It was lovely to see Katie and Howard again for a Family picture session. The last time was when their daughter, Amelie , was only a few days old. This time Katie and Howard together with members of the family wanted a four generation picture together as well as a few other pictures including just the children.

Katie and Daniel booked us to provide their wedding photography at Fennes. It was nice to be back at this wonderful and popular venue.
Arriving at Fennes the girls were busily getting ready upstairs in the house and Daniel and his Groomsmen were getting ready at Fennes as well so David and I split to cover all the preparations. Katie and Daniel were very relaxed about their Wedding especially as where their children were concerned. Belle, their daughter, was with the girls and Jake, their son was with Daniel and the Groomsmen. Preparations were going well and when Daniel was ready with his Groomsmen, they had some pictures taken. Daniel then went to see the Registrars and then socialised with the Guests. Once Katie was ready we took some pictures upstairs. Katie’s Father was waiting for her to come down the stairs and we were there to capture this special moment when it happened.
The Ceremony and Reception
After meeting with the Registrars they took their places in the Pavilion. The Bridesmaids and Belle, the Flowergirl, went first, followed by Katie and her Dad. After the Ceremony everyone went outside as the weather was nice. During the Drinks Reception we took the requested family pictures followed by some fun Bridal Party pictures. Jake, the Pageboy enjoyed helping David take the pictures! Katie and Daniel’s ‘together’ photos were taken during the afternoon as well. The Guests threw confetti over Katie and Daniel in the Gold Room just before the Guests were called into the Pavilion for the Wedding Breakfast. Katie and Daniel had a few minutes to themselves before they made their entrance into the Pavilion. After the Wedding Breakfast it was time for the Speeches. An couple of additional Speeches were made. Katie delivered one and so did Grace, Daniel’s daughter. They both did very well.
The Evening Reception
There was a short time before the start of the evening celebrations so we took Katie and Daniel for a short while for a few more pictures around Fennes including a glorious sunset picture. Before their First Dance later Katie threw her bouquet. Sparklers, night bridge shots finished our coverage of Katie and Daniel’s Wedding a little later on. A great couple, a lovely family, and a most rewarding day with some lovely unexpected shots.
It was lovely to hear from Donna and Sam again last year asking us if we could take some Home Family Photos for them. Donna and Sam were married in 2015 at Hintlesham Hall, Suffolk. Now they have a son, called Arthur. We went to their home to take the pictures. Arthur was good and loved having his pictures taken a.k.a. playing!!. He did keep us working hard though, as he liked to be on the move. Despite that we took some lovely family pictures and of Arthur alone. He did stay still at some moments! We provided a mixture of colour, and black & white, our favourites are the B&W ones.
Essex Family Pictures for Claire & Tim – As always a pleasure to spend the morning with Claire, Tim and their family. Every so often we update their family pictures for them. Our last visit was earlier last year a couple of weeks after their second son, Henry was born. Later on last year we went to see them again together with Tim’s side of the family. Timing was just right at our latest visit as Henry was on the verge of crawling. Moving around but not getting away! Claire and Tim wanted a selection of pictures of the boys on their own as well as some together. Enjoying our time spent with all of them we ended up with some nice pictures. Thank you Noah and Henry!
Leez Priory Wedding Photography for Charlotte & Kevin
Charlotte and Kevin chose the stunning Leez Priory for their Autumn Wedding last year. It was a warm sunny day when we arrived at Leez Priory on the morning of the Wedding. Charlotte was getting ready with her Bridesmaids and all preparations were going smoothly and the girls were enjoying the time. I stayed with the girls whilst David went off to find Kevin and his Groomsmen. Using the grounds of Leez Priory they had a few pictures taken before they carried out their various duties. Charlotte was assisted by her sister, Jessica, as she was getting dressed. The Guests arrived on the bus and they made their way into Leez Priory. Once Charlotte was ready we had time to take a few arranged pictures of her and with her Bridesmaids and parents. The Ceremony was held in the Great Hall Kevin and his Best Men, Chris and Tim stood at the front waiting for Charlotte to come into the room. Charlotte looked lovely!
The Drinks & Photos
A little while after the finish of the Ceremony we got on with taking a few requested pictures outside. Whilst we were outside the Guests threw rose petals over Charlotte and Kevin. Making the most of the weather and in the sunshine we then took Charlotte and Kevin for a short time to take their pictures. A walk around the grounds provided opportunities for some nice pictures. Charlotte and Kevin still had time to talk to their Guests for the remainder of the Drinks Reception. Charlotte and Kevin greeted their Guests during the Greeting Line before they walked unto the Coach House for the Wedding Breakfast. There was a fantastic sunset at this time so we took the opportunity to take Charlotte and Kevin outside, some great shots!
Wedding Speeches and First Dance
The Speeches followed the meal and afterwards everybody made their way back to Leez Priory for the evening celebrations. Charlotte and Kevin’s evening Guests then joined them. A couple of evening shots with Charlotte and Kevin outside Leez Priory took place before the cutting of the Wedding Cake. Just before the First Dance, Charlotte tossed her bouquet. What an amazing First Dance! Wonderfully choreographed and superbly performed! After capturing a flavour of the evening it was time for us to leave. It was nice to see Nerys and Chris again, we photographed their Wedding at Parklands in 2012. Thank you Charlotte and Kevin for asking us to be your Wedding Photographers, it was a pleasure!
