Fennes Outdoor Wedding for Kelly & Ben

Fennes Outdoor Wedding for Kelly & Ben

It was a beautiful day for Kelly and Ben’s Fennes Outdoor Wedding. Both Kelly and Ben were getting ready at Fennes so  David and I went our separate ways to photograph the preparations. In both camps preparations were going well. The Flowergirl, Ophelia,  was happy drawing and colouring whilst watching the preparations, waiting patiently for her turn to get dressed.

Once Ben and his Groomsmen were ready they came over to the House. After Ben had opened his present from Kelly he had a few pictures taken with his Best Man and Ushers. Upstairs, Kelly and her Bridesmaids were getting dressed with Mum assisting Kelly and were all soon ready for some pictures. Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes

The Ceremony

Guests who had been socialising outside and others who were arriving made their way to the area for the Ceremony. Ben escorted Kelly’s Mother over to the Gazebo for the Ceremony as Kelly came down the stairs and was greeted by her Father. After seeing the Registrars, Kelly and the girls had a few minutes before leaving the Gold Room and going outside. Some lovely pictures against a wonderful backdrop as they joined everybody.

The Reception

After the Ceremony everyone enjoyed the Drinks Reception entertained by the String Quartet. Timings were fine allowing time for Kelly and Ben to socialise as well as taking their requested pictures. A nice relaxing afternoon gave us time to take a variety of pictures but without keeping Kelly and Ben for long periods of time away from their Guests.  Before the Wedding Breakfast the Guests showered Kelly and Ben in confetti.

After the Wedding Breakfast it was time for the Speeches. Once these were finished as it was such a lovely evening, the light was good we went outside for a few more pictures.  Finishing off as we returned to the Pavilion we took a couple of pictures in the house.Classic posed wedding pictures in Fennes red room After the evening Guests had arrived it was time for cutting the Wedding Cake and the First Dance.

It was a delight to be back photographing at The Fennes Estate for the Wedding of Katie and Bill. Arriving at Fennes, it was sunny and preparations for the outdoor Ceremony were in full swing. Bill was with his Groomsmen getting ready in the Lodge whilst Katie was with her Mother and Bridesmaids upstairs in the newly refurbished Bridal Changing Room. After taking a few pictures  to capture Bill’s final preparations, the men were ready.  Bill and his Groomsmen had time to socialise with the Guests who were arriving after we had finished.Wedding Photographer Fennes The girls’ preparation pictures were taken and they were in the process of getting dressed. Just before we got on with Katie’s pictures, her Father came upstairs to see his daughter all dressed ready for her Wedding. Katie looked wonderful and after this moment we got on with the rest of the pictures. It was soon time for  Katie to take her Dad’s arm and make her way outside for the Ceremony in the Gazebo. A lovely setting! Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesFollowing the Ceremony the Drinks Reception was held in the gardens. Everyone enjoyed mingling, eating and drinking in the afternoon sun.  In between times we got on with the requested family group pictures ending up with some fun Bridal Party pictures. The breeze proved a bit of a nuisance during the taking of some of the pictures  but we just moved to a different area and carried on. Before the confetti pictures we took Katie and Bill for a short walk around the grounds for their pictures.

Fennes is a beautiful setting for a Wedding and it looked wonderful as we arrived for Stacey and Michael’s Wedding in May. Stacey was getting ready upstairs in the House and Michael was getting ready in the Lodges.  Stacey and Michael’s sons, Noah and Harry were with their Daddy, with the plan that they joined Stacey once she was dressed. Preparations were going well and they were all very relaxed.

Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerMichael, his Best Man, Ushers and the boys had a few photos taken when they were ready. Noah and Harry then went upstairs to the Bridal Room to see their Mummy, who looked amazing!  After taking some pictures of them all, it was time to go downstairs where Stacey met with the Registrars.  The Registrars made their way outside for the Ceremony and Stacey took her father’s arm and went into the Gold Room ready to walk outside. Fennes Wedding Photography for Stacey & Michael Noah and Harry happily led the way and during the Ceremony they handed over the rings. Following the Ceremony, everyone enjoyed the Drinks Reception, the children were blowing bubbles, whilst adults mingled. In between we took some requested family pictures and later on managed to find time for some pictures of Stacey and Michael. Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesIt was soon time for the Wedding Breakfast which was held in the Pavilion. After the Speeches, there were garden games in the grounds which kept everybody entertained. Making the most of the evening sunshine Guests enjoyed strolling around the grounds which gave us the opportunity of taking some evening pictures of Stacey and Michael. When the Evening Guests arrived Stacey and Michael cut their Wedding Cake, which was followed by their First Dance.   Stacey and Michael provided their Guests props for ‘fun pictures’ which we captured.  A nice day provided a lovely sunset picture. We took our leave a little while later. A wonderful day!Wedding Photographer Essex The Fennes Estate
