The wedding photography of Stephanie & Simon, Great St. Marys, Sawbridgeworth & Quendon Hall, Parklands.
I had a really close call with the weather today, I thought it was going to start pouring down from the moment I arrived! Thankfully though, we managed to get all of our pictures outside.
Special mention has to go to Rick and Linda who spent all winter preparing their garden for the wedding! Many thanks to Rick for the guided tour of the grounds, it just goes to show how good a garden can look if you’re willing to put some effort in! I am not worthy…
Stephanie wasn’t ready when I arrived, of course, in fact, she was still at the hairdressers! It wasn’t a problem though, we had plenty of time. It wasn’t too long before all the girls were ready and we got some great shots of them in Ricks garden. Lovely.
When I arrived at the church, there was nobody there! I had a small moment of doubt, was it the right church??? Of course it was, everybody and I mean everybody was at the pub! Small note to self, head straight to the pub, bypass the church…
Anyway, everyone arrived on time, and the service soon began. Great St. Mary’s is a lovely church for photographs, the grounds are nice and the interior is quite bright. Sadly though, as is often the case with church weddings, we were restricted to a couple of shots from the back of the church.
After the service we had ample time to cover the formal photography in the grounds of St. Mary’s. We finished with the confetti shot at the gate and then headed on to…
Sorry everyone, I didn’t manage to get the name of the company who owned the fabulous car…
Anyway, back to Parklands, Quedon Hall, it is always stunning. Stephanie was very cold, I gave her the choice inside, or out? For her, there simply wasn’t a choice, it had to be outside. Not once did I hear her complain about being cold.
We got a selection of photographs outside, covering all of the grounds. I have to admit, we were a lot quicker than normal, I was really worried that the heavens were going to open any minute!!!
Many thanks to Kevin, who took his Best Man duties seriously, and really helped round people up and keep things moving… however, no thanks go to Kevin for shouting through the window how warm it was inside!!! Cheers mate, we were just a little chilly outside!
Here’s an unusual photograph, me!!!! As taken by the Grooms Mum, it’s me and Kevin, the Best Man. With a little help on the framing she could be a really great photographer!!!
Thank you very much Stephanie & Simon, and all the guests, I had a lovely time. I’m really sorry you guys didn’t have the weather you hoped for, but all said and done, it was a great day as far as I’m concerened.
