The Fennes Estate was the chosen Wedding Venue for Lauren and Terry’s Wedding. This lovely Venue is a joy to work at and fantastic for a wedding photographer! An early start was required for Lauren and her Bridesmaids with lots of preparations going on. When we arrived we just followed the sound of laughter and excitement which led us upstairs into the Bridal Room. In between taking the details and accessory pictures, we captured some lovely informal moments of the preparations. At the same time we were keeping our ears open for the sound of a McLaren Sports Car which had been a surprise for Terry, he was being picked up and driven to Fennes by his Best Man. We wanted to make sure we were in the right place so we did not miss the big arrival. Once Terry with his Best Man and Ushers were all there, they quickly finished their preparations in the Library before any of the Guests arrived and we took a few portraits.
Back upstairs the girls were almost ready. Lauren, six Bridesmaids and family members, and ourselves all moved to The Fennes Suite where there was more room for the finishing off and pictures. As usual, the time was rapidly disappearing so we had to work quickly to get the pictures needed for Laura’s Storybook album. Lauren’s Dad was waiting at the bottom of the stairs and greeted her before she saw the Registrars.
Once the Guests were seated in the Pavilion, Lauren and her Bridesmaids made their entrance looking beautiful. Everybody enjoyed the Drinks Reception outside whilst we arranged the requested family pictures. Trying to keep the wonderful relaxed atmosphere going we took some fun pictures of the Bridal Party and some car shots. Leaving their Guests temporarily for a few minutes to take Lauren and Terry for their bridge shots resulted in some nice images.
After the confetti shots it was time for the Speeches prior to the Wedding Breakfast in the delightfully decorated Pavilion. Lauren and Terry wanted some pictures in the Red Room and Gold Room together with other evening pictures. To make the most of their Venue in the pictures we took these in the relaxed time after the meal.
Going here, there and everywhere capturing images of the day, kept us busy!
Following the First Dance and some informal pictures of the evening Guests it was time for us to say goodbye. A superb day! A couple of notes we must add, it is always great to work with David of Rideout Films as we keep each other informed of what is happening that either of us could miss, and thanks to the staff at Fennes for making us welcome as usual.
