Wedding Photography for Debbie & Gbenga

Wedding Photography for Debbie & Gbenga

It was an early start for us for the wedding photography for Debbie and Gbenga. Debbie, her Mother and Bridesmaids were getting ready not at the family farm but at The Mill Hotel in Sudbury. Meeting with the girls in the room all the preparations were going well. Timings were spot on, we were able to take some getting ready pictures as well as a few of Debbie when she was dressed.

They were getting ready close to Debbie’s family home so we stopped off to see them.  We had a little time with them to capture a few preparation pictures.  For their portraits we found a shaded spot behind the cottage in the shelter of the trees as it was now a very hot day. Leaving them we then went the short distance to Debbie’s family home.  Waiting for us there were the two Flowergirls with their Mummies. Debbie wanted a couple of family pictures there before going to the Church. It worked well,  wethen left them and made our way to St Nicholas Church, Castle Hedingham. At Church we captured a few pictures of the guests as they arrived.  Debbie arrived with her Father shortly afterwards and walked down the path and into the Church.Wedding Photography Essex After the service, using the shelter of the trees from the sun, we got on with taking the requested family group pictures. This worked well and it wasn’t many minutes before we were able to leave for the Reception. The Marquee  was set up in the grounds of Debbie’s Parents Farm so we quickly took a few pictures of the details before we took some informal pictures of the Guests who were enjoying the Drinks Reception. Debbie and Gbenga arrived a little later, making for some great pictures as they entered the farm. Marquee Wedding Photographer EssexDebbie and Gbenga then enjoyed some social time with their Guests before some fun bridal party shots.  We took Debbie and Gbenga’s pre-wedding pictures at the Farm earlier in the summer so knew the opportunities for their ‘together’ pictures. We were looking forward to take these. Although still rather hot we took a few pictures of them around but decided to take some more later on. When everybody was seated for the Wedding Breakfast, one person who was designated from each table, put on an apron and took on the job of carving the joint of beef for their party. After the meal the Speeches followed.  It was a beautiful evening and more pictures beckoned! Debbie and Gbenga were more than happy to have a few pictures around the lake and then go into the cornfield.  Wonderful!Wedding Photographer Essex After Debbie and Gbenga’s First Dance a little later we then said our ‘goodbyes’.  A most rewarding day of wedding photography.

 
 
 

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photographers for Danielle & Rick

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photographers for Danielle & Rick

We were Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photographers for Danielle and Rick on a hot summer day. First of all Danielle was getting ready at The Mill Hotel, Sudbury. Danielle was there with her family and friends who were staying there, having arrived from Australia for her and Rick’s Wedding Day. Danielle was having her hair done so we got on with taking the accessory pictures,  keeping an eye on the preparations as well. The Bridesmaids were doing a grand job sorting everything out as Danielle’s Mum was unfortunately not feeling very well and couldn’t help as much as she wanted. Excitement was building as the time was as always, going quickly. With the hair and make-up finished they all changed into their dresses.  The Horse and Carriage arrived which increased the excitement.  We had a little time for a few pictures when  they were all dressed, including a picture of the girls looking down from the balcony of their room before we had to leave.

Wedding Photographer SuffolkDanielle and Rick wanted a Church Wedding which was at the wonderful St Andrews Church, Bulmer. We met Rick there with his Best Man and Ushers and took a few pictures.  Guests were arriving so they made their way into Church before the arrival of Danielle. A short time later Danielle arrived. Although the day was warm and bright, it was also windy so we took the minimum of pictures letting Danielle and the rest of the party get into the Church as quickly as possible.Wedding Photographer Suffolk After the service Danielle and Rick wanted a few family pictures at the Church before they walked down the avenue of trees while their Guests threw confetti. The happy couple got into the carriage for short journey to Smeetham Hall Barn which was the Venue for the Wedding Reception. After everybody arrived at Smeetham and had a chance to relax during the Drinks Reception we got on with creating some pictures. Taking the Bridal Party away to the Lake for some fun Bridal Party photographs worked well, before they left us with Danielle and Rick for their together pictures.Smeetham Hall Barn Recommended Wedding Photographer Opportunities for lovely pictures at Smeetham are plentiful, if there is the time and the couple want the pictures! After taking Danielle and Rick’s  pictures it was time for the greeting line, before the start of the Wedding Breakfast. Good timing, it then rained for a while! Speeches were during the meal, introduced by Jimmy Lee Entertainment and Danielle and Rick cut their Wedding Cake. During the evening we captured a few pictures  of the evening celebrations including the First Dance. Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photographers From when Danielle booked us for their Wedding, she really wanted a sunset, but as we know this cannot be ordered or guaranteed! Earlier on they, got a rainbow, fingers crossed for a sunset. Danielle and Rick spent the time with us, watching the sun go down, a beautiful sunset! A wonderful end to our day as Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photographers.
