Neely & James’s Wedding at Newland Hall

Neely & James were married on 7th August at Newland Hall.

The ceremony itself was blessed to be outside on the back patio of their marquee.

The bride had 2 young children who were page boy and flower girl.  Who we managed to get some fun cheeky photographs with the 4 of them.

Neely had her sister as bridesmaid and I photographed her wedding several years ago so it once again was nice to do sibling weddings.

The wedding was of a vintage theme and they had a stunning vintage ladder dressed with flowers letters etc.

Newland Hall has a fishing lake we used for photographs and lovely green space and gates.

We found an old barn door for photographs in the evening to add texture and character.  In the evening we went into a paddock where wildflowers were growing.

Sometimes at weddings, it’s worth walking round regular to see the different light and find new places at different times of year and different weather brings new opportunities for photographs.

Rebekah & Wayne’s Wedding at Forresters Park

Rebekah & Wayne were married on 6th August at Stanway Evangelical Church and a reception was held at Forresters Park.

I was recommended for this wedding by a wedding coordinator called Zoe at Channels as the bride was a friend of hers, so that was nice that she recommended myself.

The church was of modern build which sometimes proves difficult for photograph opportunities but we used the brickwork as a modern contrast.

Rebekah’s parents had arranged a surprise horse and carriage ride which was lovely but did delay the day and the couple arrived very late to reception and we had to be super quick to get some group shots in, as the couple chose daytime only coverage so no options for evening catch ups.

There was lots of reportage taken of the guests while waiting for the arrival of the bride and groom.

Sarah & Paul’s Wedding Coggeshall church & Stisted

Sarah & Paul’s wedding was held on 5th August at Coggeshall church and a reception was held at parents friends home at an old Mill in Stisted in a marquee.

This wedding we have on display in an album as its lovely when people put their own wedding together.

This was a lovely vintage wedding with bunting up around the marquee outside, hay bails with white covers were used outside the marquee for seating.

Their usher was a photographer and helped them chose me for their photographer which was a lovely compliment.

The couple were very good with the camera and their photographs resulted in a very natural relaxed style. Lots of photographs were organised to be creative so I placed them on a wall for example then I moved to shot them talking to each other through a tree.

I was following the wedding car from the church to reception when the couple stopped at an old phone box as they really wanted a photograph of it which was bold and colourful and showed age and character.

The venue for the marquee was stunning with flowing river bridge walls and lots of open space which made it unique.

We were blessed to have a field next to the marquee for photographs in the evening.

Josh & Jo’s Wedding at Channels Estate

Josh & Jo were married on 25th July at St Mary’s church in Broomfield Chelmsford and reception was held at The Channels Estate Chelmsford.

Their wedding was one of tradition with the lovely old church.

Bridesmaids were in Navy with Pink and cream flowers.

Channels were full of colour on this day we had purple lavender at the lodge which we used and also the courtyard had hot pink flowers which were bright and stunning so we also incorporated those in the photographs.

They were lucky to also have a sunset with a beautiful pink sky.

Charlotte & Rob’s Wedding at Friern Manor

Charlotte & Rob’s wedding was held on 16th July at The Coaching Stables at Friern Manor in Dunton Essex, and will be one I never forget… why because the bride got ready at home to travel to the venue to put her dress on, however, there was a major accident on the A127 near the venue the bride arrived on time but with no dress as her dress with with her mum and stepdad behind the accident on the 127.

Her dress arrived just minutes before the bride was due to see the registrars, it arrived I grabbed it and with my help we got her dress on in super time as her mum and bridesmaids also all had to get dressed as the dresses were together, we do help dress brides but this was the quickest we ever had to dress a bride.

Which meant not lots of photos are taken before the ceremony of the bride and maids due to no dresses. But we managed to get some of them in dressing gowns waiting with champagne.

Their flower girl was their little cutie pie of daughter Hallie who I had the pleasure of looking after while the couple had their meal I walked her round in her pram and got her asleep and sat with her so they could eat.  We try to do what we can to help out at weddings to make sure the couple are stress-free and enjoy their day.

Luckily we managed to do a catch up after the ceremony and their day ran smoothly after that.

The couple were young and fun we find this when people have young children that they are wanting fun at their wedding too.

We used the Hollywood clapperboard and chalkboards, their photographs also suited the rainbow effects we can add to images.

In the evening we went out back into the fields to see the sunset in a cornfield.
