Fennes Wedding Photography for Natalie & Craig

Fennes Wedding Photography for Natalie & Craig

The wonderful Fennes was the choice of Wedding Venue for Natalie and Craig’s Wedding. An outside Ceremony was what Natalie and Craig were wishing for, so it was fingers crossed the weather would hold. Natalie was getting ready upstairs with the help of her Bridesmaids, so first of all we went to see them. Craig was getting ready in the Bridal Cottage with his son Max, and when they were in the final stages of getting ready we were there to take the pictures. Prior to Natalie and Craig’s Wedding Day, Natalie had dislocated her Collar bone so she was trying not to use her arm very much! Once the men were ready they had a few pictures taken outside Fennes before they went about their duties.

The Guests were seated and with everyone in place it was time for Natalie to walk the short distance to the Gazebo. Natalie and Craig’s dog led the way, carrying the rings! The rain stayed away, just!Fennes Recommended Wedding Photographer After the Ceremony the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception with some going inside and others staying outside eating ice cream! Later we got on with taking the requested family group pictures followed by a few pictures of Natalie and Craig around the grounds. Natalie wanted to be held up for a picture, the men and Max did this very  carefully! Wedding Photographer FennesThe Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion, followed by the Speeches. After the Speeches there was a little time before the start of the evening celebrations for a few relaxed pictures of Natalie and Craig in the Gold Room and Red Room at the front of the House. The cutting of the cake followed and then Natalie and Craig took to the dance floor for their First Dance.  Our day ended with an evening pictures of Natalie and Craig on the Bridge. A lovely day!

Fennes Wedding Photography – Leah & Christopher

Fennes Wedding Photography

It was a pleasure to photograph Leah and Christopher’s Wedding which was held at Fennes in the late summer.  The Fennes Estate looked a picture as always and whilst waiting for Leah to arrive we photographed the setting. Christopher arrived and made his way to Fennes Cottage where he got dressed.  Leah arrived shortly afterwards with her hair done and only the final touch up of her make-up needed. We worked with David of Rideout Productions who is one of the best wedding film makers anywhere. After taking pictures of Leah’s Dress and Accessories, Leah and the Bridesmaids put on their dresses. Fennes Wedding Photography Chris and his Groomsmen had their pictures taken in front of Fennes just before the Guests started to arrive.  Leaving Chris to greet the Guests it was time for Leah’s pictures upstairs.  The girls were so relaxed, giggling away!Fennes Wedding Photos After capturing the moments when Leah’s Dad entered the room, we finished off with taking a few pictures of Leah.  Sue (a gem! – Fennes’ front of house) arrived stating time was up! With the Bridesmaids leading the way, Leah taking her Father’s arm followed them into the Pavilion.  After the Ceremony, everybody went outside for a few requested family pictures before socialising during the Drinks Reception, with the String Quartet providing the music.  Leah and Chris wanted lots of casual pictures taken and they were not disappointed, we were spoilt for choice! For Leah and Chris’ pictures we went over to the bridge.  The ground was soft so Leah made the right choice to change into her ‘Hunter’ wellies and not spoil her wonderful shoes! Fennes Wedding PhotographerAfter the confetti pictures the Wedding Breakfast was in the Pavilion and was followed by the Speeches.  We great great moments captured in the speeches!  There was time before the cake cutting and First Dance for a little time with Leah and Chris for a few pictures in the Gold and Red rooms.  A beautiful day provided a nice sunset as well. Fennes approved Wedding PhotographerLater, finishing off with some informal pictures of Leah sand Chris’ evening Guests ended our day.  A wonderful day of Fennes wedding photography.

Wedding Photography for Lisa & Mark at Fennes

Lisa and Mark chose the lovely Fennes Estate, Bocking, for their Civil Ceremony and Reception. The girls were busy with their final preparations in the house whilst Mark had arrived with his Best Man and Ushers, unfortunately, not bringing the Wedding Rings with them!  Not to worry, plans were soon in place to get them, however the Registrars needed to leave on time  for another Wedding! Lisa, after being told of this, was amazingly chilled!  The rings arrived moments before the Ceremony so everything turned out fine and we captured some lovely pictures.  After the Ceremony we took a few family pictures before taking Lisa and Mark onto the bridge.  It was a dry day but a little bit damp underfoot so Lisa and Mark stood mostly on the bridge, rather than around the grounds.  Following the Wedding Breakfast we took a few pictures of Lisa and Mark in the Gold Room before a night shot, ending with First Dance pictures.Wedding Photograph at Fennes, Essex

Wedding Photography for Natasha & Paul at The Fennes Estate

Our day started at Fennes, Bocking, where Natasha, and her Bridesmaids were having their hair and make-up done.  Everyone was busy with final preparations and it was nice to be there to capture these special moments.  Time was flying by and after taking a couple of  pictures David went ahead to St. Mary’s Church, Bocking, for Paul’s pictures with his Best Man and Ushers.  I decided to stay behind with Hart Videography and capture the action pictures.  As always the warm welcome by Canon Philip Need of St. Mary’s Church greeted Natasha as she arrived at the Church.  After the church service we took a few photographs outside and confetti pictures before returning to Fennes.  After giving Natasha and Paul some time to relax we photographed the requested family pictures, before having another short break, before taking them for a little while for their photographs around the beautiful grounds of The Fennes.  Following the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches, we took a few pictures of the happy couple before the First Dance.Wedding Photo - The Fennes Estate
