Fennes Wedding Photography for Emily & Robert

Fennes Wedding Photography for Emily & Robert

It was lovely to return for Fennes Wedding Photography for Emily and Robert. When we arrived at Fennes there was lots going with the girls at various stages of getting ready.  Leaving them to it for a few minutes, we went to the Fennes Suite to take the pictures of Emily’s Wedding Dress and accessories. Returning to the girls I stayed with them whilst David went off to meet with Rob and his Groomsmen. They were ready for their pictures and Rob wanted to go to the barn for some of the guys pictures.  That was fine!  As time was on our side, the men had some pictures taken in front of Fennes as well before they greeted the Guests. Meanwhile back upstairs in Fennes Bridal Room, final preparations were coming on well. It wasn’t long before all the girls ready so we got on with a few photos.

Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes Emily’s Father was waiting for her at the bottom of the stairs so after greeting him they went for a short walk before the Ceremony. A special moment for them! The Guests were seated in the Pavilion for the Ceremony so when Emily and her Father returned,  the Bridesmaids and Flowergirls led the way into the Pavilion.  After the Ceremony Emily and Rob had a few minutes to themselves in the Gold Room letting the Guests go outside to get ready for the bubble pictures. Some great reactions! Fennes Recommended Wedding PhotographerDuring the afternoon the requested family pictures were taken as well as the fun Bridal party pictures and Emily and Rob’s ‘together’pictures. Fennes Wedding PhotographyThey still had social time! Emily and Rob then greeted their Guests in the Receiving Line before the Wedding Breakfast. The Speeches followed including a surprise video appearance from Emily’s sister and husband, who were unable to attend the Wedding. It was such a lovely evening, the grounds were bathed in sunshine so everyone made the most of it. Evening pictures beckoned for Emily and Rob and the Bridal party on the bridge, as well as informal pictures of Guests. Good fun was had! Emily and Rob took to the dance floor a little later on for their First Dance. With sunset happening we took the short walk to where we could see the sky, even the short walk generated some nice relaxed pictures of Emily and Rob.Fennes Wedding Photographer Time for us to leave. A wonderful Wedding and a lovely day of Fennes wedding photography! As always thanks to the staff at Fennes for their help and looking after us.

Wedding Photos Fennes for Nikki & Rob

Wedding Photos Fennes for Nikki & Rob

We were very pleased to be asked to photograph Nikki and Rob’s Wedding Day at Fennes. Nikki works in the Accounts Office at The Fennes Estate.

Our day started at Fennes, arriving whilst the girls preparations were underway and the excitement was increasing.

Fennes Wedding Photographer Nikki and Rob chose to be married at St Mary’s Church, Bocking, so we had to be very aware of the time so we would not miss the Guys’ arrival shots at church. With pictures of the details and accessories in the bag, and everybody was ready, we got on with taking the posed pictures. After Nikki’s Dad saw her for the first time in her Wedding dress and escorted her downstairs, we went into the Gold Room.One of the nice things with Nikki and Rob choosing a Church wedding, was that the downstairs of Fennes was available for Nikki’s pictures before she went. Once we had taken the pictures we left to go to the Church.  The pathway up to the St Mary’s allows for some nice Guest arrival pictures whilst Rob, his Best Man and Ushers were having a few pictures taken, before he disappeared into the Church.

Recommended Fennes Wedding Photographer Nikki arrived, took her Father’s arm and walked up the path to the Church. After the Church service we organised the few requested family pictures.  The Guests then lined the path at the gate for Nikki and Rob to walk through, throwing confetti as they did so.  Nikki, Rob and ourselves were first back to Fennes so after a couple of pictures with the car driven by Adrian of Vintage Dreams, we walked over to the Bridge, a must for Weddings at Fennes! With Lottie, front of house co-ordinator and the staff at Fennes as always taking good care of the Guests as they arrived, we carried on with a short tour of the grounds for Nikki and Rob’s pictures. Wedding Photos Fennes They then joined the Drinks Reception and talked to their Guests. Bridal fun pictures happened later, shortly before the Wedding Breakfast. A singer entertained everybody during the Wedding Breakfast before the Speeches. Whilst waiting for the Evening Reception to start Guests enjoyed walking around in the grounds of Fennes.  A short time later the evening Guests started to arrive for the Reception in the Marquee.  The Pavilion looked wonderful as Nikki and Rob greeted all their Guests as they made their way in.  After the cutting of the Wedding Cake they took to the dance floor for their First Dance together as man and wife. Recommended Essex Wedding Photographer Fennes Making sure we were happy with our images of capturing Nikki and Rob’s special Day, catching up with people we knew, we said our ‘goodbyes’. Congratulations Nikki and Rob on a lovely day!

 
 
 

Fennes Wedding Photography – Leah & Christopher

Fennes Wedding Photography

It was a pleasure to photograph Leah and Christopher’s Wedding which was held at Fennes in the late summer.  The Fennes Estate looked a picture as always and whilst waiting for Leah to arrive we photographed the setting. Christopher arrived and made his way to Fennes Cottage where he got dressed.  Leah arrived shortly afterwards with her hair done and only the final touch up of her make-up needed. We worked with David of Rideout Productions who is one of the best wedding film makers anywhere. After taking pictures of Leah’s Dress and Accessories, Leah and the Bridesmaids put on their dresses.

With the Bridesmaids leading the way, Leah taking her Father’s arm followed them into the Pavilion.  After the Ceremony, everybody went outside for a few requested family pictures before socialising during the Drinks Reception, with the String Quartet providing the music.  Leah and Chris wanted lots of casual pictures taken and they were not disappointed, we were spoilt for choice! For Leah and Chris’ pictures we went over to the bridge.  The ground was soft so Leah made the right choice to change into her ‘Hunter’ wellies and not spoil her wonderful shoes! Fennes Wedding PhotographerAfter the confetti pictures the Wedding Breakfast was in the Pavilion and was followed by the Speeches.  We great great moments captured in the speeches!  There was time before the cake cutting and First Dance for a little time with Leah and Chris for a few pictures in the Gold and Red rooms.  A beautiful day provided a nice sunset as well.

Fennes Wedding Photos – Jaimey & Mehmet

Fennes Wedding Photos for Jaimey & Mehmet

The sun was shining for Jaimey and Mehmet’s Wedding day at Fennes.  We arrived at Fennes just before Mehmet arrived with his Groomsmen.  They made their way into the Library to finish getting ready.  Jaimey was upstairs having her hair done and the room was a hive of activity! Working around their preparations I got on with photographing the details and accessories, whilst David was downstairs with the men capturing their preparations.  David couldn’t leave the men as a surprise was in store for Mehmet!  Unbeknown to Mehmet, Jaimey had arranged for a Ferrari to arrive at Fennes and take him to St Mary’s Church, Bocking for the Church service. It wasn’t long before the Ferrari arrived and Memhmet’s Best Man persuaded Mehmet to go to the front of the house .  How surprised Mehmet was!  Grinning from ear to ear, Mehmet just stared at the Ferrarri before climbing in to have some pictures taken. Recommended Wedding Photographer Fennes Jaimey was delighted her surprise had worked and enjoyed the feedback from the Bridesmaids and a few Guests who had watched the drama unfolding.  Mehmet  was then chauffeured to St Mary’s Church.  Time was racing by and with so many people getting ready we decided that I would go to the Church whilst David stayed behind capturing what was happening.  After meeting the men at the Church and capturing some pictures of the Guests as well as Mehmet, it wasn’t long before Jaimey arrived.  We captured the moments as they happened as they all made their way into the Church. Fennes Weddng Photography After the Church service we took a few family pictures outside the Church before the Guests made their way down to the gate for the confetti pictures. Before leaving the Church we took a couple pictures of Jaimey and Mehmet with the car before they left for the Reception.  As we were back at Fennes with Jaimey and Mehmet well before their Guests, we went to take some pictures on the bridge and around the grounds. Returning to the House we caught up on a few bridal shots of Jaimey that we didn’t get earlier in the Gold Room.Wedding Photographer Fennes Recommended As the Guests arrived they enjoyed the Drinks Reception in the gardens. The Wedding  Breakfast was held in the Pavilion and was followed by the Speeches. With the main Speeches delivered  a few of Jaimey and Mehmet’s relatives and friends said a few words.  It was a beautiful evening and afterwards Guests went outside and socialised.  Using the superb grounds we took some relaxed bridal party pictures before it was time for the First Dance.  Finishing Jaimey and Mehmet’s coverage of their special day a nice sunset picture. Fennes Wedding Photos Thank you so much Sue (Fennes Front of house) for your help, much appreciated as always!

Fennes Open Day – Sunday 22 November 11am-3pm

Come and visit us at Fennes Open Day, tomorrow for a friendly chat about your Wedding and to view our Wedding photography.fennes open day

One of the interesting comments we have received recently, is how ‘other photographers’ were supposedly offering better price and products …… this was without the potential client even coming to see what our products are like or asking about what is included! While we can not be considered to offer the cheapest packages around, we do try to offer realistic packages that don’t include too many nasty cost surprises after the wedding! Do please come and chat, we are not ‘pressure sales’ people!
