Aimee & Rob's Winter Wedding at Gayne's Park, Epping
I was so excited to be photographing Aimee and Rob's big day at the stunning Gayne's Park in Epping. I haven't worked at Gaynes in such a long time and it's one of my favourite venues so this was definitely something I was looking forward to! And as always, the venue and gorgeous grounds didn't disappoint, even at the height of winter, it's just as stunning as summer time!
When I met Aimee and Rob last year I knew we would get along great straight away. They are such a genuine, laid back couple and I could tell instantly they are just perfect for each other.
On the morning of the wedding, I've never seen such a chilled out bride with 7 bridesmaids!??! Aimee was looking absolutely stunning in her Morilee wedding gown and all her winter details. The bridesmaids wore purple to match the colour theme of the wedding. They also had touches of a Harry Potter theme which worked great with the table plan and settings.
The ceremony was beautiful and emotional and it was really a special time to document. I feel so lucky to be a part of these moments at all of the weddings I photograph, but I really felt touched during Aimee and Rob's vows.
For the bride and groom photos we went for a walk together and really made the most of the grounds and views around Gaynes Park. It was absolutely freezing in the mid-February chill but so worth it! It was treat to work with Aimee and Rob and allow them some time together after the whirlwind morning they'd had.
During the reception, the couple also had a FANTASTIC magician- Spencer Wood to entertain their guests. His work is mind-blowing and really something to witness.
It's been such a treat getting to know Aimee and Rob in the run up to their wedding and it was an amazing celebration to document for them. I hope we keep in touch and I wish you all the best for your happy marriage together.
Here are some of my favourite moments from the wedding day. I hope you enjoy them as much as I loved photographing it!
