Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers for Charlotte & Paul

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers for Charlotte & Paul

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers – We had the pleasure of photographing Charlotte and Paul’s Wedding in the Summer last year at St Peter’s Church, Great Totham and then at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon. It was an early start as we started off at Charlotte’s family home where she was getting ready. Preparations were underway and going well. After taking some pictures of details and accessories and a few getting ready pictures, Charlotte, her Parents and Bridesmaids  got ready. It was a lovely day albeit a touch windy but in the garden we were sheltered so we took a few pictures of them all. When we left to go to the Church,they all had a little time to themselves, except Michael, Charlotte’s Brother, who was an Usher and came with us to the Church. Paul was at the Church with his Groomsmen so we took a few pictures of them before they carried out their duties. As the Guests arrived they chatted for a little while before going into the Church. Charlotte and Paul arrived in  a Horse and Carriage not long after.

St Peter's Church Great Totham Charlotte and her Father had travelled from the family home to Tiptree where their Horse and Carriage was awaiting them.  Charlotte had arranged this but had kept it secret from her Father. Nigel was beaming ear to ear when he arrived as was Charlotte! Time for them to go into the Church. The service was extra special to Charlotte and Paul as this was carried out by  the family’s local Vicar from Braintree. After the service Charlotte and Paul exited the Church and were showered in confetti. Essex Wedding PhotographerCharlotte and Paul spent a few minutes with their Guests before we got on with taking the family Group pictures. It was windy but we were able to take some pictures outside the Church door as well as under the trees. . Charlotte and Paul then left the Church by Horse and Carriage and then halfway to Crabbs Barn they continued by car.Wedding Photographer Essex Crabbs Barn looked wonderful, on arrival the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the grounds. When Charlotte and Paul arrived, they had time to speak to their Guests and enjoy the Drinks Reception as well.  Charlotte and Paul’s pictures around the grounds were taken before the Receiving Line and Wedding Breakfast. Speeches followed the Wedding Breakfast and there was time for everybody to spend time outside enjoying the pleasant evening.  The Barn was set up for the evening celebrations and during this time we went for a short walk into the lane beside Crabbs Barn and also visited the cornfield.  Beautiful light and later on  a stunning Sunset.  The icing on the cake for us! Talking about cake, Charlotte and Paul cut their Wedding Cake before they took to the dance floor for their First Dance.Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers After capturing a few more memories of the evening we said our goodbyes.

Wedding Photography Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon for Victoria & Antony

Wedding Photography Crabbs Barn – Crabbs Barn was the chosen Venue for Victoria and Antony’s Wedding.  With the amount of rain we had in the morning we were so pleased it had all disappeared before we arrived at Crabbs Barn later on in the day.  At the Bridal Suite preparations were going well.  The Bridesmaids, Flowergirl and Pageboys stepped outside the room for a moment so we could photograph Vickies dress which they were not allowed to see until it was on! Afterwards they finished getting ready and when Vicky was ready we captured some lovely moments when they saw her dressed.

Wedding Photography Crabbs Barn – It was a lovely day with a bit of a breeze, when we arrived at Abi’s Mum’s house for the final bridal preparation pictures.  Whilst these were going on, David went to see Paul and the Groomsmen who were getting ready close by.  Everything was running smoothly and by the time David returned the flower girls were ready and not long afterwards so was everybody else.  With some family pictures taken it was time to leave for Plume Avenue United Reform Church.  Paul, his Best Men and Ushers had a few pictures taken before the arrival of Abi.  Making her entrance into the Church on her Mother’s arm we were able to get some nice pictures from the balcony as well as from the front of the church.  After the service Abi and Paul requested an everybody shot before going outside for the confetti pictures.  The Reception was held at the popular and superb Crabbs Barn in Kelvedon.  As we were there with Abi and Paul before most of the Guests we all went for a quick walk around Crabbs Barn for a few of their pictures.  During the Drinks Reception some family group pictures were taken, followed by some fun bridal party pictures.  After photographing the Speeches ,which followed the Wedding Breakfast, the weather and evening light was good so we took Abi and Paul for a walk in the lane achieving some relaxed pictures ending with a sunset picture. The evening reception began, Evening Guests arrived, and once the Band was set up, Abi and Paul took to the floor for their First Dance.  To finish our coverage of Abi and Paul’s Wedding Day we took a nightime picture of them outside the Barn.

Wedding Photography for Anne & Paul – Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon

The Crowne Plaza Resort, Five Lakes, was where Anne, and the girls were getting ready so it was there that we started our day.  Knowing that time would be short, we still managed to capture the moments to tell the story.  When we arrived at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon, Paul, his Best Man and Ushers were ready for their pictures, before they were required to be out of sight!  Following the Ceremony, Anne and Paul went for a short ride in the car whilst their Guests enjoyed the Drinks reception.  On their return and just as we had taken a couple of pictures by the car, the heavens opened!  This was forecast but it was slightly earlier than expected, and took a longer time to go!  After taking some informal pictures we decided to take some of the smaller family group pictures in the Pavilion followed by taking Anne and Paul into the Barn and other sheltered areas around Crabbs Barn for a few pictures of them.wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barn Although we work alot at Crabbs Barn and love it, we strive to give each couple different pictures and today was no exception, despite the weather!  In between the courses of the Wedding Breakfast the sun came out and Anne and Paul wanted to have a couple of pictures taken in the grounds which we did.  Once the Speeches had finished the larger family group pictures were taken before the evening Reception.wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs-barn With a sunset picture and a rainbow picture later, Anne and Paul’s Wedding Day certainly had variety!

Wedding Photography for Sam & Mike at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon

Our day started at Sam’s Parents’ house, where we took some pictures of Sam, her Parents and her special friends, who were helping her get ready for her special day.  Sam requested us to take pictures of the family cat, dog and tortoise, which resulted in the amusing sight of David being chased by the tortoise!  After a small Civil Ceremony at Crabbs Barn, more Guests joined them for the Drinks reception and pictures.  Following the Wedding Breakfast, we took a few pictures as the sun was setting, before the Evening Reception and First Dance. Music was provided by the band “Good Rockin Tonight”, who were excellent!  As Sam and Mike were going travelling three days after their Wedding and by working overtime we were able to produce a proof show before they went, which went down a treat!Wedding Photo - Crabbs Barn
