Orsett Hall Wedding Photography for Collette & Tim
It has been some time since we provided Wedding Photography at Orsett Hall, so it was nice to be back to photograph the Wedding of Collette and Tim. Our day started at Collette’s Parents’ house where the girls were getting ready. On arrival the girls were chilled, chatting, drinking champagne, whilst getting ready. It was nice to see again Carla Brooks who was doing the make-up on the day. David was at Orsett Hall where the men were getting ready and to capture their final preparations. After taking pictures of Collette’s dress and accessories in between taking pictures of what was happening, it was soon time for everybody to get dressed.Collette looked lovely in her Wedding Dress and the girls looked a picture in their dresses.The weather was fine, dry and bright so into the garden we went for a few pictures. We then made our way to St Mary’s Church, North Stifford, which was where Collette and Tim chose to be married. We managed to get a few pictures of Tim, his Best Man and Ushers in between them carrying out their various duties before the service. Collette arrived shortly afterwards and with everybody seated in the Church with the Bridesmaids leading the way, followed by Collette and her Father, they went down the church path into the Church. After the exchange of vows and wedding rings, it was time for the signing of the Register. Once Collette and Tim signed the Register of their marriage, the Vicar produced the Register which Collette’s parents, Ann and Phil signed when they got married in the Church many years ago. A lovely moment! After the service everyone went outside into the Churchyard for some requested group pictures. Collette and Tim were then showered with confetti before they left the Church to go to the Reception. Whilst the Guests were still arriving at Orsett Hall we took Collette and Tim off for a few minutes around the grounds for their pictures before they socialised with their Guests during the Drinks Reception. During this time we took some informal pictures and some fun bridal pictures. Just before the Wedding Breakfast the Toastmaster showed the way of performing ‘Sabrage’ which is taking the top off the Champagne bottle with a Saber. Tim’s turn to perform this! Accomplished! With everybody seated for the Wedding Breakfast, the Speeches were delivered before the meal. Well done to Adam, the Best Man, a brilliant Speech! At the end of the Wedding Breakfast, a surprise for the Guests! The appearance of the Singing Waiters! As always they provide great entertainment. Everybody later left the room and went outside for the room to be set up for the evening celebrations. It was a beautiful evening and after Collette and Tim had time to talk to their Guests, sunset beckoned, so off we went! Returning a few minutes later it was time for their First Dance. A little while later we left them to continue their celebrations. Thank you Collette and Tim for letting us be your Wedding Photographers and be part of your special day, a truly memorable day spent with a wonderful couple!
