The wedding of Laura and Dave Stephens, well the sun was shining from start to finish, what an absolutely stunning day!
The Bridal prep began at the Marriott Hotel, Waltham Abbey, when I arrived hair and make up were in full swing. Laura was positively glowing, with the excitement of the day looming emotions were running high.
After documenting the bridal preparations with all the girls and mum and dad getting ready, I made my way to Gaynes Park, where the ceremony, and reception were to be held.
On arrival I met Dave, Ralphie and Sydney. We gathered the ushers and best men to do some shots of all the boys, together with Dave’s mum and dad, In the courtyard area, where the bridal suite is situated.
I must say Gaynes is one of my favourite venues, the gardens and setting are exquisite with so many beautiful areas for photos its hard to choose where to go next!
After guests had gathered in the Orangery, we eagerly anticipated the arrival of Laura and her bridesmaids, Laura would be getting into her dress at Gaynes Park in the cottage. There was traffic on the way and Laura was in a rush, on arrival she got into her dress as quick as she could.
When everyone was ready we made our way to the bottom of the garden, the weather was stunning, emotions were high as the page boys, bridesmaids and Laura and her dad, made there way down the long walk to the Orangery.
After the ceremony I took Laura and Dave off for a few shots alone in the gardens as everyone got settled with there drinks and canapés.
When we returned we started the group shots and finished then with the all important confetti shot .
After dinner, we ceased the opportunity to get some lovely shots before dusk drew in, I love this time of day was a lovely warm summers evening.
The evening started with a beautiful first dance from Laura and Dave, after cutting their cake.
It was an absolutely stunning day, it was an absolute honour to be able to document the day for the new Mr and Mrs Stephens.
