Catherine & Russell-wedding at The High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells,Kent             March 2017

As the new wedding season gets underway, I shot a really lovely wedding at High Rocks recently for the lovely Catherine and Russel. Although they had booked me over the phone, we only met very close to the wedding as I am a recommended photographer at the venue and they booked me on the strength on my work and reviews they looked at on line.
We took a tour around the rocks and together decided on some ideas we would use on the day. It was a really cool event and we visited the Rocks three times overall to get the shots in the right light, ending in the spectacular night shots. I have only posted a couple here as I am currently working through the edit...
a lovely set of pics I think and one of my favourites is the veil blowing into Dad's face when Catherine exited the bridal car..very funny at the time. Here are just a few from the edit I like..

 

 

I have just put this really cool corporate brochure together and I am really quite pleased with it. There are some shoots I have done in Oslo & Athens as well as the UK. I want to target a bit more corporate work which I really enjoy as often they are high profile assignments abroad.

I just spent the most fabulous day yesterday at the amazing HEVER CASTLE as an invited wedding supplier to exhibit to around 80 lovely wedding couples. Even the dull sad weather didn't dampen anyone's enthusiasm to come and explore the beautiful Hever Castle and Grounds and to meet all the trusted wedding suppliers who regularly work at Hever. I was very fortunate to be set up very close to a wonderful wedding cake maker and I guess you can guess the rest!

 

A great day which led to some very promising leads which I am just following up.

 

Thank you Hever Castle for this great opportunity to meet some more of your esteemed customers and hope this leads to some more fab bookings at the best wedding venue in the UK...K

                 Thank you so much V & J that is so appreciated, you stole my heart...best wishes.. Kenny

      

Thank you so much Kenny

From the very beginning Kenny brought a fantastic enthusiasm & energy, it was very obvious Kenny loves & cares about photography. This immediately endeared us to Kenny & made our decision to secure Kenny’s services for our wedding very easy. Kenny was happy to use his experience to suggest styles, plus listen to our ideas which was important to us. Kenny even took the time to visit the venue with us to get an understanding of the venue & where would work best for the pictures.

On the day Kenny was fantastic, he worked extremely hard to ensure every request we had made was fulfilled, & at the same time Kenny’s friendliness & attention to details remained constant throughout. Kenny was extremely professional & captured so many incredible images to remind us how amazing our wedding day was.

We received our disc of pictures far quicker than we had hoped & are so delighted with them, we have an amazing portfolio of photos from the day which we struggled to choose from for the prints.

Choosing a photographer for such an important day such as your wedding is a daunting prospect as you want everything to be perfect as it can be, your photos will help create & maintain your memories to cherish for years to come. Therefore I have no reservations whatsoever recommending Kenny & sincerely thank him

Love Verity & Jarrod

A lovely wedding I shot late last year of Tom & Emma's wedding at Hever Castle. A really grand couple

and we had lots of fun around the grounds to produce some priceless images. Thank you Tom & Emma

for asking me to capture your very special day.

A very special thanks to my dear friends Carol & Paul from  'CutAboveProductions' video services.

I thankfully found out about Kenny Hickey through a recommended supplier list from Hever Castle when I was planning my wedding last year.  The quality of his photographs speaks for themselves.  They are absolutely stunning—a result of his knowledge and experience in the industry and at Hever Castle.  Kenny knows Hever Castle incredibly well; he understands the best locations and angles to best capture the bride, groom, guests and the incredible setting that is Hever.  He makes an already beautiful setting dynamic by paying attention to all of the details.  What is more, Kenny is a sincere pleasure to work with, from beginning to end.  He values his customers, and makes the process seamless.  My husband and I knew we found an excellent photographer when we chose Kenny for our wedding, but he far exceeded our expectations.  Indeed, Kenny is certainly one of the reasons why we look back on our experience at Hever with such fond memories.  He does more than document an event.  Kenny really captures the moment—the emotion, detail and lasting memories that you will remember and cherish forever.  After working with Kenny, and seeing the pictures he produced, my husband and I agree that Kenny is the best photographer that we have ever seen.  We count ourselves lucky that he photographed our wedding

This is a quite a belated review but I didn't want to miss the opportunity of telling people about the magical wedding experience we had at this very special, beautiful place. 

We had our wedding on August 20th, and the whole day was perfect, from start to finish. Although my inspiration for having my wedding at Hever Castle was my admiration and affinity with Anne Boleyn, we couldn't have had a better location for our wedding. It was held in the Astor Wing, which was stunning. Words fall short of describing how atmospheric and beautiful it was. I simply couldn't have asked for more. 

The staff were wonderful to, nothing was to much trouble. Suzie Latter, immediately put as at ease and so helpful with planning the day. Christopher, who took over from Suzie when she was unable to attend work, was incredibly helpful, polite and instrumental to the smooth running of our day. We can't thank him enough. Such a lovey person. In fact, all the staff were. So kind and professional. 
Especially the chef, who accommodated us in every way and helped create our perfect wedding menu. In all honesty, it was one of the best meals I've ever had. And all my guests thought so too. 
We live in the North of England, and this obviously made things a little trickier to plan, but Hever Castle staff were always in contact with us, double checking and triple checking everything, to make sure everything was what we wanted and was all we dreamed. Nothing was to much trouble. 
I would also strongly recommend the photography services of Kenny Hickey and his Videographer partner Carol Navis. I have received countless compliments on my wedding photos and video. They are amazing and true professionals. The end results are simply stunning. 

In my opinion, this is the ultimate wedding location. It has everything. The grounds are out of this world, like an oasis. The castle speaks for itself, so rich in history, and so very beautiful. And the Astor wing is incomparable to anything we've seen before. I emplore anyone considering having the special day at Hever Castle to do so. I give you my word you will have the most incredible day. And one you will never forget. 
Thank you so much Hever.

Some lovely feedback from last Saturdays wedding at Hever Castle

Hi Kenny

Honeymoon is amazing so far! We've just had a couple of days in Copenhagen and are now steaming north on the train to a cottage in the north where we are staying for 6nights.
The pictures you sent through are absolutely amazing - we adore them! We have so many favourites it's hard to mention, but we especially loved the castle one, the one taken sort of through the fountain, and the black and White one on the dance floor. Oh and the one with both our families in. But in reality they're all spectacular!
Saturday couldn't have gone better and we can't put in to words how grateful we are to you and Kirsty and your amazing hard work. Just incredible. As I'm sure most newlyweds say, the day is a bit of a blur to us but your beautiful photos allow is up relive it vividly
More than happy for the pics to be on your website/social media.
Lots of love,
Roz and Stuart xxx

Dear Kenny,
We wanted to thank you for so perfectly capturing the excitement and happiness of our wedding day at Hever Castle in the photos you took that day. The pictures are simply stunning. We are also so pleased we asked to you to take photos throughout most of the day since it has been terrific to have these beautiful memories from the whole event. You had told us you would be ever present while very discreet and that was definitely the case. So many of our guests have commented on how professional and discreet you were, not interfering with the service or the reception in any way, yet there to capture every precious moment. We are very happy to recommend you to anyone who asks. Thank you again.
 
Anna & Nigel

Hi Kenny,

I just wanted to say again a very big thank for doing our wedding photos. I know we have not seen them yet, and only seen the ones on your facebook page which are amazing, so very excited for when we do. I just wanted to pass on some of the comments from my guests. They have all said to me how nice you and your assistant were on the day. How professional you both were and how relaxed you made it. They said it was so nice to have photos taken without being bossed around and that basically they you were the best photographer they had seen. I must say I agree with them myself because you both made Brian and myself feel very relaxed in everyway.

Many Thanks

Hi Kenny,

Here is a testimonial from Katrina and I:

“Kenny did an absolutely outstanding job as our wedding photographer. He made both of us feel at ease from the start, and our guests absolutely adored him. The quality of his photos were second to none and we were especially impressed with his efforts to quickly edit a selection of photos for us to take away on our honeymoon. We could highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer to capture their special day.”

Thanks again for all your efforts!

Matt & Katrina

Great news..I have just received notification that I have been selected as a shortlisted finalist for Kent Wedding Photographer of the Year at the prestigeous Kent Wedding Awards to be held at a black tie awards ceremony in Maidstone. This is a very competitive award with so many great photographers chasing the title. I will be attending the dinner knowing I will be surrounded by oodles of talent and will be keeping my fingers crossed for a triumphant outcome!

Jamie & Chris at Mountains Country House

 

Sneak preview from Jamie & Chris's wedding at Mountains Country House 4/8/14

It was a great wedding yesterday with Jamie & Chris getting married at Mountains Country House where I used to teach. The boys all had their Super Heroes vest which they donned near the end of the day for a few pics. Mountains is a splendid setting for a wedding with a really fabulous Marquee set up in the grounds ready for the wedding breakfast. The ceremony was shot in the open air under a gazebo and the weather was really kind to us. There was even a Marryokee which really was a lot of crazy fun...congrats to the young couple who ran it ..they did a great job..

Great day,  great couple, great wedding...job done.

Jamie & Chris's initial feedback

 

Me and Jamie had a perfect day and we cannot wait to see all the pictures. You made us feel so relaxed during the photo shoots and we really enjoyed your company, which made the photos fun!

Thanks again mate

A sneak preview from Vereity & Jarrods super wedding at Dale Hill Golf Course

A fun packed day with Verity & Jarrod with Verity showing us all how to er drive a golf buggy. I wonder if Jarrod has recovered yet! It was a great wedding and everything went to plan. We did a previous recce of the golf course prior the wedding so had a good idea of the shots we would get. Well done to Verity & Jarrod, a really lovely couple and really enjoyed being a big part in their special day together.

 

Lovely feedback from Verity & Jarrod

Here are a few sample pics from the lovely Eloise and Michaels recent wedding. The wedding itself was at the Salvation Army Church in Maidstone and the reception was held at the Turkey Mill in Kent. We had to dodge a few showers but the day itself was beautiful and Eloise and Michael looked really grand in their fab wedding outfits...hope you like the pics...

 

Some lovely initial feedback just received from Eloise & Michael

Hi Kenny,

We have just landed from our honeymoon and what a thing to land to!
The photos are simply stunning. Even though we have only seen your first sneak preview it has really captured the day perfectly already.
I am in love with all of the shots we have seen - thank you so much for your hard work on the day and after (it must take ages!).
We cannot wait to see more!

Thank you!
Eloise and Michael

A recent review posted on Hitched by Susie Latter who worked as the key wedding organiser at Hever Castle for several years

Heading: Amazing photography, professional & approachable

Description: I'm a wedding organiser and worked for Hever Castle for 3 years, this is where I first met Kenny. A very prestigious venue, only recommends the best. Throughout this time I continuously recommended Kenny to my brides, many of whom booked him as their wedding photographer. He is by far a great photographer. Very approachable, kind hearted, nothing is too much trouble. Kenny understands that every brides dream is their wedding day and will go above and beyond to make sure every moment is captured. Now the time has come for me to get married, I booked Kenny straight away. I know, without a shadow of a doubt that my wedding photography will be 100% to my satisfaction. (I will follow with a post wedding review in due course) 

Trade Winds assignment in Greece

Really nice news today. My client from Trade Winds from the Marine Risk Forum was so impressed with the coverage and service I supplied at the  Fishmongers Hall forum last week that they have asked me to cover a very important conference in Athens in two weeks time. I absolutely adore Greece and have many friends there from previous exploits and it will be lovely setting foot in this wonderful country again :o)

Emma & Tom's wedding

Another very successful meeting tonight with the very lovely Emma and her dear Mum tonight who have booked me for Emma & Tom's wedding at Hever Castle next May. Really looking forward to meeting Tom in the near future...thank you both for seeing me tonight and look forward to your big day at the beautiful Hever Castle.

Nicola & Andrew's wedding

I just recently met a really lovely couple Nicola & Andrew who are getting married in Sandhurst followed by a fabulous reception in St Ronans School in Hawkhurst in July 2015. I am so happy they have confirmed they are booking my services...they are so really very nice... :o)

An early morning location shoot at Hever Castle

Hever Castle today 10 April 2014

I spent about 3 hours in the very early morning light shooting new arty shots of Hever Castle grounds and the Loggia. I even rowed a heavy boat all the way up the lake getting some really great shots and had two large hissing swans for close company...they were really great models and really helpful :o). These shots are really cool and I will use them for all my clients who get married there so they all have plenty of really great shots of the Castle and grounds. I will post them here once I have post produced them...Kenny

A really nice recent review posted by Paul Meyer owner of Photoshoot studio Hire in Southborough

Kenny has used my studio on a number of occasions and is always the complete professional. He has been a professional photographer for many years and that is very obvious when you talk to him. With a pleasant and helpful attitude he always gets the results that his clients demand. it's a pleasure to have Kenny in the studio and he will look after your needs exceptionally well.

Testimonial for Kenny Hickey Photography: Hever Castle 4th Feb 2012

 

Photography was always one of our main priorities when planning our wedding as we wanted to ensure we had something that would evoke memories of just how special our big day was and capture the atmosphere of our spectacular wedding venue. We spent a long time looking round at a number of different photographers and eventually settled on Kenny Hickey Photography as we really liked the style and creativity of Kenny's portfolio. He also came highly recommended by our venue and knew the setting well. Our initial meeting with Kenny re-enforced our decision as he was so friendly and had lots of ideas but was also keen to listen to what was important to us. To top it all off, he had back-up plans for every kind of disaster we could think of that might affect our wedding day which meant we had one less thing to worry about!

On the day, Kenny and his assistant were extremely professional and made sure we got all the photographs that were really important to us, even though this meant standing out in the freezing cold for a fair amount of time! They were so personable and unobtrusive that it was more like having two extra guests at the wedding than two photographers and several of our guests commented on how friendly they were. They even agreed to stay on for an extra hour at our evening reception despite the fact that it had started to snow heavily outside and we really appreciated their commitment to making sure our wedding day photography was all that we hoped.

When we received our photographs from Kenny we could not have been happier with our decision. The photographs were beyond our expectations and a number of people who have seen them, including friends of friends who don't even know us, have commented that they are the best wedding photogrphs they have ever seen!  We also got some great photographs that Kenny's assistant had taken from different angles which really added another dimension to our memories of the day. All in all, our experience of wedding photography could not have been better and we would not hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend Kenny Hickey Photography to anyone!
