Hotel du Vin Wedding // Carmen & Michael
Carmen and Michael’s Hotel du Vin wedding was at a venue I am very familiar with, having been fortunate enough to shoot a number of weddings there. The hotel is in the pretty town of Tunbridge Wells, and is in really lovely Grade II listed building. The ceremony was to take place in The Old Palace at Carmen’s former school, the breathtakingly beautiful St Leonards-Mayfield. Bridal preparations took place at Carmen’s parent’s house before we made our way to the ceremony venue. The beautiful old stone and soft light made it a dream to photograph in and the ceremony was lovely. Afterwards, we headed to the Hotel du Vin, and the bright and warm afternoon meant drinks were enjoyed outside on the terrace with stunning views across Calverley Park. The wedding breakfast took place in the Speyside Gelenlivet room, an elegant private dining room flooded with natural daylight. After speeches, the guests were treated to the couple’s first dance and a great band to see them through til the early hours. A great day at Carmen and Michael’s Hotel du Vin wedding, favourites are below.
