St Mary’s Church Bocking – Image of the Week

This is a photograph taken of Helen and Lee’s wedding a couple of years ago. They were married at St Mary Church in Bocking followed by a wedding reception at the Bocking Village Club. They were a really lovely couple, brilliant to work with.

I remember it well, the wedding was in fact on the 11th of November at 4.00 pm in the afternoon and there was very little, if any natural daylight left.

I remember they had planned it for this time in the hope of having a candle lit ceremony, sadly this was not to be I think health and safety regulations would have prohibited the sheer number of candles required to light such a large (and very beautiful) church.

What it did mean thought was that I had to rely heavily on the use of flash photography. I think that is undoubtedly one of the things I really love about this shot and why I have chosen it as my image of the week.

I think the focus of the light on Helen and the natural vignette from the dark surroundings give the scene a bit of a Hollywood feel. Very much enhanced  by the chauffer driven Rolls Royce. Reminds me of a movie scene with a glamourous Hollywood actress getting out of a chauffeur driven car.

Helen & Lee loved it, as they did all of their images. What do you think? Please feel free to leave a message below.

I love photographing wedding.

I love photographing weddings and I love photographing weddings in Braintree, it was a real pleasure therefore to photograph the wedding of Heather and Andy at St Mary’s Church in Bocking followed by a reception at The White Hart Hotel in Braintree.

Heather and Andy have know each other since childhood but have spent most of their lives living apart in fact Heather spent many years living in America where she had her two wonderful children Charlotte, who was the maid of honour and Thomas who gave the bride (his mum) away.

They live in Golders Green in North London where Andy works as a Park Ranger. He also has a great passion for fungi and runs a number of walks, forays and workshops. He has a great website to and you can find lots of details and photographs here, www.fungitobewith.org

I started the day taking some bridal prep photographs of Heather at the White Hart, the room she was in had this wonderful four poster bed and some beautiful light coming in through the window, it was perfect for capturing some gorgeous portraits, Heather really did look stunning.

I then met the boys, Andy and his brother Archie, who was also the Best Man, at St Mary’s Church and captured some portraits and fun shots of the two of them before the guests arrived.

Although it had been threatening rain in the morning it turned out to be a beautiful, warm bright day. The ceremony was tearful, poignant and romantic and the reception was full of love, fun and great humour.

Heather and Andy really are such a lovely couple, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them and I wish a long and happy life together.

The Bride Arrives With Her Son & Daughter

Here are some very kind words from Heather & Andy shorty after receiving their wedding photos.

My husband Andy and I were thrilled with our choice of using Tony Sale as our wedding photographer. Tony’s manner was very professional and he gave us lots of direction prior to the big day telling us what to expect and making sure we came up with our list of desire photos. He fulfilled our list to the letter and the quality of the photographs was incredible. He also managed a busy schedule from the various locations and was calm and respectful of our guests. I would highly recommend Tony for any photography engagement.
