Great Lodge Anne of Cleaves Barn Wedding
If you’ve grown up in the countryside it’s never far from your soul. I loved roaming through the fields as a kid, riding horses and picking berries from the hedgerows. There is something so magical about the English countryside and I love it when my couples feel the same.
Emma and Jake absolutely share that love and it really came across in all the details of their wedding. They used their landrovers to get to around and chose a beautiful venue out in the Essex countryside, surrounded by fields and llamas!! Great Lodge Anne of Cleaves Barn is a real gem of a venue. And I loved all their styling which they put together themselves. Emma had collected loads of vintage items, even starting their own hire business along the way because they’d got so much! And it all looked fantastic. I loved the lightbulbs filled with flowers. And gosh, the beautiful dried flower arrangements from Artisan Dried Flowers were beautiful. So nostalgic, they reminded me of being a child with my mum hording up all the wildflowers for her own arrangements.
Anyway, needless to say this day was absolutely spot on, I mean just have a look through this gallery and you can see what I mean. They are such a wonderful couple and I can never quite believe I get to work with such great people again and again!! Thanks so much guys!
Here’s what Emma had to say about their photos:
“We are so happy we found Jess, after searching through what seemed like thousands of photographers we both agreed she was our favorite. Jess worked magic at our wedding, she had a mix of weather including a heavy downpour and a poorly bride to contend and she took it all in her stride and made us feel super relaxed. Our guests commented on what a lovely person she is and how hard she worked
As for her photographs …. well…. simply beautiful, I didn’t think we could be one of those couples with the perfect pictures all of the photographers put on their portfolios but looking through our pics we feel like we are!
Jess captured all off the special moments we wanted in her own style which we simply love!
YAY Jess!!! you’re a STAR!!! Thank you so much!!!!!”
