A beautifully, extremely warm spring day for Jessica and George’s Wedding Day at Parklands, Quendon Ha,ll in the north of Essex.  Our coverage started upstairs in the Bride’s changing room where it was all happening!  Sam,, was doing the make up and Tina, was doing the hair, so some nice images were captured.

When Jessica was ready we took a few pictures of her and her with her Mother and Bridesmaids.  It was soon time for the outside Ceremony.  Jessica, looking so elegant, made her way down the stairs with the Bridesmaids leading the way. With the Guests seated it was time for the Ceremony. It was at this point, the wind decided to play havoc with Jessica’s veil!  Parklands Quendon Hall Recommended Wedding PhotographerAfter the Ceremony the Wedding Guests followed Jessica and George to the Drinks Reception in the grounds.  For a little while Jessica and George socialised with their Guests whilst we captured some less formal images. Some requested family pictures followed,  and we were assisted by Glen Mayes, the Toastmaster.  We managed to take Jessica and George for a short time around the grounds of Parklands and to the lake for their pictures and do some bridal part fun shots before the Receiving Line.Parklands Quendon Hall Wedding Photographer The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Banqueting Suite followed by the Speeches.  Once these were finished, many of the Guests retreated outside to enjoy the warmth of the evening sunshine.

It was a beautiful day for Kerry and Richard’s Wedding at Quendon Hall.   Our day started with Kerry’s bridal preparations in the Changing Rooms, where she was assisted by her Bridesmaid, Rachael. David went to find Richard who was downstairs to take a few pictures of him before the Ceremony.  Kerry moved to the Red Room for a few pictures, whilst the Guests were arriving and being shown to their seats. A short time later Kerry took her Father’s arm and entered the Banqueting Hall for the Ceremony.  Afterwards Kerry and Richard led their Guests outside, not quite believing the wonderful late autumnal weather! Their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception and during the afternoon joined Kerry and Richard for a few family and friends pictures around the fountain.  Kerry and Richard wanted some pictures around the grounds of Parklands as well as in the rooms in the house.  Leaving the Wedding Guests for a short while, off we went.

Following the Ceremony, Sian and Liam led their Guests outside to enjoy the Drinks Reception in the sunshine.Wedding Photographer Essex After a while we took the requested family group pictures but doing these in the minimum time as the temperature was rising!

Parklands Wedding Photography for Siri & Shaf

Parklands Wedding Photography – Siri and Shaf chose the poplar and superb Wedding Venue, Parklands, Quendon Hall, for their Wedding.  Our day started at Parklands, where all the preparations were underway. Siri with her family and Bridesmaids were upstairs in the  Bridal changing room whilst Shaf, his family and Groomsmen were also getting ready in another room and once they were ready, we took them outside for a few pictures. As Siri had the final touches applied for her make-up, a few pictures were taken of her before all the girls transferred to Room 1 for a few more pictures.  Loving this room, with so much more space, we were able to take some nice pictures formally as well as capturing some nice informal images.

With it being a nice day Guests made their way outside enjoying the grounds whilst socialising. After giving Siri and Shaf some time with their Guests it was time to get on with the requested family pictures.  We were extremely grateful for the help from Shaf’s brother,who was the Best Man, and Shaf’s Usher, as well as the co-operation of all Siri and Shaf’s Guests with the group pictures.  All of us working together, brilliant!  After the fun Bridal Party pictures, it was time for Siri and Shaf’s together pictures around the grounds of Parklands, finishing by the field with the oil seed rape.

Siri tossed her bouquet when we returned and shortly afterwards, Siri and Shaf  changed into traditional Asian dress and we took a few pictures of them together.  Once their Wedding Guests had made their way back into the Pavilion they made their entrance.  Before they took their places for the meal they took part in a few traditional Sri Lankan games followed by the cutting of their Wedding cake.  We photographed the Speeches later and traditional ceremony games and captured some great images. Before the evening celebrations really began, we managed to take Siri and Shaf for a couple of evening pictures before returning for the dancing.  The Marquee looked fabulous as the couple took to dance floor for the First Dance, quickly joined by everybody else.  A spectacular scene! 140509-Siri-Shaf-w6  Essex Wedding Photos

Wedding Photography Parklands, Quendon Hall – Katharine & Phil

It was a beautiful day when we arrived at Parklands, Quendon Hall, to do the Wedding Photography for Katharine and Phil, in fact it proved to be the hottest day of the year so far!  The girls were getting ready and all was going well and when Katharine’s hair and make-up was finished we transferred to the Red room for her portraits.  Meanwhile, Phil was greeting the Wedding Guests downstairs and in between his duties we took a few pictures of him and his Groomsmen.  After taking some pictures of Katharine, and the Guests were all seated for the outdoor Wedding Ceremony, Katharine made her entrance. Following the Ceremony, Katharine and Phil led their Guests around the front of Parklands for the Drinks Reception.  Finding shelter from the blazing sun for a few family group pictures was our task at that moment! A while later we took Katharine and Phil for a very short walk for their together pictures before the Wedding Breakfast in the Marquee.  After the Speeches,  and whilst the Wedding Guests were socialising, Katharine, Phil and ourselves left them to take advantage of the evening sunshine around this stunning Wedding Venue, capturing some lovely photographs.  Katharine and Phil then danced their First Dance with Katharine’s Dad being a member of the Band.
