Essex Wedding Venue Parklands was the location for my first wedding of 2012 for a lovely couple from Chelmsford called Maxine and Ben. Maxine and Ben had chosen Parklands for its quality of service and the ability to cater for everything under one roof. Added to the fact that it boasts some great interior architecture and fantastic grounds makes this the perfect place for a wedding and Wedding Photography in Essex. On this occasion I was assisted by Claire who has helped me with many weddings now, acting as a second shooter, bag carrier and human stand for reflectors and flash guns etc. I have included some of Claire’s photographs in the gallery below as she has a great eye for minor detail, such as the flowers, shoes and jewelry, most of which were photographed by her. Claire also shot lots of the candid/reportage photographs that go together to make a good record of the wedding day. As you can see from some of the photographs there was the odd patch of snow still on the ground from the previous weeks arctic weather conditions and the lovely fountain and pond in the front garden was partially frozen over. However, despite the cold weather will still managed to get lots of group photographs in front of the main house and the couple were more than happy to explore the many great locations outside and in that go to make up Parklands.
I could not finish a blog post about this ever popular Essex Wedding Venue without mentioning the fantastic food served there. Maxine and Ben were kind enough to treat us to a three course meal which was simply superb. Having tasted food at lots of wedding venues I can testify to the fact that Parklands is certainly one of the best places I have ever had the pleasure to dine at, and the service is second to none. Now to the photography, Maxine and Ben are a great looking couple and were really up for getting some beautiful pictures of their memorable day; below is a selection of my favourites:
