Once ready, we got on with taking a few pictures of Robyn and her party in the wonderful atmosphere of Leez Priory.

The Ceremony

Whilst this was happening the Guests were arriving with the Piper playing them in as they made their way into the Great Hall for the Ceremony. Soon it was time for Robyn to take her Father’s arm to go to the Great Hall. The winter sun was shining through the windows as Robyn and Alan exchanged their vows. Leez Priory Wedding PhotographerAfter the Ceremony, although it was a chilly, it was dry and sunny so we went outside to take some requested pictures. Finishing with the confetti pictures Robyn and Alan had time to mingle with their Guests inside the House while we  captured some informal pictures.  We took Robyn and Alan for a short walk around the grounds for their pictures together.

The Wedding Breakfast & Evening Celebratins

Not long after we returned it was time for the Guests and Robyn and Alan to make their way unto the Coach House for the Wedding Breakfast. We just love capturing these natural pictures. Following the Wedding Breakfast it was time for the Speeches. Emotion and laughter captured! Wedding Photographer Leez Priory ChelmsfordOnce these were over, everyone made their way back to the House for the evening celebrations. As the lights were on Leez Priory we took a couple of pictures of Robyn and Alan with Leez Priory in the background before the First Dance.  Robyn and Alan performed a rehearsed First Dance which was brilliant. After capturing a few images of the evening we then said our ‘goodbyes’.  A wonderful day!

A little while after the finish of the Ceremony we got on with taking a few requested pictures outside. Whilst we were outside the Guests threw rose petals over Charlotte and Kevin. Making the most of the weather and in the sunshine we then took Charlotte and Kevin for a short time to take their pictures.  A walk around the grounds provided opportunities for some nice pictures. Charlotte and Kevin still had time to talk to their Guests for the remainder of the Drinks Reception.  Charlotte and Kevin greeted their Guests during the Greeting Line before they walked unto the Coach House for the Wedding  Breakfast.

Pre-Wedding Picture shoot for Charlotte & Kevin

Pre-Wedding Picture shoot for Charlotte & Kevin

We met Charlotte and Kevin for their Pre-Wedding picture shoot at Hylands House, Chelmsford. This was one afternoon in the summer a few weeks ago.  We went for a walk around Hylands gardens chatting about the details of their forthcoming Wedding.  The grounds and gardens provide many photo opportunities for some nice relaxed pictures so every now and then we stopped to take some. It was an enjoyable time, very relaxed, which is how we like it and we ended up with some nice images. We are looking forward to Charlotte and Kevin’s Wedding at Leez Priory, Chelmsford, Essex  in the Autumn.

Whilst this was going on we took some informal pictures.Channels Wedding Photographer A short time later we got on with the requested family pictures. Later on the afternoon we took the Nicola, Nick and the Bridal Party for a few pictures around the front of Channels.  Once these were completed the Bridal Party returned to the Drinks Reception whilst we took Nicola and Nick’s pictures.

Nicola and Nick were showered in confetti just before the wedding Breakfast.

The Speeches followed the meal. Not to be missed was taking some pictures in the evening light so we then took Nicola and Nick to the lake for a walk around for a few minutes.

After the pictures in the garden with her Mother, the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls, it was time for us to depart for St Mary’s Church, Great Baddow. Philip was at the Church when we got there and when all the Groomsmen arrived we took a few pictures. Many of the Wedding Guests arrived at the Church on the double decker bus.  This always makes for some nice arrival pictures.

Nicola walked up the aisle holding a lighted candle in remembrance of her Father.

On our return more of the Evening Guests had arrived. With the Band set up the evening celebrations began. After capturing some evening pictures of the celebrations it was time for us to disappear, not leave!  Nicky and Phil as a surprise to their Guests were going to have Fireworks later on in the evening.

Hylands House Wedding Photography for Adelle & Danny

Hylands House Wedding Photography for Adelle & Danny

Hylands House Wedding Photography for Adelle and Danny’s Wedding was well worth waiting for! Hylands House is set in a magnificent park on the outskirts of Chelmsford, Essex, and it it has been too long since our previous visit!.Hylands House Wedding Photographer There was an extra special feeling about this Wedding for us considering we have known Adelle for a number of years as she grew up as a friend of our daughter.  When we arrived at Hylands House we went upstairs to see Adelle who was in the wonderful Bridal Room, with her Bridesmaids and Mother. Adelle was sipping her Champagne whilst her hair was being finished whilst Gemma, her twin sister, and cousin and Mum were getting ready. David met Danny, his Best Man and Ushers, downstairs for their pictures. Spoilt for choice where to take the pictures we did a few outside and a few inside Hylands House. Wedding Photographer Hylands House Time then for them to greet the Guests. Everything was going smoothly upstairs and it wasn’t long before it was time for Gemma to assist Adelle with getting her dress on. Wow! Adelle looked amazing! Hylands House Wedding Photographer With the Guests seated in the Drawing Room, Adelle took her Father’s arm and walked down the staircase with the Bridesmaids leading the way. Adelle entered the Drawing room to the sound of the piano, played by her friend Claire (who we also know very well), superb! After saying their vows and the Ceremony completed, they left the Drawing Room and went into the hall where the Reception Drinks were being served. The sun was out, it was getting warmer and warmer and the guests were directed out the back of the House.  There was a reason for keeping everyone from going out the front of Hylands House. Adelle and Danny chatted with their Guests until we got the nod that another star of the day was here! Hylands House Wedding PhotographerAlthough Adelle and Danny and a couple of close confidants knew Adelle’s horse would be making an appearance, nobody else did!  It was so nice to be there to capture the moments when Adelle and Danny and their Guests went outside. Added to this, Adelle and Danny’s dog  put in an appearance as well. After all, he was at their pre-wedding shoot! Hylands House Wedding PhotographyWe got on after a few minutes with the requested family pictures followed by some fun Bridal pictures and a few pictures of Adelle and Danny. After a break in the shade, a little later the confetti pictures were taken on the steps to the side of Hylands House before it was time to go into the Banqueting Hall. Time for the Speeches! Brilliant! Great reactions! Afternoon Tea was then served.  During this time Spencer Wood went around the tables providing ‘Magical’ entertainment. The guests enjoyed going outside to cool off and socialise before the evening entertainment in the Marquee.  Just before the evening Guests arrived we took Adelle and Danny to the formal gardens for a few pictures in the golden evening sun. On our return Adelle and Danny greeted their evening Guests before it was time for their First Dance. A brilliant rehearsed First Dance!Wedding Photographer Hylands House Leica MThe best place to see the sunset was past the far end of the car park so  it was a quick car ride!  We were back before people had noticed! After capturing some pictures of the evening Guests, we finally put our cameras down and chilled out! So lovely to see so many familiar faces and have catch ups.  Thank you Adelle and Danny for asking us to provide your Wedding Photography, it was a pleasure and a privilege.  A fabulous Wedding Day of Hylands House Wedding Photography for a wonderful couple!

Hylands House Engagement Session- Adelle and Danny

It was lovely to see Adelle and Danny again recently for their Hylands House Engagement Session.  We can’t believe where the time has gone since they first got in touch with us 18 months ago in the early stages of preparing for their Wedding. As Adelle and Danny are getting married at Hylands House, we arranged to meet there one Sunday morning recently. It is a wonderful setting, and with the weather being fine we got on and took a few pre-wedding pictures of Adelle and Danny, with a few of them with their dog as well! We are so looking forward to photographing Adelle and Danny’s Wedding, being extra special to us as we have known Adelle for a long time being a friend of our daughter.
