I first met Tom and Rachel way back in 2019 for their engagement shoot in lovely Edinburgh, with plans to see them again in 2020 for their wedding. Obviously, Covid had other ideas and eventually the two of them got married in a small ceremony with the intention to celebrate when things calmed down. Recently they were able to finally celebrate their wedding with a wonderful reception party at the stunning Crown Lodge near Wye in Kent. Upon arrival we all took ourselves out to the beautiful fields next to the venue to get some portraits, and then it was time for food, speeches and dancing! DANCING. I don’t know about anyone else but I will say it was very surreal being on a dancefloor again, surrounded by smiling faces. My body didn’t quite know how to react; it’s been quite literally years. It definitely felt like some of the ongoing tension of lockdown eased that night and we could see it in the laughter of all the guests. We all finally got to let our hair down and it was amazing!
