Essex Wedding Photographers at Crabbs Barn for Jasmine and Jake
We had the pleasure to be Essex Wedding Photographers at Crabbs Barn for Jasmine and Jake – The weather was beautiful for Jasmine and Jake’s Wedding in the Summer at Crabbs Barn. Our day started at the fabulous Air B & B Maysent House, Bocking, Braintree. Jasmine and Jake had hired out this house for a couple of days. Jasmine, the two Mums and the girls were getting ready there and it was perfect. When we arrived the preparations were going well. We chatted with Pam, Jasmine’s Mum for a few minutes to catch up as we took her Wedding photographs when she married Dan at Fennes a few years ago.
It was nice to see Michelle of Bumblebee Bridal again (we have worked with her a lot recently) working her magic on the girls’ hair. Just loved the colour scheme and the flowers in the hair! Whilst the hair and make up preparations were going on in the downstairs rooms and after capturing some images we went upstairs to take pictures of Jasmine’s dress and accessories. It was nice to have room to take these pictures. These taken, the Bridesmaids were getting dressed, Jasmine’s Mum, Pam, who was ready then helped Jasmine get dressed. After a few pictures we all went outside into the garden. A shady area provided enough room for us to take a few pictures of them all before we left to go to the wedding. Good timing!
We arrived at Crabbs Barn just as Jake did! Jake and his Best Men had a few pictures taken before they carried out their duties. Guests mingled in the gardens before Jasmine arrived so we were able to capture a few informal pictures before they made their way into the Barn for the Ceremony. Jasmine’s Mum, Pam, escorted her into the Barn when it was time for the Ceremony. Following the Ceremony everyone went outside for the Dove release.
During the Drinks Reception we got on with taking the required family pictures. There was time for Jasmine and Jake to have several breaks from various pictures to socialise with their Guests. Jasmine and Jake were covered with petals just before going inside the Barn for the BBQ.
The Speeches followed the meal and afterwards every went outside into the grounds to enjoy the evening sunshine. The evening light was superb so we went with Jasmine and Jake for a walk in the lane. Lovely pictures! When we returned the Evening Guests had arrived and they joined the audience as they were being entertained by the fabulous Magician, Nick Crown. As always some great reactions! Today also provided a great Sunset which was followed by Jasmine and Jake cutting their Wedding cake then taking to the dance floor for their First Dance. It wasn’t long after that we said our goodbyes. A beautiful day, and such a lovely couple.
