What a glorious day to be Fennes Wedding Photographer for Stephanie and Paul’s Wedding at this stunning Venue!

Ellie took a little while to do the same but then found it was good fun! Paul was in the Bridal Cottage finishing off his preparations so David went over there to meet him. When Paul,his Groomsmen and the Pageboys were ready there was time to take a few pictures before the ceremony. Meanwhile, Stephanie, the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls were getting dressed. Wow! Stephanie looked stunning as did the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls. The Pageboys looked so smart as well when they joined the girls. There was time to take a few pictures of them all before  Stephanie headed downstairs. Stephanie’s Grandad was waiting for her at the bottom of the stairs and after greeting Stephanie they went in to to see the Registrars. Paul and the Wedding Guests were seated at the last moment outside for the Ceremony as it was a hot day, just in time for the Ceremony to begin!

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers for Charlotte & Paul

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers – We had the pleasure of photographing Charlotte and Paul’s Wedding in the Summer last year at St Peter’s Church, Great Totham and then at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon. It was an early start as we started off at Charlotte’s family home where she was getting ready. Preparations were underway and going well. After taking some pictures of details and accessories and a few getting ready pictures, Charlotte, her Parents and Bridesmaids  got ready. It was a lovely day albeit a touch windy but in the garden we were sheltered so we took a few pictures of them all. When we left to go to the Church,they all had a little time to themselves, except Michael, Charlotte’s Brother, who was an Usher and came with us to the Church. Paul was at the Church with his Groomsmen so we took a few pictures of them before they carried out their duties. As the Guests arrived they chatted for a little while before going into the Church. Charlotte and Paul arrived in  a Horse and Carriage not long after.

St Peter's Church Great Totham Charlotte and her Father had travelled from the family home to Tiptree where their Horse and Carriage was awaiting them.  Charlotte had arranged this but had kept it secret from her Father. Nigel was beaming ear to ear when he arrived as was Charlotte! Time for them to go into the Church. The service was extra special to Charlotte and Paul as this was carried out by  the family’s local Vicar from Braintree. After the service Charlotte and Paul exited the Church and were showered in confetti. Essex Wedding PhotographerCharlotte and Paul spent a few minutes with their Guests before we got on with taking the family Group pictures. It was windy but we were able to take some pictures outside the Church door as well as under the trees. . Charlotte and Paul then left the Church by Horse and Carriage and then halfway to Crabbs Barn they continued by car.Wedding Photographer Essex Crabbs Barn looked wonderful, on arrival the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the grounds. When Charlotte and Paul arrived, they had time to speak to their Guests and enjoy the Drinks Reception as well.  Charlotte and Paul’s pictures around the grounds were taken before the Receiving Line and Wedding Breakfast. Speeches followed the Wedding Breakfast and there was time for everybody to spend time outside enjoying the pleasant evening.  The Barn was set up for the evening celebrations and during this time we went for a short walk into the lane beside Crabbs Barn and also visited the cornfield.  Beautiful light and later on  a stunning Sunset.  The icing on the cake for us! Talking about cake, Charlotte and Paul cut their Wedding Cake before they took to the dance floor for their First Dance.Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers After capturing a few more memories of the evening we said our goodbyes.

Vaulty Manor Wedding Photographer

It was nice to be back again taking photography at Vaulty Manor for the Wedding of Lyndsay and Terry. On arrival at Vaulty Manor we went to see the girls in the cottage.  Hair and make up was being done and with lots of Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride to do, it was a  hive of activity! Saying that, there was no stress and all plans were going well. Terry and his Groomsmen were getting ready at Vaulty Manor as well, so it was nice to take a wander to the rooms they were using to  capture a flavour of their preparation shots.  Samuel, Lyndsay and Terry’s son was with his Dad getting dressed. Once they were all ready we took some pictures of them.  Samuel who was a Pageboy then came over to where Lyndsay was.  Samuel, who looked very smart was joined by the Flowergirls who looked lovely.

Vaulty Manor Wedding PhotographerThe girls all looked amazing and that was before they put their dresses on! There was enough time to take a few other pictures once they were all in their wedding attire. As the Guests made their way into Vaulty Manor for the Ceremony, Lyndsay met with the Registrars. Afterwards the Flowergirls led the way into the Ceremony, followed by the Bridesmaids, Pageboys and finally Lyndsay with her Father. After exchanging their vows and receiving their rings from Samuel they completed the ceremony. Lindsay and Terry stepped outside, followed by their Guests.

Crondon Park Wedding Photographer for Stephanie and Will

Crondon Park Wedding Photographer for Stephanie and Will

Brentwood Cathedral and Crondon Park Wedding Reception. It was a dry start to the day for Stephanie and Will’s Wedding. Stephanie and her family were getting ready at The Harvard Inn, Stock, so we made our way there on the morning of the Wedding. Final Bridal preparations were going well so we got on with taking some pictures of the dresses and accessories. Once Stephanie was looking lovely in her Wedding Dress, her Father came into the room to see her, some nice moments. We took a few groups pictures and a couple of Bridal portraits of Stephanie before we left.  Our destination for the Wedding Ceremony was the splendid Brentwood Cathedral. We had our fingers crossed that the weather would hold out for the pictures of Will and his Groomsmen before the Ceremony.  The forecast for the day was not too good! Will was at Brentwood Cathedral with his Groomsmen when we got there, so we got on straight away with a few pictures of them. Wedding Photographer Essex The men then greeted the Wedding Guests whilst we took some arrival pictures of them.  The rain started to fall a few minutes later, phew! It wasn’t long before Stephanie, her Parents, Bridesmaids and Flowergirls arrived, fortunately they didn’t have far to walk from the car to the entrance of the Cathedral. Using the cover we took a few pictures before Stephanie took her Father’s arm, the doors of the Cathedral opened and the Bridesmaids led the way into the Cathedral. We so love Brentwood Cathedral! Such space and a beautiful ambience.Essex WeddingPhotographer After the service, Stephane and Will made their way to the exit and paused just outside the doors for a couple of pictures as it was still raining.  The Guests remained inside as Stephanie and Will turned back to join them. Having the area to take the large family pictures inside we got on with arranging these requested pictures. Wanting just a window of opportunity to go outside we thought was not on the cards but just as we finished the family shots pictures inside the rain stopped! It was so nice as Stephanie and Will’s Guests blew bubbles over them after we did an ‘everybody’ picture. We worked quickly taking the pictures whilst the weather was on our side.  As we left Brentwood Cathedral the rain started again, great timing! Wedding Photographer Crondon ParkCrondon Park, Stock was the Venue for the Reception and after Stephanie and Will and their Guests arrived, they had time to socialise during the Drinks Reception. Finding time a little later we took Stephanie and Will for a few pictures outside before the Receiving Line and Wedding Breakfast.Crondon Park Wedding Photographer Afterwards it was time for the Speeches. The Barn was then set up for the evening’s entertainment.  Stephanie and Will had their First Dance soon after which was followed by a Ceilidh. As always these are great fun and after capturing some pictures, it was time for us to leave. It was such a pleasure to work with Stephanie and Will, such a lovely couple! A Crondon Park Wedding always seems to make nice pictures!

Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower – Lydia & Terry

Layer Marney Tower – Lydia and Terry chose the wonderful Layer Marney Tower for their Wedding.  First of all we started off at The Holiday Inn, Eight Ash Green, Colchester, which is where Lydia and her family were staying. Everything was running smoothly, so we were able to capture a flavour of the day’s preparations and taking pictures of the accessories. After a few pictures of the girls,  a couple of pictures of Lydia, who looked stunning in her Wedding Dress, and a couple with her Parents once they were ready we left them to it and went to Layer Marney Tower. We met with Terry, his Best Man, Ushers and his Parents straight away when we arrived.  After taking a few pictures of them, the double decker Bus had arrived with the Guests so we were able to take a few pictures of them. Terry and his Groomsmen greeted the Guests before Terry was ushered to see the Registrars. Lydia arrived a little later on in the Layer Marney car and as there was a little time spare we were able to take a couple of pictures. The Wedding Ceremony was held in the Corsellis Room and when it was time Lydia made her entrance accompanied by her Father and Bridesmaids. After the Ceremony, Lydia and Terry went for a short ride whilst their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception in front of the tower whilst we took some informal pictures.   On Lydia and Terry’s return from their car ride, they walked up the path in the glorious sunshine towards the Tower and their Guests.

Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower As Lydia and Terry’s Wedding was in the early afternoon there was plenty of time for them to mingle with their Guests and we had more time for taking the pictures in the afternoon. With Lydia and Terry being such a wonderfully relaxed couple, what more could we ask for! The requested family group pictures were taken and a little while afterwards we took the fun bridal party pictures.   Using the area in front of the Tower, such a wonderful setting and with the sun shining, these turned out well! Lydia and Terry wanted a few pictures around the grounds including the Barn. Layer Marney Recommended Wedding PhotographerThey enjoyed doing these as we did too! Just before the Wedding Breakfast the Guests threw confetti over Lydia on the stairs before they all sat down for the meal in the Long Gallery.Layer Marney Tower Recommended Wedding Photographer After the Speeches, the Long Gallery was set up for the evening’s entertainment.
