Vaulty Manor Wedding Photographers for Emma & Rob

Vaulty Manor Wedding Photographers for Emma & Rob

We were delighted to be Vaulty Manor Wedding Photographers for the Spring Wedding of Emma & Rob. The forecast for the day was that it was going to be a hot day and we were not disappointed.

When we arrived at Vaulty Manor on the morning of the Wedding it wasn’t long before we were looking for the shade! Emma was getting ready in the Bridal Suite with her Mum.

Preparations were going well so we got on with taking a few pictures of Emma’s Wedding Dress and accessories. We liked their Disney theme!

Rob and his Brother,Paul, were around the Venue sorting out a few last minute things before they went off to get ready. Preparation pictures taken, Rob and Paul got into their Wedding attire. Once they were ready they had a few pictures with the Dads with the Wedding Car.

The car was for Emma and her Dad as they were going to go for a car ride before the Ceremony.Wedding Photographer Vaulty Manor Once Rob’s pictures were finished they went into the new Reception area. Emma had a few pictures taken in the Bridal Suite once she was ready but time was evaporating at an increased rate! Emma and her Father then went off for a ride. As the Guests arrived at Vaulty Manor they went into the new Reception area which is a lovely extension to this Wedding Venue.

The Wedding Ceremony

Before long it was time for the Guests to go into the room for the Civil Ceremony. Emma had arrived back at the Venue and after seeing the Registrars was ready to make her entrance into the room accompanied by her Father.Vaulty Manor Wedding Photographers Following the Ceremony the Guests made their way outside and waited for Emma and Rob to come out so they could cover them with confetti. As everyone enjoyed the Drinks Reception we took some informal pictures. Emma and Rob wanted some family pictures taken which we took afterwards.

We couldn’t believe the swan in the grounds of the Manor House made an appearance so taking the Bride and Groom with us we went over to the pond and took a few pictures.Wedding Photographer Essex Vaulty Manor It was such a lovely day but rather hot so we didn’t take very long in taking their pictures, they were happy and so were we to do catch up on their pictures in the evening.

The Wedding Breakfast

It was soon time for the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches followed. Rob delivered his Speech as is usual for the Groom, finishing it off with a magic trick. The pressure was on, especially as there was a Magician in the room! Brilliant! It worked, well done, Rob!Essex Wedding Photographer After the Wedding Breakfast the Magician entertained the Guests whilst we took Emma and Rob around the grounds to catch on a few pictures we didn’t do earlier. Wonderful light, lovely pictures. In addition the Swan made another appearance!Wedding Photographer Vaulty Manor

Evening Celebrations

Once the Band had set up Emma and Rob cut their Wedding Cake and had their First Dance. During the evening we took a few pictures of the evening Guests then made ourselves scarce for a little while. Later it was time for Sunset, Sparklers and as a surprise for everyone there were Fireworks.Vaulty Manor Wedding Photographer Once these were finished we said our goodbyes. Thank you Rob and Emma for being such a lovely couple to work with, a very enjoyable day with some wonderful pictures!

So nice to catch up with Sam and Craig again as we photographed their Wedding at Crabbs Barn in 2015.


Marquee Wedding Photography for Alice & Peter

Marquee Wedding Photography for Alice & Peter

We arrived at Alice’s family home on a bright morning with fingers crossed it would continue! After David saying ‘hello’ to everybody he left to go a short distance to Alice and Peter’s home to catch up with the guys and their final preparations. Meanwhile, I stayed with the girls where their preparations were going along nicely. Alice was having her hair and make-up done every step watched  by her Flowergirl, Eliza. Once the men were ready they went off to the Church whilst David returned to Alice and the girls.  The girls were in the final stages of getting dressed and once they were ready we got on with a few pictures.  It was dry and bright outside so we took a few pictures but kept it brief as the wind was getting to be a nuisance.

A few requested family pictures were taken at the Church before the Guests showered Alice and Peter in confetti.   The Guests waved them off in the Morris MG as they left to go to the farm for the Reception. When we arrived at the farm we took Alice and Peter for a very short while for their together pictures in the daffodils before many of the Guests arrived. Marquee Wedding Photography EssexOnce the Guests had finished arriving and had a few minutes for drinks we got on with some requested group pictures.  A big ‘thank you’ to Dave the Best Man for helping us organising these so quickly. With the weather looking like it was changing,  we wanted to capture as much as we could of Alice and Peter’s venue and knew we  were up against it! Alice and Peter were of the same mind.  We even managed to take a few more pictures of the two of them despite the spots of rain starting.  Then the rain came! We moved around the Marquee and captured some informal pictures before the Wedding Breakfast.  This was provided by the Event Catering Company from Colchester. After the meal and Speeches, it wasn’t long before the Band were ready for the dancing.  Alice and Peter cut their Wedding Cake and then a ‘surprise’! Alice’s Brothers rode into the Marquee on a Tandem which was a Wedding Present for Alice and Peter.
