Wedding Photography Kelvedon – Sophie and Jamie’s Church Wedding was at St Mary the Virgin Church, Kelvedon and then back to Sophie’s Parents’ home nearby. Our day started early afternoon at Sophie’s Parents’ home where preparations were taking place. Everything was running smoothly and after capturing the getting ready pictures together with all the accessories it was time for a few family pictures. We left soon after to go to the Church where we met Jamie and his Groomsmen. With the rain holding off for the moment we managed to take their pictures outside. Keeping our fingers crossed Sophie would arrive in the dry (it worked!), it wasn’t long before the Church service began. Being a late afternoon Wedding in December and with the light rapidly going, when Sophie and Jamie came out of the Church, we didn’t delay getting back to the Reception. Once back at Sophie’s Parents’ house, Sophie and Jamie escaped inside while the Wedding Guests were ushered into the Marquee in the grounds. By this time the heavens had opened! Leaving Sophie and Jamie for some time alone, a short time later we joined them to take some pictures of them together. A surprise firework display happened at the same time in the grounds which made for some good reaction pictures. Once everybody had arrived, Sophie and Jamie made their entrance into the Marquee and enjoyed the Drinks Reception. As the weather was definitely not on our side, requested group pictures were taken in the Marquee. Later before the Wedding Breakfast, Sophie’s brother Ben made a Speech which did not leave many dry eyes by the end! Following the Wedding Breakfast, we covered the rest of the Speeches before the evening celebrations. Sophie and Jamie wanted to have some pictures taken using the backdrop of an old ruins of Felix Hall in the grounds, which had been lit up especially for their Wedding. Despite the awful weather, armed with umbrellas and something to stand on, off we went! Pleased with the results we returned to the evening Reception. With the Band set up it was soon time for Sophie and Jamie’s First Dance. After a finishing picture we left them all to dance the night away. A lovely day!
