Heather & Dan's Wedding Photography at Down Hall, Hatfield Heath

A beautifully warm sunny day heralded the start of our Wedding Photography for Heather and Dan.  Heather’s final preparations were at the stunning Down Hall, so we started there first of all, taking pictures of Heather, her Parents and the Bridesmaids before leaving for St. Andrew’s Church, Sandon.  On arrival at the Church, Dan and his Ushers were greeting the Guests and in between we took their pictures.  Heather arrived shortly after and the Wedding Ceremony began.  After the Church service and Heather and Dan had chatted to their Guests, we returned to Down Hall, where we did the majority of the family pictures and Bride and Groom portraits.  Following the Wedding Breakfast and coverage of the Speeches, the soft evening light provided us the opportunity to take a few more relaxed pictures in the grounds of Down Hall.St Andrew's Church, Sandon

Wedding Photography for Karen & Tom at Gaynes Park, Epping

Karen and Tom chose the lovely Gaynes Park, Epping, for their Wedding Ceremony and Reception.  After saying”hello'” to Karen and her Bridesmaids, who were getting ready in the Apple Loft Cottage, David left to go and meet Tom and the men at ‘The Merry Fiddlers”, before they arrived at Gaynes Park ,whilst  I remained with the girls, getting pictures of their final preparations.  Following the Ceremony which was held in The Orangery, Karen and Tom mingled with their Guests in the Walled Garden in the sunshine, whilst we captured some reportage images.  Bridal Party photographs and family group pictures were taken in the Walled Garden together with Confetti pictures during this time.  After the Wedding Breakfast in the Mill Barn and when it was not as warm, we took Karen and Tom for a short walk around Gaynes Park for their romantic pictures and were blessed with some evening sunshine giving Karen and Tom some lovely photographs.  Video was provided by Jag, www.videofilming.org.Wedding Photo - Gaynes Park

Wedding Photography for Vicki & Sean at Crabbs Barn

For the start of Vicki and Sean’s Wedding we met Vicki and her Bridesmaids in the beautiful Guild Room at The White Hart Hotel, Coggeshall, to take some pictures of them all prior us leaving for Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon.  Whilst the Bridesmaids were travelling in the VW Lovebus, we photographed the guys outside Crabbs Barn with ‘Del Boy Reliant Robin’.  After the Ceremony Vicki and Sean took a short ride in the Lovebus whilst their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception.  After a few classic family group photographs, we spent a short time with Vicki and Sean (and Nathan of www.bamfordfilms.com, who was excellent) creating some relaxed images of themselves.  Following the BBQ by JLS Catering, which was superb, the laughter and enjoyment continued with us capturing some wonderful images, ending with a sunset picture soon after the First Dance.

Wedding 'Thank You'

David and I were delighted to receive a ‘thank you’ from Sandra and Drew, whose Wedding we photographed recently at The Fennes, Bocking:-

“We just wanted to say a big Thank You for the beautiful photos you took of our wedding.  You both made everyone feel at ease and we are absolutely delighted with the results.  The only problem is you have made it very difficut for us to choose the best photos for the Storybook, as there are so many great shots.  Thanks again”.


Wedding Photography for Kelly & Daniel at Stock Brook Manor, Billericay

The Wedding of Kelly and Dan had many links to previous Weddings within their families and it was nice to meet a number of familiar faces again. Despite a heavy downpour as we arrived at Kelly’s family home, it turned out to be a hot and sunny day.  The Wedding Ceremony was held at English Martyrs Church, Danbury, where a few pictures were taken, then we moved on the Reception at Stock Brook Country Club, Billericay.  The back lawn provided the setting for the main family group shots, with some relaxed pictures of Kelly and Dan, by the path beside the Golf Course.  After the Wedding Breakfast, Kelly and Dan were lucky to get a fabulous sunset across the lake.

Wedding Photography for Lisa & Simon at The Stoke-by-Nayland Hotel, Leavenheath

Stoke-by-Nayland Hotel, Golf and Spa, was the choice of Lisa and Simon for their Wedding.  After taking the getting ready shots of Lisa and the arrival pictures of Simon, the Wedding Ceremony took place in the Gainsborough Room.  During the Ceremony a heavy shower occurred, and continued for a little while, which caused some alteration to the plan for photography afterwards.  Lisa and Simon therefore enjoyed mingling with their Guests indoors, in between family group shots taking place.  Surface water did not prevent us from going down to the Lake, and we must thank the staff of Stoke-by-Nayland for assisting us so well, making sure Lisa’s dress stayed clean and dry!  After the Wedding Breakfast early evening sun provided some beautiful relaxed pictures of Lisa and Simon, amongst the trees, finishing up with a beautiful sunset sky.Wedding Photo - Stoke by Nayland

Wedding Photography for Janna & Stephen at Down Hall, Hatfield Heath

Janna and Stephen chose the impressive Down Hall, Hatfield Heath, for their Wedding.  Heavy rain caused us to take pictures indoors or under cover but this did not cause a problem due to our experience and the interior of a great venue.  Meeting Janna, Stephen, Thomas and Jack a few weeks previously, paid dividends on the day, gaining the boys confidence, therefore enabling us to get some wonderful pictures. Everybody was very relaxed and enjoying themselves and it was lovely to hear Janna say she hardly noticed it was raining as she was having such a fun day!  As a couple of Guests were unable to make the Wedding, Janna and Stephen invited us to join them for the Wedding Breakfast, which was very kind of them.Wedding Photo - Down Hall, Hatfield Heath
