The wedding of Emma & Liam from Witham in Essex

About two years ago I photographed the wedding of Emma’s friends Ashlea and Chris at Gosfield Hall. When Ashlea showed Emma her album she absolutely loved it and vowed if she ever got married she was going to book me as her photographer. (Which when I heard about it gave me a lovely warm glow inside ah!)

Well anyway, two years later Emma and her boyfriend Liam decided to get married and…. hey you guessed it they booked me to photograph the wedding.

Emma and Liam are a real down to earth ‘Essex’ couple who live in Witham with their two lovely children. They got married at St Andrews Church in Hatfield Peveral and then went on to the Rivenhall Hotel for their reception.

On the big day itself Emma and her bridesmaids got ready at Emma’s mum and dads house which is also in Witham, it was there that I joined them. There was a real buzz going on, a hive of activity, with people doing hair, people doing make up, lots of chat and laughter and… coffee (yeah!).

Whilst they busied themselves I wondered around the house and got lots of nice detail shots of the wedding dress, bridesmaid’s dresses, children’s clothes, shoes, jewellery and the flowers, which were gorgeous.

It was also a great opportunity to take some photos of everyone getting ready and some portraits of the bride.

From there I then went on to the Church where I met up with Liam together with his best man Kane and the ushers, Ronnie, Declan and Louis. I think it’s fair to say Liam was feeling a little bit nervous but there was a good sense of humour amongst them all and his friends were definitely helping to keep him calm.

The bridal party arrived at the church in style, in two stretched limousines beholding a display of beautiful white and pink dresses, Emma’s dress was gorgeous and she looked absolutely amazing.

It was a very traditional ceremony which ran very smoothly and Emma and Liam were both brilliant. Everyone was very keen to congratulate the happy couple and shower them in confetti once we got outside and after a few formal group shots it was on to the Rivenhall Hotel for drinks and reception.

The rest of the day was very relaxed and great fun, it ran like a dream, reception drinks, wedding breakfast, speeches, chatting with friends and family, playing with the children and of course the first dance.

Emma and Liam were a lovely couple and great fun to work with. We captured some wonderful photographs and they went on to order a Graphi album which they were delighted with, Emma in fact absolutely loves it.
