Wedding Photography for Claire & Matthew – St. Mary The Virgin Church, Peldon & Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon

Our day started with David going to see Matt and his Groomsmen whilst I stayed with Claire and her Bridesmaids who were enjoying the final bridal preparations with a glass of champagne. Claire and Matt chose to be married at St. Mary The Virgin, Peldon, so Claire was able to walk to the Church with her Dad and Bridesmaids, which made for some nice pictures. wedding-photographer-essex-peldon church Following the Church service and a few family groups outside the Church and confetti pictures, we all left to go to Crabbs Barn,Kelvedon, Guests arrived and enjoyed a Drinks Reception in the grounds of Crabbs Barn. wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barnAllowing time for Claire and Matt to talk to their Guests when they arrived, we took some informal pictures.  After a while we took Claire and Matt for a stroll around the lovely grounds of Crabbs Barn, capturing some lovely images. wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barnThe Wedding Breakfast and Speeches followed, and as the soft evening light was brilliant for photographing in, and not to be missed, for a very short time, Claire, Matt, and ourselves used different areas of Crabbs Barn, including the Bridal Suite, for some relaxed pictures, wonderful!  A sunset picture for Claire and Matt added the final touch to our pictures!
