Hello there Pengelly Photography blog readers,
Today we have a wedding that we photographed last year, being so busy and with the launch of the new website we have fallen a bit behind on our blog, so although they won’t all be in order we are going to do our best to catch up on all the lovely weddings we have been photographing.
We started off at The Mill Hotel where Rachel and her Bridesmaids were getting ready on this sunny day, there was lots of champagne flowing and the girls were being pampered with hair and makeup.
Their ceremony was held at Pentlow Church, one of six round towered churches in Essex and when we had finished at the hotel this is where we met Matthew and his Groomsmen for photos.
As guests arrived at the church on a Routemaster, which are proving to be very popular at weddings and makes great photography we waited for Rachel to arrive in her beautiful vintage car which a friend of the family had lent them for their wedding day how amazing is that !Their reception was held at the very lovely Smeetham Hall Barn which looked stunning as always.
As guests enjoyed drinks an canopes in the beautiful sunshine we took Rachel and Matthew up to the main house for their photos,Rachel and Matthew are a real fun couple and this is what they wanted to come across in their wedding photographs, so with the Pengelly magic and a few props we were well away. Another Pengelly classic is our guy shots with the hats and cigars which Matthew really wanted to do and I think with the posing and attitude they pulled this one off to a tee!
After the wedding breakfast we were treated to some music in the marquee by the Groom himself and some of the guests, it was great to listen to and watch everyone dancing and enjoying themselves- that’s what weddings are all about.
The evening was finished off with even more music, this time a Beatles tribute band who maybe didn’t look too much like the Beatles but boy did they sound like them, even Kevin and I had a dance, it’s just got to be done!
All in all a fun wedding day had by all.
