Fennes Wedding Photographers – Rachel & Paul

Fennes Wedding Photographers – Rachel & Paul

Rachel and Paul wanted a Fennes Wedding. It was a beautiful day and when we arrived we went upstairs to the Bridal Room to meet with Rachel. Hair and Make-up was in the final stages, Rachel was chilled! Paul, his Best Man and Ushers were downstairs almost ready for their pictures.  Once they were ready we took a few pictures of them before leaving them to meet the Wedding Guests. As the Guests arrived they had the option of sitting outside in the sunshine or sheltering from the rising temperature! Once Rachel and the girls were ready we took a few pictures of them and a few portraits of Rachel. The Guests were seated for the Outside Ceremony so Rachel, Emma, Rachel and Paul’s daughter, and the Bridesmaids came down the stairs into the Gold Room. After greeting Emma as she came into the room, Rachel’s Father then escorted his daughter out of the room and across the grass to where the Ceremony was going to take place.

Recommended Wedding Photographer FennesLuke, Paul’s son, handed over the rings at the required moment, and after completing the formalities the Ceremony was finished. Rachel and Paul then enjoyed the Drinks Reception with their Guests in the grounds of Fennes. A few requested family group pictures were taken during this time together with a few pictures of Rachel and Paul on their own. Wedding Photographer FennesIt was nice to go under the trees for a break from the sun! Later the Guests went first into the Pavilion, followed by the entrance of Rachel, Paul, Emma and Luke. for the start of the Wedding  Breakfast. The Speeches followed then everybody made their way out to the front of Fennes for the ‘everybody’ shot.  By this time the sun had disappeared and it was cooler! We caught up on a few pictures that we didn’t do earlier in the day, making sure Rachel and Paul had their family pictures that they wanted.

Fennes Wedding Photography for Natalie & Craig

Fennes Wedding Photography for Natalie & Craig

The wonderful Fennes was the choice of Wedding Venue for Natalie and Craig’s Wedding. An outside Ceremony was what Natalie and Craig were wishing for, so it was fingers crossed the weather would hold. Natalie was getting ready upstairs with the help of her Bridesmaids, so first of all we went to see them. Craig was getting ready in the Bridal Cottage with his son Max, and when they were in the final stages of getting ready we were there to take the pictures. Prior to Natalie and Craig’s Wedding Day, Natalie had dislocated her Collar bone so she was trying not to use her arm very much! Once the men were ready they had a few pictures taken outside Fennes before they went about their duties.

Recommended Wedding Photographers FennesNatalie and the girls were now ready and after her Stepdad saw her for the first look we took a few pictures of them all before it was time for Natalie to see the Registrars.  So far the weather was staying fine, maybe a little cooler that recently but nothing to stop the outdoor Ceremony. The Guests were seated and with everyone in place it was time for Natalie to walk the short distance to the Gazebo. Natalie and Craig’s dog led the way, carrying the rings! The rain stayed away, just!Fennes Recommended Wedding Photographer After the Ceremony the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception with some going inside and others staying outside eating ice cream! Later we got on with taking the requested family group pictures followed by a few pictures of Natalie and Craig around the grounds. Natalie wanted to be held up for a picture, the men and Max did this very  carefully! Wedding Photographer FennesThe Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion, followed by the Speeches. After the Speeches there was a little time before the start of the evening celebrations for a few relaxed pictures of Natalie and Craig in the Gold Room and Red Room at the front of the House. The cutting of the cake followed and then Natalie and Craig took to the dance floor for their First Dance.  Our day ended with an evening pictures of Natalie and Craig on the Bridge. A lovely day! Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerThank you to Sue and all at Fennes for looking after us.


Fennes Wedding Photos – Jaimey & Mehmet

Fennes Wedding Photos for Jaimey & Mehmet

The sun was shining for Jaimey and Mehmet’s Wedding day at Fennes.  We arrived at Fennes just before Mehmet arrived with his Groomsmen.  They made their way into the Library to finish getting ready.  Jaimey was upstairs having her hair done and the room was a hive of activity! Working around their preparations I got on with photographing the details and accessories, whilst David was downstairs with the men capturing their preparations.  David couldn’t leave the men as a surprise was in store for Mehmet!  Unbeknown to Mehmet, Jaimey had arranged for a Ferrari to arrive at Fennes and take him to St Mary’s Church, Bocking for the Church service. It wasn’t long before the Ferrari arrived and Memhmet’s Best Man persuaded Mehmet to go to the front of the house .  How surprised Mehmet was!  Grinning from ear to ear, Mehmet just stared at the Ferrarri before climbing in to have some pictures taken. Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes Jaimey was delighted her surprise had worked and enjoyed the feedback from the Bridesmaids and a few Guests who had watched the drama unfolding.  Mehmet  was then chauffeured to St Mary’s Church.  Time was racing by and with so many people getting ready we decided that I would go to the Church whilst David stayed behind capturing what was happening.  After meeting the men at the Church and capturing some pictures of the Guests as well as Mehmet, it wasn’t long before Jaimey arrived.  We captured the moments as they happened as they all made their way into the Church. Fennes Weddng Photography After the Church service we took a few family pictures outside the Church before the Guests made their way down to the gate for the confetti pictures. Before leaving the Church we took a couple pictures of Jaimey and Mehmet with the car before they left for the Reception.  As we were back at Fennes with Jaimey and Mehmet well before their Guests, we went to take some pictures on the bridge and around the grounds. Returning to the House we caught up on a few bridal shots of Jaimey that we didn’t get earlier in the Gold Room.Wedding Photographer Fennes Recommended As the Guests arrived they enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the gardens. The Wedding  Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and was followed by the Speeches. With the main Speeches delivered  a few of Jaimey and Mehmet’s relatives and friends said a few words.  It was a beautiful evening and afterwards Guests went outside and socialised.  Using the superb grounds we took some relaxed bridal party pictures before it was time for the First Dance.  Finishing Jaimey and Mehmet’s coverage of their special day a nice sunset picture.

Wedding Testimonial

It is always a pleasure to receive a ‘Thank You’ and we were overjoyed to receive this from Claire and Tim, who were married at The Fennes Estate in April 2011:-

Dear David and Sandra

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both for all your help in producing a stunning wedding album.  I am so happy with how it turned out, you have captured our big day perfectly – I could not fault a single thing, (and I am very renowned for being ‘fussy!!)

I will never tire of showing our album off to family and friends and I will treasure it forever.

Throughout the whole process you were very patient with me and made everything very easy, the draft album plan was particularly helpful and clever.

On the day itself you managed to capture so many amazing shots, without Tim and I, or our guests, having to spend very long at all posing for photographs, which was perfect.

Thank you!

Love Claire ( & Tim)

Here is a plan of their album:-
