Carrie and Daniel were married at Prested Hall in the summer (blog post to come!) and we were delighted to be part of their special day and take their Wedding Photographs. Carrie and Daniel gave us this Testimonial.
Dear David & Sandra
Thank you both so much for our gorgeous wedding photos. We had a lovely day and we couldn’t be happier with the memories you captured.
It has been so lovely to get to know you both over the last couple of years we hope to bump into you in years to come.
Thank you both for all your help & support leading up to during the wedding day.
A Prested Hall Civil Wedding was the chosen by Victoria and Philip for their marriage. Our day started with arriving at Prested Hall and going to find Vicky. Vicky was getting ready upstairs in Prested Hall with her Mum and her two best friends whilst Phil was getting ready in The Dingle with his Best Men. The guys were ready first so after a couple of pictures there, they left The Dingle and walked over to Prested Hall. Just before they greeted the Guests, Phil, his Best Man and Ushers had a few pictures taken outside. With final hair and make-up preparations finished Vicky was ready to put her Wedding Dress on. Once dressed, Vicky’s Dad came into the room to see his daughter before we got on with a few pictures. The Wedding Guests took their seats in the Garden Room whilst Vicky met with the Registrars. Taking her Dad’s arm Vicky then entered the Garden Room for the Ceremony to begin. Following the Ceremony everybody went outside as it was dry although slightly chilly. We got on with the requested pictures straight away during the Drinks Reception making sure Vicky and Phil had time with their Guests.After the confetti pictures, we went for a short walk around the grounds for Vicky and Phil’s pictures. Soon it was time for the Wedding Breakfast in the Marquee with the Speeches taking place before the meal. During this time the sun came out and we had our fingers crossed it would last! Fortunately it did! A little later after the finish of the meal, we took few pictures in the evening sunshine and found a patch of bluebells for some nice images. A while later Vicky and Phil cut their Wedding Cake before taking to the floor for their First Dance. As a surprise to their Guests, Vicky and Phil performed a choreographed First Dance which was superb. A nice Sunset picture finished our coverage of Vicky and Phil’s lovely Wedding Day.

Prested Hall, Feering was the Wedding Venue chosen by Charlotte and Lee for their Civil Ceremony and Wedding Reception. Charlotte and her Bridesmaids were getting ready upstairs in the Bridal Suite so we captured these moments as well as taking the detail and accessory pictures. Charlotte & Lee’s sons, together with Lee and his Groomsmen arrived so David went off to meet them for some pictures. Once Charlotte and her Bridesmaids were dressed and ready we took a few pictures. The Ceremony was in the Orangery, so when it was time, with the Harpist playing, Charlotee took her Father’s arm and they walked into the room.
After the Ceremony, Charlotte and Lee came out of the Orangery and went into the Lounge area, followed by their Guests. Drinks were served and after a little time we all went outside. The weather was fine, the sun was out, and the garden games were on the lawn. During this time a few family pictures were taken, some fun bridal party pictures taken outside the front of Prested Hall. After making sure Charlotte and Lee had socialised, it was time for some pictures of them together. A short walk around Prested Hal provided us with the opportunity of taking some nice pictures. Getting some pictures of the boys was a must so picking the right time was important. By this stage in the afternoon, Ryan and Oliver and just wanted to have fun, fine with us! Images achieved! The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Marquee with the Speeches following. Lee started off his Speech traditionally, then came the surprise! Playing his Guitar, singing a song, which he had written, brilliant! After the Best Man’s Speech everybody had time to wander around the grounds or go in the house before the evening entertainment. The best place today for Charlotte and Lee’s sunset picture was a quick drive away and Charlotte and Lee were more than happy to do this! The Cake cutting and First Dance happened a little while later. Now came the hardest part of the evening, keeping a low profile (disappearing!) as there was to be a ‘surprise’ firework display curtesy of her Dad, which Charlotte, Lee and the Guests did not know about! When everybody was ushered outside later in the evening, we reappeared! Charlotee said she thought we had gone without saying ‘goodbye’! Not us! Our time to go was after the brilliant display. A lovely day to be a Prested Hall Wedding Photographer!
Sue and Mark’s home was where we started our coverage of their Wedding. We took the details and accessory shots together with a few getting ready picture, before they were all dressed.
Not long after we left to go to Prested Hall, Feering. Mark was there with his son, Finley and Best Man, Ian, so before they got busy with greeting the Guests we took a few pictures of them. Sue arrived early at Prested Hall with her sons, Ben and Jack. Making the most of the time and nice weather,we took a few pictures in and outside the Dingle. When it was time they walked over to Prested Hall. After seeing the Registrars, Sue, escorted by her sons made her way into the Orangery and down the aisle for the Ceremony. Once the formalities were completed Sue and Mark walked out of the Orangery and into the Lounge area. After getting a drink, people went outside. During the afternoon we took a few requested family group pictures, confetti and informal pictures. Allowing time for Sue and Mark to speak to their Guests and enjoy the Drinks Reception, we still had time to take them off for a short walk around the grounds. After taking some relaxed and pictures of the children it was time for the Wedding Breakfast. Sue and Mark chose to have their Speeches after the main course, which we were on hand to cover. After the finish of the Wedding Breakfast, the Guests had time to wander around the grounds or just relax and catch up with each other over coffee. The Orangery had been transformed for the the evening’s entertainment. Sue and Mark’s evening Guests had arrived so after the cake cutting, they had their First Dance together. Not having a sunset to finish their day, we made sure of a few night pictures for them. A lovely day and once again it’s great to be a Prested Hall Wedding Photographer!
Prested Hall Wedding Photography – It was nice to be asked by Jonathan and Charli to photograph their Wedding at St Nicholas Church, Witham and then Prested Hall, Feering. We have known Jonathan since he was born and it was a pleasure to provide Wedding Photography for them. Prested Hall was where we started on the day of Charli and Jonathan’s Wedding. Charli, her Mother and Bridesmaids were having their hair and make-up done before moving to the Dingle. After capturing a few ‘getting ready’ shots, we then moved to the Dingle where we took a few pictures of Charli’s Wedding Dress and accessories. It was soon time for Charli to move from the Spa to the Dingle to get dressed, assisted by her Mum. With everybody ready we took a few pictures outside before leaving to go to our local Church St Nicholas, Witham, where the Wedding service was taking place. We met Jonathan and as a few guests had started to arrive we promptly took his pictures together with his Best Men and Ushers. Once the Guests had made their way into the Church, Leah the Flowergirl joined Charli and the Bridesmaids who had just arrived and we had a few extra minutes for a some nice pictures. Charli then took her Father’s arm and walked up the path and into the Church.
After the service, Charli and Jonathan led their Guests out of the Church for a few requested family pictures. Being a nice dry afternoon, we had a choice of where to do these. Everybody then threw confetti over Charli and Jonathan as they walked towards the Wedding car, making for some nice relaxed images. Arriving at Prested Hall everybody socialised during the Drinks Reception and after the car pictures so did Charli and Jonathan. With the Wedding Breakfast time not far off we decided to take Charli and Jonathan for their pictures over the bridge. On our return it was time for the Wedding Breakfast. The Marquee looked lovely and whilst Charli and Jonathan greeted their Guests we captured the reactions of their Guests as they had their ‘first look’ at the lego centrepieces on the tables. Charli was extremely proud of her Brother’s work in making them all. After the meal it was time for the Speeches,which included an ‘ode’ by Jane, the Groom’s Mum. Everybody then went outside for a big group photo before the evening entertainment. Charli, Jonathan and ourselves went for a stroll in the grounds, finding a patch of bluebells, just right for some relaxed evening pictures. On our return the Band had set up, evening Guests had arrived and Charli and Jonathan had their First Dance. Later Jonathan surprised Charli with joining the Band playing his Guitar for a couple of songs. A little while later we said goodbye, finished with a couple of nice evening pictures. Another great day of Prested Hall Wedding Photography Congratulations to Charli and Jonathan! A wonderful day!
Wow! What a really good Wedding Fair it was at Prested Hall, Kelvedon, today! A massive thank you to the staff at Prested Hall and to everyone who attended despite the rain! We thoroughly enjoyed talking to prospective Bride and Grooms, who came and spent time talking to us, and to cap a very successful Wedding Fair we finished the day with bookings and appointments to see people.

Sue and Mark’s oudoor Wedding Ceremony was changed at the very last minute due to a most inconvenient rain shower, after which the day was warm and dry. The grounds at Prested Hall made a lovely backdrop for Sue and Mark’s Wedding pictures of themselves and their families. Mark’s speech at the Wedding Breakfast was impressive as he managed to introduce everyone in the room which allowed us to capture some lovely moments. After the First Dance we took a couple of pictures of Sue and Mark beside the moat to finish our day. Video was by Martin Kershaw
