Wedding Photography for Lisa & Nicholas – Holy Family Roman Catholic Church & Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon

We arrived at Lisa and Nicholas’ home to a hive of activity, with Bridesmaids, Flowergirls and Pageboys getting dressed for the big day!  All was going well, although as always the last hour of preparations goes twice as quick. Whilst Lisa was getting ready we were able to take some pictures of all the attendants outside, followed by a few pictures of Lisa.   Holy Family Roman Catholic Church in Witham was Lisa and Nick’s choice of where to be married and what a lovely Church it is!  Nick and his Groomsmen were at the Church greeting Guests, so after a couple of pictures, Lisa arrived ready for the service. wedding-photographer-essex-holy family church-witham After the service with clouds threatening we took a few requested family photographs outside the Church and left to go to Crabbs Barn for the Reception.  Despite a rain shower we were able to go outside at Crabbs Barn for their pictures.  Brandon and Isabelle, Lisa and Nick’s children, enjoyed being outside and provided us with some relaxed shots, as did the Wedding Guests.  After covering the Speeches after the Wedding Breakfast we were able to take Lisa and Nick for some bridal portraits, finishing with some evening photographs. wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barn wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barn


Wedding Photography for Claire & Matthew – St. Mary The Virgin Church, Peldon & Crabbs Barn, Kelvedon

Our day started with David going to see Matt and his Groomsmen whilst I stayed with Claire and her Bridesmaids who were enjoying the final bridal preparations with a glass of champagne. Claire and Matt chose to be married at St. Mary The Virgin, Peldon, so Claire was able to walk to the Church with her Dad and Bridesmaids, which made for some nice pictures. wedding-photographer-essex-peldon church Following the Church service and a few family groups outside the Church and confetti pictures, we all left to go to Crabbs Barn,Kelvedon, Guests arrived and enjoyed a Drinks Reception in the grounds of Crabbs Barn. wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barnAllowing time for Claire and Matt to talk to their Guests when they arrived, we took some informal pictures.  After a while we took Claire and Matt for a stroll around the lovely grounds of Crabbs Barn, capturing some lovely images. wedding-photographer-essex-crabbs barnThe Wedding Breakfast and Speeches followed, and as the soft evening light was brilliant for photographing in, and not to be missed, for a very short time, Claire, Matt, and ourselves used different areas of Crabbs Barn, including the Bridal Suite, for some relaxed pictures, wonderful!  A sunset picture for Claire and Matt added the final touch to our pictures!
