Fennes Wedding Photography – Chrissy & Mick

Fennes Wedding Photography – Chrissy and Mick chose the wonderful Fennes for their Spring Wedding this year. Chrissy was getting ready in the Bride’s Room when we arrived, hair and make up well underway.

Mick was finishing off his preparations downstairs so after saying ‘hello’ to Chrissy, David  went to find out how things were going. Once the men were ready they had some pictures taken outside. ‘His’ and ‘Her’s’ cars were parked in front of Fennes, ready for pictures now and later. Chrissy was soon ready for her pictures.Fennes Recommended Wedding Photographer

The Wedding Ceremony

Chrissy and Mick’s grandchildren were downstairs waiting to play their part in the Wedding. After Chrissy’s meeting with the Registrars it was time for the Ceremony. The Wedding Ceremony was held in the Pavilion and the children led the way before Chrissy taking herDad’s arm entered the room. After the Ceremony everyone went outside for the Drinks Reception. It was such a lovely day weather wise, just right for everyone to enjoy themselves around the grounds of Fennes. Fennes Wedding Photography It was great to be outdoors, the garden games were out for everyone to play with. A lovely afternoon, filled with lots of laughter and fun. After a few requested pictures during the afternoon, we took Chrissy and Mick for a short walk around the grounds, amongst the bluebells and on the bridge. Confetti pictures were before the Wedding Breakfast and after the meal it was time for the Speeches.  Fennes Recommended Photographer

The Evening Celebrations

The evening light afterwards was right for a few more pictures later on. During the evening we took some informal pictures capturing the enjoyment of the day. Chrissy and Mick cut their Wedding Cake before their First Dance then Guests joined them on the dance floor. The sunset was glorious, not to be missed! Afterwards Chrissy and Mick returned to their Guests to continue the celebrations. Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesCongratulations Chrissy and Mick on your Wedding!

Wedding Photography at Fennes for Katie & Daniel

Wedding Photography at Fennes for Katie & Daniel

Katie and Daniel booked us to provide their wedding photography at Fennes.  It was nice to be back at this wonderful and popular venue.

Arriving at Fennes the girls were busily getting ready upstairs in the house and Daniel and his Groomsmen were getting ready at Fennes as well so David and I split to cover all the preparations. Katie and Daniel were very relaxed about their Wedding especially as where their children were concerned. Belle, their daughter, was with the girls and Jake, their son was with Daniel and the Groomsmen. Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesPreparations were going well and when Daniel was ready with his Groomsmen, they had some pictures taken. Daniel then went to see the Registrars and then socialised with the Guests. Once Katie was ready we took some pictures upstairs. Katie’s Father was waiting for her to come down the stairs and we were there to capture this special moment when it happened.

The Ceremony and Reception

After meeting with the Registrars they took their places in the Pavilion. The Bridesmaids and Belle, the Flowergirl, went first, followed by Katie and her Dad. Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesAfter the Ceremony everyone went outside as the weather was nice. During the Drinks Reception we took the requested family pictures followed by some fun Bridal Party pictures. Jake, the Pageboy enjoyed helping David take the pictures! Katie and Daniel’s ‘together’ photos were taken during the afternoon as well. Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerThe Guests threw confetti over Katie and Daniel in the Gold Room just before the Guests were called into the Pavilion for the Wedding Breakfast. Katie and Daniel had a few minutes to themselves before they made their entrance into the Pavilion. After the Wedding Breakfast it was time for the Speeches. An couple of additional Speeches were made. Katie delivered one and so did Grace, Daniel’s daughter. They both did very well.

The Evening Reception

There was a short time before the start of the evening celebrations so we took Katie and Daniel for a short while for a few more pictures around Fennes including  a glorious sunset picture. Before their First Dance later Katie threw her bouquet. Sparklers, night bridge shots finished our coverage of Katie and Daniel’s Wedding a little later on.Fennes Wedding Photographer A great couple, a lovely family, and a most rewarding day with some lovely unexpected shots.

Fennes Outdoor Wedding for Kelly & Ben

Fennes Outdoor Wedding for Kelly & Ben

It was a beautiful day for Kelly and Ben’s Fennes Outdoor Wedding. Both Kelly and Ben were getting ready at Fennes so  David and I went our separate ways to photograph the preparations. In both camps preparations were going well. The Flowergirl, Ophelia,  was happy drawing and colouring whilst watching the preparations, waiting patiently for her turn to get dressed.

Once Ben and his Groomsmen were ready they came over to the House. After Ben had opened his present from Kelly he had a few pictures taken with his Best Man and Ushers. Upstairs, Kelly and her Bridesmaids were getting dressed with Mum assisting Kelly and were all soon ready for some pictures. Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes

The Ceremony

Guests who had been socialising outside and others who were arriving made their way to the area for the Ceremony. Ben escorted Kelly’s Mother over to the Gazebo for the Ceremony as Kelly came down the stairs and was greeted by her Father. After seeing the Registrars, Kelly and the girls had a few minutes before leaving the Gold Room and going outside. Some lovely pictures against a wonderful backdrop as they joined everybody.

The Reception

After the Ceremony everyone enjoyed the Drinks Reception entertained by the String Quartet. Timings were fine allowing time for Kelly and Ben to socialise as well as taking their requested pictures. A nice relaxing afternoon gave us time to take a variety of pictures but without keeping Kelly and Ben for long periods of time away from their Guests.  Before the Wedding Breakfast the Guests showered Kelly and Ben in confetti.

After the Wedding Breakfast it was time for the Speeches. Once these were finished as it was such a lovely evening, the light was good we went outside for a few more pictures.  Finishing off as we returned to the Pavilion we took a couple of pictures in the house.Classic posed wedding pictures in Fennes red room After the evening Guests had arrived it was time for cutting the Wedding Cake and the First Dance. Kelly and Ben were joined on the dance floor by their Guests.

Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate for Beth & Alex

Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate for Beth & Alex

It was a nice day when we arrived to be Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate for Alex and Beth’s  Wedding. We arrived early at Fennes as Beth   was getting ready there before the Church Wedding at St Mary’s Church, Bocking. Beth was upstairs in the Bridal Changing Rooms with her Bridesmaids and all was calm and collected.   We got on with taking pictures of Beth’s accessories and details whilst capturing images of the final preparations.

It wasn’t long before Beth and the Bridesmaids were dressed and ready for some photographs. After a couple of pictures upstairs we went downstairs and into the Gold Room. It is really nice when there are no Guests inside the House as we are able to take some pictures in the downstairs rooms before leaving for a Church Wedding. With the pictures taken we left Beth to go to the Church.

St Mary’s Bocking

Alex and his Groomsmen were there carrying out their duties we were able to interrupt them just for a few minutes to take a few pictures.St Mary's Church Bocking Wedding Photographer We took some Guests arrival pictures coming up the path and into the Church before Beth arrived. At the Church Tippi, the Flowergirl, joined Beth, her Father and the Bridesmaids.St Mary's Church Bocking Wedding Photographer Beth and her Father followed the Bridesmaids into the Church for the service. It was a nice service and when it was finished everybody exited the Church for a few quick family pictures.  Beth and Alex then walked down the path being showered by confetti as they went. Returning to Fennes, we got on with the car pictures before the Guests arrived.

The Drinks Reception followed outdoors with the weather holding. Alex and Beth wanted to have plenty of time to spend with their Guests and that is exactly what they had. During the afternoon we took a few smaller group pictures. We spent a few minutes with Beth and Alex taking their pictures as the forecast was not looking too good for later. Wedding Photographer Fennes Estate Then the rain came just before we could get the ‘everybody’ shot done. Thankfully Fennes has lots of space and with the help of the staff we managed to improvise just prior to the Wedding Breakfast.

The Wedding Breakfast

The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and this was followed by the Speeches. Afterwards there was Crazy Golf and other games in the Banqueting Hall to keep the adults and children entertained. Later Beth and Alex cut their Wedding Cake and then took to the dance floor for their First Dance. The weather prevented us taking Beth and Alex outside for some evening pictures so we made use of the steps and took the ‘heart’ picture. Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerHappy with our pictures we then said our ‘goodbyes’. It was a lovely day and nice to see Stephanie (Alex’s sister)  and Tim, whose Wedding we photographed 21 years ago at Leez Priory!

Fennes Wedding Photographers For Najette & Bobby

Fennes Wedding Photographers

The sun was shining brightly when we arrived to be Fennes Wedding Photographers for the the Wedding of Najette and Bobby. After saying ‘hello’ to Naj and Tors, Naj’s Matron of Honour. David went off to find Bobby and the men. Naj was getting ready in the Bridal Changing Rooms helped by her friends. Bobby was getting ready in the Cottage.

Preparations were going well for both of them so after capturing a flavour of these Bobby and his Groomsmen were soon ready for some pictures. Making the most of the summer sunshine these were taken outside although we love taking pictures inside at Fennes as well! When these were finished they all mingled with the Guests. Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerMeanwhile Naj was almost ready for her pictures. Her Father came upstairs to see her before we took a few pictures and then it was time for Najette to go downstairs heading to the Ceremony. Whilst this was happening the Guests were taking their seats outside for the outside Ceremony.

The Ceremony

The weather was holding, just! Naj then took her Father’s arm and made her way out of the Gold Room and into the grounds of Fennes. The Ceremony started and the clouds gathered! A couple of claps of thunder in the distance followed but fortunately the rain held off! Essex Wedding Photographer FennesAs the Ceremony finished the sun re-appeared and everyone enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the grounds. After having a little time to socialise we then got on with taking  the requested family pictures. Naj and Bobby’s ‘together’pictures were taken during the afternoon around Fennes.  We did take umbrellas with us but only needed them when we finished their pictures. Good timing! Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes

The Wedding Breakfast

After the confetti it was time for the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches. Before the start of the evening celebrations there was time for everyone to continue with socialising in the Pavilion or take a wander around the gardens of Fennes. It was during this time and the weather was fine we took Naj andBobby for a few minutes for a few evening pictures around the Venue and Naj and Bobby were happy to try out a couple of different pictures that we had been thinking of.Fennes Wedding Photographers Once the Evening Guests had  arrived  Naj and Bobby cut their Wedding Cake. Their First Dance followed before they were joined on the dance floor by their Guests. Our final pictures of Naj and Bobby’s Wedding Day was of the sunset.
