Wedding Photography The Reid Rooms – Lucy & Richard

It was nice to be back at The Reid Rooms, Margaret Roding, as it has been a while since we have photographed there. Lucy and Richard chose to have their Wedding Ceremony as well as their Wedding Reception at this popular Venue.  Lucy with her family and Bridesmaid, were getting ready in the superb Marks Hall Farmhouse.  Meeting Lucy upstairs we were greeted with excitement, calmness and plenty of time! We captured some lovely ‘moment’ images during the getting ready stages as well the accessory shots especially the beautiful bouquets, which Lucy had made. Richard was having a few pictures with his Best Man and Ushers in the Courtyard before Richard went for his Registrars interview. After a couple of pictures in the room, Lucy’s Dad greeted her at the bottom of the stairs and then made her way into the Lounge, for her bridal portraits. It was a glorious Spring day and Lucy looked a picture as she then made her way to the Ceremony Room. Following the Civil Ceremony, Lucy and Richard led their Guests into the Courtyard for the Drinks Reception.Wedding photographer essex To prevent too many people squinting, we took advantage of the sun disappearing behind a cloud for a few minutes to start the group pictures before everybody enjoyed socialising in the sun again. We took Lucy, Richard and the Bridal Party for some fun pictures followed by a stroll around the grounds for Lucy and Richard’s photography essexreid rooms wedding photographyWe arranged the confetti throwing just prior to  the Wedding Breakfast. Thank you to Lucy and Richard for inviting us to join them for the meal which was excellent! The Speeches followed and we captured some brilliant moments. Afterwards Guests enjoyed the evening sunshine outside in the Courtyard and we took the opportunity of whisking Lucy and Richard away for a few minutes for a couple of evening pictures.  With their Evening Guests arriving, the Band ready, it wasn’t long before Lucy and Richard took to the dance floor for their First Dance.  After capturing this and a few evening Guest pictures it was time for us to leave.  A lovely couple and a wonderful day! Essex Wedding Photography


Wedding Photography Maidens Barn for Helen & William

Wedding Photography Maidens Barn – We were pleased to be asked to photography Helen and William’s Autumn Wedding at Maidens Barn, Dunmow. Helen was getting ready in the superb Farmhouse and preparations were well underway when we arrived. After photographing these, it wasn’t long before William and his Groomsmen arrived.  With the weather holding David went off to photograph them outside the Barn whilst I stayed in the Farmhouse.  Shortly afterwards Helen, her Parents and Bridesmaids were all ready for a few pictures.  The Farmhouse provided some nice spots for Helen’s portraits before it was time for the Civil Ceremony. With the Guests seated in the Barn, Helen entered with her Father accompanied by her Bridesmaids, Flowergirls and Pageboy. After the Ceremony, Helen and William led their Guests to the Drinks Reception and socialised for a little while.  With the rain holding off and making use of the covered areas around Maidens Barn we took the requested family group pictures. A Magician entertained the Guests during the afternoon and after Helen and Guy had been shown some tricks, we took them for a quick walk around Maidens Barn for their pictures.  Not having much time to spare as the rain was threatening we managed to achieve some nice images with the Autumn colours, just before the shower! Confetti pictures followed before the start of the Wedding Breakfast. Speeches were after the meal.  When it was time for the Best Man’s Speech, it was delivered by Oliver, as he was the Best Man and assisted by Gemma, his wife, who happened to be Helen’s Matron of Honour!  Being there to capture the emotions was wonderful, even though it  was a touch difficult for us as we were crying with laughter and having a job to see through our cameras! A superbly funny speech! Evening Guests arrived a little while later and we took a few evening pictures before the cake cutting and First Dance.  Our day ended with some night pictures of Helen and Guy outside.  A lovely day!
