About the day

The new Mr & Mrs Spearpoint, Caroline and Philip, were married at Holy Cross church in Canterbury followed by a wonderful reception at The Old Kent Barn in May this year.

I met Caroline and Phil for coffee and cake at my home in Minchinhampton earlier this year to hear all about plans for their Canterbury wedding. Caroline is a friend and ex work colleague of my wife Sarah. Philip, also in the same industry as my wife, is an old boy of Dean Close in Cheltenham. They both now live and work in Switzerland but wanted to get married in Caroline’s home county of Kent.

Both Caroline and Philip are PhD’s consulting to the pharmaceutical industry. I doubt I have ever been to a wedding with so many Professors, MD’s, PhD’s, MSC’s and MBA’s. Even the lovely and very talented make up artist for the day was a PhD scientist. What was notable however was how down to earth and thoroughly lovely everyone at the wedding was. Amazing families and friends having a great time and supporting Caroline and Philip on their special day.

The Old Kent Barn offered everyone a very warm welcome and looked after the bridal party and all of their guests beautifully. Amazing service, facilities and food. As a wedding photographer I have never had such an open and warm welcome from any wedding venue – truly lovely helpful people. I really hope to be able to visit The Old Kent Barn again.

The evening was a raging success with The Chip Shop Boys, from my part of the world in Cheltenham, keeping everyone on their feet during a brilliant couple of sets. If you haven’t seen these guys play yet then I can heartily recommend them.

Lovely words from Caroline:

Paul is a wonderful wedding photographer. Not only professional, and knowledgeable but also set us and our guests at ease with having our pictures taken. Especially my husband who is camera shy at best. Paul took lots of natural shots which came out beautifully and really captured the mood of the day. I would 100% recommend Paul for your wedding!!

All in all a lovely family wedding, beautiful setting and a beautiful couple – wishing Caroline & Philip a very long and happy married life together.
