Zoe and Chris DeBond’s wedding at Friern Manor, Dunton, Brentwood

Zoe and Chris were married at Friern Manor in Dunton, Brentwood on the 16th August 2014.

Our bride opted for a strapless Ivory full wedding gown on the day and held a very pretty handmade bouquet made of Pearls, here at S E photography we can offer our brides something similar through our sister company who offer rental of our handmade bouquets carefully crafted from vintage brooches absolutely beautiful, why not check out our website www.wishes4weddings.co.uk, the couple also hired one of our Red postboxes which looked great as a centre piece in the James Bond themed reception and also keeping the guest cards safe, these are also available from  wishes4weddings.

Zoe was accompanied on the day by 3 bridesmaids who were dressed in Black floor length dresses holding Cream lily posies, there were also 2 little flower girls who looked so pretty in the little Cream dresses to match the brides.

After catching some lovely photographs with Zoe and the bridesmaids and flowergirls in the venue grounds we met up with our Groom Chris and the Groomsmen.  They were dressed in  very smart morning suits with Black jackets, pinstriped trousers, and Silver Grey waistcoats and Cravats, looking very swish! We captured some great images of the guys as groups by the lake and under the pretty willow trees.

With sadness Chris’s best man Danny passed away prior to the wedding, so in his memory the wedding party had a balloon release which was a lovely touch we were sure to capture this special moment which meant so much to the couple.

After the ceremony we took our newly weds off for their couple shots around the grounds, there are some lovely areas here to capture some special moments, on the day we made use of the lovely Greenery areas, the front of the venue with the manor house settled in the background which looked lovely this time of the year when all the bright Green ivy is covering the front walls and next to the lake.

We also had great fun with capturing some great images of the couple using our wedding props, including the chalkboards, vintage picture frame, and Love letters we even had them in their reflective sunglasses which made really great photographs!

Here are some images from the day..
