Wow wow wow! We just absolutely love them Alexis! I can’t tell you how pleased we are with them. They are simply perfect. We’ve just watched the slideshow all the way through – Wow! It brought back the day absolutely perfectly! I can’t thank you enough for capturing the day the way you did. It really, really is special!
Notley Abbey Weddings are just beautiful! The beauty of Notley Abbey makes it the perfect venue in any season. Add a beautiful, lovely and caring couple like Natasha and Ben and you have an ideal wedding!
Notley Abbey is one of those venues that will look amazing in the summer and will look also cozy in autumn, when the wedding of Natasha and Ben took place. The venue is elegant and the staff are just amazing, very professional indeed.
The day started with a few getting ready shots at Notley abbey, before driving to Great Hampden where the religious ceremony took place. A beautiful service! We were able to dodge the rain that started when the newly married couple were leaving the church. It rained for a little bit during the drinks reception but it cleared afterwards. The variety of rooms at Notley Abbey is ideal, as people are able to walk around and not be contained to just one place if it rains.
After the drinks reception, the wedding breakfast was served in the barn and shortly after the three course meal, the speeches followed. I like speeches, especially when they come from the heart. The speeches were beautiful and thoughtful, with the right amount of humour and emotion. After the meal, guests were invited back into the main house for tea and coffee and to greet the evening guests. We took the opportunity also for a few night shots before the first dance.
I am very fortunate that couples understand my style and as such choose to focus on themselves and their guests and let me capture their day, mostly in a reportage way. Natasha and Ben were incredibly open, friendly, sincere, caring and we really had a good laugh in those short moments when we were taking portraits.
Below is a selection of my favourite images for the day, I hope that you like them! Notley Abbey wedding are really magic and if you are considering getting married there, I wholeheartedly recommend the venue… and of course, please get in touch with me if you would like me to capture your day!
