The Wedding of Alex & Alyshia at Essendon Country Club

I love Essendon Country Club Weddings! The Saturday before Christmas I photographed the marriage of Alex & Alyshia (http://www.essendonweddings.co.uk) at this lovely venue in Hatfield. Although it was December, and given the recent snow, we were predicted to have a dry day!

I arrived at the house of Alyshia’s parents in the morning and immediately grabbed photos of the preparations and then went to get shots of the dress and shoes.

I also had the pleasure of working alongside Shelley and Torz from Videos of Elegance (​https://www.videosofelegance.co.uk) who captured the Bridal preparations all the way through to the first dance.

I always love the shot of where Dad gets to see his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress. We then headed off to the venue to catch up with the Groom and his Best Man.

Due to the number of guests, we decided to split the photos and take some in the evening so I could spend some time with the Bride & Groom for their portrait shots.
