Prested Hall Wedding Photography – Charlotte & Jonathan

Prested Hall Wedding Photography

Prested Hall Wedding Photography – It was nice to be asked by Jonathan and Charli to photograph their Wedding at St Nicholas Church, Witham and then Prested Hall, Feering. We have known Jonathan since he was born and it was a pleasure to provide Wedding Photography for them. Prested Hall was where we started on the day of Charli and Jonathan’s Wedding. Charli, her Mother and Bridesmaids were having their hair and make-up done before moving to the Dingle.  After capturing a few ‘getting ready’ shots, we then moved to the Dingle where we took a few pictures of Charli’s Wedding Dress and accessories. It was soon time for Charli to move from the Spa to the Dingle to get dressed, assisted by her Mum. With everybody ready we took a few pictures outside before leaving to go to our local Church St Nicholas, Witham, where the Wedding service was taking place. We met Jonathan and as a few guests had started to arrive we promptly took his pictures together with his Best Men and Ushers. Once the Guests had made their way into the Church, Leah the Flowergirl joined Charli and the Bridesmaids who had just arrived and  we had a few extra minutes for a some nice pictures.  Charli then took her Father’s arm and walked up the path and into the Church.

Everybody then threw confetti over Charli and Jonathan as they walked towards the Wedding car, making for some nice relaxed images.Prested Hall Wedding Photographer  Arriving at Prested Hall everybody socialised during the Drinks Reception and after the car pictures so did Charli and Jonathan.  With the Wedding Breakfast time not far off we decided to take Charli and Jonathan for their pictures over the bridge.

Everybody then went outside for a big group photo  before the evening entertainment.  Charli, Jonathan and ourselves went for a stroll in the grounds, finding a patch of bluebells, just right for some relaxed evening pictures.  On our return the Band had set up, evening Guests had arrived and Charli and Jonathan had their First Dance. Later Jonathan surprised Charli with joining the Band playing his Guitar for a couple of songs. A little while later we said goodbye, finished with a couple of nice evening pictures. Another great day of Prested Hall Wedding Photography Essex Wedding Photographer Prested Hall Congratulations to Charli and Jonathan! A wonderful day!


Prested Hall Wedding Photography for Anna & Chris

Prested Hall Wedding Photography – It was an early start for us arriving at Anna’s Parents’ home for the preparation pictures.  It was a beautiful day, and preparations were well underway. After capturing the getting ready shots, it was time for a few pictures in the garden which Anna’s Dad had worked so hard on to provide a nice backdrop.  It was sunny and very humid so we took the garden pictures as quickly as we could! Essex Wedding Photographer David and I then left to go St Nicolas Church, Witham. Chris and his Groomsmen were at the Church when we arrived and we managed to take a few pictures of them in between their duties.  It wasn’t long before Anna arrived, driven to the Church by her Dad in the E-Type Jag. With all the Guests in the Church she made her way up the path and into the Church with her Dad followed by the Bridesmaids. During the service there was an almighty downpour which was quickly followed by brilliant sunshine!  At the end of the Ceremony, Anna and Chris led their Guests out of the Church for some requested family photographs. Once these were finished everybody made their way to the gate for the confetti pictures, before leaving for the Reception. Wedding Photographer Essex Anna and Chris wanted some pictures with the car along the driveway to Prested Hall, which we were happy to do.  Timings were perfect, us arriving, getting set up just as they turned into the driveway.  It was a great fun session with Anna and Chris also rehearsing (without music!) their dance steps for later, with us getting the fun images we wanted.  Anna and Chris then joined their Guests for the Drinks Reception whilst we took a few informal pictures. A little while later as we were starting to organise the everybody picture, the rain made another appearance!  The Wedding Breakfast beckoned!  After the meal, we covered the Speeches, which was then followed by a second attempt at the ‘everybody’ picture with more  success this time!  Before the start of the evening celebrations and the arrival of their evening Guests, we took the happy couple for a short walk around the grounds of Prested Hall for a few relaxed pictures.  Being a day of good but mixed weather, they ended up with a brilliant sunset picture as well as a rainbow picture!Wedding Photographer Essex Essex Wedding Photographer Later Anna and Chris’ s rehearsed First Dance wowed their Guests before they joined them on the dance floor.  It was nice to see familiar family members again. An amazing Wedding!


Wedding Photography for Cara & Ben – The Essex Barn at The White Hart, Great Yeldham

Cara was busy with her final preparations when we arrived at her home, which we captured before leaving to go to St Nicolas Church, Witham for the Church service. Guests were arriving but we were able to take squeeze in a few pictures of Ben with his Best Men and Ushers before Cara arrived.  Following the Ceremony and a few family group pictures in the Churchyard Cara and Ben were showered in confetti at the gate, before leaving for The White Hart at Great Yeldham. wedding-photographer-essex-st-nicolas church-witham Whilst all the Guests were arriving, Cara and Ben wanted to get their together pictures taken  in the grounds, before mingling with their Guests in the Drinks white-hart-great-yeldham Later after a discussion with Hayley, the Wedding Co-Ordinator, we decided the best time to do the ‘everybody’ shot was when the Guests moved between the Drinks Reception and the Wedding Breakfast.  After the Wedding Breakfast we captured the expressions of the Speeches before Guests exited the Barn to enjoy the evening sun.  This was an opportunity to complete the pictures of the white hart-great yeldham Our finishing pictures were of Cara and Ben dancing the night away.
