Wedding Photography for Maria & Ian

It was a bright dry day when we arrived at Crabbs Barn for the Wedding Photography for Maria and Ian.  Maria was getting ready in the Bridal room and we joined her to take a few pictures of her Wedding Dress and Accessories, as well as a few ‘capture the moment’ shots.

When Ian arrived before he got on with  greeting too many of the Guests, we took a few pictures of him with his Groomsmen. Everyone mingled until it was time to go inside the Barn for the Ceremony. Maria was soon ready and was joined by the Bridesmaids. After a few pictures, it was time to walk around to the Barn. Rain started to fall so we hurried inside quicker than usual.Wedding Photography Essex

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographers – We had the pleasure of photographing Charlotte and Paul’s Wedding in the Summer last year at St Peter’s Church, Great Totham and then at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon. It was an early start as we started off at Charlotte’s family home where she was getting ready. Preparations were underway and going well. After taking some pictures of details and accessories and a few getting ready pictures, Charlotte, her Parents and Bridesmaids  got ready. It was a lovely day albeit a touch windy but in the garden we were sheltered so we took a few pictures of them all. When we left to go to the Church,they all had a little time to themselves, except Michael, Charlotte’s Brother, who was an Usher and came with us to the Church. Paul was at the Church with his Groomsmen so we took a few pictures of them before they carried out their duties. As the Guests arrived they chatted for a little while before going into the Church. Charlotte and Paul arrived in  a Horse and Carriage not long after.

St Peter's Church Great Totham Charlotte and her Father had travelled from the family home to Tiptree where their Horse and Carriage was awaiting them.  Charlotte had arranged this but had kept it secret from her Father. Nigel was beaming ear to ear when he arrived as was Charlotte! Time for them to go into the Church.
