It was a lovely day for Becky and Marcus’ Church Wedding at Lavenham and their Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography and reception. Becky, her Parents and Bridesmaids were getting ready at The Swan, Lavenham. When we arrived there earlier in the day preparations were well underway. We stayed a while in the room where the preparations were going capturing a few of these pictures before going off to photograph Becky’s Wedding Dress and accessories in another room. Essex Wedding PhotographerReturning to the girls it was time for the Bridesmaids to go and get changed and Becky followed soon after. With lots going on and time evaporating extremely quickly everyone was very focused!

David decided to go to the Church during changing whilst I remained with the girls. So good to have the Church just up the road! Once Becky and the Bridesmaids were ready, I just took a couple of pictures of them before Becky’s Father came upstairs to see his daughter. It is one of those moments I love and I was happy to be there. My turn now to get my skates on and leave them and make my way to the St Peter & St Paul Church.Essex Wedding PhotographerDavid had taken the pictures of Marcus and his Groomsmen and they were inside the Church awaiting the arrival of Becky. The Bridesmaids and Becky arrived and entered the Church. After the service Becky and Marcus came out of the Church and went off to the side to allow their Guests to exit. The guests lined the path and showered the happy couple!Essex Wedding Photographer At the Church we took the few requested family pictures before leaving to go to Smeetham Barn.

Drinks awaited everyone at Smeetham. After Becky and Marcus had some social time we went over to the House and grounds for a few pictures of them. Enjoying the weather everyone socialised outside and we got on with taking some informal pictures. Soon it was time for the Wedding Breakfast followed by the Speeches. Some great reactions captured!

Clare Priory & Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography

Jemma and Nick were married earlier this year at Clare Priory with their Reception at Smeetham Hall Barn, Bulmer. Our day started at The Mill Hotel, Sudbury which is where Jemma and Nick were getting ready. Jemma was being assisted by her Bridesmaids and preparations were going well. Meanwhile Nick was being helped by his Groomsmen in a different part of the Hotel.

Both sets of preparations pictures were very relaxed and good fun. Once Nick was ready we took a few pictures of him with his Groomsmen outside The Mill Hotel before he set off for Clare Priory. The girls were soon ready for their pictures and we took those in the room.Wedding Photographer Suffolk It was then time for David and I to set off for Clare Priory. The Church of Clare Priory is lovely and located in a picturesque setting. When we arrived Nick and his Groomsmen were greeting some Guests but we had time to take a few pictures of them before they carried on with their duties. A little while later Jemma arrived with her Father and the Bridesmaids. When everyone was seated in the Church, Jemma made her entrance. The lighting of a Candle started the service.Clare Priory & Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding PhotographyAfter the service the Wedding Guests mingled whilst we spent a few minutes in the gardens outside the Church taking a few pictures of Jemma and Nick.

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography for Amy and Tom

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography for Amy and Tom

Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photography for Amy and Tom was on a lovely late spring day! We arrived at Amy’s Parents home first of all which was where Amy was getting ready with her Bridesmaids. The sun was shining and the forecast was it would be getting hotter as the day went on. Amy was in the final stages of her hair and make-up being finished so we got on with taking the pictures of Amy’s Wedding Dress and accessories. Ellie and Katie, the smaller Bridesmaids arrived a little later on. Once hair and make up ‘getting ready’ pictures were completed the girls watched as Amy opened her present from Tom. Time for the girls to get dressed and then Amy’s Mother, Lindsey, and Amy’s sister Robyn assisted Amy to get dressed. Amy looked wonderful! The garden looked fabulous and when Amy was ready we all went outside.Essex Wedding Photographer Although it was only late morning it was now very hot and sunny everywhere but we took some pictures outside. Finishing these we left to go to St Bartholomew’s Church, Wickham Bishops. Tom was there with his Grooomsmen together with Norah, their Flowergirl and Daniel, their Pageboy. There was lots to do at the Church as always but everything was running smoothly.  The Guests made their way into the Church for the service and it wasn’t long after that Amy arrived. During the service Daniel stepped up at the right time to hand over the Wedding Rings, a nice moment. After the service Amy and Tom came out of the Church, had a brief few minutes with their Guests before we got on with taking a few pictures.  These were kept to a minimum as space was limited, there were many Guests and there would be time to take some more at the Wedding Reception at Smeetham Hall Barn. So, as the Guests threw confetti over Amy and Tom as they left the Church, Ian of Nixons Cars was waiting to take them on their journey.St Bartholomews Church Wedding Photographer Essex Smeetham Hall Barn looked absolutely wonderful as we arrived, basked in sunshine! The car dropped  off Amy and Tom at the House right where the Drinks Reception was being held. After a couple of car pictures Amy and Tom mingled with their Guests whilst we captured informal pictures.Smeetham Hall Barn Wedding Photographer Amy and Tom’s requested family pictures were taken in the shade of the trees which was appreciated by all concerned! Thank you Robyn for all your help! After Amy and Tom’s ‘together’pictures and before the Wedding Breakfast we took an ‘everybody’ picture. Coverage of The Speeches followed the Wedding Breakfast.  A  superb Speech was delivered by Matt,Tom’s Brother and Best Man which produced many many laughs!Suffolk Wedding PhotographerWhilst the guests were enjoying the evening sunshine, we whisked Amy and Tom away for a short while to get a few more pictures. Once the Evening Guests had arrived Tom and Amy took to the dance floor for their First Dance. Amy, Tom and ourselves were delighted later on with the sunset pictures to finish off. Happy with our results of a splendid day we then said our ‘goodbyes”. Recommended Wedding Photographer Smeetham BarnThank you to Sue Whittle who was a Guest at this Wedding who recommended us to Amy and Tom.
