Wedding Photography Fennes for Gemma & Martin

Wedding Photography Fennes for Gemma & Martin

Gemma and Martin’s Wedding took place at the wonderful Fennes in the Autumn last year. They chose to have all their Wedding at The Fennes Estate. On the morning of the Wedding it was dry outside, allowing us to take a few pictures of Martin and his Groomsmen. Meanwhile, the girls were upstairs carrying out their final preparations. We had time to take a few Bridal portraits as everything was running on time before Gemma went down the stairs to where her Father was waiting for her.

Unfortunately, the dry day didn’t continue, the rain came, so when the Ceremony had finished Gemma and Martin made their way upto the front of the house and made use of the rooms to socialise.  Keeping the Gold Room free allowed us, a little later on, to get on with taking the requested family pictures. We were able to use the steps outside Fennes for a couple of photos before it was dry enough to go over to the Bridge. The Bridge is a popular feature of Fennes and we do try to get a couple of pictures of the Bride and Groom on there, come what may!Essex Wedding Photographer Fennes classic photography Gemma and Martin were happy for us to take a couple of pictures amongst the leaves.

Engagement Session Rebecca and Michael

Engagement Session Rebecca and Michael

We met Rebecca and Michael one Sunday morning at their home in the Autumn last year.  Deciding to take a walk along Surrey Docks on the bank of the Thames and then on to a local park for their pre-wedding pictures. It turned out to be a  lovely morning and the walk was a good idea. The autumn leaves were just starting to colour adding another dimension to the pictures. After taking some pictures we stopped off for a coffee and a chat about their Wedding at Gosfield Hall.

Children and Family Portraits

Children and Family Portraits

It was lovely to see Rachel and Dom again for their Children and Family Portraits.  We were their Photographers for their Wedding in 2009 at Woolston Manor Golf Club.  They are now the proud Parents of twin girls, Sophia and Amelia.  We had arranged to meet them early morning in the late Autumn at their house and go for a walk in Epping Forrest.  It was a dry day albeit quite wet under foot! Finding a sheltered place where the girls could just wander about amongst the leaves was not too difficult as Rachel and Dom are surrounded by woods! After a few pictures of Sophia and Amelia on their own, we managed to achieve a few family pictures. On our return to Rachel and Dom’s house the children wanted to play in the garden.  Fine by us! This ended an enjoyable morning!

Essex Barn Wedding Photography – Sarah & Rob

Essex Barn Wedding Photography – The White Hart, Great Yeldham

The Essex Barn at The White Hart, Great Yeldham – It was a lovely day for the Wedding of Sarah and Rob in October last year. Arriving at Sarah’s Parents’ house on the morning of the Wedding, Sarah’s Father greeted us as Sarah was at the Hairdressers. It wasn’t long before Sarah appeared with her Bridesmaids and her Mum.  Whilst taking pictures of  the details and accessories, the Champagne was opened and sipped for a few minutes before the girls finished their final preparations. Once everybody was ready we took a few pictures before leaving to go to St Peter’s Church, Coggeshall. We met with Rob and his Groomsmen at the gate and took a few pictures there before walking up the path to the Church.  This beautiful Church provides a wonderful backdrop and we made use of it for their pictures outside in the sunshine. Essex Wedding PhotographerSarah arrived a little while later in a Lodges’ coach.  Accompanied by her Bridesmaids, Sarah made her way up the path to the Church. After a few words with the Vicar, Sarah took her Father’s arm and made her entrance into the Church.Wedding Photographer Essex st peters ad vincula coggeshall During the service the local school choir sung for Sarah and Rob and performed very well.  After the service, the Wedding Guests followed Sarah and Rob out of the Church for some requested family pictures. With these achieved, Sarah and Rob then made their way down the path to the gate where they were showered in confetti.  They then left the Church by coach with some of their Guests for the Reception.  Sarah and Rob’s chosen Venue for the Reception was The White Hart, Great Yeldham.  As the Guests arrived they made their way indoors for the Drinks Reception whilst we took a couple of pictures of Sarah and Rob in front of The White Hart.

We managed to capture some informal moments inside and outside together with some fun Bridal Party pictures.  The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Essex Barn, so once everybody was seated and the Champagne poured, the Speeches started and the meal followed. Although there was not a sunset later, we took a few evening pictures of Sarah and Rob outside.

It was nice to see so many people on the dance floor so quickly and putting on a brilliant display! Thank you Mel and Dave for recommending us to Sarah and Rob. A lovely day!

Colchester Engagement Pictures – Jade and Andrew

Colchester Engagement Pictures

We met Jade and Andrew one afternoon in the Autumn last year for their Engagement pictures at Highwoods Country Park, Colchester.  It was nice to meet them again, and talk as we walked around the woods. As well as taking the pictures we chatted about their forthcoming Wedding at Woodhall Manor, Suffolk in the Spring this year. The Engagement session is always a great way to get to know our clients ahead of the big day! Quite often we’ll use the opportunity to go to an area we have not previously been to or try a new piece of equipment or technique.

Wedding Photography Hintlesham Hall for Donna & Sam

Wedding Photography Hintlesham

Hintlesham Hall Wedding – Donna and Sam  booked us for their Wedding way back in 2013!   It was well worth the wait! They had in fact booked their venue AFTER talking to us and looking through our samples. It was a glorious Autumn day upon our arrival at the stunning Hintlesham Hall. There was plenty of time to capture the ‘getting ready’ pictures of Donna and the girls in the wonderful Braganza Suite and all preparations were going well. Away from the girls, Sam was doing his last minute finishing with his Best Men and Ushers.

Hintlesham Hall Wedding Photographer grooms photosWhilst I stayed with the girls, David went off to join the men. Sam’s pictures were taken outside as the beautiful weather allowed us to. Sam then joined the Wedding Guests who had started to arrive and after capturing a few informal pictures David returned to the girls in the Braganza Suite. By this time Donna was ready, looking absolutely fabulous! After a few  pictures in the room we went to the back stairs for a few more before it was time for Donna to see the Registrars.Hintlesham Hall Wedding Photographer back stairs photographs  The Bridesmaids, Paige the Flowergirl and Tyler the Pageboy waited in the Long Gallery waiting for Donna to join them. The Civil Ceremony was held in The Salon and when it was time Donna took her Father’s arm and walked into the room. Following the Ceremony everybody went into the Garden Room for the Drinks Reception.  Being such a lovely day everyone went outside and socialised. After a little while we got on with taking the requested family photos. Leaving the Guests for a few minutes we took Donna, Sam and the Bridal Party to the front of Hintelsham Hall for a few pictures.  Some lovely pictures with a splendid backdrop! Wedding Photography Hintlesham Hall couple shotsThe Bridal Party returned to join the rest of the Guests allowing us a little time alone with Donna and Sam for their pictures. Spoilt for choice, a whirlwind tour of the grounds resulted in some lovely pictures of the two of them. With time for Donna and Sam to enjoy the rest of their Drinks Reception we left them to it whilst we caught up on a few informal pictures. Just before the Wedding Breakfast Donna and Sam were showered in confetti.  The Speeches followed the Wedding Breakfast and Donna and Sam cut their Wedding Cake before exiting the room for the Band to set up. Waiting for the evening celebrations to begin we took Donna and Sam outside for some night shots.Hintlesham Hall Wedding Photography night pictures A little while after Donna and Sam’s First Dance we took our leave.  Thank you Donna and Sam for choosing us to photograph your Wedding, it was a pleasure and you were brilliant! Thank you to Claire whose Wedding we photographed at Fennes in 2012 and recommended us and nice to see some familiar faces at this Wedding as well.

 
 
 

Family Photos Essex

Family Photos Essex

In between our busy period of photographing Weddings back in the early Autumn last year we spent a lovely morning taking some family photos. We were delighted to be asked by Sharyn, one of Fennes co-ordinators, to take some family photographs. Sharyn’s daughter and her family were over from Australia, so with all the family getting together, fingers were crossed for nice weather on the date they chose! The weather was great and all the pictures came together with the minimum of fuss. We had such an enjoyable time it didn’t feel as if we we were working!  A wonderful family, and an enjoyable morning!
