Wedding Photography for Nina & Steve – Kings Oak Hotel, High Beach, Epping

It was a very hot day when we arrived at the Premier Inn where Nina was getting ready for her Wedding.  Fortunately, we found a shady area outside in the grounds for a few pictures once Nina, her Bridesmaids and Family were ready.  Leaving them a short while later we met Steve at The Kings Oak Hotel, High Beach.  With the beautiful Epping Forest all around us we had plenty of nice areas to take some pictures of Steve and his Best Men before the arrival of the Guests.  Following the Civil Ceremony everybody enjoyed the Drinks Reception before we took a few requested family group pictures under the shade of the trees in the Forest. wedding-photographer-essex-kings-oak-hotel-high-beach Once the Guests returned to the Drinks Reception we kept Nina and Steve for a few portraits of them together before we returned and captured some informal After the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches by Steve, the Best Men and Nina, there was time to enjoy the evening sunshine around the Hotel.  Keeping a watchful eye on the evening sun as it was going down and trying to anticipate when we should let Nina and Steve know when the best time would be for their sunset pictures, was well worth it, as we achieved some lovely results. wedding-photographer-essex-epping-forest Some First Dance pictures and some informal pictures of Nina and Steve’s evening Guests ended our day.


Pre-Wedding Pictures

We decided to meet Nina and Steve at their Wedding Venue, Kings Oak Hotel, High Beach, for their pre-wedding pictures.  As this would be our first time in photographing a Wedding here, we were able to have a look around the Venue and being in the heart of Epping Forest find some nice spots around for a few pictures. wedding-photographer-essex-pre-wedding-pictures-epping forest
