Wedding Photography for Katie & Paul – Marquee, Tendring

Our coverage of Katie and Paul’s Wedding started as Paul arrived at St Edmund King & Martyr Church at Tendring, Essex, prior to the arrival of their Guests.  We were able to take some photographs of Paul and his Groomsmen by themselves followed by some informal pictures of them greeting the Guests. wedding-photographer-essex-st edmund king & martyr-tendring The sun was shining when Katie, her Bridesmaids and Parents arrived and after taking a few pictures of them all, it was time for the Wedding service to begin.  After the service we promptly got on with the requested family group photographs before leaving the Church. wedding-photographer-essex-st edmund king & martyr-tendring On the way to the Reception at the family home we had allowed enough time to stop off at a cornfield for a few portraits of Katie & Once at the Reception, Guests had arrived and were relaxing in the wonderful garden enjoying a Drinks Reception.  As we had a few pictures to catch up on as we did not go to Katie’s house beforehand, we took these, ensuring Katie and Paul had time to mingle with everybody as well.   With a lovely setting we captured some relaxed pictures of the Wedding and before long it was time for the Wedding Breakfast, when we left everybody to continue enjoying the day.

With a blue sky and fluffy white clouds it was a glorious setting as Judith made her way into Church.  After the service and a few family photographs outside the Church, Judith and Cameron left to go to Fennes covered in confetti!  The couple and their Guests enjoyed a Drinks Reception outside, interrupted at times for various requested photographs.  For Judith and Cameron’s pictures a short walk around Fennes provided them with some wonderful relaxed Following the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches, and as Judith and Cameron (as well as us!) wanted to have some more pictures taken we used the beautiful insides of Fennes as our settings.  We had planned a few outside but the rain put paid to that! After capturing a wonderful set dance routine, we took some pictures of the evening Guests, taking our time, as we knew there was going to be a surprise later for everybody.  A superb surprise firework display ended a wonderful day for us whilst everyone else returned inside to carry on the celebrations. wedding-photographer-essex-fennes Congratulations to Cameron on his Distinction and his Appointment as a Doctor.
