Kerry and Joe got married at St Johns church in Bexley, then on to the beautiful Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. It's an absolutely stunning venue with a beautiful bright main hall for the wedding breakfast. It's boasts many fab features from the columns to the buildings exquisite architecture.
How did you guys meet?
We met through friends when we were both 15 and still at school, and quickly coupled up and haven't looked back since!
Who popped the big question & how?
Joe asked during a weekend away in Lisbon. He had managed to book a private sailing boat on the river at sunset, but kept it all from Kerry who thought they were heading out on a tourist boat tour, but on the dock they were taken aside to go on another boat. Even then she didn't realise and thought that maybe the other boat was over-subscribed and that they had lucked out! After about an hour of sailing at sunset with Lisbon as a backdrop, Joe got down on one knee to pop the big question!
What made you decide on your venue?
We had a look online at a few local venues but the Royal Naval College was the first one that we went to visit. We were blown away when we visited in person at just how beautiful the venue was, but also at how friendly the staff were and all of what they had to offer!
How long did it take you to find the perfect dress?
It was the first dress that I wanted to try on - and everything else I tried on after didn't compare. The one I tried on was a few sizes too big, so until the first proper dress fitting I was still a bit unsure about how I would look, but thankfully all turned out perfectly.
What was your favourite part of your wedding day?
So many perfect moments to pick from, from getting ready with our closest friends and family in the morning, to saying our vows, to the car journey to the venue, or our first dance. But our favourite part of the day was probably seeing all of our friends and family, especially those we hadn't seen in some time. It was so nice to see everyone enjoying themselves at the wedding which we had spent months planning!
If you could give one piece of advice to future bride & grooms, what would it be?
Enjoy yourselves - it is your day!
Finally, I would love if you could give me some feedback about the service I have provided you?
You were great and we would definitely recommend you to anybody. From running through beforehand all the shots that we would want, to arranging them all on the day without making it feel like we were taking loads of photos. You seemed to get on well with the staff at the venue and Dan our videographer, and Kerry and the girls enjoyed having you there in the morning before the big day. The photos we've seen already look fantastic and we can't wait to see the rest.
