Maria & Sam’s Wedding at Pontlands Park Hotel

Maria & Sam were married on 28th May at Pontlands Park Hotel in Great Baddow Chelmsford Essex.

Theirs was a love story where they met many years before then parted for university to re unite years later and engage to be married.

They are a very romantic couple and this really came out in their engagement shoot with Marias stunning red summer dress.

In their final meeting we were very clear that romantic was the style they were going for and we really feel we managed to portray this across in their photos.

Lots of images with heads together, Sam sweeping her off her feet and lovingly looking into each others eyes.

The chemistry this couple has really helped with their photos and added that spark into their photos.

They chose Pontlands Park as their venue as Sam’s parents had their wedding there many years before.

Indoor ceremony that was very emotional, followed by a garden drinks reception and wedding breakfast was held in Pontlands Marquee they have for summer weddings.

In the evening pontlands is lite up so we took the couple outside for some images before we left.

The couple were over the moon with their photographs and we were so pleased to receive a lovely gift of a spa day.

Steph & Sam’s Wedding at Channels Estate

Steph & Sam Chantelle met at another wedding when they were running a photo booth, and being polite and striking up conversation they soon hit it off and Sam & Steph booked her for their wedding on 28th May.

Another very lovely couple to get along with.

Steph & Sam were so happy on the way and there was a beautiful vintage and lace feel to their wedding and a blush pink in the flowers which really went well with Sam’s grey suit.

They had an outdoor civil ceremony at Channels Estate and reception at the same location.

Sam & Steph loved to have a laugh and it really showed in their photographs.  Couples often ask us to let them full faces at each other or the camera that they do all the time to make each other laugh and below you will see their own fun shot.

Sam requested some photographs she had seen online and Chantelle was able to include her twist on them to make them unique.

Emma & Andrew’s Wedding Halstead Church & Channels

Emma & Andrew were married on 14th May at Halstead church and a reception was held at The Channels Estate.  Chantelle was their photographer and again it was a very fun weddings with a couple of great personalities.

We both got to know this couple and they are one of the nicest couples you will meet.

They have also returned to us for photographs of their children in the woods which they loved.

Pink was the colour scheme of the day with lots of details and the flower girls had gyp head dresses which were natural and vintage.

Emma had Jimmy Choo shoes which we made sure to include in photographs, even though Emma had to resort to removing them early on as fashion isnt always comfort.

Emma & Andrew have 4 children and we had to work with them in a calm way due to some special needs, and to not stress the children out.  Being Mothers we are always good at working with children of all ages.

On the day there was some emotional points between Emma & her step dad when he saw her.

Channels is a lovely venue with lakes barns and lots of areas to photograph.

Sarah & Graeme’s Wedding at Friern Manor

Sarah & Graeme’s wedding took place on 14th may at Friern Manor.  They chose the house side of the venue to host their wedding.

(This venue can hold 2 weddings a day either in the house of the coaching stables for the larger weddings, with a lake that divides the events.)

Their wedding was great fun to photograph, after getting to know both Sarah & Greame through their engagement shoot and meetings they were not a serious couple and i knew they would be fun.

In the final meeting they expressed their fun side by choosing to have space hoppers brought along for a bounce.  From this i knew they were up for anything and we tried to express their personalities in the photographs, the more silly the better.  Sarah’s smile and funny sense of humor was catching and we had a lot of laughs on the day.

Sarah chose bright yellow sunflowers which really expressed her personality of bold and happy.

In the evening we managed to get onto a field at the back of the venue for some sunset shots which we enhanced after.

Tracy & Matt’s Wedding The White Hart Great Yeldham

Tracy & Matt’s wedding was held on 1st May.  It had been a while since i had photographed at the White Hart and the first time the reception and wedding was in the barn and not the marquee they used to have.

The weather was very sunny and bright which isnt always ideal for wedding photographs but we found some shade to have even light and all was good.

The venue is simple with grassed areas and a little stream, we found a large tree for photographs, steps and used the perspective of the grassed area for photographs.

Group shots were held under a group of treas.

The wedding was very organised and relaxed. With the memorable part of the best man Jon making a cracking speech using a projector and embarrassing his brother.

Tracy Chose irregular choice turquoise shoes and its lovely to see colored wedding shoes that stand out and can be worn again. Plus irregular chose is my favorite make of shoes.
