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.

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!
