Wedding Photography for Vanessa & Geoff – Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon

It was a pleasure to be able to photograph Vanessa and Geoff ‘s Wedding Day.  Our day started at The Marks Tey Hotel where both Vanessa and Geoff were getting ready.  David went to take some pictures with the Boys with the Vintage American Car, whilst I went off to the Girls.  Vanessa and Geoff’s two children, Keira and Lauren, who were the Flowergirls, were enjoying getting dressed into their posh dresses, together withVanessa and the rest of the party who were getting themselves ready as well.  After a few pictures at the Hotel we left to get to Crabbs Barn, just after Geoff’s departure , making sure we were at Crabbs Barn with time to spare before the arrival of Vanessa.  Following the Civil Ceremony, everybody enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the warm sunshine, in between some group photographs.  We took Vanessa and Geoff for a short while for a pictures of them together around the lovely grounds of Crabbs barn Following the Wedding Breakfast and coverage of the Speeches and with it being such a lovely evening, Vanessa and Geoff wanted a few more pictures.  The Cornfield down the road was where we wanted to take a few images, a quick trip in our car was needed! It was well worth the effort! wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barn Sunset pictures together with evening Guest pictures and coverage of the First Dance ended our barn kelvedon

Wedding Photography for Alice & Rob – St. Martin Church, Fornham St Martin & Smeetham Hall Barn

Alice was getting ready at her Parents’ home, which is where we travelled to first of all.  After a few pictures we left to go to St Martin Church, Fornham St Martin, where Rob and his Groomsmen were for a few photographs before Alice and her Father arrived. Being a dry but humid day, storm clouds were forming, but fortunately Alice arrived and made her entrance into the Church before anything happened!  After the Church service, everybody remained in the Church waiting for the storm to pass.  As it is a lovely Church we had enough space to take some family photographs inside and before long it was time for Alice and Rob to leave the Church to go to their Wedding Reception at Smeetham Hall Barn, Bulmer. wedding-photographer-essex-st martin-fornham st martin How pleased everybody was on arrival at Smeetham Hall Barn, we were welcomed by a blue sky and not a rain cloud in sight!  Alice and Rob’s together pictures were taken in the grounds of Smeetham Hall Barn, before we caught up on some requested group hall barn Confetti shots and bridal party pictures followed in between the Drinks Reception.  Speeches were before the Wedding Breakfast and this allowed time afterwards for some early evening light photographs before ending with the First Dance and Evening hall barn

Great to see lots of couples (some already booked and some prospective) at the Parklands Open Day on Sunday.

There was a Disco band performing called Unclefunk who sounded great! I hope we will meet them at a wedding before too
