Cressing Temple Barns Wedding Photography for Janine & Richard

Janine and Richard booked us for Cressing Temple Barns wedding photography.  It was a dry bright although windy day when we arrived at Cressing Temple. We met Richard with his Parents and made our way over to the house where the Ceremony was going to take place.  After taking a few pictures of Richard and then a couple of him with his Parents it was soon time for him to see the Registrars.

Janine and Richard’s daughter Grace had had a sleep in the car and was a bit surprised at what was happening when she woke up! We captured the moments and with the minimum fuss were able to take a few pictures of Janine, her Mother and Father and Grace. After seeing the Registrars, Janine took her Father’s arm and went into the room for the Ceremony.Cressing Temple Wedding Photographer The walled garden provided a beautiful backdrop to some pictures afterwards. A few requested pictures were taken followed by a few of Janine and a few of Janine and Richard together.

It was soon time for Janine and Richard to be on their way to the Wedding Reception so it was time for us to say our ‘goodbyes’. Janine and Richard wanted to have a small relaxed Wedding celebration and that is just what it turned out to be. It was a pleasure to work with this lovely family for Cressing Temple Barns Wedding Photography.

 

 
 
 

Prested Hall Wedding Photography for Nicola and Robert

Prested Hall Wedding Photography for Nicola and Robert

Prested Hall was the chosen Wedding Venue for Nicola and Rob’s Wedding. Arriving at Prested Hall we went upstairs to see Nicola. It was nice and relaxed up there with Nicola having the finishing touches applied to her hair and make-up. Robert was downstairs and once he was ready we took a few pictures of him, and a a couple of pictures with his Parents, Brother and Nephews. Robert then went off to join his Guests. Once Nicola was ready, her Father came into the room and saw her before we got on with a few pictures.

Leaving the Guests for a few minutes we took Robert and Nicola for a few pictures around the grounds of Prested Hall. Not keeping them too long, we managed to take some nice pictures on and over the bridge.  This was  late Autumn and the light was going fast. Later, finishing off with a  picture as the sun was going down was an added bonus.Prested Hall Wedding Photography Returning we took a few more requested pictures before we took Nicola and Robert into the Orangery to take a picture of them with their Wedding Cake. It was then time for the Wedding Breakfast.  Once everyone had taken their seats we took table shots.  Our coverage of Nicola and Robert’s Wedding finished once the meal was served. Congratulations Nicola and Robert, it was a lovely Wedding and we wish you all the best.

Wedding Photography for Sally & Steve – Braxted Park, Witham

Sally and Steve chose the beautiful Wedding Venue, Braxted Park, for their Wedding.  Sally was getting ready in the house, and when we arrived preparations were going well and with ample space for everybody to move around some nice images were captured.  The rain that had been falling during the morning fortunately had stopped for some pictures of Steve outside with his Best Man and Parents. Sally and Steve had an early Wedding Ceremony  as they wanted ” to make the most of a wonderful day”.  The Wedding Ceremony was held in the Orangery and afterwards, Sally and Steve and ourselves went out towards the front of the House, whilst the Guests went the other way to the steps for the ‘everybody’ picture. wedding-photographer-essex-braxted park After this picture, with help from the Bridesmaids in keeping Sally’s dress from getting wet, Sally and Steve were showered in confetti before the Drinks Reception.  Allowing time for socialising and for us taking some informal pictures, a few requested family photographs were taken, before making our way towards the Gazebo, where it was dry underfoot for some pictures. With the Bridal Party joining us as well we took a few fun pictures before they returned to the Pavilion leaving us with Sally and Steve.  A change of footwear for Sally, an extremely quick drive to the Lake, a few pictures before returning to their Guests.  The Wedding Breakfast was followed by the Speeches and towards the latter part of the Speeches  the late afternoon sun was peering through the trees so after the Speeches Sally and Steve were more than happy to take advantage of this. wedding-photographer-essex-braxted park Sally and Steve’s evening celebrations started with the arrival of their evening Guests, then the Bouquet toss before the First Dance.  Sally and Steve performed a fantastic rehearsed First Dance which delighted everybody. With the lights on around Braxted Park, Sally and Steve wanted a few evening pictures which we enjoyed doing before leaving them to continue with their party.    wedding-photographer-essex-braxted park

 
 
 

Pre-Wedding Pictures

By the time we arrived at Danbury Country Park early one morning recently, the sun was beginning to break through, ready for some pre-wedding pictures for Sally and Steve.  We took an enjoyable stroll around the park, stopping at various spots for some lovely photographs.  Sally and Steve are getting married at Braxted Park, Witham, later in the year. wedding-photographer-essex-pre-wedding-pictures-danbury country park

 
 
 

Styles of Photography

Styles of Photography available in the wedding photography market:-

Standard – Lots of group pictures and straight forward often unflattering Bride & Groom pictures.

Classical – carefully arranged formal pictures making everyone look their best before the picture is taken. You and you guests may need patience.

Reportage – capture the action without interfering with the couples day (often now called ‘Documentary’ as Reportage sometimes has a poor reputation). When we see great examples of ‘Documentary’ wedding photography it is often because the couple have been coached before the day in what is expected!

Lifestyle – lots of Photoshop to mess up the colours and give the pictures a ‘modern’ look. Couples in natural (not always flattering) poses.

We like to think of our Wedding Photography as contemporary Story telling. We are happy to capture real action if it looks good but we are also happy to encourage ‘moments’ to happen! Family groups and Classical pictures are usually required but do not have to take the whole day and we work in a fairly informal way. By photographing our couples at some point during their Engagement they are generally more relaxed on the big day and understand how we would like them to stand to make them look their best. Why not contact us and see what a whole wedding looks like?
