It was a gorgeous summer’s day at Lympne Castle in Kent when David & Antonio said ‘I do’. When I say gorgeous, it was like the Mediterranean. 30+ degrees, a deep blue sky with not a cloud in sight & the English Channel shimmering in the distance.
Lymph Castle is a beautiful Grade I building in the Kent Downs dating back to the 13th century & is simply the PERFECT setting for a wedding.
David & Toni, it was an absolute joy to share your wedding day with you! We hope that the photos bring back wonderful memories for many years to come. Here are a few of our favourite images.

The ceremony took place in the impressive West Wing of the castle. David & Toni, going with the tradition of not seeing each other on the morning of their wedding, each entered the room through a door in opposite corners before meeting in the middle & walking down the aisle together.
Both of them became overcome with emotion as they said their personalised vows.
David’s best man was his brother Neil & Toni’s was his friend Paul.
Whilst David & Toni were having their photos taken, the guests enjoyed drinks in the sunshine. Sunglasses were a must!
The wedding breakfast was held in the Great hall, beautifully decorated.
Their guests were treated to an extensive buffet. Having previously worked in hospitality, the food & service was an important element of the wedding for David. Lympne Castle exceeded themselves, i don’t think I have ever seen such a tempting spread!
After the wedding breakfast were the speeches. Both best men spoke, followed by David & Toni.
Somewhat spontaneously, Paul, Toni’s best man, proposed to his partner during his speech. What a privilege to be there to capture such a moment.
The evening was still gloriously warm as other friends joined them for the evening celebrations.
David is British & Toni Italian, both flags were atop the castle in homage to their heritage.
The one & only wedding where the last photo on the couples request list is ‘a photo with you guys as you are an important part of our day!’ I handed a camera to David’s 11 year old nephew who took great delight in stepping in as photographer for this shot!
