Kelly & Trevor at Little Easton Manor
When I first met Kelly, I knew her wedding was going to be fun, quirky and full of creativity! We also found a special bond through music and when she blasted the tunes at her wedding party I couldn’t help myself but join in a little!
I photographed Kelly’s bridal preparation at Little Easton Manor in Dunmow, Essex. The bridal suite is perfect to get ready in and has beautiful natural light.
Her dress and vowel was hanging all ready for Kelly to step into after she had her hair and make up complete.
I do love the bridal preparation stages because there is an abundance of nerves, butterflies and excitement in the morning and capturing that is beautiful. Everything is innocent and soft and you can see the anticipation in the photographs.
Mel from Enchanted Bridal Boutique came and helped Kelly get into her dress and ensure everything was perfect for her. One button at a time, it made everything feel more real and time then starts to fly by.
Kelly had a car awaiting for her downstairs to meet her husband to be Trevor at the alter in the local church.
Once Kelly, her bridesmaid and flower girl were all ready, it was time to steal them for some portrait photographs before she met her dad at the car outside the manor.
After Kelly’s portrait photographs, she met her dad outside who was so taken back by the way his daughter looked, he was so proud and emotional.
It was such a lovely moment to capture, the children also came out to meet their grandad at the car.
It was time to make their way to the church to meet Trevor and the wedding party to say their vows and make their promises to each other.
While the bridal party were travelling to the church, I made my way there before Kelly would arrive. I arrived at the church to meet Trevor and their two sons who were the best men! This was the cutest! All the guests were seated and I got some photographs of everyone waiting nervously with excitement.
The ceremony was beautiful and couldn’t have gone better. Romantic and relaxed. It was so lovely to see the children involved too! Once Kelly and Trevor had sealed the deal with a kiss , it was time for the guests to congratulate them and then head back to Little Easton Manor for the rest of the celebrations.
It was time to take Kelly and Trevor off to have their couple photos! I was looking forward to this all day because they are just so funny and I knew it was going to be easy to get them to fall in love all over again in front of the camera.
What a beautiful couple session!!! Now lets get onto the party because they had a special guest called Beryl waiting for them!
Hats off to Emma Fitch who owns Book A Buffet for serving up the most delicious hog roast ever! That crackling was so good! I am dreaming about it now. All the guests loved it and came up for seconds and thirds.
Let’s not forget about the amazing decor at Little Easton Manor by Elegant Events By Denise and Kelly herself! Did you know that Kelly even made the wedding cakes! They were amazing, so talented.
As the sun was closing in, I took Kelly and Trevor outside for one last couple shot with the sun behind them and it was super dreamy!
After that the party was in full swing! Cutting the delicious cake, the first dance and then Kelly finally got to blast out the tunes and I confess I had a little dance too! After all we shared a love of music on the first meeting.
