Wedding Photography at Channels Golf Club

Cutting the cake - cutting the cheese cake

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.

Holly and Chris’s Winter Wedding at Parklands Quendon Hall

Wedding at Quendon Hall

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.

Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP)

Like many wedding and portrait photographers I am extremely enthusiastic about training, developing my knowledge and skills, and also about keeping up to date with what’s happening in the photographic industry.

Last weekend was ‘The Societies’ annual conference and trade show, held at The Hilton Hotel on the Edgware Road and I went along for two whole days. It’s called ‘The Societies’ because it’s made up of a number of different societies representing different genres of photography,

Caitlyn & Ashley’s Wedding

Romantic bride and groom

Wow! What a romantic guy Ashley is, never met anyone like him! Do you know for the five days leading up to the wedding he sent Caitlyn a bouquet of flowers every single day. (You will see a great photo of them below).

Caitlyn and Ashley you may remember live in Braintree, I did a pre wedding photo shoot with them some weeks ago. Ashley’s parents live in Gosfield (very close to me) and it’s in their beautiful gardens that they held their wedding reception in a fantastic wedding marquee. The wedding ceremony itself was also held in the village at St Catherine’s Church.

Emma & Liam’s Wedding

Witham wedding photography

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.

Jane & Keir’s wedding at Maison Talbooth and La Talbooth

Wedding at Maison Talbooth in dedham Essex

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.
