It was an Essendon Country Club Wedding for Tania & Martin at this lovely venue (http://www.essendonweddings.co.uk/). It was a gorgeous sunny morning and I met up with the Groom and his Groomsmen. As the bride did not want coverage of the bridal preparations, I had time to capture the small details at the venue.
The guests arrived on a double-decker bus and the bride followed shortly afterwards.
The bride had a fairy tale wedding, arriving in a horse-drawn carriage.
The Wedding Ceremony
As the bride had arrived, it was time for the wedding ceremony to begin.
I always try to capture that first shot of the groom looking around at his bride.
As it was a relatively intimate wedding, we decided to grab a group shot of all the guests on the staircase.
We headed outside for the drinks reception. After which I took the couple off for their portrait shots around the grounds of the venue.
After an adventurous ride on the back of a golf buggy, we arrived at our first stop for some wedding photos.
We also stopped off at a number of lakes around the venue.
After a few more photos, we headed back to the venue so that could relax with their guests. As the grounds of Essendon Country Club are so vast, there are a huge variety of picturesque locations to grab wedding photos at.
Upon arrival, all the guests were already prepared for the confetti shot. This is one of my favourite parts of the day, capturing the natural smiles from the bride and groom.
For the family photos, we had a lovely backdrop of the lakes in the background. In other words, this location is a photographer’s dream.
