Katie and Matthew were married on the 18th July 014 in their local church St Joseph’s in Upminster followed by the reception at the popular venue Channels in Little Waltham.
On the big day Katie got ready at her parents house with the bridesmaids, this was a lovely sunny day and we made use of taking the ladies outside into the garden before we left for church to capture some fun shots of Katie with the bridesmaids and parents.
Katie wore a beautifully elegant style wedding gown with lots of detail on the outer layer with a lovely train.
Katie and Matthew were accompanies by many of their close friends and family on the day these included 6 bridesmaids and 7 Ushers and Matt’s Best Man.
The bridesmaids wore summery knee length dresses in a deep Purple and held posies with Purple and white flowers which contrasted perfectly. The men, all 10 of them including dad wore matching grey suits with Ivory waistcoats and cravats, the photographs of the men all standing together outside the church steps looked fab!
After the ceremony we made our way back to Channels, S E Photography are the recommended photographers for Channels so we know this venue extremely well,we have plenty of spots at this venue to take some amazing photographs, as we did for Katie and Matthew this day.
Some of the areas we love to make use of with our couples are the beautiful lake full of lily pads, one of our favourite shots is to have our couple one side of the lake and we shoot from the other side capturing you, but also your reflections in the water its so effective and we done exactly this with Katie and Matthew. We also love the long sweeping drive heading in towards the venue and we took some lovely shots of our couple walking hand in hand away from us.
The barn is another favorite spot of ours and we took Katie and Matthew here to have some fun shots taken with our wedding props, the barn looks amazing in the background.
We also stayed to capture some special moments in the evening on this day, its really lovely to catch some lovely evening sun down shots of our couples which we did here for Katie and Matt, and we were also lucky enough to catch some great photographs in the dark with the guests and newly weds having fun with sparklers!
Here are some images from the day..
