The Old Rectory Wedding Photography for Catherine & Jamie

The Old Rectory, Dunton, was the chosen Wedding Venue for the winter Wedding of Catherine and Jamie. On the morning of their Wedding we arrived at Catherine’s Parents’ house to cover the final bridal preparations.  All things were going well and they all seemed relaxed and enjoying the occasion.  After taking a few detail and accessory pictures, it was time for the bridesmaids to get dressed.  It was then Catherine’s turn to get dressed, helped by her Mum.  Catherine’s Bridesmaids had not seen the dress so when Catherine walked into the room, some lovely moments were captured, she looked amazing!Wedding Photographer Essex The cars had arrived whilst we were taking the portrait pictures so afterwards we all went outside for some shots with the cars, then we left them to go the Venue.  Jamie was chatting with a few Guests when we arrived at The Old Rectory, so before many more arrived we took Jamie and his Best Man, Simon, for their pictures.  Catherine arrived a little while later in the glorious sunshine and made her way into the Manor House for the Civil Ceremony. After exchanging their vows, Catherine and Jamie went outside The Old Rectory for a couple of pictures before leaving for a quick drive in the classic American car . The beautiful weather allowed the Guests to mingle outside for the Drinks Reception for a short while, awaiting the return of Catherine and Jamie. It seemed a great opportunity to take an ‘Everybody’ picture with a difference with all the guests grouped around the  car. We moved swiftly onto the requested family group pictures before the fun pictures. The Old Rectory Dunton Wedding PhotographerThe late afternoon sun kept us all warm (ish)! Catherine and Jamie wanted to make the most of the wonderful weather so we quickly got on with their together pictures around the grounds of The Old Rectory.

Once Catherine and Jamie’s evening Guests arrived, they cut their Wedding Cake before their First Dance.  A brilliant rehearsed First Dance!Wedding Photographer EssexAfter taking a few evening pictures of their Guests, our day ended with some nightime pictures.  A wonderful December Wedding and a lovely couple.
