Although it was chilly, the weather held out for our meeting with Gemma and Neil in Finchingfield. The sun and cloud provided us with some lovely pictures whilst we were in the village.  Gemma and Neil are getting married later in the year at Hedingham Castle.essex-wedding-photographer-finchingfield-pre-wedding

Wedding Photography for Sarah & Colin at Fennes

We arrived at The Fennes Estate, Bocking, on a dry bright day where Sarah was getting ready.  Everything was running smoothly allowing us to take our time taking some photographs of Sarah, her Parents, Bridesmaids and Pageboy.  We were able to use the lovely rooms at The Fennes, before leaving to go to St. Mary’s Church, Bocking, for the church service.  At the Church we took a few pictures of Colin, his Best Man and Ushers prior to Sarah’s arrival.  A few pictures were taken outside the Church after the service, before leaving to go to Fennes for the Reception.  Sarah, Colin and their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception whilst some family pictures were taking place.  After making sure Sarah and Colin had spent time with their Guests we went for a short walk around the grounds in the warm sunshine achieving some nice photographs of the two of them, before their Wedding Breakfast and Speeches.  Our day ended with photographs of their evening

St Francis Hospice Summer Golf Day

It was a great privilege to be invited by fellow photographer Dave Court to help photograph the St Francis Hospice Summer Golf Day. I am not sure any of the 52 golfers at Stock Brook Country Club realised it was summer due to persistent rain! Although everybody who helps raise funds for the Hospice movement is a star, it would be hard to ignore Barry Hearne whose participation was greatly appreciated. Another of my shots on the World Snooker site.

Learning how to use the Mitsubishi instant printer for event photography was extremely useful! Event-photographyOh yes, neither myself or especially Dave Court (who also provided the prints) received any payment for this – that is what charity is about after all!


Pre-Wedding Pictures for Anne & Stephen

The weather held out for a stroll around the Public Gardens in Braintree with Anne and Stephen for their pre-wedding pictures. We were spoilt for choice with many nice spots to take some relaxed pictures of the two of them.  Anne and Stephen are getting married later in the year at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon, Essex.essex-wedding-photographer-pre-wedding pictures


Pre-Wedding Pictures for Sarah & Mark

It was a pleasure to meet Sarah and Mark again as we had not seen them since 2010 when they booked us to photograph their Wedding.  Despite it being rather chilly at Walton-on-the-Naze, we did manage to take some pictures of Sarah and Mark before their Wedding at Stoke-by-Nayland Hotel later this year.Wedding-photographer-essex-pre-wedding picture-Walton-on-the-Naze
