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!

Wedding Photography for Natalie & Wayne – Parklands, Quendon Hall

It was a lovely day in February, for the Wedding of Natalie and Wayne at Parklands, Quendon Hall. Natalie was just having the final touches applied to her make-up, when we arrived, which worked well for us as we photographed this as well as the detail shots. As the Men were getting ready at Parklands as well, David went and captured the laughter there.  Natalie then moved to one of the other rooms for her photographs where we captured some lovely images. Following the Civil Ceremony, Natalie, Wayne and their Guests enjoyed a Drinks Reception in the grounds of Parklands in the warm sunshine. A few family photographs were followed by a short break for the couple, then we took Natalie and Wayne for a short walk around the superb grounds of Parklands, for their pictures, where there are so many opportunities, without taking too much time.  The Pavilion was the setting for Natalie and Wayne’s evening celebrations, and after taking some First Dance pictures  we left them to finish enjoying their Wedding Day.  It was nice to meet Richard of ‘Your Perfect Day’ Video and look forward to working with him again during the year.
