Wedding Photography Braxted Park for Sarah-Jayne & Michael

Wedding Photography Braxted Park – Braxted Park was the superb Essex Wedding Venue Sarah Jayne and Michael chose for their Wedding. It was a dry autumnal day when we arrived at Braxted Park on the morning of the Wedding.  Sarah-Jayne and her Bridesmaids were getting ready in the Bride’s Changing Room  with all things going smoothly. Michael was outside having a few pictures taken with his Best Man and Ushers before the Wedding Guests started to arrive.  Braxted Park Wedding

With final preparations complete the girls were having some photos taken before it was time for the Ceremony.  With the Guests seated in the Orangery, Sarah-Jayne took her Father’s arm and they walked the short distance to the front of the room for the Ceremony to begin.  Following the Ceremony, Sarah-Jayne and Michael had a couple of minutes to themselves whilst their Guests were being shown the way to the Walled Garden.  We then took Sarah-Jayne and Michael through the House for a few pictures before they joined their Guests on the steps.  After the picture of everyone the Guests lined the path to the Walled Garden for the confetti throwing before the Drinks Reception.  The weather was still holding so everybody mingled outside while we completed the few requested family pictures.  We made the most of the hard standing areas, and took these pictures plus a few fun ones as the grass was a little damp.  Taking a little time to take Sarah-Jayne and Michael away for a few together pictures by the Lake and Driveway proved to be the right thing to do just before the rain arrived!Essex Wedding Photographer Braxted Park We captured some nice images before we returned a little while later in time for the Wedding Breakfast.  The pavilion looked lovely and once Sarah-Jayne and Michael were seated the meal was served.  Coverage of the Speeches followed and a while later the Evening Guests arrived.  Sarah-Jayne tossed her bouquet just before the happy couple took to the dance floor for their First Dance.  Braxted Park at night looks beautiful and  before we left we took a few pictures of Sarah-Jayne and Michael by the fountain.Braxted Park Essex Wedding Photographer

Braxted Park Wedding photography for the Civil Ceremony and Reception for Sarah and Toby’s Wedding. Sarah and Toby wanted to have an intimate Wedding with their Family and closest friends and we were delighted to photograph their special day for them.  When we arrived at Braxted Park we made our way to the Bride’s Changing Room where Sarah, her Mother, Elaine, and her sister Danielle, the Bridesmaid, were in the final stages of getting ready.

Essex Wedding PhotographerDavid then went to meet Toby and his brother, Ben, who was the Best Man to take a few pictures of them.Braxted Park Wedding Once Sarah was ready we took a few portraits of the family and a few Bridal pictures before it was time for the Ceremony.  The Guests were seated in the Lantern Room where the Ceremony would take place. We delayed taking the photographs straight after the Ceremony due to a light shower of rain, which enabled Sarah and Toby to enjoy a drink and greet their Guests.  After a few minutes it was fine to go outside and start taking the requested group pictures.  It was a warm day and the weather held so afterwards we went down to the lake for a few pictures of Sarah and Toby together.

Wedding Photography for Sally & Steve – Braxted Park, Witham

Sally and Steve chose the beautiful Wedding Venue, Braxted Park, for their Wedding.  Sally was getting ready in the house, and when we arrived preparations were going well and with ample space for everybody to move around some nice images were captured.  The rain that had been falling during the morning fortunately had stopped for some pictures of Steve outside with his Best Man and Parents. Sally and Steve had an early Wedding Ceremony  as they wanted ” to make the most of a wonderful day”.  The Wedding Ceremony was held in the Orangery and afterwards, Sally and Steve and ourselves went out towards the front of the House, whilst the Guests went the other way to the steps for the ‘everybody’ picture. wedding-photographer-essex-braxted park After this picture, with help from the Bridesmaids in keeping Sally’s dress from getting wet, Sally and Steve were showered in confetti before the Drinks Reception.  Allowing time for socialising and for us taking some informal pictures, a few requested family photographs were taken, before making our way towards the Gazebo, where it was dry underfoot for some pictures. With the Bridal Party joining us as well we took a few fun pictures before they returned to the Pavilion leaving us with Sally and Steve.  A change of footwear for Sally, an extremely quick drive to the Lake, a few pictures before returning to their Guests.  The Wedding Breakfast was followed by the Speeches and towards the latter part of the Speeches  the late afternoon sun was peering through the trees so after the Speeches Sally and Steve were more than happy to take advantage of this. wedding-photographer-essex-braxted park Sally and Steve’s evening celebrations started with the arrival of their evening Guests, then the Bouquet toss before the First Dance.  Sally and Steve performed a fantastic rehearsed First Dance which delighted everybody. With the lights on around Braxted Park, Sally and Steve wanted a few evening pictures which we enjoyed doing before leaving them to continue with their party.    wedding-photographer-essex-braxted park
