Bank Holiday Friday was the wedding of Lucy and Marcus. I’ve known them both for a few years now, as well as many of their family members and friends. As always with my weddings, I was continuously checking the forecast in the week leading up to it. April is sometimes a little unpredictable, so I was monitoring it quite closely! Finally when the day arrived…so did the sunshine!
The morning started with a very calm Lucy getting ready in one of the beautiful rooms available upstairs at Wherstead Park with hair and make-up by Annoshka from Caramel Browne in Colchester. Even the little bridesmaid Zara had her hair done, and having already taken photos of her last year, she was the perfect little model in the morning as well as throughout the day!
A rather nervous Marcus and his best man Paul arrived at the venue, with Marcus’ phone being confiscated and a strong restriction placed on the use of his camera!
The ceremony was held on the magnificently grand stairway at Wherstead Park. I love the bright light, the beautiful ceiling and the images that came from being able to move around and capture them both reading their vows. This venue definitely has the ‘wow factor’, and the huge atrium was just perfect for the awesome band they had for the evening entertainment – The Talent. If you haven’t seen or heard of these guys before, then I would recommend checking them out!
The day was made extra special by Lucy and Marcus announcing that they are expecting a baby later in the year! Thank you to you both for such a great day, it was lovely to see all your friends and family again. Huge congratulations – and I hope you had a fantastic day and have a perfect future together!!
Love Helen x
