I would like to say congratulations to Emma & Scott that married at St Marys church in Little Parndon, Harlow.

When I first met them and discussed their day with them I could tell how excited they were.  Emma and Scott are a charming couple and had a lot of idea’s being juggled for their one special day.  I was honoured to be chosen to capture it all for them.

Not everyone likes to have pre-bridal photography and I always keep this as an option.  After a lot of planning as to see if it is possible we decided to go ahead and capture that little bit extra of the day.

Next stop is the church itself as I left Gemma for her final prep moments and joined Scott and the guys as the guests arrive.

Emma & Scott are big photography fans, they both love the camera and they did not disappoint!  We did our first portrait session in the hire car from Crown Cars on arrival at the Harlow FC.

After some food the Bride & Groom wanted to do another portrait session and after some “persuading” to the football club they allowed us onto the pitch.  They almost said NO! and I was prepared to drive them quickly to my backup spot but it all turned out ok in the end.  I thought that this was good for Scott too as he is a big football fan.

Professional wedding photography, natural light photography in Essex, Hertfordshire and London.

Manor of Groves Wedding Photography | The Manor of Groves is an incredibly pretty wedding venue & hotel located  in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire.  I have been looking forward to capturing some amazing wedding photography for Phil & Martha at their chosen venue.  After 15hours of hard work I have managed to put into this post the highlights of the day and night.  Martha and Phil could not have picked a better day and wedding venue for their special day and myself and my team met with the bride and groom in their preparation rooms at the beginning of the day.

After finding their rooms we split into two teams.  Myself and the videographer with Martha and Stuart and Jack stayed with the Grooms party.  Already hard at work was the makeup team lead by Leslie Monica of Style Le Monde and she did an amazing job.  She even went above and beyond to make sure Martha looked good at all times even coming with us later on for the couples portrait session.  I would highly recommend her services, well done Leslie!

So while this was going on things were warming up with the groomsmen as they had all started to arrive and get dressed as men do in and organised fashion…sort of.  They did spend a good while watching youtube and learning about the art of putting on the cravat.  Too be honest its actually like this at every wedding I have seen 🙂

So both the Bride and the Groom are now ready and the tradition with this type of wedding (Coptic Orothodox) is they come together before the ceremony begins and they stay together for the rest of the day.  However first we want to capture his first look at the bride…..

No words….

There was still a lot of time before we travelled to Stevenage’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral and I also found out later that day it is going to rain and stay wet for the rest of the day.  Immediate family had now started to arrive and so we started the formal portraits early.

Part One

One of Harlow’s latest wedding venues is Moot House in the Stow area.  I finally have had the opportunity to photograph here looking after Kayleigh & Chris’s special wedding day.  Out of all the weddings I have ever covered to date, this one is the nearest to me ever!  Firstly the Stow is a 2 minute walk from my house and my first stop was to meet Kayleigh and the bridesmaids for their morning hair and make up photo session…which is a few doors down from me!

Time was really against us by the time the dress had gone on as the bridesmaids were a little behind with the hair and it was time for me to cross over to the Moot House and meet the groom and his guys and also capture the guests arriving.  Besides all that there was time to get his best side 🙂

Professional wedding photography, natural light photography and mobile studio flash photography in Essex, Hertfordshire and London.

I was delighted to have been chosen by Barry & Julie to cover their wedding day at Waltham Abbey Church.  Julie knew what she wanted and after searching online and contacting me she explained how she wanted her special day to evolve.

The chosen package comes with an engagement photo shoot but they had just recently been blessed with a young baby boy so I suggested they come over for a white screen family session instead in my home studio.

After this we planned to all meet for their wedding rehearsal at Waltham Abbey Church to meet the staff and go through where I can photo from and where I cant go.  Its important to attend the rehearsal as you get a good idea of the layout and whether you can use flash or not.

The big day finally arrived and it all went really well and I loved the details of the church too and wasted no time in capturing their day.  Congratulations to Barry & julie! check a few of the images of the day below.
