I was delighted to be recommended to Laura and Andrew and then asked to cover their special day. I arrived at The Lion Hotel for the bridal preparations, it was buzzing and the atmosphere was calm and relaxed, the make-up and hair was under way and I took some great images along with the dress, flowers and shoes. All the bridesmaids finished their preparations and along with Sue helped Laura in to her dress - Laura looked absolutely stunning.
After taking some great family images with her Mum and Dad and then with the bridesmaids I left for Newland Hall Chelmsford to meet up with Graham who had arrived earlier to take some images of Andrew with his best man and groomsmen along with the guests arriving. Also here was Laura and Andrew's beautiful daughter Isla, in her bridesmaids dress.
The ceremony was outside, the weather was fine and it was great to see everyone seated ready for Laura's entrance, it was a lovely ceremony and after we moved to the front of the Hall for confetti and a group photo.
After drinks we went off with Laura and Andrew for some up close and personal images before taking all the essential family and friends groups, then it was time for the wedding breakfast. We then had some poignant and funny speeches, then it was time for cutting the cake and first dance, which everyone joined it with great enthusiasm.
