Wedding Photography for Debbie & Gbenga

Wedding Photography for Debbie & Gbenga

It was an early start for us for the wedding photography for Debbie and Gbenga. Debbie, her Mother and Bridesmaids were getting ready not at the family farm but at The Mill Hotel in Sudbury. Meeting with the girls in the room all the preparations were going well. Timings were spot on, we were able to take some getting ready pictures as well as a few of Debbie when she was dressed.

Essex Wedding PhotographerLeaving them we then went to meet with Gbenga and his Groomsmen. They were getting ready close to Debbie’s family home so we stopped off to see them.  We had a little time with them to capture a few preparation pictures.  For their portraits we found a shaded spot behind the cottage in the shelter of the trees as it was now a very hot day. Leaving them we then went the short distance to Debbie’s family home.  Waiting for us there were the two Flowergirls with their Mummies. Debbie wanted a couple of family pictures there before going to the Church. It worked well,  wethen left them and made our way to St Nicholas Church, Castle Hedingham. At Church we captured a few pictures of the guests as they arrived.  Debbie arrived with her Father shortly afterwards and walked down the path and into the Church.Wedding Photography Essex After the service, using the shelter of the trees from the sun, we got on with taking the requested family group pictures. This worked well and it wasn’t many minutes before we were able to leave for the Reception. The Marquee  was set up in the grounds of Debbie’s Parents Farm so we quickly took a few pictures of the details before we took some informal pictures of the Guests who were enjoying the Drinks Reception. Debbie and Gbenga arrived a little later, making for some great pictures as they entered the farm. Marquee Wedding Photographer EssexDebbie and Gbenga then enjoyed some social time with their Guests before some fun bridal party shots.  We took Debbie and Gbenga’s pre-wedding pictures at the Farm earlier in the summer so knew the opportunities for their ‘together’ pictures. We were looking forward to take these. Although still rather hot we took a few pictures of them around but decided to take some more later on. When everybody was seated for the Wedding Breakfast, one person who was designated from each table, put on an apron and took on the job of carving the joint of beef for their party. After the meal the Speeches followed.  It was a beautiful evening and more pictures beckoned! Debbie and Gbenga were more than happy to have a few pictures around the lake and then go into the cornfield.  Wonderful!Wedding Photographer Essex After Debbie and Gbenga’s First Dance a little later we then said our ‘goodbyes’.  A most rewarding day of wedding photography.

 
 
 

Marquee Wedding Photography for Alice & Peter

Marquee Wedding Photography for Alice & Peter

We arrived at Alice’s family home on a bright morning with fingers crossed it would continue! After David saying ‘hello’ to everybody he left to go a short distance to Alice and Peter’s home to catch up with the guys and their final preparations. Meanwhile, I stayed with the girls where their preparations were going along nicely. Alice was having her hair and make-up done every step watched  by her Flowergirl, Eliza. Once the men were ready they went off to the Church whilst David returned to Alice and the girls.  The girls were in the final stages of getting dressed and once they were ready we got on with a few pictures.  It was dry and bright outside so we took a few pictures but kept it brief as the wind was getting to be a nuisance.

Essex Wedding Photographer We then left to go to St Nicholas Church, Tolleshunt D’arcy  where Alice and Peter were to be married.  We had a little time to take a few pictures of Peter, his Best Man, Usher before the arrival of Alice.  Alice’s friend drove her to the Church in her Morris MG and then Alice’s two brothers escorted into the Church. Essex Church Wedding PhotographerAfter the service, Alice and Peter exited the Church, followed by their Guests and mingled in the sunshine for a short while. A few requested family pictures were taken at the Church before the Guests showered Alice and Peter in confetti.   The Guests waved them off in the Morris MG as they left to go to the farm for the Reception. When we arrived at the farm we took Alice and Peter for a very short while for their together pictures in the daffodils before many of the Guests arrived. Marquee Wedding Photography EssexOnce the Guests had finished arriving and had a few minutes for drinks we got on with some requested group pictures.  A big ‘thank you’ to Dave the Best Man for helping us organising these so quickly. With the weather looking like it was changing,  we wanted to capture as much as we could of Alice and Peter’s venue and knew we  were up against it! Alice and Peter were of the same mind.  We even managed to take a few more pictures of the two of them despite the spots of rain starting.  Then the rain came! We moved around the Marquee and captured some informal pictures before the Wedding Breakfast.  This was provided by the Event Catering Company from Colchester. After the meal and Speeches, it wasn’t long before the Band were ready for the dancing.  Alice and Peter cut their Wedding Cake and then a ‘surprise’! Alice’s Brothers rode into the Marquee on a Tandem which was a Wedding Present for Alice and Peter. Wedding Photographer EssexJust before leaving Alice and Peter braved the weather for a couple of night pictures with the lights outside. Thank you! A nice ending to a lovely day!

It was a bright, sunny, but very cold winter’s day when we met Alice and Peter again to discuss their Wedding. We met Alice and Pete at the family farm where the marquee Wedding Reception will be taking place.  After a chat about their Wedding we went for a walk around the farm, accompanied by Alice’s Brother’s dog. We are looking forward to photographing their Wedding very soon.

Marquee Wedding Suffolk

Marquee Wedding Suffolk

It was a beautiful day for Helen and Jamie’s  Church and Marque Wedding.  Our first port of call was to Helen and Jamie’s home for some getting ready pictures. Whilst Helen was having the final touches applied to her make-up and hair we got on with taking detail and accessories pictures.  Once Helen was ready we took a couple of bridal portraits then a couple of pictures with her Parents before leaving. St Edmund’s Church, Assington was the place where the Church service for Helen and Jamie’s chose to get married.  With the sun shining brightly the flowers over the gateway to the Church enhanced the picturesque scene. Guests were beginning to arrive so we took  a few pictures of Jamie, his Best Man and Ushers, followed by a couple of requested pictures.Marquee Wedding Suffolk Whilst the Guests made their way into the Church, Anna, their Flowergirl waited outside for Helen to arrive.  Helen arrived in a white Morgan driven by her Father and after a couple of pictures walked up the path to the Church. Anna led the way into the Church sprinkling flower petals as she went, followed by Helen escorted by her Father.  After the service we took a few family pictures before the Guests threw confetti over Helen and Jamie as they reached the gateway.  Helen and Jamie wanted to have a few pictures of themselves in the Church before leaving, so their Guests left to go the Reception. Suffolk Wedding PhotographerJamie then drove the car to the Woods where we created some nice pictures of the two of them. Marquee Wedding Colchester It wasn’t long before we all joined the Guests at Jamie’s Parents’home for the Reception.  Their Guests were relaxing in the garden so we captured the images before the Wedding  Breakfast in the Marquee. We returned after the Wedding Breakfast to take a few informal pictures of the evening celebrations, including the First Dance.  A stroll down the road and into a field for a splendid sunset picture concluded our coverage of Helen and Jamie’s summer Wedding.  A wonderful day!

 
 
 

Wedding Photography – Sinead & Ross – Dedham, Essex

Everything was running smoothly when we arrived at Sinead’s family home in Dedham, Essex, for the bridal preparations.  We took some informal and formal pictures of the girls inside and outside before leaving to go to the St Mary’s Church, Dedham, for the Church service. Following the service a few pictures were taken in the grounds, then Sinead and Ross left the Church to a shower of confetti!wedding-photographer-essex-st.mary's church-dedham Many of their Guests walked to the Reception which was held at Sinead’s family home and we captured some lovely images whilst we walked as well.  With a wonderfully colourful setting the opportunities were endless for requested family pictures and with the weather on our side we took full advantage.  Sinead and Ross had several opportunities to socialise with their Guests before we took them off for a stroll around different areas for their pictures.  We all had a great time and achieved some lovely pictures before the Wedding Breakfast.  Speeches followed before the evening and First Dance photographs and this ended a wonderful day.  It was nice to work with Mervyn Rutter (Toastmaster) again, and thank you to The Food Station, www.foodstation.uk.com who looked after us and provided excellent food.  wedding-photographer-essex-dedham
