Roslin Beach Hotel, Southend

Lawns, Rochford, Essex Wedding photos

The Lawn, Rochford …

The Lawn, Rochford, Essex … The Lawn, Rochford in Essex played host to the Wedding of Amy & Jamie Meek. Winds strongly blustered through Essex, which left me rather windswept upon my arrival at The Lawns, Rochford. Hurricane weather conditions could still not spoil the beauty of this excellent Essex venue. Introductions to the bridal party and venue, then it was off to work. Amy & Jamie had chosen our “Duo of Golds” package so the lovely Emily started the filming while I set up for photography. Two photographers came with this package and some miles away, 2nd shooter Ben was starting his day with the groomsmen. Laughter is the first word that comes to mind when I think back to […]

Ye Old Plough House   Ye Old Plough House in Balphan, Essex was host to the Wedding of Amanda and Grant Day. Our brief was to include all of their friends and family and to let the fun of the day show through in lots of lighthearted and natural wedding photos.
