Today, we are delighted to share the beautiful wedding of Charlotte and Sean, captured by www.markpugh.com.
THE DAY OF THEIR WEDDING
Mark was one of the first to arrive at The Old Kent Barn, and it allowed him lots of time to explore the extensive grounds before capturing bride Charlotte and her friends in the on-site bridal preparation room.
Mark said: "It's always nice when bridal preparations, ceremony and reception all happen at the same venue - it gives everyone more time to have fun as once they arrive on site, they don't have to travel anywhere else."
In what seemed like a matter of mere moments, the time had come for the wedding ceremony. Charlotte took the short walk out of the main building to the outdoor pavilion for her al fresco wedding. Sean was waiting nervously for her arrival surrounded by their friends and family. With the ceremony complete, there was time for drinks, canapés and an hilarious series of formal... and not so formal photographs in the beautifully maintained gardens.
With the photographic formalities complete, everyone adjourned to the grand hall where the wedding breakfast, speeches and cake were all waiting for them.
As the evening guests arrived, StoX provided live dance music for the rammed grand hall. But there was one further surprise: Charlotte's sister and some of their friends had rehearsed a medley of songs with StoX and performed them in front of the assembled crowd.
Charlotte and Sean are a lovely couple, and it was wonderful for to have been able to spend time again in their company at such a special and unique venue.
Mark Pugh and Team wish them every happiness for the future, and we hope you enjoy viewing 150 plus firstLOOK wedding image previews.
Their final wedding photography collection will contain over 350 plus images, and we will share additional image previews soon.
As always, enjoy.

ABOUT THE OLD KENT BARN
The Old Kent Barn is a passionate family business striving to offer the very best facilities and a first class personal service.
Originally a three bedroom Bed & Breakfast run by Hilary and Roger Simmons the venue was transformed into an events and wedding venue when their daughter Claire Weedon and their son-in-law Will Weedon joined in 2006.
In fact it was Claire and Will’s wedding reception at the Barn in 2005 that gave the four family members the idea to put all their talents together and run a wedding venue.
They pride themselves on the quality and warmth of the service they offer, and they personally work tirelessly with their staff to ensure your wedding is perfect in every way for you, your family and your guests.
Set in an idyllic rural location, there are two barns on site; a purpose-built 110ft oak framed barn for indoor weddings and receptions and the original 'Old' barn for accommodation which was built over 225 years ago. The barns are set in manicured landscaped grounds and surrounded by picturesque Kent countryside making it the perfect backdrop.
The 2 ½ acre gardens, with formal parterres, are planted with romantic roses, sweeping curved hedges and an informal lake garden with a lit fountain all set against a backdrop of mature trees. Dedicated gardeners are here on a daily basis.
The paved seating area for outdoor ceremonies has a rose and wisteria covered aisle along with a canopy to shelter up to 150 guests. Both indoor and outdoor ceremony areas have a high quality sound system so all your guests can hear the ceremony clearly.
Atmospheric up-lights and fairy lights have been placed throughout the grounds, so guests can enjoy their surroundings in the evening.
