Priory Park Wedding Photography

The next wedding to feature on my blog is the marriage of Cat and Andy.

They tied the knot at Priory Park in Southend on Sea. It was the first time I had ever photographed a wedding in there, and I have to admit I loved the venue. The hall was a gorgeous space to photograph in, and the gardens were just simply perfect for the photographs afterwards. I can not wait to get my next booking there!

Once the ceremony and photos were complete, we made our way back to the Angel Pub in Shoebury for the evening reception. It was a really relaxed day, and I got some lovely photos of everyone enjoying the day and having a great time! The staff were super friendly, and the food was outstanding (perks of the job)!

I was with them right through to the cake cutting, first dance and some of the evening celebrations! A perfect way to tie up the story to a perfect day!

Below you can find out more about their big day and also see some of the photographs that I captured! Please feel free to leave a comment below with your thoughts on the photographs. I always love to hear what you think of my latest work!
