Wedding Photography Kelvedon, Essex for Sophie & Jamie

Wedding Photography Kelvedon –  Sophie and Jamie’s Church Wedding was at St Mary the Virgin Church, Kelvedon and then back to Sophie’s Parents’ home nearby.  Our day started early afternoon at Sophie’s Parents’ home where preparations were taking place.  Everything was running smoothly and after capturing the getting ready pictures together with all the accessories it was time for a few family pictures.  We left soon after to go to the Church where we met Jamie and his Groomsmen.  With the rain holding off for the moment we managed to take their pictures outside.  Keeping our fingers crossed Sophie would arrive in the dry (it worked!), it wasn’t long before the Church service began.  Being a late afternoon Wedding in December and with the light rapidly going, when Sophie and Jamie came out of the Church, we didn’t delay getting back to the Reception.  Once back at Sophie’s Parents’ house, Sophie and Jamie escaped inside while the Wedding Guests were ushered into the Marquee in the grounds.  By this time the heavens had opened!  Leaving Sophie and Jamie for some time alone,  a short time later we joined them to take some pictures of them together.  A surprise firework display happened at the same time in the grounds which made for some good reaction pictures.  Once everybody had arrived, Sophie and Jamie made their entrance into the Marquee and enjoyed the Drinks Reception.  As the weather was definitely not on our side, requested group pictures were taken in the Marquee.  Later before the Wedding Breakfast, Sophie’s brother Ben made a Speech which did not leave many dry eyes by the end! Following the Wedding Breakfast, we covered the rest of the Speeches before the evening celebrations.  Sophie and Jamie wanted to have some pictures taken using the backdrop of an old ruins of Felix Hall in the grounds, which had been lit up especially for their Wedding.  Despite the awful weather, armed with umbrellas and something to stand on, off we went! Pleased with the results we returned to the evening Reception.   With the Band set up it was soon time for Sophie and Jamie’s First Dance.  After a finishing picture we left them all to dance the night away.  A lovely day!

Family Portraits – Childrens Pictures

Last year, Val, who is an Essex Registrar, asked us to take some family portraits of her grandchildren. They were altogether at Christmas and it was a chance for us to do so.  We had a fun morning and it was great to see Jennie again, Val’s daughter, whose Wedding we photographed at Crabbs Barn, back in 2007!

Wedding Photography Gosfield Hall for Stephanie & Marc

Wedding Photography Gosfield Hall – We were delighted to be asked to photograph Stephanie and Marc’s Wedding at the superb Wedding Venue, Gosfield Hall.  This Wedding was extra special to us as we have known Marc for a number of years, growing up with our son Jonathan.  On arrival at Gosfield Hall, the Rococco Suite was where the girls were getting ready and that is where we made our way to.  The girls were busy with the bridal preparations with the boys downstairs attending to their jobs.  With lots going on David and I were kept busy and once everyone was ready the posed pictures were taken.  The Civil Ceremony was held in the Queen’s Gallery and Steph looked radiant as she made her entrance.  Afterwards, Steph and Marc led their Guests down the stairs and into the Drawing Room for the Drinks Reception. With rain in the air just at the time we were going to go outside, we let Steph and Marc make the most of some extra time with their Guests.  Fortunately, the weather improved enabling everyone to go outside for the required family pictures and Bridal fun pictures. During the afternoon we took Steph and Marc for a short walk around the grounds of Gosfield Hall for their together pictures.  Following the Receiving Line, the Wedding Breakfast was served before the Speeches.  A ‘first’ for us during the Speeches, photographing our son, who was Best Man! It turned out that we were more nervous than our son!  Stephanie and Marc were lucky enough to get a sunset picture, it was not looking as if there was going to be one!  With the evening celebrations beginning, Steph and Marc’s evening Guests arrived. followed by the cutting of the cake.  Steph and Marc then had their First Dance and we captured some lovely moments.  With some night shots taken of them both we left them all to continue the party. A wonderful day!
