To say I enjoyed shooting Lucy and Jame’s wedding in Canewdon, Essex would be a total understatement. I had the best time as did everyone as it was such a fantastic day.
Lucy and James booked me before they even had a date set and after a few location and date changes they began planning their dream wedding with the ceremony at St Nicholas Church in Canewdon then a stylish marquee reception just down the road in Pagilsham.
There was a lot of running around as I met Lucy at her Mum’s house with four bridesmaids and a flower girl all getting ready. The time seemed to fly and before we all knew it everyone was jumping in the cars on the way to the church where James and all their close family and friends were waiting.
The weather was scorching, not a cloud in the sky all day. This meant the church was lit perfectly and it was a dream to shoot in. There were a few tears throughout the ceremony and a few laughs too as James got a bit eager to say “I do”, I’m sure they will enjoy living that back in the photos and video, great moment!
As everyone came out to the sounds of the church bells we did most of the group shots before confetti and a few shots in the church grounds. Then it was off to the Marquee for a few canapes and pre dinner drinks.
Lucy and James had done a great job with the table decorations and once again light just filled the whole space as the guests relaxed and enjoyed the sunshine.
We waited till after the speeches to do Lucy and James creative shots as I knew the light would be softer as the day went on and it was just perfect as we walked around the surrounding areas. Some of my favourite shots of the season for sure.
After Lucy and James had their first dance as husband and wife the dancefloor filled and I’m sure stayed that way for the rest of the night as I left the happy couple to party the night away.
Thanks so much guys for asking me to capture your wedding. I wish we could do it all again but I’m sure the photos will help to relive the day over and over again.
Well heres your sneak peek, have a great honeymoon!!
