The Lawn Weddings, Alison and David
Earlier this year I photographed the wedding of Alison and David at The Lawn, Rochford, Essex. This was the first time I have photographed a wedding at The Lawn having only previously photographing a social event there. The Lawn is a great wedding venue and the staff are well versed at running such events.
As can be seen from the photographs this was a very wintery day with lots of snow on the ground. Luckily the main roads were all clear and everyone managed to get there for Alison and David’s big day. Alison prepared for the wedding in the brides room at The Lawn, which is very spacious and light, just perfect for the make up artist and hairdresser. David arrived early ready for me to take a few photographs as he nervously waited to get married.
The reception rooms at The lawn are very large and full of natural light which is great for wedding photographs. The ceremony was a beautiful occasion full of love and emotion, hopefully some of which I have capture in the pictures. After the ceremony there was time for a few drinks and canapes before we all ventured outside for some formal group photographs. I kept this session short due to the cold conditions. However, Alison and David were up for more photographs and we ventured out into the garden and snow, which in places was four inches deep.
It was not long before it began to get dark and time for the wedding breakfast on the Orangery extension, which as can be seen is very light and airy. Alison and David were kind enough to pay for a meal, so I can vouch for the fact that the food at The Lawn is very good. After the wedding breakfast it was time for the speeches and cake cutting.
As with all winter weddings it gets dark relatively early, but this never deters me from taking photographs. Despite the freezing conditions Alison and David were very brave and went outside again for some more photographs by the frozen fountain. I think we managed about twenty minutes before the cold became too much for us all.
Finally it was time for the first dance, always something I like to photograph. Alison and David are a lovely couple and I cannot thank them enough for choosing me to photograph their wedding day.
