Before we could do the Wedding Photography at Friern Manor, our first port of call on the morning of Laura and David’s Wedding was arriving at Laura’s Parents’ house. Following the trail of excitement led us us up two flights of stairs to the room where Laura was getting ready. A lovely room, with the added natural light from the skylight and a view to the church. That said, with Laura, her Bridesmaids, her Mum, Make-up Artists, David from Rideout and ourselves, it was a touch busy and tight at times!
After capturing the getting ready pictures the girls put on their dresses and assisted Laura with hers. Laura’s Bridal portraits and family pictures were taken downstairs and we just had enough time to take a few pictures outside with the Bridesmaids and the car. St Andrew’s Church, Hornchurch was where Laura and David were to be married and David and his Groomsmen arrived shortly after us. With a few pictures of all of them taken, we left them to greet the Wedding Guests whilst we took some candid pictures. Not long after, Laura arrived and made her entrance into the Church.After the service we took a few group pictures before taking Laura and David for a very quick walk around the back of the Church for a couple of pictures with the cherry blossom and lilac trees, which provided the backdrop. As Laura and David walked down the path from the church they were showered in confetti and a little while later left for the Reception. So far we had escaped the showers but not taking chances as soon as the guests had arrived at Friern Manor we got on with the remaining pictures so Laura and David still had time to greet their Guests during the Drinks Reception.It was soon time for the Wedding Breakfast and the Speeches. Unfortunately, during the Speeches, the heavens opened, a couple of evening pictures we had planned to do after were scuppered. Being determined to get something though, we found a dry area outside for a couple of evening pictures. Then Laura and David cut their Wedding cake before their First Dance. A nice rewarding day!
