done a photo shoot together at Chiswick House and Gardens, and everyone knew what to expect. As we went to do the couple photography a bit of cloud came across the sky and gave the backdrop a really dramatic sense. Check out the shot of Lea and Dean in the field opposite Cooling Castle Barn, clouds are always more interesting than blue skies!
The day finished with a beautiful first dance from Lea and Dean as the sunset set over Kent. A beautiful day. Congratulations to Lea and Dean!
