Friern Manor Weddings – Tara and Deelan
Friern Manor Weddings seem to be very popular and rightly so as it’s a fantastic Essex Wedding Venue. This was my first time at Friern Manor so I was anxious to do a good job for Tara and Deelan, especially as their wedding had been rescheduled from last year due to a serious road accident suffered by Deelan. It was great to see Deelan almost fully recovered and looking so well.
The day started off with photographs of the bridal preparations, always a fun time to capture. Tara, who looked beautiful, did her own makeup and was ably assisted by her three lovely bridesmaids. So then it was time for the wedding ceremony just a short walk away from the Manor House to the Coaching Stables & Garden Room.
The ceremony was a beautiful affair full of love and romance perfectly befitting the occasion. After the wedding ceremony there was time for a little wonder around the venue to get some photographs of the newly weds on there own. The weather that day was perfect and Friern Manor has lots of lovely backdrops which are just great for wedding photography.
After the formal group photographs were completed it was time for the receiving line and wedding breakfast. The staff at Friern Manor are very professional and everything runs perfectly to time with no hassle or panic. Tara and Deelan were very kind to have treated me to a three course meal, which was absolutely superb. Then after the meal it was time for the speeches, which on this occasion where especially poignant and tear jerking. After the wedding breakfast and speeches there was just enough time before dusk for a few more photographs of the happy couple in the well manicured gardens. Finally it was time for the cake cutting and first dance.
It’s a fantastic privilege to photograph someones wedding and this one was very special for me and one that I will remember for a long time. To see Deelan marry Tara after at one point being told he may not survive his accident was just fantastic. Below are a few of my favourite photographs from Tara and Deelan’s big day.
