Sian and Chris were originally going to get married down in Surrey at Northbrook Park but the venue changed to the beautiful Gosfield Hall near Braintree in Essex which is somewhere I hadn’t photographer before. As usually I planned everything in terms of travelling distances and timings and picked my assistant Lindy up en route in Epping and at that time had 90 minutes to cover a journey that should have been only 30 minutes up the M11. Lucky I had left lots of time as there was an accident on the M11 leaving the traffic stationary and me stuck 11 miles from my turn-off. I sat and watch my sa nav tick by showing I was going to arrive close and closer to the shooting start time. I have to admit to a minor panic as the traffic was going nowhere and people were getting out of their cars and walking around………luckily the traffic started to move and I arrived just 5 minutes after I said I would be there which still gave loads of time before the ceremony for the bride and groom shots. Still I think I lost a few pounds in stress on the way there!!!
Anyway the wedding was absolutely beautiful, Gosfield Hall is an amazing venue with stunning grounds surrounded by wheat fields and the weather was kind to us despite threatening to rain all day!
Sian looked stunning in her beautifully fitted gown and I had great fun getting some lovely signature shots as well as some great photojournalism moments where the rain (just!) held off.
I hope I get the chance to photograph another wedding there as it is a really special venue and the bedrooms I saw were just to die for!
