Caroline and William’s wedding at St Mary’s Church, North Mymms & Brocket Hall, Herts

Caroline and William were married at St Mary’s Church in North Mymms on the 24th July 2014 followed by the wedding reception at Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire.

Broket Hall is a magnificent wedding venue set in 543 acres of stunning parkland, it was also home to two prime ministers and has played host to many royal members! Just a few of the gorgeous points of interest here are the gorgeous ballroom, championship golf course, waterside restaurant, glamorous dining halls and fabulous lake with a stunning bridge that makes a real impact in the photographs.  Have a look at the venues website www.brocket-hall.co.uk

On the day Caroline had 2 bridesmaids her own sister Jenny and Williams sister Liz, the ladies wore Teal (the colour theme of the day) knee length dresses teamed with an ivory ash belt and shoes, carrying pretty posies of cream flowers to match Caroline’s.

William was accompanied by Best Man Gavin and two Usher Errin and Matthew, the men looked very smart in their 3 piece dark grey morning suits teamed with Ivory waistcoats and Teal cravats to following through with the colour theme.

After the marriage ceremony at St Mary’s church in North Mymms we headed off to meet our couple back at Brocket Hall to capture the traditional couple shots, we were spoiled for choice for areas around the grounds to use! but we couldn’t resist capturing our couple sitting on the grassland next to the beautiful lake and amazing bridge offset behind.. just beautiful.

We also walked our bride and groom around the lake and captured the magnificent building in the background, this also worked well with our couple on the bridge and the mansion in the background, real eye catching scenery to create some amazing photographs on their special day.  The golf course ground, beautiful corn field, woodland areas and sweeping drives also made our day and also made for some amazing photographs!

Back inside the sprawling mansion we again found so many opportunities for fantastic photography, including the sweeping staircases, balconies, ballrooms, dining halls and so much more we were in our element!

Back at the reception area we captured some lovely reportage photography of the guests laughing and joking and chatting to the newly weds and not forgetting the piano player which played during wedding breakfast.

We stayed to cover the evening with Caroline and William which was great, as it was a lovely summers evening we captured the guests outside playing croquet and enjoying each others company, later we caught sundown with Caroline and William by the lake which looked so romantic!

Before our day ended we took captured some lovely memories of the newly weds having their first dance and of the other guests dancing with their partners and each other great memories to look back on!

Here are some images from the day..

Katie and Matthews’s wedding at St Josephs Church,Upminster and Channels Golf Club, Lt Waltham

Katie and Matthew were married on the 18th July 014 in their local church St Joseph’s in Upminster followed by the reception at the popular venue Channels in Little Waltham.

On the big day Katie got ready at her parents house with the bridesmaids, this was a lovely sunny day and we made use of taking the ladies outside into the garden before we left for church to capture some fun shots of Katie with the bridesmaids and parents.

Katie wore a beautifully elegant style wedding gown with lots of detail on the outer layer with a lovely train.

Katie and Matthew were accompanies by many of their close friends and family on the day these included 6 bridesmaids and 7 Ushers and Matt’s  Best Man.

The bridesmaids wore summery knee length dresses in a deep Purple and held posies with Purple and white flowers which contrasted perfectly.  The men, all 10 of them including dad wore matching grey suits with Ivory waistcoats and cravats, the photographs of the men all standing together outside the church steps looked fab!

After the ceremony we made our way back to Channels, S E Photography are the recommended photographers for Channels so we know this venue extremely well,we have plenty of spots at this venue to take some amazing photographs, as we did for Katie and Matthew this day.

Some of the areas we love to make use of with our couples are the beautiful lake full of lily pads, one of our favourite shots is to have our couple one side of the lake and we shoot from the other side capturing you, but also your reflections in the water its so effective and we done exactly this with Katie and Matthew.  We also love the long sweeping drive heading in towards the venue and we took some lovely shots of our couple walking hand in hand away from us.

The barn is another favorite spot of ours and we took Katie and Matthew here to have some fun shots taken with our wedding props, the barn looks amazing in the background.

We also stayed to capture some special moments in the evening on this day, its really lovely to catch some lovely evening sun down shots of our couples which we did here for Katie and Matt, and we were also lucky enough to catch some great photographs in the dark with the guests and newly weds having fun with sparklers!

Here are some images from the day..

Straight after the wedding ceremony we took our lovely couple around the grounds, we know Mulberry House extremely well and have lots of lovely hidden spots that we love to take out couples to capture some amazing shots.  On this lovely summers day we made use of the vintage brick wishing well, wooded areas around the side of the manor house, the gorgeous wooden lovers bench, wooden field gates, the beautiful arched bridge over the lake and greenery areas we have so many places to choose from and all make for amazing shots with our couples.

The greenery area to the side of the house is a great area for us to capture the bride throwing her bouquet, great reportage photographs were also taking here of the ladies laughing, joking and jumping in the air to catch the bouquet!

On this lovely summers day we also made use of the adjoining wispy field and captured some beautiful romantic shots of our couple taking a stroll, we even had Charlotte giving us a lovely twirl in her dress and how amazing the photographs of this look!
