The Lawn Weddings are very popular and last winter I photographed the wedding of Sam and Luke at this very nice Essex Wedding Venue. The Lawn is perfect for weddings and wedding receptions with some fantastic rooms and grounds. The staff at this family run business are extremely helpful and experienced and the food is second to none.
My day started off by photographing Sam and her many bridesmaids as they got ready for the big day. From there I travelled the short distance to the lovely little church where Sam’s parents were were also married, Saint Andrews Church, Shoeburyness, suffice it to say I didn’t photograph that wedding. At the church there was just enough time to get a few shots of Luke, his best man and the ushers before the bridal party arrived.
After the lovely wedding service everyone returned to The Lawn, the couple in the fantastic Rolls Royce Wedding Car and the wedding party on a double decker bus. The weather that day was a little cold and blustery so we kept the formal photographs at the church to a minimum and as can be seen from the photographs below I did the big group photograph inside The Lwan from the upstairs balcony overlooking the Grand Hall.
No matter what the weather conditions The Lawn has plenty of space inside for some lovely wedding photography. Sam and Luke were brave enough to split their photographs between the outside grounds and the inside rooms. The couple held their wedding breakfast in the marvelous orangery which was splendidly prepared for the many family and friends attending the wedding. The speeches were very funny with the couple at one point dressed as ventriloquist dummies Nina Conti style.
My last job of the day was to photograph the first dance, where Sam and Luke looked fantastic on the dance floor. This was a very fun wedding for a lovely couple and I thoroughly enjoyed my day photographing this superb winter wedding.
