Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photography for Lucy & Joe

Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photography for Lucy and Joe was on a beautiful Spring Day. Our day started at Crowne Plaza Resort Five Lakes.Lucy and Joe were both getting ready. After saying ‘hello’ and a few words with Lucy and the girls, David went off to see Joe. I stayed with the Lucy and the girls and captured the action as it happened as well as taking pictures of the details and accessories. There was a lot going on but all was calm and collected. Joe had a couple of pictures taken before he and his Groomsmen left to go  to St. Peters Church, Great Totham.Recommended Wedding Photographer Layer Marney Whilst this was happening  Lucy and the girls were on the balcony in the room with their glasses of champagne having their picture taken before getting dressed. It was important for  Lucy to see her Father’s reaction when she was dressed and the time as always was going very fast. With the help of her Mum and Bridesmaids this was achieved quickly and we had a little time for a few other pictures before we had to leave. St Peter’s Church, Great Totham was where the marriage was taking place and once we arrived we took some Guest arrival pictures, as well as a few of Joe and his Groomsmen.St Peter's Church Great Totham Wedding PhotographerWaiting at the Church were the Flowergirl Estelle-Rose and Ben,the Pageboy, who were eager to see Lucy arrive at the Church gate.  After getting a glimpse of her they rushed back to the Church Door to surprise her. The String Quartet played as Lucy then took her Father’s arm and went into the Church.St Peter's Church Great Totham Wedding Photographer Outside the Church after the service Lucy and Joe just wanted a few pictures taken  as they wanted to get back to Layer Marney. The Guests climbed aboard the Layer Marney Bus as Lucy and Joe were driven to Layer Marney Tower.  The Drinks Reception was held outside in front of the Tower so the Guests took a drink and when Lucy and Joe arrived at the bottom gate they made their way down there.  Lucy and Joe wanted to walk upto the Tower  with the Guests blowing bubbles over them and this is what happened.Some nice pictures.Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photography Lucy and Joe had time to spend with their Guests during the afternoon as well as us taking the requested family group pictures. During the afternoon Alan Nunn, the Magician and Arioso String Quartet provided the entertainment.  Later whilst we took Lucy and Joe for a walk around the grounds of Layer Marney the children plus their Mums and Dads went into the Barn to see the lambs.  If wanted they could give the lambs their milk which some did. When we returned the Guests made their way into the Long Gallery for the Wedding Breakfast.  Lucy and Joe were announced in and they took their seats at the top table ready for the meal to be served. The Speeches followed and once this were finished we made a dash outside for the sunset.  Phew! We just made it in time for some nice pictures. Recommended Wedding Photographer Layer MarneyWe finished with some evening pictures in front of the Tower before going inside.  The Band was ready so Lucy and Joe took to the dance floor for their First Dance. After taking a few informal group pictures of the evening it was time for us to say our ‘goodbyes’. A long day but a most rewarding day and a nice Wedding. It was nice to see Julia of W. Flowers and to meet Michelle of Bumblebee bridal (little did we know at the time we would be seeing and working with each other on several Weddings this year!)

 
 
 

Barn Brasserie Wedding Photography for Susannah & Keane

Barn Brasserie Wedding Photography for Susannah & Keane

Before the Wedding of Susannah and Keane at The Barn Brasserie, Great Tey, we visited The Crowne Plaza, Colchester.  Susannah was getting ready there, everybody was relaxed and preparations were going well. Capturing a flavour of the day’s happenings was our aim.Essex Wedding Photographer Emily, Susannah’s daughter and the Flowergirls, Ruby and Susie were soon ready and we were able to take a few pictures of them in the adjoining room. Susannah was ready shortly after and following a couple of photos we left them to make our way to The Barn at Great Tey. We met with Keane and his Brother, Damien and took their pictures outside before the Guests arrived. This Autumn day went very well with the colours Susannah and Keane chose for their Wedding. Whilst waiting for Susannah to arrived we took a few Guest arrival pictures. The rain started just as Susannah arrived so under the shelter of umbrellas she was quickly ushered into the room to see the Registrars.  We had a few minutes afterwards to get a couple of Bridal portraits. The Civil Ceremony took place in the Barn and once everybody was seated, Susannah made her way in escorted by Emily. Following the Ceremony, Susannah and Keane greeted their Guests and enjoyed the Drinks Reception and Canapés. Barn Brasserie Wedding Photography As the weather was not playing ball we had to take the requested family group pictures inside.  Fortunately, these Group pictures were not too big so we found space in the bar to do these. Later Susannah and Keane were quite happy to go outside for a few pictures of them. It was a warm day and the rain was on and off, we decided to chance it! It worked well, happy with a few pictures we returned to the Guests. An ‘everybody’ picture was wanted which we managed to do inside with the aid of our lighting kit.

As the rain had stopped Susannah and Keane had a couple of evening pictures taken outside including them being covered with rose petals.Essex Wedding Photographer After cutting their Wedding Cake, Susannah and Keane had their First Dance.
