Essex Wedding Photography: Dan and Lucy’s Stock wedding Part 1

You may remember Dan and Lucy from their engagement photographs at Hylands House, Chelmsford earlier this year. I have been itching to post the full set of images from Lucy and Dan’s wedding at All Saints church, Stock, Essex and party at Great Prestons for several weeks. However, an extended honeymoon for this lovely couple delayed me doing so – after-all the bride and groom have the privilege of seeing the images first.   So we go back in time slightly to early June. A bright summers day saw me capturing the bridal preparations, wedding dress and a gorgeous pair of Kurt Geiger shoes.

This was followed by a short drive through the lanes of Essex to Stock and the lovely All Saints Church to meet our groom and the rest of the wedding party awaiting the arrival of the bride.

The cool interior of the church provided some relief from the surprisingly hot sun and the light filtering through the windows was perfect for capturing some beautiful black and white photographs of the wedding ceremony.
