Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photography for Lucy & Joe
Layer Marney Tower Wedding Photography for Lucy and Joe was on a beautiful Spring Day. Our day started at Crowne Plaza Resort Five Lakes.Lucy and Joe were both getting ready. After saying ‘hello’ and a few words with Lucy and the girls, David went off to see Joe. I stayed with the Lucy and the girls and captured the action as it happened as well as taking pictures of the details and accessories. There was a lot going on but all was calm and collected. Joe had a couple of pictures taken before he and his Groomsmen left to go to St. Peters Church, Great Totham. Whilst this was happening Lucy and the girls were on the balcony in the room with their glasses of champagne having their picture taken before getting dressed. It was important for Lucy to see her Father’s reaction when she was dressed and the time as always was going very fast. With the help of her Mum and Bridesmaids this was achieved quickly and we had a little time for a few other pictures before we had to leave. St Peter’s Church, Great Totham was where the marriage was taking place and once we arrived we took some Guest arrival pictures, as well as a few of Joe and his Groomsmen.Waiting at the Church were the Flowergirl Estelle-Rose and Ben,the Pageboy, who were eager to see Lucy arrive at the Church gate. After getting a glimpse of her they rushed back to the Church Door to surprise her. The String Quartet played as Lucy then took her Father’s arm and went into the Church. Outside the Church after the service Lucy and Joe just wanted a few pictures taken as they wanted to get back to Layer Marney. The Guests climbed aboard the Layer Marney Bus as Lucy and Joe were driven to Layer Marney Tower. The Drinks Reception was held outside in front of the Tower so the Guests took a drink and when Lucy and Joe arrived at the bottom gate they made their way down there. Lucy and Joe wanted to walk upto the Tower with the Guests blowing bubbles over them and this is what happened.Some nice pictures. Lucy and Joe had time to spend with their Guests during the afternoon as well as us taking the requested family group pictures. During the afternoon Alan Nunn, the Magician and Arioso String Quartet provided the entertainment. Later whilst we took Lucy and Joe for a walk around the grounds of Layer Marney the children plus their Mums and Dads went into the Barn to see the lambs. If wanted they could give the lambs their milk which some did. When we returned the Guests made their way into the Long Gallery for the Wedding Breakfast. Lucy and Joe were announced in and they took their seats at the top table ready for the meal to be served. The Speeches followed and once this were finished we made a dash outside for the sunset. Phew! We just made it in time for some nice pictures. We finished with some evening pictures in front of the Tower before going inside. The Band was ready so Lucy and Joe took to the dance floor for their First Dance. After taking a few informal group pictures of the evening it was time for us to say our ‘goodbyes’. A long day but a most rewarding day and a nice Wedding. It was nice to see Julia of W. Flowers and to meet Michelle of Bumblebee bridal (little did we know at the time we would be seeing and working with each other on several Weddings this year!)
We met with Lucy and Joe at the end of last year for a chat about their Wedding this year and for their Engagement photo-shoot. After chatting and happy with all the details for their Wedding Day, we went out for a few pictures locally. Lucy and Joe are getting married soon at St Peter’s Church, Great Totham and then having their reception at Layer Marney Tower.
Layer Marney was the chosen Wedding Venue for Dana and Jim’s Wedding last year. Dana was getting ready at Crowne Plaza, Colchester and that’s where we started our day. Lots of preparations were going on in the rooms where they were getting ready but everybody was enjoying themselves and everything was going smoothly. We took some pictures of the girls as they were getting ready. Finishing touches applied Dana and the rest of the girls got ready, Dana being helped by her Mother. Time was on our side so we had time to take a few pictures of them all once they were ready. These completed we then travelled to Layer Marney Tower.Jim was there with his Groomsmen so before too many of the Guests arrived we took a few pictures of them in front of the Tower. As the Guests arrived on the Layer Marney Bus we had time to take a few arrival shots. Jim, his Groomsmen and the Guests made their way upto the Corsellis Room to take their seats for the Civil Ceremony. Meanwhile Dana arrived in the Layer Marney Rolls Royce and after a couple of pictures met with the Registrars. The Civil Ceremony followed and once this finished Dana and Jim were given Champagne and taken for a ride in the car. It was a lovely day so the Drinks Reception was held outside and Guests enjoyed this in the grounds of Layer Marney. Arriving at the gates we took a few pictures of Dana and Jim before they walked up the path to the Tower. Their Guests walked towards the steps to see and greet them as they reached the top. Dana and Jim spent a little while socialising with their Guests before we took the requested group pictures. These went well and gave the opportunity to Dana and Jim to mingle a bit more. During the afternoon we took a mixture of fun Bridal Party pictures and informal pictures. Molly and Evie, the younger Bridesmaids had fun around the grounds and we were on hand to capture the pictures. For Dana and Jim’s together pictures we went to the Lake and Barn. We ended up with a great selection of pictures, well done Dana and Jim! Just before the Wedding Breakfast Dana and Jim were covered with confetti and they then proceeded into the Long Gallery for the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches were before the meal and there was a tear in everybody’s eyes when Molly’s Speech was read. Molly had written some beautiful words but didn’t want to read them out loud to a room full of people, so the Best Man did the honours. Well done Molly! The meal was served and afterwards there was a little time for everyone to relax outside as the Band set up for the evening celebrations. A sunset was on the cards and Dana and Jim wanted to do a few other pictures as well. Dana and Jim cut their Wedding Cake before their First Dance. After the Tower night shot we left Dana and Jim to continue dancing to the superb Band Three Mile Hill. Thank you Dana and Jim for the ‘extra’ you put into your pictures on your Wedding Day.

It was a hot day for Julia and David’s Wedding Day at Layer Marney Tower, Layer-de-la-Haye. A late afternoon summer Wedding was what Julia and David chose. We arrived before Julia and David at Layer Marney and as the Wedding Guests arrived we took a few informal pictures. Julia and David arrived together and had a few requested pictures taken before it was time for them to see the Registrars. Julia and David then made their way into the Corsellis Room with their Flowergirl and Pageboys and greeted the Guests as they made their way to their seats. The Ceremony followed then Julia and David went for a drive together as their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception outside in the grounds. Returning from their drive, Julia and David walked up towards the Tower and socialised with their Guests. Managing our time well we took various requested pictures as well as capturing a flavour of the day. Before the Wedding Breakfast we took Julia and David for a quick walk around the grounds for a few pictures of them together, including a couple of pictures in the Barn. Pictures with the cake followed before the children enjoyed throwing confetti over Julia and David on the stairs. With time upon us it was time for the Wedding Breakfast in the Long Gallery and time for us to say goodbye.
