We saw Suzanne and Keanne again in the late summer last year before their Wedding in the Autumn. After a chat and all happy with the arrangements we went out to take a few pictures. Suzanne and Keanne’s Wedding is at The Barn, Great Tey.
Boreham House Wedding Photography for Nicola & Philip
Boreham House Wedding Photography – Nicola and Philip’s summer wedding Reception was held at the stunning Boreham House following their Church Ceremony at St Mary’s, Great Baddow. We arrived at Nicola and Philip’s house on a glorious morning. Nicky and her Bridesmaids were having their make up applied and finished outside on the patio in the garden, it was such a warm day. Whilst we got on with taking detail pictures of the dress and accessories upstairs we could keep an eye on what was happening from the bedroom window. The Flowergirls were the first to get dressed they had a few pictures taken in the garden.
The Bridesmaids were next to get ready as they were going to help Nicola get ready. Dressed, Nicola looked so elegant! After the pictures in the garden with her Mother, the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls, it was time for us to depart for St Mary’s Church, Great Baddow. Philip was at the Church when we got there and when all the Groomsmen arrived we took a few pictures. Many of the Wedding Guests arrived at the Church on the double decker bus. This always makes for some nice arrival pictures. Nicola arrived a little later and we took action pictures of them all as they walked unto the Church doorway. the Flowergrirls led the way into the Church. Nicola walked up the aisle holding a lighted candle in remembrance of her Father. Following the service, whilst waiting for everyone to exit the Church, Nicola and Philip had a few minutes to mingle. A few requested family pictures and Bridal Party were taken at the Church before the Guests led the path down to the Lych Gate for confetti. Nicola and Philip then left the Church for their Wedding Reception at Boreham House. Using the time wisely we took a couple of car pictures and a few pictures of them in front of Boreham House before the Guests arrived. The Drinks Reception was held on the back lawn. During the rest of the afternoon we took a few special pictures for Nicola and Philip and some relaxed Bridal Party pictures. The Speeches followed the Wedding Breakfast. Nicola’s Mum made a lovely Speech and the Speeches by the Groom and the Best Men were excellent! Some wonderful moments! Afterwards Nicola and Philip cut their Wedding Cake.The grounds around Boreham House are superb so in the time between the end of the Wedding Breakfast and the start of the evening Reception Guests took a walk around. A short time was spent with Nicola and Philip away from the Guests for a few pictures of them together in the soft evening light, a wonderful Sunset as well! On our return more of the Evening Guests had arrived. With the Band set up the evening celebrations began. After capturing some evening pictures of the celebrations it was time for us to disappear, not leave! Nicky and Phil as a surprise to their Guests were going to have Fireworks later on in the evening. We made ourselves scarce, appearing later on when the Guests were asked to go around to the front of Boreham House. What a magnificent display of fireworks! Really pleased with our pictures, after the display we said our ‘goodbyes” and left them to continue with the party.. It was lovely to see Bex and Pete again at Nicky and Phil’s Wedding, we photographed their Wedding at Spains Hall a few years ago. Bex did extremely well on the day helping Nicky despite it being a hot day and expecting! As for Nicky and Phil, congratulations on your Wedding, a wonderful day!
A lot of our Baby and Family Portraits comes from recommendation. Laura and David had been given one of our Vouchers for a Baby and Family Portrait after the birth of their daughter, Amber. Laura’s sister, Rebecca and husband James used us as their Wedding Photographer at Layer Marney Tower in 2014 , and subsequently we took pictures of their daughter, Chloe, in 2015. They in turn purchased a Portrait Voucher for Laura and David. We were delighted to take some pictures of Amber by herself and some of the three of them together.. Amber was no trouble at all, preferring to sleep than to stay awake!
Rachel and Paul wanted a Fennes Wedding. It was a beautiful day and when we arrived we went upstairs to the Bridal Room to meet with Rachel. Hair and Make-up was in the final stages, Rachel was chilled! Paul, his Best Man and Ushers were downstairs almost ready for their pictures. Once they were ready we took a few pictures of them before leaving them to meet the Wedding Guests. As the Guests arrived they had the option of sitting outside in the sunshine or sheltering from the rising temperature! Once Rachel and the girls were ready we took a few pictures of them and a few portraits of Rachel. The Guests were seated for the Outside Ceremony so Rachel, Emma, Rachel and Paul’s daughter, and the Bridesmaids came down the stairs into the Gold Room. After greeting Emma as she came into the room, Rachel’s Father then escorted his daughter out of the room and across the grass to where the Ceremony was going to take place.
Luke, Paul’s son, handed over the rings at the required moment, and after completing the formalities the Ceremony was finished. Rachel and Paul then enjoyed the Drinks Reception with their Guests in the grounds of Fennes. A few requested family group pictures were taken during this time together with a few pictures of Rachel and Paul on their own. It was nice to go under the trees for a break from the sun! Later the Guests went first into the Pavilion, followed by the entrance of Rachel, Paul, Emma and Luke. for the start of the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches followed then everybody made their way out to the front of Fennes for the ‘everybody’ shot. By this time the sun had disappeared and it was cooler! We caught up on a few pictures that we didn’t do earlier in the day, making sure Rachel and Paul had their family pictures that they wanted. Rachel and Paul cut their Wedding Cake and took to the dance floor for their First Dance. A brilliant sunset concluded our coverage of Rachel and Paul’s Wedding. Well done to Rachel and Paul, a lovely Wedding Day, arranged within six weeks of booking Fennes!
