Styled Shoot: Knockwood Bespoke Receptions (Kent, UK)

One of my absolute favorite things about getting into the wedding industry is that I have been lucky to meet lots of different people, such as the couples I photograph, hilarious wedding guests, cute little kids, and of course: other wedding suppliers!

So when Bev from Makeupology posted that she was organizing a styled shoot (in the stunning Kent, no less) I jumped at the opportunity to get onboard.

After a picturesque drive down from London to the venue with Sky of Aloha London Films, we arrived in what felt like (to me, at least!) a totally different country: the Kent countryside.

Knockwood Bespoke Receptions is a new venue on the scene, and is managed by the (literally) cutest Mom & Daughter duo you’ll ever meet. The venue itself is run from their home, and it’s set on a field with plenty of space for an outdoor reception. This place gives off tons of rustic-chic, country-style wedding vibes, and the whole setting just radiates charm.

Once Shannon stepped into the most elegant dress you’ll ever see in a grassy field, and Bev completed her final wedding makeup look, we were ready to get started. 

Almost like magic, all of the pieces came together, and each supplier’s work really started to shine. The models (Shannon + Ivan) were absolute troopers through the freezing cold and on/off rain throughout the afternoon, the flower arrangements were stunning and added life to the scenes, the invitations integrated beautifully, the dress and hair accessories very nearly stole the show, the cakes were colorful yet elegant, and of course the makeup was subtle and chic (and importantly: lasted throughout the whole shoot!).  

So here’s a look at some of my favorite moments that we captured from this shoot last month. Looking back at them selecting my favorites was lots of fun, and reminded me why I love doing what I do: the memories that I’m making, and the people that I’m meeting along the way ❤️
