Gaynes Park Wedding Photography for Colinda & Nigel

Gaynes Park, Epping, was the chosen Wedding Venue for Colinda and Nigel’s Wedding Day.  Gaynes Park, looked wonderful in the brilliant sunshine as we arrived on the morning of the Wedding.  The Apple Loft Cottage was where Colinda and her family and Bridesmaids were getting ready. Preparations were going well especially as Colinda and her Parents had been at Gaynes Park most of the morning dressing the Venue with flowers, Colinda is a florist. Meanwhile Nigel and his Groomsmen were having a few pictures taken in the Gather Barn before many of the Guests arrived. After taking a few accessory and getting ready pictures of the girls, there was just enough time to take a few formal pictures before it was time for the Civil Ceremony.  Colinda on her father’s arm made the walk through the gates of the walled garden and into the Orangery for the Ceremony.  Afterwards Colinda and Nigel led their Guests outside for the Drinks Reception.  A little while later we took the family group pictures and a few pictures of Colinda and Nigel in the walled garden.  With all the guests enjoying the wonderful weather we captured some relaxed pictures during the afternoon.  As everybody made their way over to the Gaynes Park Mill Barn for the Wedding Breakfast, it was a good opportunity for the group picture of the whole party and for confetti to be thrown over Colinda and Nigel.  The barn looked fabulous as the Wedding Guests entered the Barn and we made the most of some extra time with the Bride and Groom.  Speeches were after the Wedding Breakfast and later on we took Colinda and Nigel for a few minutes for some pictures under the Pergola as it was illuminated.  Part of Nigel’s job is hiring dance floors which he of course did for this wedding and it looked superb.  After Colinda and Nigel’s First Dance, everybody took to the floor for the dancing.  Happy with our pictures, a little while late we took our leave.  A lovely day!
