Fennes Photographer Recommendation

Fennes Photographer Recommendation

We received thisFennes Photographer Recommendation from Ness & Malcolm after their Renewal of vows at Fennes:-

Hi David and Sandra,

Happy New Year.

“David and Sandra’s work is amazing. They captured our day perfectly. They were professional, understanding, gave advice on the type of photo’s and spent time with us. The pre-wedding shoot was a chance for us to get used to each other and really built up a relationship with us. When the big day arrived we both felt really comfortable as did our guests.

Our vicar praised them as being non intrusive through the ceremony which meant that the important part of the ceremony was not dominated by a photographer. David and Sandra perfectly captured these moments without us knowing they were there.

The service they gave us from beginning to end was excellent. David and Sandra captured our personalities, the mood of the day and produced the most amazing album to treasure and can not praise them enough. We would recommend them to any future bride and groom.”

I know the above is long but I wanted to make sure we covered all aspects. Anne was really impressed with your work covering the ceremony, and said you were one of THE best photographers she has ever worked with.

Everyone who has seen the album absolutely love it. Especially the way it is laid out and how you really did capture what the day was all about.

We can not thank you enough for making our day so special.

Kind regards

Ness and Malcolm

Fennes Wedding Photographers For Najette & Bobby

Fennes Wedding Photographers

The sun was shining brightly when we arrived to be Fennes Wedding Photographers for the the Wedding of Najette and Bobby. After saying ‘hello’ to Naj and Tors, Naj’s Matron of Honour. David went off to find Bobby and the men. Naj was getting ready in the Bridal Changing Rooms helped by her friends. Bobby was getting ready in the Cottage.

Preparations were going well for both of them so after capturing a flavour of these Bobby and his Groomsmen were soon ready for some pictures. Making the most of the summer sunshine these were taken outside although we love taking pictures inside at Fennes as well! When these were finished they all mingled with the Guests. Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerMeanwhile Naj was almost ready for her pictures. Her Father came upstairs to see her before we took a few pictures and then it was time for Najette to go downstairs heading to the Ceremony. Whilst this was happening the Guests were taking their seats outside for the outside Ceremony.

The Ceremony

The weather was holding, just! Naj then took her Father’s arm and made her way out of the Gold Room and into the grounds of Fennes. The Ceremony started and the clouds gathered! A couple of claps of thunder in the distance followed but fortunately the rain held off! Essex Wedding Photographer FennesAs the Ceremony finished the sun re-appeared and everyone enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the grounds. After having a little time to socialise we then got on with taking  the requested family pictures. Naj and Bobby’s ‘together’pictures were taken during the afternoon around Fennes.  We did take umbrellas with us but only needed them when we finished their pictures. Good timing! Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes

The Wedding Breakfast

After the confetti it was time for the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches. Before the start of the evening celebrations there was time for everyone to continue with socialising in the Pavilion or take a wander around the gardens of Fennes. It was during this time and the weather was fine we took Naj andBobby for a few minutes for a few evening pictures around the Venue and Naj and Bobby were happy to try out a couple of different pictures that we had been thinking of.Fennes Wedding Photographers Once the Evening Guests had  arrived  Naj and Bobby cut their Wedding Cake. Their First Dance followed before they were joined on the dance floor by their Guests. Our final pictures of Naj and Bobby’s Wedding Day was of the sunset.

Fennes Wedding Photographer for Stephanie & Paul

What a glorious day to be Fennes Wedding Photographer for Stephanie and Paul’s Wedding at this stunning Venue! Starting at Fennes on the morning of the Wedding there was a hive of activity, excitement and people everywhere! With a large Bridal Party of adults and children it was lively! After saying ‘hello’, a quick chat and familiarising ourselves with where we would be taking pictures of the dresses, accessories, we got on with our work.

Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesSienna, Stephanie and Paul’s eldest daughter was very involved from the outset, helping and enjoying every moment. Ellie took a little while to do the same but then found it was good fun! Paul was in the Bridal Cottage finishing off his preparations so David went over there to meet him. When Paul,his Groomsmen and the Pageboys were ready there was time to take a few pictures before the ceremony. Meanwhile, Stephanie, the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls were getting dressed. Wow! Stephanie looked stunning as did the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls. The Pageboys looked so smart as well when they joined the girls. There was time to take a few pictures of them all before  Stephanie headed downstairs. Stephanie’s Grandad was waiting for her at the bottom of the stairs and after greeting Stephanie they went in to to see the Registrars. Paul and the Wedding Guests were seated at the last moment outside for the Ceremony as it was a hot day, just in time for the Ceremony to begin! Lovely pictures as the children led the way from the Gold Room towards the Gazebo.Fennes Wedding PhotographerStephanie took her Grandad’s arm followed the Bridesmaids.

Fennes Wedding Photography for Natalie & Craig

Fennes Wedding Photography for Natalie & Craig

The wonderful Fennes was the choice of Wedding Venue for Natalie and Craig’s Wedding. An outside Ceremony was what Natalie and Craig were wishing for, so it was fingers crossed the weather would hold. Natalie was getting ready upstairs with the help of her Bridesmaids, so first of all we went to see them. Craig was getting ready in the Bridal Cottage with his son Max, and when they were in the final stages of getting ready we were there to take the pictures. Prior to Natalie and Craig’s Wedding Day, Natalie had dislocated her Collar bone so she was trying not to use her arm very much! Once the men were ready they had a few pictures taken outside Fennes before they went about their duties.

Recommended Wedding Photographers FennesNatalie and the girls were now ready and after her Stepdad saw her for the first look we took a few pictures of them all before it was time for Natalie to see the Registrars.  So far the weather was staying fine, maybe a little cooler that recently but nothing to stop the outdoor Ceremony. The Guests were seated and with everyone in place it was time for Natalie to walk the short distance to the Gazebo. Natalie and Craig’s dog led the way, carrying the rings! The rain stayed away, just!Fennes Recommended Wedding Photographer After the Ceremony the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception with some going inside and others staying outside eating ice cream! Later we got on with taking the requested family group pictures followed by a few pictures of Natalie and Craig around the grounds. Natalie wanted to be held up for a picture, the men and Max did this very  carefully! Wedding Photographer FennesThe Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion, followed by the Speeches. After the Speeches there was a little time before the start of the evening celebrations for a few relaxed pictures of Natalie and Craig in the Gold Room and Red Room at the front of the House. The cutting of the cake followed and then Natalie and Craig took to the dance floor for their First Dance.  Our day ended with an evening pictures of Natalie and Craig on the Bridge. A lovely day!
