Parklands Quendon Hall Wedding Photography for Sarah & Gordon

This was a Parklands Quendon Hall Wedding for Sarah and  and Gordon earlier this year. We arrived at Parklands in the morning and went to see Sarah who was getting ready within the House in the Changing Rooms. Preparations were going well but it was busy with several Bridesmaids having hair and make up done. Gordon and his Groomsmen were getting ready at Parklands as well. Essex Wedding Photographer ParklandsAs soon as Gordon was ready we took a few pictures of him with his Groomsmen outside. They then greeted the Guests.

Once Sarah’s hair and make-up were finished Sarah got dressed.  As always the last hour goes so quickly but we managed to take a few pictures before Sarah was needed bythe Registrars.

The Outdoors Ceremony

The day was so hot the Guests were seated for the outdoor Ceremony very close to the time of the Ceremony, just before Sarah came downstairs. The Bridesmaids led the way outside, then Sarah took her Father’s arm and they followed. Parklands Wedding PhotographerAfter the Ceremony Sarah, Gordon and their Guests went to the fountain at the back of Parklands for the Drinks Reception. Sarah and Gordon spent a little time with their Guests before we took some family pictures and caught up with the pictures of Sarah and the girls. A little later on we took Sarah and Gordon to the lake but this was only for a short while as the sun was so strong and they were both too hot! Guests later threw confetti over Sarah and Gordon before they all sat down for the Wedding Breakfast. Wedding Photographer Parklands

The Wedding Breakfast and Evening

The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and after the meal the Speeches took place. When these were finished everyone mingled in the Pavilion as well as outside. During this time we took some evening pictures of the happy couple around the grounds as it was now a little cooler. Sarah and Gordon cut their Wedding Cake prior to the First Dance and afterwards it was time for the sunset. A nice one!

Susannah and Daniel booked us for Evening Wedding Photography when they were married at the popular Crabbs Barn earlier in the year.

The sun going down was a bonus and provided a nice setting. Daniel had a few pictures taken before going in to the Barn for the Ceremony.

Following the Ceremony for a few minutes we took Susannah and Daniel off for a few pictures whilst the Guests were served drinks. Susannah and Daniel had time to mingle with their Guests for a short time afterwards.

In the Barn we took a few requested family pictures. Joshua, Susannah and Daniel’s eighteen month old son had a few pictures as well.
