Same-Sex Wedding Photography – Stock Brook Manor for Kate & Lorna
We were looking forward to Kate & Lorna’s marriage, this being our first same-sex Wedding Photography. It was a bright, dry but windy day when we arrived at the Hotel for some preparation shots of Kate and Lorna. With lots going on together with lots of people, David and I had our work cut out capturing the key moments as they happened! TDH Media were on hand as well videoing and putting together the Marryoke. Kate was the first to be ready to leave the Hotel with some of the Bridesmaids and head off to Stock Brook Manor, Essex. Time was getting short so we took our final preparation images of Lorna and made our way to Stock Brook. Whilst waiting for Lorna to arrive we had time to catch up with Kate for a few pictures. Once Lorna arrived and after taking a few pictures of her it was time for the Ceremony. With the Guests seated for the Ceremony, the girls took their Dads’ arm and made their separate way to the Rosewood Suite. Kate was the first to enter the room from the side door and made her way to the front of the room. Then Lorna made her entrance from the back of the room to join Kate.After exchanging their vows and now married, Kate and Lorna led their Guests outside onto the patio behind Stock Brook Manor for the Drinks Reception. Whilst everybody was socialising we captured some informal pictures before the requested family photos. We found a sheltered spot for these and despite the wind playing havoc we took a variety of pictures elsewhere during the afternoon. The Wedding Breakfast was upstairs in the Banqueting Suite. Wow! It looked amazing! Once all the wedding guests were seated, Kate and Lorna took their places on the top table for the start of the Wedding Breakfast. Soon it was time for the Speeches and as they finished it was a quick dash to get the sunset. Well worth it! Nice pictures as well as good fun! Returning to their Guests, Kate and Lorna then cut the Wedding cake before their First Dance. After capturing a flavour of the evening entertainment, it was time for us to leave and let them continue with the celebrations. A great day!
