Essex Wedding Photographer – Nikki & Matt’s Down Hall wedding

Down Hall Wedding Photography – Nikki and Matt got married in the beautiful Essex country house hotel, Down Hall.  It was a good old English summer wedding i.e.the weather was terrible – it rained all day, but Nikki and Matt didn’t let this dampen (!) their spirits for a second!  As you can see from the photos, Down Hall is absolutely stunning, and such a brilliant venue for indoors wedding photography.  I always tell couples if they’re worried about the weather not to worry, and that it never rains all day in England…hmm…turns out that (very occasionally!) I’m wrong.  But it really didn’t matter – there was so much love, joy and laughter at this wedding that the weather was irrelevant.

One of the highlights of this wedding was an ice cream van serving ice creams to all the guests during the drinks reception.  Now I love canapes, but fresh Mr Whippy ice creams are even better…especially when served by the bride and groom (I love a bride who’s not too worried about her dress to climb into an ice cream van!).  After the ice cream, the guests entered the dining room (Down Hall has a beautiful huge room which works fantastically for wedding breakfasts) then Nikki and Matt entered to one of the most enthusiastic reactions that I’ve seen in a long time – there was whooping, there was cheering and there was even a bit of dancing.  The touching speeches had me in tears (quelle surprise) – the bride and groom both come from very close families, which always seems to lead to a great party.

Congratulations guys – what a beautiful day, here’s to a lifetime of love and laughter. Bride and groom in ice cream van
