Shepherds Cottage Wedding, Wantisden Valley – Ellie & Alexis

| by tomarcher | comments.

Ellie and Alexis’ wedding was by the far the smallest I have photographed and it was a breath of fresh air to shoot such a different wedding. With only 15 guests of family and closest friends, Ellie and Alexis got married in a cute little cottage in the middle of the Suffolk countryside. After the wedding it was back to Ellie’s parents house for the reception in the woods behind the house complete with an amazing buffet spread, lots of wine and a fire pit. The whole day was so laid back and a real pleasure to be part of.

Peldon Marquee Wedding – Helen & Tom

| by tomarcher | comments.

Helen and Tom’s wedding was laid back and good fun. The reception was held in a marquee in Helen’s parents’ garden with beautiful views looking down towards Abberton Reservoir . There were lots of guests and a really good blues band that really got the party going. I may have even busted a few moves on the dance floor myself!

Notley Abbey Wedding, Buckinghamshire – Kate & Matt

| by tomarcher | comments.

It was my first time at Notley Abbey and I was impressed. Set in the countryside of Buckinghamshire, the abbey is a stunning building with even better grounds. They even throw in a vintage car as an extra (see the photo below). Kate was a very laid back bride and made my life really easy and both her and Matt were a pleasure to photograph. Thanks for having me guys!

Amy & Darren – engagement session Highwoods, Colchester

| by tomarcher | comments.

I met Amy and Darren just round the corner from my house last night in Highwoods Park. I am photographing their wedding in a month’s time and they wanted pre wedding photos. I have wanted to take some shots around Highwoods for a while and the weather was just perfect for it!

Missenden Abbey Wedding – Laura & Lewis

| by tomarcher | comments.

Missenden Abbey is a former monastery founded in 1133 and is a beautiful building. The land that surrounds it is even more beautiful with some amazing places for photos (as you can see from the bridge below). I had never met Laura and Lewis when they booked me to photograph their wedding but had heard a lot about them. They had moved into my room several years ago when I left Australia and are still out there. They flew back to the UK for the wedding. They are a lovely, laid back couple who made my job easy and it was a pleasure to photograph their wedding.

Edburton Wedding, West Sussex – Amelia & Phil

| by tomarcher | comments.

Amelia and Phil’s wedding was set in the beautiful gardens of Amelia’s parents house out in the countryside of West Sussex. Things were hectic in the morning, with kids running around everywhere and there was a lot of excitement in the air. I certainly didn’t run short of interesting and emotional moments throughout the day. With a forecast set for heavy rain I think in the end we were truly blessed to have plenty of sun (even if there were a few heavy showers in between) and the below shot at sunset says it all.  Amelia & Phil wedding  103 (more…)

Crabbs Barn wedding, Kelvedon – Rachel & Will

| by tomarcher | comments.

I’ve wanted to photograph in some lavender fields (I have since learnt it was more likely potato) for a long time and I finally got the chance at my good friends Rachel and Will’s wedding. I had a field day (excuse the pun) with the vivid colours that fit perfectly against the contrast of the traditional dress of the bride and groom. It was a beautiful and relaxed wedding and we all had a great dance in the evening (hence lots of dance photos!). Big thanks to Marianne Chua who did an amazing job second shooting and really helped to catch the candids and emotions of the day.

Lake District Wedding – Lisa & Dom

| by tomarcher | comments.

From day one Dom and Lisa told me they wanted this to be a very different wedding and they didn’t disappoint. They called the day ‘Wedfest’ and made the day like a mini festival with a couple of bands and DJs playing, a bouncy castle, tug of war and a coconut shy! On top of that they arrived to the venue with the wedding party on a tractor! The whole day was very laid back and they made my job very easy. The weather was up and down but generally we were lucky with sun most of the day. I chose the below photo for the cover photo because it was a bit different for me. I love the dark grittiness but in no way was it indicative of the day! The backdrop of the Lake District was stunning, I could have photographed there all week! Thanks for having me guys.

East Mersea Hall Wedding, Essex – Lauren & Mark

| by tomarcher | comments.

Wow what a month! Finally got round to blogging Lauren and Marks wedding at the beautiful East Mersea Hall. It was a great day (and the most crazy party at a wedding I have been to in a while!). I finished up at midnight and had to leave at 5 in the morning for Africa. I got back from Africa last week and travelled straight up to the Lake District from my friends Dom and Lisas wedding which will be up on the blog soon (along with some from Africa). Watch this space!
