Wedding Photography Crabbs Barn for Laura & Alex

We had the pleasure of providing wedding photography for Laura and Alex’s wedding at the wonderful Crabbs Barn. Meeting with Laura when we arrived there was a nice feel of relaxation with the girls getting ready without rushing.Recommended Wedding Photographer Crabbs Laura was having her hair finished, her Wedding Dress and accessories were out for us to photograph. As final preparations were going on Alex was out at the front of the Barn with his Groomsmen. When they were all ready we got on with taking their pictures. It was such a beautiful day and the setting for the outside Ceremony looked lovely.  Alex and his Groomsmen greeted the Guests as they arrived and they all mingled outside until it was time for them to be seated for the Ceremony.

Laura was ready with time to spare, great! Laura was wearing her Grandma’s veil and knowing this was extremely special we made sure this featured !Wedding Photographer Crabbs Barn

The Ceremony & Reception

When the Registrars’ meeting was completed, Laura, her Father and the Bridesmaids exited the Barn and made their way toward the Gazebo for the Ceremony.  Once the Ceremony was over the Guests followed Laura and Alex into the grounds for the Drinks Reception. Laura and Alex spent a nice time socialising with their Guests before we got on with the requested family pictures. These went smoothly and after Laura and Alex had a little social time we took them for a short walk around the Grounds.

Following their ‘together’ pictures, there was still time for Laura and Alex to mingle again before being showered in confetti. Following the Wedding Breakfast the Speeches followed.Wedding Photography Crabbs Barn Afterwards we managed to take Laura and Alex away for a few minutes for some evening pictures in the lane.Essex Wedding Photographer After a beautiful day a nice sunset!

Relaxed Pre-Wedding Pictures for Stacey & Craig

Relaxed Pre-Wedding Pictures for Stacey & Craig

Stacey and Craig came to see us one evening recently for some Relaxed Pre-Wedding Pictures. Firstly their visit was to chat and update our details of their Wedding Day. Afterwards we went for a short walk to take some pictures locally. As always this doesn’t take very long as our aim is to just get re-acquainted, find out more about our couples before their Wedding Day. It was a beautiful evening so we made use of the early evening sunlight, ending up with some nice results.  We are looking forward to Stacey and Craig’s Wedding at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon, soon.Relaxed Pre-Wedding Pictures Essex

Evening Wedding Photography at Crabbs Barn for Lauren & Ian

Crabbs Barn was the chosen Venue for Lauren and Ian’s Evening Winter Wedding. We arrived as Lauren was carrying out her final preparations in the Bridal Room at Crabbs Barn, where we took a few pictures. The Barn looked lovely and with all the details we made sure we photographed these before the Guests arrived. Ian was there in his uniform, so we took a couple of pictures of him as well. Once Lauren was ready, her Father came in to see her, before we got on with a few family pictures in the room. Crabbs Barn Recommended Wedding PhotographerThe Guests were seated in the Barn awaiting Lauren, so after the short walk around to the front of the Barn,Lauren made her entrance. After the Ceremony the Guests exited the Barn taking a handful of confetti with them.  Lauren and Ian went outside and their Guests showered them in confetti. Although it was a dry evening it was rather chilly so once this picture was taken everybody went inside to warm up and enjoy the Drinks Reception. A litttle while later we took a few requested family pictures in the barn followed by a few pictures of Lauren and Ian. For their pictures Lauren and Ian were more than happy to go outside by the gate and around the grounds. Evening Wedding Photography Crabbs BarnWe did take some pictures in the Barn as well. Before the meal everybody gathered in the main Barn for the Speeches. After these it was time for the meal.

Wedding Engagement Portraits for Louise and Gary

Wedding Engagement Portraits for Louise and Gary

Seeing Louise and Gary again a few months ago at Crabbs Barn Open Day they asked if they could have their pre-Wedding pictures taken at Louise’s Parents’ home.The reason being they wanted some pictures later in the year with the cherry blossom. We were happy with that, so it was left with Louise and Gary getting in touch with us when the blossom was out.  This they did!  Louise’s Parents had such a lovely garden so we used the setting for some other pictures as well. We had a nice time taking the pictures and chatting about their Wedding.  Louise and Gary’s Wedding at Crabbs Barn in the summer will be extra special to us as we have known Gary since he was 5 years old and is one of our son’s friends.

We were delighted when Sam e-mailed us in December last year about taking some family pictures. This was to be whilst Sam, Mike and daughter Rosie were over from Canada. We were Wedding Photographers for Sam and Mike, who were married at Crabbs Barn in 2011.  A couple of days after they were married they went travelling around the world.  They liked Canada so much they decided they wanted to live there! After finding an agreed date for taking the Environmental Family Portraits, we decided to meet at Hylands Park  one morning in December last year. Sam’s Mum, Dad, her Brother, his Wife and son joined us as well. Going for a walk around Hylands Park we found some nice areas for some pictures and the weather was good. Catching up with the family was wonderful and we had a lovely time.

A blue sky and fluffy white clouds greeted us on arrival at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon, for the Wedding of Sam and Craig.  Crabbs Barn looked a picture and Paul and the rest of the staff warmly welcomed us as always.  Sam arrived at the Bridal Suite with her hair and make up done, leaving just the final touches to complete.  Everyone was excited, rightly so! A little while later Craig arrived with his Best Man and Ushers and before they got underway with their duties they had a few pictures taken. Once Sam was ready we took a few pictures then assisted by her Bridesmaids and Flowergirl, they  walked around to the Barn.  After seeing the Registrars, it was time for the Civil Ceremony.

With the sun streaming in through the windows, Sam and Craig exchanged their Wedding vows. After the Ceremony. the Drinks Reception was held in Pavilion, where we took some informal pictures.  Clouds were gathering so we decided to get on with some requested Group pictures during that time as well.  Following these, keeping an eye on the weather and knowing Sam and Craig wanted their pictures around the splendid grounds of Crabbs Barn, we carried on with their ‘together’pictures.

In next to no time we completed these allowing a little more social time for Sam and Craig to enjoy.  After the ‘everybody’ picture it was time for the Wedding Breakfast.  Craig delivered his Speech prior to the meal being served as the rain arrived.  Good timing! The sun came out again during the Wedding Breakfast and with everything running smoothly there was sufficient time before the rest of the Speeches for a couple of sunset pictures.  Sam’s Mum’s Speech was followed by a Speech by the Best Man.
