Just a quick email to thank you once again for being our wedding photographers. Pete and I are delighted with the photo book and we know we will enjoy looking at the pictures for years to come.
Marquee weddings are often booked at shorter notice so we regularly miss out. This is due to us being booked at one of the many venues where we are recommended. Alice and Pete booked us earlier for their Wedding and we were very pleased we were free!
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.
We then left to go to St Nicholas Church, Tolleshunt D’arcy where Alice and Peter were to be married. We had a little time to take a few pictures of Peter, his Best Man, Usher before the arrival of Alice. Alice’s friend drove her to the Church in her Morris MG and then Alice’s two brothers escorted into the Church. After the service, Alice and Peter exited the Church, followed by their Guests and mingled in the sunshine for a short while. 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. Once 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. Just before leaving Alice and Peter braved the weather for a couple of night pictures with the lights outside. Thank you! A nice ending to a lovely day!
