Wedding Photography Prested Hall for Carrie & Daniel

Wedding Photography Prested Hall for Carrie & Daniel

Carrie and Daniel’s wonderful Wedding was held at Prested Hall, Feering, a couple of months ago. Our day started at Stoke-by-Nayland Golf Hotel and Spa in one of the luxury Lodges. Carrie, her Mum and Bridesmaids were getting read in the Crispin Cox Lodge and everything was going well.   Carrie’s Wedding Dress and accessories were in the bedroom so we got some pictures of these.   Meanwhile, Carrie was having her make-up done and the Bridesmaids were chatting amongst themselves before starting to get ready. With Carrie’s make-up finished and the girls in their Bridesmaid dresses and Mum dressed in her outfit, there was time for Carrie to undo her card and present from Daniel. Some lovely moments! Carrie then helped by her Bridesmaids and Mum got dressed just before her Father arrived. Carrie looked amazing! Capturing the moment her Dad saw Carrie was then followed by taking a few pictures outside on the Balcony of all of them.Recommended Wedding Photographers Prested Hall It was soon time for us to leave to go to Prested Hall.  Arriving there we went to find Daniel who was in the final stages of getting ready. There was time to take a few pictures of Daniel, his Groomsmen and Parents outside Prested Hall before they went  inside before the girls arrived. Carrie arrived soon after with her Father.  As the ground at Prested Hall was very soft (as it was at many other Wedding Venues this weekend)  the outside Ceremony which was planned unfortunately had to take place inside. Once the Guests had taken their seats in the Garden Room and Carrie had seen the registrars, it was time for the Ceremony. After this Carrie and Daniel made their way out of Prested Hall so we could take a couple of pictures with the car.  Meanwhile, the Guests were getting ready to shower Carrie and Daniel with confetti.Wedding Photography Prested Hall Essex As everyone was outside we carried on with some requested family pictures. These pictures were halted a short while later as a shower of rain made an unwelcome appearance! As the Guests socialised inside we took some informal pictures. After the rain shower, the sun came out and we carried on what we had started earlier. Following the fun bridal shots we took Carrie and Daniel for a few minutes over to the Bridge for their pictures. Scruffy, Carrie and Daniel’s dog was waiting for them on our return.  Totally loving the moment, Scruffy was so excited!   .Prested Hall Recommended Wedding Photographer The Marquee was set up beautifully for the Wedding Breakfast and after Carrie and Daniel were seated the meal began. The Speeches were next and then there was  time for people to walk around the grounds, go to their rooms if they wanted, or just sit and chat. The evening light was good so it was at this time we escaped with Carrie and Daniel for some evening pictures, a lovely sky adding to the nice pictures captured. There were cocktails for the start of the evening celebrations which went down a treat! Aurora Pearl had set up the dance floor and the band were soon ready. Carrie and Daniel cut their Wedding Cake before Carrie had a dance with her Father, before the happy couple had their First Dance. For Carrie and Daniel’s sunset pictures, a quick ride in the car was required!  We found the best place for the sunset, so we were happy!  Sparklers finished our coverage of Carrie and Daniel’s Wedding later.Prested Hall Recommended Wedding PhotographersThank you Carrie and Daniel for letting us be a part of your special day. It was well worth the wait! A lovely couple and a memorable day! Great to work again with David Payne of Rideout Productions, Kerry and Paul of Timeless Acoustics and Aurora Pearl as well as all the staff at Prested Hall.

Wedding Photographs Fennes for Kerry & Asif

Wedding Photographs Fennes for Kerry & Asif

Wedding Photographs Fennes for Kerry & Asif  was a nice assignment a couple of months ago.  Kerry was getting ready in the Bridal Room in Fennes whilst Asif  was over in the Cottage. Preparations were going well, we just had our fingers crossed, the rain would stop for Asif’s pictures before the start of the Wedding.  Thankfully it did and we were able to take Asif’s pictures together with his Groomsmen outside Fennes once they were ready.  They then greeted the Guests downstairs in Fennes, whilst we returned upstairs as the girls were ready. We got on with taking a few pictures of them.

Fennes Recommended Wedding Photographer  As the Guests made their way into the Pavilion for the ceremony, the girls came downstairs and Kerry met with the Registrars. During the Ceremony, Imani sang a song whilst playing the Guitar. Kerry and Asif left the Pavilion accompanied by their Guests and went outside. The rain had stopped which made everyone much happier! Making the most of the weather we got on with taking the requested family pictures first off. During the Drinks Reception  Kerry and Asif spent time with their Guests allowing us to capture some natural pictures.Wedding Photographs Fennes Essex Confetti pictures were taken in the Gold Room just before the Wedding Breakfast.

Another nice set of Wedding Photographs at Fennes.

Family Portrait pictures and Pre-Wedding meeting

Family Portrait pictures and Pre-Wedding meeting

Family Portrait pictures and Pre-Wedding  – Charlotte and Paul asked us if we could include a few pictures of the family together with the dogs whilst we were taking their pre-wedding pictures. That was absolutely fine with us, so arrangements were made.  Charlotte and Paul suggested meeting one evening  at St Peter’s Church, Great Totham, which is where Charlotte and Paul are getting married.  Whilst the evening sun was still out we took  a few pictures of Charlotte and Paul then found a different area to take the family pictures.  The dogs were well behaved and we had some pleasing results.   We were all pleased the pictures went well because one of the dogs, Cosmo, unfortunately was put to sleep a few days later.  Memories!

Fennes Wedding Photography for Emily & Robert

Fennes Wedding Photography for Emily & Robert

It was lovely to return for Fennes Wedding Photography for Emily and Robert. When we arrived at Fennes there was lots going with the girls at various stages of getting ready.  Leaving them to it for a few minutes, we went to the Fennes Suite to take the pictures of Emily’s Wedding Dress and accessories. Returning to the girls I stayed with them whilst David went off to meet with Rob and his Groomsmen. They were ready for their pictures and Rob wanted to go to the barn for some of the guys pictures.  That was fine!  As time was on our side, the men had some pictures taken in front of Fennes as well before they greeted the Guests. Meanwhile back upstairs in Fennes Bridal Room, final preparations were coming on well. It wasn’t long before all the girls ready so we got on with a few photos.

Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes Emily’s Father was waiting for her at the bottom of the stairs so after greeting him they went for a short walk before the Ceremony. A special moment for them! The Guests were seated in the Pavilion for the Ceremony so when Emily and her Father returned,  the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls led the way into the Pavilion.  After the Ceremony Emily and Rob had a few minutes to themselves in the Gold Room letting the Guests go outside to get ready for the bubble pictures. Some great reactions! Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerDuring the afternoon the requested family pictures were taken as well as the fun Bridal party pictures and Emily and Rob’s ‘together’pictures. Fennes Wedding PhotographyThey still had social time! Emily and Rob then greeted their Guests in the Receiving Line before the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches followed including a surprise video appearance from Emily’s sister and husband, who were unable to attend the Wedding. It was such a lovely evening, the grounds were bathed in sunshine so everyone made the most of it. Evening pictures beckoned for Emily and Rob and the Bridal party on the bridge, as well as informal pictures of Guests. Good fun was had! Emily and Rob took to the dance floor a little later on for their First Dance. With sunset happening we took the short walk to where we could see the sky, even the short walk generated some nice relaxed pictures of Emily and Rob.Fennes Wedding Photographer Time for us to leave. A wonderful Wedding and a lovely day of Fennes wedding photography! As always thanks to the staff at Fennes for their help and looking after us.
