Wedding Photography for Reena & Steve – The Fennes Estate

Wow!  What an amazing day!  Not one but two Wedding Ceremonies on the day for Reena and Steve!  David and I arrived in plenty of time at Fennes, familiarising ourselves with the order of the day.  David went to find Steve and his Groomsmen, whilst I joined Reena and the Bridesmaids.  With lots going on in both camps, there was plenty to photograph. The first Ceremony was a Civil Ceremony and as it was a warm, dry and bright Summer’s day the Ceremony was held outside in the Gazebo, a perfect setting!  With the many Guests seated and with Steve awaiting his Bride, Reena made her way to the Following the Ceremony, Guests mingled in the lovely grounds of Fennes, whilst enjoying the Drinks Reception. A few pictures on the Bridge for Reena and Steve followed together with a few family group photographs.  Reena and Steve had time to enjoy talking to their Guests before a few fun bridal party pictures were taken.   It was not long before Reena and Steve left their Guests to change into traditional dress for the Hindu Ceremony.  With such an array of colour and lots going on, outside as well as inside at Fennes, and as this was our first Hindu Ceremony, our feet didn’t touch the ground!  The Mandap looked absolutely fabulous and after Steve had been welcomed by Reena’s Mum and they had taken their places, Reena entered the Mandap.essex-wedding-photographer-hindu-fennes After the Ceremony everybody went outside for some more pictures that the couple Before the Meal,  Reena changed again into an beautiful evening Sari, providing us with even more variety of pictures. Following the Starters, Speeches were made before the main meal.  After the cake cutting, and Reena and Steve’s First Dance we finished our day.  A massive thank you to Reena and Steve for including and educating us so much on their special day.  It was good to work with David of Rideout Productions yet again and thanks to the staff at Fennes as
