Fiona and Steven’s Luxury Boreham House Wedding Photography.
About this time last year, Fiona, Andrew and myself were sitting down over coffee in Chelmsford, Essex.
They were busy planing their big day and were looking for some Boreham House Wedding Photography.
While outside the wind was blowing and the rain was coming down (is every blog this year going to feature the weather?), we were inside talking about the plans for their luxury wedding at Boreham House. I’d not been there before, but as I work a lot in Essex (there are an awful lot of wedding venues in Essex and a great number of people from London get married there), I’d heard quite a lot about Boreham House as one the most popular country house wedding venues.
Fast forward six months and there’s been a total turn around in the weather. It was that glorious summer we had in 2013. Just perfect for a country house wedding. Really, can you imagine a luxury wedding at somewhere like Boreham House and the weather being all yukky? Actually – don’t, people worry far too much about the weather at their weddings. I certainly don’t want to add to that worry. So, forget I even mentioned blurgh weather.
So, as it turned out, we had great weather and the day was being set-up perfectly for their wedding at Boreham House. I’d driven down to Billericay in the morning to photograph Fiona and her bridesmaids getting ready at her parents house. I always enjoy photographing the bridal preparations. It’s a good way for people to relax around me. Sometimes I feel like I’m a dentist or something – people just seem to want to shy away from me. It’s a good job that I’m able to make people feel at ease almost instantly. Because I just quietly go about my job with no fuss people stop worrying about me. This means I get really amazing, natural and relaxed images – and they don’t spend the day worrying about the photographer.
From the parents house, we went through to The Most Holy Redeemer in Billericay. Now, something I’d not been warned about was that not only was Fiona’s dad a twin, but he had another brother who was also almost identical – and he was a priest who would be preforming the ceremony! I’ll never forget his words when I asked about photographs during the ceremony – ‘life happens when it happens – I’m not going to restrict you’. Life happens when it happens. What a great phrase.
Another interesting thing was that he also insisted that before the wedding itself, the entire congregation got up and mingled around saying hello to one another. I’d never seen this before and I thought it was a really lovely touch.
Once the ceremony was over, the bridal party moved onto Boreham House near Chelmsford for the rest of the wedding. The identifier of country house wedding venues is, of course, Pimms. A Boreham House wedding is no different. Lashings of Pimms, lawn darts and croquette – a perfect English country wedding!
So there everyone was in the glorious sunshine drinking Pimms and eating nibbles. It really was a wonderful day. At Boreham House, you can hire a marquee if you wish and Fiona and Steven had chosen this option for their luxury wedding.
After dinner there were some speeches from various members of the wedding party. This is another part of the wedding day I love to photograph. All these people running a total gambit of emotions – laughing one minute, teary eyed the next. Always an emotional rollercoaster ride! This Boreham House wedding photography was no different.
Of course, after dinner and speeches, come dancing. Always a fitting end to a wedding at Boreham House (or any wedding venue really!). I hope you’ll enjoy looking at this Boreham House wedding photography.
