Wedding Photography Spains Hall for Lucy & Steve
It was nice to be asked to photograph Lucy and Steve’s Wedding at Spains Hall, Finchingfield. On arrival at Spains Hall, after saying ‘hello’ to Lucy who was getting ready in the Tapestry Room, David went off to find the men. Steve, his Best Man, Ushers and Parents were in Crest Lodge. Steve’s final preparations were going well as were Lucy’s. The Flowergirls, Rebecca and Amelia, Lucy and Steve’s daughter, were enjoying getting ready and giving a helping hand. When the men were ready, they had a few pictures taken in the garden before walking over to the House for the Ceremony. With Lucy dressed, looking lovely, and everybody else ready, Lucy’s Dad joined them for some pictures. After we had taken the Bridal portraits of Lucy, it was time to go down the stairs for Luct to meet with the Registrars. The Wedding Guests were seated in the Elizabethan Hall awaiting the Ceremony. The Flowergirls led the way into the Hall followed by Lianne, the Bridesmaid and finally Lucy and her Dad. After all the formalities were completed, Lucy and Steve exited the room had a few minutes to themselves whilst the Guests were handed confetti and went outside. Lucy and Steve were covered in confetti as they made their way into the grounds surrounding Spains Hall. The happy couple then greeted their Guests during the Drinks Reception before we got on with the requested family photos. It was a glorious day, so hot, but we managed to take some fun bridal party pictures in next to no time and take Lucy and Steve for a few minutes around the grounds for their pictures. Just before the Wedding Breakfast there was time for the ‘everybody’ shot in front of the Hall before they made their way over to the Stables. The Speeches followed the meal. While the room was prepared for the evening, the Guests enjoyed the evening sunshine, relaxing and participating in the garden games. Amelia, Rebecca and the other children had fun running around as well. During the evening we took some informal pictures of the evening Guests. As it was now cooler we took Lucy and Steve for a few minutes along the driveway for some evening pictures before re-joining their Guests. With the turnaround complete everybody made their way back into the room for the evening celebrations to begin, starting with the First Dance, then it was the party! A beautiful day, a beautiful sunset to finish! After taking this picture we took our leave. It was nice working with Helga, the Wedding Co-ordinator, seeing Nina of Piana DJ. Thank you Lucy and Steve, you were brilliant, for being part of your Wedding, we enjoyed it!
