Wedding Photographer Prested Hall for Victoria & Greg

Wedding Photographer Prested Hall for Victoria & Greg

We were delighted to be theWedding Photographer Prested Hall for Victoria & Greg.  It was a dry bright day when we arrived at Prested Hall. Preparations were taking place upstairs in Prested Hall so that’s where we started.  Everything was running well and all the girls were very relaxed and enjoying what was going on. Without hurrying, there was time to take the details and accessories pictures in between capturing a variety of getting ready pictures.

Greg was in the Apartment getting ready and we captured a few pictures of his preparations as well. Once Greg and the guys were ready they made their way over to Prested Hall where they had a few pictures taken. Greg and his Groomsmen then greeted the Guests. Once the girls were ready and Tori’s Father had come into the room to see his daughter we got on with their pictures. It was nice to have a little extra time to take Tori’s Bridal portraits, she looked amazing! Wedding Photographer Prested Hall Finishing the pictures it was time for the Ceremony. The Guests were seated in the Garden Room ready for the Ceremony, whilst Greg stood waiting for Tori to enter the room. Recommended Wedding Photographer Prested Hall

After the Ceremony

After the Ceremony Tori and Greg together with their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception. A short time later we got on with the requested family pictures. The sun was out whilst we took the pictures but as we were coming to the finish with the group pictures, dark clouds appeared! The Guests made their way into Prested Hall  as it started to rain, but Tori, Greg and ourselves decided to head over to the Gazebo.  Under cover we took a few of Tori and Greg’s together pictures, David got a touch wet! Essex Wedding Photographer Prested HallTori and Greg then returned to their Guests until the Wedding Breakfast. The Marquee was where the Wedding Breakfast was held and after the meal we captured the moments of the Speeches. Once the Speeches were completed there was a break before the start of the evening celebrations.

The Evening

During this time, Tori, Greg and ourselves went off for a short while to take some more pictures of them and the sunset. The rain had stopped, it was a pleasant evening and we made the most of the time.

Prested Hall Wedding Photography for Hayley & Jason

Prested Hall Wedding Photography for Hayley & Jason

It was nice to be back for more Prested Hall Wedding Photography. This time for the Wedding of Hayley and Jason. Hayley, her Parents and Bridesmaids were getting ready in the Prested Apartments, situated in the Spa complex. We started our coverage from there as the girls were having their hair and make-up finished.

Hayley’s Dress and accessories were over in the main house so we made sure pictures of these were taken. Preparations were going well and it wasn’t long before the girls were ready to transfer to Prested Hall itself.  Hayley’s timings were good and allowed us time to get the required photographs with her Bridesmaids and parents.Recommended Wedding Photographer Essex

Carriage Ride to Church

The Horse and Carriage was ready for Hayley as we finished the pictures to take her with her Father to All Saints Church, Feering. David and I left to get to the Church before them and take a few pictures of Jason and his Groomsmen, who were very relaxed and enjoying the moments. We managed to complete taking Jason’s pictures before too many of the Guests arrived, then left Jason, his Best Man and Ushers to continue greeting them.

It was a beautiful day, ideal for arriving at Church in a Horse and Carriage. After taking a couple of pictures, Hayley and her Father walked towards to the Church. The Bridesmaids were first to enter the Church, then Hayley and her Father followed. Wow! The atmosphere, emotions, reactions were fantastic and these continued all the way through the service. Some wonderful moments captured! Essex Church Wedding PhotographerAfter the Church service, everybody came outside and after a few minutes we got on with the requested family pictures.  It was nice for Jason to have a large contingent of his family over from Australia, where he originates from. With the group pictures completed the Guests threw confetti over Hayley and Jason.

Hayley and Jason then enjoyed the ride to Prested Hall for the Reception. The Drinks Reception awaited them and their Guests on their arrival and there was time for everyone to socialise. During the rest of the afternoon we took some fun Bridal Party pictures and a few of Hayley and Jason by themselves.Prested Hall Recommended Wedding Photographers

The Wedding Breakfast

The Marquee looked wonderful for the Wedding Breakfast and when the time was right the Guests everyone took their seats. The Speeches followed the meal before all the guests went outside to enjoy the evening sunshine.  Prested Hall Wedding Photography

The Evening

Hayley and Jason were pleased we asked them to create a few more pictures in the evening light. Moving around Prested Hall we ended up with a variety of nice relaxed and fun evening pictures. The Evening Guests were arriving when we returned so we left Hayley and Jason greeting them.

Later after cutting their Wedding Cake, they took to the dance floor for their First Dance. During the evening we captured a few informal pictures whilst waiting for the sunset. We whisked Hayley and Jason away for a little while by car for the sunset. Not to be missed! It was spectacular! Recommended Wedding Photographer Prested HallThis ended our coverage of Hayley and Jason’s wonderful Wedding. A lovely couple! A great Wedding! Thank you to Hayley and Jason for such  a memorable Wedding. A mention to Rachel of Prested Hall, it was nice working with you as always.

 

 
 
 

Hylands Engagement shoot

Hylands Engagement shoot

We arranged to meet Hayley and Jason one afternoon earlier in the year at Hylands Park, Chelmsford. The winter weather was good, improving all the time as we went for a walk. Spoilt for choice as to where to take some pictures we narrowed our choice and were pleased with the outcome. Hayley and Jason are having a Church Wedding followed by their Wedding Reception at Prested Hall, Feering.

Prested Hall was the chosen Wedding Venue for Nicola and Rob’s Wedding. Arriving at Prested Hall we went upstairs to see Nicola. It was nice and relaxed up there with Nicola having the finishing touches applied to her hair and make-up. Robert was downstairs and once he was ready we took a few pictures of him, and a a couple of pictures with his Parents, Brother and Nephews. Robert then went off to join his Guests. Once Nicola was ready, her Father came into the room and saw her before we got on with a few pictures.

Leaving the Guests for a few minutes we took Robert and Nicola for a few pictures around the grounds of Prested Hall. Not keeping them too long, we managed to take some nice pictures on and over the bridge.  This was  late Autumn and the light was going fast. Later, finishing off with a  picture as the sun was going down was an added bonus.Prested Hall Wedding Photography Returning we took a few more requested pictures before we took Nicola and Robert into the Orangery to take a picture of them with their Wedding Cake.

Wedding Photography Prested Hall for Carrie & Daniel

Wedding Photography Prested Hall for Carrie & Daniel

Carrie and Daniel’s wonderful Wedding was held at Prested Hall, Feering, a couple of months ago. Our day started at Stoke-by-Nayland Golf Hotel and Spa in one of the luxury Lodges. Carrie, her Mum and Bridesmaids were getting read in the Crispin Cox Lodge and everything was going well.   Carrie’s Wedding Dress and accessories were in the bedroom so we got some pictures of these.   Meanwhile, Carrie was having her make-up done and the Bridesmaids were chatting amongst themselves before starting to get ready. With Carrie’s make-up finished and the girls in their Bridesmaid dresses and Mum dressed in her outfit, there was time for Carrie to undo her card and present from Daniel. Some lovely moments! Carrie then helped by her Bridesmaids and Mum got dressed just before her Father arrived. Carrie looked amazing! Capturing the moment her Dad saw Carrie was then followed by taking a few pictures outside on the Balcony of all of them.Recommended Wedding Photographers Prested Hall It was soon time for us to leave to go to Prested Hall.  Arriving there we went to find Daniel who was in the final stages of getting ready. There was time to take a few pictures of Daniel, his Groomsmen and Parents outside Prested Hall before they went  inside before the girls arrived. Carrie arrived soon after with her Father.  As the ground at Prested Hall was very soft (as it was at many other Wedding Venues this weekend)  the outside Ceremony which was planned unfortunately had to take place inside. Once the Guests had taken their seats in the Garden Room and Carrie had seen the registrars, it was time for the Ceremony. After this Carrie and Daniel made their way out of Prested Hall so we could take a couple of pictures with the car.  Meanwhile, the Guests were getting ready to shower Carrie and Daniel with confetti.Wedding Photography Prested Hall Essex As everyone was outside we carried on with some requested family pictures. These pictures were halted a short while later as a shower of rain made an unwelcome appearance! As the Guests socialised inside we took some informal pictures. After the rain shower, the sun came out and we carried on what we had started earlier. Following the fun bridal shots we took Carrie and Daniel for a few minutes over to the Bridge for their pictures. Scruffy, Carrie and Daniel’s dog was waiting for them on our return.  Totally loving the moment, Scruffy was so excited!   .Prested Hall Recommended Wedding Photographer The Marquee was set up beautifully for the Wedding Breakfast and after Carrie and Daniel were seated the meal began. The Speeches were next and then there was  time for people to walk around the grounds, go to their rooms if they wanted, or just sit and chat. The evening light was good so it was at this time we escaped with Carrie and Daniel for some evening pictures, a lovely sky adding to the nice pictures captured. There were cocktails for the start of the evening celebrations which went down a treat! Aurora Pearl had set up the dance floor and the band were soon ready. Carrie and Daniel cut their Wedding Cake before Carrie had a dance with her Father, before the happy couple had their First Dance. For Carrie and Daniel’s sunset pictures, a quick ride in the car was required!  We found the best place for the sunset, so we were happy!  Sparklers finished our coverage of Carrie and Daniel’s Wedding later.Prested Hall Recommended Wedding PhotographersThank you Carrie and Daniel for letting us be a part of your special day. It was well worth the wait! A lovely couple and a memorable day! Great to work again with David Payne of Rideout Productions, Kerry and Paul of Timeless Acoustics and Aurora Pearl as well as all the staff at Prested Hall.
