A timeless and elegant Kent Wedding at Hadlow Manor with pretty pale blue detail

Today I am thrilled to share this timeless and elegant Kent Wedding at Hadlow Manor with pretty pale blue detail.

Susan and Steve celebrated their wedding with an intimate ceremony in the company of just 14 guests in a beautifully relaxed day where the focus was entirely on the love these two share.

Images were captured by Helen England Photography.

Helen England is a Wedding obsessive.

She takes beautiful, creative photographs that faithfully capture the story of your wedding day. But more than that, she creates photographs that make people happy!

Through her work, you’ll be able to relive the romance, excitement, energy and happiness of your wedding day – not just for now but for many years to come.

She loves to capture people who love to laugh. She photographs people who are completely nuts about each other, and people having a brilliant time.

It’s her job to capture the full story of your day: the big moments as well as all the not-so-big in-between moments that matter just as much.

Her style is relaxed, natural and authentic, and captures real moments as they unfold. she embraces natural light and bright colours with a soft, gentle and romantic edge.


Beautiful Bride Susan says of the couples stunning elegant Kent wedding day…


How did you meet?

We were both divorced, so this was the second time round for both of us. We met on Match.com 11 years ago.

Tell us about the Proposal…

There wasn’t really a proposal. We moved in together 9 years ago and Steve bought me an engagement ring.

We then bought a house together a year ago and decided to get married.

We didn’t want a big Wedding, second time around, just close family, and we didn’t want to spend a fortune, although we wanted it to be tasteful.

Did you have a theme or colour palette?

Our day was at Hadlow Manor Hotel and we chose ale blue for the styling, details and decor for the day.

Tell us about any Special touches/DIY…

To give an insight into the day my invitations were designed by my Daughter.

I had personalised paddle’ signs  from Etsy for the 2 Page Boys to hold which I tied my own ribbon on.

My Granddaughter couldn’t quite walk on her own on the day, so I bought some artificial roses from Amazon to dress her baby Walker and fitted a personalised sign on it, again from Etsy. secured with ribbon.

I also purchased some personalised boxes to fill with items to amuse the children at the table, again from Etsy. (although, the wording wasn’t quite as I had asked for). I also purchased some personalised gift bags to put ‘Thank you’ gifts from the same platform.

Tell us about your favourite part of the day…

There wasn’t a best bit of the day, we enjoyed it all, we wouldn’t have done anything differently.

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

There is no need to spend a fortune on a big Wedding, sometimes smaller is better, more intimate, you can still make it as you want it and save some the money for your home.
