Wedding Photography for Laura & Nathan at Spains Hall, Finchingfield

It was a beautiful day when we arrived at Laura’s Mum’s house for the final bridal preparations.  The girls were relaxed, having their final make up touches applied by the excellent Kelly Hollands, and before long it was time for all of them to put their dresses on. We took a few pictures of the girls before leaving to go to the Church.   All Saints Church, Rayne, was  where the service was held and after the service, everyone came out into warm sunshine and socialised whilst a few family pictures were taken, followed by the traditional confetti saints church rayne Spains Hall, Finchingfield, was the Reception venue, a beautiful setting, especially with today’s weather!  Laura and Nathan’s Guests enjoyed a Drinks Reception with the children enjoying themselves playing with the various garden games. We took Laura and Nathan for a few photographs  in the shade under the trees also allowing them time to themselves. Following a break, some requested group photographs were taken together with a few fun bridal party pictures.  Time just flew by and before long, it was time for the Wedding Breakfast, supplied by Le Talbooth, which was superb.  Coverage of the speeches followed before an interval before the First Dance. A short stroll around the grounds in the soft evening light with Laura and Nathan provided us with wonderful pictures before the First Dance.  Evening Guests arrived and joined in the celebrations and were entertained later on by a surprise Firework Display.  A wonderful day!  Video filming was by Your Perfect Day

Wedding Photography for Andrea & Mark – Hanbury Manor, Hertfordshire

It has been a while since we have photographed a Wedding at the wonderful Wedding Venue, Hanbury Manor, Hertfordshire, so it was nice to be back there again.  On arrival I went to see Andrea and her Bridesmaids, who were busy with bridal preparations, whilst David went to find Mark with his Ushers and Best Man. After capturing some images from both sets of preparations and photographing Guest arrivals, we moved to the impressive chapel, Poles Hall, within Hanbury Manor, for the Wedding Ceremony.  Following the Ceremony, Andrea and Mark and their Guests enjoyed a Drinks Reception and with it being a dry day were able to use the Courtyard.  With many places to choose from to take photographs, it was decided to take their requested family pictures at the back of Hanbury Manor. Informal pictures followed before a few Bride and Groom portraits around the grounds of Hanbury Manor itself. The Wedding Breakfast was held in Poles Hall, which looked a lovely sight.  After Speeches, we took a couple of evening pictures of Andrea and Mark before photographing their First manor

Wedding Testimonial – Laura & Jonathan's Wedding – Braxted Park

It is always a pleasure to receive a ‘Thank You’ and we were especially happy to receive this one from Laura’s Parents.

Dear David and Sandra

Now that Laura and Jonathan are back from honeymoon we have seen the first draft of the wedding photographs, which has prompted me to write to you – as I had been intending for the past few weeks.

As you know, we had a wonderful day (except for the weather!) and the photos are a fantastic memory of that.  From a very quick look the other day I am so impressed by what you have done and I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished product.

I would also like to thank you both for your involvement on the day.  You were so patient,helpful, unobtrusive and professional.

I really cannot praise you and thank you enough.  One does hear wedding photographers horror stories and you were both so far from that.  Thank you.

Very best wishes

Andrew and Lizwedding-photographer-essex-bride-groom-braxted park
