Greenwoods Hotel Wedding

Louise and Joe's wedding was a brilliant fun-filled day, a fantastic celebration, and it took place at the award-winning Greenwoods Hotel in Essex. I’ve worked at this venue a few times now, and it never disappoints; a wonderful setting and brilliant, helpful staff make for a good day.

I first met with Louise and Joe a couple of years ago on a pre-wedding portrait shoot. We instantly hit it off and felt comfortable with each other within minutes. The pre-wedding shoots I offer are a great way to break the ice and get to know each other quickly. We spent an hour in and around Norsey Wood, laughing and chatting about their wedding plans and creating some fun photos along the way.

They hadn't chosen their wedding photographer at the time, but I was hoping they would contact me in the future and was over the moon when they did!

The wedding took place in the summer, and they dreamed of having an outdoor ceremony. On the morning of the wedding we were expecting rain, and things were not looking good. Thankfully the rain storms passed around Stock, and we were treated to fantastic sunshine for most of the day, so an outdoors ceremony it was.

The outdoor ceremony took place in the beautiful Garden Gazebo tucked away in the hotel's grounds. There is a magical feeling around the ornamental gardens and walkways; it's a beautiful setting.

The day was very relaxed from my point of view, I had a minimal amount of formal group shots to shoot, and other than those, I had free reign to do as I pleased on the day. Just the way I like it.

After the ceremony, the pace of the day seemed to quicken, and we were celebrating and dancing in the Garden Suite before we knew it. Everyone had great fun, let their hair down and partied with Louise and Joe long into the night. An absolutely fantastic wedding day; thank you for having me along and sharing it with me.
