Blake Hall Weddings
Blake Hall Weddings are very popular and last October I photographed the wedding of Samantha and Adam at this fantastic Essex Wedding Venue. Unfortunately the weather that day was not good, as it simply pored down with rain all day. Never the less, despite the wet weather, it could not dampen the spirits of this lovely couple who, as can be seen from the photographs, are so very much in love.
The day started off with photographs in The Old Coach House where Samantha and her bridesmaids prepared for the big day. This was a real fun time and I really enjoyed capturing the atmosphere in pictures as Samantha, her helpers and family enjoyed a few glasses of bubbly. Samantha had come well prepared for the wet weather with a very stylish pair of wellington boots, which to my surprised, she posed in wearing nothing but her underwear.
Before the ceremony I managed to capture a few shots of Adam as her nervously waited with his best man, Mum & Dad and friends for his bride to be. Despite the inclement weather Blake Hall were well prepared and supplied the bridal party with large white umbrellas for the short walk from the coach house to the converted barn for the wedding ceremony.
The beautifully restored 17th century barn at Blake Hall is a fantastic setting for a wedding or function. Samantha and Adam had originally planned to get married outside but the weather meant that was impossible. It also meant I had to do all the formal photographs within the confines of the barn. Luckily no matter what the weather I always take studio lights for such circumstances and on this occasion made good use of them. As can be seen from the photographs we did manage to get a few shots outside with just the happy couple, but sadly those were few and far between.
This was my first visit to Blake Hall but I really hope I get to go back there again soon on a brighter day. If you are looking for an Essex Wedding Photographer please go to my main website for more details of my wedding photography prices and whether I might be the photographer for you.
