Wedding Photographer Channels for Nicola & Nick

Wedding Photographer Channels for Nicola & Nick

Our next assignment was Wedding Photographer Channels for Nicola and Nick. We began our coverage of their Wedding joining Nicola at Channels where she was getting ready. The preparations went well considering the number of bodies in a fairly small space on a very hot day!

Nick and his Groomsmen were  waiting until the last moment when they had to put on their jackets for their pictures! After taking some pictures of Nick, his Groomsmen and Parents the Bridesmaids got changed whilst Nicola was having the final touches applied to her hair and make-up. They then helped Nicola get into her Wedding Dress.Channels Wedding Photographer

The Wedding Ceremony

After a few pictures  it was time for the Ceremony. Nicola and her attendants made their way outside where Nick and the guests were waiting

After the Ceremony and with their glasses of bubbly Nicola and Nick led their Guests to the area in the grounds for the Drinks Reception.

Unplanned, a Receiving Line occurred! Actually, this turned out ok as the Guests were served with Reception Drinks and could escape into the shade! Whilst this was going on we took some informal pictures.Channels Wedding Photographer A short time later we got on with the requested family pictures. Later on the afternoon we took the Nicola, Nick and the Bridal Party for a few pictures around the front of Channels.  Once these were completed the Bridal Party returned to the Drinks Reception whilst we took Nicola and Nick’s pictures. The trees provided the shade which was very welcome! Wedding Photographer Channels

The Confetti and Wedding Breakfast

Nicola and Nick were showered in confetti just before the wedding Breakfast.

The Speeches followed the meal. Not to be missed was taking some pictures in the evening light so we then took Nicola and Nick to the lake for a walk around for a few minutes. As their Evening Guests had arrived it was time for the cake cutting which was then followed by the dancing.  First of all Nicola and Nick had the chair dance the Hora, around the dance floor before they then had their First Dance.

It was nice to work with  A most rewarding day of Channels Wedding Photography. It was nice to see and work with Michelle of Bumblebee Bridal again and will see her again very soon.

Pre-Wedding Pictures Hylands Park for Nicola and Nick

We met Nicola and Nick one morning a couple of months ago at Hylands Park, Chelmsford. First of all we went for a walk around the grounds taking a few pictures of them. Happy with the results we then went for a coffee and a chat to the teashop to discuss the details of their Wedding Day. This discussion works really well giving us a good idea of what is planned for the wedding day. Nicola and Nick are getting married this summer at Channels.

Wedding Photography for Cherilyn & Antony – St Bartholomews Church, Wickham Bishops & Channels

We were delighted to be asked to photograph Cherilyn and Antony’s Wedding.  We arrived at Channels Cottage where Cherilyn, her family and Bridesmaids were getting ready.  It was our first visit to Channels Cottage and we were impressed.  After photographing details and the girls getting ready we took a few more portraits in the lounge before leaving to go to St Bartholomew Church, Wickham Bishops.  Antony and his Groomsmen were greeting Guests but in between times we took a few pictures of them before they went into Church. Cherilyn arrived shortly afterwards and the church service began.  Cherilyn and Antony had arranged for the use of the Church Hall for their Guests after the ceremony, so they could enjoy mulled wine whilst we created some photographs for Cherilyn and Antony in the church as it was raining outside.  We took a variety of pictures around the church of Cherilyn and Antony, with the atmosphere of the Christmas church-wickham-bishops Luckily as we left the Church after the family groups, the rain had stopped, just right for confetti!  Fortunately, it wasn’t raining either when we arrived at Channels, so with a change of footwear for Cherilyn, pictures outside it was!  We managed a few nice picturs under the barn before walking back past the lake to greet their Guests in the Essex an everybody picture outside the Wedding Breakfast commenced.  After the Speeches it was nice to get a few shots of Cherilyn and Antony in the main Barn before the start of their evening celebrations.  Later and after the First Dance we finished our coverage of Chereilyn and Antony’s Wedding with a couple of night shots.  A extra special ‘thank you’ goes to Cherilyn and Antony for being such a relaxed couple, smiling continously, and we loved the quote ‘ so pleased to go outside’.wedding-photographer-essex-channels


Pre-Wedding Pictures

It was a beautifully sunny morning when we met Cherilyn and Anthony for a walk along the River Walk in Witham for their pre-wedding pictures.  After the rain of the previous few days we were fortunate not to need our wellies!  It was great to see Cherilyn and Anthony again as they had booked us as their Wedding Photographers in early 2011.  Cherilyn and Anthony are getting married at Channels Golf Club later this pictures


Wedding Photography for Kate and Jonathan at Channels

The weather for Kate and Jonathan’s Wedding Day was lovely sunshine, despite a cooling wind at times.  Kate got ready at Channels Lodge and everything was running smoothly.  As Kate was ready in good time, she was able to take advantage of our skills to produce natural lit portraits of her, which we enjoyed doing and achieved some lovely results.  The Civil Ceremony was followed by a few essential family group combinations in front of the fountain.  Whilst the Guests were having their Drinks, we took Kate and Jonathan for a few fun and relaxed pictures of themselves.  After the Wedding Breakfast we took a couple of night shots and finished our coverage of their Wedding with the First Dance and pictures of their Evening Guests.
