Vicky & Rob’s Silver End and Kelvedon Wedding.

Back in December last year it was my pleasure to photograph the wedding of Vicky & Rob, the ceremony being at Silver End Congregational Church followed by a reception at Kelvedon Labour Club.

They had first approached me a few months earlier about shooting their wedding and it was then that I learned that Vicky was a hair dresser and had styled the hair for a number of my previous brides. It was also nice to hear that they had been thrilled with their wedding photography and were very keen to recommend me.

I had never photographed at Silver End Congregational Church before or the Kelvedon Labour club so I was very much looking forward to the experience.

Like I said the wedding was in December and to be fair although it wasn’t snowing it was a pretty chilly and blustery winter’s day outside. Inside however it was cosy and warm and a perfect place to celebrate Vicky & Rob’s wedding.

Hi Tony

Thanks you so much for everything! We received the USB stick today. We Just had a look at the photos, they

are so lovely!

Hope you have a brilliant Christmas in New Zealand and happy New Year!

Many thanks again

The service was very inclusive with everyone encouraged to be involved and take part, the words of the hymns and images of the bride and groom projected for all to see. The reception too was equally warm and friendly with everyone having a great time.

Once the speeches the cutting of the cake and the first dance were done I left Vicky & Rob to party on with their friends and family. They really were such a lovely couple and wish them every success in their life together.

Here are a few images from Vicky & Rob’s amazing wedding day.

Newland Hall Wedding

Nicola & Steve

 

I was the wedding photographer for Nicola & Steve at their Newland Hall Wedding.

Although a little cool it was a beautiful day at the Essex Country House Estate.

I spent some time with Steve before the ceremony photographing him along with his best man and ushers. I then headed off to photograph Nicola as she arrived with her dad in the most amazing wedding car. I also managed to take a few portraits before the start of the wedding ceremony.

The interaction between Nicola & Steve during the ceremony was beautiful I don’t think I have ever seen a happier couple.

Afterwards everyone poured out onto the terrace area and in to the bar where they could enjoy a celebratory drink and congratulate the bride & groom.

There was definitely a close family & friend’s vibe to the wedding and it was really lovely to spend the day with them at Newland Hall.

If you are considering a Newland Hall Wedding (or anywhere else for that matter) please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your wedding photography requirements.

Below as a small selection of some of my favourite images from Nicola and Steve’s wedding.  I hope you like them.

The amazing wedding of Penny and Garry at Leez Priory

Leez Priory has to be one of the most prestigious wedding venues across the whole of Essex. It’s a stately Tudor mansion set in 40 acres of beautiful parkland and boasts a truly imposing presence. Leez Priory also has over twenty five years’ experience in providing perfect wedding services.

Leez Priory_Tony Sale Photography Follow Me on Pinterest

Penny and Garry’s Masquerade themed wedding at Leez Priory in Essex.

It’s always a great pleasure therefore for me to photograph a Leez Priory wedding, but that pleasure was even greater when the bride and groom were Penny and Garry. Why? I hear you ask; Well, although I don’t  know them well I have known them for a number of years, mainly through Penny’s parents, Dave and Carol and they have always seemed very nice,  friendly,  very happy and  well suited. What more I have always enjoyed their company.

I did in fact photograph Penny and Garry about a year prior to their wedding day at an event at the Colne Valley Golf Club. Gary later told me that they were so impressed at how amazing those photographs looked that they just had to book me to photograph their wedding.

The wedding was just before Christmas and Leez Priory looked wonderful decked out with Christmas lights, trees and decorations.  But, no matter how good the venue looked I’m afraid it was no match for the bride and groom, Penny and Garry, they looked stunning, truly amazing! The wedding had a masquerade theme, with everyone dressed in fine clothes or costumes and wearing traditional masquerade masks in a wonderful assortment of colours and styles.

The day was blessed with fine weather, pleasantly warm and with some bright winter sun.

The wedding was a sheer delight to photograph, I have produced a slide show of images below – enjoy!

The Essex Barn at Channels

 

Wedding photography at The Essex Barn at Channels Golf Club or to be more precise a winter wedding at the Essex Barn.

As often happens I get so busy photographing that I get a little behind in my blog posts and so here I am playing catch up again. This time featuring the Essex wedding of Nicola and Robert, or Nic and Rob as they are known to family and friends and which also happens to be the name of my two sons.

I did a pre wedding photo shoot with Nic and Rob some time back in the Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens, they are a lovely couple and we got some fantastic photos. It was nice therefore to meet up with them again on the big day itself.

The Essex Barn is a beautifully restored 17th century thatched ‘Essex Barn’ set in tranquil surroundings on the Clifford Estate just north of Chelmsford, on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Little Waltham. It’s a stunning wedding venue and it looked even more so for all of the festive Christmas trees and decorations which adorned the buildings.

Winter Wedding / Christmas Wedding

There really is something very special about photographing wedding during the winter months and especially during the Christmas period. There is something magical about Christmas trees, colourful decorations and roaring fires. I just love photographing weddings at this time of year.

I’m sure you will have seen photos of Holly and Chris before, I did a pre wedding photo shoot with them some months ago, at their home in rural Hertfordshire. We captured some beautiful images as we walked around their garden and the adjoining ancient woods.

 

Bridal preparation at Quendon Hall Follow Me on Pinterest

They are such a wonderful couple and you can just tell by the way they look at each other and tease each other that they are so deeply in love. They actually met at work some years ago, they were both communications officers working for Essex Police in Braintree. I think it may have been during their deep and meaningful conversations on night shifts that their romance began to blossom. (or so I’m told anyway!)

I’m not sure when exactly but I know they both left the police service and went to live for a number of years in New Zealand, where Holly, amongst other things developed a very keen interest in photography.

They chose an absolutely wonderful venue for their wedding, Parklands, Quendon Hall a 17th century mansion situated on the Essex / Hertfordshire border, very close to the Essex town of Saffron Walden.

It was here that I met them on the morning of the wedding day. I started off photographing Holly together with her mum and bridesmaids Karen and Julie, before going on to see Chris together with his best man (and brother) Andrew, his groomsman Vincent and pageboy Harrison as well as the two dads. (Holly’s dad and Chris’s dad)

I stayed with them and photographed the wedding for the whole day right up to the first dance and it truly was a wonderful experience. I should add that all of the table decorations and flower arrangements were designed and made by Holly and together with the Christmas tree, the decorations and lights it really did make for a very special atmosphere and memorable day. It was a pleasure to share it with them and to provide the photographs that they may treasure forever.

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.

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.

It was a real pleasure for me to photograph the wedding of Jane and Keir at the wonderful venues of Maison Talbooth and La Talbooth both only a short distance from each other in the picturesque village of Dedham in North Essex very close to the Suffolk border. Both delightful buildings and both fantastic venues for beautiful wedding photography.

Jane and keir live in Lowestoft in Suffolk but I had met them at La Talbooth a couple of months earlier to for a pre wedding photo shoot. That went really well and we got some fantastic images, but the weather had been absolutely awful, it had rained incessantly and I was hoping things would be better for the big day itself.

Luckily it was, although we had some rain it didn’t really interfere with any of the shots and it didn’t stop us going outside. I started the day by Photographing Jane together with her bridesmaid, (her sister Jenni), who were both busy, watching TV, drinking tea, eating biscuits and chatting away whilst getting ready at Milsoms Hotel, situated hallway between Maison Talbooth and La Talbooth. (I think they were trying to set a record for the total number of premises that could be used).

This was also a great opportunity to take some detail shots including photographing her wedding dress, jewellery, flowers and shoes.

I then went off to La Talbooth to meet up with Keir and his two sons, Brandon and Callum. Although I had met Keir before I had not met his sons so it was really nice to chat and get to know them. We got some excellent ‘boys’ photo’s around the lawns and building outside and then some really cool portraits in the rather grand interior. They were all a great bunch of lads, up for a laugh and very cool about having their photograph taken.

I then returned to Milsoms to photograph Jane in her dress and also as she was leaving for the wedding ceremony.

It was only a small wedding, just close family and friends about twelve guests in total, but it was such a touching and moving ceremony, I know Keir is actually quite a tough guy but he was the first to shed a tear (or two)

Following the ceremony, I photographed Jane & Keir in the beautiful gardens surrounding the Maison, there are some beautiful views there including views across the surrounding fields and views of St Marys Church at Stratford St Mary in nearby Suffolk.

The rest of the day was brilliant and everything seemed to run very smoothly. We all went on to the La Maison where the gardens were even more beautiful than those at the Maison Talbooth and the lawns even more manicured. It was here that the guests enjoyed a celebratory drink and that we shot the formal group shots.

Jane and Keir were great fun to work with and throughout the day we got some beautiful shots. I particularly like the portraits taken of Jane in her wedding dress, the photos taken during the ceremony itself and the romantic shots of Jane and Keir together outside Maison Talbooth.

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.

If you are planning a Suffolk wedding and would like to discuss your wedding photography then please contact me.

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

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

A few weeks ago I was asked by Graham to take to take some portrait photographs of his wife Anne to mark a very special birthday celebration. If I remember rightly she was going to be 50 very soon (but I don’t really like to ask). Graham and Anne are both very slim and athletic and both keep themselves very fit, training in karate several times each week.  They have recently returned from living in New Zealand, where they lived for a number of years and are currently staying in the picturesque market town of Braintree in north Essex. They joined me for the morning in my photographic studio in Gosfield only a few miles away. Before diving straight in we spent a few minutes discussing the format of the shoot and the types and styles of photographs we / they wanted to achieve.  We decided on a mix of fairly formal studio portraits followed by some more relaxed outdoor portraits in a nearby local park. The shoot went well and we managed to get a wide selection of photographs, I have produced some of these below.

Graham and Anne are both in excellent shape, very slim and athletic and both keep themselves very fit, training in karate several times each week. (perhaps that’s why they look so young.
