Wedding at St Germain Church & Gaynes Park

Sam & John made a lovely couple at their wedding at St Germain Church near Blake Hall, Essex. The family portraits were taken outside the church so that only the more relaxed and fun photographs needed to be done in the gardens before the wedding breakfast at Gaynes Park, Epping, Essex. We stayed on after the First Dance in order to capture a sunset picture for Sam.


Wedding photography at The Fennes, Essex – Corrina & Paul

The Fennes Estate near Braintree, Essex is one of our favourite venues to photograph weddings at, however this was our first experience of an outdoor wedding there. Corrina & Paul’s day was just about perfect for weather and enjoying the gardens around the house with their family and friends, it was also good for some relaxed wedding photography.


Training Day at Prested Hall, Essex

Today Sandra & I helped organise and run a training day for other local photographers at Prested Hall, Feering, Essex. The training covered both a practical and lecture style education which was provided by one of the UK’s most highly qualified photographers, Kevin Wilson FBIPP FMPA from Dorset.

The day finished with a print competition in which I won an Award of Excellence in the Wedding section. Our friend Gavin Woolard, from Chelmsford was the overall winner with a great and unusual shot.

Prested Hall is a very friendly venue and is having an open day for prospective clients on Sunday 7th June – why not go along and see if it suits your wedding style?


Evening Reception at Stoke-by-Nayland, Gemma & Bryan

Gemma & Bryan married in the West Indies and then had a family reception at Stoke-by-Nayland Golf Club, Suffolk.

We took a few pictures of Gemma, Bryan and the wedding party and then lots of pictures of everybody enjoying the evening.

Whilst we are willing to travel for ‘destination’ weddings, this one was all booked by the time we were booked for this function, we’ll have to keep asking!!


Family photographs

It is now 5 years since we photographed Tina & Stewart’s wedding at Newland Hall and our second visit for family portraits. We have photographed them as a family with their first daughter Emily, this time Isobel (shown here) had arrived in the family!


Childrens photography

We visited Ferdi’s home for another portrait session today. More nice relaxed pictures.


Wedding at St Bartholomew, Wickham Bishops & Forrester Park

We get so used to travelling around Essex and beyond that a wedding that starts from virtually the bottom of our garden seems to make what time to leave home more difficult! Hayley & James were blessed with a lovley warm day. The whole day seemed to go smoothly and we took some nice relaxed pictures.

Hayley and James got a little bonus of some extra pictures as they left at midnight, when I returned to collect our daughter who was a guest!



Engagement Portrait for Sam & John

Wednesday evening found us taking a few relaxed pictures for Sam & John at Danbury Country Park. We are photographing the wedding of Sam & John in a few weeks. They are having a church ceremony followed by a reception at Gaynes Park. Another wedding we are really looking forward to photographing.
