Wedding Photography Testimonial – The Old Rectory

We were delighted to receive these kind words from Catherine and Jamie, who were married in December 2014 at The Old Rectory, Dunton:-

“Thank you to you and Sandra for all the fantastic photos, the album is perfect and you have captured every moment.  We love the little books and calendars and have been giving them out to our Guests.

You both did a wonderful job on the day and we would happily recommend you to friends.”

The Old Rectory Wedding Photography for Catherine & Jamie

The Old Rectory, Dunton, was the chosen Wedding Venue for the winter Wedding of Catherine and Jamie. On the morning of their Wedding we arrived at Catherine’s Parents’ house to cover the final bridal preparations.  All things were going well and they all seemed relaxed and enjoying the occasion.  After taking a few detail and accessory pictures, it was time for the bridesmaids to get dressed.  It was then Catherine’s turn to get dressed, helped by her Mum.  Catherine’s Bridesmaids had not seen the dress so when Catherine walked into the room, some lovely moments were captured, she looked amazing!Wedding Photographer Essex The cars had arrived whilst we were taking the portrait pictures so afterwards we all went outside for some shots with the cars, then we left them to go the Venue.  Jamie was chatting with a few Guests when we arrived at The Old Rectory, so before many more arrived we took Jamie and his Best Man, Simon, for their pictures.  Catherine arrived a little while later in the glorious sunshine and made her way into the Manor House for the Civil Ceremony. After exchanging their vows, Catherine and Jamie went outside The Old Rectory for a couple of pictures before leaving for a quick drive in the classic American car . The beautiful weather allowed the Guests to mingle outside for the Drinks Reception for a short while, awaiting the return of Catherine and Jamie. It seemed a great opportunity to take an ‘Everybody’ picture with a difference with all the guests grouped around the  car. We moved swiftly onto the requested family group pictures before the fun pictures. The Old Rectory Dunton Wedding PhotographerThe late afternoon sun kept us all warm (ish)! Catherine and Jamie wanted to make the most of the wonderful weather so we quickly got on with their together pictures around the grounds of The Old Rectory.

Once Catherine and Jamie’s evening Guests arrived, they cut their Wedding Cake before their First Dance.  A brilliant rehearsed First Dance!Wedding Photographer EssexAfter taking a few evening pictures of their Guests, our day ended with some nightime pictures.  A wonderful December Wedding and a lovely couple.


Wedding Photography Friern Manor, Dunton, for Laura & David

Before we could do the Wedding Photography at Friern Manor, our first port of call on the morning of Laura and David’s Wedding was arriving at Laura’s Parents’ house.  Following the trail of excitement led us us up two flights of stairs to the room where Laura was getting ready.  A lovely room, with the added natural light from the skylight and a view to the church.  That said, with Laura, her Bridesmaids, her Mum, Make-up Artists, David from Rideout and ourselves, it was a touch busy and tight at times!Friern Manor, Essex wedding photographer

After capturing the getting ready pictures the girls put on their dresses and assisted Laura with hers.  Laura’s Bridal portraits and family pictures were taken downstairs and we just had enough time to take a few pictures outside with the Bridesmaids and the car.  St Andrew’s Church, Hornchurch was where Laura and David were to be married and David and his Groomsmen arrived shortly after us.  With a few pictures of all of them taken, we left them to greet the Wedding Guests whilst we took some candid pictures. Not long after, Laura arrived and made her entrance into the Church. Friern Manor, Essex wedding photos

Then Laura and David cut their Wedding cake before their First Dance.  A nice rewarding day!     Documentry wedding photography
