Yesterday was my final wedding of the year and it took place at the Fennes, Bocking near Braintree in Essex. The wedding was for a lovely couple, Jo and Neale and I was working alongside Steve again capturing a less informal coverage and the expression of the day. Unfortunately you cannot guarantee the weather at any time of the year, less so in the Winter months, and it was an extremely wet, windy and wintery day, so we made the most of the interior at the Fennes.


The Fennes is a great wedding venue and I imagine on a dry summer’s day its full potential becomes very much apparent. We arrived nice and early so that we could have a good look around the venue and seek out suitable locations for photographs. The venue had a real Christmas atmosphere about it.

I took some shots of the Groom and the boys before the wedding using some of the great rooms at the venue, and the lighting gave a very warm atmosphere.


The ceremony took place in one of the two large marquee’s at the Fennes and really did make a nice setting.

After the ceremony we were able to capture a few shots around the venue.


We even managed to get outside for a couple of shots as there was a very short break in the weather. I was very pleased about this as it meant we could use the bridge and the pond, before returning back to the warmth for some wedding drinks.

It was then time for the formal group shots and I was concentrating on capturing the more informal moments, although for some it was definitely nap time.

It wouldn’t be a wedding without some confetti!


As with all our weddings we captured the speeches, also set up a small area for family portraits which all add to the bride and grooms collection, and then of course the traditional first dance.

I really had fun at Jo and Neale’s wedding and they seemed to enjoy our presence throughout their special day. If you would like me to photograph your wedding then please get in touch.
