Wedding Photography for Kylie & Richard at The Barn Brasserie

Kylie and Richard were married at St Michael’s Church, Myland, Colchester.  Kylie surprised everyone with her stunning Marilyn Munroish dress!  It was a good match for her bubbly personality!  After the Church service we went to the Barn Brasserie, Great Tey, Essex, for the Reeption.  The areas around provided some good opportunities for pictures for the Bride and Groom, aided by a beautiful day.  As two of Kylie & Richard’s Wedding Guests were unable to attend, they kindly invited us to join their other Guests for the Wedding Breakfast.   We can highly recommend the food and service at The Barn Brasserie.


Aleisha & Stephen's Wedding at The Fennes

The Fennes Estate, Bocking, is a great place for wedding photography whatever the weather, but Aleisha and Stephen had a nice day, taking full advantage of the beautiful grounds.  The Civil Ceremony was held in the Pavillion, followed by a Drinks Reception in the lovely rooms of the House.  After a few family pictures outside the House, we took Aleisha and Stephen for a walk around the grounds for their pictures.  Aleisha & Stephen wanted to do some fun shots, which we were more than happy to do, and achieved some great images of the day.

Melissa & Neil's Wedding Photography at Layer Marney

Essex wedding photographers Layer Marney ColchesterDespite a change in the weather for Melissa & Neil’s Wedding everybody had a great day.  We met Melissa and her Bridesmaids at Charlie Browns in Colchester, where the girls were having fun in their preparations for the big day.  On arrival at Layer Marney Tower we took the guys’ pictures outside, but at the time Melissa arrived, the rain had started again.  After the Civil Ceremony the Guests were very co-operative whilst we arranged the family pictures outside the Corsellis Room before they went for their Reception drinks.  Fortunately, we were able to get outside as the rain stopped to get some essential pictures of the Tower with Melissa and Neil.  Whilst the room was being cleared for the evening we created a few relaxed pictures of the couple by the lake and in the barn and finished with some dancing pictures.


Nikon D3s review

As part of making sure our clients receive the best quality we have just taken delivery of a Nikon D3s camera. I have been using D3 for the last 3 years with over 160,000 exposures and am delighted with what it does, so why upgrade? Well Sandra has been using a Nikon D300 and that is the camera that is actually being replaced.

Is the Nikon D3s an upgrade to D3? We took the new camera to do a few test shots when we photographed a wedding at Gosfield Hall, Essex last weekend and we have been simply stunned at the quality of the files and the reduced mechanical noise, which as wedding photographers helps us being discreet.

Proof of file quality  – watch this space!


Wedding Photography for Amy & Patrick

All Saints Church, Writtle, Essex, was the setting for the Wedding of Amy & Patrick.  The Reception was held at The Reid Rooms, Margaret Roding, Dunmow, in glorious summer sunshine.  Amy & Patrick wanted a relaxed wedding and enjoyed a good amount of time mingling with their Guests.  We were able to take some lovely portraits of the couple around the courtyard and gardens of the Reid Rooms without them being away from their Guests for too long.

800 wedding pictures!!

This week we met with one of our couples from last year and they were telling us how their friends who had used other photographers, gave them 800 wedding pictures to choose from, whereas our couple had under 350!  They went on to say that of the 800, most repeated FOUR times so in fact there were really only about 200, and they were not that good!  Whovever you book do check what the big claims really mean, ask to see whole, real weddings, ask for testimonials and references if you are unsure.


Wedding of Suzanne & James

Suzanne & James were married on a very hot day at Stoke-by-Nayland Hotel, Suffolk.  After the Ceremony, whilst their Guests were relaxing and enjoying themselves, the happy couple and ourselves, went for a ride on the golf  buggys to the lake to take some photographs.  Suzanne and James then spent some time mingling with their Guests before we took a few traditional group pictures.  A superb light and pyrotechnic show for the couple’s first dance, provided by, enabled us to get some amazing atmospheric images.Wedding photos Suffolk
