At the end of October I was lucky to be back at The Coach House at Marks Hall in Coggeshall, Essex to photograph Tom and Elena's stunning wedding.
Elena'a gorgeous dress was from Bird's Bridal in Chelmsford. I loved the colour of the bridesmaid's dresses too - a gorgeous cornflower blue!
I absolutely loved the bouquets, from Rachel Dampier Floral Design - the colours were stunning and were a gorgeous theme throughout the day, as well as contrasting beautifully with the autumn leaves.
I then headed off to Marks Hall to meet up with Tom and his best men before the ceremony. I went to school with Tom so it was lovely to be there to photograph his and Elena's day, and to see some friends at the wedding.
The ceremony room looked incredible, with a curtain of fairy lights across the ceiling, more of the gorgeous flowers, and pom-poms that really set it off. There was such a lovely warmth to the ceremony and wonderful readings too.
Elena and Tom were then very kind to let me take them for a walk to take some portraits of the two of them. I finally got to use the bridal umbrella I've had on standby too as sadly it was a bit on the damp side. As we know from their pre-wedding photographs though, that just makes the colours really lush, and with the autumn leaves looking incredible it gave us some gorgeous backdrops!
The guests all then headed back into the barn which had been transformed into a stunning dinning hall, where they enjoyed a delicious three-course meal by Limeberry Catering.
Elena and Tom's gorgeous cake was made by The Sugar and Spice Cake Company, and after they cut it they headed to the dance floor for their first dance, followed by a great DJ set from Paddy from Disco Wed in his incredible Disco Shed, which sounded as good as it looked!
It was really lovely to work with everyone on such a beautiful day! Thank you so much to everyone, and to Elena and Tom for asking me to photograph their day.
