The next wedding to feature on my blog is also a wedding photographed at The Lawn. This time the marriage of Elizabeth and Andrew who tied the knot at this gorgeous venue! This is probably the wedding venue in Essex that I visit the most which is really handy as it’s located around 10 minutes away from my office.
I have been photographing weddings at The Lawn for over 12 years now, and I have a fantastic working relationship with the staff down there. I spent the whole day with Elizabeth and Andrew, from the bridal preparations right through until the first dance and a little later.
Below you can find out a little more detail about their big day, as well as be able to view some of the images that I captured. They had a Harry Potter themed wedding, with some really cute and quirky twists to their day!
