Greenwoods Hotel & Spa
In June of 2016 I Photographed the wedding of Amy and Russell at Greenwoods Hotel & Spa, Stock, near Chelmsford in Essex. This is a fantastic Essex Wedding Venue with beautiful rooms and lovely gardens. Amy and Russell were married in the lovely gardens at Greenwoods Hotel in their delightful Garden Gazebo surrounded by their family and friends.
The day started off with photographs of the bridal preparations as Amy, her bridesmaid and flower girl (sister and niece) got ready in one of the many lovely bedrooms at Greenwoods, which are all spacious and full of light. Wedding details are always very important, so I photographed the wedding dress, flowers and brides’ shoes etc, all things that go into the wedding album to help document the wedding day. The boys were not to be left out so before they went for their pre-wedding pint in the pub across the road, I got a few pictures of Russell and his two best men outside in the garden.
Before long, it was time for the wedding ceremony, and I took the chance to photograph stills and some time-lapse photographs on one of my spare cameras. As can be seem from the pictures the ceremony was a lovely occasion full of love and happy emotions. After the wedding the couple joined their family and friends on the large patio at the rear of Greenwoods for some nice refreshments and canapés. I then set about photographing all the formal group photographs in the privacy of the lovely sunken garden complete with pond and elegant fountain.
After the wedding breakfast and superb speeches, I took Amy and Russell for a wander round the extensive well-manicured gardens for some photographs of them alone. By then the sun had come out and we were treated to some lovely early evening light. I have featured many of the images from this part of the day in the slideshow below and they really show much the couple are in love. Finally, for me, it was time for the cake cutting and first dance. This was a fantastic wedding for a truly lovely couple, and I could have gone on for hours photographing them.
