Wedding Photography at Gaynes Park in Essex

On Saturday I photographed Laura and James’ wedding day where the ceremony took place at St. Mary-at-Latton Church in Harlow and the wedding reception at Gaynes Park ( near Epping in Essex. It was a beautiful sunny day, blue skies and a slight breeze too!

I arrived at the brides home in time to catch some shots of the hair and make-up. The flowers were arranged by Stacey – Designer Flowers (

After taking a few formal shots of the bridal party in the garden I moved on to catch up with the guys at the church.

It was then time for the wedding ceremony and the brides entrance. The Vicar at St. Mary-at-Latton Church ( was very accommodating and I had the perfect position for photographs throughout.

After the signing I took some formal group shots outside the church and of course the confetti before we all headed to Gaynes Park for the wedding reception.

Gaynes Park is an amazing wedding venue and each time I photograph a wedding there I find something new as a backdrop – see further down this page for photos of an area they call “long walk”. I took lots of casual shots of the drinks reception and then took the large family group photographs.

As time had been quite short before the ceremony I took some shots with the boys.

A little later I took the couple around the grounds for a romantic shoot.

We then headed back for the wedding meal which I must say was fantastic!

After the speeches I headed back outside and took lots of portraits as it was a gorgeous evening.

I then remembered seeing an article a couple of weeks ago on Gaynes Park facebook page which mentioned an area known as “long walk” and asked the couple if they would like to take a look. We didn’t have to go far at all to find some really great backdrops and even a pond. (Since speaking with Liselle at Gaynes Park it turns out that I found a different location, farmers lane… so Long walk will be my quest next time I return to Gaynes Park – I was very happy with the farmers lane)

It was then time for the cutting of the cake and the first dance.

There was a corner of the venue which seemed very popular with the ladies…

Just before it was time to leave I notice a lovely sunset and asked the couple if they would like one last picture.

I had a really fun day with Laura and James, and it was lovely to return to Gaynes Park again.
