Wedding Photography for Gemma & Steve – Parklands, Quendon Hall

Gemma and Steve were so looking forward to their Wedding at Parklands, Quendon Hall and so were we.  As with many, their Wedding had been so long in the planning  but with Gemma and Steve they had a few more considerations.  Arriving at Parklands we made our way upto the Bridal Changing rooms where Gemma, her Mum and Bridesmaids were having their make-up done.  Gemma was having her hair done as well and how lovely it looked!  With hair and make up finished Gemma moved to the red room, which gave us more space with the Flowergirls, Bridesmaids and Pageboy! In between all this, we managed to meet Steve downstairs in the House capturing a few pictures of him with his Best Man and Ushers before we then returned to take some pictures of Gemma with all her Attendants before it was time for her to see the Registrars.   With Guests seated, Gemma made her entrance into the Civil Ceremony with her Mum at her side. After the Ceremony, although chilly outside but dry, we took the family group photographs they wanted in front of the fountain. Gemma, Steve and ourselves left the Guests socialising and enjoying the drinks reception whilst we went around the lovely grounds of Parklands. wedding-photographer-essex-parklands-quendon-hallThe sun came out on cue as we photographed the happy couple at the lake end, but not wanting to keep Gemma and Steve away from their guests for too long we soon sent then back to the The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and once their Guests were seated, the speeches took place.  Afterwards and before the evening celebrations started, as Gemma and Steve wanted some images capturing the inside of Parklands we spent a short time with them taking these pictures. wedding-photographer-essex-parklands-quendon-hall Evening Guests arrived shortly afterwards and witnessed the cake cutting before the evening went into full swing.  A memorable day with endless smiles, a special couple, nothing was too much trouble for Gemma and Steve, which considering Gemma is wheelchair bound, was a big effort, in and out of her chair all day!  Thank you!

Wedding Photography for Nina-Marie & Trevor at Parklands, Quendon Hall

We overlooked publishing this Wedding so we are making amends now.

It was an extremely hot day when Nina-Marie and Trevor got married in the beautiful Church of Sacred Heart of Jesus & St Josesph in Ware, Hertfordshire, in October 2011.  Our day started at Nina-Marie’s house for the final bridal preparations before leaving to go the Church.  After the service we  took a few pictures outside the Church before leaving to go to Parklands.  Everybody enjoyed relaxing and socialising in the superb grounds of Parklands during the Drinks reception, making for some lovely images. Following some family photographs we took Nina-Marie and Trevor for a short walk around Parklands for a few pictures of the two of them.  After covering the Speeches and taking some evening and First Dance pictures, we left everybody to enjoy the late evening celebrations.

Testimonial for Parklands Wedding Photographers

Just a line to say thank you once more for the finished album you gave us.

Having had time to sit and slowly go through the finished album we are over the moon at what you have created for us, Clare is grinning over it as I type! The pictures are terrific and leafing through it brings back amazing memories of the day.

Thanks once more for your efforts and we will be sure to recommend you.

Have a great Christmas and New Year.

Love from,

Paul and Clare.


Wedding Photography for Claire & Paul at Parklands

Claire and Paul chose the beautiful Venue of Parklands, Quendon Hall, for their Wedding.  Claire and her Bridesmaids were getting ready when we arrived, so after taking a few pictures of them, we took a few pictures of  Paul and his Groomsmen who had arrived at Parklands, before we returned to Claire.  It was a hot, sunny day and the Ceremony was being held outside in the beautiful Gazebo. Claire, Paul and their Guests then enjoyed the Drinks Reception on the lawn whilst we took some informal as well as the requested formal photographs.  Claire and Paul’s portraits were taken around the wonderful grounds of Parklands and we achieved some lovely relaxed images.  After the Wedding Breakfast and capturing the Speeches, which Paul’s speech was one of the best we have heard, everyone went onto the lawn where as a surprise for their Guests, Claire and Paul had arranged a fun Archery session.  This kept the Guests entertained whilst the Band set up for the evening.  A brilliant day ended with a glorious sunset.Wedding Photo - Parklands, Quendon Hall
