I started at Jacki's parents house early to cover all the bridal preparations, taking all the dress detail, shoes and flowers and waited for everyone to return for having their hair and make up done. All the dresses were beautiful and two little ones as well, after the bridesmaids got ready it was time for them and Jacki's Mum to help her get into her dress, Jacki looked stunning, just time for a quick glass of bubbly and it was time for all of us to get into the mini bus for the journey to The Savoy Chapel in London. Meanwhile Graham had gone to the Prince Regent Hotel to meet up with Neil, the Best Man and Groomsmen along with his family over from Jersey, he took some great images and had some fun with the guys, they then all boarded the red Routemaster bus and set off for the Savoy Chapel, the journey up there was very quick for both buses and we arrived in plenty of time.

Jacki's Dad had special permission to get married in the very special Savoy Chapel, it is a wonderful church and the choir added to the unforgettable experience, after the ceremony we all went out into the garden and threw the confetti and took some family and friends groups. When this was completed we all boarded the Routemaster and Jacki & Neil went in a white Cab back to The Prince Regent Hotel for welcoming drinks, after some mingling time we took some more family and friends groups and then took Jackie & Neil of for some lovely personal images. We then went in for the wedding breakfast and there was great applause when they walked in, after this everyone enjoyed the moving and funny speeches, then the tables were cleared and the cake was bought out for the big cutting and then into a very special and unique first dance.

All in all a wonderful and happy day and many happy memories.

Jo & Peter's Special Wedding Day The Prince Regent Hotel https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2017/1/jo-peters-special-wedding-day-the-prince-regent-hotel It was lovely to hear from Jo, although Jo & Peter had moved away from Woodford family and friends were still here and they chose The Prince Regent and wanted me to cover their special day.

We arrived at The Prince Regent in plenty of time to meet up with Peter and the Best Man to take the traditional images with the rings, then we waited for Jo's arrival which was in plenty of time, we took some family images outside before heading in for the ceremony which was lovely. We then moved out to round where welcoming drinks were served, after some mingling, meet and greet time we went outside for the family and friends group photos. This was followed by the confetti throwing which is always good fun and we always get some great images. We then took Jo and Peter of for some personal images which is always a good time to chill out. After a little while we went inside to await Jo & Peter's entrance before sitting down for the wedding breakfast, when this was finished there were some very good speeches and then the room was cleared ready for the evening. We then waited for the cutting of the cake which was lovely and then straight into the first dance which was very poignant.

It was a great day enjoyed by all and we captured many happy moments.

We waited for Maria to arrive and captured some lovely images during the ceremony, after this there were drinks and mingling in the garden, it was a warm summers day. After this we took all the family and friends groups which was great fun and then we took some casual images of people relaxing and having fun.

Lauren & Adam's Wonderful Wedding Day at Newland Hall Chelmsford 7th April 2016 https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2017/1/lauren-adam-wonderful-day-at-newland-hall-chelmsford We met Lauren and Adam at a wedding fair and arranged a meeting and were delighted to be asked to cover their special day.

I arrived at Lauren's parent's house for the preparations, there was much excitement and the hair and make-up was under way, I captured this for Lauren and the bridesmaids, the dress and all the accessories. After the bridesmaids and her Mum and Dad were dressed it was then time to put Lauren's dress on, it was stunning and she looked beautiful, after taking shots of everyone and the opening of a bottle of bubbly I left to meet Graham at Newland Hall Chelmsford. Graham had arrived earlier to meet Adam, his best man and ushers, taking the traditional images and some fun shots.

It was then time for Lauren and her Dad to arrive, following the bridesmaids and her Mum down the long drive, we took some lovely pre-ceremony images before Lauren and her Dad walked in to a crowded room to meet up with Adam waiting patiently at the front. It was a lovely ceremony and then we were in front of the house for confetti, and a large group photo before family and friends groups in the garden, we then took Lauren and Adam off for some up close and personal images before the wedding breakfast was served.

When this was finished we moved onto speeches which were funny and touching, the tables were then cleared and Lauren threw her bouquet which caused great excitement and the cake was bought forward for cutting closely followed by the first dance.

It was a lovely day, the weather was kind and family and friends had a great time, we took many images to capture the day and so many happy memories.

Kayleigh & Lee's Country Fayre Wedding Barleylands 2nd August 2014 https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2015/1/kayleigh-lees-country-fayre-wedding-barleylands-2nd-august-2014 Kayleigh & Lee's enquiry came through a recommendation and I was delighted to be asked to cover their special day at Barleylands Farm after a church service.

It was a lovely day and I arrived at Kayleigh & Lee's house early for the bridal preparations, it was calm and collected and very relaxed, plenty of time to take some great images of Kayleigh who looked stunning along with the bridesmaids and Amanda & Neil her parents - not forgetting the two Westies!

The family had worked really hard and had made many of the accessories by hand which gave everything a lovely touch. The classic old VW Campervan arrived and took Amanda and the bridesmaids off to the church and then returned for Kayleigh and her Dad.

Graham had arrived at the church in time to cover the Groom, Best Man and ushers shots along with Lee's family, I joined him there ready for the Campervan's arrival.

It was a lovely service in a very old church that had a balcony that allowed us to get some great images looking down, there were some great hymns which were sung with gusto, we then had the signing of the register and then Kayleigh and Lee walked up the aisle as newlyweds to the accompaniment of "I'm forever blowing bubbles".

We gathered outside and the happy couple greeted their guests and mingled, after a while we covered the list of family and friends groups, then moving down the steps where bubbles were blown and confetti thrown.

They then got in to the Campervan for the short journey to Barleylands Farm where a Marquee had been erected and inside it looked absolutely stunning, decorated by family and friends - a real country fayre theme, old china, flags and cupcakes on each table.

We finished off the list of groups in front of the lake whilst everyone mingled and enjoyed drinks. we then took Kayleigh & Lee off for some up close and personal shots around the lake.

The food was supplied by a Fish & Chip van that duly arrived and started cooking and it was great to see everyone queuing up for their food, after this deserts were served and we moved onto speeches which were moving, emotional and funny.

We then went outside to capture some casual images before moving back inside for the cutting of the cake and finally the first dance which was very romantic, everyone then got onto the dancefloor to join them.

It was a lovely day with lots of unusual touches and ideas which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone there.

Cheryl & Matthews memorable Wedding at Ye Olde Plough House 13th July 2014 https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2015/1/cheryl-matthews-memorable-wedding-at-ye-olde-plough-house-13th-july-2014 I met with Cheryl & Matthew early in 2014 and I was delighted when they chose me to cover their special day at Ye Olde Plough House at Bulphan, a first for me so I was glad to meet them there before the big day to have a look round and check out the many lovely locations for the personal shots.

I arrived in plenty of time to capture the preparations in the Bridal Room, there was a great buzz of excitement and activity - despite this Grace the flower girl fell asleep! Cheryl and the bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning. Graham arrived early to catch the Groom, Best Man and ushers in the grounds and the guests arriving. It was a very hot day and Cheryl & Matthew had chosen to have the ceremony outside which was wonderful, we walked through the grounds to the flower arch capturing many great images on the way. It was a lovely intimate ceremony - sealed of course with a kiss.

After the ceremony there were drinks and time for mingling before we worked our way through the list of family and friends groups, when this was completed we took Cheryl & Matthew off for some personal images, using all the great settings in the grounds. When we returned a walk through the confetti line up was captured.

We then moved inside - the room was set out beautifully and a delicious meal was served, after this we had some moving and funny speeches.

We then moved outside whilst the room was cleared, enjoying the mingling and drinks were served, Cheryl then threw the bouquet which was a time of great excitement, it was well caught causing much hilarity.  

After a while we went inside where the stunning cake had been moved forward for the ceremonial cake cutting followed by Cheryl & Matthew sharing a taste!

The cake was moved away and the floor was cleared for the first dance which was very smooch and romantic, after a while everyone joined them on the dance floor and the atmosphere was one of pure happiness.

A photo booth was on site and this caused much hilarity, all in all a very happy well organised day that was enjoyed by everyone and we were pleased to be a part of.

Kirsty & Nates Wonderful Wedding at Rowley Mile Racecourse 13th September 2014 https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2015/1/kirsty-nates-wonderful-wedding-at-rowley-mile-racecourse-13th-september-2014 It was a very special moment when my God- Daughter Kirsty asked me to cover her wedding to the lovely Nate, I knew it would be a very emotional, happy and memorable day.

I arrived at her parents Mandy & Drum's house where Kirsty was getting ready along with her four bridesmaids, also there were her two brothers James and Connor and her Grandparents Stan & Daphne - a lovely family occasion.

After the hair and make-up was completed Kirsty put on her dress - it was stunning and she looked absolutely radiant, everyone was so proud.

I took some images of everyone in their finery before leaving for the Church, meanwhile Graham had arrived at the Tharp Arms where the Groom, Best Men and ushers and guests were meeting, taking some traditional and casual images, I joined him there and we waited for the bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride to arrive, they duly arrived in a wonderful car. After the guests went into the church we waited for Kirsty & Drum to arrive in another traditional vintage white Rolls Royce, we took some great images outside the church before we then went inside for the service.

The service was lovely, informal and relaxed, the usual images were taken, taking the vows, signing the register then walking out to the sound of the church bells. We then took the family and friends groups before the confetti throwing at the church gate, then into the cars for the journey to Rowley Mile Racecourse Newmarket. 

The weather was great there, the sun came out and everyone mingled and toasted the couple with Champagne, after a while we took Kirsty & Nate off for some up close and personal images, there was lots of setting to get some great images, we then had great fun when the Groom, Best Men and Ushers lifted Kirsty up for some great images. We finished with a group photo of the whole wedding party in one of the grandstands.

Everyone then moved inside and found their table before the newly weds were announced into the wonderfully laid out banqueting room, a scrumptious meal then followed which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. We then moved onto the speeches which were very entertaining and moving, the room was then cleared ready for the evening celebrations. The wonderful cake was bought forward for the ceremonial cutting which was duly captured and when this was cleared away the first dance was announced and Kirsty & Nate took to the floor and after a while they were joined by other guests.

All in all it was a wonderful day that went to plan and was enjoyed by everyone. 029029 030030 035035 060060 078078 110110 123123 126126 148148 168168 202202 237237 270270 276276 Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse Bride & Groom at Rowley Mile RacecourseBride & Groom at Rowley Mile Racecourse

Shirley & Mark's Stunning Wedding at Spains Hall 24th August 2014 https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2015/1/shirley-marks-stunning-wedding-at-spains-hall Photographing a wedding at Spains Hall was a first for us so we were delighted when Shirley & Mark contacted us at Brentwood Wedding Photography and asked us to cover their wedding.

It was a beautiful day in August and we arrived in plenty of time, I went up to the stunning bridal preparation room and Graham went to spend some time taking images of the Groom, Best Man and other guests arriving.

Shirley's dress was amazing and there was much excitement getting ready and when their daughter Isobel arrived she looked like a princess. It was a very intimate ceremony in the classic wooden panelled room and the happy couple left to great applause, there was time for a quiet few minutes in the anti-room where we took some beautiful images, then outside to the front of the hall for a cloud of confetti. There was then time for some mingling with their guests before we took family and friends groups, including one from the upstairs with Shirley and Mark and all their guests on the lawn.

We then took Shirley and Mark off into the grounds for some up close and personal images, the grounds at Spains Hall are perfect for wedding photography, absolutely stunning with so many opportunities for beautiful images.

We then moved over to the barn for drinks before everyone gathered in the dining area, giving Shirley & Mark a rousing round of applause when they were introduced. A delicious meal was then served which everyone enjoyed, followed by some emotional speeches. In the foyer there was a large table laid out with a full range of sweets - shrimps, lips chocolate hearts and of course Love Hearts, this was enjoyed by everyone.

A little later when the room had been cleared the cake was readied for the traditional cutting which was lovely and then in to the first dance, which was enjoyed by everyone who then joined the happy couple on the dance floor.

I must say photographing a wedding at Spains Hall was a magical experience for us and we hope to be back there soon.

Kelly & Paul's Wedding at Brentwood Registry Office https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2014/12/kelly-pauls-wedding-at-brentwood-registry-office Brentwood Registry Office is a great place for wedding photography, small and very intimate. I was very pleased to receive Kelly's call asking me to cover her and Paul's wedding there in August, I arrived in plenty of time to catch family and friends arriving, then the Groom and finally the bride, Kelly looked stunning all the more so as she had made many of the accessories herself, it was plain to see her sons were very proud of her and pleased for both her and Paul.

The ceremony was very relaxed and emotional, after the register had been signed we moved outside for the throwing of confetti which is always a fun moment that everyone enjoys. The weather was overcast all day and we had just finished the confetti when the heavens opened, we all took shelter and decided to wait until it had stopped as we were determined Kelly would get the photos she wanted on the common. It finally stopped and we took the opportunity to cross the road and went onto the common for all the family and friends groups before I took Kelly & Paul off for some personal images which was very easy as they were so happy and relaxed.

The whole wedding party then moved off for a meal at a local restaurant, a very happy family day.

Stephanie & Neil's Rat Pack Wedding at Ashwells Country Club Brentwood https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2014/12/stephanie-neils-rat-pack-wedding-at-ashwells-country-club-brentwood When I went to see Stephanie & Neil I could feel how relaxed and happy their wedding at Ashwells Country Club in Brentwood was going to be and I was so pleased when they asked us to cover their day.

Graham and I arrived early to catch Neil with his wonderful sparkly shoes and his Best Man Duncan relaxing in the bar and the guests starting to arrive, the weather was overcast and everyone was hoping the ceremony would be outside in the wonderful Gazebo, we were very lucky and the rain held off and there is something magical about an outside ceremony. Stephanie and her Bridesmaid arrived in good time and Stephanie looked stunning right down to her blue shoes with I DO written underneath!! Charlotte's dress was very pretty fitting in with the theme of the day.

The Rat Pack music playing through the speakers added to the atmosphere and everyone loved it, after the ceremony drinks and canopies were enjoyed before moving inside for some group photos and then we went outside with Stephanie & Neil for some personal images which was also very relaxed.

The speeches were next and they were moving and funny, tears and laughter. A superb hot buffet followed which was well received, then onto cutting the very ornate cake. After the floor had been cleared the DJ put on the music for the first dance was very romantic and after a while everyone joined them on the dance floor.

Weddings at Ashwells Country Club are always special and this was one of the most relaxed and stress free we have had the pleasure of covering.

Wedding Photographer Woodford Green & Brentwood Essex Lucy & Kevin Stockbrook Manor https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2014/4/lucy-kevin-stockbrook-manor-24th-august-2013 Lucy & Kevin 24th August 2013

 
It was lovely to be asked to capture Lucy & Kevin's wedding as they are like family.
The forecast for Bank Holiday Saturday was dire but we hoped for the best - the predictions were accurate but nobody let the weather spoil what was a very happy and special day.
It started with me covering Bridal preparations at Lucy's parents Moira & Pete and Graham covering the boys at Kevin's parents Jackie & Jeff. We then set off for St Mary's at Latton church in Harlow for the ceremony - George, Oliver the page boys and Maya the flower girl performed their duties to perfection. It was one of the biggest bridal parties we had covered but a brief break in the weather allowed us to take some groups outside the church, we then moved off to Stockbrook Manor - a lovely venue, we then finished off the group photos and then moved onto the Wedding Breakfast.
This was followed but some great speeches and after short break the cake was cut and as the evening guests had arrived the first dance was played out.

I had a great day covering Debbie & Ray's wedding at Langtons Registry Office, full of fun and laughter! Phew what a scorcher!
I went to take images of Debbie's preparations, it was all calm and Debbie and the bridesmaids all looked great, it was a touching moment when Debbie's Dad Arthur arrived and saw her for the first time. We then went onto Langtons, it was great the have the whole place to ourselves, free to take photos where and whenever we wanted, it was a lovely personal ceremony followed by Debbie & Ray releasing 2 white Doves and Arthur releasing 1 for his Wife and Debbie's Mum - very moving.
After some family group photos a great meal was served followed by some hilarious speeches, lots of tears and laughter we then went outside to take some personal images of Debbie & Ray around the grounds. The cutting of the cake was next then onto first dance, it was a day enjoyed by everyone and it was great to share it, everyone made us feel very welcome.

Sharon & Chris got married in Las Vegas earlier in the year and held a celebration party at Harefield Manor
for friends and family, it was just like a wedding without the Ceremony and I was pleased to cover it for them.
I went along to take some images of Sharon getting ready and with her family in the garden.
It was a hot day but storms were forecast for about the time the party started,
but we were very lucky and they held off until we went inside,
the room looked great and we were grateful for the air conditioning!
We took some family and friends groups followed by confetti.

I was very pleased to be asked to cover Danial & Sadia's wedding at Redbridge Registry Office on June 22nd 2013. It was a lovely day, I went to take some images of Sadia's preparation which was fun, the bouquet was stunning - covered in pastel jewels, Sadia arrived at Queen Victoria house in a beautiful carriage drawn by 2 lovely white horses. The members of both families were there, Sadia's sisters were bridesmaids and her nieces were flower girls and her nephew carried the rings, and it was a lovely intimate ceremony. We then went outside for confetti and the taking of family groups. All in all a very happy day.

I was pleased to be asked to cover Claire & Nicky's wedding at The Reid Rooms, the weather could have been kinder but nothing was going to over shadow such a happy family day.
The Bridesmaids in beautiful blue dresses and Claire's Mum Rose and Son Harry arrived first and then Claire arrived with her Dad and Daughter Isabella in a wonderful cream Rolls Royce.
It was a lovely personal service and the room was full of family & friends, the reception room was beautifully decorated with many lovely touches on the cake table. We completed the family and friends group photos and then Claire, Nicky and myself went over to the farmhouse to take some personal images, finishing with cutting the cake and then some entertaining speeches.

Wedding Photographer Woodford Green & Brentwood Essex Lucy & Alex Mulberry House https://www.lpphotos.co.uk/blog/2012/9/lucy-alex-11th-august-2012-wanstead Lucy & Alex 11th August 2012
Wanstead United Reformed Church and Mulberry House
 
Lucy and Alex booked me as their wedding photographer in March 2011 and it was worth the wait!
It was a hot sunny day and I started with bridal preparations at Lucy's parents house where all was very calm and relaxed. Claire and Victoria the bridesmaids along with Lucy's Mum Helen left in a veteran Rover and Lucy and Dad Andrew left in a veteran blue Jaguar belonging to Lucy's Uncle Richard.
The guests arrived in a Routemaster Bus and there were lots of interested bystanders, Alex and his Dad Mark as Best Man greeted everyone as they arrived, specially erected bells chimed out.
A lovely ceremony followed in the newly refurbished church - it looks great, a few photos outside the church finishing with some great confetti then everyone caught the bus to Mulberry House.
Mulberry House is a lovely venue, the grounds lend themselves to wedding photography, some casual photos whilst drinks were served then we went off for some personal images on the bridge over the pond and around the grounds then moved onto the group photos, we finished with the cutting of the cake in the beautifully laid out room.

Alyssa and David asked me to be their wedding photographer for the ceremony at Langtons Registry Office,                     a venue I love to photograph at.

It was a very warm day but a few showers threatened, luckily they came when we were inside, Alyssa's family came over from South Africa and joined David's family and their friends for a very happy occassion.

Alyssa and her dad arrived in a lovely cream and blue vintage Ford and joined everyone for a lovely ceremony, we then went into the picturesque grounds for some casual photos followed by some group images and then off for some personal images, finishing with some confetti.
Alyssa and David left in the Ford for a family celebration.

Sarah & Mark rang me in early June to ask if I could cover their wedding and I was very pleased to do so. I popped into see Sarah making her final preparations at the house, her dress was stunning and the bridesmaids were a vision in pink, then a grand white Rolls Royce arrived to take them to Brentwood.
Mark was there greeting guests and then went in for the ceremony. 
The weather could have been kinder, we had a few spots of rain and it was a little chilly but the confetti was thrown outside the Registry Office and then we moved over to the common for some family and friends group photos. Everyone apart from Sarah & Mark then left for the wedding breakfast whilst we then took some personal images.
It was a lovely relaxed occasion.

Aimee and Richard booked and arranged their wedding in a very short space of time and although there was a lot to do it all went very well.
It was a very rare hot day but gave them the opportunity to have the ceremony outside which was great in this lovely setting, Aimee looked stunning and the girls as bridesmaids and flower girls looked wonderful. I covered the bridal preparation and despite the room being very hot, it was all calm and everyone was ready on time.
Richard was also ready in plenty of time to greet the guests and have a cooling beer!

The ceremony was lovely with readings from Danielle and Rebecca and then it was drinks all round on the green. After drinks we took the group photos, one of all the guests from the Tower, confetti and then took Aimee & Richard off around the stunning grounds for some personal images, it was a lovely occasion, friendly and relaxed.
