Friern Manor Wedding Photography – Emily & Scott

Friern Manor Essex Wedding Photography

On a warm Saturday in June Emily and Scott came together at Friern Manor in Dunton, Essex to become Mr & Mrs Ainsworth.

A wedding I had been looking forward to for quite some time, I first met with Emily almost two years to the day exactly.  Arriving at the bridal suite upstairs at Friern Manor I was greeted by Emily and her bridesmaids, make-up artist and hair stylists, the day was off to a flying start with everyone very excited for what was to come.

With a good quantity of bubbly flowing, and only some of it ending up on the ceiling (see if you can guess which of the photos below explains how that happened!), spirits were high.  In her dress and all dolled up Emily was looking Beautiful, I was looking forward to seeing Scott’s reaction when he was to finally lay eyes on his bride as she walked down the aisle.

Meanwhile Scott was down in the garden well out of sight from the bridal suite greeting their guests as they started to arrive.  From a little bit of clock watching I got the feeling that there were some pre wedding nerves, but he was controlling them well.

As the ceremony began and Emily took her walk up the aisle guided by her father, Scott waiting at the front, you could see everyone was in awe of how beautiful she looked.  A beautiful ceremony filled with happy emotion, it’s a wonder there were still some dry eyes, although a tear or twenty may have been shed by the bridesmaids.

Then it was time for the celebrations to really begin.  Thanks to the beautiful sunny and warm weather, and the well kept and intimate surroundings of the garden at Friern Manor, the party stayed out doors well into the evening with people only venturing indoors for the wedding breakfast and the first dance.  Perfect.

Later into the evening I noticed a rather nice orange sunset was starting to develop, with the the sun beginning to set over the fields behind the venue.  Without any persuasion needed Emily and Scott agreed to take a moment for something a little more adventurous.  Venturing into the field we set up a couple of carefully positioned flashed and came away with some stunning sunset shots of the new Mr & Mrs Ainsworth.  Congratulations!
