Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens are located close to the Braintree District Council offices in the Causeway in the lovely market town of Braintree in north Essex and it makes an idyllic location for a pre wedding photo shoot. It is a beautiful public gardens with lots of colourful flower beds, magnificent specimen trees, traditional wooden benches a picturesque pond, shelters and lots of different play equipment for children to play on.

It was here that I met up with Helen and Lee one Sunday afternoon 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 St Mary’s Church in Bocking 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 Essex.

Helen and Lee are an extremely nice couple who also live in Braintree only a fairly short distance away from the gardens. Though I have to say I’m not sure they were too happy with their decision to walk as they were a little warm and glowing when they arrived. Although both a bit self conscious they were also were both really enthusiastic and totally immersed themselves in the photo session. We managed to photograph in a number of different locations and included some nice reflections in the pond and some dramatic shots into the sun. They both said they had fully enjoyed the shoot and were looking forward to seeing the photos. They left the park happy and smiling (and heading straight for the pub). I was looking forward to photographing their wedding later in the year.

‘With over 25 years of bespoke wedding services, Stock Brook Country Club has long been established as the premiere wedding venue in Essex’ Well that’s what it says on their web site anyway and I have absolutely no reason to disbelieve it.

I have to say Stock Brook Manor is an excellent wedding venue, it’s set in over 250 acres of English countryside on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Stock in central Essex and It’s here that I photographed the wedding of Jane and Ben some few weeks ago.

For those of you that follow my blog you will know that I did a pre wedding photo shoot a few weeks ago and that unfortunately Ben was unable to make it on the day. It was therefore a pleasure to meet him for the first time on the wedding day itself.

The day started photographing the bride (Jane) together with her bridesmaids Caroline, Nina, Tracey, Seliha and Izzy (and also Jane’s mum who had come over from Ireland). They were all at Caroline’s house in Shenfield and it’s fair to say that all was in a state of very organised chaos when I arrived, there was a lot going on but everyone seemed to know what they were doing. I even got a cup of coffee, which always goes down well (remember that!).

After photographing the ‘bridal prep’ is was off to Stock Brook Manor to photograph the groom (Ben) together with his best man (men) Jake and Aaron, his two brothers. Like I said before this was the first time I had met Ben and I literally had no idea what he looked like, however we had no problems meeting up and I found him to be a really nice guy.

I photographed Jane when she arrived at the venue and I have to say she looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress, although the dress was all a bit ‘bundled up’ as she squeezed in to the front seat of her brother in laws Ferrari.

The ceremony itself was lovely and a great opportunity to capture some more beautiful photographs. Following this Jane and Ben held reception drinks whilst they greeted their guests before we set off to photograph a few formal group shots on a beautifully manicured lawn, (I think it’s actually a bowling lawn).

On one of my previous visits to Stock Brook Manor I had seen a fantastic line of trees just along from the main gate; I knew these would be a perfect setting for some beautiful wedding photography and so that’s where I headed next, along with Jane and Ben of course. Only this time Jane had to squeeze her dress into the front of my car (not quite a Ferarri I’m afraid).

The rest of the day was brilliant and everything seemed to run very smoothly. The line up, the wedding breakfast, the wedding speeches, the toast, the cutting of the wedding cake, the casino, the chocolate fountain and finally of course as traditional at every wedding – the first dance and of course I photographed them all.

Jane and Ben are a wonderful couple and they were an absolute joy to work with. I wish them lots of luck and happiness in their life together

The Great Halingbury Manor Hotel is an elegant boutique style hotel situated near Bishops Stortford on the Hertfordshire Essex border just a few miles from Stansted Airport. It’s an excellent location for wedding photography and also a great place to do a pre wedding photo shoot. It 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.

It was here that I met up with Karla and Mike a few weeks ago. It’s their intention to get married here in so it seemed like a good choice for the pre wedding shoot. I think it’s fair to say that Karla didn’t feel that comfortable in front of the camera, initially anyway. She said she didn’t like having her photograph taken and always felt self conscious whenever anyone pointed a camera at her.

I think it’s fair to say quite a lot of people fit in to this category and it’s one of the reasons I offer a pre wedding photo shoot alongside my wedding photography packages. It’s a great opportunity for the three of us to get to know each other and to feel comfortable and relaxed in each other’s company. It’s also gives me an opportunity to coach the bride and groom (to be) in how to relax in front of the camera and to pose in certain situations and help them to look their absolute best. It certainly worked for Karla, although she was apprehensive at the beginning she had certainly got more in to it by the end.

Weather wise it was it was quite a mixed bag, it had been raining most of the day but by the time we met up in mid afternoon the sun was shining beautifully and we got some great shots outside. However it was not to last and after about half an hour in we had a torrential down pour and finished off the shoot taking photographs inside the hotel.

A few weeks back I shot a studio photo session at my home based photography studio in Gosfield north Essex. On this occasion I had student photographer Becca Sidhu with me who was looking to develop her portfolio and to learn something about studio portrait photography including lighting and posing techniques. If you follow my blog you will know that Becca has photographed with me before when we photographed models Emma and Jade and produced some exciting environmental portraits on a shoot around Gosfield. You can see those photo here

On this occasion we were photographing model Emma again but this time it was along with her friend Nina. The plan was to shoot some high key portraiture but to also then apply some post production portrait re touching techniques, smoothing skin, enhancing eyes etc. The ultimate goal to was to produce some stunning beauty portraits / fashion style portraits.

The shoot went really well, Emma and Jade were great and really got in to the whole modelling thing, they bought a couple of changes of clothing and were brilliant at posing and following directions, although Nina did occasionally get a fit of the giggles. (But that’s ok it kept us all amused) We worked through a number of different posing and lighting set ups and came away with what I thought were some pretty good portraits.

I have produced a selection of images from the shoot below and will look to add some other at a leter date – stay tuned!

A couple of weeks ago I completed a pre wedding photo shoot at Stock Brook Manor located between Bilericay and Stock in Essex.

I have completed a number of pre wedding shoots over the years and all of them are special in their own way, but I have to say this one really was a little bit different than all of the rest – different that is in that only one of the ‘happy couple’ turned up.

Unfortunately and at short notice Ben was unable to make it and rather than cancel Jane came along on her own. Although it seemed a little strange at first, as I had prepared myself to be photographing a couple, we actually had a great shoot.

When I had met Jane previously she told me she didn’t like to be photographed and that she felt awkward in front of the camera. In fact that’s one of the reasons for planning this pre wedding photo shoot, to teach her how to pose and to feel relaxed in front of the camera.

The shoot was a great success, Jane did start off a little apprehensive and a little unsure of herself however she very quickly grew in confidence and towards the end was clearly enjoying it; and we produced some very beautiful very natural portrait shots.

It was a great joy recently for me to photograph the wedding of Emma and Andrew at Castle Hedingham in north Essex.

I started the day by Photographing Emma at her parents’ house in nearby Gosfield, She spent the morning there being pampered and having her hair and makeup done along with her three delightful bridesmaids, Sarah, Nikki and Charlotte. It was great to work in Gosfield because, as you may know it happens to where I live and for me was just a short walk down the road.

The wedding itself was held at St Nicholas’s church in the centre of Castle Hedingham village and it was here that I met up with Andrew, his Best Man Richard and his groomsmen Bob and Adam, 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. As a photographer I love it when people are relaxed and natural whilst in front of the camera.

Emma arrived at the church in a vintage wedding car and she looked absolutely fantastic – stunning in fact, in her wedding dress. After a short discussion with the vicar and her bridesmaids outside, her dad, Steve, escorted her in to the church for the start of the wedding ceremony. As you will see from some of the photographs St Nicholas’s is a fantastic old church, very grand, very beautiful and is definitely worth a visit.

Emma and Andrew are a fantastic couple from Sible Hedingham also in Essex and for those of you that follow my blog you will know we did a pre wedding photo shoot, in Castle Hedingham in April this year.

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 Hedingham Castle where they held the wedding reception.

The day of the wedding was gorgeous, the sun was shining, the sky was blue and I’m pretty sure the birds were singing too. The gardens at Hedingham castle are fantastic and from their elevated position give a fantastic view of the lake below. It’s a perfect location to take some stunning photographs.

Emma and Andrew were a dream to work with and throughout the day we got some beautiful shots. I particularly like the natural light portraits taken on the bridge in front of the castle and the shots taken using video light on the stairs in the main hall.

I have produced a selection of photographs below –

Prested Hall Wedding

Gaynor & Tony

 

It was my privilege back on the 29th April to photograph the wedding of Gaynor and Tony at Prested Hall near Kelvedon in Essex. As I’m sure most of you remember this was also a special day for another wedding as well – of course I’m referring to the Royal Wedding of William and Kate at Westminster Abbey. (As I had already agreed to photograph Gaynor and Tony’s wedding I unfortunately had to let Will’s and Kate down! But I think they managed to find someone else!).

Gaynor and Tony are a fantastic couple from Braintree also in Essex, for those of you that follow my blog you will know we did a pre wedding photo shoot, also at Prested Hall back in March this year.

The 29th was a beautiful day, with blue skies and bright sunshine, Gaynor looked fantastic in her wedding dress and Tony had scrubbed up pretty good too, looking really cool in his morning suite and teal coloured cravat and handkerchief. The bridesmaids were also wearing teal coloured dresses and looked delightful. Unfortunately one of the bridesmaids, Gaynor’s daughter, Chloe, was feeling unwell on the day and was unable to carry out her role. That was a real shame but I’m pleased that she soon recovered and is feeling better now.

Both Tony and Gaynor had previously told me that they felt a bit nervous and uncomfortable about being photographed, but that’s really very difficult to believe because they were both so relaxed and the photographs look so natural. I think having a pre wedding photo shoot definitely helped. We were able to get to know each other a lot better, I was able to gain their confidence and most importantly I was able to give them some tips on how to stand and pose to look natural and relax. I think we got some beautiful photographs but I particularly like the natural light portraits taken on the bridge and in the grounds of the hall.

I have produced a selection of photographs below –

Prested Hall is an excellent wedding venue situated just off the A12 and not too far from either Chelmsford or Colchester both also in the wonderful county of Essex.

Prested Hall – Pre Wedding Photo Shoot.

One of the reasons I love being a wedding photographer is because I get to photograph great people like Gayner and Tony. l first met them at their home in Braintree, where after showing them my portfolio and talking about the photographic services I offered, they booked me to photograph their wedding. The wedding is to be at Prested Hall, near Kelvedon in Essex on the 29th April this year.

This was obviously to be quite a popular date as since they decided upon it, a certain William and Kate have also decided to get married on the same day, unfortunately for them Prested Hall was already booked.

A few weeks ago I met up with Gaynor and Tony at Prested Hall to do a pre wedding photo shoot. Gaynor had previously said she was quite nervous about being photographed and so thought a pre wedding shoot would be an excellent idea. I have to agree, it’s a great way for the three of us to get to know each other and for me to give them some tips on how to pose and feel relaxed in front of the camera.

Just like my two previous pre wedding photo shoots (if you follow my blog you will know this) the weather was a bit cold and a bit windy and at some point during the session it began to rain – in fact when it came time to leave the venue it was absolutely ‘chucking it down’.

Non-the less we had a really good shoot, using mostly natural light and a variety of different poses. Both of them said they benefitted greatly from the experience and were delighted with the photos.

Engagement Photography in Sudbury Suffolk.

A few weeks ago I completed a pre wedding photo shoot with Louise and Mike, a really great couple, from Milford in Surrey. They both work for the same company involved in developing computer software and although they are based in Surrey Louise actually originates from Sudbury in Suffolk. It was in Sudbury, at Louise’s mums in fact, that I first met them almost a year ago and when they booked me to photograph their wedding. The time since then has gone incredibly fast but I have to say it was a great pleasure to meet up with them both again. We planned the photo shoot around the area of the Quay Theatre and local footpaths situated just off Sudbury town centre.

The day itself was cold and incredibly windy / breezy (you can tell if you look at their hair in the photographs) I’m sure it even started to rain at some point. Nevertheless, Louise and Mike were both wrapped up well and the shoot went ahead as planned. We had a great chance to try out many different poses, to photograph some natural light portraits and we also produced some great portraits using off camera flash.

After about an hour and a half we were done, we had lots of shots in the bag (or in the ‘can’ whatever the right terminology should be) and it really was starting to get quite cold and miserable. Hence we retired to the Quay Theatre were they very kindly made us some very welcome steaming hot coffee. Following this we all headed off to Moreves Barn at Great Waldingfield, this was to be Louise and Mike’s venue for their wedding reception and they had a meeting arranged with staff to discuss their wedding plans. I went along to check it out from a photographic perspective and make some plans / develop some ideas for the big day.

Following the day I was exchanging emails with Mike and in one of them he included the comment, ‘The photo shoot was really good, both Louise and I enjoyed it a great deal, and hopefully it will give us a more relaxed feeling on the wedding day”.

Below you will find a selection of photographs from our day, Louise and Mike have already seen them all and in fact ordered quite a few after receiving the prints Mike sent me another email saying, ‘We received the prints today and they are absolutely fantastic’.

Location Portrait Photography in Gosfield

A couple of weeks ago on a fine Saturday morning I went out on a photo shoot with student photographer, Becca Sidhu. Those of you that follow this blog will know that Becca is doing a photography course and has an interest in fashion photography but also enjoys wedding and portrait photography.

On this occasion Becca had arranged for a couple of her friends Emma and Jade to be our models for the day. The plan was to go out on a walk around Gosfield, the village where I live in north Essex and to shoot some outdoor / environmental portraits. We would be using a mixture of natural or ambient light as well as using some off camera flash.

I had done a recce’ earlier in the week to identify some locations we might use, including in front of some old garage doors, around the sports pavilion, in front of the Men’s Club and a number of locations in the nature reserve.

I have to say the morning went really well and we ran out of time long before we ran out of locations or energy. I was a bit concerned at the start though that our shoot was about to be cut short. Whilst photographing outside the garages we were approached by an elderly lady, my immediate thoughts were that she was about to tell us to clear off, however she was in fact after our help. She explained that her husband had collapsed on the kitchen floor and she appeared very concerned. I went off to help not quite knowing what to expect, however, luckily, all was not too bad. He walks with the help of a frame and he had simply fallen over on the kitchen floor and was unable to get back up by himself. Once I had got him back up and into a comfy chair we resumed our shoot.

The weather remained kind to us and we were able to experiment with a number of different camera and lighting setups.

I’m sure I speak on behalf of Becca, as well as myself, in saying a big big ‘thank you’ to Jade and Emma for doing such a fantastic job as models. They have not received any training, in fact I think this is the first time they had done it and they were both absolutely brilliant!

Pre Wedding Photo Shoot in Halstead Essex

Later on this year I will be photographing the wedding of Gemma and Joe a really nice really cool couple living in Ipswich. In preparation for that and as part of my wedding photography services we recently completed a pre wedding photo shoot. This was a great opportunity for the three of to get to know each other and for them to feel relaxed in my company and more importantly in front of the camera.

We actually did the session last Saturday 5th February in the public gardens in the charming rural town of Halstead in north Essex. I don’t know if you remember that weekend but it was incredibly windy, it was quite cold and it was threatening rain. We did think about doing an inside studio shoot, but decided outside was best and that we should brave the elements.

I’m really pleased we did, it was great fun. The public gardens were actually quite sheltered so the wind was not too much of a problem. Gemma and Joe were totally relaxed (on the outside at least) and we had an excellent time moving around to different locations and capturing some terrific shots.

There wedding will be in St Andrews church in Halstead followed by a reception at Smeetham Hall Barn in Sudbury Suffolk, I’m very much looking forward to photographing the big day itself.

 Wedding Photography at Maidens Barn.

I recently did a wedding photo shoot at Maidens Barn, a great wedding venue, near High Easter in Essex. The day was run by Braintree wedding photographer, Jeff Turnbull (www.jeffturnbull.com) and out models were Emma Pudney and Greg Ratcliff. (Who were both brilliant!)

Photo shoots are a great way for photographers to train. To develop their style and to stay up to date with current developments and trends within both the photographic and the wedding industry. It was a great opportunity to practice lighting and posing techniques and I came away with some really cool shots which I can now incorporate in to my wedding photography business, www.tonysalephotography.co.uk
