Mark & Emma at Langtons, Hornchurch, Essex 2019
Wedding Photographer wanted. Emma and Marks mission was to find a Wedding Photographer after having two previous cancel due to personal difficulties. Third time lucky (a little tongue in cheek laugh). As I explained to the lovely couple that from the time of booking and beyond a friendship is born. I can safely say that, two years on we remain friends to this day. Our first meeting was at Langtons House with some of their family and friends. We all hit it off straight away and having spent time on the phone to Emma, I knew this was going to be fabulous day. It is important to me that my couples feel they have a friend taking photos rather than a stranger.
Closer to the wedding, I spent a lovely evening with them both to narrow down the itinerary for their special day. As my collections include an album they also chose the colour. Which after seeing the array available, they decided to opt for the classic white. This was presented to them after they had chosen their photos in a matching box with their favourite photo laminated on top, which gives it a real personal touch.
The Bridal Prep photos were taken at Marks mums house, which was a hive of activity. I do love this part of the day, hair, makeup, dresses and lots of laughs. It was then onto Langtons Orangery to tie the knot. Wow what a perfect spot to say I do. The sun was beaming in through the walls of glass and the plants made it feel very tropical. I felt like a great explorer taking pictures through the greenery. As the wedding was later in the day the sun, although still strong, was at the perfect height for the photos. With everything Mark & Emma had been through in the lead up to their big day the sun definitely shone on the righteous.
Off to the Sports club for their buffet reception. Almost from the start the guests were dancing. They really made me feel like part of their family, a day I will never forget. So honoured to know these two and be their Wedding Photographer on their special day.
