Rachel and Daniel had arranged to meet with us again one morning before their winter Wedding in December last year at Houchins. After a coffee and a chat about the details of their Wedding we went off to take a few pictures of them. Not having photographed at Houchins Wedding Venue before we were thoroughly looking forward to their Wedding.
A new wedding venue in North Essex close to Coggeshall. The lovely country setting of the venue is ideal for a bespoke wedding Reception or other family celebration. The venue was previously a restaurant and has an excellent large kitchen, lounge, dining and dancing areas! The gardens have country views which will be ideal for our style of photography. It looks fantastic for our signature sunset wedding shots! The Compasses Pattiswick is run by a highly experienced wedding event organiser Paul Gooding, who we have worked with many times previously. We look forward to our first commission at this venue.
It was a beautiful spring day for the Wedding of Melissa and Dave. Our day started at Melissa’s Parents’ home with the final bridal preparations which were going very well. With everybody ready we took a few pictures of Melissa, her Parents, the Flowergirls and Pageboy, before leaving to go to St. Peter’s Church for the ceremony. The church and grounds looked a picture in the lovely sunshine and as Dave and his Groomsmen arrived at the Church we took a few pictures of them. With everyone seated in the Church it was time for the flowergirls and pageboys to make their entrance into the Church followed by Melissa with her Dad. St Peter’s Church is beautiful and makes for some lovely photographs. Following the service Melissa and Dave let their Guests down the aisle.The guestts lined the path on both sides for the confetti throwing. Melissa and Dave wanted a few family group pictures taken at the Church which we did before leaving to go to the Reception at Marks Hall, Coggeshall. Whilst the Guests were arriving, Melissa, Dave and ourselves went for a short walk around the grounds and to the lakes. Melissa and Dave are a lovely couple full of enthusiasm and aided by the warm weather made for some great relaxed pictures. Although spoilt for choice as to the photographic opportunities, we only kept Melissa and Dave a minimum amount of time away for their Guests, hoping for a little time later on! Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception on the Terrace and we captured some nice images of the Bridesmaids and Pageboys in the garden. The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Coach House and followed by the Speeches. Playing a waiting game for the sunset resulted in some brilliant pictures as the evening Guests were arriving. A little while after the First Dance it was time for us to say goodbye. A brilliant day and thank you to Bouqui Garni for a super meal.
