Wedding Photography Fennes for Stephanie & Raymond

Wedding Photography Fennes – We arrived early on the morning of Stephanie and Raymond’s Wedding Day at The Fennes Estate, Bocking, Essex.  Stephanie was getting ready there with her family, Bridesmaids, her Flowergirl and Pageboy, prior to her Church Wedding.  Lots of activity was going on with plenty of images to capture. With the detail pictures taken, it wasn’t long before the girls were ready for a few portraits.  Keeping an eye on the time we were able to take some nice pictures before it was time for us to leave to go to the Church.  The beautiful Thaxted Parish Church was where Stephanie and Raymond were going to be married.  It was a dry day and with the Wedding Guests arriving and walking down the path, and Raymond and his Groomsmen walking down the road and into the Church, we captured some great relaxed shots. With Ray’s posed pictures  taken, it wasn’t long before Stephanie arrived. Thaxted Church is one of our favourite churches being large and light giving us opportunities to capture moments of the service unobtrusively.  At the end of the service Stephanie and Ray exited the Church and greeted their Guests before a few close family photos.  The happy couple were then showered in confetti before leaving for Fennes.  Once at Fennes, wanting to make the most of the nice weather we took Stephanie and Ray onto the Bridge before their Guests arrived. Stephanie and Ray wanted an everybody shot in the shape of a heart, which we have done a few times before but not with so many Guests! The timing of this was important, a surprise fly-past was to follow and a massive ‘thank you’ goes to Nicola of Fennes for her help!  After the fly-past,it was time for the Wedding Breakfast, followed by the Speeches. Everybody then mingled throughout the House as evening Guests arrived.  The evening entertainment was to be held in the Banqueting Hall and when the Band was ready. Stephanie and Ray led their Guests into the room for the dancing to begin. A lovely day!

Wedding Photography for Gemma & Neil – Thaxted Parish Church & Hedingham Castle

Gemma’s Parents home was the starting point of our photography coverage for Gemma and Neil’s Wedding Day.  After photographing various details and getting ready pictures we took Gemma into the lovely garden for some pictures before leaving for Thaxted Parish Church. With a lovely Church and friendly Vicar, and fine weather, we took some photographs of Neil and his Attendants, Guests, before Gemma and her Dad arrived.  The Church being large and light allowed us to take some beautiful photogaphs of Gemma and Neil as they were married. wedding-photographer-essex-thaxted parish church Following the Church service, Gemma and Neil mingled with their Guests in between a few family photographs the couple requested.  Gemma and Neil wanted a couple of pictures in Finchingfield, where we had taken their pre-wedding pictures, so the four of us made a short stop there before progressing to Hedingham Castle.  The grounds of Hedingham Castle and House made for some wonderful informal as well as formal pictures which we captured before the Wedding Breakfast commenced. wedding-photographer-essex-hedingham castle We took Gemma and Neil for a few early evening Bride and Groom portraits after the Wedding Breakfast, followed by the First Dance and a few pictures of their Evening Guests before castle
