Brad & April

Whilst having a break during our recent coverage of Victoria and Alan’s Wedding we met a lovely couple called Brad & April from Atlanta, America.  They were in England for a few days holiday for their 10th Wedding Anniversary.  It was a pleasure to meet them and we look forward to seeing them in the future.

Wedding Photography for Victoria & Alan at The Ritz Hotel, London

Wow!  What a day!  Our first Wedding at The Ritz Hotel, London!  After deciding to let the train take the strain to London, we arrived at The Ritz earlier than intended.  Although we had previously visited The Ritz Hotel, it was another opportunity to familarise ourselves with our surroundings.  Whilst I stayed with Victoria and the girls photographing final preparations, David joined Alan and the men for theirs.  After a lovely Civil Ceremony we quickly took the everybody shot on the stairway before the Guests moved off for the drinks Reception.  Following a few family group shots taken within The Ritz, we took Victoria and Alan into Green Park for their pictures.  What a lovely time we had in the warm sunshine and we produced some really nice images.  After the Wedding Breakfast we took the opportunity to finish our photography by taking pictures at night outside The Ritz Hotel.  A truly exceptional day!

A Testimonial for Wedding Photography at The Ritz, London

OMG!!! What can we say – we absolutely LOVE the photo’s!! We watched them when we came home (from honeymoon) at 1am this morning with my mum, dad, nan and grandad and we are all blown away!
You have both captured our day perfectly and we cannot believe how it tells a complete story of the day – it is truly amazing. We are lost for words and of course now have the terrible task of having to choose them.
Also we were thinking of putting all our photo’s on the jpeg for guests to see, except the ones of us getting ready etc – Alan  is a little uncomfortable of our guests seeing him in his pants, then there is me and my rollers and of course my dad is worried about his belly (lol..) Shall we let you know tonight where to start from?
we love the photo’s so much and are so happy we found you both (this feeling is echoed by my family and only 4 people have seen them so far!!)
Thanks and see you soon

Wedding Photography for Sarah & Nicholas at Le Talbooth

Our second visit in a few weeks was to St Michael’s and All Saints Church, Copford, Essex, for the Wedding of Sarah and Woody.  After a few traditional family groups taken outside the Church, we left to go to the Reception at Le Talbooth, Dedham Essex.  As the Guests enjoyed socialising in the warm sunshine, we were able to capture the informal pictures of the day.  After the Wedding Breakfast and photographing the Speeches, we took a few more relaxed pictures of Sarah and Woody by the River Stour.  Shortly after the First Dance we left them to enjoy the party!Essex Wedding photographer


Wedding Photography for Natsuko & Paul at Gosfield Hall

Natsuko and Paul were married at the magnificent Gosfield Hall, near Braintree, Essex.  Unfortunately it was a showery day but no way did it dampen a wonderful day!  Natti left plenty of time to get ready and we had a lovely time taking her pictures in the Rococo Suite.  Dodging the showers Paul’s pictures were taken outside and we took the family groups during the Drinks Reception, when breaks in the weather allowed. We have to say that Joanna, the co-ordinator, and the staff of Gosfield Hall were very flexible during the day and evening as plans were changed several times due to the variable weather. Having been provided with meal, we are delighted to say the food at Gosfield Hall is excellent! Our day ended with some lovely photographs of Natti and Paul around the grounds of Gosfield Hall making use of a Japanese parasol which Nattie’s father had provided.

Wedding Photography for Kate & Musa at Leez Priory

Kate and Musa were married on a a fabulous day at Leez Priory, Chelmsford, Essex.  Having met Kate and Musa a few times before their Wedding Day, it was like we were old friends!  Our day started with Kate’s final preparations in the room looking out to the Tower.  A few pictures of Musa were taken around the lovely grounds as well as making good use of the atmospheric window light in the rooms.  As it was a lovely day the Ceremony was held under the Tower, followed by a drinks Reception on the lawn, in front of the Tower.  Kate and Musa were keen to use the many opportunities for pictures during the different stages of the day, which we were delighted to assist with, including a walk around the lake in the soft evening light.

Nicola & Stuart's Wedding at Braxted Park

Braxted Park wedding photographerIt was a warm and sunny day for Nicola & Stuart’s Wedding at Braxted Park, Essex.  We started their Wedding Photography with Nicola’s ‘getting ready’ pictures with her Bridesmaids and Parents.  We then made our way to Braxted Park, where we were able to take some relaxed pictures of Stuart, his Best Man and Ushers.  Nicola & Stuart held their Ceremony in the Orangery.  This was followed by the requested family group pictures together with informal pictures of the Guests enjoying themselves.  After the Wedding Breakfast we took Nicola & Stuart for some Bride and Groom portraits.  Despite the heat and by then uncomfortable shoes, Nicola persevered and helped us create some lovely pictures for them.

Wedding Photography for Eleanor & Paul at Saunton Sands, Devon

wedding photographer Saunton Sands The Wedding of Eleanor and Paul was very special to us, having known Eleanor since she was born.  Eleanor’s parents were the first professional wedding assignment for David in 1981.  Eleanor and Paul chose the Saunton Sands Hotel, Nr Braunton, North Devon.  We could not have asked for better weather together with a wonderful location.  After a beautiful Ceremony the Guests enjoyed Pimms on the Terrace whilst we took a few family pictures.  Eleanor and Paul set the timings for the day perfectly.  After an early Ceremony followed by the Wedding Breakfast there was plenty of time for a relaxed fun photo session on the beach, which we all thoroughly enjoyed.  The early evening entertainment was provided by a Jazz band, followed by dancing and the release of Chinese Lanterns after dark.  A truly memorable and emotional day!
