Gaynes Park wedding photography: Jenni and Scott


The start of another very busy weekend for me, but, hey…the suns shining.

Jenni and the girls got ready in Woodford, with the help of ace hair stylist Tara Johnston. The church was just a short drive away in High Beach, Loughton. Set in Epping forest and bathed in warm sunlight, it was the perfect setting for Jenni and Scott.

After the service it was off to Gaynes Park in Essex. A regular wedding venue for me and one of my firm favourites. I love photographing wedding there and seeing the changes in the gardens throughout the seasons.

The light was just right around 8pm. I took the guys for a quick walk around the venue for some wedding portrait photography. It’s just so much better to wait for this kind of soft romantic light and I encourage all my clients to try ans schedule portraits for the evening.

Emotional and heart-felt speeches. Just the right balance of sincerity and humour.


Wow Jenni…thank you so much for your kind words as feedback!

Searching for a wedding photographer was one of the first things we did once we had set a date for the wedding as it was always important to us that we had amazing photo’s to look back on and remind us of our special day. With so many wedding photographers in Essex it initially seemed a daunting task to narrow it down but as soon as I looked through Simon’s portfolio I knew we had found our photographer. It was both the quality of the photographs and the natural emotions that he seemed to capture that drew us to Simon and he did not let us down when it came to our big day. Apart from the posed group family/friend shots and a few of me and my husband around the grounds, we honestly did not know he was there! After looking through our final photographs we found ourselves wondering how he captured so many brilliant shots as we didn’t even realise he was in that place taking that photo on the day. He captured so many different photo’s which really help to tell the story of the day and they will be something we will treasure forever and proudly show off to anyone! Simon’s passion for photography was evident throughout the day and really shows in our final photo’s. I will be recommending Simon to any future friends or family looking for a wedding photographer in Essex.

Fantastic photos as ever Simon. They were such a lovely couple and the venue both the Church and the Reception were amazing.
