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.
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. They enjoyed doing these as we did too! Just before the Wedding Breakfast the Guests threw confetti over Lydia on the stairs before they all sat down for the meal in the Long Gallery. After the Speeches, the Long Gallery was set up for the evening’s entertainment. It was such a beautiful evening everyone went outside, we took a little time out with Lydia and Terry for a few evening pictures and some pictures of the evening Guests as they arrived. Lydia and Terry cut their Wedding Cake later in the evening and took to the dance floor for their First Dance. A sunset concluded our coverage of Lydia and Terry’s wonderful Wedding Day!
