Fennes Wedding Photography
Our day started early with a visit to Zhanine and David’s home for Zhanine’s bridal preparation shots for her Wedding. With David downstairs taking some images of the hair and make-up, I went upstairs to photograph Zhanine’s dress and accessories. When Zhanine’s hair and most of her make-up were finished it was time for her to get dressed. Zhanine’s sister and Bridesmaid helped her get ready whilst I got a few action shots. The time had run out so we quickly took a couple of bridal portraits of Zhanine before we left to go to the Church. Our Lady Immaculate Roman Catholic Church, Chelmsford, was where Zhanine and David were to be married. Once we had finished our brief chat with Father Hugh, taken some detail shots and met with the Videographer who was shooting his first wedding. David, his Best Man and Ushers arrived and and quickly disappeared into the Church to take up their duties. We found time between the guest arrivals to take a few arranged pictures of them. It wasn’t long before Zhanine, accompanied by her Father arrived. We took a couple of pictures before the music began and Zhanine took her Father’s arm and they made their way into the Church. After the service as Zhanine and David left the Church with their Parents and the Bridal Party, we took a couple of quick group pictures of them all, before the rest of the Guests joined them outside. After greeting their Guests for a little while, Zhanine and David were showered in confetti just before getting into the car to go to the Reception. The Fennes Estate was the chosen Reception Venue and a particular favourite of ours. It was a beautiful day and Fennes looked wonderful. Zhanine and David’s Wedding Guests arrived at various intervals and were entertained by the Piper. We got on and took some relaxed and informal pictures during the Drinks Reception. Once we believed everybody had arrived we took the family group pictures. During the afternoon we managed to achieve the pictures that were required as well as taking Zhanine and David onto the bridge for the their pictures. A patch of Bluebells provided a lovely backdrop for a few bride and groom pictures but as always at Fennes there are so many opportunities for pictures that we are spoilt for choice! Later the Piper piped Zhanine and David into the Pavilion for the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches provided some amusing images before people went outside to enjoy the nice evening. Able to find a little time to take some evening pictures of Zhanine and David later we were pleased with the results. Zhanine and David cut their Wedding cake before their First Dance, which was followed by a Ceilidh. Nice to work with www.debbielloyd.co.uk for and www.bridalpromhairdesign.com. A great day!
