Mulberry House Essex Wedding for Rebecca and Thomas

It was our first visit to Mulberry House where Rebecca and Thomas were getting married, what a lovely venue and very helpful staff.Rebecca and her bridesmaids were all getting ready in the bedrooms where we met them for some finishing touches and then it was out of the main house and into the ceremony.

After the ceremony although a little chilly  we were very lucky with the weather and managed to get photos outside before the rain showers.Rebecca and Thomas were great sports and good to photography, after the wedding breakfast and speeches everyone made their way into the conservatory where a magician was keeping everyone amused with his tricks, poor nan couldn’t quite work out how he moved a dot from one hand to the other !!

Then once the disco was set up it was back over for the first dance and cake cutting and time to party!

Thank you Rebecca and Thomas for letting us be part of your special day.

Layer Marney Tower Essex Wedding for Mary-Anne and Harry

The day started with a visit to Mary-Anne who was getting ready at her sister’s house, there was lots of hustle and bustle going on with all the wedding preparations and we were lucky to capture a few bridal shots of Mary-Anne before we made our way to Great Baddow Church.What a stunning church it was, really bright with lots of room and a really lovely balcony to photograph from as well.

After a lovely Church service we headed off to the stunning Layer Marney Tower which made a beautiful back drop for all the wedding photos.The sun was shining and there was lots of fun and laughter during the drinks reception.

Mary-Anne and Harry had gone for two long tables set in the Long Gallery for their wedding breakfast which looked stunning and great to photograph the speeches.

The day ended with a busy dance floor and after the first few dances we said our goodbyes, we would like to thank Mary-Anne and Harry for letting us capture their special day.

Lovely New USB and Print Product for Suffolk Essex Wedding Photographers Pengelly Photography

We are always looking to provide the best possible quality service and products to our customers here at Pengelly Photography so though we would share this absolutely beautiful product that arrived this week at Pengelly HQ !

With the digital age as it is everyone wants their images on a USB stick, “hey thats fine” we say but “please don’t forget to print” so what better way to combine the two but have a box which shows off some beautifully presented prints and USB stick as well.

We have gone for the larger box with 10″x8″ prints but you are also able to get a smaller box with 7″x5″prints.

What a fantastic keepsake from your wedding or environmental shoot, we can’t wait to show all our couples this beautiful product.

Katharine and Kirk’s wedding at The Reid Rooms Essex for Pengelly Photography

It has been a little while since we have been back to The Reid Rooms, buy was great to be here for Katharine and Kirk’s wedding.

We were recommended to Katherine and Kirk by Ollie and Lauren who we photographed last year so it was really great to see them again at the wedding.

The weather was very windy and the odd heavy shower unfortunately meant that the outdoor ceremony could not go ahead but that did not put a dampener on the day and Katherine and Kirk were still going to have a really great fun day with all their friends and family.

The ceremony went ahead indoors and the sun came out just in time for our group photos and couple shots with the sky at times making for a dramatic backdrop.

After some very funny speeches the day ended with lots of laughter and dancing !

Thank you Katharine and Kirk for letting us be part of your special day. x

Prints V USB Drive-Pengelly Photography

In this current digital world the debate is what do you prefer a beauitiful print in a beauitiful frame or a USB Drive that will be stored on your computer and images never seeing the light of day or have you thought now this is a big thought will you be able to view your USB Drive in say 5 years time??

With the current wedding market we are asked often for just a USB Drive and we have asked our Bride & Grooms what do you do with your images nearly 85% say they just store them on their laptop or home computer how sad that beauitiful images are not printed 🙁

Please take a look at the image below and make your own mind up what looks better the print and frame on the left or the USB Drive on the right, I know what looks better of course the print and frame the USB Drive does not have the same impact on your wall?

pengelly-photography
It has been said that the current younger generation will be a faceless society as everything is stored on a smart phone, it has been said that in 20 years maybe less time there will be no prints/photographs to show and it has also been said in certain quarters historians are worried as they will not have any prints to show.

Have you thought in 20 years time will you still be able to play or view your digital files as technology is changing rapidly look at history we had the floppy disc then the CD then the DVD now the USB Drive are you still going to be able to view these on your laptop when changes are made as most files are to be stored on the Cloud now???

With a print it is timeless a moment in time to show and be admired for years the life of a current print is 150 years can this be said with your USB Drive.

If you have a USB Drive go and print them whether this is through Pengelly Photography or another printer but PRINT PRINT PRINT!!!!

With Christmas fast approaching it would be a perfect time to get that USB Drive out and get some prints printed to share with friends and family 🙂

Please dont be a faceless society.

Wedding of Kenny and Emily at White Hart Gt Yeldham Essex for Pengelly Photography

The day had finally come for Kenny and Emily who had booked us 3 years in advance !

We had photographed Kenny’s Sisters wedding a few years before so it was great to see all the family again. We arrived at The White Hart Gt Yeldham where Emily and her Bridesmaids were having hair and make up with the lovely and very talented ladies, Emma Quinn of Pretty Faces Make Up and Tina Crossley of Beautiful Hair 4 Weddings .

Emily looked stunning in her purple dress and Kenny had a purple suit to match, we love different and Kenny’s cane and hat worked so well with the suit.

The theme for the day was Tim Burton’s films and Emily and Kenny’s attention to detail was fabulous with all the table decorations along with their super cake to fit in with the theme.

Unfortunately the weather was not playing ball today so all the group photos had to be taken inside but we had a lovely area to do photos.

Emily had prior to the wedding organised for us to go to Colne Valley Railway to do some photos and even though it was still raining  we made our way and took our chances, and boy were we glad we did, the rain stopped and even the sun came out for a short while so we were able to get some really creative shots, then we made our way back to the venue where we quickly got everyone outside for the large group before the rain started again.

After speeches Kenny and Emily had arranged for a magician and caricaturist to go around the tables keeping everyone entertained while tables were cleared ready for the evening entertainment.

The happy couple had arranged some special entertainment for their guests so after the first dance we all made our way outside to be entertained by fire eaters doing a display.

Wow what an amazing day, thank you Emily and Kenny for letting us be part of your special day.

Essex Wedding at The Barn Brasserie, Essex for Pengelly Photography Essex & Suffolk Wedding Photography

Another lovely Spring wedding from last year of Gemma and Ross who were married at All Saints Church, Shrub End followed by their wedding reception at The Barn Brasserie, Essex

It was great to work with the lovely Tina Crossley who did the hair and Chantelle who was doing the makeup and all was running to time on the morning so we were able to do all the home visit shots before we went onto meet Ross at the church. Gemma looked stunning with her 1920’s look and beautifully detailed dress.After a very lovely Church ceremony and a few group shots taken at the church we made our way to the Barn Brasserie, on route as things were running ahead we decided to stop off at the viaduct for a few photos, Gemma was a great sport climbing up our ladders and with the help of Ross we were able to get some great photos of them both on the viaduct.

We then made our way to the venue where all the guests were waiting for the happy couple, after grabbing a quick drink we whisked Gemma and Ross off for a few more together shots before they joined all their guests for the wedding breakfast.It was a great fun filled day finishing off with lots of dancing !

Here is a small selection of photos from their wedding and thank you Gemma and Ross for letting us be part of your special day.

Lauren and Ollie’s Wedding at Channels Golf Club Essex-Pengelly Photography Essex & Suffolk Wedding Photography

Another beautiful Spring wedding for us at Pengelly Photography with the very lovely Lauren and Ollie, a couple so full of fun and life we knew we were going to have a ball on their wedding day !

We met Lauren who was getting ready at one of the lodges at Channels busily having her hair and make up done, it was also lovely to work with Bridget and Colin of Colbridge Films.Another bride who did not stop smiling and laughing all day.

We absolutely loved Lauren’s wedding dress and it all fitted in really well with the bridesmaids  dresses and the guy’s suits.We met up with Ollie and the guys for their photos and it was lovely to meet Ollie’s family who had flown over from Australia for the wedding.

After a beautiful ceremony we went outside for the drinks reception where we did a few group photos and then took the happy couple off for a few together shots.The Essex Barn at Channels looked lovely as usual and always a joy to photograph here with the friendly staff.As the evenings stay lighter for longer it is always great to be able to get back outside for a few more photos and its a great opportunity for the couple to chill and walk off their meal !

Here are a few photos to show you what a wonderful day was had by all.

Thank you Lauren and Ollie for letting us be part of your special day.
