APTON HALL: SARAH & LEE
It was a bit of a wet and rainy Saturday but Sarah and Lee’s big day was finally here and I made my way to the amazing Apton Hall in Rochford to meet Sarah and her bridal party. Everyone was pretty calm and getting ready and there were no nerves in sight. I popped over to see Lee and the boys getting ready and to grab a few snaps of them all too.
It wasn’t long before the ceremony was well under way and any last minute nerves that might have appeared were soon disappearing. There were smiles on everyones faces as the couple said their “I Do’s” and soon the newlyweds were walking back up the aisle as husband and wife.
We had a very small window of time without any rain (or maybe just some very light rain…) and this amazing bride and groom just grabbed an umbrella and happily walked outside. It’s always so great when a couple decide to not let any bad weather get in the way of them enjoying their day and getting the best photos they can, and Sarah and Lee were no exception! We grabbed as many photos as we could before the heavens opened above us. We finished off with one or two more photos inside before jumping into the group shots.
Pretty soon it was time for dinner and speeches. After so much laughter and a few tears too, there was some time just to chill out with guests before the cake cut and first dance. We used some of the time to grab a few night time shots (some of my favourites of the day!) before going back inside to greet the evening guests that were beginning to arrive.
Next up was cake cut, first dance and then everyone joined in for a whole load more dancing! I genuinely really loved Lee and Sarah’s wedding. Thank you both so much for coming outside in the rain and helping me to take some of my favourite photos of the year! I got to shoot at one of my new favourite venues, with definitely one of my favourite couples! Big congrats guys!
