I love September weddings! September is one of my busiest months for wedding photography, perhaps, because we’ve had such stunning weather in recent Septembers. The soft light in the golden hour of a sunny September wedding is one of my favourite things. Lucy and Gary got married in All Saints Church (a really gorgeous church in Stock, Essex) and boy, it was a lovely day. Lucy and her (very gorgeous) bridesmaids got ready at Greenwoods Spa Hotel which is (literally) just down the road from the church. Lucy did a ‘first look’ with her bridesmaids (which I hadn’t seen before this year, but is a really lovely moment) – the gasps and tears as they saw her in her dress for the first time were really lovely (and a great photo opportunity of course). After a beautiful wedding ceremony (where Lucy couldn’t stop grinning, which is always lovely) Lucy and Gary drove off to Crondon Park in a beautiful vintage car.
Crondon Park is a beautiful golf and country club set in stunning countryside in Essex. Gary, Lucy and I had a good explore of the grounds and found several great spots for couple portraits. Whilst the guests were eating in the wedding barn I got to eat my meal al fresco – very civilised! I enjoyed the speeches, especially as I found out that if a) Gary hadn’t got hurt on a night out and b) Lucy didn’t have the same name as Gary’s sister they would probably not have got together (Gary dialled Lucy’s number by mistake – he meant to call his sis)….sweet! It was a really lovely wedding and Lucy and Gary are clearly meant for each other. Congratulations and here’s to your happily ever after!
