Great e-mail from Sarah & Steve whose wedding we photographed at Crabbs Barn recently. Full blog post to follow!
Hi David & Sandra,
Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures you took of our wedding, we were over the moon when we looked through them! They are even better than we hoped for & you both made us feel so relaxed on the day. It was such an amazing day & you have made sure we have some wonderful pictures to remember it by!
Thank you again for all your hard work on the day, we have already been busy telling all our engaged friends to look you up when the time comes!
It was a lovely hot sunny day when David and I arrived at Anne’s family home for the final bridal preparations. Everything was running smoothly and before long Anne and her Bridesmaids were ready for some photographs in the garden. Anne and Stephen chose to be married in the lovely St. Michael’s Church, Braintree, (a great favourite of ours – we were married there !). Stephen, his Best Man and Ushers were greeting Guests when we arrived but we were able to steal them away for a few minutes for some pictures. After the Church service, Anne, Stephen and their Guests mingled in the grounds of the Church in between the taking their family group photographs. A special picture not to be missed was of Anne with the children from her Class at School. Anne and Stephen made their way out of the Church though a shower of confetti for the drive to Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon, for the Reception. A few Bride and Groom pictures, as well as informal images were taken at times before the Wedding Breakfast. Early evening light provides us with some of our best pictures and Anne and Stephen were keen to take advantage of our experience, so after Speeches, we created some great photographs, walking in the lane, with the long grass and the setting sun, wonderful! Our night ended with pictures of evening Guests and the First Dance. A great day, thank you Anne and Stephen!
We arrived at Lisa and Nicholas’ home to a hive of activity, with Bridesmaids, Flowergirls and Pageboys getting dressed for the big day! All was going well, although as always the last hour of preparations goes twice as quick. Whilst Lisa was getting ready we were able to take some pictures of all the attendants outside, followed by a few pictures of Lisa. Holy Family Roman Catholic Church in Witham was Lisa and Nick’s choice of where to be married and what a lovely Church it is! Nick and his Groomsmen were at the Church greeting Guests, so after a couple of pictures, Lisa arrived ready for the service. After the service with clouds threatening we took a few requested family photographs outside the Church and left to go to Crabbs Barn for the Reception. Despite a rain shower we were able to go outside at Crabbs Barn for their pictures. Brandon and Isabelle, Lisa and Nick’s children, enjoyed being outside and provided us with some relaxed shots, as did the Wedding Guests. After covering the Speeches after the Wedding Breakfast we were able to take Lisa and Nick for some bridal portraits, finishing with some evening photographs.
