Today on the blog is the Crondon Park Wedding of Lou and Paul. Another one of my favourite Essex barn venues. I first met Paul at a local business networking meeting a few years ago. It was one of those moments when you click instantly. A top guy with a sense of humour not all too dissimilar to my own. So I was chuffed when Paul's fiancé got in touch to chat about photographing their wedding. Honestly, I was over the moon. There is something very special about getting to photograph the wedding day of such an awesome couple, also knowing that I could ensure they would be well looked after throughout the day. I started the day at Greenwoods Hotel where Lou got ready in the company of friends and family. Whilst my trusty second shooter, Jay, met up with Paul and the groom's party at the cottage at Crondon Park. We had a great time in great company all day. Lots of giggles, smiles and few emotional tears too. Check out the highlights from their day.


This year, May has been my busiest month for weddings. I returned to a few of my favourite wedding venues as well as visited a handful of new places too. One of my favourite wedding venues is Crondon Park in Stock Essex, so I was thrilled to be back there in May for Natalie & Mark's wedding. The day started with bridal and groom preparations in Chelmsford in the company of their family and friends. After a beautiful ceremony at St Nicholas Church in Ingrave, we headed to Crondon Park for their wedding reception. Hats off to Reverend Canon Paul Hamilton for expertly doing something that no other Reverend has done in my company before - a post-ceremony selfie with the bride and groom! As one would expect for May, the day was scattered with sunshine and showers. But is didn't dampen the spirits of the day. Congratulations Mark and Natalie, and thanks for having me along for your day!
