The next wedding to feature on my blog is the marriage of Sian and Andy. They tied the knot at Baddow Park near to Chelmsford. It was a gorgeous day, which you can find out more about below.
Attendance on the day started at Sian’s parent’s house. I had visited their home quite a few years back as they also hosted Sian’s 21st Birthday party which I photographed. We then moved on to Baddow Park. It’s a family run venue based very close to Chelmsford. It was the first time I had visited it, and it did not disappoint.
We had stunning weather on the day. The sun was shining from Start to finish, which allowed us to get all of the photos completed outside all day until late into the evening.
Sian and Andy were awesome to photograph. They were both relaxed in front of the camera, which you can now be seen in the photographs that I captured. If you scroll down you can find out a bit more about their day, as well as Sian & Andy’s answers to a few of my questions.
