Mel & Luke’s Winter Wedding (with a hint of Disney!) at Leez Priory, Essex

This was (probably) going to be my last wedding with Barbara (or at very least, me second shooting for her, she’ll be second-ing for me a few times in the future I’m sure!)

I initially found Barbara with Mel & her girls in the Fisherman’s Cottage (where I spent most of the time showing off my new LED light!)  Then I headed off to find Luke & his boys who had arrived by limo.  Few quick shots here and at the front of Leez Priory before heading back to the girls.
I’m a bit obsessed with my macro lens and using it for the various shots of details throughout the day, combined with the aesthetics of Leez Priory it’s win-win.  Mel had asked for the rings photographed like Mickey – which has now turned out to be one of my favourite rings shots!

The ceremony was held in The Coach House and on the top table featured a single red rose under glass cloche – a la Beauty & The Beast <3
Even though it was December, it wasn’t too cold so we managed plenty of photos outside, but kept the family pictures inside, in front of the fireplace – didn’t want to keep grandparents outside for too long.
Reception was held in the Great Hall in the main building, which is where guests spend the rest of the evening.
