BEN & AMY'S MAIDENS BARN WEDDING

Ben & Amy-551.jpg

Ben and Amy got married at the beautiful Maidens Barn in Essex and had a outdoor ceremony in the courtyard garden. There is something so special about Amy and Ben. Their closeness and love for each other is infectious and makes you smile from ear-to-ear. It’s a good thing I could use my camera to hide my tears of joy during the ceremony! I have pulled together some of my favourite shots from their day, although I found it pretty hard to narrow it down!

My last winter wedding just a few days before last Christmas was Sarah and Steven’s Crondon Park Wedding in Essex. Sarah and Steven incorporated plenty of rich wintry colours and nods to Christmas into their wedding day. The Baronial Barn was seasonally dressed with plenty of golden fairy lights and a huge beautifully dressed Christmas tree, plus the couples love for North London football team Tottenham Hotspurs was incorporated into the day too. Enough talking, check it out for yourselves.

MIKE & STEPH'S ESSEX BARN WEDDING

Essex Barn Upminster Wedding Photographer-210.jpg

I am taking you back to the summer for Mike and Steph’s wedding at The Broadfields Essex Barn in Upminster. Prosecco, miniature ponies, a bright red MG, confetti, sunset, smokebombs and sparklers….that just about sums up their day!

Mike and Steph got married at Church of St Laurence in Upminster, which has a pretty cool history dating back to the 14th century.

After the ceremony, we had time for confetti and some portraits whilst the guests jumped on the double decker bus to the reception venue. Mike and Steph drove themselves in a kick ass red MG, after being coerced into photographs with some miniature ponies who just happened to be outside of the church.

Essex Barn Wedding Reception
After the short journey through Upminster on the double decker bus, the guests were dropped at the Broadfield Essex Barn nestled in the woodlands of Thames Chase to kick off the afternoon reception. Dinner, speeches and a whole lot of prosecco ran into the early evening.

After dinner we headed back outside of the barn for a little walk and some relaxed photos. The guests hit the photobooth in the beautiful cute form of Winnie the Vintage Caravan. Just before sunset, cutting of the cake took place outdoors and then we all hit the dancefloor. We ended the evening with colourful smoke bombs, sparklers and a pretty cool sunset.

FIFTY AMAZING HEARTFELT WEDDING MOMENTS

Here we are, fifty of my favourite in-between moments! Not posed, not directed, not written on the schedule. These fifty shots are the reason why I don’t interrupt anything about your day. These are why I stay in the wings, observing and waiting for these moments to unfold, which sometimes happen in just a split second. These are the photographs that make you say “Damn girl! I didn’t know you got that!”

For me, these moments are absolute gold and a joy to look back on. Check them out, you will see what I mean!

I often get asked if I take the traditional type group shots. The answer is yes, but they don’t have to be as formal as you think. Check out my blog post showing how Group Shots Don’t Have To Be Boring.
