Wedding Photography for Rebecca & Michael – St. Mary's Church, Bocking & The Fennes

Our day started at Fennes with Becky getting ready there before going to the Church.   After a few final preparation pictures upstairs, we took Becky’s Bridal portraits downstairs in the Gold and Red As Ian of Nixons Cars arrived, that was our cue to leave and head off to St. Mary’s Church, Bocking.  Capturing some pictures of Mike, his Best Man and Ushers, before many of the Guests arrived was achieved and as they made their way into Church, we waited for the arrival of Becky.  After the Church service and a few  family photographs outside the Church, everybody left to go to Fennes for the Reception. With the light being good, whilst the Guests were still arriving, we took Becky and Mike for a few pictures on the Prior to the Receiving Line, with the sun going down we quickly whizzed Becky and Mike outside to capture the sunset.  Following the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches, Becky and Mike enjoyed a little while to themselves in the Gold Room (discreetly we took a couple of pictures!), before returning to their Guests for the cutting of the Wedding cake and their First

Wedding Photography for Amanda & Stuart – Gaynes Park, Epping

It was a really cold but dry day when we arrived at Gaynes Park, Epping, for the Wedding of Amanda and Stuart. Amanda was getting ready in the Apple Loft cottage and we took a few pictures there of Amanda, her Parents and her flowergirl, Gabby.   For the Ceremony in the Orangery, despite it being cold, Amanda chose to go down the path, through the heart gate and make her entrance through the  walled garden park After the Ceremony, Amanda and Stuart wanted a few pictures outside and as the light was going, it had to be quick!  With a fabulous sunset and a sheltered area to take a few pictures, we captured some lovely park

Family Pictures

It was nice to see Clare, David, Zak, their son, again, and meet for the first time, Daisy, their daughter.   Having being the Wedding Photographers for Clare and David’s Wedding a few years ago, then taking some pictures of Zak when he was younger, Claire and David now wanted a few photographs of the four of them as well as a few of the children. family-portrait-photographer-essex


Pre-Wedding Pictures

Gemma and Richard’s pre-wedding pictures were taken in The Public Gardens, Braintree, which is a lovely setting and provides many opportunities for some pictures. Gemma and Richard are getting married soon at The Fennes Estate, Bocking.essex-wedding-photographer-pre-wedding


Wedding Photography for Nicole & Stephen at Gosfield Hall

On arrival at Gosfield Hall, after saying ‘hello’ and a few words with Nicole and the girls in the Rococco Suite, David went off to find the men as they were getting ready in another suite.   I stayed with the girls as there was lots to capture before Nicole got dressed.  Meanwhile David was taking some pictures of Stephen and his Groomsmen in the Library once they were ready  as it was unfortunately raining.  We took some lovely pictures of Nicole, her Bridesmaids and Flowergirl Daisy, before it was time for the Civil Ceremony in the Queen’s Gallery.  After the Ceremony, Nicole and Stephen made their way downstairs to the Library for the Drinks Reception. essex-wedding-photographer-gosfield hall Later some family group pictures were taken in the Grand Salon.  Gosfield Hall provides wonderful opportunities inside for photographs and as we could not go outside we made full use of the rooms, staircases and corridors for pictures of Nicole and hall
