Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography for Amy and Tom
Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography for Amy and Tom was on a lovely late spring day! We arrived at Amy’s Parents home first of all which was where Amy was getting ready with her Bridesmaids. The sun was shining and the forecast was it would be getting hotter as the day went on. Amy was in the final stages of her hair and make-up being finished so we got on with taking the pictures of Amy’s Wedding Dress and accessories. Ellie and Katie, the smaller Bridesmaids arrived a little later on. Once hair and make up ‘getting ready’ pictures were completed the girls watched as Amy opened her present from Tom. Time for the girls to get dressed and then Amy’s Mother, Lindsey, and Amy’s sister Robyn assisted Amy to get dressed. Amy looked wonderful! The garden looked fabulous and when Amy was ready we all went outside. Although it was only late morning it was now very hot and sunny everywhere but we took some pictures outside. Finishing these we left to go to St Bartholomew’s Church, Wickham Bishops. Tom was there with his Grooomsmen together with Norah, their Flowergirl and Daniel, their Pageboy. There was lots to do at the Church as always but everything was running smoothly. The Guests made their way into the Church for the service and it wasn’t long after that Amy arrived. During the service Daniel stepped up at the right time to hand over the Wedding Rings, a nice moment. After the service Amy and Tom came out of the Church, had a brief few minutes with their Guests before we got on with taking a few pictures. These were kept to a minimum as space was limited, there were many Guests and there would be time to take some more at the Wedding Reception at Smeetham Hall Barn. So, as the Guests threw confetti over Amy and Tom as they left the Church, Ian of Nixons Cars was waiting to take them on their journey. Smeetham Hall Barn looked absolutely wonderful as we arrived, basked in sunshine! The car dropped off Amy and Tom at the House right where the Drinks Reception was being held. After a couple of car pictures Amy and Tom mingled with their Guests whilst we captured informal pictures. Amy and Tom’s requested family pictures were taken in the shade of the trees which was appreciated by all concerned! Thank you Robyn for all your help! After Amy and Tom’s ‘together’pictures and before the Wedding Breakfast we took an ‘everybody’ picture. Coverage of The Speeches followed the Wedding Breakfast. A superb Speech was delivered by Matt,Tom’s Brother and Best Man which produced many many laughs!Whilst the guests were enjoying the evening sunshine, we whisked Amy and Tom away for a short while to get a few more pictures. Once the Evening Guests had arrived Tom and Amy took to the dance floor for their First Dance. Amy, Tom and ourselves were delighted later on with the sunset pictures to finish off. Happy with our results of a splendid day we then said our ‘goodbyes”. Thank you to Sue Whittle who was a Guest at this Wedding who recommended us to Amy and Tom. Sue ran a Photography business in Witham a few years ago and it was lovely to see her again. Thank you to Amy and Tom for all your hard work in making your Wedding Day go really well, it was such an memorable day!
