Wedding photographer Blake Hall, Ongar – Blake Hall is a wonderful Wedding Venue and our first Wedding there! After being asked to photograph there several times and couldn’t because we were already booked meant we were so looking forward to Jenna and James’ Wedding. We arrived at Jenna and James’ house on an extremely humid day. Bridal preparations were well underway and excitement was a plenty! Once Jenna was ready, looking beautiful, she made her way down the stairs where her Father and Bridesmaids were waiting. After Jenna had given presents to the Bridesmaids and emotions were back under control, we went outside for a few pictures. With our job completed we went off to St Mary’s, Great Baddow, where the marriage was to take place. We were there to capture images of James and his Groomsmen as they walked towards the Church. and as we had them altogether we took a few pictures of them before the Wedding Guests arrived. The sun was out as James greeted the Guests before disappearing into the Church shortly before Jenna arrived. Following the Church service, Jenna and James led their Guests out of the Church. After a quick few greetings to their Guests, we got on with the requested family pictures. Everybody co-operated really well as time needed to be allowed for journey to Blake Hall. Jenna and James then walked down the path to the Lych Gate where they were showered in confetti before leaving for the Reception. Thankfully there were no traffic hold-ups on the way, which enabled us to get straight on with Jenna and James’ pictures when arriving at Blake Hall as we had planned with them. When time is short a good plan makes a huge difference and this enabled us to get all the shots we needed of Jenna and James in the gardens whilst their Guests were welcomed by Mervyn and Austin. Spoilt for choice of settings, we covered as much as we could before Jenna and James joined their Guests. A short time later we took some fun Bridal Party pictures and made sure we captured some informal pictures. The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Barn and before the Speeches, time for a sunset picture! After the Speeches, everybody enjoyed the warm evening socialising. The evening Guests arrived and Jenna and James took to the dance floor for their First Dance. We finished our evening a little later after catching up with familiar faces. A lovely couple, a great day, a wonderful Venue!
