Susannah and Daniel booked us for Evening Wedding Photography when they were married at the popular Crabbs Barn earlier in the year.
When we arrived at Crabbs Barn, Susannah was almost ready and we had enough time to take a few pictures of her and her family. The weather was fine to take some pictures outside the Bridal Room. The sun going down was a bonus and provided a nice setting. Daniel had a few pictures taken before going in to the Barn for the Ceremony.
Following the Ceremony for a few minutes we took Susannah and Daniel off for a few pictures whilst the Guests were served drinks. Susannah and Daniel had time to mingle with their Guests for a short time afterwards.
It was a bright dry day when we arrived at Crabbs Barn for the Wedding Photography for Maria and Ian. Maria was getting ready in the Bridal room and we joined her to take a few pictures of her Wedding Dress and Accessories, as well as a few ‘capture the moment’ shots.
When Ian arrived before he got on with greeting too many of the Guests, we took a few pictures of him with his Groomsmen. Everyone mingled until it was time to go inside the Barn for the Ceremony. Maria was soon ready and was joined by the Bridesmaids. After a few pictures, it was time to walk around to the Barn. Rain started to fall so we hurried inside quicker than usual.
Following the Ceremony, the Guests went into the Garden Room for the Drinks Reception, whilst we took Maria and Ian for a couple of pictures at the gate. The rain had stopped and the ground was drying up. Maria and Ian then joined their Guests. A little while later we went outside and took the requested family pictures with a variety of others. We managed to take Maria and Ian for a quick walk around the grounds before it was time for the Wedding Breakfast.
The Speeches followed, during this time it rained again but worked nicely for Maria and Ian because just as the Speeches had finished a rainbow appeared! A nice picture followed by the Guests joining us for the confetti pictures. By now it was nice evening, sunny and the children and adults had the choice of staying outside or return to the Garden Room. For their entertainment a Magician was on hand, whilst we took Maria and Ian out into the lane for a couple of sunset pictures. As we returned the Evening Guests were arriving and a little while later everyone returned to the Barn for the cutting of the Wedding Cake and Maria an Ian’s First Dance. After capturing a flavour of the evening and happy with our coverage of Maria and Ian’s Wedding we said our ‘goodbyes’. A lovely day!
We had the pleasure of providing wedding photography for Laura and Alex’s wedding at the wonderful Crabbs Barn. Meeting with Laura when we arrived there was a nice feel of relaxation with the girls getting ready without rushing. Laura was having her hair finished, her Wedding Dress and accessories were out for us to photograph. As final preparations were going on Alex was out at the front of the Barn with his Groomsmen. When they were all ready we got on with taking their pictures. It was such a beautiful day and the setting for the outside Ceremony looked lovely. Alex and his Groomsmen greeted the Guests as they arrived and they all mingled outside until it was time for them to be seated for the Ceremony.
Laura was ready with time to spare, great! Laura was wearing her Grandma’s veil and knowing this was extremely special we made sure this featured !
The Ceremony & Reception
When the Registrars’ meeting was completed, Laura, her Father and the Bridesmaids exited the Barn and made their way toward the Gazebo for the Ceremony. Once the Ceremony was over the Guests followed Laura and Alex into the grounds for the Drinks Reception. Laura and Alex spent a nice time socialising with their Guests before we got on with the requested family pictures. These went smoothly and after Laura and Alex had a little social time we took them for a short walk around the Grounds.
Following their ‘together’ pictures, there was still time for Laura and Alex to mingle again before being showered in confetti. Following the Wedding Breakfast the Speeches followed. Afterwards we managed to take Laura and Alex away for a few minutes for some evening pictures in the lane. After a beautiful day a nice sunset! A little while later Laura and Alex cut their Wedding cake and had their First Dance. Guests then joined them on the dance floor. After capturing a flavour of the evening, some informal people pictures, it was time for us to leave. A wonderful day and and a lovely couple!
Essex Wedding Photographers at Crabbs Barn for Jasmine and Jake
We had the pleasure to be Essex Wedding Photographers at Crabbs Barn for Jasmine and Jake – The weather was beautiful for Jasmine and Jake’s Wedding in the Summer at Crabbs Barn. Our day started at the fabulous Air B & B Maysent House, Bocking, Braintree. Jasmine and Jake had hired out this house for a couple of days. Jasmine, the two Mums and the girls were getting ready there and it was perfect. When we arrived the preparations were going well. We chatted with Pam, Jasmine’s Mum for a few minutes to catch up as we took her Wedding photographs when she married Dan at Fennes a few years ago.
It was nice to see Michelle of Bumblebee Bridal again (we have worked with her a lot recently) working her magic on the girls’ hair. Just loved the colour scheme and the flowers in the hair! Whilst the hair and make up preparations were going on in the downstairs rooms and after capturing some images we went upstairs to take pictures of Jasmine’s dress and accessories. It was nice to have room to take these pictures. These taken, the Bridesmaids were getting dressed, Jasmine’s Mum, Pam, who was ready then helped Jasmine get dressed. After a few pictures we all went outside into the garden. A shady area provided enough room for us to take a few pictures of them all before we left to go to the wedding. Good timing!
We arrived at Crabbs Barn just as Jake did! Jake and his Best Men had a few pictures taken before they carried out their duties. Guests mingled in the gardens before Jasmine arrived so we were able to capture a few informal pictures before they made their way into the Barn for the Ceremony. Jasmine’s Mum, Pam, escorted her into the Barn when it was time for the Ceremony. Following the Ceremony everyone went outside for the Dove release.
During the Drinks Reception we got on with taking the required family pictures. There was time for Jasmine and Jake to have several breaks from various pictures to socialise with their Guests. Jasmine and Jake were covered with petals just before going inside the Barn for the BBQ.
The Speeches followed the meal and afterwards every went outside into the grounds to enjoy the evening sunshine. The evening light was superb so we went with Jasmine and Jake for a walk in the lane. Lovely pictures! When we returned the Evening Guests had arrived and they joined the audience as they were being entertained by the fabulous Magician, Nick Crown. As always some great reactions! Today also provided a great Sunset which was followed by Jasmine and Jake cutting their Wedding cake then taking to the dance floor for their First Dance. It wasn’t long after that we said our goodbyes. A beautiful day, and such a lovely couple.

Essex Wedding Photography – Tracey and Mike held their Wedding at the lovely Wedding Venue Crabbs Barn. Tracey and Mike’s daughters were getting ready with Tracey in the Bridal Room at Crabbs Barn when we arrived. Preparations were going well and the three of them were very relaxed.
Mike was with his son, who was his Best Man, so before many of the Guests arrived, we took a few pictures of them. With having lovely weather they greeted, then socialised with the Guests outside. Once the hair and make-up was finished the girls got dressed. After taking a couple of pictures of Tracey, it was then time to walk along the path to the Barn for the Ceremony. The Guests had taken their seats in the Barn and a few minutes later Tracey who was given away by her daughter Rebecca walked into the Barn. After the Ceremony a short Celebrant Service took place, starting with the lighting of the Memorial Lantern. This service was very important to Tracey and Mike and it was nice to be present to capture the moments. Afterwards everyone went outside for the Drinks Reception, with the setting providing some informal pictures.
Once Tracey and Mike had spent a little time with their Guests we got on with the requested family group pictures. Other special pictures were taken during the afternoon. Tracey and Mike’s ‘together’ pictures took place around the grounds a little later on in the sunshine. Their Guests later threw petals over Tracey and Mike before the Wedding Breakfast.
The Wedding Breakfast
Everyone was entertained by the wonderful Irie J during the meal. After the Speeches, which followed the meal, everyone relaxed in the grounds of Crabbs Barn. This allowed us to escape for a few minutes with Tracey and Mike for a short walk for a few evening pictures. After cutting their Wedding Cake they had their First Dance. Later a Sunset finished our coverage of Tracey and Mike’s wonderful Wedding Day. It was a pleasure to carry out Essex Wedding Photography for Tracey and Mike, thank you for asking us.
It was a lovely morning when we visited Tracey and Mike for their Pre-Wedding pictures. Tracey and Mike asked us if we would mind going to their home for their pictures. We were happy to do so, and after seeing their wonderful garden it was the right place to take some pictures. First of all though we chatted and talked through details of their Wedding at Crabbs Barn which is going to be taking place soon. Afterwards we went out into the garden where we were spoilt for choice as to where we could take the pictures. The backdrop to the pictures was lovely, and we achieved some nice pictures.

We arrived at Trish’s home first of all to take a few getting ready pictures and a few pictures of Trish’s accessories and details. Before we left we managed to take a few pictures when everybody was ready. Trish and Chris were having a Church Service at St Margarets Church, Downham. We love this Church and where it is situated, at the top of a hill. When we arrived we met Chris with his Groomsmen and it was nice again to work with David of Humble Productions. We had time to take a few pictures of the men by the gate before the Wedding Guests made their way into the Church. The Bridesmaids arrived soon after and Trish arrived a little later on with her Mum, who was giving her away. After a couple of pictures they made their way into Church. After the service as Trish and Chris came out of the Church they had a little time to socialise with their Guests.

It was then time to make our way to Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon, for the Reception. When we arrived at Crabbs Barn, the early evening light was wonderful, so we decided to take Trish and Chris for their pictures as soon as they arrived. What a good plan that proved to be! They were first to arrive after us so we quickly whisked them off. After a few pictures around Crabbs Barn we went for a quick walk in the lane and then into the field. Some nice pictures.This didn’t take very long and as we returned to Crabbs Barn, Guests were still arriving. Trish and Chris enjoyed the Drinks Reception with their Guests.

Eventually, James completed his Speech! Whilst the barn was rearranged for the evening reception, the Guests went outside where ‘Del Boy’ was continuing his entertainment. Some brilliant pictures, despite us struggling to hold the cameras still due to us laughing so much! We have seen him many times before, he is so good! Evening Guests joined in the fun as well.

Crabbs Barn Wedding Photographer for Carla and Jay
The sun was shining brightly for Carla and Jay’s Wedding Day at Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon. Carla was getting ready in the Bridal Suite and Jay was getting ready in the Farmhouse when we arrived. David and I spent time with each of them capturing the moments of getting ready. Jay was the first dressed so we got on with taking some pictures of her with her Mum and Bridesmaids. Carla was not far behind in the ‘ready’ situation which was good as Carla and Jay wanted to see each other before the Ceremony. Jay had a little time to spend at the Farmhouse whilst we took a few pictures of Carla. It was then time for the girls to meet.
It worked well, a nice moment. Carla and Jay made their way to the front of Crabbs Barn and together walked into the Barn. Once the Ceremony was over, Carla and Jay came down the aisle and out of the barn singing and dancing. Their Guests went outside for the Drinks Reception whilst Jay and Carla went for a couple of pictures at the gate. They then joined their Guests who were being entertained by the Steel Band, whilst we took some informal pictures. Carla and Jay wanted some family pictures which we took later on. After the confetti pictures it was time for the BBQ which was followed by the Speeches. Whilst waiting for the evening celebrations to begin we went for a short walk with Carla and Jay around Crabbs Barn and in the lane. To our surprise, the hay bales were still in the field so we made use of those for a couple of pictures. All pleased with these pictures, and the sunset was brilliant, we returned to the Barn. It was soon time for Carla and Jay to take to the dance floor for their First Dance. Happy with our pictures capturing Carla and Jay’s Wedding Day we said our goodbyes.
