Having left their beautiful church wedding at All Saints in Stock, Essex, the wedding party made haste to Great Prestons, a grade II listed Queen Anne farmhouse set in the beautiful Essex countryside.

The marquee was decorated by the bride & groom, whilst food and the wedding cake were supplied by Limeberry Catering.

Whilst the reception was in full swing, and guests were being entertained with some music, I took the opportunity to take the bride and groom away for a portrait session –  something I do with all my couples – just a quick 15-20 minutes alone, uninterrupted by guests to get some beautiful portraits for their wedding album.  The metal doors of a barn in the adjoining farmyard provided the backdrop for some of these, as well as the structure providing some much needed relief from the bright sunshine we were blessed with.

 

Then it was back to join the party, assemble a few relaxed group shots we had elected to save for the reception and capture lots of candid photographs of people enjoying themselves, before the bride and groom joined everyone for their wedding breakfast.

Some entertaining speeches were followed by…

the first dance.

 

I have to confess I really enjoyed shooting Dan and Lucy’s wedding – they are a delightfully easy going and relaxed couple, with a great group of family and friends – it was an absolute pleasure to work with them on recording their wedding day.
