Wedding Photography at The Old Parish Rooms, Rayleigh

The Old Parish Rooms Wedding

Anna and James married at the Old Parish Rooms in Rayleigh, Essex this weekend and it was just perfect! I have had the pleasure of working at the Old Parish Rooms a couple of times and I must say, it's such a beautiful, intimate wedding venue. The Old Parish Rooms is very quirky with some gorgeous original features of the school house, combined with a fresh modern touch.

Anna and James were very much interested in a natural style of photography for their wedding. They decided to go for minimal group shots and allowed me to capture their day as it unfolded, which I LOVED! It's so nice to have a couple trust me so much with their wedding day and allow me the freedom to capture it in such an authentic way.

I absolutely loved Anna’s Madison James Bridal dress. The detailing on it was unreal and so delicate. She looked absolutely stunning!! I also fell in love with her choice of pastel coloured wild wedding flowers with a pop of bright pink for the bouquets and decor. The florist- Blume Lifestyle- based just down the road from the Old Parish Rooms is very talented! I loved the simple and elegant style for the wedding decor. This venue doesn’t need much adding to it’s charm, so the flowers and table decor was plenty.

Thank you Anna and James for having me share your special day with you both! It was an absolute treat and you are both so easy to work with and so much fun to be around. It was a true pleasure.

Here are some highlights from the day...
