Hello everyone and welcome to another wedding post of our work.  The four star Ettington Park Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon is a very sought after wedding venue.   Ettington will appeal to anyone planning their perfect vintage wedding in the UK.   Jolene & Joseph from Santa Barbara, California fell in love with this wedding venue after a long long search.

The building has towering turrets, colourful brickwork and classic arched windows.  The grandeur of this Neo-Gothic mansion has unforgettable architecture that will really enhance your wedding day experience.

The happy couple spent a long time in planning their special day.   They really wanted a castle ceremony but with the luxury of a hotel.

The wedding ceremony was planned to take place in the ruined church on the hotel grounds, so after capturing some images of the architecture I joined the Bride and Groom who were getting prepared in their rooms.

The Groomsmen did not take long to get ready.  I left Stuart my second photographer with them and met with Team Bride!

Hello and welcome.  This is just a quick post to you the highlights from the wedding of Katy & Barny at the Waltham Abbey registry office.

The office is located at Highbridge St, Waltham Abbey EN9 1DE opposite the church.  Katy & Barny arrived together with  a small party and so the informal wedding ceremony began.  They had a great time and she could not stop smiling 🙂

After the ceremony we created some private portraits and then moved outside to the church and park.  The weather lately had been pretty bad but not today!

After our walk through we stopped at the little wooden bridge  for some last portraits.  Although it was a small wedding they still had a great experience with me.  They have come away with some fun memories!

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.
