Wedding Photography at Mount Ephraim Gardens

Mount Ephraim Gardens, situated near Faversham and Canterbury, is one of my favourite wedding venues in Kent. As a wedding photographer, I always feel particularly inspired when I shoot there. The hallway, where indoor ceremonies are conducted, sports a magnificent staircase (great for group shots in monsoon season) and is always well-lit due to the giant skylight in the roof. The beautiful stone portico at the front of the building is another great location for group shots, and this is before even venturing into the gardens.

The privately-owned estate is comprised of some 800 acres, and in the immediate vicinity of the house are 10 acres of Edwardian terraced gardens, which provide stunning backdrops for wedding photos. These feature extensively in the attached wedding galleries. On fine days, ceremonies can be conducted outdoors.

Victoria and Mark had a church wedding in Whitstable followed by their reception at Mount Ephraim. The bride and groom portrait session took place within the house and in the terraced gardens, followed by group shots under the portico. The wedding breakfast was served in a marquee on the front lawn. Fleur and Aatif had a civil ceremony, followed by a blessing by an Imam, in the main hallway. Group shots were taken on the main staircase. Emily and Che also had their ceremony in the main hallway, followed by group shots under the portico and a portrait session in the gardens, followed by their reception at Chilham Village Hall. Carrie and Adrian had their ceremony outside followed by group shots and a portrait session in the gardens and then their reception in Whitstable (with the finest fish and chips I tasted in 2009!) As you can see, arrangements at Mount Ephraim Gardens are very flexible.

Mount Ephraim Gardens will shortly be updating their website with some of my images - be sure to check it out!
