With a superb golf course and four very well dressed men, what else is there to do?
Just enough time for a few more memories to be captured…
Then it’s time to hurry inside before Elaine and her father arrive.
Time for Elaine to begin her entrance
An exchange of rings..
A kiss to seal the promises.
During the break between the ceremony and the formal pictures one of the guests adds his congratulations to the signature frame we supply as a service. This makes a wonderful keepsake when completed with a picture from the wedding day.
Greg's chance to have a ride in the superb Rolls Royce supplied by Moss Cars of Cliftonville.
Elaine and her friends ‘posed’ for some formal shots.. I had a feeling by now that the evenings reception was going to be fun.
Arrival by Rolls and return to the reception by Golf Buggy.
After the speeches and dinner its time to welcome the evening guests and to start the party with a first dance
Our event studio added to the fun of the evening
Although the props needed retrieving at the end of the night…..
And so we send our very best wishes to Mr and Mrs Wiseman on their wedding. We wish them a very happy future together and thank them for letting us share in their very special day.
If you want to know more about our services, then please check out the web site at www.paulclarkphotography.co.uk and give us a call.

Saturday saw us wake up to a superb sunny day, not a single cloud in sight. We met up with Steven and his groomsmen at Saint Marys Church in Thanet.
Time for a few photographs before the obligatory visit to the local across the road.
With the time rapidly reaching two it was time for the men to head indoors to wait for Louise.
Louise and the bridal party arrive and begin the walk to the church.
Saint Marys in Thanet is a glorious village church, which had been decorated for the occasion with ribbons on the end of the pews. The sunlight streamed through the windows to create a lovely pool of light on Steven and Louise during the ceremony.
That moment, that promise…
And finally Steve and Louise leave the church hand in hand as husband and wife for the first time. They share this very special moment with their children.
A moment together before the evening guests arrive, a moment of quiet.
And now it’s time for the first dance. Cameras surround Louise & Steve as they take to the dance floor on their own.
But it’s not long before others join in.
A glass of wine and a breath of fresh air on the balcony.
Louise's wonderfully detailed dress was supplied by Clair Anns’ in Northdown Road. Cliftonville
And so our congratulations to Louise and Steven on their very special day.

Next weekend the residents of Garlinge will be getting together for some fun. A number of events will be running over the weekend including stalls, song and dance, plus the Hussar will be hosting the annual beer festival.
An art and photography exhibition is also going to be featuring work from a wide variety of people from the local area.
So, if you are anywhere nearby next weekend, please stop by and enjoy the fun. I am going to be around on the Sunday, so if you see me wandering about, come say hello!
Printing your images
The Garlinge Festival very kindly asked me to add some of my work to the photographic exhibition. Its going to be a very informal show by the sounds of it, and to make it easy for whoever was arranging it, I have handed over some unframed prints. Now the dozen images I chose were wherever possible all local to Garlinge, you will find a couple of shots a bit further afield - for those well travelled, you may spot a distant place called Broadstairs. Half of those I handed over include local people I have had the opportunity to capture this year. So if you live in Garlinge - and have seen me for portraits, you may wish to take a look.
This digital world in which we live means that most of the time photographs we take stay in memory chips within our phones or cameras, a massive number are uploaded to social networking sites, others are simply forgotten about. We spare a passing glance at them before clicking on to the next picture. But this is the thing, when an image is printed out and held in our hands it transforms into something wonderful. They take on a life of their own, they sparkle, they capture us, they make us stop and think. I myself became mesmerised by those images in a completely different way to when I had viewed them on a monitor. So give your eyes a treat, print some of your best images, hang them on the walls of your home, put them in albums, but most importantly of all - never ever loose them.

It’s a great day here at The Dog and Duck Inn. Situated next to the gently flowing River Stour at Plucks Gutter near Canterbury. The tables are ready for the reception and the sun has decided to make an appearance.
Trevor and his Groomsmen have all arrived and are getting some fresh air while their guests make their way to their seats.
Debbie makes her entrance; all eyes turn to the back of the room. Except for Trevor who waits patiently for his future wife.
Vows are exchanged, and rings are given as a sign of their love for each other. Although that ring finger of Trevor’s was a bit of a struggle.
Time to relax, time, to meet old friends and to make some new friends too.
Debbie’s superb dress was supplied by The Crystal Fairy Company in Birchington.
Debbie and Trevor are regular visitors to the Dog and Duck Inn, and love the walk alongside the river. So a few quiet moments, before the evening guests arrived, gave us the opportunity to create some memories for them.
So our warmest congratulations to Debbie and Trevor, we wish them many years of happiness and fun times together.
