Parklands Wedding Photographer for Kerry and Richard

It was a beautiful day for Kerry and Richard’s Wedding at Quendon Hall.   Our day started with Kerry’s bridal preparations in the Changing Rooms, where she was assisted by her Bridesmaid, Rachael. David went to find Richard who was downstairs to take a few pictures of him before the Ceremony.  Kerry moved to the Red Room for a few pictures, whilst the Guests were arriving and being shown to their seats. A short time later Kerry took her Father’s arm and entered the Banqueting Hall for the Ceremony.  Afterwards Kerry and Richard led their Guests outside, not quite believing the wonderful late autumnal weather! Their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception and during the afternoon joined Kerry and Richard for a few family and friends pictures around the fountain.  Kerry and Richard wanted some pictures around the grounds of Parklands as well as in the rooms in the house.  Leaving the Wedding Guests for a short while, off we went.

Wedding Photography for Sally & Lee – Parklands, Quendon Hall

It was a beautiful day when we arrived at Parklands, Quendon Hall, for the Wedding of Sally and Lee.  The girls were getting ready and whilst I stayed with the girls, David went off to meet with the boys.  Having taken a few pictures of Lee, his Best Man and Ushers in the grounds of Parklands, the girls portraits were taken in the preparation rooms.  Sally and Lee chose to have an indoor Civil Ceremony and afterwards led their Guests outside for the Drinks Reception where they socialised for a little while before we got on with the requested family pictures and fun bridal party pictures.   We left the Guests to enjoy the sunshine whilst Sally and Lee joined us for a short stroll around Parklands.  With some nice pictures captured by the Lake and some walking shots it was time to go back. wedding-photographer-essex-parklands-quendon-hallWith some lovely evening light after the Wedding Breakfast, we took  Sally and Lee for a few more pictures which they wanted around Parklands, before the Evening Reception and their First Dance together, which were more than happy to do!

Wedding Photography for Gemma & Steve – Parklands, Quendon Hall

Gemma and Steve were so looking forward to their Wedding at Parklands, Quendon Hall and so were we.  As with many, their Wedding had been so long in the planning  but with Gemma and Steve they had a few more considerations.  Arriving at Parklands we made our way upto the Bridal Changing rooms where Gemma, her Mum and Bridesmaids were having their make-up done.  Gemma was having her hair done as well and how lovely it looked!  With hair and make up finished Gemma moved to the red room, which gave us more space with the Flowergirls, Bridesmaids and Pageboy! In between all this, we managed to meet Steve downstairs in the House capturing a few pictures of him with his Best Man and Ushers before we then returned to take some pictures of Gemma with all her Attendants before it was time for her to see the Registrars.   With Guests seated, Gemma made her entrance into the Civil Ceremony with her Mum at her side. After the Ceremony, although chilly outside but dry, we took the family group photographs they wanted in front of the fountain. Gemma, Steve and ourselves left the Guests socialising and enjoying the drinks reception whilst we went around the lovely grounds of Parklands. wedding-photographer-essex-parklands-quendon-hallThe sun came out on cue as we photographed the happy couple at the lake end, but not wanting to keep Gemma and Steve away from their guests for too long we soon sent then back to the The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and once their Guests were seated, the speeches took place.  Afterwards and before the evening celebrations started, as Gemma and Steve wanted some images capturing the inside of Parklands we spent a short time with them taking these pictures. wedding-photographer-essex-parklands-quendon-hall Evening Guests arrived shortly afterwards and witnessed the cake cutting before the evening went into full swing.  A memorable day with endless smiles, a special couple, nothing was too much trouble for Gemma and Steve, which considering Gemma is wheelchair bound, was a big effort, in and out of her chair all day!  Thank you!

It was a mild sunny late Autumn day when we arrived at Parklands for the Wedding of Carrie-Anne and Adam.  With plenty going on, Carrie-Anne, the Bridesmaids, the flower girls all getting ready, there was much to photograph.  Adam had some pictures taken when he was ready before greeting the Guests as they were arriving. wedding-photographer-essex-parklands Following the Civil Ceremony, Carrie-Anne and Adam made their way outside towards the fountain which made a beautiful backdrop to some pictures.  Canapes and Drinks were enjoyed by everybody, whilst some group pictures were taken.  Later, making the most of the wonderful weather and grounds we took Carrie-Anne and Adam for a walk around Parklands, ending with some lovely Bride and Groom together shots down the drive to hall After the Wedding Breakfast and Speeches, Carrie-Anne and Adam asked for some pictures of the two of them at the Parklands Bridal Cottage.  Thanks to Vince of Parklands acting as Chaffeur this happened and with not keeping them from their Guests for too bridal cottage The Evening Guests arrived before the First Dance and a short time afterwards we took our leave.
