Fennes wedding photography – A Thank You!

We were delighted to receive this ‘Thank You’ from Olivia and Jonathan, whose Wedding we photographed very recently at The Fennes:-

“I would like to say the biggest thank you to you both for your hard work on our perfect wedding day. You were both great and honestly couldn’t ask for any better. You both honestly were the best people for the job and I will be recommending you to everyone and anyone.

Like I said myself and Jon couldn’t of asked for any other two people to help capture those special moments!!!”

Maison Talbooth, Dedham – wedding photography for Karen & Ian

Maison Talbooth was the chosen Venue for the Wedding of  Karen and Ian.  We arrived early as there were the final preparations to capture and many assessories to photograph of which Karen had made many herself.  The weather was hot so photographing Ian and his three Best Men happened outside as the guests arrived.  Once Karen and the girls were ready there was just enough time to take a few pictures. wedding-photographer-essex-maison-talboothImmediately before the start of the Wedding Ceremony Ian saw Karen for a moment just before all the Guests.  As there was a heavy shower as the Ceremony finished, Karen and Ian socialised with their Guests for a short time inside before it was dry enough to go outside for a couple of pictures and for the Guests to shower them in confetti.  After moving to Le Talbooth Karen and Ian went for a boat ride up the river.  Their return was greeted by their Guests and some of them then enjoyed a ride up stream as well.  Whilst Karen and Ian enjoyed some more time with their guests  we captured some natural expressions and managed a few words with Katie and Nigel, whose Wedding and family photographs we have taken in recent years. A heavy shower of rain just before the meal caused the group pictures to be delayed until after the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches were superb, with Kellie’s (the Bridesmaid) having everybody in stitches!  Once the family group pictures were taken, there was time for some fun shots and Bride and Groom portraits before everybody returned to Maison
wedding-photographer-essex-le-talbooth Guests had a time to themselves and some enjoyed swimming in the outside heated pool before the evening celebrations later.  Evening Guests arrived for a BBQ, cake cutting and dancing and our last photograph of a memorable day was of Karen and Ian’s return to the main part of the hotel where the celebrations continued into the night.

Wedding Photography for Ania and Patrick – St Katharine’s Church, Great Bardfield and Anser Gallows Farm, Hempstead

We were privileged to be be asked to photograph Ania and Patrick’s Wedding as Patrick is another local Professional Photographer!  The heat was on in more than one sense of the word!  Our day started early at The Grain House, Baythorne End, where Ania, her Parents and Bridesmaids were getting ready.  It was nice to see  Michelle, again, doing a lovely job as always.   Being an extremely hot and humid day, everybody was grateful for the coolness of the wonderful Grain House.  This accomodation is great for everything to do with a Wedding, light, spacious, and with good opportunities for pictures of the details and grain house baythorne endAnia  looked beautiful in her Wedding Dress which she had bought in Poland. We took a few pictures of her together with her Parents and Sister  and the Bridesmaids.  We left to go to St. Katharine’s Church, Great Bardfield, for the Church service.  On arrival Patrick, his Best Man and Ushers were busy with their duties, but for a short time their duties were interrupted  by  the ‘must have’ pictures of the Lamborghini with the guys!wedding-photographer-essex-st katharine's church great bardfield Before long it was time for the men and Guests to disappear inside the Church as Ania was on her way.  After the service, as the Guests mingled we took a couple of pictures of the Bridal Party.  With the Guests lining the Church path, Ania and Patrick exited the Church showered in confetti before leaving for the Wedding Reception in the Lamborghini.  Anser Gallows Farm looked a picture in the glorious sunshine and as Ania and Patrick were first to arrive we swiftly took them for a few portraits while their Guests were arriving .  A few smaller smaller family group pictures were taken during the afternoon before the Wedding Breakfast held in the lovely Barn.  Hearing the latest reports about the weather, Ania and Patrick wanted a few more pictures of the two of them and chose to do these in between courses rather than risk not getting them, which we were more than happy to do. It wasn’t long after this and during the superb Speeches that the heavens opened, we were very lucky! Later Ania and Patrick had their First Dance together followed by the party celebrations. wedding-photographer-essex-anser gallows farm A final picture of Ania and Patrick under an umbrella in the rain completed our coverage of their special day.  Well done to Patrick, being on the other side of the camera is not easy, but he did brilliantly!


Fennes Estate Wedding Photography for Sianie & Damien

The sun was shining when we arrived at Fennes for the Wedding of Sianie and Damien.  Sianie was upstairs getting ready with her Mum and sisters, Rochelle and Chenelle, who were the Bridesmaids.  Preparations were going well,  fun and laughter was in abundance and we captured some nice images.  Meanwhile, Damien was getting reading in the Cottage with their son Boyce, so we were able to take a few pictures of them as well.  Once the girls were ready we took a few pictures, before it was time for them to make their way downstairs to go outside for the Civil Ceremony. Fennes provides a beautiful setting for an outdoor Ceremony and makes for some lovely pictures. Sianie and Damien left the ceremony with their son which made some nice pictures of them leading their Guests to the Drinks a short break for Sianie and Damien, we took them for a few pictures on the Bridge and around the grounds before returning to take the requested family group A little while later we caught up on some guys, girls, and fun group pictures, before the confetti pictures.  Following the Wedding Breakfast and the Speeches, Sianie and Damien enjoyed the evening sunshine in the gardens with their Guests before a few pictures of them in the House and finishing their pictures with a marvellous With everybody returning to the Pavilion for the First Dance, the later stages of Sianie and Damien’s wonderful Wedding Day continued.
