Part 3

On their return from the wedding ceremony in Stevenage the party pretty much kicked into full speed.  There will be no more portrait sessions or anything from me.  My team had now left and it was just myself and my assistant to capture the events as they unfold photojournalism style….and I loved capturing every minute of it completing my 15 hour wedding marathon of images.  The Manor of Groves is such a fantastic wedding venue.

The energy between them all was something and they rocked the Manor all night!  There were so many images to show but I have kept tit to the highlights as best as possible.  It was very hard to make the cut though…Http://EvendimImages.co.uk Http://Perfect-wedding.photography


It is a tradition that the Bride and Groom feed the first slices of cake to their immediate family after the cut.  But soon after the groom let his best man feed him and…that was not a good idea 😉

Part Two

Coptic Orthodox Wedding Photography | As with my previous post the day started out at the Manor of Groves and will certainly finish there but the wedding party now boarded multiple stretch limo’s that took them to the Stevenage Coptic Orthodox Church for the main ceremony.  As we predicted the weather was already starting to turn but I always bring lots of white umbrella’s incase of these situations.  A white umbrella always looks good with the bride too!  The ceremony lasted for 2 hours which is a shortened version of the main ceremony, take a look below.

The Manor of Groves

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.
