Wedding Photography The Lawn – Tracy and Ben

It was lovely to be back at the wonderful Wedding Venue, The Lawn for the Wedding of Tracy and Ben. The weather was beautiful and the setting was glorious. Wedding Photographer EssexTracy was getting ready in the Bride’s Room in the Manor House together with her Bridesmaids, and Mum. Tracy and the girls were enjoying the moments of the day and it was nice to capture these. Meanwhile, Ben was outside, having arrived and greeting a few Guests. We managed to prise him away for some pictures of him and his Groomsmen before more Guests arrived. Tracy and the girls were now ready. Tracy’s Grandad was giving her away so there were some lovely joyful  moments when he first saw her, Tracy looked lovely. Whilst waiting for the Guests to be seated for the Ceremony, the Flowergirls enjoyed watching from above the activities. The Bridesmaids and Flowergirls led the way when all was ready, followed by Tracy accompanied by her Grandad. Wedding Photographer The LawnAfter the Ceremony Tracy and Ben with their glass of Champagne went outside into the sunshine. The Guests followed and they all socialised for a little while, allowing for us to get some natural shots. Wedding Photography The LawnDuring the afternoon we took the requested family pictures and later pictures of Tracy and Ben around the grounds, finishing off with the confetti pictures on the steps.Wedding Photographer Essex The Wedding Breakfast beckoned, so the Guests took their places leaving Tracy and Ben a few minutes by themselves.  Making sure they had chilling out time, just before they went inside a couple of pictures of Tracy swirling her dress. The Orangery looked lovely! In fact the colours Tracy and Ben had chosen for their Wedding was superb.  After the meal it was time for the Speeches. Good Speeches, great reactions! Once these were completed everybody went outside to enjoy the evening sunshine.  The Flowergirls went off to enjoy the freedom of playing and running about on the lawn as they had done earlier in the afternoon  as Tracy and Ben’s evening Guests arrived. After Tracy and Ben had greeted a few of them we took them for a few pictures inside the house upstairs and on the balcony. Tracy threw her bouquet afterwards from the Balcony to the waiting girls below. Great pictures! After cutting their Wedding Cake, Tracy and Ben took to the dance floor for their First Dance, followed by their Guests. We couldn’t have asked for a better sunset,  it was brilliant! Tracy and Ben then rejoined their Guess to continue dancing which is when we said ‘goodbye’. A wonderful day and a lovely couple!Essex Wedding Photographer

David and I prefer to get to know our couples a little bit better before their Wedding Day so we enjoy meeting them at a convenient time and place.  We met up with Tracy and Ben one afternoon a few weeks ago at Hadleigh Country Park. Deciding to go for a walk and take some pictures, first of all, was a good call, it was dry and bright and not too windy.  By the time we had finished we were windswept, so it was nice to stop for a hot drink and a chat! Tracy and Ben are getting married in the summer at The Lawn, Rochford.

On our arrival we made our way upstairs to the Brides Room where there was much excitement. Whilst the girls were getting ready, Lee, the Best Man and the Ushers had arrived, so it was off downstairs to meet them and take a few pictures of them all.

With the girls ready we took their photographs before Vicky’s dad entered the room. Some lovely joyous moments were captured, followed by some more as Amelia, the Flowergirl and George the Pageboy saw Vicky.

Afterwards the happy couple led their Guests outside for the Drinks Reception. The weather was on our side, dry, but overcast, so we were able to get on with the requested group pictures outside.  After making sure Vicky and Lee had some time to relax and enjoy some of the afternoon with their Guests, we took a few fun shots of the Bridal Party. This was followed by taking Vicky and Lee for a short walk in the grounds for their together shots with the sun making an appearance.

Whilst the superb Band were finishing setting up we took some informal pictures of couples and evening Guests. Soon it was time for Vicky and Lee to cut their Wedding Cake and take to the floor for their First Dance.  A little while later it was time for us to say goodbye after a lovely day. It was nice to see Lee’s Parents, Lanna and Dave together with Lee’s brother, Glenn and his wife Kate, whose Wedding we photographed in at Newland Hall, Chelmsford, in 2009. Great also to see many familiar faces too numerous to list!
