Same-Sex Wedding Photography – Stock Brook Manor for Kate & Lorna

Same-Sex Wedding Photography – Stock Brook Manor for Kate & Lorna

We were looking forward to Kate & Lorna’s marriage, this being our first same-sex Wedding Photography.  It was a bright, dry but windy day when we arrived at the Hotel for some preparation shots of Kate and Lorna. With lots going on together with lots of people, David and I had our work cut out capturing the key moments as they happened! TDH Media were on hand as well videoing and putting together the Marryoke. Kate was the first to be ready to leave the Hotel with some of the Bridesmaids and head off to Stock Brook Manor, Essex.  Time was getting short so we took our  final preparation images of Lorna and made our way to Stock Brook.  Whilst waiting for Lorna to arrive we had time to catch up with Kate for a few pictures.  Once Lorna arrived and after taking a few pictures of her it was time for the Ceremony.  With the Guests seated for the Ceremony, the girls took their Dads’ arm and made their separate way to the Rosewood Suite.  Kate was the first to enter the room from the side door and made her way to the front of the room. Then Lorna made her entrance from the back of the room to join Kate.Stock Brook Manor Wedding PhotographerAfter exchanging their vows and now married, Kate and Lorna led their Guests outside onto the patio behind Stock Brook Manor for the Drinks Reception.

Once all the wedding guests were seated, Kate and Lorna took their places on the top table for the start of the Wedding Breakfast.  Soon it was time for the Speeches and as they finished it was a quick dash to get the sunset. Well worth it!  Nice pictures as well as good fun!Stock Brook Manor Same-sex Wedding Essex Returning to their Guests, Kate and Lorna then cut the Wedding cake before their First Dance.  After capturing a flavour of the evening entertainment, it was time for us to leave and let them continue with the celebrations.  A great day!

Engagement session – Helen & Jamie

Engagement session – Helen & Jamie

We met Helen and Jamie again one morning recently at Jamie’s Parents’ home.  With their Marquee Wedding Reception taking place there we acquainted ourselves with the surroundings where the Helen and Jamie wish their pictures to be taken. After discussing their Wedding Day details we went for a short walk for their pictures in the woods around Assington for their Engagement session. Our first photo was with the wild flowers growing along the path and then deeper into the wood. Hopefully in summer we’ll have a few more leaves to fill the background. Should be a great wedding.

Wedding Photography Parklands, Quendon Hall – Jessica & George

Wedding Photography Parklands

A beautifully, extremely warm spring day for Jessica and George’s Wedding Day at Parklands, Quendon Ha,ll in the north of Essex.  Our coverage started upstairs in the Bride’s changing room where it was all happening!  Sam, www.beautiful-you.biz, was doing the make up and Tina, www.beautifulhair4weddings.co.uk was doing the hair, so some nice images were captured.

Wedding Photography ParklandsWith pictures of other details and accessories taken it was soon time to move to Room l.  Whilst this was happening, George, his Best Man and Ushers were having their pictures taken in front of the House out of sight.   Some of the Guests as they arrived enjoyed mingling in the sunshine in the grounds of Parklands. When Jessica was ready we took a few pictures of her and her with her Mother and Bridesmaids.  It was soon time for the outside Ceremony.  Jessica, looking so elegant, made her way down the stairs with the Bridesmaids leading the way. With the Guests seated it was time for the Ceremony. It was at this point, the wind decided to play havoc with Jessica’s veil!  Parklands Quendon Hall Recommended Wedding PhotographerAfter the Ceremony the Wedding Guests followed Jessica and George to the Drinks Reception in the grounds.  For a little while Jessica and George socialised with their Guests whilst we captured some less formal images. Some requested family pictures followed,  and we were assisted by Glen Mayes, the Toastmaster.  We managed to take Jessica and George for a short time around the grounds of Parklands and to the lake for their pictures and do some bridal part fun shots before the Receiving Line.Parklands Quendon Hall Wedding Photographer The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Banqueting Suite followed by the Speeches.  Once these were finished, many of the Guests retreated outside to enjoy the warmth of the evening sunshine. Whilst the evening’s entertainment was being set up, the result of a beautiful day provided a nice sky.Wedding Photographer Parklands, Quendon Hall  Later after the First Dance we finished our coverage of Jess and George’s Wedding with a couple of night pictures. A wonderful day!

It was nice to see Nicola again with members of her family, and to meet for the first time Annaliese, her daughter. Updated pictures was the request, since the last time we took some was in 2011. We photographed each child separately, with their sibling and as a group.

We had a lovely morning seeing Alison, Nathan and Elodie again recently.  The last time we saw them was in September last year, when we photographed Elodie for the first time.  What a difference a few months makes!  With Elodie on the move, we had to be quick, but great results and good fun!

Stock Brook Manor Wedding Photography – Jane & Geoff

Stock Brook Manor Wedding Photography

It was a windy but a bright dry day for Jane and Geoff’s Wedding at Stock Brook Manor.  Jane’s final bridal preparations were taking place upstairs at Stock Brook, which is where we found her with her Daughter, Nicki, Son, Dan and Granddaughter, Mikayla. Whilst I was capturing a few informal pictures upstairs, Geoff was having his pictures taken downstairs by David.  In between times Geoff was welcoming the Guests. We took a few pictures of Jane and her family, as Geoff and the Wedding Guests made their way into the Garden Room for the Ceremony.  Jane took Dan’s arm,with Mikayla leading the way, they walked into the Ceremony Room. Stock Brook Manor Wedding PhotographyAfter the Ceremony, everybody enjoyed the Drinks Reception inside. We found the most sheltered spot from the wind to take  Jane & Geoff’s requested groups pictures.  The reactions they caused will be remembered! Good fun! Jane and Geoff then re-joined their Guests to continue the Drinks Reception, allowing us to capture some informal pictures.  Jane and Geoff wanted to spend as much time as possible with their Guests but we did manage to steal them away for a few minutes for their ‘together’ pictures. Ted Prior the Toastmaster organised the Receiving Line before the start of the Wedding Breakfast in the Rosewood Suite. The Speeches provided us with some good images and after taking some informal pictures later, it was time for us to leave. A lovely day of Stock Brook Manor wedding photography.
