Sammy & Will – Captains Wood Barn, The Lodge – Jen JB Photography

In 2018, I had the pleasure of shooting some incredible days. Including this one! And I had a fantastic day shooting Sammy and Wills wedding!


There big day was at The Lodge at Captains Wood Barn in Maldon, and they were married in front of all their family an friends in the surrounding Essex woodland.

The bride and groom opted for a less traditional day, it was still spectacular none the less! The bride wore a 50’s inspired dress, with rainbow coloured converse at the bottom! and the groom went for jeans, with a lovely tweed waist coat, they looked wonderful and totally themselves!

They day then lead me to join the guests on a horse drawn carriage back to the venue! It was superb, and lovely to feel the excitement of the guests. As if this day couldn’t get any better, there was an ice cream van, glitter face painting, a bucking bronco and a bouncy castle! I caught the couple jumping by themselves, it was a great fun moment between them. You could see that this day was entirely there’s and were so happy to have their nearest with them. Lots of the guests got involved with the face painting, the ambience and the room was electric.

I took the bride and groom for a walk around the forest, and caught some lovely moments between them. We then had some pictures with the bridesmaids in their lovely mint vintage style dresses, and the groomsmen rocking their relaxed attire!

The speeches were superb, full of laughter and we even got some words from the bride! I love how these guys strayed from the norm, and truly embraced their love for one another and their newly blended family! It’s always wonderful seeing family, espeically children, come together as one! We also had a dress change from the bride. She came to the evening in a beautiful long gown and crown, and the bride and groom enjoyed their first dance together.

I had an incredible day shooting your wedding Sammy and Will. It was one fantastic surprise after another. I wish you a lifetime of fun and happiness!
