This Notley Abbey wedding is stunning, I really do have the BEST job in the world! I have been so lucky this year to photograph weddings of some special friends. I have known Charlotte since she was a baby, our parents are friends and we spent a lot of our childhoods together although we hadn’t seen each other in years, when she asked me to photograph her wedding I was over the moon. And when she sent me a secret picture of her dress, lets just say this was a wedding I was looking forward to all year!
Notley Abbey was the beautiful and romantic setting for Charlotte & Gareth’s wedding, it allowed them to combine a lovely outdoor ceremony with an elegant reception and grand wedding banquet then a kick ass party. The feel of the day was very chic and classy, Charlotte is a classy kinda gal with impeccable taste and this was truly reflected in the styling of the day. Champagne flowed and canapés were nibbled, and can we just take a moment to appreciate their guests, this was a seriously good-looking wedding crowd!
When I snuck off with Charlotte and Gareth for their photos they were so relaxed and loved up, they just radiated happiness. I just loved how they weren’t afraid to show how much they adored each other, it was a really special time to capture and the amazingly picturesque setting of Notley Abbey made my job easy. Charlotte looked absolutely breathtaking and Gareth couldn’t stop grinning all day!
The speeches were really brilliant and high five to Charlotte for giving a speech too, I love it when the bride has her say too! Hearing John the Father of the bride speak was a trip down memory lane for me and I really enjoyed hearing all about their relationship and romance from Gareth. The evening was absolutely fantastic with an acoustic trio jamming and everyone dancing in the grounds of the Abbey. The saxophonist also provided the tunes for the dance floor, which was completely packed after Charlotte & Gareth’s first dance, I could have partied all night!
Congratulations again to a perfect couple, Mr & Mrs Kristensen
