The Archbishops Palace, Maidstone
Job: Kent Wedding Photographer
Perks of the job: Getting to shooting wedding photography at The Archbishops Palace.
As a busy Kent wedding photographer I get to shoot weddings at some amazing wedding venues and there are so many reasons why I love returning to shoot wedding photography at The Archbishops Palace in Maidstone.
This fourteenth century palatial residence was built as a home for home for travelling Canterbury archbishops and to this day I can confirm that it is also welcoming to travelling Canterbury wedding photographers as well!
One of the things I love best about The Archbishops Palace is its location. Situated on the banks of the river Medway it allows couples to arrive by either by boat or river bus. Couples that arrive in cars or carriages do so along the impressive gravelled driveway leading to the magnificent façade of the Palace. Whichever way couples make their entrance it is a romantic and fun way to start proceedings and really sets the tone for a magical day.
All Kent wedding photographers agree that Kent really is the garden of England and The Archbishops Palace gardens are evidence of this as they are spectacular. To the front of the Palace, the walled Apothecary’s Garden offers a secluded and peaceful area for photographs. The garden uses a cornucopia of herbs to form an unusual and interesting background. Well-maintained lawns and flowerbeds surround the driveway and are bordered with ornamental hedging which provides a natural green backdrop for group photography.
But don’t just take my word for it take a look at these images and see why I love shooting wedding photography at The Archbishops Palace. This venue and the lovely couples I get to work with is what Kent wedding photography is all about.
