I photographed Hayli and Liam's Wedding at the beautiful Essex venue Crondon Park in April last year.
Crondon Park is an award-winning wedding venue ideally located in peaceful surroundings. The Baronial Hall, the main function room is a fine example of a Tudor barn with a special atmosphere. The venue has everything that is needed for a perfect wedding - its ceremony room, bridal preparation suite, bar and glorious private gardens.
I started the day by taking photos of the bridal preparations. This part of the day is often very emotional and full of excited anticipation, setting the tone of the day.
Hayli's niece Phoebe enjoyed getting ready and kept everyone entertained.
One of the most exciting moments of morning preparations is the bride getting dressed. The luxurious Granary bridal suite is spacious in its detached cottage and has a stunning view over the Crondon Valley.
The boys arrived and had fun with posing in front of the camera.
The first glimpse a father catches of his daughter in her wedding dress is a tender and unforgettable moment.
The ceremony was held outdoors under a floral canopy, which makes the perfect garden setting. We were fortunate with the weather!
The time straight after the ceremony is great for candid shots.
I waited for the guests to congratulate the new Mr and Mrs before we moved to family photos and the couple's portrait session.
An open golf course makes a perfect backdrop for a couple's photos with lots of space to walk around. We wanted to keep it as natural as possible without anything too posed.
Wedding Reception started with speeches.
Followed by a BBQ and celebrations.
The chocolate fountain was a great addition to the evening.
The guests loved the party and joined in on the dance floor straight after the couple's first dance.
It was an absolute pleasure to capture Hayli and Liam's Wedding Day and I look forward to photographing more weddings at Crondon Park this year.
