Forrester Park Wedding Photographyh – Carly’s Bridal preparations were well underway when we arrived to photograph them on the morning of her Wedding to Craig at St Bartholomews Church, Wickham Bishops. Whilst taking some accessories pictures as well as the ‘getting ready’pictures, not on the cards for the day, the heavens opened! Fortunately it didn’t last very long and after taking a few pictures of Carly with her Bridesmaids, Abi and Chelsea inside, we stepped outside for the rest. Leaving Carly, we went to St Bartholomews Church, Wickham Bishop, arriving just as Craig with his Parents, Best Men and Ushers arrived. This allowed us to get some great informal pictures of them before the more arranged portraits.
The Guests were arriving and made their way into the Church. The flower girls waited patiently for Carly to arrive and it wasn’t long before she did. Taking her Father’s arm she walked into the Church. After the service Carly and Craig led their Guests outside, greeted some of them before it was time to get on with the requested family pictures. Once finished Guests lined the pathway and threw confetti over Carly and Craig before they got in the car to go to Forrester Park Wedding Reception. Forrester Park is between Maldon and Tiptree, Essex, near the village of Great Totham and was the chosen Wedding Venue for Carly and Craig’s Wedding Reception. The Drinks Reception was held in the grounds of Forrester Park, with Guests looking for the shade as the sun was shining brightly and the temperature was rising! We captured some informal pictures during this time and in between took a few smaller group pictures and fun bridal party pictures. Having a little time before the ‘everybody’ picture and the Wedding Breakfast, Carly, Craig and ourselves went for a quick walk around the grounds for a few pictures of them. After the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches, everybody enjoyed the evening sunshine and the evening Guests joined them. Carly and Craig asked to do some relaxed more informal pictures which were were more than happy to take so off we went for a little while. What a fun time we had!
As we returned, more of their Evening Guests had arrived and after talking to them for a little while, it was time for the First Dance. Whilst the dancing carried on we kept a close eye on the sun going down, which was producing some wonderful colours in the sky. A wonderful sunset followed! Thank you to Carly and Craig for wanting to do such a variety of pictures. Lots of familiar faces at this Wedding! It was nice to see Debbie, Steve (Craig’s Parents) and Jack (brother) and Hayley (Craig’s sister) and James with their two children, Chloe, who was the beautiful Flowergirl, and Oliver.
