Mike & Kim- The George in Rye

The George Hotel in Rye was a venue I had wanted to visit for such a long time, it was a delight to finally be able to photograph there for Mike and Kim's big day in August 2014.


The whole day, including the getting ready photos took place at The George, which made our day very easy in terms of travelling about. I arrived in the bridal sweet to a sea of people, all busy and getting prepped for the special day ahead. Kim had invested in a very awesome dressing gown with "Mrs Potts" on the back, so the bride was very easy to spot! I utilised the bridal suite to get plenty of photos of all the getting ready.


Steph met up with Mike, his best man, and his son. The boys were all dressed up and looking smart already so Steph took them off for a wander around beautiful Rye.


The ceremony took place in The Ballroom, The Georges large function room. While the guests were taking their seats, I took the opportunity to take some photographs of Kim and her bridesmaids in the courtyard garden at the back of the hotel. This is a great little space for photographers as it has a lot of different styles of backdrop in one space.


The ceremony was great, and everyone seemed to be so excited to see Mike & Kim tie the knot. The show was stolen by Mikes son Alex however, who's ring bearing skills were second to none!


After the ceremony I took Mike and Kim off for a wander around the streets of Rye. The photo opportunities are endless in this ancient seaside town so it makes life very easy for me with regards to finding different spots to shoot.


After returning to the hotel and capturing a few group pictures in the ballroom, it was time for the speeches to begin. The speeches at this wedding were simply brilliant. Very funny, and very genuine. Everybody seemed to speak from the heart and as an outsider to this group of people it really felt like you were getting an insight into their lives.


The party atmosphere kicked off in a big way and we got some great shots of everybody dancing the night away! Such good fun!!


To be a part of Mike and Kim's big day was such a great pleasure, we wish them all the very best for the future!
