Marie & James ~ Essex Wedding Photographer at Ingatestone Church

Taking you back to this beautiful English countryside Wedding  <3

Marie & James were married on what can be argued as the hottest day of 2017!

The wedding took place at St Edmund and St Mary’s Church in Ingatestone; a unique centre-piece to the small village on the outskirts of Chelmsford. This beautiful Church was also where the couple chose to have their Engagement shoot back in January and boasts lovely grounds out the back as well overlooking the village centre.

Marie was delivered to the Church in a beautiful old Rover whilst the public lined the pavements of the small village of Ingatestone to take photos and offer kind words before she walked down the aisle. After the ceremony we headed to James’ parents home in St Osyth for a beautiful garden Reception with a stunning decorated marquee complete with hanging paper lanterns, trees & plants, all matching in the perfect pink that the bridal party & groomsmen were fashioning. I just love how they’d incorporated the countryside look inside with such tasteful decor!!

James’ Mum had gone to a huge amount of effort to ensure that her gardens were spectacular and they didn’t disappoint, everything looked stunning and was in full bloom on what could only be argued as one of the hottest days of the year! The speeches were fantastic and the food was amazing, and before long it was time for the First Dance.

James and Marie had opted for a live band to perform and they were awesome! They twirled around one another before dragging the rest of the guests onto the floor to party the night away! 💃🏼 💃🏼 💃🏼

Congratulating these guys on such a beautiful Wedding! Thank you for having me capture your special day 😊

Laura & Paul ~ Engagement Photos at Hylands Park

When Laura & Paul booked their Wedding Photography with me, we had a great chat and found that we actually shared quite a lot in common especially a great love for our four legged friends. Paul explained that Laura was quite upset that Penny & Woody wouldn’t be able to attend their wedding at Baddow Park in September, so after hearing this I explained that included within their package was an Engagement Shoot, so why not bring the doggies along and we can make an afternoon of it at the park!

I caught up with these guys in Hylands Park, Chelmsford for their pre wedding shoot with Penny & Woody tagging along aswell. The only times I have been here are to watch the good ol’ V Festival which takes part every year, and also back in the day when I did a bit of cross country running for my school team…we’re talking around 16 years ago now not something you’d catch me doing on my weekend off!!

To witness this location in it’s natural beauty is lovely. It stretches on for miles with plenty of grassland, trees, blossom and even a pond – although we avoided this for the sake of the dogs getting wet 😉

Laura & Paul chose this area for their pre wedding shoot as it’s a popular walking spot they enjoy with Penny & Woody and although a little hot, I think the dogs actually quite enjoyed the camera…they certainly enjoyed the treats that came with it! Laura dotes on these two and who can blame her – I love it when any pets come and join in on a shoot!

My thanks to these guys for being great! Bring on September!

Marie & James ~ Engagement Photos at Ingatestone Park

Last weekend I was out for my first Engagement shoot of 2017! Although not a necessity for a wedding – I love getting to meet my couples again, and chatting about how plans are going for their wedding and generally having some fun with them!


We headed up to Ingatestone Church which is where Marie & James will be tying the knot in June. For anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure of walking or driving past this beauty, the Church is set right in the heart of Ingatestone High Street on a slight hill, watching down on the bustling road below.

Marie & James are both from farming backgrounds and were keen to bring along their wellies, and use the rural backdrop of farm land which is set beyond the church and stretches out for miles.

Being January it was a bit of a risk, but on having the wedding date set for a Summer, a Winter Engagement shoot seemed like a great idea to get a different contrast of photos to treasure. We did have a threat of rain as I left home for Ingatestone but luckily this bypassed our location and we even managed a little sunshine through the clouds which photographed perfectly.

My thanks to Marie & James for booking; I am so excited to be back here with you in June!
