Parklands Quendon Hall Wedding Photography for Sarah & Gordon

Parklands Quendon Hall Wedding Photography for Sarah & Gordon

This was a Parklands Quendon Hall Wedding for Sarah and  and Gordon earlier this year. We arrived at Parklands in the morning and went to see Sarah who was getting ready within the House in the Changing Rooms. Preparations were going well but it was busy with several Bridesmaids having hair and make up done. Gordon and his Groomsmen were getting ready at Parklands as well.

Once Sarah’s hair and make-up were finished Sarah got dressed.  As always the last hour goes so quickly but we managed to take a few pictures before Sarah was needed bythe Registrars.

The Outdoors Ceremony

The day was so hot the Guests were seated for the outdoor Ceremony very close to the time of the Ceremony, just before Sarah came downstairs. The Bridesmaids led the way outside, then Sarah took her Father’s arm and they followed.

Sarah and Gordon spent a little time with their Guests before we took some family pictures and caught up with the pictures of Sarah and the girls. A little later on we took Sarah and Gordon to the lake but this was only for a short while as the sun was so strong and they were both too hot! Guests later threw confetti over Sarah and Gordon before they all sat down for the Wedding Breakfast. Wedding Photographer Parklands

The Wedding Breakfast and Evening

The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and after the meal the Speeches took place. When these were finished everyone mingled in the Pavilion as well as outside. During this time we took some evening pictures of the happy couple around the grounds as it was now a little cooler. Sarah and Gordon cut their Wedding Cake prior to the First Dance and afterwards it was time for the sunset. A nice one!

Parklands Wedding Photography for Siri & Shaf

Parklands Wedding Photography – Siri and Shaf chose the poplar and superb Wedding Venue, Parklands, Quendon Hall, for their Wedding.  Our day started at Parklands, where all the preparations were underway. Siri with her family and Bridesmaids were upstairs in the  Bridal changing room whilst Shaf, his family and Groomsmen were also getting ready in another room and once they were ready, we took them outside for a few pictures. As Siri had the final touches applied for her make-up, a few pictures were taken of her before all the girls transferred to Room 1 for a few more pictures.  Loving this room, with so much more space, we were able to take some nice pictures formally as well as capturing some nice informal images.

With it being a nice day Guests made their way outside enjoying the grounds whilst socialising. After giving Siri and Shaf some time with their Guests it was time to get on with the requested family pictures.  We were extremely grateful for the help from Shaf’s brother,who was the Best Man, and Shaf’s Usher, as well as the co-operation of all Siri and Shaf’s Guests with the group pictures.  All of us working together, brilliant!  After the fun Bridal Party pictures, it was time for Siri and Shaf’s together pictures around the grounds of Parklands, finishing by the field with the oil seed rape.

Siri tossed her bouquet when we returned and shortly afterwards, Siri and Shaf  changed into traditional Asian dress and we took a few pictures of them together.  Once their Wedding Guests had made their way back into the Pavilion they made their entrance.  Before they took their places for the meal they took part in a few traditional Sri Lankan games followed by the cutting of their Wedding cake.  We photographed the Speeches later and traditional ceremony games and captured some great images. Before the evening celebrations really began, we managed to take Siri and Shaf for a couple of evening pictures before returning for the dancing.  The Marquee looked fabulous as the couple took to dance floor for the First Dance, quickly joined by everybody else.  A spectacular scene! 140509-Siri-Shaf-w6  Essex Wedding Photos
