Fennes Wedding Photographs for Joanne and Keiran

Fennes Wedding Photographs for Joanne and Keiran

It was a nice day when we arrived at Fennes for Jo and Keiran’s Fairytale Wedding. Jo was getting ready there, so after saying ‘hello’ and a quick chat to the girls, we got on with taking general preparation shots. Joanne’s Wedding Dress and Accessories were in the Fennes Suite so we made sure we took pictures of these before Jo dressed in them. The Bridesmaids and Mum then assisted Joanne with putting her dress on. We took a couple of pictures including the first time Joanne’s Father saw his daughter in her Wedding Dress before we all went downstairs into the Gold Room.Fennes Wedding Photographs That is a nice option when getting ready at Fennes then leaving for the service elsewhere, no guests to see the Bride! After a a few pictures of Joanne and her Bridesmaids, it was time for the Bridesmaids to leave in the Horse & Carriage for St Mary’s Church, Bocking. There was a little time for us to take a few Bridal portraits of Joanne, who looked beautiful, and a couple of pictures with her Parents before it was time for us to leave. Arriving at St. Mary’s Church, the men were carrying out their duties. Knowing the Horse and Carriage was on the way back to Fennes to pick up Joanne and her Father we got on with taking pictures of Keiran with his Groomsmen and Parents, safe in the knowledge that Jo was not going to appear! They then resumed their duties whilst we took a few Guest arrival pictures. Joanne arrived and together with her Bridesmaids walked up the path to the Church for the service. Wedding Photographer St Marys Bocking Essex This Wedding service will be remembered for a long time to come! Joanne and Keiran’s Wedding had a ‘Disney’ Theme running throughout and the Vicar played his part!  With everybody listening to what the Vicar was saying about Joannne and Keiran, nobody expected him then to burst into the disney song ‘When you wish upon a Star”. A wonderful performance! Some lovely captured moments of surprise for everyone and tears of joy from Joanne!  After the service Joanne and Keiran went outside, greeted a few Guests before we got on with a few requested family pictures. Once these were finished, Guests made their way down the path to the entrance gate ready for the confetti throwing.Wedding Photographer Fennes Horse and carriage Afterwards it was time to go to Fennes for the Reception.  During the Drinks Reception as well as taking some informal pictures of Guests we took a few other pictures and had time for a few pictures of Joanne and Keiran.Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes It started to rain just as we finished the pictures, the Bride and Groom were really lucky! Whilst the Guests made their way down to the Pavilion for the Wedding  Breakfast, Jo and Keiran chilled out in the Red Room where we took a shot of them just as they were! The Speeches followed the meal, some brilliant reactions!  Later they cut their Wedding Cake and had their First Dance. After taking a few evening pictures we made ourselves scarce so as not to spoil the surprise. There was going to be a Firework display a little later on. Fortunately, when the time came the rain had stopped so everyone could go outside and watch the fabulous display. Happy with our fireworks pictures and after saying our goodbyes we left them to carry on the celebrations.Recommended Wedding  Fennes photographer fireworks It was a pleasure being part of Joanne and Keiran’s special day, a lovely couple, and thank you both for wanting the pictures. It was nice working with Nicola at Fennes and working with Simply Wedding Movies again.

 

 

 

 

 
 
 

Ultimate Essex Wedding Show Charter Hall Colchester

Ultimate Essex Wedding Show Charter Hall Colchester

This Sunday will be the first time in over 20 years that we have not exhibited at The Ultimate Essex Wedding Show Charter Hall Colchester. Unfortunately over the last few years, the price of stands has risen, the number of Bride’s has decreased and the length of the show has been reduced, making it no longer viable for us to attend. We note this same action has been taken by all the other established, experienced local wedding photographers! We have made many friends at the show and wish them all well. Our wedding shows will be more venue based in future.

Family Portrait Photos – Gemma & Dan

Family Portrait Photos for Gemma & Dan

It was nice to see Gemma and Dan again back in early summer, just over a year since they were married at The Fennes Estate. Gemma and Dan now have a baby son, called Caleb, and they wanted a few pictures of him. Caleb, being only a couple of weeks old was really good.  Whilst we were there we took the opportunity of taking a few pictures of all the family.

Woodhall Manor Wedding Photography – Natalie & Shane

Woodhall Manor Wedding Photography

It was nice to be back for more Woodhall Manor wedding photography in Woodbridge, Suffolk. This time for the Wedding of Natalie and Shane. This beautiful country Mansion looked a picture in the sunshine as we arrived and it was going to be a hot day.  Natalie was getting ready inside the Manor so first of all we went off to meet with her. Make-up and hair were well underway and other preparations were going well. Shane was getting ready in the Cottage with his Groomsmen and once they were ready we took a few pictures. The Bridesmaids were first to put their dresses on, the chosen colour complimenting the weather! Natalie followed soon after and looked lovely. After taking a few pictures it was time for the Civil Ceremony outside. Taking her Father’s arm Natalie followed the Bridesmaids towards the Dovecote in the walled garden where the Ceremony was taking place.

Engagement photo shoot – Nicky and Phil

Nicky and Phil came to see us one evening recently for their Engagement photo shoot and pre-wedding meeting. After chatting about their forthcoming Wedding at  Boreham House, we went  out  to take a few pictures of them. The wild flowers were out along Witham’s River Walk and they made a great setting – we were very careful not to flatten the flowers!

It was a lovely day when we arrived at Fennes for Lindsay and Dane’s Wedding. On arriving at Fennes, we just followed the sound of chatter and laughter which was happening in the Bridal Room. Preparations were going well especially with lots of Bridesmaids and a Flowergirl. Leaving the girls for a few minutes to carry on we went into Fennes Suite where we took pictures of the Lindsay’s Wedding Dress and accessories. Dane was making his final preparations at Fennes with his Ushers and Groomsmen.Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes When Dane was ready, looking very dapper, together with his Best Man, Ushers and Groomsmen, they had a few pictures taken in front of the house. Lindsay wanted to go for a ride with her Father in the Horse and Carriage before the Ceremony, so hats off to all the girls, they were all ready on time for that and we were able to take some pictures beforehand. Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerReturning from their ride, Lindsay then met with the Registrars before re-joining her Father and they walked through Fennes to the Pavilion.

Deborah and Nick got in touch with us recently to take some pictures of their newborn son, Edward and a couple of them as a family. We were delighted to do so and a few days after Edward was born we visited them to take some pictures. Edward was so good, we had a lovely time resulting in some nice pictures.

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photography for Anita and Ian

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photography

Anita and Ian held their Evening Wedding at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon recently. When we arrived Chris was there and greeting a few Guests. Before too many more guests arrived we took a couple of pictures of him  before they all went into the Barn to be seated for the Ceremony.  Anita arrived shortly after with her friend Jenny who was going to be one of the witnesses. After a couple of pictures of them it was time for the Ceremony. Everybody enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the Garden Room afterwards. Anita and Ian had time to socialise with their Guests and allowed us to capture some informal pictures. Time allowed us to take Anita and Ian for a few pictures around Crabbs Barn and take some requested pictures they wanted before it was time for the BBQ.

Recommended Wedding Photographer Crabbs Barn Speeches followed and then Anita and Ian cut their Wedding Cake. Their First Dance followed and after capturing a flavour of their celebrations and a finishing picture, we said our goodbyes.Crabbs Barn Wedding Photography
