Vaulty Manor Wedding Photography for Joanne & Barry

Vaulty Manor Wedding Photography for Joanne & Barry

Our Vaulty Manor Wedding Photography for Joanne and Barry started in the morning at Joanne and Barry’s home. Jo was getting ready there with her Bridesmaids. All preparations were running smoothly and after taking pictures of Joanne’s dress and accessories, the girls got dressed.  Joanne’s Mother and Father arrived  with Mum then assisting Joanne with the final preparations.

Vaulty Manor Wedding PhotographerAfter a few family and girls’ pictures we left them to go to Vaulty Manor.  The men were all there so we got on with taking a few pictures of them outside.  Wedding Photographer Vaulty ManorWhen it was time,  everyone made their way inside for the Civil Ceremony. Joanne arrived soon after and once she had seen the Registrars took her Father’s arm and with the Bridesmaids leading the way, followed them into Vaulty Manor. It was nice to see Susie (Registrar) again, we photographed her Wedding at Stock Brook Manor in 2006 and have also taken family pictures since. Civil Ceremony Wedding PhotographerAfter the Ceremony, the Guests went outside with hands full of confetti and waited for Joanne and Barry to appear. This they did, so after being covered in confetti we got on with taking the requested group pictures. Some fun Bridal pictures followed before Joanne and Barry had a few minutes to talk to their Guests.  The forecast was not good, so we had to keep things moving and we were aware we needed to take Joanne and Barry for their pictures.  Making sure we had brollies to hand, we went off around the grounds, achieving some nice pictures in the daffodils.Vaulty Manor Wedding Photography Finishing their pictures, the rain started to fall, and by the time Joanne and Barry were walking back to Vaulty Manor, that signalled the end of outside pictures for the day! The Greeting Line preceded the Wedding Breakfast with the Speeches following. The Best Man’s Speech was superb, very amusing and we captured some great reactions. During the evening we took a few pictures of Joanne and Barry upstairs in between the arrival of their evening Guests. Before the First Dance Joanne and Barry cut their Wedding Cake, then the Guests joined them on the dance floor. Not long afterwards, it was time for us to say goodbye.  A lovely day!

Crabbs Barn wedding photographs – Suzanne & Adrian

Suzanne and Adrian’s summer wedding at Crabbs Barn was a lovely day.  Our day started at Suzanne and Adrian’s home where Suzanne was getting ready. Preparations were going well and Suzanne and the girls were very relaxed. They were enjoying getting ready and there was laughter in abundance! After taking some pictures of Suzanne with her Son, Mother, and Bridesmaids in the garden we left to go to Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon.

Crabbs Barn Recommended Wedding Photographer We met Adrian there with Alan, his Best Man. The Guests were arriving as we took a few pictures of Adrian.  After seeing the Registrars, Adrian went into the Barn with the Guests.  Suzanne arrived by car driven by another Adrian, this time of Vintage Dreams.  Suzanne’s Son, Lorcan accompanied her and walked with her into the venue. The moments when Suzanne came through the gate, not to be missed! After the Civil Ceremony in the Barn, Suzanne and Adrian went off for a short ride whilst the Wedding Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the grounds, allowing us to capture some informal pictures. When the happy couple returned they had some social time with their Guests before we took the requested family pictures.  Crabbs Barn looked a picture as always and Suzanne and Adrian ended up with nice pictures of them together in a beautiful setting. Before the meal was served Suzanne and Adrian greeted their Guests and the Speeches followed. Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographer The Speeches were very good with Lorcan’s causing much laughter. Afterwards,whilst waiting for the evening celebrations to begin, using the wonderful evening light, we took Suzanne and Adrian down the lane for a couple of pictures and some fun pictures, followed shortly by a sunset picture.

Location Engagement photoshoot

Location Engagement photoshoot

It was lovely to meet Kate and Mark again for their Location Engagement photoshoot.  We chose to meet met them at their Wedding Venue, Bradbourne House, East Malling, Kent, as we had not photographed there previously. The sun made a timely appearance to lift the pictures. This being a new Venue for us, it was good to have a look around ahead of  Kate and Mark’s Wedding Day so we would have an idea which locations we might use on the wedding day.

St Albans Cathedral Wedding Photography for Sophie & Steven

St Albans Cathedral Wedding – A privilege and delight to photograph a Wedding at this beautiful and stunning Venue. We were very pleased  to be asked to photograph Sophie and Steven’s Wedding at St. Albans Cathedral. Sophie and Steven were able to get married in St Albans Cathedral as they both went to University in the city.  Our day started at St. Michael’s, Manor Hotel in St Albans, where Sophie, her family and Bridesmaids were getting ready.  With lots going on there was much to photograph. Wedding Photographer Hertfordshire Once the Bridesmaids were ready we took a few pictures in the garden.  A breeze got up just as we were about to take some pictures of Sophie so we had to quickly find sheltered spot, not quite what we planned but we have to live with these things! Leaving them we then went to the Cathedral where  Steven was greeting some of the Guests as we arrived so in between we took Steven and his Groomsmen for their pictures.  It wasn’t long before the Bridesmaids arrived and waited with the Dean in the North Churchyard for the arrival of Sophie. With the Guests seated Sophie took her Father’s arm and made her entrance through the Pilgrim Door into the Cathedral and into the Lady Chapel.  A beautiful service followed allowing us to capture some lovely moments.  Sophie and Steven then led their Guests from the Lady Chapel to the West doors. Wedding Photographer Essex Outside, they then had a few minutes greeting their Guests before we took an everybody picture, followed by some requested family Groups.  Sophie and Steven were showered in rose petals before the guests left for the reception while the happy couple had a few pictures themselves in the Cathedral and around the grounds with David.  Meanwhile the Guests and I made their way to pick up the Routemaster bus  to the Wedding Reception at Shenley Cricket Club, Radlett. On arrival at Shenley Cricket Club the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception and it wasn’t long before Sophie and Steven arrived.  Grace, Sophie’s sister then entertained everybody with her wonderful singing, providing some emotional moments, captured of course! After catching up on a few small group shots it was soon time for the Wedding Breakfast held in the Marquee. Coverage of the Speeches followed before a break before the evening celebrations. This allowed us to take Sophie and Steven for a few moments for a some of them in the soft evening light.Hertfordshire Wedding PhotographerDuring the evening we took some informal pictures of their evening Guests as well as speaking to familiar faces that earlier in the day we didn’t have time to speak to. Sophie and Steven cut their Wedding Cake just before the First Dance and with a sunset completed we were happy with our work for the day, it was time for us to say goodbye. A wonderful day!

Following the Ceremony, Sian and Liam led their Guests outside to enjoy the Drinks Reception in the sunshine.Wedding Photographer Essex After a while we took the requested family group pictures but doing these in the minimum time as the temperature was rising!

Wedding Photography Hunters Meet, Hatfield Heath, for Mel & Ollie

Wedding Photography Hunters Meet – It was a wet start when we travelled to Mel and Ollie’s house for Mel’s final bridal preparations. When we arrived Mel was having the finishing touches to her hair and make-up, giving us time to photograph the details and accessories.  Once Mel was ready, a few pictures were taken of Mel and her Bridesmaids inside as it was still rather wet outside.  As luck would have it, when we were ready to leave for the Church, it had stopped raining and the sky was brighter.Essex Wedding Photographer

St Mary The Virgin Church, Debden was where we met Ollie and his Groomsmen and managed to get a few pictures of all of them before they continued to carry out their duties.   It wasn’t long before Mel and her Mother arrived in her Grandad’s classic Austin car and after a couple of pictures they entered the Church.

Following the service Mel and Ollie spent a few minutes talking to their Guests, then it was time to quickly get on with the requested family pictures as the clouds were threatening more rain.  Confetti followed the photographs before we all left for the Reception. Wedding Photographer Essex

When Mel and Ollie arrived at Hunters Meet Hotel, the Austin was driven into the Garden where their racing Mini car was, so they could have some special pictures taken. Making sure Mel and Ollie spent some time with their Guests, we spent our time getting some informal pictures.  Although the weather was fine the rain clouds were on their way again!  We took Mel and Ollie for their pictures, taking some other small group pictures before the ‘everybody’ shot was a good move.  No sooner as we had finished our last picture, the rain started!  How fortunate they were!  The heavens opened and continued for some time. With everybody inside it was time for the Wedding Breakfast followed by the Speeches before the evening Reception.  Later Mel and Ollie’s Evening Guests arrived and just before their First Dance we went onto Hatfield Heath itself for a few evening images, not quite the sunset we hoped for but a little colour in the clouds made up for it.  Essex Wedding Photographers

Our coverage of Mel and Ollie’s Wedding Day finished a little while later.

 
 
 

The Waterfront Dovercourt – Wedding Photography for Rebecca & Andrew

The Waterfront Dovercourt, is a new Wedding Venue for us and we were looking forward to Rebecca and Andrew’s Wedding with great anticipation.  Rebecca and Andrew originally wanted to book us for their Wedding on a different date but we were already booked, so they moved their date to one we could do! The pressure was on!  We arrived at Rebecca’s Parents’ house on the morning of the Wedding,  just before Rebecca returned from the Hairdressers.  With all of Rebecca’s accessories laid out we got on and photographed them for their book.  Rebecca’s Mum and Sister helped her get dressed and we captured some nice moment shots when the Flowergirls, Katelyn and Rebecca, and Pageboy, Reuben, saw Rebecca in her Wedding Dress.  Time was evaporating very quickly but we managed to take a few family pictures before leaving for the Church.

All Saints Church, Dovercourt was where Rebecca and Andrew were to be married.  Andrew, his Best Man and Ushers were busy with their duties but we managed to take a few pictures of them before taking some pictures of the Wedding Guests arriving.Essex Wedding Photographer

With everybody inside the Church, it was not long before Rebecca arrived.  Following the service we arranged some family group portraits  in the church grounds.  It was a beautifully hot day but we made sure we didn’t keep everybody standing around for any more time than was necessary for the photographs.  After the confetti pictures, Rebecca and Andrew and their guests, left for the Wedding Reception at The Waterfront Dovercourt.

Essex Wedding Photographer

After a couple of pictures with the car outside the Venue, Rebecca and Andrew went inside to get a break from the sun and to greet their Guests during the Drinks Reception. Their Guests were entertained by George, The Wedding Artist, a Caricaturist,who was superb!   After a little while Rebecca, Andrew and the Bridal Party crossed the road to the beach and we took a few fun pictures and a couple of Rebecca and Andrew by themselves.

It was during this time we took Rebecca and Andrew for a few more pictures before the evening Guests arrived and before the First Dance.  Wow!  What a fantastic rehearsed First Dance! Letting us in on their secret we provided them with some fabulous images! In our planning with Rebecca and Andrew before the day they requested a sunset picture at Harwich Pier which would be after the First Dance. We made sure our car had had a good clean, as that was the transportation to the Pier! We wanted these pictures as much as Rebecca and Andrew and thankfully neither of us were disappointed! In next to no time we were back to The Waterfront. Wedding Photographer Essex

A little while later it was time to say goodbye.  A lovely couple and thank you Rebecca and Andrew for inviting us to be part of your wonderful day.  As for The Waterfront Dovercourt it is a very nice new venue with friendly staff and we look forward to working there again.
