Louisa Dettmer Wedding Photography Rosie & James, The Orangery Maidstone

We arrived at the Who’d a Thought It Hotel to capture the prep of our Bride Rosie.  She looked amazing, as did her fab mum and Bridesmaids.  Preparations went very smoothly and as her car arrived, we left to catch up with Groom James at the fabulous Orangery, Maidstone.

Rosie was worried that the lack of sun would be a problem for us, but in fact the opposite is true! The flat light that day was amazing and the couple and all of their guests were able to comfortably enjoy their Gazebo ceremony without baking in the sun.

The Groom shed a tear at the first sight of his beautiful Bride, who looked absolutely stunning in her dress.

After the ceremony the couple mingled with their guests and we were able to capture some beautiful shots in the ground of The Orangery.

During the speeches, the Groom made the extra special announcement that Baby Willoughby was on his/her way and the couple were showered with warm wishes for their day and for their future together as a family.

Thank you goes not only to Rosie and James, but also to their fab and fun family who made us feel so welcome from the time we arrived, it was really appreciated.

We wish Rosie, James and Baby Willoughby a wonderful life together x
