Kingston Country Courtyard | Holly + Craig

Kingston Country Courtyard is a gorgeous venue situated towards the Dorset coast. I made the trip down for Holly + Craig’s wedding, on one of the hottest days of 2019, on the last weekend before the summer holidays began. Enter crazy traffic jams, and a stressed Claudia.

I needn’t have been worried. Craig, Holly and their family + friends are definitely in the top five of the most accommodating, generous, wonderful group of humans that I’ve had the pleasure to be surrounded by for the day. Craig’s Best Man was his Step-Dad Keith, which I think says an awful lot about the dynamics of their relationships with the people closest to them. Keith’s speech had me (and many others) in tears. Having been a step-parent for the best part of 5 years, and being equally sure that those two wonders would have me at their wedding days as well, it really hit home.

Craig, Holly – I’m so thankful that you were following Carlos on Instagram and came across my work. I grumble about social media but days like these truly are a wonderful justification for me to be on it. Thank you for trusting me xxx

Words from the couple: “Having Claudia document our wedding day was amazing! Her style of photography was exactly what we wanted, capturing those beautiful moments that aren’t staged or posed, just pure natural shots that captured the vibe of our day perfectly.

We got on so well with Claudia! From the very first meeting over FaceTime to meeting on our wedding morning, it felt like she was one of our friends just hanging out with us, whilst taking awesome photos! She was super chilled and relaxed and really got involved with the whole day.

When Claudia sent us the full gallery of our wedding day, we were blown away with the shots. They are just incredible and we couldn’t have wished for a more awesome set of wedding photos. Thank you Claudia you absolutely smashed it!”
