July saw another Wedding but a brand new venue for me. Shelly & Graeme had chosen the Ivy Hill Hotel (Best Western) in Margaretting, Chelmsford Essex as their Wedding Venue.
I arrived for the bridal preparations taking some candid shots of the bride and her gorgeous bridesmaids getting ready. Shelly surprised her bridesmaids with matching bracelets.
The ceremony matched the couples personality, fun and bright. There was lots of laughter and a beautiful, funny poem read by one of the handsome page boys.
The guests had a lovely drinks reception and canapes after the ceremony. Ivy Hill Hotel has beautiful gardens which allowed us to capture some lovely couple images as well as the group shots.
I loved the table decorations simple, elegant and classy. Speeches are always one of my favourite parts of the day and it was lovely to see the brides mum stand up to do a speech.
The first dance continued with the theme of the day… lots of smiles and laughter. I managed to capture a beautiful moment of the groom kissing his new wife’s baby bump during their first dance, precious moments!
Thank you Shelly & Graeme for asking me to photograph your wedding day. I had great fun. Congratulations and sending you all the best for the rest of the pregnancy.
Below are a few of the images of the day.
