Kat and Chris’s priority was to spend a day of fun and laughter with their families and close friends. They wanted a fuss free, easy going day of celebrations.
They opted for the Old Parish Rooms in Rayleigh, a wedding venue with a beautiful & bright space with a mezzanine at the sides (ideal for photographers wishing to be more discreet whilst shooting yet be within close distance to guests).
As there was no more than 20+ guests for the actual ceremony, guests were set up at the top, whilst the downstairs provided the area to serve canapés, drinks and later on the meal. A few more guests joined the happy couple in the evening for drinks and chats at the bar.
The outside area of this venue set within the church grounds offers lovely and easy backgrounds for group shots and confetti enthusiasts.
Despite a little delay of the bride and her squad due to traffic (a rather common issue which myself and my assistant are no longer phased by and adapt to easily) , it was an absolute joy capturing Kat & Chris’s special day.
Not one wedding we photograph resemble the other and that is the beauty of the job. We are mixing with a lot of individuals, we are expected to manage peoples emotions and provide solutions. We feel privileged to be part of such an intimate moment in a couples life. We take each assignment very lovingly and with great care.
Wishing Kat & Chris a lifetime of happiness. Can’t wait to hear about the new chapter…
