The quality of the book is very high and we are very happy with the way it was presented in the box. All the photos have come out really well and we cant thank you enough for capturing our day in such a perfect way, which we will remember for years to come.

Pre-Wedding Shoot for Dana and Jim

What a lovely morning for a Pre-Wedding shoot for Dana and Jim!  It was early one morning recently when we met Dana, Jim and Molly for some pictures at Danbury Lakes. Making the most of the weather and not any people around we went for a walk.  After some nice pictures around we spent a little time with them talking about Dana and Jim’s Wedding at Layer Marney Tower, in a few months time.

Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower

Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower – It was a beautiful day for Melissa and Graham’s Wedding. Our day started at Melissa’s Parents’ home where Melissa and the girls were making their final preparations.  When Melissa was ready we took a few pictures inside and outside, before leaving for the Church. At St Mary’s Church, Fairstead  Guests were starting to arrive but we managed to fit in a few pictures of Graham and his Groomsmen.  As the Guests made their way into the Church we captured some nice natural candid images.  Melissa arrived at the Church in the Layer Marney Rolls Royce for the Church service. Wedding Photographer Essex After the service the Wedding Guests followed Melissa and Graham outside for some traditional  family pictures.  Once finished, the Guests lined the pathway and threw confetti over Melissa and Graham as they walked to the car to go to the Reception at Layer Marney. On arrival at Layer Marney, Melissa and Graham were dropped in the Courtyard as they wanted to view The Long Galley and have a couple of pictures taken before their Guests arrived.  Layer Marney’s Chaffeur, Graham, then took them for a short ride before arriving at the gate at the bottom of Tower. As the Guests arrived they enjoyed the Drinks Reception and congregated on the top step by the Tower.  Friends of Melissa and Graham had arranged to bring Melissa’s horse to the Reception, which was a surprise to the Guests. Layer Marney Wedding Photographer With some nice images captured and Melissa’s horse back in the horse box, Melissa and Graham joined their Guests.  In between socialising with their Guests, we took Melissa and Graham for a few pictures of them together before the start of the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches. In the interval before the start of the evening celebrations, everybody was entertained by the fabulous singer Joe Frydd.  After such  a very warm sunny day we thought a sunset was likely. Melissa and Graham are dancers which really made a special  ‘Wow’ picture for them! This of course extended to their fantastic First Dance which was very well choreographed.Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower Afterwards they cut their Wedding cake and just before we left a nightime picture ended our coverage of a wonderful day.


Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photos for Alison & Steven

Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photos – Layer Marney Tower was the chosen Wedding Venue for Alison and Steven’s Wedding.  Both Alison & Steve were starting from Five Lakes, Crowne Plaza Resort, Colchester and we we went to see Alison.  Preparations were going well and it was busy, busy, busy!  With lots to photograph we quickly got on with the job.  Steven and his Groomsmen were downstairs, so we were able to get a couple of pictures of them before they had to leave for Layer Marney. We had a little time left for a few pictures of the girls once they were all dressed, before we also left for Layer Marney.

We took some lovely pictures of Victoria and Paul when they arrived back from their ride in the car and walked up the path to the Tower which was bathed in sunshine.  Layer Marney Tower was open so we took a couple of pictures of the two of them there before they socialised with their Guests.  After a little while we got on with the family group pictures and Victoria and Paul’s together pictures around the grounds.

After a lovely day, a fabulous sunset!Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photographer This was followed by Victoria and Paul cutting their Wedding Cake before their First Dance.
