Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographer
A blue sky and fluffy white clouds greeted us on arrival at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon, for the Wedding of Sam and Craig. Crabbs Barn looked a picture and Paul and the rest of the staff warmly welcomed us as always. Sam arrived at the Bridal Suite with her hair and make up done, leaving just the final touches to complete. Everyone was excited, rightly so! A little while later Craig arrived with his Best Man and Ushers and before they got underway with their duties they had a few pictures taken. Once Sam was ready we took a few pictures then assisted by her Bridesmaids and Flowergirl, they walked around to the Barn. After seeing the Registrars, it was time for the Civil Ceremony.
With the sun streaming in through the windows, Sam and Craig exchanged their Wedding vows. After the Ceremony. the Drinks Reception was held in Pavilion, where we took some informal pictures. Clouds were gathering so we decided to get on with some requested Group pictures during that time as well. Following these, keeping an eye on the weather and knowing Sam and Craig wanted their pictures around the splendid grounds of Crabbs Barn, we carried on with their ‘together’pictures.
In next to no time we completed these allowing a little more social time for Sam and Craig to enjoy. After the ‘everybody’ picture it was time for the Wedding Breakfast. Craig delivered his Speech prior to the meal being served as the rain arrived. Good timing! The sun came out again during the Wedding Breakfast and with everything running smoothly there was sufficient time before the rest of the Speeches for a couple of sunset pictures. Sam’s Mum’s Speech was followed by a Speech by the Best Man.
Afterwards Sam and Craig’s Guests enjoyed coffee in the Pavilion, followed by the arrival of their Evening Guests. As a surprise, Sam and Craig had arranged a firework display for their Guests’ enjoyment.
After cutting the wedding cake and coverage of Sam and Craig’s First Dance we took a few images capturing their evening Guests just before our our day ended. A lovely couple and a lovely day to be a Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographer !
