Just over a week ago I was back at The Reid Rooms in Essex, a charming wedding venue set in the Countryside for Laura and Will’s wedding. I arrived bright and early to capture some of the preparations, during which it became clear just how much effort had been made, the details, flowers, table displays and finishing touches were simply beautiful! The vintage touch really worked well at this venue. So everyone was in great spirits and very relaxed:)They had a great gathering of 123 guests, each of which made me feel welcome so it was a pleasure to be a part of and photograph! I have to say the ceremony was lovely, as were the speeches, full of emotion and laughter, such a great couple. We took 15 mins to take some portraits around the grounds and we even managed to get out for 5 minutes later for an evening shot by the water.

So here are just  a few of my favourites from the day, Big thanks to Will and Laura for having me along. Feel free to leave a comment below in the comment section:)

Tim and Charlotte will be getting married in September so we met up at High Beach for their pre wedding session and go through their plans. The weather was certainly better than my last visit there! All my wedding clients have these sessions as I find it really helps on the day as it means they have already worked with me and know how it works. As a bonus one of these images gets chosen to be printed and presented as a signing board for their guests to sign!

Anni and Gary were married at The Reid Rooms a short while ago and had me along to photograph it for them, starting in the morning I captured some of the preparations before catching up with the guys. They both wanted it to be a relaxed day with close family and friends and they achieved just that. After the ceremony everyone enjoyed an afternoon tea which included a beautiful spread of cakes! And surprisingly we dodged the rain too, result! We even managed to grab this shot above by the water even if they had to battle high winds to do so! Worth the effort though I say.

Here are a few images from their day!

Down Hall Wedding Photos by Matt Heath Photography-039On Saturday I had the pleasure of returning to Down Hall Country House to photograph the wedding of Hayley and Dom on what was yet another hot day! Not complaining mind, it was beautiful:)I started the day with Hayley and her bridesmaids whilst they were making preparations and having hair and make up done, I have to say it was all rather calm…. perfect! The ceremony was beautiful with some lovely readings which was followed by a steel band! The glorious weather meant everyone got to enjoy the sun for the reception drinks and of course made it easy for the group photos on the lawn! We of course had a wonder around the grounds for some portraits and were lucky enough to have a great sky which was perfect for my more dramatic portrait as seen above. A superb meal put on by the Down Hall team was followed by fantastic speeches and they even had the Chocolate Buffet Company putting on a spread for the evening! Looked amazing! The day was perfectly kept on track by Mark GreatBatch their toastmaster, who I highly recommend, he really goes to every length to ensure his bride and grooms have the perfect day and proved to be a great help. They both clearly had the time of their lives!

I had a lovely day photographing Hayley and Dom’s wedding, an absolute pleasure,  if you are planning a wedding at Down Hall or anywhere else, please get in touch via the contact page
