Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower – Lydia & Terry

Layer Marney Tower – Lydia and Terry chose the wonderful Layer Marney Tower for their Wedding.  First of all we started off at The Holiday Inn, Eight Ash Green, Colchester, which is where Lydia and her family were staying. Everything was running smoothly, so we were able to capture a flavour of the day’s preparations and taking pictures of the accessories. After a few pictures of the girls,  a couple of pictures of Lydia, who looked stunning in her Wedding Dress, and a couple with her Parents once they were ready we left them to it and went to Layer Marney Tower. We met with Terry, his Best Man, Ushers and his Parents straight away when we arrived.  After taking a few pictures of them, the double decker Bus had arrived with the Guests so we were able to take a few pictures of them. Terry and his Groomsmen greeted the Guests before Terry was ushered to see the Registrars. Lydia arrived a little later on in the Layer Marney car and as there was a little time spare we were able to take a couple of pictures. The Wedding Ceremony was held in the Corsellis Room and when it was time Lydia made her entrance accompanied by her Father and Bridesmaids. After the Ceremony, Lydia and Terry went for a short ride whilst their Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception in front of the tower whilst we took some informal pictures.   On Lydia and Terry’s return from their car ride, they walked up the path in the glorious sunshine towards the Tower and their Guests.

Wedding Photography Layer Marney Tower As Lydia and Terry’s Wedding was in the early afternoon there was plenty of time for them to mingle with their Guests and we had more time for taking the pictures in the afternoon. With Lydia and Terry being such a wonderfully relaxed couple, what more could we ask for! The requested family group pictures were taken and a little while afterwards we took the fun bridal party pictures.   Using the area in front of the Tower, such a wonderful setting and with the sun shining, these turned out well! Lydia and Terry wanted a few pictures around the grounds including the Barn. Layer Marney Recommended Wedding PhotographerThey enjoyed doing these as we did too!

Colchester Town Hall Photographer

Colchester Town Hall Photographer

Tara and Tom asked us to be their  Colchester Town Hall Photographer and afterwards at Green Island Gardens, Ardleigh, for their Summer Wedding.  It was a beautiful day when we arrived at Tara’s Parents’ home for Tara’s preparation pictures. Tara was having her hair finished and the Bridesmaids were putting their sarees on Everything was going well. When Mum was ready, she helped Tara put on her Wedding Dress. The garden was the place for a few pictures, giving a lovely backdrop and shade.  With a few portraits of Tara and a the pictures of the Bridesmaids and Family completed it was time for us to leave. Colchester Town Hall was where the Civil Ceremony was taking place. We left extra time for some known road closures and also holiday time traffic! turned out not to be a problem leaving us with sufficient time for Tom’s pictures with his Best Man and Ushers. We also managed a few Guest arrival pictures before they made their way up the stairs to the Moot Hall for the Ceremony.

Colchester Town Hall Photographer Tara arrived, we used the few minutes for a couple of pictures before she saw the Registrars and went upstairs.  With everybody seated Tara entered the impressive Moot Hall.

Tara and Tom then went outside into the brilliant sunshine and chatted a little while with their Guests, whilst the Chaffeur was opening the Champagne. Everybody then waved them off as they left the Town Hall for the Wedding Reception at Green Island Gardens. The Guests arrived, they made their way into the gardens for the Welcome Drinks and being entertained by a String Quartet. Tara and Tom arrived a while later. Whilst the Bridal Party were organising the confetti with the Guests, we took a few pictures of Tom and Tara. After being covered in confetti by their Guests, they then had time to socialise, whilst we took some informal pictures. We managed to  find a nice area in the shade to do the requested family pictures, followed by Tara and Tom’s pictures around the grounds as the time was racing by!  The Garden games proved to be a hit with the Guests during the rest of the afternoon and provided a few good reaction pictures.  Green Island Gardens Wedding PhotographerBeautiful backdrops and light! Evening Guests then started to arrive and after Tara and Tom spent a little time with them it was time for them all to move to the Marquee for the Wedding Breakfast.  It was at this point Tara and Tom went to get changed into traditional Sri Lankan clothing. They looked stunning! We were able to take a few pictures as they had to make their way over to the Marquee. Before the start of the meal the Father of the Bride made his Speech and after the main course, Tom made his Speech.
