A Marquee wedding in Essex
This was exactly how a marquee wedding in Essex should be done. Will and Amy not only had the best day with fantastic guests but the weather could not have been kinder for them.
I started with Amy and the girls getting ready at home before meeting Will in his local pub in Halstead.
Arriving at the pub for pictures, the lads looked great in their blue suits and I particularly liked the personalised details inside Will’s collar.
The minister at their local church was very accommodating and allowed discreet photography during the service. This is refreshing attitude that makes for some great natural, unobtrusive pictures.
Rather than spend long at the church we took a few brief pictures in the grounds. Then we headed off to the reception.
The marquee reception took place at a fabulous marquee in the garden at Will’s sisters house.
Hay bales and huge ‘LOVE’ letters made a great backdrop for some funky pictures with friends and family. The garden backed onto to cornfield which was absolutely stunning.
Especially memorable was the fantastic surprise of a fly past. This finished with a loop the loop that (almost) made a heart-shape out of the smoke.
Later, they entered the marquee to the biggest cheer I have heard in ages. The speeches were totally uprorious.
The light in the evening was simply stunning and made for some beautiful natural portraits of the happy couple.
During the first dance a confetti canon was fired showering the marquee with a fabulous photographic opportunity.
Looking back, I cannot believe how fortunate we are with the sky in the evening.
I love creating my signature ‘silhouette’ images and the nights sky was just perfect.
As marquee weddings go this will take some beating. I look forward to seeing Will ad Amy in the future at their friend’s weddings. If they are half as much fun as this one they will be a riot!
