It’s been a few months since I have visited this venue, so I was looking forward to shooting these Gaynes Park wedding images with the delightful and far too good looking Michael and Jess.
The Ceremony – Gaynes Park wedding images
This has to be one of the nicest Essex churches that I have photographed a wedding at. All Saints and St Giles in Nazeing. A typical English village church with great grounds and a super nice minister. I have worked there before when I photographed Jason and Katherines wedding day.
The guests arrived on classic red London buses. Michael looking uber cool in black tie. Jess kept him waiting just a little while – always a good test of the nerves 🙂
I was at the front of the church alongside my preffered wedding film making duo – Steve and Jenny of Unique Visuals Their work is just so classic and stylish. We always gel very well as a team as we both have a similar approach and just get on with capturing great footage that expresses the true emotion of the day.
After the ceremony and a some photography at this stunning Essex church, the guest took the buses to Gaynes Park.
Gaynes Park garden in the sunshine. It’s a wonderful setting for an Essex wedding. Everytime I work there the garden just looks different and more mature. Mike and Jess had clearly put a lot of thought into their wedding. The attention to detail flowing into the Barn table settings.
I did my normal good weather wedding day plan. Priority to creating some artistic and modern groupshots with help of a superb toastmaster – Steve Warwick. Then, some wedding portraits of the couple in the soft and warm evening light. The plan worked a treat and it was a cracker of an evening.
Everytime I shoot some Gaynes Park wedding images I try to come away with something different. A shot that I have never tried before. The Coach House looked good bathed in warm evening light, so with some extra lighting, it made a strong location for a creative portrait of Michael and Jess – one of my favourite Gaynes Park wedding images from their day.
A really fun day with some great people. Congratulations Michael and Jess. My best wishes for many many years overflowing with happiness together.
