Country Estate Spring Wedding at Hylands House

Sunday was just perfect. I spent the day at Hylands Estate in Chelmsford photographing the absolutely stunning wedding of Keeley and Graham. It was a jam packed day full of love, laughter, lots of tears and amazing sunshine. There were horse and carriage rides, lots of children, incredible grounds and gardens and a whole lot of DONUTS!! haha

I know Keeley and Graham spent so much time organising all the little details for their Country Estate wedding and it really came together perfectly. I think Keeley was so overwhelmed with how perfectly everything was coming together that she really struggled to keep it together during the morning. Seeing her long anticipated vision come together must have been an incredible feeling.

Having 4 children between them- all boys! It was a really family orientated day, which I absolutely LOVED. All the boys were very involved in the wedding- the two little ones- Aaron and James being very smart page boys (at least for the morning until they got rather messy during dinner haha) and of course Graham's two oldest boys- Sam and Nathan by their Dad's side as very proud Best Men all day.

Keeley and Graham decided on a lovely afternoon tea for their day guests and the evening had even more delicious food to be served. Including a huge Indian buffet, a pizza oven, and the best dessert table I have ever seen! These two know how to do food!

We took a little walk to the gardens at Hylands Estate and it was honestly SO worth it. The incredibly hot and sweaty day had cooled a little by now and the light was just perfect. The Wisteria in May is just THE BEST! I could not believe how pretty the gardens looked. Keeley and Graham could not have been luckier with their timing for the gardens to be at their best.

After the cake cut, the first dance kicked off the evening and the rest is history!

What an incredible day for me to have been lucky enough to be a part of and one I will not forget for a very long time. Thank you to Keeley and Graham and your wonderful friends and family for having us and making us feel so welcome on the day.

Also, huge thanks to my second Photographer Emma Gosling on the day.
