Thanks for checking out this post, Crondon Park Wedding Photographer Essex, Becky & Brad. It's been a while since I have written a featured wedding blog post. Since Christmas, I have been working on my new branding and website design, which is now almost complete. I have a backlog of blog posts to write, the first one being about the wedding of Becky and Brad. Below you can find some more information about their day, along with just a handful of my favourite images that I captured.

The Venues

I visited numerous venues on the day, starting at Becky's parent's house for the preparation images. When I arrived it was nice and calm, with the girls well underway with their hair and makeup. I started with the detail images just like I always do, photographing the dress, the shoes, the jewelry, etc. The ceremony itself took place in All Saints Church in Barling. It's a gorgeous little church only minutes away from Becky's parent's home address. I arrived and caught up with Brad and the boys and photographed some formal shots of the groomsmen. Once the ceremony was finished, it was on to the final venue of the day, Crondon Park. It's a venue I have visited numerous times before, and there are so many opportunities to capture gorgeous photographs.

The Weather

We were very lucky on the day, with it staying dry and bright pretty much all day. It wasn't at all too hot, which allowed the guests to enjoy the great grounds available at Crondon Park, and also made the perfect backdrop for Becky and Brad's photographs.

The Couple

Becky and Brad were fantastic to work with. I met them a while back at Kerry and James' wedding at The Lawn. Becky got in touch with me shortly after that wedding to see if I was available to capture their day. I am so glad that she did. It was an absolute pleasure working with them, two truly kind and fantastic people who have since helped me with filming a wedding testimonial for my website.

The Photographs

I captured so many great images on the day, I am going to struggle to show just a few below of my favourites. I really loved the wedding photos we captured in the cornfields that Becky and Brad requested for. It was quite a task for Becky to get into the field in her wedding dress, but in my opinion, totally worth it! See for yourselves below….
