Richard & Emma

Our super hot year of fantastic weddings continues with the fabulous wedding of Richard & Emma in Essex. We met the guys first early in the morning to take a few shots of them getting ready in their tuxedo's. 

Summer Heat... 

We had to finish shooting them outside as the temp was rising not only with the heat of the weather but also emotionally of what was to come.. The girls were just about finishing make up as we arrived so just in time to shoot some details before getting ready. 

Stunning Dress....

I have to say the girls all looked stunning as did the guys and I knew it was not only going to be a fabulous day picture wise but great people to work with also. 

Louise Perry Planner... 

It would also be the second time we have worked with the fabulous Louise Perry & team. So i could rest assured that everything would run as smooth as silk. Working with Louise is great as she just lets us do our thing, we both have mutual respect for each other and work harmoniously together. 

Essex Wedding...

The day was a stunning success with everyone coming out of the church to be greeted by fresh air and the ever increasing heat of the sunshine! We had some time outside the cathedral to do some shots of the bridal party as well as the couple. Everyone looked stunning as we looked for some shade to shoot in. Emma looked simply sublime in her dress with her bridal party complementing her every move.. 

Drinks Reception..

We all headed back after pictures to the stunning marquee that Louise & her team had spent I would think quite some time preparing. Drinks and Canape's were served on the lawn with ample shade and seating areas provided. The huge fountain also proved a cooling effect which everyone was very welcome of. An hour or so passed so we took the time to do some family shots as well as some documentary and details of the event. Everyone entered the marquee to fabulous live music & hankies being waved in the air! What an entrance! After the meal we had 5 mins as the sun was setting to take the couple to a nearby field only 30 steps walk from the marquee to do a few sunset shots. I am glad we did as the setting sun only lasted a few minutes but was worth it. This also gave Ben the drone operator working with Jessica the Videographer some time to do some shots also . Essex is a fabulous county and I love working there. The people aways look amazing and are great fun to work with. The suppliers on this wedding couldn't have been nicer also. It makes such a difference when everyone is working towards the same thing. 

A huge thank you to the couple Emma & Richard and to their families for their wonderful hospitality.
