Some beautiful photographs from the wedding of Helen & Lee at St Mary’s Church Bocking near Braintree Essex on Remembrance Sunday 11.11.2011.

As I said a few posts back I am currently catching up with my blog and posting a selection of weddings / events that took place some months ago.

This is one of those weddings that are definitely worth a mention, the wedding of Helen and Lee back on the 11th November last year, the 11.11.11. Which of course also happened to be Remembrance Sunday. What was quite challenging for me was that the wedding ceremony was planned for 4.30 in the afternoon, which meant that it was practically dark and in fact there was hardly any day light left at all.

I started the afternoon by Photographing Helen getting ready at her God parents house in nearby Braintree. I took some nice photographs of her reflection in the mirror, some shots of her flowers and dress and also photographs of her incredible shinny red shoes – I have never seen wedding shoes like them before – they were amazing (though I’m not sure they were too comfortable!)

They got married at St Mary’s Church in Bocking, which is a beautiful old church and it’s here that I met up with Lee, his best man and ushers to take some fun shots and wedding portraits. The guys looked impeccable wearing their smart wedding suits with matching red cravats and hankies and also their red Remembrance Day Poppies.

Helen arrived at the church in a Rolls Royce wedding car and she looked absolutely fantastic – stunning in fact, in her wedding dress. After a short discussion with the vicar outside she was led in to the church for the start of the wedding ceremony. As you will see from some of the photographs St Mary’s is a fantastic old church, very grand, very beautiful.

Following the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom mingled with guests and posed for photographs outside the church. They were then driven slowly through the village, followed by the guests, to Bocking Village Hall where they held the wedding reception.

Helen and Lee were a dream to work with and throughout the day we got some beautiful photographs. I particularly like the low light shots taken in the church, the photos taken in the Rolls Royce, the romantic portraits taken at the reception and of course the game of snooker!

The Meadows in Sudbury, close to the Quay Theatre and the Granary is a beautiful area, very picturesque and a wonderful location for doing pre wedding photo shoots. It’s a location I have used a number of times and has lots of great features including, the river Stour running through the rich green meadows and rows of glorious colourful trees lining the route of the old disused railway track.

It was here that I met up with Jacqui and Dan one Sunday morning a few months ago to do their pre wedding photo shoot. This was a great opportunity for the three of us to get to know each other before their wedding at The Bull Hotel in Long Melford later in the year. The day was a beautiful autumn day absolutely glorious, the sun was shining and the leaves on the trees were golden brown and all around was peaceful and calm. A great day to be in rural Suffolk.

Jacqui and Dan are a lovely couple who live in Halstead just a few miles away. Although they were both a bit self conscious and perhaps feeling a bit awkward at first, they were also really keen enthusiastic and totally immersed themselves in the photo session. We managed to photograph in a number of different locations and included some nice portraits against brightly painted walls, a romantic walk strolling along the old railway track and some dramatic shots into the sun. They both said they had fully enjoyed the shoot and were looking forward to seeing the photos. It was also clear too that they had benefited greatly from the pre wedding photo shoot, they became increasingly relaxed and more natural as the morning went on I was looking forward to photographing their wedding later in the year.

Some time back I did a photo shoot of Dave on his Harley Davidson motorcycle. Dave who lives in Halstead had seen some portraits I had done for his friend Ian on his motorcycle at Gosfield Airfield, he was so impressed that he insisted that he wanted some too. This is one of my favourites from the shoot and further images can be seen here

It was a great privilege for me to photograph the wedding of Joy and Sam at the fantastic wedding venue of Hedingham Castle in Castle Hedingham and at The White Hart in Great Yeldham, both only a short distance from each other in wonderful north Essex. Both delightful historic buildings and both fantastic for beautiful wedding photography.

For those of you that follow my blog you will know that I did a pre wedding photo shoot with Joy and Sam only a few weeks before the wedding. They are a fantastic couple who only live a short distance away in Halstead. Sam in particular is quite a character with his Mohican haircut, goatee beard and his pierced ears. He had his hair done especially for the wedding (as you would expect) in striking pink and black and with matching cravats and handkerchiefs.

I started the day by Photographing Joy together with her bridesmaids who were all busy drinking tea and eating biscuits whilst getting ready in the bridal suite at The White Hart. It was also great opportunity to take some detail shots including photographing her dress, jewellery, perfume and her very impressive shoes. (See the first picture)

I then went off to Hedingham Castle where I met up with Sam, his Best Man Luke and his groomsmen to take some photographs before the wedding ceremony. They were all a great bunch of lads, up for a laugh and very cool about having their photograph taken.

Sam’s occupation is a bus driver and he had hired a beautiful big old red bus (not sure what the proper tilt should be) to convey all the guests between the White Hart and the castle.

Joy arrived on time in a beautiful silver Jaguar, together with her dad and she looked absolutely fantastic – stunning in fact, in her wedding dress and with her flame red hair. After a short discussion with the registrar and her bridesmaids outside, her dad escorted her in to the castle for the start of the wedding ceremony.

Following the ceremony, the Joy and Sam mingled with guests and posed for photographs in front of the castle. They then had a short but romantic walk alongside the lake whilst sipping chilled Champaign, before hoping on the last bus, along with their guest for the trip back to The White Hart.

The rest of the day was brilliant and everything seemed to run very smoothly. The formal group shots, guests enjoying themselves, some special time with Joy and Sam together with their gorgeous little daughter Lydia, the line up for the wedding breakfast, the cutting of the cake etc and of course I photographed them all.

Joy and Sam were a dream to work with and throughout the day we got some beautiful shots. I particularly like the window light portraits taken of Joy and her bridesmaids at the White Hart and romantic shots of Joy and Sam down by the lake at Hedingham Castle

In July last year I was lucky enough to photograph the suffolk wedding of Jade and Dave at Holly Trinity Church and the Bull Hotel in Long Melford. It was a beautiful wedding but what was also so special for me was that Dave’s step dad is a photographer; and it was a great compliment to me to be asked to photograph it.

Well what was equally a great honour was that a few months later Trevor himself decided to get married to his lovely partner Jane and again they asked me to photograph the event.

Trevor and Jane held their ceremony at the Registery Office in Sudbury also, in Suffolk. They were both relaxed and looked wonderful on their special wedding day and it really nice to see them both again. It was also great to see Jade and Dave and a number of other guests who had also been at the previous wedding.

The ceremony was held in the ceremony room (of course) which is also the main room in Sudbury Town Hall. It’s a very nice large room and had some beautiful directional light coming in from the windows.

Following the ceremony we all went outside to take some more photographs and specifically the few formal group shots that Trevor & Jane had requested. Jane had specifically asked that the group shots be taken next to the water fountain in the town centre, the reason being that, not only is it a particularly attractive stone water fountain but also it is the one which was written about in the story ‘The Hundred and One Dalmatians’ written by Dodie Smith.

 

Just before midnight they came to the market town of Sudbury.

Pongo paused as they crossed the bridge over the River Stour.

“Here we enter Suffolk,” he said, triumphantly. They ran on through

the quiet streets of old houses and into the market square. They had

hoped they might meet some dogs and hear if any news of the puppies

had come at the Twilight Barking, but not so much as a cat was stirring.

While they were drinking at the fountain, church clocks began to strike

Midnight.

Extracted from “The Hundred and One Dalmatians”

The bride and groom then went on to a local restaurant to enjoy a private wedding reception with their guests.

I have prodeced a selection of photographs from the wedding below, please leave your comments at the end.

I recently photographed the wedding of Karla and Mick at the Great Hallingbury Manor Hotel situated in the heart of Great Hallingbury village in Hertfordshire, very close to the Essex border and just a few miles from Stansted airport.

I have to say I think the Great Hallingbury Hotel is an ideal wedding venue, it’s an elegant boutique style hotel which boasts a small tranquil lake with a bridge which crosses to an island in the middle; it has beautiful lawns and lots of colourful flower beds. A beautiful location for a wedding and for wedding photography.

For those of you that follow my blog you will know that I did a pre wedding photo shoot here with Karla and Mick some months previously.

I started the day by Photographing Karla, who had stayed the previous night in the bridal suite, together with her bridesmaids; we captured some stunning portraits together with detail shots of the wedding dress, jewellery, flowers and shoes.

I then met up with Mick in the main hotel, where I photographed him nervously getting ready followed by detail shots of the ring and then some memorable pictures of him together with his sons.

Following the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom mingled with guests and posed for photographs outside in the glorious sunshine and beautiful gardens.

Karla and Mick were a dream to work with and throughout the day we got some beautiful photographs. I particularly like the natural light portraits taken of them posing on the lawn and the shots of Karla taken on the patio next to the lake. They are a wonderful couple and I wish them lots of luck and happiness in their life together
