essex Summer Wedding
ARIANA & JAMES’S
This Essex wedding at Gosfield Hall was just epic! Ariana and James flew in all the way from Canada to celebrate their wonderful wedding with friends and family from both sides of the Atlantic, and the weather was just simply wonderful on this very warm August day.
Morning bridal preparations for this Summer Wedding in essex
As with 99% of my weddings, I always start at bridal prep and normally get there about 3 hours before the ceremony is due to start. Ariana was pretty much ready and all that was needed was some stunning makeup provided by Huda Make up and I have to say her work is amazing and suited Ariana’s skin tone perfectly! With plenty of time in hand, we were able to maximise the photography, which for morning preparations is quite uncommon as time is normally always against wedding photographers. Both Ariana and James looked totally awesome in their respective dress and suits (Ariana was the one wearing the dress in case of any confusion).
The ceremony for the wedding took place in the courtyard and to say it was a little warm is a gross understatement! It was really hot, like sweating buckets kind of hot! It was, however, a wonderful ceremony and was a fitting way to get married for Ariana & James, who clearly prefer and like a traditional setting for their wedding day in Essex.
The wedding breakfast
The wedding breakfast was a chance to finally sit down and take it all in, we nipped in here just before the guests to get some photos of the Bride and Groom in the room alone. After the food and speeches, the real fun really kicked off and there were loads of dancing and some crazy dance shots too. All in all, it was a wonderful day at one of the finest Essex wedding venues!
