It’s always an unbelievable honor when you get asked by someone in the wedding industry to photograph their day. Heather is a super talented veil designer, based here in Essex (Sash and Veil) so I was over the moon when she asked if I’d photograph for her and Kevin. As soon as I met these two, I knew their day would be laid back and quirky and it didn’t disappoint!
Their day was totally unique to them. They got married at their local church and then went onto party at the Sailing club which has an amazing view over the estuary. A spot which they both love and I can see why. The sailing club was a great setting for the reception too. I love seeing how couples will transform quirky venues into something special for their wedding. Rock The Day Styling was on hand to help make the everything look spot on, she did an amazing job of transforming the hall. And of course, my favourites, The Country Garden Flower Company made everything extra special with their devine locally grown flowers.
The party was something else, one of my favourites from this year (they even managed to set the fire alarm off with their raucous behaviour ;)) I have serious love for their band who really knew how to get everyone dancing.
Here’s what Heather had to say about their photos: “I can’t recommend Jess highly enough! I first contacted her initially as I loved her slightly quirky style which was very “us”. We met Jess to discuss our wedding photography and we both took to her immediately. She is warm, friendly and bursting with ideas and enthusiasm – we booked her the very next day before anyone else did! On the day, Jess arrived early and took the prep photos – she was very calming as I was extremely nervous and for someone who absolutely hates having their photo taken, I became quite comfortable . Many guests remarked they didn’t even notice Jess taking photos which is surely the mark of a great photographer. When we received the gallery a few weeks after our wedding we were overwhelmed – the photos were amazing, I would thoroughly recommend Jess – she’s given us the very best mementos from our very special day.”
