Jemma and Simons wedding at the Fennes was a joyful celebration on a day with a truly autumnal feel. As a London Wedding photographer I love spending time in the city’s parks but heading off to this beautiful country house wedding really reminded me how majestic the changing of the seasons can be. The bride started her day gettign ready surrounded by family and friends, with her sisters on hand to help her get dressed. A short trip from the Fennes in a beautiful vintage Bentley and and the ceremony could start in the very beautiful Little Easton Church, which dates back to Norman times. The brides dress looked so dramatic in the church with the train spilling across the hundreds of years old floor. Though the sun graced the day at intervals, the occasional gust of wind helped remind us what time of year it truly was! Celebrations continued at the Fennes Manor House in Bocking, where the autumnal theme was brought inside, as well as out. Beautiful arrangements of pumpkins, leaves and all things rustic were so of the place and moment. The attention to detail made the occasion even more unique. The couples’ special bench acted as a very personal signing board for friends and family to write their messages to the happy couple. Silver birch branches held the names of the guests at each table setting. Speeches (both on and off screen) brought lots of laughter as well as a few tears before dancing and more dancing.
