After their marriage at St Mary’s Church Buttsbury, Essex our intrepid bride and groom (they had to be intrepid on a lovely crisp October day to ride in an opentop trap)  enjoyed a horse and trap journey back to their reception venue – the stunning 16th century Ingatestone Hall. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot a beautiful styled shoot inside this lovely Essex wedding venue in the past, so knew what to expect, how to handle the often tricky lighting (those gorgeous oak panels just suck up light) and the best places to shoot. Decked out in style by the bride and groom – who extended their lavender theme with a vintage twist, the hall and dining room looked stunning  – massive attention to detail in this wedding made sure the important things were taken care of.  Once all the wedding guests had arrived, drinks, dinner, dancing and more smiles were the order of the day for the reception.  Music courtesy of the The Milkshakers. Second shooting courtesy of the ever trusty Konrad (konfraldotcom).

When we met to discuss their wedding plans, Andy and Emma let slip their love of lavender. Thus a plan was hatched between the three of us. Fast forward nearly a year and we found ourselves meeting one very sunny afternoon at Hitchin Lavender Farm for their pre-wedding photography stint.  When I photographed their Ingatestone Hall wedding a few weeks ago, I was delighted to see the product of our labours (an album) being shown off and enjoyed the guests.  We thought it would be nice to share with the rest of the world.

Essex Wedding Photography: Dan & Lucy’s wedding Part 2: Great Prestons Reception

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.

Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer: Ludovic & Zoe Engagement shoot (Brookmans Park)

I’ve known Ludovic for a number of years – we used to share an office when I worked with him, so I was delighted when he asked if I would like to be his and Zoe’s wedding photographer.  They recently took some time-out of their busy schedules of working and organising their very special wedding […]

 

I’ve known Ludovic for a number of years – we used to share an office when I worked with him, so I was delighted when he asked if I would like to be his and Zoe’s wedding photographer.  They recently took some time-out of their busy schedules of working and organising their very special wedding in Wales to meet me one May evening after work to shoot some pre-wedding portraits.  Gobions Wood, near Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire was our destination for a nice evening stroll and a chance to capture some portraits before they get married in a few weeks.

We even managed to find a few remaining bluebells (Gobions is well known for its bluebells and they came early this year). Time for a sit down and rest!

Then it was off to a local hostelry for a chat about their wedding day plans.  Lets just say I’m really excited by this one…
