The wedding of Emily and Billy at Channels Estate:
When Emily and Billy asked me to be their Essex Wedding Photographer and I was more than pleased.
The ceremony and the reception would be at the Barn at Channels Estate it is the perfect wedding venue set in the Essex countryside just outside Chelmsford.
Emily began her bridal preparations at Channels lodge, just a short walk from the venue.
The evening before there was a minor panic when she found out her manicurist had been involved in a car accident and wouldn’t be able to attend!
But she managed to find a salon in Chelmsford.
The wedding took place on the Sunday, on the Saturday night we had some really bad storms with thunder and lightning, similar weather was forecast for the day of the wedding. But to our surprise the weather was fantastic, bright / dry and mainly sunny.
I do like to capture the preparations, us boys really have no idea of whats involved!
Its great to capture the atmosphere and have some fun with the bridal party, as well as capturing Emily for the first time in here wedding dress.
Barry (the second photographer) met with Billy and his party at the family home, which was great as it helps break the ice with the boys.
The traveled to Channels together in a white cab.
Emily and the bridal party took the very short walk from the lodge to the channels estate.
The ceremony took pace indoors as Billy was concerned they would be too hot outside.
The couple looked great as they exchanged rings before making their first kiss as husband and wife.
After the slightly more formal group photos we had a bit of fun with the wedding party.
Channels installed some amazing ‘LOVE’ letters which we took full advantage of.
Barry (the second photographer) brought along some umbrellas as props, which worked well.
Shortly before the wedding breakfast we took the couple for a short walk around the grounds to get a few images by theirselves
Emily and Billy wanted some confetti thrown before we entered the barn fore the breakfast.
The day finished for us with the cake cutting and first dance and a last photo outside.
