Fennes Wedding Photography – Chrissy and Mick chose the wonderful Fennes for their Spring Wedding this year. Chrissy was getting ready in the Bride’s Room when we arrived, hair and make up well underway.
Mick was finishing off his preparations downstairs so after saying ‘hello’ to Chrissy, David went to find out how things were going. Once the men were ready they had some pictures taken outside. ‘His’ and ‘Her’s’ cars were parked in front of Fennes, ready for pictures now and later. Chrissy was soon ready for her pictures.
The Wedding Ceremony
Chrissy and Mick’s grandchildren were downstairs waiting to play their part in the Wedding. After Chrissy’s meeting with the Registrars it was time for the Ceremony. The Wedding Ceremony was held in the Pavilion and the children led the way before Chrissy taking herDad’s arm entered the room. After the Ceremony everyone went outside for the Drinks Reception. It was such a lovely day weather wise, just right for everyone to enjoy themselves around the grounds of Fennes. It was great to be outdoors, the garden games were out for everyone to play with. A lovely afternoon, filled with lots of laughter and fun. After a few requested pictures during the afternoon, we took Chrissy and Mick for a short walk around the grounds, amongst the bluebells and on the bridge. Confetti pictures were before the Wedding Breakfast and after the meal it was time for the Speeches.
The Evening Celebrations
The evening light afterwards was right for a few more pictures later on. During the evening we took some informal pictures capturing the enjoyment of the day. Chrissy and Mick cut their Wedding Cake before their First Dance then Guests joined them on the dance floor. The sunset was glorious, not to be missed! Afterwards Chrissy and Mick returned to their Guests to continue the celebrations. Congratulations Chrissy and Mick on your Wedding! It’s a pleasure knowing you! You are such a fun loving couple, we so enjoyed working with you. Thank you for asking us.
We were delighted to be Vaulty Manor Wedding Photographers for the Spring Wedding of Emma & Rob. The forecast for the day was that it was going to be a hot day and we were not disappointed.
When we arrived at Vaulty Manor on the morning of the Wedding it wasn’t long before we were looking for the shade! Emma was getting ready in the Bridal Suite with her Mum.
Preparations were going well so we got on with taking a few pictures of Emma’s Wedding Dress and accessories. We liked their Disney theme!
Rob and his Brother,Paul, were around the Venue sorting out a few last minute things before they went off to get ready. Preparation pictures taken, Rob and Paul got into their Wedding attire. Once they were ready they had a few pictures with the Dads with the Wedding Car.
The car was for Emma and her Dad as they were going to go for a car ride before the Ceremony. Once Rob’s pictures were finished they went into the new Reception area. Emma had a few pictures taken in the Bridal Suite once she was ready but time was evaporating at an increased rate! Emma and her Father then went off for a ride. As the Guests arrived at Vaulty Manor they went into the new Reception area which is a lovely extension to this Wedding Venue.
The Wedding Ceremony
Before long it was time for the Guests to go into the room for the Civil Ceremony. Emma had arrived back at the Venue and after seeing the Registrars was ready to make her entrance into the room accompanied by her Father. Following the Ceremony the Guests made their way outside and waited for Emma and Rob to come out so they could cover them with confetti. As everyone enjoyed the Drinks Reception we took some informal pictures. Emma and Rob wanted some family pictures taken which we took afterwards.
We couldn’t believe the swan in the grounds of the Manor House made an appearance so taking the Bride and Groom with us we went over to the pond and took a few pictures. It was such a lovely day but rather hot so we didn’t take very long in taking their pictures, they were happy and so were we to do catch up on their pictures in the evening.
The Wedding Breakfast
It was soon time for the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches followed. Rob delivered his Speech as is usual for the Groom, finishing it off with a magic trick. The pressure was on, especially as there was a Magician in the room! Brilliant! It worked, well done, Rob! After the Wedding Breakfast the Magician entertained the Guests whilst we took Emma and Rob around the grounds to catch on a few pictures we didn’t do earlier. Wonderful light, lovely pictures. In addition the Swan made another appearance!
Once the Band had set up Emma and Rob cut their Wedding Cake and had their First Dance. During the evening we took a few pictures of the evening Guests then made ourselves scarce for a little while. Later it was time for Sunset, Sparklers and as a surprise for everyone there were Fireworks. Once these were finished we said our goodbyes. Thank you Rob and Emma for being such a lovely couple to work with, a very enjoyable day with some wonderful pictures!
So nice to catch up with Sam and Craig again as we photographed their Wedding at Crabbs Barn in 2015.
Another Essex Wedding Photographer Testimonial email to us before the couple had even seen a picture!
We can not thank you enough for being part of our special day. All our guests said how lovely you both were, and how your passion for photography really shows through. Myself and alex both enjoyed the photos being taken on the day and you made us both feel so comfortable. We did not feel at all like we were on an all day photo shoot. We really can not wait to see the photos and put the album book together with you.
Maybe not everybody wants to feel that way and book other photographers!
Clare Priory & Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography
Jemma and Nick were married earlier this year at Clare Priory with their Reception at Smeetham Hall Barn, Bulmer. Our day started at The Mill Hotel, Sudbury which is where Jemma and Nick were getting ready. Jemma was being assisted by her Bridesmaids and preparations were going well. Meanwhile Nick was being helped by his Groomsmen in a different part of the Hotel.
Both sets of preparations pictures were very relaxed and good fun. Once Nick was ready we took a few pictures of him with his Groomsmen outside The Mill Hotel before he set off for Clare Priory. The girls were soon ready for their pictures and we took those in the room. It was then time for David and I to set off for Clare Priory. The Church of Clare Priory is lovely and located in a picturesque setting. When we arrived Nick and his Groomsmen were greeting some Guests but we had time to take a few pictures of them before they carried on with their duties. A little while later Jemma arrived with her Father and the Bridesmaids. When everyone was seated in the Church, Jemma made her entrance. The lighting of a Candle started the service.After the service the Wedding Guests mingled whilst we spent a few minutes in the gardens outside the Church taking a few pictures of Jemma and Nick. Before leaving the Guests threw confetti over Jemma and Nick.
Smeetham Hall Barn Reception
Smeetham Hall Barn looked wonderful on this bright, sunny, spring day. Jemma and Nick had time to spend with their Guests and enjoy their Drinks Reception before we carried on with a few more pictures around Smeetham Hall Barn. Time was getting on and the Wedding Breakfast was next. Jemma and Nick decided to have the Speeches before the meal. Shortly after the meal Jemma and Nick cut their Wedding Cake and took to the dance floor for their First Dance. As it was such a lovely day, sunset beckoned! Happy with our coverage of Jemma and Nick’s Wedding a little later we left them to continue the celebrations. A lovely couple and a wonderful day! Congratulations Jemma and Nick!
