Kent Wedding Photographers - 2011 Review - Dover Design Photography

What a year 2011 has been. I thought I would try and post a few things that Dover Design have been up to this year. This is just a snapshot of this year's activity so I am sorry if I have not included your pictures :-) We started the year with an amazing Bridal fashion photo-shoot at Court Stairs Manor in Pegwell.

2011 also saw the launch of Profilepix - A collaboration with Make-up by Gem offering makeovers and photoshoots. We can arrange profile picture parties or you can have your own make over and fashion photoshoot.

As I said at the beginning, this really just scratches the surface of the year's work. We haven't been able to feature all of the weddings or photoshoots - we also have a huge amount of commercial work which we are unable to publish.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone we have worked with this year, have a great Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Kind Regards

Alan, Thomas, Hazel and Hannah.

April 2011 | Kent Wedding Photographers | Eastwell Manor | Cooling Castle, Rochester

I am excited that the wedding season is just around the corner, we are currently very busy scheduling pre-wedding sessions. It all starts in April for us with our first wedding of the year at the stunning Eastwell Manor - from a photographers perspective it really doesn't get much better than Eastwell Manor. From the sumptuous style of Eastwell Manor our next date is at Cooling Castle Barn, Rochester. Cooling Castle is one of, if not the busiest Wedding venue in the area. We have worked there before and it is a real pleasure to be back there again.

We then have a small and very personal wedding starting at Dover Discovery Centre and moving onto Cullens Yard for the reception. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to working so locally and also with many of the local suppliers who are all good friends.

To round off April we have our first visit to Winters Barn, Canterbury. I visited the venue this week and it is stunning - originally dating from 1690 the barns are steeped in history but have been lovingly transformed to produce a magical wedding venue.

A busy month ahead as you can see but strangely we still have a few dates available in May. So if you know anyone looking for talented, friendly wedding photographers tell them to give me a call.
